THREAD on Friday's parliamentary crisis in #Mogadishu and broadly #Somalia's existing #electoral turmoil. I discuss what happened, and towards the end, I offer a possible electoral solution for a way forward. 1/17
At stake are two issues: did #Speaker #Mursal and opposition MPs follow the parliamentarian procedures, and does the speaker have the authority, under the parliament's rules & regulations, to suspend the 15 opposition MPs for 5 seating? Second, where do we go from here? 2/17
The speaker cited Art. 16 (1,2); Art. 18 (a, b); Art. 19 - 1 (b, c, d, e, f, g) & Art. 28-5 (n). Most of the above articles deal with the speaker's powers, the deputies, and governs' behaviors/conduct of legislators when parliament is in session. 3/17

While our February 18th monthly client call argument for rising #RealRates appeared prescient, we were surprised by the magnitude of last week’s #move and would expect a more benign evolution toward #equilibrium going forward.
Taking a stab at periodizing the past year: 1) in Feb/Mar 2020 the Covid crisis was priced into #markets, real #rates spiked higher, #inflation breakevens collapsed and #investors scrambled to raise #cash as the #SPX experienced its fastest 30% drawdown in history.
Then, 2) from Apr through Oct 2020 we witnessed the #market impact of monumental #monetary and #fiscal policy responses to the #crisis, as policymakers successfully sought to force #real rates down and restore #inflation expectations.

All you need to know ahead of next week's #Budget in one... THREAD 👇

The #Budget2021 comes at a critical time when the UK is in the middle of battling the #pandemic and the economy is substantially weakened with uneven effects at industry, household & region level.

Read the economic context to #Budget2021 here 👇

We project the UK economy to contract again in 2021Q1 due to the second wave and the winter #lockdown as well as the effects of post-#Brexit adjustment, bringing #GDP to some 11% below pre-#pandemic levels

Why do young people leave quantitative trading 5 to 7 years in their career, and what's your advice for aspiring quantitative traders?
@CQFInstitute @RiskDotNet @icmacentre @RiskMinds
The burnout (losing interest in the job) and dropout(leaving the job) rates are stupendous.
#Quantitative Specialist Roles as they exist in the Dealing Room in the form of #Treasury, Brokerage, Fund Management, #Investment Management, #Portfolio #Asset Management, #Derivative Market Making, and various other Front -Office #Risk Roles are highly demanding jobs indeed!
Most of the traders are asked to take a mandatory leave of up to two weeks or more at financial institutions, so they can relax a bit by staying away from the financial markets.

El caso de @Don_OsoGT y #OSSO, es una muestra más de cómo una acción que puede estar amparada legalmente se enfrenta al juicio de la opinión pública y de los fans de una marca, desatando un problema de #reputación que no será una crisis pero que sí lleva evaluación. (Abro #HILO)
- Lo primero es tomar en cuenta, seas una empresa grande o pequeña, que tu marca es el activo más importante que tienes, y que la debes registrar legalmente en @IndecopiOficial. ¿Qué pasaría si tu empresa da el salto en el mercado y no has protegido tu marca? Podrías perderla.
- Lo segundo es que en la defensa de la marca, si alguien busca aprovecharse de ella y generar confusión, efectivamente, vale tomar acciones siempre que tengas un registro. La mala fe se detecta rápidamente, aquí un caso personal contra la #AgenciaTaipá…

The amount of companies in #London that suffer #CyberAttack|s is unprecedented.
#hackers were preparing for months. #scoping, network exploration, #SocialEngineering was employed months. #zoommeetings and #email led to bad communication.
#IT/#redteam/#BlueTeam|s etc are not in proper collaboration. People do not know what to do and what are their roles or which tools they need to use.
So far the #Ransomware demands are crazy and the worse is the #databreach leading to #intellectualproperty theft.
Due to #COVID19 #MutantStrain and #londonexodus, working from home has been intensified but lessons from the previous #lockdown on #secure access failures were not learned. #infosec community is still trying to survive.

Se me ha ocurrido hacer un hilo de #vinos #tintos buenos para una #crisis. Vinos que no superan los 10€, porque, el vino bueno, es el que te gusta, no el más caro. Ojo: no soy experta, solo catadora habitual y firme creyente de que el vino es cultura. #ElVinoDelLunes 👇🏻
1.- D.O.TORO: GRAN CONQUERO 2016 Viñas Viejas. Se vende en Mercadona. Tinta de Toro 100%. Un vinazo a precio popular. Apto para amantes de la intensidad y las carnes rojas. Una comida de Navidad rebajando grasa y con un sabor extraordinario (es marca blanca de Bajoz)
2.- D.O. RIBERA DEL GUADIANA (Extremadura): PALACIO QUEMADO Crianza 2017. Tempranillo con un toque de Cabernet Sauvignon. Un vino fácil, sedoso, de capa baja. De esos que dices “está bueno”, no importa cuando leas esto.

