Sondage Ipsos pour @axios: 56% de républicains se définissent comme républicains traditionnels. 36% comme inconditionnels de #Trump.
Pour le groupe de inconditionnels de #Trump, 1% souhaitent sa destitution.
Pour les républicains "traditionnels", 24%.

2) Autrement dit, les sénateurs républicains devraient voter 1 destitution de #Trump voire son inéligibilité contre l'écrasante majorité de leurs électeurs qui le soutient sans réserves, sinon des nuances subtiles. Pourquoi feraient-ils cela en tant qu'élus politiques?
3) Et le vote des représentants hier reflète exactement cet état supposé de l'électorat républicain, attaché à #Trump. 1 infime minorité d'élus ont basculé. Peut-il en aller autrement chez les républicains du Sénat, certes moins favorables au président?

Wanted to analyze #Pakistan's #export performance, benchmarking with structural and aspirational countries, along 4 dimensions - #growth, #diversification, #quality, #survival. Thread below: 👇👇👇
1/n Since the turn of the century, #Pakistan has become a more inward oriented economy, with exports/GDP falling from 16 to 10%.
2/n As a result, #Pakistan's share of world markets fell from 16USD to 12USD out of every 1000USD traded between 1990 and 2019. #Bangladesh moved from 5 to 18USD in the same period. #Vietnam from 14 to 113USD!!!

Last night market closed at 57.85 cts/lbs on the nearby July contract, 57.76 on the December contract and 58.08 on the December 2021 contract, a week on week increase of 6% for and a four week change of 10% in the July contract.
The drivers were new Chinese sales, partial liquidation of the speculative short position and higher than usual correlation between the ICE cotton market and the stock market in the US, which has increased materially in the last four weeks.
Without new Chinese sales -in the very short term- the market could trend lower by 2 to 3 cts/lbs with the July contract doing most of the work between now and the contract First Notice Day in June 24.

Thread👉The MSP Fallacy

If an M.P asks a question in Parliament regarding #Farmer Income, it is a cast iron rule that @nstomar(#Agri minister) starts his reply with "Govt announces Minimum Support Prices for 22 mandated crops"; what he doesn't say is that only 6% farmers get MSP
@nstomar @Devinder_Sharma @waglenikhil @MonaAmbegaonkar @jayantrld @_YogendraYadav @GauravPandhi @jyotiyadaav @sakshijoshii @vijaita @svaradarajan Mantri Ji mentions "Union Budget 2018 announced to fix the MSP at 1.5 times of the cost of production". What mantri ji forgets to mention is that MSP is still fixed acc to A2+FL cost(input cost+family labour)rather than C2 costs(which include interest on value of land & machines)
