When Tesla Motors founder Elon Musk revealed his plan to create subterranean tunnels for transportation, many logistics sightseers could not stand but agree that his journey to accomplishing the project will face many challenges. However, JD.com a China-based e-commerce market leader recently announced its plan on working on a similar underground passage for parcel delivery to clients.The announcement of the new logistics development was made public at JD.com’s 2018 Global Smart Supply Chain Summit held in Beijing. The company stated that it plans to create an independent logistics center that will be recognized as Urban Smart Logistics Institute and will be given the mandate to enhance plans for urban logistics hubs, top-notch styling for modern logistics systems and large data and cloud compiling forums for logistic purposes.

The center will be run and managed by a joint number of a reputable business and academic characters from Shangai Municipal Engineering Design Institute, Beijing Wuzi University, Beijing Jiaotong University, Nankai University, The Institute of Comprehensive Transportation at The National Development and Reform Commission, Sinotrans&CSC and the Shanghai Maritime University. The team should be able to accomplish quality standards on the final report with all the technical and human resource at hand.According to Jingdong, on their “to-do list” is a task required to determine if the underground logistics systems can utilize incorporated metropolitan pipe subways and subterranean paths.

The theory might sound scientifically and geographically impossible, but the JD.com company believes with enough allocation of resources and research, this might be the answer to satisfying urban models.Creating these underground tunnels will mean that the heavy freight vehicles that contribute to the immense traffic and environmental pollution in urban models will be eliminated. If Jingdong succeeds in creating an effective underground delivery system, the massive urban logistics operations will be more environmentally friendly as well as creating space for other transport systems left in the ground. With the eradication of at least half of the traffic, the new streets will enjoy an aesthetic feeling.China’s growing urbanization will benefit immensely from the project if it is actualized before the rest of the world jumps into the bandwagon.

 

It’s been said that all financial innovation is reducible to new ways of packaging, repackaging and selling debt. Similarly, it could be said that all central banking policies may simply amount to new ways of kicking the can of financial reckoning down the road and then selling it to the public as some sort of ingenious solution to an intractable problem.

Shervin Pishevar would probably argue in favor of the latter position. Shervin Pishevar is one of the most influential figures in the world of tech finance. He is the founder and president of Investment company, a venture financing company that has been behind the creation of some of the most important ventures in the technology sector. Companies that Investment company has been instrumental in the creation of include Virgin Hyperloop, Uber and Airbnb. Additionally, Shervin Pishevar himself has been behind the creation of a large number of tech companies, including Social Gaming Network, WebOS and Ionside.

But Shervin Pishevar may be best known for the many insights that he shares with the world via his Twitter feed. With more than 100,000 followers, Shervin Pishevar has the eyes of some of the top thought leaders and influencers in the nation. Therefore, his many opinions often carry serious weight among the technological elite.

Recently, Shervin Pishevar discussed the use and overuse of quantitative easing by the nation’s central bank. The Federal Reserve has embarked on a program of purchasing treasury securities with money created from thin air over the last decade. This program, in conjunction with the lowering of interest rates, has flooded the market with cheap credit. It has also enabled the government to continue running massive deficits.

While quantitative easing has succeeded in spurring on one of the longest bull markets in the history of the stock market, Pishevar warns that it is quickly reaching its limits. Eventually, says Pishevar, even the credit of the United States will be downgraded to junk in the eyes of the world’s bond buyers if they fear that the country will need to sharply devalue its currency in order to make good on its obligations.

It has not been long since Shervin Pishevar took on the US government with some controversial tweets on social media. He accused the government of neglecting some important factor that used to contribute to the country’s economy in the past. The negligence of which he alleged the government has led to the dragging of the country’s economy to the extent that it could soon be overtaken by other upcoming economies like the Chinese. China’s economy is growing rapidly due to the strong relationships that it has established with the developing countries. These countries have changed their priorities regarding imports and other factors of international trade to focus on China. With this trend, Shervin Pishevar predicts that China could soon overtake the United States in its Superpower title.

Shervin Pishevar also criticizes the government for allowing a few organizations in the industry to control the economy of the country. He states that the monopoly that has been allowed on some multinational firms has discouraged the investors from starting up businesses because they impose unfriendly regulatory requirements that scare them away from the industry. Some of the firms that were mentioned were Facebook, Amazon, Apple, Alphabet, and the Microsoft.

Shervin Pishevar also expressed his agitation for the value of bitcoin. He indicated that the bitcoin is expected to depreciate soon. However, the value of the cryptocurrency is expected to rise again and finally stabilize at the value between two thousand and five thousand dollars. This was quite astonishing to hear especially to the bitcoin investors. Shervin continued to criticize the way the bond market had been behaving. He states that the volatility of the bonds was becoming riskier and it would, in the end, affect the performance of the whole of the equity market. He was very quite categorical stating that this would not take too long to happen; it was a matter of weeks if not days.

Since then, Shervin Pishevar had remained silent until the recent appearance on Twitter.
