As we’ve argued many times in the past, the #CashFlows generated by today’s #economy are accruing to fewer and fewer corporate players, which is why it’s not surprising that the top 5 companies in the $SPX by market cap comprise nearly 21% of the index total.
And contrary to the many commentaries speculating on the hypothetical differences between pre- and post- #Covid #economies, we’re fairly certain that this is a trend that’s likely to accelerate. Especially when the @Nasdaq just added the equivalent of two Russell 2000s this year!
Revenues, cash flows and ultimately #market #capital flows are in motion at an astounding speed, as #investors attempt to distinguish between winners/losers in sectors, industries and individual companies: that amazing structural evolution is key to #investment success today.

Another canard currently doing the rounds is this whole, "Yields are low ergo public debt is no burden - and yields must STAY low or it WOULD quickly become one, far too heavy to bear" schtick.

#UST #Treasury #Fed #deficit 1/x
Clearly no-one understands the difference between real costs and virtual, financial ones.

The State's gross mishandling of the #coronavirus crisis has destroyed or impaired tremendous amounts of productive #capital - a loss which should neither be understated nor camouflaged 2/x
The fact that the gazillion new IOUs #UST has issued as a partial (and temporary) recompense for this will come with artificially low interest rates is absolutely NO cause for cheer: in fact, quite the converse. 3/x

It is a desperate pitched #battle that #humanity is waging to stop the deadly advance of the #coronavirus.

Since its appearance in #Wuhan #China three months ago, the pandemic has infected one million people and killed 50,000, on a planet inhabited by 6 billion human beings.
Much of the world's population today is #besieged in cities, entrenched in their homes, as an extreme measure to escape the #plague & save lives.

We’re living, without a doubt, a time of tension & psychological crisis, while science, in a fight against the clock, is looking in
medicine for a solution to the challenges of the #pandemic.

The coronavirus is telling the world, in all shades, that #life is more important than #capital, because without life there is no factory.

Salvation is in human #solidarity and not in the perversity of Donald #Trump,

Not to root for state or CB intervention, with #coronavirus, its inevitability must be faced. So how to make it the least damaging and not allow it to become entrenched in the system and lead to another decade of distortion & waste like post-#GFC? 1/x
Problem is to try to avoid the failure of otw viable firms because of disruptions due to the global health emergency - & also to spare their employees from ruin. Flooding money into financial markets is NOT the answer, #JayPowell! Blind fiscal expansion, neither, #DonaldTrump 2/x
Here's the kernel of an idea. Finmarkets are desperate for 'safe assets'. nominal yields are trifling; real ones negative. S-o-o, launch a special series of #Treasury bonds to sate the market's hunger & halt the potentially disastrous collapse in yields. 3/x

If you've been following #Global #Capital #Markets, you'll have noted a significant rebound in some of the world's key stock market indices. This follows a "correction" in the wake of #COVID19. The rebound largely comes on the back of #CentralBank commitment to "lower for longer"
While #CentralBank commitment to "lower for longer" might help rally markets today, it is still imperative for us to consider the #Global #MonetaryPolicy #Toolbox and if policy makers will have enough space to "keep cutting" or providing "stimulus" moving forward.
Below are #CentralBank meeting dates for March 1st to 7th 2020. From this list, Banks that usually "move the needle" as it where, are Bank of #Australia & the Bank of #Canada. As it so happens, Bank of Australia cut policy rate by 25bps to 0.5% citing #COVID19 as downside risk.

Retour sur le Capital d'hier, enfin sur le reportage sur le nucléaire… J'étais tendre à la fin du reportage, parce que je m'étais préparé au pire et le pire, on y a échappé. #semainegreen #capital #nucléaire @CapitalM6 @SandrineANDREI
Déjà, si j'ai laissé de vos questions ou remarques sans réponse, je demande votre indulgence : réessayez !

Pour citer @DeLaval53, « Le problème c'est qu'on est tellement habitué aux émissions calamiteuses que lorsque ce n'est pas totalement outrancier on trouve ça acceptable ». Et en y réfléchissant bien, peut-on dire que c'était acceptable hier ?

C'est complètement gratuit le « peu enclin à la communication », non ?

C'est promis, ce soir, je livetweete l'émission, on va essayer de fact-checker à aussi grande cadence que possible sans trop de sel.

