At the Canadian Consortium for Research meeting today w/ @MitacsCanada #CSPF and @NSERC_CRSNG colleagues, where @VB_Lisa opens by discussing #SupportTheReport efforts, asking how can we foster next steps for fundamental research and the #NextGenCanSci in Canada?

#scipol #thread
James Compton, prev prez @CAUT_ACPPU shows that there was a massive increase in student population, but this has slowed over the last 3 years. It would have slowed more, were it not for international students. Yet, #PSE funding from fed has been flat, has decreased at prov level
... Tuition has also increased over time. Faculty wages are not the culprit though, the % #PSE expenditures on wages has diminished over time. There is also more reliance on contract staff ➡️ and academic staff are not being renewed

Today’s @FinancialTimes #budget2018 special is a thing of beauty. Twenty pages of reporting, analysis and opinion - plus our regular paper. Available in all good newsagents!
@FinancialTimes Our #Budget2018 opinion offering:

- @martinwolf_ says this is the largest discretionary fiscal loosening since the OBR’s creation in 2010. Hammond is handing his fiscal gift right back to the electorate.

ft.com/content/aa313b…
- @robertshrimsley says Hammond is offering money with menaces - i.e. vote for our Brexit deal or the pumpkin gets it. A budget for his colleagues as much as the country.

1. Now #Budget2018 settling a bit a few quick thoughts - Hammond trying to have it all - cut taxes, spend a bit more, allow borrowing to keep rolling on a bit, and give impression of big political switch away from years where paying down deficit + debt seemed Tory be and end all
2. Certainly a change that Treasury has decided not to use extra notional cash for sorting out the books - this Budget will actually see the deficit rise, but, two VERY important caveats
3. Extra spending, technically the 'biggest giveaway in a generation' - will nearly all be sucked up by NHS and some depts might still be looking at cuts in next few years (H/T @TorstenBell says they might be 3% on average) - so get ready for brutal fights before Spending Review

Sometimes on days like this when everyone's scrapping around to get heard on the budget it's worth remembering some simple facts.

This is a bit of a thread. #Budget2018
We live in one of the richest nations on earth yet we fail to provide everyone with a roof over their head.

Parents need food banks to put dinner on the table. Most of those parents have a job. #Budget2018
We've gone from being a country of free higher education to one which passes on mountains of debt to the next generation.

A million more kids are set to be in poverty in the coming years. A million. #Budget2018

1. So, people are comparing Phillip Hammond’s suggestion of a new budget to George Osborne’s Brexit budget, and I think #Budget2018 may be a good day to demolish a persistent Brexit myth...

uk.businessinsider.com/chancellor-ham…
2. Commonly people say that George Osborne’s “punishment budget” was just a lie, and the proof that it was just scaremongering can be found in the fact it didn’t happen.

To understand why this is a myth, we need to actually read it.
3. These are the first two pages. The front page definitely looks official and ‘budgety’. The second page is blank aside from a nice fancy border.

(I will be going through every page. Don’t worry it’s really short, unlike…you know…an actual budget)

OPEN LETTER TO POLITICIANS (PDF AT END OF THREAD)
Brexit affects EVERYTHING. If you care about austerity, but not about Brexit, you don't really care about austerity. If you care about food security, but not about Brexit, you don't really care about food security 1/30
#Budget2018
If you care about children's services, but not about Brexit, you don't really care about children's services. If you care about Universal Credit, but not about Brexit, you don't really care about Universal Credit. 2/30
Brexit will spread like a virus into every aspect of life, making us poorer, less competitive, more isolated in the world. Your heart can be filled with compassion until it threatens to burst, but if you don't care about Brexit, you don't really care about your country. 3/30

1. Sixth (can’t get enough!) in my series of threads looking at recent UK economic performance, from a national accounts viewpoint. History, not forecasts. Today is #Budget2018, so let’s take a peek at government spending's contribution to GDP growth.
2. The government spending that I’m going to focus on here – spending on newly produced goods and services (government consumption) and government gross fixed capital formation (government investment). This is only part of total spend. It excludes stuff like pensions and benefits
3. The pre-crisis period saw a long run (starting in 1998) of fairly elevated growth (by historical standards) in government consumption, which contributed an average of 0.5%y/y to GDP growth between 1998 and 2009.

