Having been involved in the business world for close to four decades, Hussain Sajwani has witnessed first-hand the impact political tensions can have on the global economy. The Damac owner points this out in reference to the current and brewing political storms across the world, with key emphasis on the U.S – China trade wars and a looming Brexit explosion in Europe. These play into his operating zones for his businesses and can attribute, to a certain extent, the 33 percent profit dip Damac Properties reported in this year’s third quarter.

Need for free trade across the world

When the Damac owner’s friend and longtime business acquaintance, Donald Trump took office as the U.S President, he sparked off a series of trade wars against China. He is particularly opposed to the one-sided nature of Chinese operations where they take advantage of the free trade while consistently locking out foreigners from their local markets.

Hussain Sajwani argues that while the trade war that has since loped in numerous other countries, there is a need for free trade across the world. He shares his friend’s opinions about unfair Chinese business policies that discourage foreign business penetration.

Unnecessary tensions

The free trade economic jabs between the United States and China has attracted global attention and roped in such other countries as Canada and Latin America nations. Across the Atlantic, yet another politically instigated economic tension, the Brexit, threatens to tip and carry with it the world’s most stable economic block, the European Union.

The Damac owner believes while the issues at hand like discussions about free trade or seamless transition of the British economy are important, the resulting political tensions aren’t necessary. He adds that these have only served to destabilize the global economy that is still on its knees and on a recovery journey from the 2007/8 financial crisis.

Shervin Pishevar is one of the prominent venture capitalists in the United States. He is known for his former role at Sherpa Capital where he was the managing director. Early this year, the Uber investor went on Twitter and sent out 50 messages with information about the future of the American economy. He expressed his thoughts by outlining what he thought were indicators that the economy is headed south. The tweet storm did not only focus on the American economy but other matters related to the financial industry. For instance, he talked about the bond market, bitcoin, immigration, and even the Silicon Valley.

American economy

On the American economy, Shervin Pishevar painted a dark picture of the state of the economy. By his projection, the economy will deteriorate in the coming days. He pointed out some factors that he believed were indications of an economy on the decline. The stock market was going down at the time of messages. He projected that the stock market would drop by 6,000 points, which would erase all the gains made in the past one year. The performance of the U.S Stock Market gives a clear picture of the overall performance of the economy. When it is doing poorly, the economy is also in danger.

The Silicon Valley

After talking about the economy, he moved onto Silicon Valley. By his analysis, Silicon Valley is on its death. There is no way it can maintain the high-profile name it has held for years. The world’s best innovations no longer have to come from the valley. Many countries are creating their versions of Silicon Valley to tap the talents of their citizens. Unlike in the past when great talent would come to the United States, this has no longer have to be the case anymore. Shervin Pishevar adds that Silicon Valley is no longer about a physical location, but rather an idea that is being implemented across the globe.

The projections of Shervin Pishevar were not off the mark since most of the projections he made are coming out correct. Others will be proven as time progresses.

Leadership takes many forms. For those in the healthcare field at Innovacare Health, leadership means that those who are in charge are open to new ideas, capable of inspiring team leaders and providing a new and innovative vision. In an effort to continue to provide the kind of care that people really need company officials at Innovacare Health have chosen to hire three new people. One of the people they have hired is Penelope Kokkinides. Penelope Kokkinides has a long history of success in this field. She has been part of health care administration for more than two decades. She holds an undergraduate degree in biology from the State University of New York at Binghamton. She earned a master’s degree in social work from New York University. She also has a master’s degree in assisting those who are suffering from alcohol and drug abuse. In addition, she’s also chosen to further pursue additional education by earning a master’s degree in the field of public health from prestigious Columbia University. These academic qualifications provide her with the base she needs in order to help implement important leadership innovations at Innovacare Health for all employees and those working in health care management.

Necessary New Changes

Smart cities are becoming more and more common around the world and people are always looking for new ways to make them run more efficiently and have less of an impact on the environment. One of the big issues that companies like Jingdong are trying to address within these smart cities is the logistics of their company. While freight vehicles are one of the most popular options to transport goods, it’s not the best option for the environment or traffic patterns.


This is why is looking into different methods for their logistics such as looking into options underground using a track system or municipal pipes. By moving the logistics of Jingdong underground, the traffic that their above ground freight vehicles will be cut down dramatically while creating a more aesthetically pleasing system. After researching their freight logistics system, they realized that it was having a much bigger impact on the environment due to the high level of emissions that were being produced. This is one of the main reasons why the company is looking into other options. See Related Link for additional information.


In order to figure out the best way to design and build their logistics systems and much more for the smart cities of China, announced the opening a research center called the “Urban Smart Logistics Institute”. Their research and development will be looking into how to implement automation into these cities along with big data and platforms that are based in the cloud.


This big announcement was made by in October of this year at their Global Smart Supply Chain Summit. The institute is being founded by some big names in tech and education including Sinotrans & CSC, Shanghai Maritime University, and the Institute of Comprehensive Transportation.


The cities in China are becoming more and more sophisticated at a rapid pace and it’s important that companies like keep up in order to meet the needs of their customers. It’s important to make sure the business plans in these urban centers are sustainable and do not disrupt the everyday lives of the many people that live and work in these cities.
