On the 53rd anniversary of the day Dr. King was assassinated, here is a #thread of #speeches and #sermons in which he speaks truth to power, shares about his philosophy of nonviolence, and expounds on issues of injustice and what our righteous, rigorous response should be. #MLK
“We’re coming to get our check.” #MLK on #poverty, #economic inequality, and America’s refusal to distribute “land to Black people, although the nation distributed land to other groups.
Today also marks the 54th anniversary of #MLK’s ‘Beyond #Vietnam: A Time to Break Silence.’ Please spend some time with it. “If America's soul becomes totally poisoned, part of the autopsy must read: Vietnam.” Link:

@LimestoneAnalyt together with economists from @queensu, developed this model to measure the economic impact of #COVID19. The model is designed to provide #GDP and workforce projection captures dynamic input-output interactions between industrial sectors.
It can accommodate various scenarios regarding how the disease is likely to spread and consumer behavior likely to change. It provides economic projections for the period of January to December 2021 for three mitigation and recovery strategies.

1/3 Once >50s and clinically vulnerable people have had #Covid19 #vaccine, the tradeoff of benefits and #harms for #TestAndTrace and #asymptomatic testing in particular changes rapidly. My take at @bmj_latest #CovidUnknowns seminar yesterday
2/3 Big issue - when #hospitalisation #deaths low and the vulnerable protected, why would we ask #children #parents #essentialworkers and other non-Zoomocrats to #SelfIsolate, #test over and over to leave home? Listen to @bmj_latest #Covidunknowns webinar
3/3 Will we really ask the groups already most affected by #economic and #mentalhealth impact of #Covid19 to #SelfIsolate indefinitely when life opens up for others?

#Hypothesis: Agreement to disengage in Pangong lake was reached in Sept-oct, but #CCP11 backtracked in Oct/nov on expectation of Biden win! Blinken's 6th Feb call to Yang Xi confirmed firm US policy towards China. #Xi gave approval for implantation of Pangong agreement thereafter

@AndrewYang is just another example of a politician who doesn’t get it. Why should New Yorkers elect someone who sees one of the strongest tactics of #economic #resistance as similar to anti-Semitic violence?
Why would you trust someone who would suggest that the use of a #boycott (prominently featured in American & global #history to topple #racist regimes) is a racist & fascist tactic?

That is someone who wants to take your power away.
#Palestinians are first, because we’re an easy target. But if you think it stops there, you need to learn from #history. The #US has tried to target & outlaw #boycotts for a long, long time.

Vice-president under Barack #Obama and a senator for 36 years, #JoeBiden is a political figure familiar to most Americans🇺🇸

To many, he lacks the aura of the last Democratic president, but after a period of turmoil in US politics, is he the steady pair of hands the nation needs?
#US 🇺🇸 President Joe #Biden moved swiftly to dismantle Donald #Trump’s legacy on his first day in office.

The president signed a series of executive actions to reverse course on immigration, climate change, racial equity and handling of the pandemic ✍️

@WassimCornet reports ⤵️
@WassimCornet 🇺🇸 Meanwhile, Donald #Trump has a long way to go to rebuild an image left in tatters by his presidency, particularly the final months.

France 24's @ketgorjestani said that the Republican left the White House "with the lowest rating of his presidency" ⤵️

The last several weeks have provided abundant drama for #markets to digest, but in our latest @BlackRock Market Insights commentary, we suggest that it’s two recent #publications that might prove more instructive for #portfolio #allocation in 2021: bit.ly/3p39aMo
First, @jasonfurman and @LHSummers make a strong case that lackluster #growth and #inflation in developed #markets may be boosted by targeted #fiscal spending. Over long horizons, the #cash flows that accrue from productive #investments render the #debt incurred sustainable.
Second, @RobertJShiller published a significant update to his widely followed #CAPE model: subtracting the real #yield on #USTs from the reciprocal of the CAPE ratio to show what an #equity #investor may expect to earn over #risk-free #bonds, in real terms based on #market price.

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.

