Washington State enacted a 7% capital gains tax levied on annual profits in excess of $250,000, and made a *fortune*, $600m more than projected in the first year, despite a 25% drop in the stock market and blistering #InterestRate hikes:…

Capital gains taxes are levied on "passive income" - money you get for owning stuff. The capital gains rate is *much* lower than the income tax rate - the rate you pay for *doing stuff*.

Call me a conspiratorialist, but when CEOs brag on earnings callsabout how covid, war, and #inflation scare-stories them hike prices and rake in never-before-seen margins, I think it's reasonable to blame inflation on greed, not on workers getting a couple of covid checks.

Amazingly, this is controversial! For more than a year, Very Serious People dismissed the #greedflation hypothesis - that CEOs aren't lying when they boast about using pretexts to hike prices - is a conspiracy theory used to dupe people who Just Don't Understand Economics.

#CarlaHinrichs, die Sprecherin von #LastGen trendet. Was ich da alles gelesen habe, ist echt unterirdisch! Wer die nahende #Klimakatastrophe noch immer leugnet, weil wir zufällig einen regnerischen April haben, dem ist echt nicht mehr zu helfen. Oft habe ich das Gefühl, dass die
meisten Menschen der Situation völlig gleichgültig begegnen. Von wegen, das ist doch alles so weit weg, und das stimmt doch sowieso nicht. Das kommt davon, weil genügend #Lobbyisten, die #HaltDieFresseBild und genügend Parteien wie die #CDU, #FDP und #noafd gegen den #Klimawandel
reden. Deshalb werden #Klimaaktivisten schlimmer verfolgt als Verbrecher. Ich sehe echt schwarz für die Zukunft. Global gesehen, scheint sich nämlich auch nichts zu tun. Der #Amazonas wird weiter in Rekordtempo abgeholzt. Unser #Plastikmüll weiter in verschiedene Länder

#Enshittification is platforms devouring themselves: first they tempt users with goodies. Once users are locked in, goodies are withdrawn and dangled before businesses. Once business customers are stuck, all value is claimed for platform shareholders:…

Enshittification isn't just another way of saying "fraud" or "price gouging" or "wage theft." Enshittification is intrinsically digital, because moving all those goodies around requires the flexibility that only comes with a *digital* businesses.

When @wef opens in #Davos , @Oxfam puts out their alternative State of the World rpt. This year's shows that:
• The richest 1% hold 45.6% of global wealth, while the poorest half of the world have just 0.75%.
• 81 Billionaires hold more wealth than 50% of the world.
• 10 billionaires own more than 200 million African women combined.

The richest got WAY richer during the #pandemic -- the top 1% richest got 63% wealthier in 2020-21. We mere mortals got only 10% richer in 2 years, on average.
Food & energy costs are the main drivers of #inflation; companies in those sectors in 2022:
• made $306bn in windfall profits;
• increased profits 256% in 2022 compared w/the 2018–2021 average;
• paid $257bn to stock shareholders in 2022

Focus more on broad patterns, less on specific individuals & case studies.

From the book - #ThePsychologyOfMoney
[A thread on my key learnings from this book]
Doing well with money has little to do with your smartness, a lot to do with how you behave. And behaviour is hard to teach.

#ThePsychologyOfMoney 1/n
The hardest financial skill is getting the goalpost to stop moving.

Modern capitalism is a pro at two things: generating wealth and generating envy.

Life isn’t any fun without a sense of ‘enough’.

En muchos países se celebra la amistad en homenaje de una de las proezas más grandes de la historia de la humanidad: la llegada del hombre a la luna. ¿Qué nos enseña el judaísmo al respecto? Sale hilo con 3 enseñanzas sobre la amistad.

#DiaDelAmigo #FelizDiaDelAmigo #JeffBezos Image
Primer caso: Iehudá y Jirá el adulamí. Luego de la venta de su hermano Iosef como esclavo, la culpa llevó a Iehudá, líder de los hermanos, a separarse de ellos. Durante el distanciamiento, entabló amistad con Jirá de Adulam, quien no pertenecía a la familia de Israel.
En ese tiempo Iehudá se casó y tuvo tres hijos. Su hijo primogénito, Er, llegó a la adultez y se casó con una joven muy buena llamada Tamar. Er murió sin hijos y su viuda se casó con Onan, el segundo hijo de Iehuda.

Congrats to #RichardBranson and #JeffBezos for proving this week that human advancement is made possible by #fossilfuels.
May they never again babble on about #ClimateChange and the need for “green energy” as they have burned millions of gallons of carbon-rich rocket fuel… for fun.
May they never again demand we- the mere 1 comma club- “transition” to “alternatives” as their carbon footprint is larger than a lifetime of middle American families.

(📸: Twitter/IANS)
Virgin Galactic's VSS Unity space-plane's seemingly simple flight marked a huge milestone一the beginning of commercial space flights, a pipe dream cradled by #RichardBranson, #JeffBezos, and #ElonMusk, the big three of privately funded space travel companies.
Onboard VSS Unity, #RichardBranson lived his dream of watching the earth from space; #JeffBezos is next in line with a space flight of his own company Blue Origin, scheduled to take off next Tuesday, July 20, 2021.

#RichardBranson and #JeffBezos will fly in industry w no mandatory safety regulations to protect passengers & crew. FAA's only focus is making sure that people and property on the ground are not injured or killed. The agency can't step in until there is an accident or close call.
A regulatory moratorium was put in place in 2004. It's been repeatedly extended and will expire in 2023 unless it is renewed. Purpose was to let companies experiment w different designs and approaches without burdening them with costly regulations.
Passengers fly at own risk after signing waiver. Companies required to lay out risks for them. New Mexico where #VirginGalactic #RichardBranson will fly #SpaceShipTwo #VSSUnity on Sunday has a law limiting lawsuits to cases of gross negligence or intentional harm.