I used @ProjectJupyter to investigate @NSERC_CRSNG expenditure over recent years using #opendata from @OpenGovCan. My exploration is freely available via @mybinderteam here: mybinder.org/v2/gh/colliand… 1/
According to the @OpenGovCan data, Discovery programs @NSERC_CRSNG increased in budget by 16% between 2013 and 2016. 2/

The President’s #Budget2018 Speech:
Our Response; A Joint Press Briefing by Senator Aliyu Sabi Abdullahi and Hon. Abdulrazak Namdas on behalf of the National Assembly.
1. We appreciate the fact that the 2018 Appropriations Law which was passed by the National Assembly on May 16th, 2018 was signed by President Muhammadu Buhari on Wednesday, June 20th, 2018.
#Budget2018
2. In his speech at the signing ceremony, certain observations were raised about the work of the National Assembly and its Constitutional responsibility to modify and amend the budget estimates submitted to it by the Executive.

A few minutes past noon today, I signed the 2018 Appropriation Bill into Law. #Budget2018
I am however concerned about some of the changes @nassnigeria has made to the budget proposals I presented. The logic behind the Constitutional direction that budgets should be proposed by the Executive is that, it is the Executive that knows & defines its policies & projects.
Unfortunately, that has not been given much regard in what has been sent to me. The National Assembly made cuts amounting to N347 billion in the allocations to 4,700 projects submitted to them for consideration and introduced 6,403 projects of their own amounting to N578 billion.

Yesterday, a rare joint session of both houses of @nassnigeria met and issued resolutions that has set it on a collision course with @AsoRock, and holds important political and economic consequences for #Nigeria as it stares down the barrel of #election2019.
The tension between the 2 most important arms of the FG, both controlled by @OfficialAPCNg, has endured through the tenure of @MBuhari's administration and is consequential for the party, for the wider political state of the country and in driving economic policy.
Federal lawmakers, in passing a vote of confidence in the principal officers of @NGRSenate and @HouseNGR, condemned the “systematic harassment and humiliation by @AsoRock of perceived political opponents, people with contrary opinions including legislators and the judiciary,”

Dear any political party
Don't bother preaching tax cuts, debt-reduction through service cuts, as the fast-track to the future or a path to prosperity.
We've had a quarter century social experiment with that.
We're done with that fiscal fantasy.
#TimesUp
#GenderResponsiveBudgets
If you're keen on debt reduction, grow the economy.
If you want more growth, support for women > trade or biz investment.
Women's estimated potential impact on growth (with supports) $150B by 2026. Trade's ~$12B by 2040.
(Thread: )
#cdnecon #cdnpoli #onpoli
Federal #Budget2018 articulated most elements of a plan to increase women's contribution to the economy, but not the next crucial step: a national strategy to improve access to affordable, high quality early childhood education for our kids.
That's why Poloz talked about it y'day

1. As @blueravenart noted, it is unfortunate that @downiewenjack gets $5million in today's budget but the @NCTR_UM gets nothing. cbc.ca/news/canada/th… #TRC #Indigenous #Budget2018
2. It is not that the Downie-Wenjack fund, and spaces for reflection and reconciliation, are bad - but we are still fighting for the truth BEFORE reconciliation: downiewenjack.ca #TRC #Indigenous #Budget2018
3. At a time when anti-Indigenous racism is rampant, Sen. Beyak is beaking off accusing the TRC as fake news while opening and holding space for residential school deniers.... aptnnews.ca/2018/02/21/bey… #Budget2018

One way to analyse #Budget2018 is to not look at in isolation but as a stunningly well planned sequencing of moves, beginning from 2014 budget and culminating in this, the 5th and last full budget of Modi Government. #NewIndiaBudget 1/10
This sequencing, in respect of moves through budget, can be broadly classified into what has been done on the following fronts A) Aspirational Class ; B) Farmers; C) Women; D) Youth; E) Jobs and F) Overall macro economy. #NewIndiaBudget 2/10
A) Aspirational Class: Ensure every family has bank account---->Direct Transfer of Benefits & Subsidies--->Basic life & accidental insurance--->Enable Formal credit without collateral---->Raise standard of living---->Ensure Medical Insurance for whole family. #NewIndiaBudget 3/10
