.@RVlahutin: We have gone through multiple crises in the last few years—but they have served as great catalysers. We have seen how the #EU is shaping its response to these crises, and the EU is now at a moment of reckoning. #Raisina2022
.@RVlahutin: Infrastructure is a strategic tool & we have to treat it like that. Connectivity is not just primarily about things like railways, but it is also about the system of values underpinned by transparency, stability & the ability to make sovereign choices

I know this isn't a popular take; I don't care. 15 months into Joe Biden's presidency, he's my favorite president of my lifetime. Funny, empathetic & ambitious with good, liberal policy -- even when conservative senators and a stolen SCOTUS stand in his way. @What46HasDone 1/
Even if he did nothing else @POTUS's record on judges justifies my vote. Biden is on track to seat more, and more qualified, judges than any president in memory. If Dems hold the Senate, the president can continue rebalancing the courts.… 2/
@POTUS started strong with two big stimulus bills, American Rescue Plan and the #infrastructure bill, which helped to ensure we didn't slip into a COVID recession. Inflation is high, but that's the cost of avoiding negative growth and lost jobs.… 3/

Current research on microplastics is the stuff of nightmares-

They’re dangerous, they’re spread through our food, they're in the air... they’re everywhere

Thread 1/x
#health #ClimateCrisis #PlasticPollution #food
Much of the research is trapped behind paywalls, and only reported on in a limited, fragmented pattern

-like so much else when large corporations cause environmental damage and impose widespread health impacts on the public

#health #ClimateCrisis #PlasticPollution #food
The growing risks of microplastics are a direct function of an ongoing push by the same sociopathic corporations that are driving the climate crisis

*How #SriLanka got ruined*

Lankans voted for #Rajapakshas knowing very well what they did in the past, including corruption, selling out national assets to #China, #dynastic politics and all.

They still voted for them because Rajapakshas promised things they could not refuse.
1. Their #GST, called VAT Tax, on all products was reduced to 8%, thus making everything cheaper in one stroke. (It also killed the govt revenue). People loved things getting cheaper.
2. The minimum #incometax threshold was changed from 5 Lakhs per annum to 30 Lakhs! Very few earned more than 30L!
A very large part of the population became #tax exempt. This was very popular among the salaried class.

Finally, the #GoldacreReview is published! (During Parliamentary Easter holidays, mid-ping-pong on the #HealthAndCareBill...)

2/ We’re calling for major tax reform. The government should increase or broaden the GST and better target currently wasteful tax concessions (such as the 50% CGT discount and super tax concessions) to fund income tax cuts. This would boost incomes for Australians over time.
3/ The high cost of childcare creates barriers for women to take up more paid work. Reducing out-of-pocket childcare costs and boosting parental leave (including for Dads and partners) would free up families’ choices and boost workforce participation, particularly for women.

How long have you been doing this?

Surely more than 12 days, so do you ever report on your progress or is your plan lurking in the shadows, fearful of retribution?

Share some numbers? Share your progress and successes?

What are you offering to motivate the masses?
Do you have any leaders, influencers or otherwise skilled people to manage this relative to time?

There is ZERO clarity.

Co-ops, like Farmer's Markets can't be scaled, so what are you proposing to scale to 111M people that helps each of them - is it just a mental shift to say
fuck the man which millions already have and need no shift they just need actionable steps to take, that 1. help THEM make money to survive and 2. Free them from the chains that bind us all - EVEN YOU! How does your system work without the internet or your smart phone?

Paper alert! I'm going to share the story of my paper with @barabasi , "Recovery Coupling in multilayer networks" out today in @NatureComms #networkscience #resilience #research 👨‍🔬🧑‍💻A thread.🧵
People have been solving models for interdependent networks for a while. The math is elegant and the models can easily show a plethora of interesting dynamical phenomena. I even wrote a review on the subject… #resilience #infrastructure #physics
The trouble is, most models require that a power asset can fail and cause a communication outage AND that a communication outage can cause a power outage. The first is common. The second? Hard to find. Both at once? No one has ever reported it. Image

Good morning! Shall we discuss something a bit more structural, although this is a cyclical theme in 2022 across Asia, from China to India and Southeast Asia. Let's talk about #infrastructure , which is the theme of the hour & the next decade🛣️🌉🚆📶⚡️

@natixis @NatixisResearch
Today, infrastructure stocks are soaring in China as hope of government policy leaning towards this sector to shore up domestic demand in sagging growth momentum.

In India, infrastructure has been a big theme & even more so after the expanded budget that prioritizes it ⏫📈.
Why is infrastructure the theme of the hour and the next 2 decades? Simply put: infrastructure is essential for the improvement of the quality of life, production of goods, services and to raise productivity of labor.

Demand for infrastructure is high & will sky rocket.

Infrastructure as a Theme

A Thread!

#stockmarket #investing #infrastructure #infrastocks

To understand the infrastructure cycle, we go back in time and look at our previous super Capex cycle, which started from 2003 to 2012

#capex #Markets

We saw that the commodity prices were increasing, reforms such as the Electricity Act came into play and government spending grew at a rapid pace of 23% CAGR. This led to overall growth in the capital cycle
