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.

Are people in denial or is the #centralbank money flood just drowning all the signals?

#inflation
#Commodities, #freight, #carbon - and a whole lot besides - sure do cost a lot more, these days.

I have been warning for ~4 years that this was the ultimate goal.

Rule One of modern politics is that if #Technology empowers servitude, #surveillance, or social engineering those in power will seek to exploit it.

#bankofengland sees #CBDC as a tool: #socialcredit +#NetZero
You @SteveBakerHW @DesmondSwayne @DavidDavisMP @Mark_J_Harper @SirGrahamBrady @Fox_Claire are valiantly resisting vxxne passes, but are you alert to this, much more overarching, more intimately intrusive horror?
ALL to be watched, weighed, tracked, traced, rationed, restricted?
The shorthand I use is #Sinification: what #XiJinping’s #CCP did in #China yesterday, his proselytes & admirers -like #KlausSchwab- promote today, Big Tech, Pharma & Finance offer to enable tomorrow & YOUR government plans to introduce -on some pretext or other- the day after.

In preparation for my slot on #SquawkBox yesterday, I sent the guys a few slides as a synopsis of my last, detailed subscriber report for the discussion.

I called it #Pyromania. Feel free to take a look

Is it possible to overkill an act of overkill? #JeromePowell & #JanetYellen seem set to let us find out.

Not that they're alone in their folly, of course. The #ECB is outodoing them handsomely, while the #bankofengland is breaking records stretching back to its founding, 327 years ago.

.@bankofengland is right that our strong vaccine rollout is essential for our economic recovery. And we will undoubtedly have a big bounce as things reopen. But let’s remember that is from the very low position of being 10% down. #economy

This initial bounceback will be driven by those who have been lucky enough to maintain or grow their incomes during Covid as they splash out with their excess savings and make up for lost time. #bankofengland #economy #thread
But vaccines can’t reopen businesses already closed, save jobs already lost, pay off the debts of over-leveraged SMEs, or plug the huge holes in the finances of the unlucky 3.8m excluded from Covid income support for the past 10 months. @ExcludedUK #ExcludedUK #thread

A thread on why #ESG +ethical #capitalism is going to define so much of #2020

- from the #CityofLondon + your pension fund, to #COP26
- #ESG + consequential actions, not #divestment, is the weapon in combatting #climatechange 1/ ftadviser.com/pensions/2019/…
In October 2019 the #ESG = Environment,Social, and Governance regs, which passed through @HouseofCommons on a x party basis a year earlier, became law: put simply they require investment to take due account of climate risk. More explanation here ⬇️ 2/

These last 7 days have shown how we are driving forward #ESG: - meetings with 100 pension trustees + asset managers in the city of London, discussions with Mark #Carney / #BankofEngland, the @AmntOrg +@UKSIF ⏩ pressure for the UK to comply with ESG 3/ google.co.uk/amp/s/www.city…
