A tip for receiving compliments, specific to American business culture:

“Thank you.”
“Thanks; that made my day.”
“Thanks; it is always great to know the work matters to people.”

are all probably better socially adjusted than deflecting compliments.

Just macro your favorite.
I grew up in a social milieu which expects self-effacing behavior and I know many other folks who are socialized similarly. This is not generally rewarded in the American professional sphere.
If someone says “Thank you. Your work was key to shipping $X.” and you say “Oh I don’t deserve that! Many people worked on $X.” you have just stapled “WAS NOT KEY CONTRIBUTOR ON $X” to their memory of your performance.

Applying a business model to the growth and development of children has hurt and demoralized education

Competition does not work because the true stakeholders (children, families, society) profit from the emotional and psychological work done in the classroom, when done well...
... Yet 600B is spent in the US on #ed and thousand of companies make heavy profits.

While at the same time, teachers must find extra income to make ends meet, some live barely above the poverty line, and teacher turn over costs 1B a year

Meaning a highly specialized...
... workforce, that can make huge changes and gains in the lives of the 50mil children that are in the public education system, that have the emotional and psychological experience to support the growth of a nation

gets passed over for the TRUE work that they perform...

Who are these two foreign pilots flying around Indian PM in the #seaplane? Shouldn't this be a security issue? Or is it normalization of things to come? Stay tuned for our <thread> on the issue.
2 Is a Prime Minister allowed to fly aboard a single engine aircraft as per GoI protocol? What about one that is flown by foreign pilots? Why cant this #SeaPlane been flown by IAF pilots? More than any protocols entire Indian military is being bypassed here, what does that mean?
3 So the #seaplane in which our PM was flown in came directly from Pakistan & was flown by foreign pilots! And our Indian security forces allowed that???

This is the sorry state of Indian security establishment. Havent they learned anything from #HomiBhabha assassination?

Global Plunder in a Liberalized Post Financial Meltdown World

Case Study: India-US.

This <thread> examines the origin of present day economic crisis in the West & how India is embroiled in that spiral of swindle taking us along with it towards total oblivion. #IndiaForSale
With 90s economic liberalization we set aside sound monetary fundamentals tht stood our financial system in good stead for over 50 years. As these were slowly eroded novel concepts became the norm rather than exception replacing even ways in which inflation indices are calculated
Despite assurances of various FMs on soundness of Indian Economic & Banking Fundamentals India has seen a periodic meltdown of financial markets every 7 years or so. We know now casino style gambling defines our economy & that theres something structurally wrong in our approach.
