As per @IndiaRatings #banks are likely to restructure up to ₹8.4 lakh crs of loans. Over 60% of ₹8.4 lakh crs could slip into the NPAs category, it added. We must keep a close watch on #mutualfunds having high exposure to such stressed #assets. #SaarthiZarooriHai @cafemutual
In spite of the fact that the expected quantitative effect of pressure that #mutualfunds may confront isn't known, #investors portfolio can be shielded from any plausible misfortunes emerging out of the exposure to stressed #assets. Select #DebtFunds after thorough evaluation.
On the background of the macro-economic challenges, COVID-19 emergency, & geopolitical strains; have such #investment portfolio that works under all #economic situations will be a reasonable strategy. But for the same #PlanZarooriHai & #SaarthiZarooriHai. @bsindia @NDTVProfit

1/ The lives of people with #disabilities aren't worth less, even now. #COVID19 has turned us into fearful things. #Quarantined in our homes, with the #pandemic touching every part of our lives, and any sense of ‘normalcy’ obliterated, this fear has us lashing out at one another.
2/ Me? I’m just terrified for my mother, in critical condition following complications from #coronavirus. Twice she has come so close to death that my own heart stopped in anticipation, the breath seizing in my lungs as my world prepared to end with her.

#COVID19 #ruralhealth
3/ My entire family contracted #COVID. My father spent 5 days in the hospital before being discharged; my sister and I struggled through from home. 3 weeks in, we’re making it, but none of us is fully well.

These are the #stories of #math that we celebrate, amplify and make central to the idea of #maths as a #objective #neutral #culture-free subject. #Math can do no #harm, and the #logical “pure math” thinking of #Mathematicians is worthy of emulation. But... 1/x
2/x ... "What about pure mathematics and mathematicians who merely prove theorems? Is there any #ethical component comparable to what you find in other fields of #science?" - R. Hersh in Experiencing #Mathematics
3/x One point of view: "there's no need for #mathematicians to have a code of #ethics, because what we do matters so little that we can do whatever we like."

Not sure how on the radar this is for you but the #Chinaflooding season starts in 13 days and it’s already a catastrophe.

Most of you know that wages in the United States have remained stagnant since 1980, when adjusted for inflation. Do you realize, however, that the US is a global #empire and that we are likely witnessing the fall of that empire?

That's right, the US has political or... 1/16

economically, we also have a huge amount of control (although not total) over most of #Europe and some of the countries in Asia where we don't have political/military control.

It means that a #substance in a massive dose generates #pathological #symptomatology; has the possibility to #cure it, if applied in the #minimum doses obtained by #dilution and intense #agitation, in other words, #homoeopathic #succussion. .. II
#Homoeopathy is derived from a #Hippocratic #concept developed by the #German #physician, Samuel Hahnemann (1755–1843), with serially #diluted #medicines (1:9, 1:99, 1:999 and others) in water-ethanol vehicle alternating #dilution with #succussion. .. III

.#Markets keep pivoting off of a great deal of noise running through the #media, but as we’ve indicated for some time, it’s worth taking a step back to consider the power behind #monetary rescue programs and their influences.
Critics of the efficacy of quantitative easing (#QE) often contend that asset purchase proceeds remain stranded in the #financial #economy
but the transfer of #capital to #MainStreet actors; amounts to the first direct payment of money creation from the #Fed into the real #economy since WW2, catalyzing broad #money and incremental #NGDP growth, and Chair Powell also indicated those purchases won’t run off.

THREAD about some of the #economic/#technology chatter we’re hearing from the media/public/govt while the #China-#India boundary situation has been playing out 1/
For one, there are once again calls in India to boycott Chinese products (seen these before, including during Doklam) with hashtags like #boycottmadeinchina, #boycottchina and #boycottchinesegoods. Also saw these recently when COVID-related anti-China sentiment was peaking 2/
The boycott calls have been spurred to some extent by Sonam Wangchuk (inspiration for Aamir Khan’s character in 3 Idiots), who has called for a #GrabYourWallet response by Indians. Some “influencers” have since claimed they have deleted Chinese apps 3/

Our paper with @cemoyvat is now published with @ElectoralStdies: We studied how #Turkey voters form their assessments of how the economy is going, based on survey data. Access: authors.elsevier.com/a/1b5hPxRaZVwEs
1/n
Our findings testify both to the capacity of the individuals to anchor their economic performance assessments to personal experience, and to the #media's ability to weaken this anchor. 2/n
With an new method we get personal income growth over the previous year and show that this growth predicts more positive assessments. But those watch pro-govt TV have upwardly biased assessments. These results obtain w partisanship is constant, and for opposition voters too. 3/n

1/11: Before #Covid19 the #geopolitical system was shifting from globalism & multilateralism towards a big power stand-off between #US & #China. The pandemic is accelerating this trend, as all major players struggle to cope. A thread on this, with input from @AlexWhite1812..
2/11: #China, source of the outbreak, has taken a big hit. It suppressed information & numbers. The lockdown apparently worked but was harsh. China is now struggling to reverse a backlash in world opinion through propaganda, exploiting “first recoverer” status & US disarray..
3/11: The early #US federal response was incoherent & failed any test of international leadership. Trump has been awful. But the Fed moved far and fast & some states & cities have done well. Disproportionately high fatalities would damage American prestige...

