C'mere #GenZ I be needing you to teach me some #21stCentury colloquial slang language so I can impress my grandsons. The other day my 16 year old complained that his parents were too strict and I said, "It do be like that sometimes, Homie." He said, "You speak my language? Cool!" Image
#DoBeDoBeDo two hundred thousand words in the English language, and more every day, we'll never live long enough to learn them all!
I might use some of this new lingo in tweets too, but only if I'm talking to #GenZ because others may not understand the references. I do want to talk to #GenZ because they are the ones who saved us from a second term for #TheHateYam & they must do it again. We must #PassTheTorch

This isn't an easy topic to address but I'll do my best to provide my thoughts via a simple generic🧵

#RealEstate isn't linear. It is multifactorial:

1) Country
2) Time period
3) Information asymmetry
4) Opportunity cost
5) Personality
6) Job security

etc

🧵👇
2/ There is no guarantee for any gains in any investment vehicle. No guarantee in #RealEstate, #bitcoin, #Equities etc

As cliche as it sounds, the only constant is: Change.

History only provides a clue.

Simply put, yields are not guaranteed.

Back to factors 1 to 6
3/ #RealEstate differs from country to country.

In a jurisdiction where there are high capital gains tax or when the cost of borrowing is high, owning/investing in property might not make much sense.

In #Singapore, capital gains tax has been abolished

[THREAD] Retour sur l'affront aux #boomers de @JulienBayou qui, outre de montrer combien #EELV aime afficher sa détestation d'une part croissante du peuple, représente une faute électorale surréaliste (que l'on va analyser à l'échelle nationale et non régionale). 1/12
La philosophe, @ClaireMLejeune, a beau ramer en expliquant que #Boomer "renvoie à une catégorie politique", suivant le concept #woke de redéfinition des mots en fonction des besoins, les boomers sont les gens nés entre 1943 et 1960, voire 1966. 2/12

Ayant été moi-même traité de boomer, bien que plus jeune, on comprend bien que, par extension, les #boomers ne sont pas une "catégorie politique", ni les vrais baby boomers, mais les + de 55 ans. 3/12

Grace à certains EELV, les #boomers ne sont aps écolos. Ils ont juste écrit les plus grands hymnes "verts" de l'histoire. Thread !
On commence par le plus grand hymne, le plus célèbre, le plus puissant. The Clash, London Calling
Bien sûr, l'évidence même nous renvoie à Lennon et son Instant Karma
Alors bien sûr, Midnight Oil, Beds are burning

Police claim “unlawful assembly” after killing 20 year old young black man, with his mom on the phone and his girlfriend beside him as they drove to visit his older brother and see his new home. Here is the PDF from the @aclu_mn re: protests. #BlackLivesMatter
Minneapolis police knew, or should have known, the killing of a young black man stopped in his vehicle, will result in protests. The police should have been prepared for protests and de-escalated it. Journalists have been reporting that police officers are quitting the “force”
because of fear of danger after the George Floyd trial outcome. Therefore, they knew of the repercussions of killing, wrongfully, a young black man. #EnoughIsEnough #StopSystemicRacism

(1/THREAD) Sentiment: One might think, with the #market erasing all its losses, that sentiment would have gotten somewhat lopsided, but it hasn’t. Here, flows into equity funds & ETFs & money market funds. #equities #SPX
2/ The rush into #cash has barely been undone, while #investors aren’t exactly rushing into #equities. While cash sitting in money market funds has dropped slightly from nearly $5 trillion to about $4.55 trillion, it has fallen from 17% to 13% as a percent of equity market cap.
3/ Looking at the percent of equity market capitalization is probably a better way to slice the data as a proxy for sentiment and it has matched almost perfectly the spread on high-yield corporate #bonds. The rest of the sentiment picture is mixed too.

[THREAD] Soybean futures, Solidere shares and the #FourthTurning: Lebanon’s crisis from a historical and demographic perspective
1. In #Lebanon these days, it’s easy to get lost in the minutae of daily developments, from what a minister said to eurobond this and capital control that.
2. These events are at the core of people’s daily lives, but how do they fit within the bigger picture, in the larger story being written?

On defining #creativity @rexjung :

Distinct from #intelligence – a superhighway; #creativity as a slow meandering process down dirt road / side road

Must be both #novel and @useful – beyond simple #utility – something #new within a social context. Unexpected links ✨🤓✨

Scapegoating #Brexit

The blaming the elderly thing is a bit off or at the least, is over-simplistic. Three generations are crammed into “65+”; namely #Boomers (54-71 in 2016), #SilentGen (71-91) and GG (92-106) At this point we all know that 65+ voted to Leave 64:36. 1/
Boomers made up 6 years worth of the 65+ in 2016. Not much, right? Well, in 2016 “65+” made up 18% of the pop and those bt 65-71 work out at about 7.4% of it. SG & GG make up another 10.7%, heavily weighted to the younger end (Pop >85 in 2016 was 2.6%). 2/
So *of that voting cohort*, those six years of Boomers make up ~41% of “65+”. Following cohort as given in breakdowns is 50-64yr olds. Bar ~4 years, that is entirely Boomer gen, and voted to Leave 60:40. 3/

To move rightward, is about the desire to conserve, hence #conservative. In order to want to conserve, you have to have something you want to conserve. If all you have is debt and more #debt, what the heck do you have to conserve? @sapinker
The progression to more right with age is a historically temporary #American phenomenon born out of the fact that #boomers acquired increasing affluence because of the society in which they found themselves as a result of the #NewDeal & #progressive policies which they inherited
Having been born on third base and believing they had hit a triple, as a generation, they decided to slow this #wealth distribution thing down a little and now we find ourselves where we find ourselves. The move rightwards requires something to conserve.
