.@FT's @sarahoconnor_
I also think that making economics more understandable is a worthy endeavour, especially right now....Because the profession suffers from what Andy Haldane, former chief economist at the Bank of England, calls a “twin deficit”, of understanding and of trust.
@FT @sarahoconnor_ "In a UK survey in 2019, 40 per cent of respondents said it had become more difficult to understand economics."
"Part of this is a translation problem. Most economic concepts are not complicated, but they’re couched in a language that makes no sense to people who don’t speak it."

You can be forgiven for thinking the Great #Inflation Story is how a pandemic, a senseless war, and #monopolistic price-gouging temporarily drove up prices, prompting calls to crush workers and suppress wages in order to "reduce demand" for goods:

Net Cash Flow is an important metric many investors look at when researching companies.

But do you know that cash flows can be easily manipulated?

Let's see how:

#investing #finance #FinancialFreedom #Accounting
The Cash Flow Statement is one of the three most important financial statements of a company.

The other two being P&L Statement and the Balance Sheet.

Balance Sheet shows us the assets and liabilities of the company and is very important to look at when analyzing cash flows.
Cash position of a company has an inverse relation with Assets and a direct relation with Liabilities.

For e.g., you BURN cash to acquire an Asset. So when Assets increase, the cash position DECREASES.

On the corollary, an increase in Liabilities INCREASES the cash position.

This mornings rant is about #paidfamilyleave in Colorado & how #voters overwhelmingly passed FAMLI

[& employers can now register for CO’s new program finally; employees max 12 weeks of paid leave a yr + 4 additional wks for #pregnancy or #childbirth complications]

#copolitics
Let’s get 1st thing straight - this 🧵 is no insight into the near 15 yrs #advocates fought for #paidfamilyleave at the CO state Capitol before #voters passed it on the #ballot

I, like many folks - came into the advocacy for #FAMLI yrs after lots of fight. Grateful to have it
Many of us worked on the #ballotmeasure in 2020 & #voters approved the program by 57% of the vote ✨ the amount of barriers set in place to #advocate for #paidfamilyleave & #pass it & then #implement it - have been eye opening 👁 to say the least. #copilitics

Why have #schoolvouchers programs persisted and expanded despite a more lopsided base of objective evidence against them than nearly any other current #edpolicy #education initiative?

A few reasons 🧵🪡

1/
First is that today #schoolvouchers activists are directly part of the larger #trump-style revanchist and anti-democratic turn in American politics since Obama’s second term.

Politically their success is intertwined.
2/
But as a policy matter too we see #schoolvouchers linger around even as #education research has tried to place itself in an #evidencebased position to inform policy.

If evidence were all that informed #edpolicy then vouchers would have been dead a decade ago.

#Web3 #Cities #Polarization #EmergentEngineering #Decentralization
We start with a talk by SFI President David Krakauer:

"Would anyone care to guess why we're so GOOD at building transistors and so CRAP at designing drugs?"

"This thing [points to transistor] lives in a centralized system. This thing [points to cancer drug] lives in US."
"I'm going to pick on economics, because we like to do that at SFI. 'Ooh, look at that cover! So techy. Global, heat maps...' But here's 'Networks' [in the textbook]. THAT'S IT. Here's '#ComplexityEconomics.' NOTHING."

Do you believe there are significant differences between #Economics and #Tokenomics of #web3?

Can we simply apply what we know from #Econ101 to tokens and become successful investors and buidlers?

We asked a Tokenomist to find out! 🧵 👇 Image
#Economics is a social science that studies the production, distribution, and consumption of goods and services that focuses on the behavior and interactions of economic actors and how economies work. Economics is PREDICTIVE: Given rules, what outcome can one expect? Image
#Tokenomics is the study of token supply & demand dynamics, behavioral mechanisms, and incentive design. All characteristics are programmed and the outcomes can be observed transparently on-chain.

Tokenomics is DESIGN oriented: Given desired outcomes, what rules does one create? Image

Watching the UK🇬🇧 self-immolate❤️‍🔥, first with Brexit and now the disastrous libertarian economic policies of Liz Truss, it’s time to debunk the Scarcity Myth. 1/🧵
#ScarcityMyth
If you’re catching up on the UK, read this @jaredbrock post.

Of all the economic myths (my pinned tweet video debunks 8 of them), the #ScarcityMyth is the most pernicious because it creates a self-fulfilling prophecy. If we believe in it and act upon it, we are *guaranteed* scarcity. 3/

#Economics, what do we have going on? History lessons.
#Market #Analysis 9/25
A colleague of mine sent this today:
mishtalk.com/economics/stro… .
It even cites what I planned to cite below (Soros vs UK 1992), that's how hilarious this is. Clearly we're all on the same page. It was hot on my mind, as JPY said they were going to sell $USD to buy $JPY.
For a million reasons I intuitively knew this was silly. For one, why not print JPY? For two, why make an openly hostile action towards USD? Stupid. For #3, why not arbitrage your own currency? It's not like any country doesn't do that or hasn't.

I am listening to #Starky, the #historian, who is trying his level best to defend slavery and #English #Buccaneer #William #Beckford.
William owned some 40,000 acres of #sugar plantation growing land and had thousands of enslaved #workers working on his property in #Jamaica.
No wonder the bad memories survived.
During the 1970s Manley introduced Democratic Socialism in Jamaica which was a reactionary political movement against the injustices committed by the colonialists against the Jamaican People.
Economic historians confuse that with capitalism.
Free Enterprise & Free Market Economy, with Free movement of factors of production across markets, the freedom of choice exercised in terms of either consumption or occupation, and other matters pertinent to production, prices, and distribution are value-fact dichotomy hypotheses
