Sladkov at an economic forum in Piter says: Putin has been speaking for almost an hour now, clearly, with numbers and examples.
Main theme: development independent of the West.
Even for those that hate Putin his ability to retain and use vast amount of information is unreal
This guy is capable of keeping up with enormous amount of information and use it for his goals. He is extremely hands on and detail oriented. Persistent and tenacious. You don't have to like him but country leaders like that are a rare breed.
Sladkov is in real time providing a summary of what is being said at the conference
Vladimir Putin: “Economic independence cannot be partial. All elements of independence are important.”

Fun #trade fact:

#Pakistan's #Imports of mobile phones on a monthly basis fell from $124M in FY21 to $27M in FY22.
👇👇👇However....
#Pakistan's #imports of Completely Knocked Down (CDK) kits of #mobile phones increased from $52.8M to $110.2M in the same period.

Overall, #imports of mobiles + CKD #mobiles did not change on a monthly basis, between FY21 and FY22 (177M versus 174M) 👇👇
What I conclude:
1) The #import substitution argument to save #dollars is weak.
2) As I learned from @ashraf179, no forex saving, but foregone revenue: duties on parts are lower than on the final product.
3) There may be a job gain, but limited.

1/ The #PhysicalVersusPaper discussion and the effect on silver’s price can be a heated topic. Part of the last “#spaces” event we touched on various #derivative products constructed by BofA and JP Morgan.
2/ Expanding on this topic where #Silver (the actual metal) is used as a ploy to create publicly traded #investments, let’s look at 2 more traded #securities.
3/ Just like buying processed food, what is on the front of the box may not necessarily have anything to do with the actual ingredients listed on the back label. Remember to read the #nutritional facts in the prospectus before consuming.

Je m'étais intéressé à @presearchnews il y a quelques mois sans être convaincu.

Pour faire court, c'est un moteur de recherche qui rémunère ses utilisateurs lors de leurs recherches.

Aujourd'hui, je vois que je récupère des #visiteurs sur @AucoinDubloc qui viennent de chez eux. Image
Cela signifie qu'il y a derrière une certaine utilisation.

Je creuse un peu et je vois qu'on peut se placer sur des mots clés via le #Staking de $PRE (j'ai pensé à @asyncr0ne & #SEO)

Un avantage non négligeable pour une présence optimisée sur internet. Je vais test ça bientôt. Image
Plus ancien mais toujours d'actualité, un système de #Node derrière pour vous permettre de #gagner des récompenses.

Le nœud semble plutôt simple à mettre en place avec un collatéral de 2000 $PRE.

Il me semble que @MiningTk possède déjà au moins un nœud sur le réseau. Image

Why #futures are poison for any asset and definitely for #gold, #silver and #Bitcoin

Tweet storm :
Since many #commodities have limited elasticity in supply, the #futures markets - and specially those that don’t require settlement in the underlying asset - are there to create artificial, in principle unlimited supply.
They are the main and key instrument for controlling the price of an asset by pumping up virtual supply of an asset in amounts that simply don’t exist in reality.

Why gold should be the asset to focus on for the next few years?

#gold #investing #wealthcreation

A Thread!

M2 which is a broad measure of money supply, has grown 81% in the last 7yrs to nearly $20Trn. An increase in the supply of money typically lowers interest rates, which generates more investment and puts more money in the hands of consumers. Hence stimulating spending.

Bonds struggled during the last major stagflationary period, in the late 1960s. Rise in oil prices,unemployment, loose monetary policy pushed the core CPI Index to a high of 13.5%. The Fed had to raise interest rates by nearly 20%.

1. "Yesterday was such a frustrating day that by evening I had to go to bed with chest pains..."

Thread. What is a #Hybrid #VotingMachine & Why Do I Care?

2. "It started out a good day. The day before I celebrated my 14th anniversary with my husband. The cherry blossom tree we planted in the backyard was exploding in pink taffy balls, and the smell of the lilies he got me floated through the living room as I walked to my desk."
3. "From there it went downhill pretty quickly ... For the last 2 years, I have been trying to protect New York voters, and voters across the country from a particularly “bad” type of voting machine known as a “hybrid”.

What is a “hybrid” voting machine?"

#tether watch!

This time, captured it LIVE! (just happened to realize i was checking at the right time).

Top numbers took longer to update, so added em myself. +33 mil tonight, interesting.

Think that's cause it's a Saturday. Markets are quiet. Image
In order to buy bitcoin for tethers somebody's still gotta trade the #bitcoin for tethers.

Currently they're fine that as #Tether's become the medium of exchange between #crypto.

Point is, with less market participants, less people willing to sell their crypto for Tethers.
BTW i'm also suspecting them of generating much of the bitcoin and tether volume in dollar terms themselves. If they'd move #crypto between accounts the they own on the exchange, it'd show up in the charts as volume. Since trade volume is low, they'd be pretty big block trades.

The #deficit #myth #deficitmyth by @StephanieKelton #MMT modern monetary theory
Myth N. 1: The #state should budget like a #household
#RealityCheck : unlike a household, a #SovereignNation, which owns its national #centralbank, issues the #currency it spends
Myth N. 2: #deficit is evidence of #overspending
#RealityCheck: look to #inflation for evidence of over spending

The massive reset of the middle class in 2020 after #COVIDー19

#inflation #deflation #stagflation
#usfed #euro #dollars

Western countries are dealing with this crisis by increasing debts, increasing social spending and hence, ensuring the destruction of their currencies
and their bond markets and impoverishing the citizens along the way.
The destruction of the middle class allows governments to enact all sorts of dangerous policies because the middle class is really what rises up.
However, in other countries, mainly in Asia, Eastern Europe, and even Russia, they’re not handling this in the same fashion.
Many of these countries don’t even have social spending programs to the extent that the West does.

@UNRWA
While demanding #humanitarian aid from across the #globe, the #Palestinian Authority spent $2.1 billion to fund #Islamic #terrorism between 2011 and 2018.
Billions of #dollars in foreign aid have been unaccounted for – money that was supposed to go to #Palestinian citizens under the oppressive and #militant #jihadist government run by President Mahmoud Abbas and the #Islamic #terrorist group #Hamas
money that supposedly went to programs that haven’t existed for many years.

Ten #MMT tips to remember on #TaxDay:
1. Federal #taxes don't fund federal spending, so let's #decouple these two important tools.
2. Taxes offset #Government spending.
3. It's a matter of #logic: #dollars must be spent into existence (by the Gov) first, in order for us to use some of those $ to pay taxes
4. #Taxing for #revenue is for local states/municipalities, not the #sovereign issuer of the #currency.
5. Taxing excessive wealth protects #democracy from #Oligarchy and protects us from abusive market power
6. Taxing #pollution & #speculation to reduce such activities, not to "fund" #healthcare and #education.

According to the @WSJ the Iraqi #government has bank accounts with the U.S. Federal Reserve, where its #dollars are kept, which the Iraqi economy relies upon could be frozen should Iraq violate #sanctions politico.com/magazine/story…
#Iran has deliberately flooded Iraqi market with cheap imports and foodstuffs. This has undercut Iraq agriculture by decreasing demand4 homegrown products that R more expensive. Even if Iraq were2 stop buying these goods #farmers would not B able2 produce enough supplies at home
Iran has political leverage, too. Since the May 12 national #election Iraq’s political elites have been unable to form a government in part because of enormous pressure from #Tehran to install politicians in their favor. Iran’s loyalists succeed and dominate the new government...
