Back in April 2019, as Trump’s reckless trade policies had already plunged US #manufacturing into recession, the Carnival-Barker-in-Chief continued his hyping of the “Trump Economy” by tweeting “JOBS! JOBS! JOBS!” to celebrate the creation of 196,000 #jobs in March 2019. (1/x)
Trump's “JOBS! JOBS! JOBS!” tweet ignored the the fact that when Obama was President, Trump responded to a sub-200,000 jobs report by telling us it was “not a good sign” and “we could be facing another #recession.” (2/x)
The Obama-Biden recovery powered on for several years beyond Trump’s 2012 prediction of recession. It was an expansion strong enough even to survive 3 years of Trump’s corruption and incompetence. In July 2019, the Obama-Biden recovery became the longest US expansion ever. (3/)

It is regrettable that Raghuram Rajan (RR), Ex Governor RBI, is losing no opportunity trying to derail the India story hence, needs to be rebutted point-wise:

He says India’s ‘anti minority’ image will lead to loss of market.

Record exports 670 billion in FY22 entering the top 10 exporting countries.

Recently, #japan signed up to invest 42 B in next 5 yrs, India signed free trade agreement with #australia set to double trade in next 5 yrs, FTA will be signed with UK before Diwali this year….2/8
& signed whole host of #tech agreements with US in areas ranging from the skies above to the bottom of the seas below.

Indian economy set to grow between 8 to 9 percent this year.

Hence, forget losing, India set to gain market #india hugely in coming years….3/8

We know antibiotics in the #environment are a driver for #AMR

One intervention to reduce risk in this sector could be formal regulation to control #antibiotic levels in #manufacturing discharge But how viable are these measures? 🧵/1
Antibiotic supply chains are complex & opaque🕵️ This makes it hard for #policymakers to design and implement effective supply chain regulation that reduces #AMR risk but avoids unintended consequences on medicine affordability and availability /2
A new @Wellcome_AMR report attempts to address these ongoing questions through:
- mapping of antibiotic supply chains 🗺️
- analysing likely supply chain & economic impact of regulatory options 💹
- recommending next steps for supply chain sensitive regulatory approaches 🤝

#WarpedSpeed was the WORST.
We knew this in Jan. 2021 thanks to Dr. Vanessa Schmidt-Kruger. She analyzed the European Medicines Agency report on the quality control issues that came up during the mass manufacturing process of the💉, and predicted everything we are seeing now.>
Her report is an important part of the historical record of the COVID pandemic response:

"The problem that BioNTech had, is that in the clinical phase the product, i.e. the RNA, was produced with completely different techniques to how it is being produced now. During the>
clinical phase they only needed small volumes of vaccine, they were able to use very expensive techniques that delivered highly purified end products. Now that they have entered mass production...they have had to switch to lower-cost processes, e.g. using huge quantities of DNA>

Global #manufacturing output growth accelerated in December, coming back into line with growth of new orders, as supply constraints eased. Our #PMI wrap up in 10 charts
While the number of companies worldwide reporting that output was constrained by shortages continued to run at 3.5 times the long-run average in December, this is down from a record peak of 4.7 times the long-run average back in October.
Although still running at a level far in excess of anything seen prior to the pandemic, the average lengthening of supplier delivery times globally eased for a second consecutive month in December to the smallest recorded since March.

1. Better headline: "Will Common Prosperity Make Japan Great Again?" MJGA!😂 We have deep expertise and top indexes on Japanese equity, particularly currency hedging. Below is the list of some under appreciated things of Japanese equity.
2. Underappreciated: If US fiscal/monetary response to the pandemic is large, Japan's is even a larger share of GDP. Lay person language: money money money for the economy.
3. Our colleague reviewed how Warren Buffet's Japanese investment last September has turned out. Following Mr. Buffet, global investors have been putting money there quietly for a while.…

Thanks to @steve_sedgwick & @cnbcKaren for having me on #CNBC #SquawkBox this AM.

What did we discuss? Well, #inflation of course!

I prepared some slides for the show which I'm happy to present in this thread.
#macro #Fed #Yellen #JeromePowell #bankofengland #QE
Are people in denial or is the #centralbank money flood just drowning all the signals?
#Commodities, #freight, #carbon - and a whole lot besides - sure do cost a lot more, these days.

