Super excited to see our paper on #Covid19 #Fiscal Support and its Effectiveness, with Alexander Chudik @DallasFed & @mraissi80 @IMFNews, out in Economics Letters. You can read it (free access) from here: authors.elsevier.com/c/1dDlMbZedt0om #TGVAR 1/n Image
With new variants/waves & reimposition of restrictions in some regions, governments around the world are calling for a careful assessment of the effectiveness of the adopted #Covid19 #fiscal measures before they embark on further easing or tailoring of measures 2/n
The #Covid19 pandemic led to a sharp tightening of global #financial conditions at the acute phase of the crisis and has inflicted large economic losses across the world (see Figure below) ... 3/n Image

If you want to be an entrepreneur, you have to embrace crisis.

Yes, you read that right. In any entrepreneur's life, every day is a bit of a #crisis. Things go wrong, people misunderstand, conflicts occur — crisis is a constant companion.
Most #entrepreneurs learn to "deal with the crisis" over time. I don't think it's enough to treat crisis as unavoidable & hence reluctantly deal with it.

To be successful, we need to proactively embrace crisis & excel at dealing with it.
- Crisis can present opportunities
- It can enable the next generation of leaders to emerge
- It can inspire new ideas & solutions for problems that might not have otherwise been attempted
- Each crisis changes the way you do business

.#MAGA[ts], this is how you get played.

@EliseStefanik (and @kayleighmcenany, of course) apparently thinks that #leadership is complaining and #lying and shrieking and NOT about proposing solutions.

But then, she's a #Republican. #Governing is NOT what the @GOP does.
.#MAGA[ts], so what's ACTUALLY going on.

@POTUS @JoeBiden spend some time with @FLOTUS because it was her birthday.

No one has a right to begrudge them that. If you have a problem with it, sit and spin. Not everything is about you nor is it always your business.
.#MAGA[ts], the deal with #gasprices, as has been explained, many times, is that we are seeing a seasonal rise in prices that were, for a time, aggravated by the recent #ColonialPipeline hack that resulted in the closing of the pipeline.

#Colombia lleva un mes en #ParoNacional. Éste entra en resonancia con otras protestas del s XXI. Hemos estudiado la #primavera árabe y los chalecos amarillos. Nuestro último video 📹 propone un modelo de la dinámica de las #manifestaciones ➡️ . Abro hilo ⤵️
Toda manifestación tiene un evento detonador: en #Túnez 🇹🇳 la muerte de Mohamed Bouazizi que se inmola x falta de oportunidades, en #Francia 🇫🇷 el aumento del diesel. Ellas esconden una profunda #crisis social, corrupción y desconfianza en la democracia.
Lo agudo de la crisis se evidencia en el número de gente que sale a las calles tras el evento detonador: muchos se identifican con los problemas denunciados. En los países árabes los jóvenes eran entre el 50-70% de la población. Sin oportunidades ellos se vuelcan a la calles.

1. Breve 🪡🧵 sobre el #DiaMundialDelMedioAmbiente que viviremos el próximo 5 de junio del presente año, donde nace, su importancia y los elementos que se relevarán este 2021, y como se relaciona con las personas que trabajamos sobre esta materia…
2.El #DíaMundialDelMedioAmbiente nace en 1972 en el seno de la Asamblea General de las Naciones Unidas, la que determina que el 5 de junio se celebrará dicho día, con el fin de recordar la fecha en la que se inició la Conferencia de Estocolmo sobre el Medioambiente Humano.
3.Este día fue creado para hacer conciencia sobre los numerosos efectos que estaba y está provocando nuestra sociedad en el medio ambiente. Su primera celebración oficial fue el año 1974 y el lema de dicho año fue #SolounaTierra

Excerpts from "'America’s Post-Pandemic Geography' - Covid-19 is transforming all types of communities, from big cities to suburbs to rural areas" - from the Summer 2021 Issue of @CityJournal - by @Richard_Florida & @joelkotkin. A #Thread.

The article → city-journal.org/americas-post-…
1. "The #Pandemic will pass...But in geographic terms, today’s Covid-precipitated crises may well prove to be the most transformative event that #America has experienced since the great migration to the suburbs after World War II."
2. "....centrifugal forces pull some people out of #Cities: families seek more #Affordable space, backyards, and access to better schools. With the wider scope of choice that #RemoteWork affords, some are casting their nets wider and moving farther afield..."

Donderdag is mijn onderzoeksdag en doe ik geen patientenzorg. Zoals eerder vertelt ben ik betrokken bij onderzoek naar tacit knowledge. Maar vandaag staan andere dingen op het programma. /1
Namelijk de richtlijn palliatieve zorg voor kinderen die op dit moment herzien wordt en een presentatie voorbereiden maar vooral veel #COVID19 zaken. /2
Zoals jullie wellicht weten is de gehandicaptenzorg flink getroffen door #COVID19. De academische werkplaats ‘Sterker op eigen benen’ van @radboudumc doet daar interessant onderzoek naar./3

Looking at the #opioidcrisis deathtoll and the covid 'crisis' #lockdown you do understand, I hope, that the covidlockdown is NOT about 'saving lives'.
The opioid pharmaceutical criminals are still into business, thanks to politicians and their lawyers like Rudy Guliani 😉

Till last year, even though we were grappling with the pandemic, but it wasn't like it had come right to our door. Now, it is just very scary. Things are spiraling out of control everywhere, @bhanot_akanksha tells me.

