Oct 12 2022: "Deep-sea miner stock jumps after first seafloor collection since 1970s"

The "#greatreset" (#Commonwealth w/ WEF as secretariat) includes deep sea #mining. The annihilation of #oceans carried out under guise of sustainability.

#UN #SDGs…
"The fields in the CCZ represent the largest known, undeveloped #nickel resource on the planet & is estimated to contain over 3 times the amount of #cobalt, almost 2 x the amount of nickel & as much #manganese as all global land-based reserves, combined."

#Privatization of the #oceans will allow for ocean exploration & deep sea #mining - both essential for the fourth industrial revolution infrastructure desired by the ruling class technocrats. #4IR #EVs #Salesforce

@MikaLintila Ns. 'hallitus', #WEF-#GreatReset -kätyrit #MikaLintilä ja #Caruna-#PekkaHaavisto @pekkahaavisto ovat omatoimisesti katkaisseet Venäjän sähkön ja kaasun, aiheuttaen jälleen, kuten ns. '#pandemia'ssakin, mittaamatonta vahinkoa suomalaisille

1. #MaxHastings needs to bone up before sketchily declaiming ‘#histrionics in the #West’ about #ChineseBeltandRoad #lending, @thetimes 30 July 22, p 33. Becoming, like that #LeCarré, another raging '#nationaltreasure' discharging disaffected drivel.
2. Surmises of #moralequivalence between #Chinese and #Western rapacity by #MaxHastings are tenuous. #Pakistanieconomists, long critical of the #BRI, would remind him how 27% of #Islamabad’s #externaldebt, $90bn as of April 2021, is now owed to #Beijing.
3. #Pakistan, since 1988, has been bailed out 12 times and in talks for a thirteenth reprieve as it requires at least $41bn to sustain #foreignexchangereserves. #IMF suspicion of #dodgyChinese #powercompanies borne out in recent #reports.

Don't blame #Putin or #Covid for your sky-high grocery bill. Blame the elites who collude with the biggest scam in history, involving #CentralBanks and their friends in finance, under the cover of the pandemic
A thread on #QuantitativeSleazing ...… Image
Since the start of the pandemic in March 2020, #CentralBanks in the West began pouring trillions into the coffers of large corporations, making their #stockmarket friends rich while making us poorer through high #inflation

#CentralBanks should not favour one business over another by giving them easy loans. Helping large & dirty corporations outcompete smaller firms is anti-business, anti-markets, anti-democratic & anti-sustainability. Such #QuantitativeSleazing makes mockery of green promises Image

A Thread on Income Tax and Middle Class

1. #UnionBudget2022 placed. Apart from several excellent proposals and measures suggested in order to achieve sustainable growth of National economy, government suggested no change in the existing income tax rates and exemptions. This is
2. exactly where d typical middle class, generally unaware of the intricate details of economics, remain interested. This is exactly the issue which concerns them the most and this is what they treat as yardstick to measure the extent of concern the government shows towards them.
3. Not unlike with any other previous governments of independent India,this time too they feel deprived. To understand the matter a little more precisely and to judge the extent of justification behind this feeling of the middle class, let us penetrate a little further.

@MorningBrew @haydenfield
$540 billion in remittances flowed to low- and middle-income countries in 2020, per the #WorldBank

Most #remittance payments are made via wire transfer or bank transfer

Watch how #CBDCs could change this
Some of the biggest players in the money transfer space, like #WesternUnion and #MoneyGram, are beginning to team up with #crypto firms

With #crypto, you’re using a bank; with traditional, you're using an exchange/or holding company

We're seein a crazy clubbin nightlife on social media.
How r people goin out & spendin given the disastrous Lebanese situation?" @TheRealTahinis
Ali asked me this Q yesterday on Clubhouse, and I answered briefly:
⫸Thread⫷ Image
- Lebanon's post-war era (1990-Present) vs. the three main sectors of the economy (Agriculture, Manufacturing & Services) that haven't been built neither for self-sufficiency nor for export.
- How lively Lebanese are by nature.
- How luxurious cars in Leb are bought on credit.
- How Lebanese like to enjoy life at the expense of being realistic sometimes.
- How most Lebanese families in Lebanon have family members that are abroad working as expats worldwide. These Lebanese expats do send hard currencies to their families.
