HEALS vs. CARES vs. Heroes stimulus packages: Key differences between the proposed acts @POTUS @cnet @senategop @SenateDems
"The GOP's HEALS Act is the front-running proposal, but Democratic leaders strongly object to the $1 trillion price tag, which they see as too small, and slashing unemployment assistance. The House of Representatives' counterproposal costs $3 trillion."
"The two proposals disagree on the terms of renewing enhanced unemployment benefits."

With #Covid19 as the ultimate catalyst, the push is on to implement the financialization of nature.

The Natural Capital Coalition is made up of approx. 300 orgs/corps while working w/ thousands. Partners include #CocaCola, #Shell, #Walmart.

Those with money will own #nature.
Those w/ $ will own #nature.

The very corporations that have brought us to the precipice of #ecological #collapse - will now be appointed as the new stewards of nature. This has been dubbed (#XR Business - Elkington/Volans) as the new biosphere economy.

#NewDealForNature
Let's take a look at how #Covid19 has been successfully leveraged (both fear & distraction) in order to aid the largest transformation of the global economic system in modern history. Assigning monetary value to nature ("natural capital") will replace #GDP.

#BeyondHeadlines: There are not-so-obvious global reasons why the #OilMarketCrash is NOT good for #India.

Heavy #QE/ currency pressure + Intense #geopolitical tension

= #India, importer & friend to all oil producers, in the crosshairs.

Thread on these impacts of #OilPrice 👇 Image
US #oilprice crashed negative for the 1st time in history. West Texas Intermediate (a US crude) traded as low as -$40.32 a barrel. So far the bulk of the losses are in US crude, -200 to -1000%! Global (Brent) crude has not gone down as much because global storage still exists.
#COVID19 #lockdown has sharply cut all travel & thus demand for oil. Excess supply of oil resulted in a shortage of #storage space, esp in North America. As they & slowly the rest of the world run out of storage, the demand for future oil contracts (futures) goes down sharply

1/ Last week I posted about automated digital contact tracing apps- lots of discussion since: @CaseyNewton @DKThomp articles, @djweitzner privacy-protective framework pact.mit.edu

now lemme talk about the other kind of contact tracing app

2/ In our report "Achieving containment" we instead ask for "tools that increase the efficiency & ease of contact tracing: enhanced directories, multichannel messaging applications, real-time translation services, symptom reporting & isolation monitoring"

healthpolicy.duke.edu/sites/default/…
3/ Over the past week, I've talked with public health workers actively engaged in contact tracing at local health departments, and smart folks thinking hard about best commercially available tools to help them (HT @dburka @ResolveTSL @bijans)

Here are their "jobs to be done"

With only a few days to go before the most comprehensive #lockdown announced by GoI comes to an end, participated in a VC with Hon PM to discuss the exit strategy to deal with fallout from #COVIDー19 Crisis & ways to kick start the #economy. Made the following suggestions.(1/n)
1. TESTING: Use Rapid test kits to segregate the people into red, yellow & green zones. Empowering employers to test their workforce, will reduce the burden on Govt and create green zones of productivity and help get economy back on track. (2/n)
2. #supplychain: They are extremely important to get the economy moving even in a partial manner. Allowing trucks to #transport goods and other #materials is vital for the #economy. The Govt might also consider ensuring Road side facilities for the drivers' #welfare. (3/n)

#Lockdown is critical for slowing the spread of #COVID19, and India has displayed firm resolve in enforcing it.

Massive labour churn; CMIE Data indicates that 120 million people have lost their jobs. We will need strong Govt action to revive the Economy.

Ok #Patriots let’s think about this..numbers for #Covid_19 are low in our #Hospitals . What would we #Quarantine and clear out hospitals for ? Especially in a #shutdown ? If all “legit” business operations will get #stimulus then what happens to the “non-legit”?...
...well they are in suspense! Running low on drugs and money. #mercy and #comfort are what would be needed to help #withdrawal victims. Right ? Why else send them to the largest #drug areas in the #USA ? Where else would the most unfortunate section of humanity...
...go? What if all drugs (illegal) run out ? Because the plan is to hold out on them. Then not stimulate anything that can’t be verified through the #Fed ? #TrustThePlan #Q has told us #WWG1WGA . #Addicts are part of us all and we know they have been sunk into darkness...

Thread: The bulk of government action over the next few months should be directed to keeping afloat the many businesses with #coronavirus-related short-term cashflow problems.

The correct lever to pull here is not "#stimulus" (i.e. sending consumers checks) but "#lending".

1/8
Governments are rightly trying to "flatten the (infection) curve".

The more they succeed in this, the more businesses are headed for trouble. Some businesses just can't be run on ecommerce & work-from-home e.g. airlines, sports teams, restaurants, shows, most manufacturing.

2/8
Governments will need to spend most economic policy efforts supporting businesses that are short-term insolvent (fewer customers, fewer employees) but medium-term viable.

The best vehicle for that is probably bank guarantees - ie what Obama did for GM, but on bigger scale.

Reading all these calls for ‘stimulus’, one wonders, if Constantine XI had had a ‘technology we call the printing press’ would his city not have fallen to the besieging Ottomans in 1453.
Shame he hadn’t heard of Gutenberg’s newly invented gizmo...
