Yesterday, the Taskforce on Innovation, Growth and Regulatory Reform published a report outlining their vision to “refresh the #UK’s approach to regulation now that we have left the EU”. A thread on the life of #privacy post-#Brexit. (Trigger warning: it doesn't look good). 👇 1/
The report emphasises "#consumer #data" as "highly profitable." Something to note: the report mentions "#consumers" 52 times while mentioning "#citizens" 11 times. 2/

Opposition is screaming about Inflation,but India under @narendramodi has curbed #Inflation,versus global peers

#VegetableInflation in India is minus 1.92% in May&Food inflation 5.01%

Globally,#FoodInflation up 39.7%, Cereal up 36.6%,Wheat price up 28% &Maize 89.3%

My thread👇
Globally #Inflation is rising because of co-ordinated fiscal stimulus,that has led to asset prices,zooming;For instance,annualized inflation in USA is 9.7%;2yrs back,US was in throes of #Disinflation

$6 trillion stimulus by #Biden has led to too much money chasing too few goods
For those wanting to know why the difference in #WPI&CPI,figures well,weights of items in CPI are based on average household expenditure,taken from consumer expenditure surveys

Weightage of Primary articles in #CPI is 55%+,with Food group alone having weight of 39.06%

Big congrats to @nonfungibles on releasing their 2020 Annual Non-Fungible Tokens Report! @NathalieBcht, @latelier & I thoroughly enjoyed partnering with them on it: bit.ly/2ZkRiS8.
Some key takeaways from the report & my personal observations a/t #NFTs. A long-ish 🧵👇:
MARKET SIZE: The NFT market had a historic 2020 - tripled in value, reaching $250m (in terms of value of all #Ethereum transactions on chain, so actual market size is even bigger). This is rapid growth for a space that’s just a few years old.
Market is still volatile & prone to speculation but more sophisticated use cases are emerging based on utility, community, competitive elements. All are prerequisites for a more mature market. For all the hype around crypto, it is #NFTs that offer some of the more promising uses.

📢 thread: 12 reasons to be cheerful about the UK #economy in 2021🎄

I know 2021 will be another tough year for many people and businesses, but I’m aiming here to provide some counterbalance to the more negative commentary you can easily find elsewhere...
1. The household sector (in aggregate) has built up substantial #savings during the pandemic that could be used to fuel a strong recovery in #consumer spending. Obviously, the distribution is uneven and much still depends on confidence. But…
2. Consumer ##confidence jumped by the most in eight years in December on the good news on the #vaccine. Even in November, households were the least pessimistic about #job security since March, despite the grim headlines...

🇺🇸 #GDP thread

The strongest GDP advance on record rings hollow.

The economy grew 7.4% (or, 33.1% annualized) in Q3 – recouping two thirds of the #Covid output loss – but it remains 3.5% smaller than at the end of 2019.
The strong #GDP performance gives a false impression of the economy’s true health.

Much of the Q3 gain came from carry-over effects from fast progress in May-July while real GDP remained down 2.9% y/y in Q3.
Comparing the Global Coronavirus Recession with the Global Financial Crisis is quite telling:

Despite the strong Q3 rebound, real 🇺🇸GDP is now where it was at the trough of the Great Recession.

(*I know Q4 2007 is the start of GFC, but doesn't change the levels much)

ICYMI, the @FTC proposed a settlement addressing allegations that @zoom_us undermined the #security and #privacy of its users. I dissented because the settlement failed to recognize and solve for the privacy implications of the security failures at issue. ftc.gov/public-stateme…
Too often we treat data security and privacy as distinct concerns that can be separately
preserved. In reality, protecting a consumer’s privacy and providing strong data security are
closely intertwined, and when we solve only for one we fail to secure either.
This case provides a perfect example of how things that might seem superficially to be security failures (here, encryption levels and overriding 3rd-party security features) are really about privacy as well.

#China stocks roar on, with #CSI300 up ~20% in little more than a week as (official) #margin debt climbs Y150bln to touch Y1.3 trillion - levels only seen in the peak months of 2015's madness.
Worth noting a rejection here could mean the Jan'19 formation is complete.

As the money floods into #China #equities, #bonds bear the brunt. Wealth Managers are the MOMO traders de jour "Our company's mixed products can have 60% allocations to #stock, but now we're at 70-80%. This is a normal phenomenon [sic]," said one.

This latest burst has also spared #CNY the ignominy of setting a new 12-year high above 7.18, instead pushing it briefly back through the talismanic 7.00 parity. Ergo, either locals are repatriating to get in on the action or Johnny Foreigner is being sucked into the move.

1/ If a founder is building #consumer business like #gaming #mobile #media or others and wants to raise from investors, it's crucial to find and talk to the right investor who understands the market and has good connections, especially now when many funds are leaning towards B2B
2/ yes, consumer biz is risky, hit driven, and all the tech giants like Facebook or Google would acquire you before it really gets big, but there are some investors who really like BtoC and consistently invest in the space.
3/ funds like @Maveron @davewu @betaworksVC @PereraThisara are good examples. Big funds like @a16z @BessemerVP @sparkcapital @benchmark do invest in consumer but need to know the right partner there and these partners at a big fund is always fighting for an internal allocation

Personal #tradeXpresso thread: Today is a special day, as it’s been more than 10 years since I’m doing my current job. Before turning a professional page, it’s time to look back at the difference the #ChiefEconomist team and I made in @Trade_EU. At least 10 things came to mind:
1. #SMEs were not seen as important. Now they are key for @Trade_EU! econpapers.repec.org/paper/risdgtce…

This was indeed a fantastic and very insightful panel! Perhaps a summary of the main points can be useful. Thus, a long thread. 1/n
All panelists agree: Market power in #digital markets is worrisome. Fiona and Tommaso think that #mergers can worsen this situation and directly harm consumers by killing actual or potential competition, reducing #innovation (either killing the innovation of the target or .. 2/n
…the innovation of the acquiring incumbents) and quality (including #privacy). Mergers can also cause indirect harm (Tommaso) by increasing prices in the other side(s) of the market (e.g. #advertising). 3/n

In the main we will talk a bit about simple matters of #supply & #demand while touching on the #future as far as #consumer outlooks & #perception / #confidence are concerned. I would like us to start in 2016, a quick recap...what happened to #Oil?
