The global economy is under siege. Trump’s proposed tariffs will create a trade war no one wants. If the trade war gets real, there’s a solid chance a global recession will be one of the by-products. Shervin Pishevar, the Silicon Valley investor, knows how fragile the global economy is. He went on a Twitter rant recently to let people know economic rain clouds are forming, and there’s going to be some serious damage from that economic rain.
Shervin Pishevar is a savvy investor. He is usually one of the first investors to spot startups that have revenue-producing potential. He invested in Uber before it went mainstream. And he invested in Warby Parker, Hyperloop One, Postmates, and other startups that are big moneymakers now. Pishevar left Investment company, the company he founded, at the end of 2017. Shervin Pishevar disappeared for a few months, but he’s back, and he has a lot to say on Twitter. One of his tweets throws Amazon, Microsoft, and Apple under the economic bus. Pishevar thinks those companies are too big and too powerful.
The stock market is riding high in 2018, but Shervin Pishevar thinks the market is going to drop by 5,000 points or more sooner than later. Plus, he thinks the bond market won’t be the safe-haven it usually is when stock prices drop. Some economists believe Shervin Pishevar is right when he tweeted the demise of some of the big hedge funds. Most of the top investors like George Soros and Warren Buffett know a recession is a real possibility. Trump’s economic policy will fuel that recession, according to another Shervin Pishevar tweet.
Pishevar is trying to let people know the United States is facing a dim economic future. Shervin knows 4.1 percent economic growth in the second quarter of 2018 is not a measuring stick for the health of America’s economy. That rate of growth is well behind India’s and China’s GDP growth. Pishevar isn’t crying wolf on Twitter because he wants attention. He is letting people know the world’s economy is heading for an adjustment.
Cryogenic food processing, the use of liquid nitrogen emerged in the 1960s, and it revolutionized the supply of fresh food. With storage problems solved, companies could now process food in bulk and transport them whenever and wherever. Based in Aurora, Illinois OSI Group is undoubtedly one of the largest suppliers of meat and meat products not just in the United States but across the globe. Recent developments at the Group have helped raise it to the top of the food chain. The reduction of production by Tyson Food Group was good news for OSI Group as the former was looking to dispose of its installation in Chicago. The chicken processing plant increased OSI Group’s production capacity in Chicago and increased its presence in the state.
The plant is not only conveniently close to the Group’s existing factory, but it had an incredible amount of floor space that increased the manufacturing capabilities of the Group’s subsidiary in the area.Other than the acquisition of the plant, OSI Group embarked on an acquisition spree that began in the Netherlands. Dutch meat processor, Baho Foods is the most significant acquisition the Group has ever made. Operating through five subsidiaries Q Smart Life, Gelderland Frischwaren, Bakx Foods, Henri van de Bilt, and Vital Convenience that runs plants not just in the Netherlands, but also in Germany OSI was able to increase supply across 18 countries.
This acquisition led to the expansion of OSI Group foothold in Europe, but the Group was not done yet. Still, in Europe, OSI Group purchased Flagship Europe, a food and condiment maker based in the UK, before the acquisition, Flagship was able to buy out another food supplier, Calder Food. This not only increased the asset base, but it also enhanced OSI Group’s portfolio. Before the company could celebrate its achievements, the Group invested heavily on restructuring its operations at Toledo Spain. Capital injection of €17 million enabled the company to increase the floor space by a massive 20,000 square feet, and annual production capacity doubled to sit at 45,000 tons of processed meat products.
