It was a good to join @TheWorld’s @MarcoWermer and @BTI's Zeke @hausfath to question the compatibility of our relentless #GrowthDependency and achieving carbon targets. A few reflections on the discussion in this thread 1/7
pri.org/file/2021-04-3…
We all agree that rapid absolute #decoupling of emissions (not to mention impacts on #biodiversity etc) is necessary. And possible. By investing in cleaner technology #renewables #efficiency #circulareconomy #greennewdeal @AOC 2/7
Our disagreement arises from whether technology is sufficient to achieve what’s needed – to stay within 1.5 degrees for instance – without challenging @GretaThunberg’s ‘fairytales of eternal economic growth’ #theredqueen 3/7

Email productivity thread

Gaining proficiency with MS Outlook has been really important in helping me accomplish as much as I have.

Now, I can usually process 200-300 emails in about 30 minutes. I’m asked frequently how I do it - I will try to explain in this thread.

1/
It starts with being able to search efficiently and accurately. For many many years, I didn’t know how to do this. I would type a few words in the search bar and then scroll the myriad of hits till I found what I was looking for.

There is a better way.

2/
First, go to options within the file menu and change your search setting to search all outlook items, not just the current folder. This will save you from having to tell outlook you do it with each individual search

Is #concentration rising? @AffeldtPauline, @JoannaPiechucka, #KlausGugler and I use a novel dataset containing information on over 20,000 relevant antitrust markets between 1990-2014 to assess this question: cepr.org/active/publica…. We find quite some heterogeneity. A thread 1/N
The extant literature measures #concentration using #industry classifications. Data are mostly aggregated at the national/regional level for all products. Yet, both the #geographic and the #product market definitions should be based on the #substitutability among products. 2/N
Our database identifies over 20,000 product/geographic #antitrust markets affected by over 2,000 mergers scrutinized by the European Commission between 1995-2014. This allows measuring concentration consistently on an economy-wide basis over time (diw.de/documents/publ…) 3/N

"When making decisions, instead of asking ourselves which option will give us the best results, we should be asking which option will give us good-enough results under the widest range of future states of the world."
psyche.co/ideas/why-effi… via @psyche_the_mag
"And satisficing with an eye toward a radically uncertain future might be called robust satisficing."

Good enough seems to be a better bet - especially as we become familiar with the variability and swift state changes common to #ComplexSystems
So much of #ResilienceTheory has led us to question our #DecisionMaking ; and the hyper-focused drive toward #Efficiency rather than #Resiliency

2/ For #steel, all countries can reduce #emissions in this sector to zero by 2050 & aim for 25-30% by 2030. Huge scrap #recycling potential in #EU, #USA, #China. No new conventional steel plants shld be built. #Fuel switch to #hydrogen, #circulareconomy bit.ly/CAT_PSR1 Image

Indian government is spending billion of dollars on advertising of reduction in pollution control, efficient use of Fuels & Energy Conservation Research projects. Even PSU companies too are spending similar amounts in researching on same. #Energy #Fuel #Efficiency #Thread 1/5 Image
But Government is only dependent on few government institutions with limited exposure to international trends & people who have come to these institutes on deputation, few are retired people for all the research & decision making who doesn’t even know what are latest trends.2/5
Inspite of having very reputed private companies in India who are supplying such technologies to worldwide successfully, these institutions r not even look at them or even after approaching them they are least bother to even go through there suggestions. 3/5 #EnergyConservation

What’s the huge advantage of driving a car? 🤔

Having the freedom of going anywhere and stopping wherever you want on the way 😊

mobile.twitter.com/search?q=%23Ro…

I didn’t buy a @Tesla for city driving. I bought it exclusively for #RoadTripping, because it’s an #EV.

#ClimateCrisis
For 10 years I have not owned any car.

I am getting around the city of @Bordeaux by bicycle as this is the most convenient and quick way to move in a European urban environment 🚲😊

For #RoadTrips outside the town I used #CarSharing (up to a few weeks).

However, I have been bothered by the #ClimateCrisis since 2005 and it’s been more and more difficult to cope with nasty petrol or diesel fill-ups and the CO2 and pollutant emissions associated with them 😖

#Neuroscientists worldwide are increasingly studying #myelin and its amazing impact on rapid #learning, mastery, and neuroplasticity. So keep your circuits strong with deep, focused practice, but remember: #myelination requires quality versus quantity.
What Is #Myelination?
Myelination is the process of “insulating” a new neural pathway to strengthen it and to forge new default #behaviors. Heavily myelinated neural pathways are up to 300 times faster.
They’ve been optimized for speed and #efficiency. Increasing #myelination via intentional #practice helps us become more emotionally agile.

Today's Applied Complexity Symposium begins with a panel on Computation and Complex Economies, feat. Rob Axtell, Joshua Epstein, @C4COMPUTATION, Blake LeBaron, John Miller, & @MelMitchell1

(Follow this thread for live coverage all day...)

#complexsystems #economics
4 Principles of Collective #Computation:

1 Ground truth (objective reality)
2 Effective ground truth (what we agree on, whether or not it is accurate)
3 #Information can be collectively encoded in #networks
4 Outputs are a product of collective dynamics

@C4COMPUTATION right now
"I think #economics really needs to adopt a generative framework with agent-based models of cognitively plausible software people...[and] we don't choose to fear."

What does an economy do? Modern #economics suggests it is about [production] #efficiency, and develops models for assessing the degree to which it is achieved and predicting outcomes assuming it. This is a fundamental misunderstanding that, when scratching on the surface, clearly
is as impossible as it is undesirable. Economy is about #valuecreation: about getting more out of less. Efficiency is backward-looking and lacking of progress, while value creation is future-oriented and aspirational. What I mean by that is that efficiency is about tinkering with
processes and mechanisms that already exist, with the goal of making them run faster, smoother, and with less waste. It is about #management, about reducing costs and cutting overhead. But one cannot cut costs unless there is already an established process ssrn.com/abstract=30582…

Past experience has spoken against the effectiveness of setting rigid targets and eligibility requirements to enhance commercial sustainability of #financial institutions. Assessing the effectiveness of #banks’ support to private #firms only by quantitative measures isn't valid.
But this doesn't mean evaluation isn't needed, instead we should evaluate from multi dimensions, while following #market rules, taking into account the quantity, #efficiency and #quality of #loans, and enhancing the precision of support and banks’ #commercial #sustainability.
It is better not to rely on rigid measures, otherwise a variety of old problems would repeatedly occur. By Xiao Gang, former #CSRC Chairman and CF40 non-resident senior fellow.
