Is India's Consumption is Booming or Bombing ? keep updating the thread with Nuggets ...
Kantar's FMCG Pulse report .. April-Aug 2022.
Average MONTHLY sales of FMCG packs were 19.2 bn, or 62 packs/household, from Apr-Aug 2022
vs PRE-COVID: Average MONTHLY sales of FMCG packs 15 billion or 51 packs/household => 20% Increase in VOLUME

BUT #DEVIL lies in the #detail
packs bought pre-pandemic weighed 438 grams on average, the size has shrunk to just 309 grams now amid soaring inflation .... thats a 30% reduction in Volume/Pack...

In Other Words, CONSUMPTION per household in FMCG is Down 15% .... Cant recall such a BAD SCENARIO in 35 yrs..

How #Bitcoin mining can hasten the transition to renewable energy and a carbon neutral economy.

A #thread 🧵
As a student of #economics we are taught many top-down #policies to address the #climate crisis. Things like cap-n-trade, carbon taxes and renewable subsidies are touted as effective means to reduce #GHG emissions. The reality? Most of these have failed to adequately do so.
One way to reach a carbon neutral #economy is to electrify everything we can and source it from sustainable energy. Currently our global electrical capacity simply is not enough to power the world sustainably and we need to vastly expand it to meet future #energy demands.

"Argument-Making in the Wild"

Today's SFI Seminar by Simon DeDeo (@LaboratoryMinds), streaming now. Follow our thread for pull quotes and slides:

First, let's divide human history into three eras, or regimes of #knowledge #production and #consumption:

• #premodern/#archaic
• #modern + #postmodern
• the #egregore (online content sharing)

• The premodern era is defined by caloric restriction.
• The modern era is characterized by a small number of sellers of #information vs. a large number of consumers (see also #HerbertSimon's remarks on the "poverty of #attention")

"#USA, #Japan, #Germany, #France, the #UK, and Italy, and several developing countries, such as #China and #India, have obtained net domestic forest gains. The net forest gains made in these countries were partially offset by importing embodied deforestation from elsewhere"
"Our analysis addresses two main questions: (i) Which #deforestation hotspots are driven by which consumer countries? and (ii) Which forest ecosystems, tropical rain forests or other forest types are the top targets of global supply chains?"

"Just before the pandemic, in 2019, American non-financial corporations made about a trillion dollars a year in profit, give or take. This amount had remained constant since 2012. But in 2021, these same firms made about $1.73 trillion a year. ...

1. Suppose an alien spaceship will land on earth next week.

After many light-years of travel through space, some friendly little green creatures decide to get out and stretch their legs on our planet.

What would they report home?

2. I guess their first description would be ecstatic.

Hidden in the fast, cold, and dark universe, they discovered a blue planet that brims with an incredible diversity of life, aided by ideal living conditions.

3. But:

Since the dawn of civilization, humanity has lost 83% of all wild mammals and half of all plants.

Of all the mammals on earth, 96% are livestock and humans, while only 4% are wild mammals.

Sudden turns in macroeconomic policies before Q3, 2021 would be inadvisable, says Zhu He, CF40 Research Fellow. It’s not yet time for macroeconomic policies to change direction, not to mention the speed of the turn, he says. 1/8

Recent data suggest a slowdown in China’s recovery, with the output gap closing at a slower pace. It remains uncertain whether #export and real estate #investment can sustain momentum in the next two quarters. 2/8
Any weakening of domestic #consumption or manufacturing investment before they return to normal levels would be a big drag on aggregate #demand and economic recovery. 3/8

Household consumption in #China remains significantly lower than the pre-Covid level, with great potential for recovery. As Covid’s impact lingers, service consumption growth in China remains significantly lower than its pre-pandemic levels. 2/6
Household savings maintain steady growth, with newly-added household deposits coming in at RMB 6.68 trillion in 2021Q1. Going forward, as the temperature rises and the virus is further contained, service consumption will recover further, driving rebound in general consumption.3/6

1/ In a recent series of papers, I argue that many important behaviors are shaped by neglect of selection bias in social observation.

HT to @Ben_Golub for a fascinating thread about effects of neglect of selection bias.
2/ In a “call to arms” paper, I argue that neglect of selection bias in social observation is one of the key sources of bias in the transmission of ideas and behaviors.
3/ And that in turn, bias in the social transmission of ideas and behaviors is a key intellectual building block for social economics.

China will adhere to the supply-side structural reform while paying attention to #demand management, addressing the obstacles to economic circulation and improving weak links.
What are and how to address the major obstacles to the management of domestic demand? How should China step up policy efforts to further boost #consumption?
According to CF40 Member Wu Ge, the proposal to expand domestic demand through demand management and stimulating domestic circulation came at the right time given the plunge in consumption due to the pandemic. The major obstacle to demand management lies in the consumer sector.

Lately, I have been very disturbed with the whole #climatecrisis. Every day some new naturally unnatural calamity looms over our head.
The ice caps are turning in cold rocks and I end up in a rabbit hole feeling helpless.
1/n
It just sucks to imagine a #future where the only way people can enjoy nature as you and I did via #hiking etc is to read blogs and watch videos.
That sucks on so many levels.
2/n
And when I think about the reasons for this situation. I can't seem to go any further but to pin it on #consumption.
Not just fashion or lifestyle consumption. But any damn product.
From the smallest sewing pin to the giant #spaceships.

'Pulling #consumption forward' is an unhelpful euphemism for 'engaging in #capital consumption': more graphically, 'writing cheques the people can't cash'.
Self-sustaining #growth requires coherence between consumption & production not just today, but over time.
1/x #centralbanks
That latter is difficult enough to achieve without #centralbankers & policy-makers in general trying to impose their own vision of the balance (one always narrowly biased to the present) on a system composed of billions of interacting needs & preferences.
2/x
#bankofenfgland
The unavoidable (Rumsfeldian) uncertainty -as well as the calculable risks- is made much greater when every fluctuation today -itself a direct result of IN-coherence, largely inflicted from above- is greeted with yet another blunt-force trauma assault on the capital structure
