State Government Debt Risk - a history that repeats too often!

As the work on building Amravati, the new capital city AP, comes to a grinding halt, concerns emerge about Amravati (APCRDA) bonds held by Franklin MF (~Rs. 1000 Cr) and Birla MF (Rs. ~300 Cr). Thread 1/11
During the Chandrababu Govt, Amravati received political as well as financial patronage. Now, with Jagan Reddy being incharge of the state, the project is in shambles. World Bank & ADB pulled out of the project and the Government is looking for reasons to scrap it. 2/n
The bonds issued to support the financing needs of the project were subscribed by Franklin MF and Birla MF. The bonds are guaranteed by the AP Govt but it's not sure if the Govt would keep servicing the bonds. The risk of lending to a state govt has again come to the fore. 3/11

TRUSTING RACIST MASS MURDERERS

The USA is guilty of multiple counts of mass murder.

How do you go about trusting a mass murderer to do the right thing?

Apparently the heads of European states have no problem doing so.

Are they mad, or are we?

TRUSTING RACIST MASS MURDERERS

The USA finds it easy to kill millions if they aren’t white. The native Americans, then came the African slaves.

Later, the Japanese, then the Vietnamese. In recent times the Iraqis, Libyans, Syrians & Yemenis.

TRUSTING RACIST MASS MURDERERS

Is it just coincidence that the USA can kill millions of non-white people & few to no questions are asked by the heads of state in western Europe?

Are those heads of state racists too?

Conscious racism or not.

Why is this a #puzzle for you?

I have been thinking quite a bit about the issues raised by the BMJ article below (& others) and the language of #commercialdeterminantsofhealth or #CDoH
It is so important that #socialscientists , including #anthropologists participate in these conversations
It is so important that we think about the role of #industry interests in shaping #health & #socialscientists can help frame these conversations in broader terms

This piece is getting a lot closer to key issues we discuss in the #anthropology of #reproduction. A few key issues I would like to note.
1) The concept of #stratifiedreproduction is helpful here. Originally described by Shellee Colen, #stratifiedreproduction describes systematic ways in which some people's #reproduction is valued & nurtured, while others' are devalued & hindered.
2) We've been working w/ this concept since it was put at the center of our emerging field of the #anthropology of #reproduction in 1995 when Faye Ginsburg & Rayna Rapp published the pivotal edited volume "Conceiving the New World Order" tinyurl.com/y9c4jjv3

1. #Midterms2018 - The Facts:
- To win the #House the #Democrats need 23 more seats: Not easy
- To win the #Senate they need 2 more and successfully defend existing seats (100 seats in total, 2 for each #state): Not easy
- I detect that the #TrumpTrain (#RedWave) runs full speed!
2. #Midterms2018 - #Trump does a lot right:
- "The Base" was well prepared: You see it at all Trump-rallies
- Trump pushes a few emotive topics (illegal #migration): He knows - "Keep it simple, stupid!" #KISS
- The numbers are on his side: #Economy & #JobNumbers great
3. #Midterms2018 - What the #Democrats do wrong:
- Too many damaged goods: #ElizabethWarren (#Fakecahontas), #HillaryClinton despite all the support, over a billion war-chest & #media on her side LOST! But they keep pushing her!
- No single winning face, to win the votes!

There's far too much #bull being rattled around this ref. proposal. Wake up #Ireland folks; yes, we need to amend wording to reflect reality, ensure equality of responsibility is norm; no, it would be terminally stupid to throw it all out altogether,reduce legal standing of all/1
2/ from potentially exploitative employers' points of view. Amendment should not mean rescinding basic tenets on protecting #economic position of wo/men w children & of childrens' rights to home & care there, it should mean updating in line with values & mores of us now & ongoing
3/ See the shiiiiit-stirrrrring for what it is: #brexit deflector #Border deflector #EU agreement deflector #criminalcase going down deflector #Referendum #Women of #Ireland you're way brighter than that, get a grip. And trolls can just bot off with themselves. Hi @TransparentRef
