"One thing I learned early on...is how many people with large audiences are just bullshitting in a confident tone of voice. It's very easy to make a name for yourself that way. The path of integrity takes more work, and not many take it." -- @caitoz greeneracresvaluenetwork.wordpress.com/2022/05/23/dai…

1. Maintain the long-term trend of growth since the reform and opening up. Despite the shift from high speed growth to high quality growth, it may be necessary to maintain a growth rate of no less than 4% or slow down the pace to make it manageable. 2/6
2. China’s central bank and most international organizations think that the reasonable potential growth rate of China’s economy is 5-6%, which might be considered as the growth benchmark for 2022 and the 14th five-year plan period.3/6

🧵1/7 The #CRISPresearch team developed recommendations for @IndyChamber to advance inclusive economic growth in Indy. They focused on economic development, housing, access to economic opportunity, & community equity. Read the thread below from the report: policyinstitute.iu.edu/news-media/sto…
🧵2/7 Any region hoping to achieve full #EconomicInclusion & prosperity must address institutional disparities. That includes recognizing the negative impact legacies of racist and/or exclusionary policies had on residents & taking steps to correct those errors. #CRISPresearch
🧵3/7 #CRISPresearch analysts recommend developing plans to create wealth-building opportunities for people in groups that have historically been kept on the margins of the economy. To do that, leaders first need to assess & eliminate policies that reinforce economic disparities.

At the Growth Lab, an interdisciplinary team of researchers explores the secret of #EconomicGrowth from both an academic and applied angle. These are our most important academic papers of the past decade on #EconomicComplexity. (1/22) growthlab.cid.harvard.edu/academic-resea…
The economic complexity approach starts from the assumption that technology takes the form of tools, codes and #Knowhow. Knowhow grows by putting different bits of knowhow in different brains. (2/22)
Countries know more because individuals in them know different. Complex places have more diverse #knowhow. Complex products require more knowhow. Knowhow diffuses with people and teams of people. Once distributed, it needs tying back together by firms, cities or countries. (3/22)

1. #COVID19 has overshadowed much of government's policy agenda including the response to #ClimateChange. Now, the green agenda will have to battle for prominence during the economic recovery phase. A short thread on the likelihood of a green recovery by @jbuckland13 and @Gilesyb
2. The impact of #COVID19 on global carbon emissions is one of the few silver linings to the current pandemic. As countries have gone into lockdown, emissions have fallen dramatically with early analysis putting us on course for the biggest fall on record. @IEA
3. However, the impact will be short lived. As measures are relaxed, business & industrial energy use will return and emissions will pick up. Politicians will focus on getting the economy motoring again, superseding #environmental interests in the short term

Although many research groups have made estimations on China's #economicgrowth in the first quarter of 2020, no consensus has reached yet, as the economic loss caused by the novel coronavirus outbreak remains highly uncertain. mp.weixin.qq.com/s/dCaf9uWCwtQB…
Although the proposal of #newinfrastructure has captured wide attention in China, it will require in-depth study and evaluation to see if it can trully help support China’s economic recovery and help the country reach its economic and social development targets for 2020.
New framework of policy options is required under high uncertainty.

#Thread 2: Paying for the #GreenNewDeal

The Federal Budget, pt. 2
Fadhel Kaboub @FadhelKaboub

The Green New Deal will be a massive endeavor, but so was World War II. We know how to do massive endeavors. We've done them before. It's a matter of deciding to do them.
2/
We want to end fossil fuel extraction, but we don't want to end people's livelihoods. So the concept of 'just transition' – and guaranteed jobs, with decent wages and benefits – is central to the Green New Deal. #JobGuarantee
3/
Would a #JobGuarantee bankrupt the country? No; in dollars it would cost < 4% of GDP. And it would address structural unemployment and inequality and rebuild communities sustainably. We can do this.