(1/N) “Nunca desperdicie una buena #crisis”. Esta frase, de autoría de @RahmEmanuel, exalcalde de Chicago, excongresista demócrata y jefe de gabinete del entonces presidente @BarackObama entre 2009 y 2010, ha permeado diversos espacios de la vida pública y privada.
(2/N) El debate en torno al proyecto de ley de #ReformaTributaria presentado recientemente por el Gobierno nacional– no podía ser la excepción.

Se dijo que Colombia será un mejor país con la reforma que sin ella. Sin embargo, analizar las consecuencias de una #reforma de esta magnitud en medio de la peor crisis de la historia del país requiere hacer juicios de valor que son más complejos de lo que parece a primera vista.

THREAD on Friday's parliamentary crisis in #Mogadishu and broadly #Somalia's existing #electoral turmoil. I discuss what happened, and towards the end, I offer a possible electoral solution for a way forward. 1/17
At stake are two issues: did #Speaker #Mursal and opposition MPs follow the parliamentarian procedures, and does the speaker have the authority, under the parliament's rules & regulations, to suspend the 15 opposition MPs for 5 seating? Second, where do we go from here? 2/17
The speaker cited Art. 16 (1,2); Art. 18 (a, b); Art. 19 - 1 (b, c, d, e, f, g) & Art. 28-5 (n). Most of the above articles deal with the speaker's powers, the deputies, and governs' behaviors/conduct of legislators when parliament is in session. 3/17

While our February 18th monthly client call argument for rising #RealRates appeared prescient, we were surprised by the magnitude of last week’s #move and would expect a more benign evolution toward #equilibrium going forward.
Taking a stab at periodizing the past year: 1) in Feb/Mar 2020 the Covid crisis was priced into #markets, real #rates spiked higher, #inflation breakevens collapsed and #investors scrambled to raise #cash as the #SPX experienced its fastest 30% drawdown in history.
Then, 2) from Apr through Oct 2020 we witnessed the #market impact of monumental #monetary and #fiscal policy responses to the #crisis, as policymakers successfully sought to force #real rates down and restore #inflation expectations.

Why do young people leave quantitative trading 5 to 7 years in their career, and what's your advice for aspiring quantitative traders?
@CQFInstitute @RiskDotNet @icmacentre @RiskMinds
The burnout (losing interest in the job) and dropout(leaving the job) rates are stupendous.
#Quantitative Specialist Roles as they exist in the Dealing Room in the form of #Treasury, Brokerage, Fund Management, #Investment Management, #Portfolio #Asset Management, #Derivative Market Making, and various other Front -Office #Risk Roles are highly demanding jobs indeed!
Most of the traders are asked to take a mandatory leave of up to two weeks or more at financial institutions, so they can relax a bit by staying away from the financial markets.

El caso de @Don_OsoGT y #OSSO, es una muestra más de cómo una acción que puede estar amparada legalmente se enfrenta al juicio de la opinión pública y de los fans de una marca, desatando un problema de #reputación que no será una crisis pero que sí lleva evaluación. (Abro #HILO)
- Lo primero es tomar en cuenta, seas una empresa grande o pequeña, que tu marca es el activo más importante que tienes, y que la debes registrar legalmente en @IndecopiOficial. ¿Qué pasaría si tu empresa da el salto en el mercado y no has protegido tu marca? Podrías perderla.
- Lo segundo es que en la defensa de la marca, si alguien busca aprovecharse de ella y generar confusión, efectivamente, vale tomar acciones siempre que tengas un registro. La mala fe se detecta rápidamente, aquí un caso personal contra la #AgenciaTaipá linkedin.com/posts/miltonve…

Se me ha ocurrido hacer un hilo de #vinos #tintos buenos para una #crisis. Vinos que no superan los 10€, porque, el vino bueno, es el que te gusta, no el más caro. Ojo: no soy experta, solo catadora habitual y firme creyente de que el vino es cultura. #ElVinoDelLunes 👇🏻
1.- D.O.TORO: GRAN CONQUERO 2016 Viñas Viejas. Se vende en Mercadona. Tinta de Toro 100%. Un vinazo a precio popular. Apto para amantes de la intensidad y las carnes rojas. Una comida de Navidad rebajando grasa y con un sabor extraordinario (es marca blanca de Bajoz)
2.- D.O. RIBERA DEL GUADIANA (Extremadura): PALACIO QUEMADO Crianza 2017. Tempranillo con un toque de Cabernet Sauvignon. Un vino fácil, sedoso, de capa baja. De esos que dices “está bueno”, no importa cuando leas esto.

Now, even as the #CoronavirusVaccine dominates the headlines, we should take heed on the three detrimental 'undercurrents' that are converging to a 'Perfect Storm':

1) Financial instability.
2) Economic fragility.
3) Political uncertainty.

In June 2013, we warned on the detrimental effects of the prolonged low int. rate envir.

"The long-term effects of the zero-bound on the financial markets are not known. What is known, is that extended periods of monetary easing may lead to bubbles." 2/

We were not particularly worried about the situation in 2013, but in June 2016 we were:

"...fraudulent behavior, indebtedness, persistent macroeconomic imbalances, and major mispricing of risks are usually present before major financial disruptions." 3/
