THREAD on @TheLSSSE 2021 Annual Report, "The #COVID Crisis in Legal Education." There's some good news, some bad news, and a call to action. Listen up! 👇 /1… Image
.@TheLSSSE Report begins with comments from law students. Some are positive: "Most profs have done an amazing job in dealing w/#COVID & transitioning to hybrid learning." Others are agonizing: “Most of us are struggling--financially, physically, emotionally.” Let's dig deeper. /2
First, some good news: the core of #legaled is relatively unchanged, with high levels of satisfaction & positive interactions with faculty & classmates. One high point in @TheLSSSE data: 93% of students appreciated that their law profs showed “care and concern for students." /3 Image

We've now talked to over 100 #climate #startup #founders for @enduring_planet and we're seeing a pattern. A 🧵
(1) First and foremost, there is incredible innovation happening in the space. The pace at which new #climatetech is entering the market and getting validation is staggering. We are truly at the early days of a New Climate Economy. I AM SO EXCITED 🍿🚀
(2) unfortunately, most #founders in #climatetech don't think holistically about the capital they're raising to finance their businesses. The vast majority (over 90%) are going exclusively after VC, without considering non-dilutive options

Anyone perusing the top articles of major media outlets last weekend would have read several pieces on the extraordinary #shortages being witnessed in the U.S. #economy today, and particularly those in the #labor market.
The tone of many articles was pessimistic, suggesting that the #supply-side #shortages and dislocations may be systemic, or long-term, but we think there’s evidence that the U.S. #economy will display considerably greater dynamism and resilience than the pessimists believe.
First, it’s vital to recognize that this is a #supply constraint problem, not one of #demand. Indeed, strong demand is being driven by a host of powerful influences: 1) household balance sheets never been cleaner and HH #wealth is $25 trillion greater now than pre-Covid level.

#German TV / main news program
(WDR/ARD is a public broadcaster):

"Britain has piled up record debt in the pandemic. Prime Minister Johnson is planning new, expensive reforms. Even his own party fears he is not good with money."

#BorisJohnson #debt #UK
"Some Conservatives in Great Britain are currently worried that Prime Minister Boris Johnson is handling the state's finances in the same way as he handles his own private money - according to the motto: Just spend it, there's never enough anyway."
"And there's not enough in the national budget - especially now. The Covid crisis has cost billions, more than 300 billion pounds in aid and bailout money, among other things. The United Kingdom's borrowing is at record levels, as the latest figures for May show."

How I Eliminated Debt and Grew My First $6000:

• Taxed Myself
• Made Debt Visual
• Stuck to a Budget
• Recorded my Expenses
• Built an Emergency Fund

(Thread)👇🏽 Image
•Taxing myself

My favorite hack, If governments use it as a way to increase revenue, then we can use it as a tool to boost personal savings.

Add tax onto every purchase you make, then divert the tax into a savings account.

You end up;

“Spending and Saving Simultaneously”
•Make debt visual

Although it’s not a tool to save money, it creates awareness of your debt and brings you closer to paying it off, so you can begin saving more.

If you don’t know what you need to pay, then it’s hard to track, and easy to fall back into a debt trap.

Beyond thrilled to have been awarded a *renewal* for my @NIH_LRP award!!!!!! Story time (on #privilege and #perseverance)

#medtwitter #academictwitter #blackinSTEM 1/
As a first-generation #Kenyan American, raised in #Kenya and very much an #African child (if you know you know), a #doctor is very much what I was going to be from the time I was born. 😋 (thankfully, also a marrying of my love of science and taking care of people!) 2/
So it was to my parents’ incredible delight when I got accepted to #medicalschool, never having... basically... known someone who had done so, in the US anyway. #firstgen #firstgeneration (yes, this story has a comical peak, wait for it...) 3/

A kind request in the larger interest of #investors to @SEBI_India that if possible a forensic audit of all #MutualFund #portfolios where-in #Debt #investment is there can be done. It will help them to redevelop the kind of trust each #investor had in #Debt #mutualfunds! (1/n)
We believe that if this forensic audit is made mandatory in every 3 years for all #MutualFunds which has made any % of #investment in #Debt papers. It will ensure that events of past that are still ongoing will not happen. (2/n) @monikahalan @rohankaviraj @bsindia @IamMisterBond
Pleased to see that our regulator @SEBI_India has now issued circular yesterday pertaininig to 'Potential Risk Class Matrix for debt schemes based on Interest Rate Risk & Credit Risk' with effect from Dec 1, 2021, for all the

In our latest @BlackRock Market Insights commentary we argue that #inflation’s role in the #economic order can be misinterpreted, and therefore that #policy seeking to achieve positive ends can ironically become the means by which those ends are undone:
Today, policymakers face a set of increasingly critical choices that could end up shaping our quality of life for a generation. Changes to the #Fed’s #inflation framework, without being fully debated, may ironically end up exacerbating the very problems they seek to alleviate.
One might paraphrase the #Fed mandate of full employment and stable prices as being intended “to preserve the purchasing power of as many as possible” – or, to create the best quality of life for the community. So, how do varying levels of #inflation impact that mandate?

As you are waiting for your deliveries to cross the #suezchannel, here are a few factsabout this lifeline for the global economy and Egypt's government budget. A long🧵about #debt, #capitalism, #civilization, and related myths. 1/
The construction of the channel from 1859 to 1869 was not only a technical achievement, but also the result of a geostrategic struggle between 🇫🇷 wanting to increase its trading power through a channel, and🇬🇧 interested in shortening and controlling the shiproute to India. 2/
At the period, the Egyptian Khedives Mohamed Said (1854-63) and Ismail Pasha (1863-79) had launched ambitious reform and modernization programs. The plan was to catch up to the "civilized" world by i.a. establishing property rights in land and liberalizing the economy. 3/ Ismail PashaMohamed Said