Moi je serai notamment là pour vous parler déchets et cycle du combustible. Suivez @frdossant pour les aspects économiques et financiers qui seront probablement au cœur de l'émission. @AStrochnis qui parlera aussi de déchets et si besoin de démantèlement et ses coûts.
Et si des fois ça parle sûreté des réacteurs, notre référence sera probablement @buchebuche561.

D'autres personnes sur le front ? @Kako_line, @synfission, vous serez devant l'émission ?

This is going to be a very important thread.

#WorldEconomicForum
#FourthIndustrialRevolution
#GretaThunberg
#SavingCapitalism with
#StakeholderCapitalism
#RedefiningCapitalism
#NewDealForNature

Let's start here, with this misleading article shared by the GT account.
To start. From the article:

"The theme of this year’s gathering in #Davos is “#stakeholders for a cohesive and sustainable world”. According to the forum’s website, leaders will meet to discuss ideas and improve our global progress on climate change."

theguardian.com/commentisfree/…
What is not shared is the primary focus:

"Focus of the meeting will be on renewing the concept of stakeholder #capitalism to overcome income inequality, societal division and the #climate crisis."

This #WEF release is new (Jan 14 2020) - but the focus & theme is not.

#Capital Maintenant que je suis à peu près calmée, on va aborder sereinement le contenu du reportage de ce soir car il y a un véritable problème et il n'est pas petit :
voir nos institutions démocratiques et représentatives sous l'angle économique.
#Capital Oui, la démocratie et son exercice, ça coûte des sous. Un mandat électoral, qu'il soit parlementaire ou exécutif, ça demande de l'énergie, de la dévotion et dans certains cas, une certaine dose de masochisme.
#Capital Pour cela, on doit indemniser les élus, si possible correctement, pour éviter la corruption. Leur donner les moyens de travailler. Oui, les parlementaires, députés & sénateurs ont un beau cadre de travail, personne ne le nie, même pas eux.

#Options vs #Futures

Although both are #derivatives, Futures and Options are entirely different in terms of their potential #risk and #return , #leverage and how they work.

How different are futures and options?
#Rights vs #Obligations

In #Futures Trading, both the buyer & the seller are #obligated to settle the contracts on or before expiry ie cover shorts or longs or rollover to next contract, regardless of how the underlying asset price moves.
With #Options the buyer has the #Right, but not the #Obligation, to buy (call option) or sell (put option) on underlying asset. The option seller is #passive and must comply with whatever the option buyer does.

Just like clockwork. World Economic Forum - the movie.

On October 28, 2019, the documentary The Forum, opened the 62nd edition of German documentary festival (DOK Leipzig).

Because "to change everything, we need everyone".

Director Marcus Vetter: "Eventually we have to overcome some of our preconceptions. The elite may not appear as evil as we think they are. There are good and bad people..."
con't: "The film is asking the question, 'Is there not maybe still a middle way, one in which everyone comes together instead of separating from one another?'"

Exactly. Some have understood, and taken advantage of this, for millennia. Think about it folks. Then go study.

Ever hear the term "court J3w"? Not *just* bankers. jewishencyclopedia.com/articles/4709-…
"Note that ‘Fool’ is derived from ‘follis’, a wind-bag*. Even etymology gives the attribution to Air. Also, to puff out the cheeks is a gesture implying _readiness to create_, in the sign-language of Naples."

"This card is attributed to the letter Aleph, which means an Ox, but by its shape the Hebrew letter (so it is said) represents a ploughshare; thus the significance is primarily #Phallic. It is the first of the three Mother letters, Aleph, Mem, and Shin..."

»#YuriBezmenov may well go down in history as a #saint by the #survivors of the generations to come.

His statements about the global “#communist agenda” offers an opportunity for students of #history, #philosophy and #economics - world wide - to take note of #reality and to

.. reflect on the identity of their intellectual enemy, the dynamics of #capitalism in economics, and the role of #violence in politics.

Firstly, what is the “western identity”? From my understanding .. the #western identity has been shaped primarily by what it has resisted:

namely monarchic #despotism, authoritative #collectivism, and the infringement on the sovereignty of the #individual. You can even say that, to an extent, #Christianity itself followed from an already existing identity (i.e. the #Socratic divination of the individual).

