In early February 2018, Shervin Pishevar opened the floodgates on his ideas about why the US economy was headed downward. This was all after a significant drop in the stock market. Shervin Pishevar sent out 50 tweets in 21 hours pointing out reasons he felt the US economy was spiraling out of control and would see another drop in the stock market by at least 6,000 points in the coming months. The vast majority of his tweets were dark.

One of the most ominous forecasts was in regard to the big five unicorns. This includes Alphabet, Amazon, Apple, Google, and Microsoft. He anticipates a possible downfall of these big companies. He refers to them as being giants that are built on a monopoly framework. He says they will fall, as they should. Shervin Pishevar seems to feel that most have a blind eye as far as the power of these giant companies is concerned. However, he believes that their influence is not good for the US economy, especially considering the fact that they can buy out small start-up competitors. He feels that this will ultimately cause the entire system to fail.

When the stock market takes a dramatic dive, the government often uses a tool called quantitative easing to re-correct the market. Shervin Pishevar acknowledges that this tool has been used successfully in the past to correct the market. However, he warned that people should not be fooled when the government pulls this tool out again. He says that it has been used too many times to continue to be effective.

Shervin Pishevar has a globalist perspective and seems to feel that there is some hope. Toward the end of his tweet storm, he mentioned that when the middlemen are irrelevant, people will be able to have a global economy that is more efficient and frictionless. He has spent several years fighting for a more transparent society.

Throughout the 50 points mentioned on Twitter, Shervin Pishevar touches on challenges that are specific to politics and nationalism. He even mentioned some cultural trends. Besides the 6,000 point decline that he anticipates for the stock market, it appears that his concerns are broader than that.

There is a biotech company on the market that has recently made claims of a new breakthrough drug that can fight cystic fibrosis for patients by improving lung performance drastically. However, Kerrisdale Capital has researched and reviewed these statement by Proteostasis and has found that they are most likely a load of hooey. This market has largely been dominated by Vertex for many years, and Sahm Adrangi suspects this new drug is more of a chemical cocktail that has no real results behind it.

The trial done by proteostasis one consisted of four patients and after some diffing, Kerrisdale found that the increase in performance that this biotech company is claiming their drug provides is actually because of a slight drop in performance among the placebo group. This gap in percentages is most likely due to poor testing procedure says Kerrisdale Capital.

One of the most important questions that Sahm Adrangi poses is what will happen to the company should their drug not be successful like they claim it to be? Currently, the value of the company is mostly derived from their product, which means they stand to drop in share value by upwards of 90 percent should this drug prove worthless. This lets Sahm believe that Proteostasis is willing to fabricate their data and push out a drug cocktail in order to profit or at least maintain their company value.

Sahm Adrangi is hardly wrong with his reports and he always digs deep in order to find the most accurate data when he puts the word out about a company, whether good or bad. This is why so many people follow the words of Sahm Adrangi. The fall in Proteostasis share value after Kerrisdale’s report came out is a testament to this fact. After Kerrisdale took the short position on Proteostasis, the biotech companies share values have dropped upwards of 20 percent, causing them to sell over nine million shares to maintain their funds.

People love to hear of a real life Horatio Alger story, someone who is capable of rising from rags to riches through sheer hard work, dedication and development of their personal talents. However, in an increasingly financialized and globalized world, such stories seem to be vanishingly rare. It is for this reason that finding seemingly clear examples of these stories can be so inspiring. But frequently, what at first appears to be someone who is able to buck the odds turns out to be merely a cold professional who was playing the odds all along.

In the case of Luiz Carlos Trabuco, it’s hard to make a judgement either way. As one of the few people in Brazilian corporate history who has risen completely through the ranks of one of the largest companies in the country, Trabuco’s rise through Bradesco is unquestionably a testament to his own grit, drive and talent. On the other hand, in an ironic twist, it turns out that Trabuco himself became one of the leading forces for policies within the company that could be described as globalist and financializing. For these latter tendencies, Trabuco can hardly be criticized. In fact, most observers would readily admit that he was one of the leading forces within Bradesco that enabled the bank’s incredible rise from a tiny local concern into one of the most powerful holding companies in Latin America.

Still, it isn’t so much that Trabuco was able to bend the constraints of money and power to his own personality. On the contrary, it was the constraints of money and power that seemed to increasingly shape him throughout his career.

From uneducated high school grad to worldly sophisticate

Trabuco first came to work at Bradesco when he was just 18 years old. Hired on as a bank teller, he had only a high school diploma and was excited to be hired on, even if it was the lowliest position that the bank could offer.

But over the next 10 years, Trabuco would slowly begin rising through the ranks. At first appointed shift manager, he quickly won the confidence of his superiors, being appointed to positions of increasing responsibility. At the same time, he was able to put himself through school, eventually receiving a master’s degree in social psychology. This combination of rigorous academic credentials and increasingly vast experience within the bank and all its business lines eventually made Trabuco a formidable candidate for promotion. In 1984, he was offered his first executive role within the firm.

Appointed to the head of the marketing department, Trabuco inherited a unit that had never been managed in what many bankers might refer to as a professional style. Using his academic background and extensive knowledge of international banking markets, he quickly moved to bring Bradesco’s marketing strategy in line with that seen at the most successful financial institutions of North America. His reforms proved to be a huge success, with the bank’s sales increasing and relationships with local media being stronger than they had ever been. But this also marked the beginning of Trabuco’s personal influence over the strategies and business model of the bank.

He began using a marketing strategy of going after higher-end clients. The success he saw with doing this would prove crucial later in his career, when he was in a position to really begin making profound changes.

In 1992, Trabuco was appointed head of the bank’s financial planning division. There, he immediately moved to create a multi-tiered banking service, with the bank’s wealthiest and most high-value clients receiving a level of service far higher than the ordinary customers. This transformation of the bank into an institution that sought to cater to the very wealthy proved to be an enormous success. The financial planning division quickly grew from just 3 percent of revenues to nearly 30, marking an astonishing period of growth.

Trabuco’s rise was swift and steep. But it came at the abandonment of the bank’s older, more egalitarian customer service model.