#Manufacturing #PMI survey data reveal how the UK’s exporters have underperformed their peers in the eurozone to the greatest extent for over two decades so far this year, i.e. since the end of the #Brexit transition period.
UK suppliers of components in particular have seen only a marginal increase in export sales in the past six months, while similar firms in the eurozone, in contrast, has seen record export growth of component export sales.
This is itself an underperformance by UK suppliers of a degree never previously seen in at least 20 years of survey history

Opposition is screaming about Inflation,but India under @narendramodi has curbed #Inflation,versus global peers

#VegetableInflation in India is minus 1.92% in May&Food inflation 5.01%

Globally,#FoodInflation up 39.7%, Cereal up 36.6%,Wheat price up 28% &Maize 89.3%

My thread👇
Globally #Inflation is rising because of co-ordinated fiscal stimulus,that has led to asset prices,zooming;For instance,annualized inflation in USA is 9.7%;2yrs back,US was in throes of #Disinflation

$6 trillion stimulus by #Biden has led to too much money chasing too few goods
For those wanting to know why the difference in #WPI&CPI,figures well,weights of items in CPI are based on average household expenditure,taken from consumer expenditure surveys

Weightage of Primary articles in #CPI is 55%+,with Food group alone having weight of 39.06%

1/ You're a data scientist and built an anomaly detection model. How to visualize the results?

In this thread we visualize the results of a variational autoencoder (VAE) and see how well it can detect tool failures in manufacturing.

#DataScience + #Manufacturing = 💰💰

2/ This is continuation of a series of threads (first thread quoted below) where I went over the business case for using data science and machine learning in industrial environments.

3/ I then trained 1000 VAEs to detect tool wear in metal machining (random search).

The best model was selected based on the precision-recall area-under-curve (PR-AUC). The picture below explains this process.

.@INCIndia trolls elated at minus 7.3% GDP growth in FY21,forgetting this was a #Pandemic year,in fact the worst pandemic in 102yrs

Good News in 4Q👇

GDP growth was 1.6% despite consensus of minus 1.4%

GVA growth was 3.7% Vs consensus of 2.6%

Industrial growth was solid 6.9%
In fact,both in Q3&Q4FY21,India reported positive GDP&GVA growth

Industrial growth also was +ve for 2 qtrs in a row at 1.7%&6.9%

Agricultural growth has been a positive 3%+ in every single qtr,in last 4 qtrs

Construction growth has been a massive 6.5%&14.5% in Q3&Q4
Some channels conveniently showing how WPI under @narendramodi govt has risen sharply,to 10.49% in April 2021

It is not #WPI but #CPI that matters& #RetailInflation measured by CPI was just 4.2% in April,with food inflation at 2.02%&Vegetable Inflation at minus 14.18%

Peering into the near future of the Chinese #economy, Dr. Zhang Bin thinks there will be rebound in #consumption and slowdown of #investment: 1/6…
Household consumption in #China remains significantly lower than the pre-Covid level, with great potential for recovery. As Covid’s impact lingers, service consumption growth in China remains significantly lower than its pre-pandemic levels. 2/6
Household savings maintain steady growth, with newly-added household deposits coming in at RMB 6.68 trillion in 2021Q1. Going forward, as the temperature rises and the virus is further contained, service consumption will recover further, driving rebound in general consumption.3/6

This is an excellent overview of the complexity of mRNA vaccine manufacturing.

An mRNA batch currently takes 110 days from start-finish.

“Traditional” vaccines (recombinant, vectored, inactivated) can take months longer. 1/

@eweise @kweintraub…
More about the complexity of "traditional" vaccine approaches below.

These timelines assume the process has been "scaled up" and everything is in place & ready to go: facility, equipment, raw materials, etc. Unexpected issues can add weeks or months. 2/

Here’s a good reference on #vaccine #manufacturing from several colleagues for those interested in learning more. 3/…

0/ #BigNews. Our #mRNA @mips vaccine will be fast-tracked to Phase-I clinical trial. The trial is led by our amazing collaborators @TheDohertyInst that includes two candidates mRNA and protein. Why still working on #COVID19 mRNA vaccine in Aus, people ask? Here're #4reasons:
#Reason 1: #Protection at a rapid speed: Our vaccines use a 2nd-generation technology and antigen design that is both effective and rapid. This method allowed us to produce a safe mRNA vax within 3 weeks. ESSENTIAL for rapid response if the virus continues to mutate-saving lives!
#Reason 2: #manufacturing: We have extensive Aus-only experience in #mRNA. More to come but we are in talks with many entities here in Aus and we will try all avenues to convince the relevant groups to help us build the capacity here in Aus. This will be gradual but ESSENTIAL.

Global factory growth ends 2020 close to decade-highs, but supply worsens
A key contributor to the relatively swift return of robust global #manufacturing growth in the recent months has been a revival in worldwide goods trade. There's some signs of this export boost fading though...
While there were some reports of demand having weakened amid resurgent waves of COVID-19 infections in many parts of the world, notably Europe, output, demand and trade flows were in many cases also constrained by rising supply problems.
