#NFIB data says we are only in a #recovery, not an #economic expansion.
While the NFIB data doesn't get much #media attention, it should as it tells you much about what is really happening in the #economy.

Reason I pay attention to #NFIB
Sept 2019 - Data rings alarm bells on #recession.
April 2020 - Data says recession arrived.
May 2020 - Data says #economic recovery not as strong as media suggests.

@IndiatechO is releasing a two series White-paper on #Crypto, the first paper talks about the opportunities offered by #Crypto and #blockchain to the world. With rapidly growing potential, #India needs to regulate the sector. Link to the #IndiaTechDecoder: indiatech.org/wp-content/upl…
India has a great opportunity to capitalise on the huge potential that the industry holds. The second paper offers solutions and suggestions that @IndiatechO has proposed as a 5-point framework on how the Indian #government can best regulate #Crypto while encouraging innovation.
According to the #IndiaTechDecoder opportunities from #Crypto adoption is far more than simply attracting #FDI, with benefits including enhancing the country’s technological skillset, thereby broadening #employment opportunities.

Just in | Information and Broadcasting Minister Prakash Javadekar says Cabinet approved production linked incentive schemes for high efficiency solar panels and white goods.
- @DaminiNath reports.
@DaminiNath Commerce and Industry Minister #PiyushGoyal says #PLI scheme for white goods, that is LEDs and air-conditioners, and high efficiency solar panels approved today. Four other PLI schemes are in an advanced stage.
Going forward, we will become self reliant in solar equipment manufacturing and it will lead to #employment. 30,000 will get direct employment and 1 lakh indirect employment: Goyal

"Capital is back because low growth is back" @PikettyLeMonde said, stating that decreasing growth leads to increasing #inequality. If that would be true, we have a social-ecological dilemma #degrowth. I wrote my BA about it and got the #GSÖBW price for it yesterday. Thread. 1/14
Yesterday was #GlobalClimateStrike. Many studies show: The #ClimateCrisis can only be solved if economic growth rates in the North decrease rapidly. @timparrique, @g_kallis, @jasonhickel. If decreasing growth necessarily leads to increasing inequality, we have a problem. 2/14
True,since the 1980s economic growth has decreased in Germany, while income and wealth inequality have increased @CharlyBartels @MiriamRehm. But is it a correlation or causality? I argue, political decisions led to increasing inequality, not declining growth. Four arguments: 3/14

In light of the recent events involving the owners of #Cannoli and their manager,
we at the Centre for Labour Research (CLR), in the interest of protecting the
fundamental human #right to #dignity, condemn any and all forms of #harassment.
2/12
The viral video in which the owners of Cannoli are seen singling out and
humiliating their manager due to his inability to speak the colonisers language for
their entertainment depicts a form of #workplaceharassment. Such behaviour is
unacceptable.

It is the responsibility of the employer to ensure that each and every employee,
regardless of their #employment status, the sector of employment, or their
occupation feel safe, respected and included at the workplace.

The @NFIB #survey doesn't get much #media attention, but it should. Small businesses make up almost 70% of #employment and their #confidence tells us much about the #economy and #smallcap stocks.

In December, the #NFIB survey declined to 95.9 from a peak of 108.8. Notably, many suggest the drop was “#politically driven” by #conservative owners. While there was indeed a drop following the election, the decline continues what started in 2018.

Hopes for a #strong #economic recovery may be premature. While #stimulus will give a short-term lift to the economy, once it is spent, growth fades. Businesses won't #invest into artificial supports.

If an organisation wants to enhance pattern recognition and imagery analysis capability, recruiting more autistic people could be advantageous to them. A key challenge is making the working environment and culture appropriate and acceptable to us long-term.

We’re capable of so much more than “sifting through large amounts of geospatial data from various sources, including drones and satellites, as well as open-source datasets.” I wonder how open they’ll be to neurodivergent perception, communication and culture?

This is an important issue, because if we get hired for a narrow, specific ability we’re being treated a bit like machines, instead of complete human beings. We have so much more to offer than data sifting, if organisations are enlightened enough to realise it.

When we rest we often feel guilty. Society values effort, productivity and achievement above everything. But for me resting isn’t doing nothing, it’s an essential part of preparing to do something, and recovering afterwards. It’s how I survive.

At nursery #school #rest was factored in. We napped on camp beds with scratchy blankets after lunch. Even at primary school we were given the opportunity to lay our heads on our hands on our wooden desks while the teacher read to us. Short interludes in otherwise hectic days.

The thing I remember most about secondary school is rushing. We were always hurrying from one place to another, at risk of being late, but not allowed to run. My only restful moments were in the art room, library and garden, or walking up to the playing fields to do sports.

📢 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...

The turn of the calendar year invites the temptation to prognosticate regarding the course of the year ahead for the #economy and for #markets, and not being immune to that impulse, here are our views on the “11 themes to consider as we look toward 2021:” bit.ly/386mb0r
In preview, one key theme is that 2021’s nominal #GDP growth is likely to surprise many skeptics with its strength. The sources of upside surprise can be found in: 1) the new #fiscal #stimulus combined with structural budget #deficits
And in 2) the @federalreserve’s ongoing asset purchases and 3) the impressive #economic momentum that is still broadly underestimated, as a post-election, and #pandemic-recovering world can catalyze 2020/21’s monetized #stimulus (more than 15% of GDP) into impressive NGDP growth.

#UK #employment no.s show the horrendous cost of #lockdown leapfrog and all the other government stupidity during this pan(dem)ic.

Total, economy-wide hours worked off 9.1%

#COVID19(33) #ONS
#private sector #jobs down 422k (-378k ex rail worker shift). Public sector up 143k (+99k ex-rail).

Of the 280k total, 7 out of 8 lost by those starting out in life, 16-24 yo; within which more than 1 in 4 of 16-17 yo jobs gone, "POOF!!"

#redundancies have more than tripled from 106k to 370k, while #vacancies have fallen from 848k to 547k.

This means that everyone newly #unemployed now has 1.5 openings to chase versus 7.7 a year ago. Good luck with THAT!

When I was at work yesterday my mind wandered onto the subject of proficiency. This was partly prompted by a discussion about driving tests. It seems that a three point turn is no longer required but you do have to be able to parallel park. Made me think about being

As the chat about driving tests died down I started to think about what it means to be socially proficient in a predominantly neurotypical world. Something I have always struggled with. I can do it, but it’s incredibly effortful, it quickly becomes exhausting.
#AllAutistics

One of the neurotypical criteria for social proficiency is saying neither too little nor too much. I may give brief factual answers where opening up was expected. I may also dive deep into answering what was only ever supposed to be a superficial question. It’s very tricky.
