#Scenarios: "we present a model that extrapolates observed growth in #millionaire numbers (1990–2020) and associated changes in #emissions to 2050. Our findings suggest that the share of US$2020-millionaires in the world population will grow ...…
... from 0.7% today to 3.3% in 2050, and cause accumulated emissions of 286 Gt CO2. This is equivalent to 72% of the remaining carbon budget, and significantly reduces the chance of stabilizing climate change at 1.5 °C."

"most recent assessment indicates changes in distribution, with the top 1% now being responsible for 17% of total #emissions, the top 10% for 48%, and the bottom half of the world population for only 12% (in 2019). These numbers illustrate the role of the #wealthy in ...

Guter @tomlangpaul Kommentar in der #zib zu #pressefreiheit & #musktwitter. Gut, dass Alternative Kanäle für Qualität Content geschaffen werden, aber kompletten Biedermeier Rückzug in den kuscheligel #Mastodon Sozial Salon der Gleichgesinnten wird es hier nicht geben.

#RIPTwitter mit Hintergrund Überlegungen, oder der Tread zum Ende der Twitter 2.0 Welt auf Deutsch🧵

#Musk irrt in Gewichtung Code vs Human Capital. Über Jahrzehnte gewachsene IT Infrastruktur Systeme können nicht rebootet werden, wie Smartphones. Mitarbeiter System Know How kann nur langsam ersetzt werden. Twitter ist IT Backbone Verfügbarkeit, nicht hippe Code Genialität. 2/6
Die Werbe-Einnahmen bei Twitter boten Kunden Image Effekten, nicht klassischer Multiplikation. Industrie wirbt auf Twitter, wie sie Kultur fördert. Nicht als Werbung, sondern als ergänzende Image Aktivität. Zentrales Anliegen sind Brand Safety & Reputation ▶️ Twitter Image. 3/6

#PallonjiMistry, the elusive but powerful phantom of Bombay House…

By @KatyaNaidu Image
Very little is known about #PallonjiMistry who was the chairman emeritus of the Shapoorji Pallonji group – but has been crowned one of the Moghuls of real estate. The unlisted company had built every iconic building of South Mumbai – be it the Taj Colaba or the Oberoi Hotel. Image
Abroad, the company built the places of #Oman’s king and the President of Ghana. In fact, their ability to build seems to be how they ended up as one of the biggest shareholders of the #TataGroup.

The interview that Ukrainian oligarch Rinat #Akhmetov gave to #Bloomberg in writing is striking in its cynicism worthy of Dante's lower circle of hell. Image
#Akhmetov suddenly recalled the civilians of #Mariupol: 'They are dying of thirst and cold - this is #genocide.'

But it's no secret what really bothers this #oligarch.
System Capital Management Group is the majority shareholder of the #Azovstal steel plant in #Mariupol.

🧵I love #football

Have done since the 1980's ⚽️

Nowadays though, the off-field stuff seems to get as much coverage & column inches as the game itself 🗞️📺📱

Competition isn't just about trophies - it's about eyeballs, soft power, geo-politics, PR and #money

Quick tale...
Did you see that news report from the #US this week about the #billionaire financier #TomBarrack being arrested? ($250m bail)

In the weird (but fun) world we live in, that incident ties to #NewcastleUnited & the #PremierLeague

Say what?! 🧐

#FollowTheMoney #Networks #Power 💸
We have;

- Billionaires acting as back-channel diplomats (💰)
- Political actors orchestrating things but pretending they're not
- Qatar buy rights to #EPL for region
- Saudi pirate them #AJ #BeIn #BeOut
- SA try to buy NUFC
- Qatar say "No Way"

#Rights ✍️/👨‍👩‍👧‍👦

What is the Experiment, again?

"And #Covid is a project, however one tweezes it apart, of an unelected #billionaire #class that continues to amass enormous almost unthinkable amounts of money and property, beginning a #project of reshaping the #planet."… Image

"The eradication of the unconscious, of archaic dreams & collective imagination, the disenchantment of the world, & of the self, has taken place rapidly over the last 30 yrs ... & this disenchanted human is one who finds it hard to grasp the ideas of #class & economic #coercion." Image

A very sound explanation given by @RicherToday

Why billionaires can't end world poverty?

