A mini-course

Finance does not do enough to challenge the Overhead expenses.

Why? Because we think that we can't do much about it... I also thought that there was no possibility to improve overhead costs. Image

1/ Eurolectric, the Association of European incumbent energy firms, provides a distorted description of the Spanish proposal to reform electricity markets. Difficult to discuss false claims. They must have read another document…
2/ One would expect incumbents to reject a proposal that weakens their market power to achieve competitive electricity prices for consumers. Still, corporate interests should be defended with sound arguments, not distortions. The much-needed debate is not possible otherwise.

The #deficit #myth #deficitmyth by @StephanieKelton #MMT modern monetary theory
Myth N. 1: The #state should budget like a #household
#RealityCheck : unlike a household, a #SovereignNation, which owns its national #centralbank, issues the #currency it spends
Myth N. 2: #deficit is evidence of #overspending
#RealityCheck: look to #inflation for evidence of over spending
The purpose of #taxes is not to pay for #government expenditures but to help rebalancing the #wealth distribution #MMT

1/5 HUANG Yiping, Chairman of CF40 Academic Committee and Vice-chairman of NSD at Peking University, said the RMB XR has been increasingly flexible, and XR level is grounded in fundamentals. it is suspicious to label China as a #currency #manipulator.… Image
2/5 Huang said, we must realize there is an outdated concept of #XR, which I think is #Trump’s understanding - #currency #depreciation is good for #economy, as a weaker currency is conducive to #export #competitiveness. In fact, this notion is no longer the case in nowadays.
3/5 As with increasing levels of capital account liberalization among countries, XR impacts on economy through financial channels, depreciation anticipation would lead to further #depreciation, and thus facilitating capital outflow, which would adversely impact on the economy.

What lessons can be drawn from the experiments on #AutonomousVehicles in #France?
Thread ⬇️⬇️⬇️ Image
1⃣ The institutional debate on autonomous #mobility focuses on the issues of #safety and industrial #competitiveness, to the detriment of other strategic issues related to mobility.
2⃣ However, the institutionalisation of experimental consortia organised around local authorities shows the willingness to move the cursor towards #mobility needs. Local authorities have a key role to play in linking #AutonomousVehicles and territorial mobility issues.