When it comes to the #Covid #pandemic I’m open to people’s various interpretations as to “why this happened“. However, when it comes to the #Economic #depression it is clear that the pandemic did not create the depression; the government created the depression. 1/
If you are going to tell people to “stay home”, “close your business”, or are in any way telling people to “reduce your income” or “stop earning a living” all together, AND you don’t give them the economic assistance to do so, then YOU created the #depression, not #COVID19. 2/
By now, it should go without saying that economic hardship and poverty are not “personal choices“ when they exist on the scales they already did prior to #COVID19: they are the results of systems of oppression and that is politics. They are political choices. 3/

Nigerian Stock Market

The #equities market presents attractive opportunities for #investors in form of capital appreciation and dividend return given the low yield environment in the fixed income space.
#Nigerian stocks are currently undervalued and present an opportunity for growth in the short to medium term.
The current #ROI in the #equities market is positive with a YTD return at over 47.5% compared to the #inflation rate at 14.9%.
We believe #stocks in the #financial services (mostly #banks), ICT, and the #industrial sectors present strong prospects for growth given their resilience to the #economic recession.

Even if a #Brexit deal were secured, there would still be trade disruption given new administrative burdens on firms exporting into the #EU
Uncertainty across all economies, combined with a new national lockdown across countries in January to counter the second wave and new strain of #COVID19
means choppy #economic activity across the board in Q1 for all major/emerging currencies and will see #investors taking solace in traditional safe-haven assets.

Clear stakes:

"China has implemented a strategy & revisionist approach that aims at the heart of the US’ #maritime power."

The turn of the calendar year invites the temptation to prognosticate regarding the course of the year ahead for the #economy and for #markets, and not being immune to that impulse, here are our views on the “11 themes to consider as we look toward 2021:” bit.ly/386mb0r
In preview, one key theme is that 2021’s nominal #GDP growth is likely to surprise many skeptics with its strength. The sources of upside surprise can be found in: 1) the new #fiscal #stimulus combined with structural budget #deficits
And in 2) the @federalreserve’s ongoing asset purchases and 3) the impressive #economic momentum that is still broadly underestimated, as a post-election, and #pandemic-recovering world can catalyze 2020/21’s monetized #stimulus (more than 15% of GDP) into impressive NGDP growth.

While we know a lot about the importance of #internet related technologies and digitisation practices to #economic performance and #productivity , we don't know much about the long-term effects of the early adoption of such technologies. [2/n]
This is understandable as the commercial #internet is c. only 25 years and relevant #data can be scarce especially at a disaggregated #Regional level. [3/n]

Previously, I linked #BuildBackBetter & the #GreatReset to the #MauriceStrong network (mid-1970s but kicking off with the 1992 UN #EarthSummit in Rio). I also linked Strong to the #Rockefeller clan. We may have to go a bit further back in time.

Thread 👇
In 1972, The #ClubofRome published its '#LimitsToGrowth', using simulations to describe the impact of resource depletion on #economic growth. The Club was founded in 1968 by David #Rockefeller, the industrialist Aurelio Peccei & Alexander King.
Its computer-generated models of #doom were designed to impress but were based on simplistic ideas & dubious assumptions. The report, nonetheless, remains influential & illustrates the #Rockefeller obsession with population growth & #resource control

Have you noticed how the people making the arguments for a hard or no-deal #Brexit aren’t formally connected, but sound similar?
And have you noticed how none of their arguments seem to be a positive thing for the #environment?
There’s one very good reason why.
All those pushing for market deregulation and for the #UK to enter into trade deals that could be catastrophic for the #climate are connected
As a new map from DeSmog shows, there is a large network of lobbyists and campaigners based out of offices in and around Westminster’s
55 Tufton Street – with ties to climate science denial on both sides of the #Atlantic – that is now calling the #Brexit shots
Tufton Street Network
The map shows around 2,000 connections between the supposedly separate groups in the network, all operating around #Tufton Street.

As we head into the U.S. #election, there will continue to be a lot of noise that may lead to near-term #market #volatility, particularly since (as we’ve long argued) #markets appear to be able to only focus on one thing at a time!
Still, at times like this it’s crucial to focus on more consequential factors that will drive #markets in the years ahead: in this case, the powerful combination of @federalreserve #monetarypolicy and #fiscal rescue measures intended to keep the #economic engine on track.
So, while many will continue to be skeptical of the sustainability of this #economic recovery, we’ve been impressed by its strength, particularly in the #interest-rate-sensitive segments of the #economy, like #housing, which is going through the roof!