8 out of 10 believe that billionaires worldwide should help end world poverty, inequality & a host of global problems.
Surely Jeff Bezos can donate most of his $200B to the millions of malnourished in Africa and still lead a luxurious lifestyle.

So why doesn't he?
Contrary to what most people think, most of his wealth isn't liquid.

This means it isn't lying around as cash in bank account but rather as assets.

For example, almost of all Bezos's net worth comes from the value of the Amazon shares he holds.

Infinite Spiders, playwright, @johnsteppling

"If you go to, say, Amazon and under books type in #Philosophy, or Philosophy/Truth…you will get a litany of books with the phrase “post #truth” in the title. It is, apparently, a #posttruth world now."…
"This is related to what I experience as absent in daily life. Post truth is post experience in some sense. As Cory Morningstar put it in our podcast (#25); 'we are being reprogrammed'."

[#SocialEngineerring - a prerequisite for transition to #4IR]
"Of course the more profound elements of the #reprogramming are to be found in the #digital revolution. There is no way to overemphasize the impact of the internet & its various platforms....

Want to know why the cost of living continues to go up, year after year?

Want to know how the government can "afford" to pay for endless wars, the war on drugs, the militarized #policestate, and so many other destructive policies? Image
Want to know why the US government is over $26 trillion in debt, and rapidly rising, or why our #economy bounces between boom and bust cycles, leaving the poor and middle class further and further behind?

The answer to these is very simple: it's because of the Federal Reserve.
The #FederalReserve, or Fed for short, is the central banking system of the US. It controls how much, or how little, money is being printed.

Its main purpose is to lend money to government-approved banks at low-interest rates, so they can lend it to you at higher rates.

SPECIAL REPORT: A number of the planet’s richest people, including #BILLIONAIRE co-founder of @PayPal @peterthiel, are escaping to New Zealand to shelter in luxury bunkers amid the #COVID 19 #pandemic.
By: @AlanRMacLeod
The new range of luxury private bunkers are dug deep underground in the countryside and are covered with earth, the point being that even neighbors will have no idea that they are there, let alone the general public. 
#COVID19 #Food #TrumpLiesAmericansDie Image
Prices tend to start around $2 million and can reach up to $11 million for units that include luxury bathrooms, gun ranges, and swimming pools. Thiel himself chose instead to buy a bizarre-looking, $4.7 million home replete with a secure panic room.

Deloitte, 2017: "Operations will cease to be delivered by humans."

Deloitte: The #Future of Operations, Deloitte Global Impact Report, Nov 13 2017


#Covid19 is the conduit to the #4IR now in full motion. As people come to terms w/ what is being forced upon humanity, we will soon regret that we did not unite to oppose to draconian lockdowns/expanding surveillance that will serve to protect/insulate ruling classes from revolt.
#UBI (universal basic income) is a tool designed by the rich to stave off #Molotov cocktails - while at the same time enriching themselves even further. The ruling class knows full well what they are unleashing - but the citizenry does not.

Mentre negli ospedali i posti di rianimazione sono quasi esauriti, una parlamentare neoeletta (evidentemente furba e ferratissima in virologia) ha la bella idea di organizzare un party con 60 persone in barba a decreti e ordinanze🍸🥂 Image
Gli italiani ai tempi del #COVID19 🇮🇹🌞🍕🎸

Il gentilissimo Gianni di Alessandria si chiede perché il nuovo #coronavirus abbia colpito «SOLO GLI ITALIANI» (in #realtà persino in Italia i primi 2 malati erano cinesi).

Hello, everyone and welcome back to our weekly #GEMChats! This week, we'll discuss the results of the poll on whether #celebrities make successful #entrepreneurs!

Let's begin, shall we?

#startup #womenentrepreneur #business #showbiz
So recently @KylieJenner sparked a heated debate on how celebrities are successful at entrepreneurship when she was announced to become the youngest self-made #billionaire ever.…

Some feel strongly that she only dethroned #MarkZuckerberg from that position because she is part of the #Kardashian and her #entrepreneurial venture has multi-level of safety net and it allows her to #scaleup at an exponential rate.
