Going back to the middle of the 19th century, the role of monopolies in American business has been hotly contested. On the one hand, organizations like Standard Oil, the New York Central Railroad or U.S. Steel had cornered markets and ruthlessly run their competitors out of business. They had captured the very regulatory agencies that were designed to keep them in check, effectively making them departments within their corporate structure. And all of these companies shifted costs onto the American public, through a variety of externalities.
But the flipside of that argument is that those same monopolies also enabled the country to progress into the future, eventually becoming the most dominant industrial power on Earth. Through their economies of scale and ability to spend vast resources on developing new processes, these companies were able to manufacture goods on a scale that would have otherwise likely been impossible. Ultimately, even though they cost society a great deal, they ended up saving consumers money through their ability to produce high-quality products at ever-cheaper prices.
But the final verdict on monopolies in U.S. business has been, whatever their merits, that they eventually end up costing more than they contribute. Shervin Pishevar is one of America’s leading financial experts in the world of tech. In Shervin Pishevar’s view, whatever the initial contributions of the Big Five tech monopolies, which include Apple, Google, Amazon, Facebook and Microsoft, their externalizing of costs is currently far outweighing their current benefits to society at large.
1/ Some thoughts on financial storms I seeing brewing ahead. I expect 6000 point drop in aggregate in months ahead. Here’s why.
Shervin Pishevar has first-hand knowledge of how this works in practice. In his time as one of the leading figures within Uber, Shervin Pishevar has personally witnessed the way that Google has engaged in asymmetrical lawfare, forcing the much more precariously capitalized Uber into jaw-droppingly expensive legal skirmishes on specious claims of intellectual property violations.
While Google has the cash reserves to easily absorb these expenses, Uber does not. Shervin Pishevar says that Uber came close to having to give up its self-driving vehicle research as a direct result of being dragged through the legal mud by Google.

Entrepreneurs are not born, they are made. This is a statement that rings true for Guilherme Paulus, the billionaire founder of CVC Brasil Operadora e Agencia de Viagens S.A and GJP. He was a man born in relative poverty and was unable to attend medical school for the same reason, but later pulled himself together and went on to become one of the wealthiest individuals in Brazil.
He has been able to build his businesses over the years with CVC Brasil Operadora e Agencia de Viagens S.A taking him more than four decades to grow while GJP took a relatively short time to flourish in part due to his access to financial resources. The two companies are among the biggest in their respective fields with the GJP network playing host to 19 hotels while CVC Brasil Operadora e Agencia de Viagens S.A is the largest operator in the country handling more than 3.5 million clients annually according to exame.abril.com.br.

This sale would enable Guilherme Paulus to focus more on GJP at a time when he was looking to expand its hotel presence near airports at a time when major sports events were coming to Brazil.
Individuals unfamiliar with the work of Jason Hope are missing out of a valuable financial, technological, and investment resource. He has made a living predicting some of the biggest technological advances and has set himself in an advisory role for millions of people all around the world through his published works. He has gained a large portion of his notoriety due to his extensive knowledge surrounding the internet-of-things, or IOT. There are a lot of people that do not understand exactly what the IOT is, but they encounter the devices associated with it every single day. The IOT is simply a network of mobile or other devices that have been internet enabled. They engage in communication and transmit data between themselves on a near-constant basis.
The human body interacts in much the same way. Technology draws many of its base processes from the communication that takes place within the body. This is why regenerative medicine can be considered the tech-support of the human body. Jason Hope talks about the evolution of these IoT devices in his books, but if these devices can upgrade why can’t the human body have old parts replaced. The SENS Research Foundation is looking to do that on a cellular level, even repaired aged cells throughout the body. Hope has donated a significant amount of money to help foster this type of research. It is the hope that some of the effects of aging can be stopped before they are even able to begin damaging the body. The SENS Research Foundation has explained that they will use Hope’s $500,000 dollars to successfully branch into this age-breaking technology and expand their research projects.
Jason Hope applauds the work being done by SENS Research Foundation in a recent article listed on releasefast.com. He has shown particular excitement for research focused on diabetes and Alzheimer’s, as they affect such a large portion of the population. The foundation is excited about Hope’s donation because they have not been empowered to push this research and help the public faster. These diseases and the effects of aging are hurting people every single day and every minute wasted costs another person their life. It seems that the tech-crew for the human body are gearing up their equipment to make one big push for the anti-aging agenda. More donors like Hope should come forward and be willing to help these biological engineers make a difference for the future.
In the early nineteen hundreds, America was undergoing an economic renaissance of near-epic proportion. The economic prosperity was and still is, fueled by the arrival of immigrants from all over the globe to the US. One such immigrant family that came to the USA with a tunnel vision were the Kolschowskys. The patriarch of this German descended family was called Otto Kolschowsky and together with the wife and the kids they successfully opened a small meat trading store in one of the emerging suburbs in the state of Chicago. Barely three decades into the meat business, had that once small outlet transformed into a regionally recognized entity bearing the name, Otto & Sons.
In the early-to-mid-1950s, America welcomed a hotel franchise business called McDonald’s. Very few people, save for maybe luminary business minds like Otto Kolschowsky recognized the remarkable opportunity and joined forces with McDonald’s. The CEO of McDonald’s met up with the leader of Otto & Sons in the most formal meeting ever. By then, McDonald’s had just broken ground on its premier store in Des Plaines, Illinois.
New Preservation Method
The first meet up with the leaders of these globally acclaimed companies culminated in a simple handshake, but the strong professional relationship forged that day would endure the coming decades to this very day. OSI’s meteoric rise to the top of the fast food franchise business was catalyzed by the company’s invention of a new and more effective method of preserving processed meat and meat products. Fast track to the 1970’s and the quality meat retailing establishment rebranded and it was now called, OSI Group of Industries.
OSI Group of Industries built up a behemoth supply network consisting of close to 200 independent and verified suppliers. With time, the quality meat company diversified their clientele portfolio to include other emerging restaurants and hotels in the state and elsewhere as well. Towards the turn of the millennium, OSI Industries acquired full rights for the Glenmark trade name. Such moves would ultimately propel OSI Industries to become the 136th most profitable and valuable private American company.
Sword of Honour Award
Today, OSI Industries has a strong valuation of $6.1+ billion and it’s expanded operations to far places like mainland China, Eastern, and Western Europe and in the lucrative Asian Pacific region. OSI’s outstanding track record and service performance have won the OSI Group fans and customers all over the planet. For instance, OSI walked away with two top awards at the 2015 British Safety Council (BSC) awards. OSI Industries scooped the coveted Sword of Honour award for their innovative measures to enhance the overall safety and wellness of their ever-growing clientele.
