Many people see #crises all around us and think we're doomed: #ClimateChange, geopolitical struggles, inflation, social division and breakdown.

But could these actually be signals that a change is coming?

2 fascinating studies found 6 unexpected benefits of crises:
But first what does the word crisis mean?🤔

It comes from the Greek word krinein, which describes the absolute final moment a doctor has to decide which action to take to treat a patient. Past that point, the patient will die.

We may actually be in a “perfect crisis” for change
70% Americans believe the country is in crisis, and at risk of failing.

We know something needs to change. But how have we responded in the past and how have we come out ahead in the end? Funny you should ask....…

#Technology: "One way to reduce #transport emissions relatively quickly, and potentially globally, is to swap cars for #cycling, e-#biking and #walking – active travel, as it’s called."… #solutions
"Tackling the #climate and air #pollution #crises requires curbing all motorised #transport, particularly private cars, as quickly as possible. Focusing solely on #ElectricVehicles is slowing down the race to zero emissions."
"We also estimate that urban residents who switched from driving to cycling for just one trip per day reduced their carbon footprint by about half a tonne of CO₂ over the course of a year, and save the equivalent emissions of a one-way flight from London to New York."

🇪🇹#Ethiopia #Tigray #Crises

Six months into the conflict, Tigrays situation remains grim, with over 5 million people in desperate need of security and humanitarian aid. Over 20,000 Eritrean refugees remain unaccounted for; civilians are subjected to systematic sexual and
gender-based brutality, extrajudicial killings, forced displacement, mass expropriation of land, malnutrition, destruction of basic infrastructure and crops, and looting. There are currently over 1.7 million internally displaced people (IDPs),
but many areas are still inaccessible. Despite some initial progress on humanitarian access, due to capacity problems, bureaucratic impediments, active combat, and obstruction by Eritrean and Ethiopian armed forces, the level of assistance remains very small.

@RevistaEpoca Excelente texto! Parabéns! Traduziu toda a #angústia que as pessoas dotadas de um pingo de #bomsenso estão sentindo. Hoje, para mim, foi o pior dia. O dia seguinte àquele em que batemos o #recorde de #mortes pelo #COVID19, o dia em que nossas #esperanças de que uma #reunião
@RevistaEpoca entre os #presidentes dos três Poderes pudesse mudar radicalmente o rumo macabro hoje percorrido pelo país foram por água abaixo, no instante em q o homem eleito para #proteger os #cidadãos #brasileiros se dirigiu à nação falando novamente em um #inexistente #tratamentoprecoce,
@RevistaEpoca conforme já alertado por #cientistas e #profissionais de #saúde da linha de frente do #combate ao #coronavirus. O dia em q, não por coincidência, o (des)governo resolveu mudar o #sistema de #registro, fazendo, assim, #diminuir #artificial e #convenientemente o número de #mortos.

Rumo a 300.000 #brasileiros #mortos graças à #INSANIDADE de #Bolsonaro.
Não enxergam que não há mais tempo a perder?
Qualquer um que aparecer ao lado desse #lunático será visto como #cúmplice
@o_antagonista @ArthurLira_ @rpsenador @camaradeputados @SenadoFederal @STF_oficial @MPF_PGR dessas milhares de #mortes que, em grande parte, poderiam ter sido evitadas.
É #imprescindível a #adoção de #medidas de #restrição de #circulação de #pessoas, para #diminuir a #transmissão do #coronavirus e #impedir o que estamos vendo se aproximar cada vez mais:
@o_antagonista @ArthurLira_ @rpsenador @camaradeputados @SenadoFederal @STF_oficial @MPF_PGR O dia em que todos os #hospitais do país fecharão as portas por #falta de #vagas.
A permanência de @jairbolsonaro na #presidência é um evidente #obstáculo à tomada das #providências #indispensáveis para que não haja o #colapso #total da #saúde no #Brasil.

#Lebanon #Beirut #BeirutExplosion #crises

In response to the blast that destroyed Lebanon's grain silos, Iraq donated thousands of tons of flour to the Lebanese government. The flour was poorly and unhygienically stored under stadium bleachers.
Lebanon is in the midst of the worst economic crisis and was recently at risk of removal of subsidy on flour. No official response has been issued as of the time of writing, explaining that remarkable negligence. ImageImageImage
The only response came from Nehme, who responded to the allegations against him stating that the flour was placed there on a "temporary basis" until being distributed by the Lebanese army, and that it was stored with "preventive measures " to preserve it.

What are the implications of excess global financial market volatility on economic growth? Are there threshold effects in the relationship between growth & excess global volatility for individual countries? How should we model the nonlinear effects in a multi-country setting? 1/n

@INETeconomics By a chance, the article saying #MMT "theorists ignore how their policies could hurt developing countries" places #Ukraine currency #hryvnia (notes of 20 hryvnia's) as its cover picture.

@INETeconomics Btw, another time when #MMT-related literature opted by a mere chance to associate itself with #Ukraine's currency was the book 'Can "It" Happen Again?' written by Hyman Minsky (2nd ed published in 2016).

This time there is a jar of coins 5 kopecks each (5 #копійок).

@INETeconomics I am #Ukrainian, having a 22-year experience in the Ukraine's financial sector (1995-2017) and working full-day jobs first as bank officer doing debts/credits and then as research economist. I worked in the banking sector as well as in the non-banking financial sector.
