In our latest #growth report for #Pakistan, we examined, among other themes, the role of #FDI in the country. How much #Pakistan attracts, how much it could attract, the impact on #productivity and on #jobs.

A short 🧵👇

openknowledge.worldbank.org/handle/10986/3…
1) #FDI is a useful source of financing for #developing countries. It is stable, and typically associated w/ #export growth, #job creation and #productivity upgrading. Does that all of that apply to #FDI in #Pakistan? Let's see...
2) #Pakistan's #FDI inflows/GDP (in green below) have been historically low and declining. Image

...wants to reciprocate, citing #China’s refusal to discuss meaningful arms control. “I don’t see a basis for deep coöperation” with #Xi’s China, Erickson said. “I’m sad to say that.”

KEY: In what areas is the #PRC under Xi willing to accommodate the US?
•To make the first move in doing so?
•Can anyone name one specific example?

Moreover, in the #PRC under #Xi, is there anything like an equivalent to this high-profile conference @Harvard, w a concluding panel on the subject of “Toward Coexistence 2.0: What Should #CHINA Do?”

This mornings rant is about #paidfamilyleave in Colorado & how #voters overwhelmingly passed FAMLI

[& employers can now register for CO’s new program finally; employees max 12 weeks of paid leave a yr + 4 additional wks for #pregnancy or #childbirth complications]

#copolitics
Let’s get 1st thing straight - this 🧵 is no insight into the near 15 yrs #advocates fought for #paidfamilyleave at the CO state Capitol before #voters passed it on the #ballot

I, like many folks - came into the advocacy for #FAMLI yrs after lots of fight. Grateful to have it
Many of us worked on the #ballotmeasure in 2020 & #voters approved the program by 57% of the vote ✨ the amount of barriers set in place to #advocate for #paidfamilyleave & #pass it & then #implement it - have been eye opening 👁 to say the least. #copilitics

1) Effects of Uber & Lyft Entry on US Cities

Uber & Lyft affect different cities differently:
⬆️ vehicle ownership in car-dependent & slow growth cities
⬇️ transit ridership most in cities with higher income & fewer children

This mornings rant is dedicated to all the folks doing #community designed policy. I see MANY ppl talk about this in #copolitics & very FEW tangibly do it successfully.

Join me in yesterdays presentation to @DePaulU students & some good local examples - a 🧵
Whether it’s small p or big P #policy how we design initiatives, how we write bills, how we engage testifiers, how we build coalitions & organize - can perpetuate inequities we’re trying to disrupt. #copilitics

white supremacy cultural characteristics love policy & advocacy
We’ve got incredible #leaders that stray away from white supremacy cultural characteristics in advocacy & lead with #integrity

Like the @ColoradoSPC @elephant_circle @S2SSisters @9to5Colorado @DenverTaskForce#community designed #leadership & #policy [great CO give list]

It was awesome to give a presentation w/ my friends at the reciprocity collective {who do outreach w/ #unhoused folks in #denver} to a students from ⁦@DePaulU⁩ on #policy #advocacy & what it can look like when you center #communitypower #copolitics@ProgressNowCO
There’s a beautiful thing that happens when we build policy with people most impacted, & leaders who understand social determinants of health, & students, & direct service providers. #copolitics #denverliving shout out to Amanda Orta - who runs programming for COVIVO #policy
Chicago has very similar niche #housing issues as #Denver - a group of parents from south side built policy development w/ #workingparents in Denver last yr - we convened it, it’s awesome to see parents & young ppl advocating for complex housing issues. In their communities.

1) I lived under the regime of the #SEC for 25 years as an investment banker. So what I am about to tell you is nothing new to me. Every member of the securities industry can corroborate and every securities lawyer with integrity can back these statements.
2) DISCLAIMER: Before you proceed, you must know that I am not a #securities lawyer, and this is not legal advice. In addition, these are only my own opinions.
3) The SEC designs rules that makes them "operatively contagious", like a virus. If Im sick and I touch you, you get sick. To understand what this means one first MUST understand the term #Gatekeeper as it is has been commonly used in the regulatory community.

Earlier this week the @federalreserve raised #policy rates at an extraordinary 75 basis point increment (its fourth time doing so this year), in an attempt to moderate excessively high levels of #inflation.
Still, if the central bankers were hoping to see signs of slowing in the persistently solid #LaborMarkets, as an indicator that policies were slowing growth and in turn #inflation, they may be somewhat disheartened by today’s data.
Indeed, nonfarm #payrolls increased by 261k jobs in Oct, with private employment rising an average of 262k/month over the past three months, which does not yet imply that the slowing that policymakers believe we’ll need to see to tame #inflation has arrived.

The @federalreserve’s #FOMC has now moved in 75 basis point increments four times this year to get to a sought-after #policy destination very quickly.
Yet, the destination seems to have moved further away with each subsequent elevated #inflation print, and with #employment in the country remaining very tight.
Hence, while moving the #FederalFunds rate at a very fast 75 bps increment seemed almost inconceivable several months ago, especially as the #Fed was still undertaking quantitative easing (#QE) in March, we have become used to this extraordinary increment.

We find ourselves at the crossroads where #markets and #fundamental realities meet. From this point, the outlook for equities over the next 9-12 months is more #bearish than #bullish.

Notably, the “difference this time” is the #Fed is aggressively tightening #monetary #policy to slow economic growth and reduce demand-driven inflation. The consequence is negative concerning both #economic and #earnings growth.

I would love to hear @POTUS @JoeBiden use the bully pulpit to articulate a redemption narrative around his shift in policy. #USA #drugs #law #policy #amends #repentance #repair
It is the right thing to do — the #USA is in a revolutionary, transformational moment, change is happening so quickly — and would be an example of accountability for past harms done, of #repentance and #repair, an #amends. #drugs #law #policy @POTUS @JoeBiden
Heavens knows former Pres. Trump used the bully pulpit to spew hate, slurs, mockery; he never accepted accountability nor showed contrition or #repentance, nor made #amends for problem behavior. #USA #drugs #law #policy #accountability #repair

#SupremeCourt Constitution Bench headed by Justice KM Joseph to hear matter of WhatsApp's 2021 privacy policy, as to if it violates users' right to privacy under Article 21.

#WhatsApp @WhatsApp #privacy #policy
Sr Adv Shyam Divan: I'm appearing for the appellants. I understand this is for directions.

Justice Joseph: Pleadings are complete?

SG: Yes. Since list was updated at midnight, i could not get instructions. From media reports, i read that the (Data Protection) Bill has been ..
SG: Withdrawn.

Justice Joseph: Why has this been referred?

Divan: There were no questions formulated of reference. There is a messaging company called WhatsApp. There have been orders against it by HCs, questions only raised on maintenability.
