It was a pleasure to present first thoughts of my master's thesis on #MMT and #degrowth at the @WSSAcon in Denver. I’m currently writing my thesis at @presseunikassel and @LevyEcon. I’d happy for any comment and feedback. A thread 1/
When the government spends, it must either collect #taxes or take on #debt – so the widespread assumption. A growing economy does not pose a problem, as long as g > r the debt-to-GDP ratio declines over time, particularly if loans have low interest rates and long maturities 2/
However,if the economy stops growing or if it even declines, the debt ratio rises and tax revenue declines. If one assumes that the economy should not grow endlessly for socioecological reasons #degrowth @timparrique @MGSchmelzer, how can government spending then be financed? 3/

Oh, #Drosten fängt an über das #Wuhan Labor zu södern! :)

„Man kann in allen öffentlichen Äußerungen von mir sehen, dass ich immer offen war für beide Möglichkeiten."

Und nächste Woche beweist er dann als Vorreiter die #Labor Hypothese... ;)

#Drosten war da immer maximal offen :)

"Sie ist zwar geringfügig anders als die aus dem SARS-CoV-2-Virus des Menschen, aber die ist schon sehr, sehr ähnlich", erklärt Drosten. Er betont, die Auffassung des künstlich erzeugten Virus "ist damit vom Tisch"

THREAD.

There is dignity in labour.

Labour is anything you engage in mentally and physically that delivers value.
The confidence and self worth that comes from delivering value is unparalleled.

WHAT you become while working is more important than your present renumeration.
1/3
Over money, pick a boss that HAS and is willing to TEACH you what it takes to progress in your career path. Learn.

FOCUS -
Chronic envious bosses are a great paradoxical creation anomaly - avoid that energy for there is so much positive change waiting for your handling.
2/3
Every platform you occupy is an outlet to beautify someone's life.
You may be someone's last chance for hope.

Be their fulfillment from God promise that "Faith is worth fighting for".
Never underestimate the power of little efforts, the mosquito is an entity to reckon with.

⚖️ LEGAL LOOKOUT 1: We’ve read with interest the amicus brief below filed by 24 health policy experts in the @texmed v. @HHSGov lawsuit, as we filed one, too.

Without any further digging, though, we can see off the bat that a majority of the so-called experts who signed

We respect and cherish the fact that everyone party to a significant #policy debate like this one over #regulatory implementation of the #NoSurprisesAct has a voice.

But, a question to @RonaldKlain, @SecBecerra, and

“US-#China Competition Enters the Decade of Max Danger: #Policy Ideas to Avoid Losing the 2020s”

My latest with Gabe Collins @BakerInstitute!

#Xi
#Taiwan
As #PRC/#CCP power peaks over this decade, #Xi may seek #Taiwan as historic prize.

To protect their security & rules-based order, US/Allies must mobilize immediately to deter aggression.

The mission is vital, the stakes are high, & the clock is ticking.

bit.ly/PLA2027 Image
US/Allies/#Taiwan now face “#DecadeOfDanger” w/ peaking #Xi/#CCP/#PRC as #China has extreme version of “S-Curved #slowdown.”

Xi’s risk acceptance will likely be amplified by his track record of largely-uncountered revisionist actions vs. neighbors & RBO.

🇺🇸We expect easing #labor supply constraints & historically tight labor market conditions will draw people back into the US workforce in the coming quarters

We see the US labor force participation (LFPR) rate gradually rising from 61.6% to around 62.6% by the end 2022

Short 🧵
While the LFPR recovery is expected to undershoot the pre-pandemic rate (over 63%), the shortfall mostly reflects an aging population.

We find that the drag from baby boomers retiring (or exiting early) has offset the boost from sidelined workers re-entering the labor force.
We estimate that about 30% of the LFPR shortfall, or 0.4ppt, is structural (aging of the US population).

Remaining 70% attributable to early retirement, lost immigration, & some temporary headwinds stemming from lingering Covid fear, childcare responsibilities, & discouragement

Hi folks! Welcome to a bare-bones #Pennsylvania #MoCTrack for the week ending 10/31/21.

Since it is so close to #ElectionDay2021 (which should be your focus), I’m just going to run down the votes and quotes, with basic links.
#MoCTrack 1/20
Full Report- bit.ly/3BwI59Y
The House passed a bill to fund shelters and programs to address #DomesticViolence.

Over 95% of #GOP MoCs voted No on this. #Shame.