Now, even as the #CoronavirusVaccine dominates the headlines, we should take heed on the three detrimental 'undercurrents' that are converging to a 'Perfect Storm':

1) Financial instability.
2) Economic fragility.
3) Political uncertainty.

Thread. 1/24
In June 2013, we warned on the detrimental effects of the prolonged low int. rate envir.

"The long-term effects of the zero-bound on the financial markets are not known. What is known, is that extended periods of monetary easing may lead to bubbles." 2/…
We were not particularly worried about the situation in 2013, but in June 2016 we were:

"...fraudulent behavior, indebtedness, persistent macroeconomic imbalances, and major mispricing of risks are usually present before major financial disruptions." 3/…

I see that, in reaction to Macron, many Muslims deny, "Islam is in crisis."

But let's be honest: Of course, #Islam is in #crisis.

Just like Christianity was in the 16th century; when Catholics & Protestants were slaughtering each other, and "heretics" were burnt at the stake.
Our religion #Islam is in a big crisis, because:

We are the only religion today in the world whose mainstream authorities may justify killing "apostates" or "blasphemers."

Or flog or imprison sinners.

Or whose adherents may bomb the place of worship of the "heretical" sect.
The common apology, "it is just Muslims, not Islam" doesn't help much.

Because those coercive or violent Muslims are acting in the name of Islam as they sincerely understand it.

So, we will not get out of this crisis unless we question their understanding and all its bases.

#Turkey #Ankara #ECONOMY #Crisis

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan surprisingly dismissed central bank chief Murat Uysal in view of the ongoing currency crisis.
As his successor, he appointed ex-finance minister Naci Agbal by decree, as announced in the official journal on Saturday. The Turkish lira fell again to a record low against the dollar on Friday. It has fallen by 30 percent against the American currency this year.
Erdogan had only promoted Uysal from vice-chief to the top of the central bank in July 2019 after he fired his predecessor Murat Cetinkaya in a dispute over what he saw as too high interest rates. Uysal then started to cut interest rates.

Where were you when even @JustinTrudeau said “We are expecting the RCMP & police services to do their jobs & keep people safe”
@RussDiabo @Ruth_HHopkins
Yesterday I called @RCMPNS HQ to urge them to prepare to protect Mi’kmaw people in area, as non-native fishers threatening again

Was told they had “resources” there already & would have detachment call me with more details.

No one called, at all

Called again today
Radio silence still as situation drastically escalating
Concern this will explode exponentially

Nothing on either @RCMPNS or @DFO_MAR feeds

Sept 18, 2020, WWF Too Big To Fail:

"#Ecosystems are assets. We are talking about an asset mgt. problem."

No. Ecosystems are biological COMMUNITIES that exist for their own purposes. Not ours.

Depraved #WEF, #WWF et al. after decades of plunder, plan to seize what remains. Image
"As we navigate our way through the biggest #economic #crisis since the 2nd world war, we are still facing the existential threat of biodiversity loss & climate change."

They do not give a fuck about biodiversity. They trashed it for profits. They do not care about the climate. Image
What they do care about. Protecting & expanding current power structures. Protecting the ruling class to which they belong. Profit$.

Markets are not the solution to the accelerating biodiversity crisis & ecological breakdown. They are the cause.

.#ConsumerPriceIndex data for the month of August revealed further recovery - like a lot of #macro data in recent months: core #CPI (excluding volatile food and #energy components) came in at 0.4% month-over-month and 1.7% year-over-year.
Overall, we think 2020’s broadly #deflationary influences may well lead to somewhat higher rates of #inflation by mid-2021, yet importantly, we do not expect this to reach excessive levels.
Those fearing increasingly greater risks of high #inflation stemming from #crisis rescue measures are misguided, in our view, and underestimate the continued secular headwinds to excessive #price increases…

Let us take a closer look at a level playing field in #Banking, and why regulatory clarity is so important.

The information used here comes directly from the @BIS_org

#Ripple #XRP #Crypto #Cryptocurrency
While crises often span borders, the pain is always domestic. At the political level, therefore, the temptation is for a narrow, national policy response that tends to make the playing field uneven - the very opposite of what we should be aspiring to.
When the Great Financial Crisis hit in 2007-09, for example, national approaches prevailed - notably in the form of ad hoc ring-fencing and recapitalisation of domestic banks by governments. Cross-border #Banking receded significantly.

¿Qué fue lo más destacado del #SegundoInforme de Gobierno del presidente López Obrador?

Abro hilo con toda la información:
Al iniciar su mensaje, López Obrador aseguró que la "peste de la corrupción" originó la crisis en México. "Este gobierno no será recordado por corrupto"
El mandatario sostuvo que "ya pasó lo peor" de la crisis económica provocada por el COVID-19 y "ahorita vamos para arriba" con la recuperación de empleos