It's all @kelvy_bird 's fault, haha ! Her book made me try to map a four-fold unified evolutionary scene: the #evolution of Life, means, ends & the #sustainability discipline/#metrics. Yes, I know it needs to be improved. #generativescribing in Plato's cave
@kelvy_bird LEFT: Let me explain what came to my mind, while trying to draw this . The left side obviously is about #Spirit, #God or the #Creator and it was @TimFreke who made me aware that we are now entering a next evolutionary stage: the development & story of #soul.
@kelvy_bird @TimFreke UPPER: For me it's a #Maturity Model of #Stewardship for our vital #capital resources. With our egoistic human nature, we depleted (as usual) our capital resources. #Sustainability marked the barrier in context & #Regeneration is all about (re)paying our debt

To mark the occasion of #LaborDay2019, I will transcribe an interesting, 91-year old #German text on #Marxism that has never entered the #internet before this post of mine. (I tried quite a lot to find the text, to no avail.) I will manually transcribe it, then translate it.
..
..I won't give the source, and also won't say WHY I don't give the source.

I repeat that it is a literal quote (from a 1928 publication), probably published during the #WeimarRepublic:

"#Marximus .. [ist] .. staats-, gesellschaft- und kulturzerstörend .. gegen jeden Staat,..
..jede Gesellschaft, jede Kultur ... ist #Marxismus ein #Aufruhr der #Eigensucht
gegen das #Gemeinwohl, also das Gegenteil jedes wahren #Sozialismus, denn Sozialismus muss stets das Wohl des Ganzen dem des Teiles voranstellen ... seine „Vorfurcht“ [sic; see dictionary entry

Over the #forecast period we expect best growth performance in #EUCEE and #WesternBalkans, although both will slow by 2020. Outlook for #CIS & #Ukraine weaker. 3/13

DO YOU KNOW THESE FORMS OF CAPITAL?
SOCIAL CAPITAL
Influence and connections are social capital. A person or entity who has ‘good social capital’ can ask favors, influence decisions, and communicate efficiently.
Social capital is of primary importance in politics, business, and community organizing
FINANCIAL CAPITAL
Financial capital: Money, currencies, securities and other instruments of the global financial system. It is our primary tool for exchanging goods services with other humans
INTELLECTUAL CAPITAL
Intellectual capital is best described as a ‘knowledge’ asset. The majority of the current global education system is focused on imparting intellectual capital — whether or not it is the most useful form of capital for creating resilient and thriving

CAPITAL OR NOT.

For so many Startups, the excuse for not actually starting a business or executing an idea is the capital to start with.

Some have had to quit an idea to pursue the needed cash but never came back to the idea. Only a few young minds could manage through.
2/4
Few sources below could help with that needed fund:
*Friends
*Family members
*Angel Investors
*Venture Capitalists
*Banks
*NGOs
3/4
The list above is actually supposed to help out with the needed resources but if none works out, use what you have to get what is needed not what is desired, but remember to always be godly.

1 / DEPLORABLE WORLD
A story written with no plan or script through nano-chapters using the prompts from #vss365 #AmWriting #SunScribbles #SunWIP #SciFi #Satsplat #BadWordSat
#Swim steady and firm”, 15 yr old David told the others. They had been prepared. Their go-bags had the clothes approved by Deplorables and they had a small list of safe-houses in the mainland. All the adults in the island died do make their escape possible. #vss365 #AmWriting
In the mainland, it was safer to marry the kids to each other. They would live with their assigned parents according to the fake identity genealogy. What used to be known as the #cycle of abuse had been normalized. They had to blend in and hide in plain sight. #vss365 #AmWriting

The #legitimacy of any form of #government is not and cannot be based upon #consent, but upon how well it protects the rights of those who refuse to consent.
When the bullshit is stripped away, #Socialism is #theft, and can never be a moral form of political economy, because it cannot protect the rights of those who refuse to consent to the theft of their earned wealth. Those who do consent are not prevented under any other system…
from engaging in #voluntary #cooperative #ownership of #capital. Therefore, #Socialism is not defined by voluntary participation, but by #coercion, or #theft, a universal #moral harm. #Intent is not #magic. Good intent and good works do not and cannot excuse the theft.