8 of 9 #Pennsylvania GOP MoCs were NO votes, only #PA01's @RepBrianFitz voted YES.
#MoCTrack 2/20
govtrack.us/congress/bills…
In case you were wondering why all those #GOP House members voted NO a #DomesticViolence prevention bill? This portion from the speech of Rep. Bob Good of Virginia gives you an idea.

The bill passed, thankfully.

Anyone perusing the top articles of major media outlets last weekend would have read several pieces on the extraordinary #shortages being witnessed in the U.S. #economy today, and particularly those in the #labor market.
The tone of many articles was pessimistic, suggesting that the #supply-side #shortages and dislocations may be systemic, or long-term, but we think there’s evidence that the U.S. #economy will display considerably greater dynamism and resilience than the pessimists believe.
First, it’s vital to recognize that this is a #supply constraint problem, not one of #demand. Indeed, strong demand is being driven by a host of powerful influences: 1) household balance sheets never been cleaner and HH #wealth is $25 trillion greater now than pre-Covid level.

This was what I worried would happen with @Booker4KY. Not be on the offensive with @RandPaul, who's an abysmal, but only on the defensive when need to. Just like the @KyDems always do, which is a losing strategy. But Booker's running on policies that are materially popular!!!
Here's a fun fact about running in an election... If you run as an Aggressive & Offensive Candidate with Policies that help the People & their Material Well-being, then you win.
Here's how I know; In the 2015 Midterms, @AlanGrayson of the @FlaDems, he won with no problem. He was unapologetic when being a "#Progressive", stands up with his Principles & goes for the Jugular in Political Ads at his Opponents on how their Policies are Wrong, Evil & Bad &...

September witnessed a somewhat disappointing nonfarm #payroll gain of 194,000 jobs, which was weaker than the upwardly revised August gain of 365,000 and was well below #economists’ consensus estimates of nearly 490,000 jobs.
Clearly, there are significant #labor supply issues limiting the pace of recovery. Further, the #unemployment rate declined meaningfully, from 5.2% to 4.8% in Sept, and average hourly #earnings saw gains of 0.62% m-o-m, which brings the measure to 4.58% greater on a y-o-y basis.
The most interesting part of today’s #JobsReport, and much of the other recent #economic/corporate data, is that it’s the supply of resources that’s creating systemic pricing pressure, as well as consequently dulling growth of an #economy not lacking demand in virtually any area.

⚠️ GROSS COI REVEALED: In an extraordinary and fantastically written investigative report, @theintercept's @rose_n_adams unveils how @UHC co-opted @zackcooperYale's #surprisemedicalbill study, all while #Congress embraced it as "academic" and "unbiased" work to write #SMB law.
1⃣ This lays bare how #UnitedHealth has manipulated #surprisebill "research" to enrich itself at the expense of all #patients and the frontline #medical providers risking their lives over the past few years of #Covid.

2⃣ The study was foundational in the #SMB debate, and...

Links between the organisers &groups behind anti-#lockdown protests are VERY interesting.
Project Veritas is a far-right political dirty tricks operation &disinformation group linked to ultraconservative Republicans, mercenary head Erik Prince, a former MI-6 spy, &is well funded.
The right wing dirty tricks group #ProjectVeritas is cozy with Murdoch’s SkyNews:
“Isn’t it interesting how these revelations from Project Veritas are only being carried on Sky News Australia after dark and also in America on Fox News.” skynews.com.au/australia-news…

Today’s robust #inflation data surprised in its strength and will likely persist in the short-run, and in some areas the intermediate-term, although we think that long-term the @federalreserve is largely correct in identifying real #economy price gains as mostly #transitory.
Much of today’s #inflation is due to reopening factors and supply constraints, but as #SupplyChains normalize from Covid-related shocks and #inventories rebuild, we expect much of the recent inflation will be transitory, with some stickiness in pricing pressure longer-run. Image
That may be especially the case where #inventory levels are harder to build up quickly and continued #demand from higher levels of #growth persist for at least the next year, or so.

#AI innovation relies on a massive and often severely underpaid shadow work force to label data. Our new white paper provides recs for how the AI industry can improve conditions for these workers. 1/5 partnershiponai.org/responsible-so…
As the AI industry and its reliance on data enrichment #labor continues to grow, it's critical to ensure that these workers are valued and provided with quality working conditions. 2/5
The findings and recommendations in the white paper draw upon existing research as well as insights from PAI’s interviews and workshops with experts from different areas of the data enrichment ecosystem. We are grateful to everyone who helped bring it to life. 3/5