Lets talk about #Oil and why the price of the #US benchmark #WTI West Texas Intermediate has turned negative FOR THE FIRST TIME EVER...
Some of you are waking up to what might read or sound like another disaster. Just when you were learning how to deal with #COVID19, you hear about a so called plunge in the #Price of #Oil. But what does it mean to have oil in negative territory & why is that the case? Lets see...
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?

It is a desperate pitched #battle that #humanity is waging to stop the deadly advance of the #coronavirus.

Since its appearance in #Wuhan #China three months ago, the pandemic has infected one million people and killed 50,000, on a planet inhabited by 6 billion human beings.
Much of the world's population today is #besieged in cities, entrenched in their homes, as an extreme measure to escape the #plague & save lives.

We’re living, without a doubt, a time of tension & psychological crisis, while science, in a fight against the clock, is looking in
medicine for a solution to the challenges of the #pandemic.

The coronavirus is telling the world, in all shades, that #life is more important than #capital, because without life there is no factory.

Salvation is in human #solidarity and not in the perversity of Donald #Trump,

COVID-19... The Narratives

No. 1
#Economic

China created the COVID-19 virus to punish the United States for going into a trade war with it. Now the world is down and China is booming.
@ChifeDr @NCDCgov #COVIDー19
No. 2
#Ecumenical

The Illuminati, in conjunction with the Pope, created this virus to undermine Trump (economically), who they see as a potential threat, send him out of the White House, and establish a one-world religion by May 2020.
@ChifeDr @NCDCgov
#COVIDー19
No. 3
#Divine

God sent this virus to earth, to call the attention of everyone to His sovereignty and power. He is using it to punish us for our sins.

No. 4
#Cosmic

The Devil sent COVID-19 virus to earth to challenge God's sovereignty n hunt God's children.

As part of the #TweetStormTuesday was thinking about the less obvious opportunities from the #COVIDー19 #pandemic

👇A thread on why #Indian #B2B #SaaS companies can make the most of this tragic situation and help usher #SMB companies around the world into the #digital age.
1/ In this world of #lockdown and #WFH governments everywhere have been proposing large #economic #StimulusPlan packages. #COVIDー19 has caught many businesses off guard.
2/ While industries like travel, hospitality and real estate were unfortunately predictable casualties, many small/medium sized (SME) companies across sectors have been disproportionately impacted. These companies have put off digitizing operations and are completely gridlocked.

The #West Needs to Wake Up to #China's Duplicity

"Chinese leaders ... obsessed only with the sustainability of their #totalitarian regime, and as eager to silence any criticism as they have been in the past. 1/n

The #nature of the #Chinese regime:
- its #ban on the #free #press and all critical voices;
- the absolute #domination of the Communist Party over #social, #spiritual and #economic actors;
- #imprisoning minorities and crushing freedom of #conscience. 2/n

'The #West is so tolerant, passive, accommodating and naive towards #Beijing,' said @liaoyiwu1, a Chinese writer exiled in Berlin." 3/3

We are being feted by #ideological #purists who pretend that they would never want the American economy restarted until the risk that a single life will be lost is reduced to zero.

Maybe you're a purist as well?

Well, maybe you are, but maybe you aren't.
Have you ever benefitted from the transshipment of goods through the #PanamaCanal?

Did you ever benefit from power generated by the #HooverDam?

Then you are feasting on the remains of the human life cost of construction.
Yes, you have enjoyed the #cannibalization embodied in risks related to the #construction of dams, canals, buildings, ships, roads, etc.

So how many lives is your front porch light worth?

Take a look to get an idea:

#Storytelling.

Tonight I'm going to share highlights from the 2010 "Scenarios for the Future of Technology & Int'l Development" report produced by The Rockefeller Foundation & Global Business Network. Not just the "Lock Step" scenario, but all 4 scenarios. [54 page report]
Following Event 201 (Oct 18 2019), we must concede that the ruling class has been gifted with phenomenal and prophetic intuitions & insights. (They truly are the chosen ones.) Thus it is worthwhile, even mandatory, to study their scenario exercises & simulations.
"We believe that scenario planning has great potential for use in philanthropy to identify unique interventions... scenario planning allows us to achieve impact more effectively." [p 4]

Lets talk about #Global #CentralBanks and their #MonetaryPolicy stances given #COVID19. Specifically, lets ask ourselves: "Can Central Banks Help Fight COVID-19?"
The best place to start is to note that #Global #Growth was already facing considerable downside risks before the #COVID19 outbreak December 2019. The slow down in global growth came on the back of trade (china vs. us) and geopolitical (Brexit etc.) tensions...
To this end, institutions such as the #IMF & #WorldBank revised down their 2020 #Economic #Growth outlook & emphasised the need for a more coordinated #policy approach between #monetary & #fiscal policy around the globe to "rescue" growth from the doldrums...
