Can computational methods assess the #sentiment of complex texts? In an article with my fabulous colleagues from the @WZB_Berlin, @unipotsdam @LMU_Muenchen @JungeAkademie, we answer this question by applying #dictionary and #scaling methods on a sample of #literature reviews🧵
The article is also a practical #guide to help researchers select an appropriate #method and degree of preprocessing for their own data. Our #corpus consisted of 6.041 summaries of reviews of contemporary German #literature acquired from @perlentaucher00 (2/9)
The linguistic #complexity of #literature reviews differ from other texts with regard to their #language-- ambiguity, irony, metaphors, etc.-- are comparatively difficult to capture with #computational approaches. So how did our different methods fare? (3/9)

A little birdy told me that IOTA's collab with Trademark East Africa is one of the disruptive projects where a feeless #DLT like #IOTA can have a massive impact

Here's what the Dep Commissioner for Customs of the Kenya Revenue Authority thinks about that

Paraphrasing: ... data can not be manipulated, which creates a lot of trust. Previously paper-based, data can now be verified in a timely manner, which leads to cargo being able to be cleared before arrival, which reduces #cost for the government as well as businesses
... overall, businesses can better plan ahead and overall cargo throughput increases, which culminates into #revenue #growth for the government and also less trade related crime

The @NFIB #survey doesn't get much #media attention, but it should. Small businesses make up almost 70% of #employment and their #confidence tells us much about the #economy and #smallcap stocks.
realinvestmentadvice.com/nfib-survey-se…
In December, the #NFIB survey declined to 95.9 from a peak of 108.8. Notably, many suggest the drop was “#politically driven” by #conservative owners. While there was indeed a drop following the election, the decline continues what started in 2018.

Hopes for a #strong #economic recovery may be premature. While #stimulus will give a short-term lift to the economy, once it is spent, growth fades. Businesses won't #invest into artificial supports.

.#ConsumerPriceIndex data for the month of August revealed further recovery - like a lot of #macro data in recent months: core #CPI (excluding volatile food and #energy components) came in at 0.4% month-over-month and 1.7% year-over-year.
Overall, we think 2020’s broadly #deflationary influences may well lead to somewhat higher rates of #inflation by mid-2021, yet importantly, we do not expect this to reach excessive levels.
Those fearing increasingly greater risks of high #inflation stemming from #crisis rescue measures are misguided, in our view, and underestimate the continued secular headwinds to excessive #price increases…

🔹score (I create a hashtag of the product of p and i, eg #readscore9)

4. Read now, assign to future self (page ref a date), or archive

2/
5. Reading
🔹Create the top level structure for nested blocks
🔹Skim and write questions
🔹Find the answers
🔹Copy important sections and tag

Betsy Devos: "The rule should be that kids go back to school this fall." Here comes a thread on schools, the pandemic, and taking action. @betsydevosed
Devos and others in the WH circle say -- quite simply -- children should be going (via mass transport) to local full-time, in-person instruction this fall. businessinsider.com/devos-the-rule…
The immediate response so this should be "Yes, and..." BTW, the response so all these pronouncement-style non-actionable platitudes is almost _always_ "Yes, and..." Don't get fooled into playing the _opposition_. That's a losing gambit.

All categories of #mutualfunds (including ETFs) would be covered under #stampduty charges for units issued in demat & non-demat form. It will cover equity, derivatives & currency trades. Stamp Duty = Direct Tax levied by the govt. u/s 3 of Indian Stamp Act, 1899. @AmarUjalaNews
#StampDuty charges:

Equity (delivery) - 0.015% or ₹1,500 per crs on buy-side

#Equity (intra-day) - 0.003% or ₹300 per crs

#Futures (equity & #commodity) - 0.002% or ₹200 per crs

#Options (equity & commodity) - 0.003% or ₹300 per crs

#Currency - 0.001% or ₹10 per crs
- The #stampduty will also be applicable on #AlternativeInvestmentFunds (AIFs)

- Impact is more on the short term #investments by the #investors

- No stamp duty on #redemption of #mutualfund units.

- Impact at #portfolio level too i.e when fund manager executes transaction.

So, @RWE is trying to gain public support for its #LNG terminals in Germany by leading us to believe there is a #hydrogen future. Let us unpack this a little (THREAD):

germanlng.com/wp-content/upl…

@peteraltmaier @SvenjaSchulze68 @GheorghiuAndy @ConstZerger
1/ The #LNG infrastructure planned is not ready for H2. @TUHamburg explains that you need a temperature of <-250C for liquified H2, vs <-100C for liquified gas, we are yet to see plans that show the design can cope. Well explained here in @TspBackgroundEK background.tagesspiegel.de/energie-klima/…
2/ Shipping H2 is something that people working in the #maritime industry are wary of. It is highly flammable and the safety risks associated would drive up insurance premia. Given low energy density, you'd need many more loads for same value --> expensive.

When #stagnation and #inflation occur at the same time, the determination of #monetarypolicy is usually more difficult.
At this point, the inter-bank market #interestrate tends to be volatile in the short term, and its final trend still depends on the change of aggregate #demand after the #cost shock recedes.
Particularly, empirical research shows that #housing #price, rather than #exchangerate, has restricted the marginal adjustments of #monetary #policies in #China to a certain extent.

By Wu Ge:

In the past, the trend of aggregate #demand has basically determined the trend of #prices in #China. However, the current price hikes are mainly due to #cost shocks rather than aggregate #demand expansion.
Although the cost shock of this round of #swinefever isn’t minor, the international #oilprice is still moderate and its year-on-year growth rate continues to be negative.
This is different from the past price rise, when the #CPI rose above 3% while pork price and oil price both increased significantly. This may indicate that, overall, prices will not rise by too much.
