As expected, the @federalreserve’s Federal Open Market Committee continued to discuss its plans to reduce, or #taper, the pace of its #AssetPurchase program at yesterday’s meeting.
While the details of this discussion were fairly sparse, the Committee statement did state that: “If progress continues broadly as expected, the Committee judges that a moderation in the pace of asset purchases may soon be warranted.”
Further, at the recent #Fed conference in Jackson Hole, Wyo., and at the press conference, Fed #ChairPowell emphasized that both he and most Committee participants now consider the test of “substantial further progress” toward the #inflation mandate to be largely satisfied.

LTNs - Low Traffic Neighbourhoods - Good or Bad? 🧵(1/9)

(We're trying to be objective here & full disclosure - we have no direct experience of LTNs, just lots of tweets read.)

It seems to be far more complicated than just good or bad - there are layers on both sides...
2/9
We hear from people living *inside* LTNs that benefits include
* Lower #AirPollution
* Safer streets for active travel
* Quieter
* Less traffic within LTN, including rat-running
3/9
Yet we also hear the cons of living inside include
* Poorer access for disabled people
* Poor access for emergency vehicles
* Poor access for deliveries
* Difficulty having visitors

Most Indians consider equity to be an asset class meant for speculation, and consider house/gold/FD as the safest investments. However, equity can give better returns if held with the same discipline for a longer term. (1/n)

#stocks #finance #investing #equity
Amidst all the noise, we have forgotten the basic definition of equity. Equity is a stake in a company. When the company prospers, the stake becomes more valuable. Holding some good names for a longer term has an added advantage to a person’s wealth creation. (2/n)
#Finance
FD gives -ve inflation adjusted post tax return, and real estate has its own cycle of ups and downs. Yet, these are considered as safe havens. Gold has always given positive returns and Nifty, in the last 10 ys has given an average return of 12-13%. (3/n)

1-Today there was a big protest in Montréal by healthcare workers opposed to mandatory vaccination.

As a healthcare professional & a bioethics I want to underline a few points about #VaccineMandates for healthcare provides
🧵👇🏾
2-In bioethics, autonomy is no longer that centuries-old belief that the individual can or does somehow stand apart from their community, social circumstances & political environment. Also, autonomy has a different scope when intervention in question has implications beyond self.
3-Dr Nedelsky(osgoode.yorku.ca/faculty-and-st…) calls the belief that autonomy is isolated from outside influence a “pathology”: “If we ask ourselves what actually enables people to be autonomous, the answer is not isolation, but relationships—with parents,
teachers, friends, loved ones.”

It was 73 degrees and sunny in #JacksonHole, Wyoming, today; a perfect day for all those who were there….
Yet, there were no #monetary policy officials present at the traditional location of the @KansasCityFed’s late-summer #economic policy symposium, since they were conducting a “virtual symposium.”
That symposium provided #ChairPowell the opportunity to lay out a reasonably sunny perspective on the U.S. #economy, but also one that was not out of the woods yet, in terms of Covid variant risk and a maximum #employment target still to be achieved.

PETER MANDELSON, a key Labour figure and pro-EU campaigner, was in 2019 organising a caviar-and-oysters dinner for Tory cabinet minister Michael Gove to meet “investors” and “corporates” to discuss “to what extent is Brexit an opportunity.”
Mandelson is currently a semi-official adviser to Keir #Starmer’s team. Morgan McSweeney, who was Starmer’s chief of staff and is now Labour’s “elections director,” is particularly close to Mandelson.
Mandelson was one of the leaders of the “people’s vote” campaign, which persuaded Labour to run on a second referendum on Brexit policy in the December 2019 election.
Labour advanced in the 2017 election on a policy of respecting the EU referendum,

1/ This is why we need to #AlertTheClass, and the lack of mandatory #COVID19 #testing for all in place before opening #schools here may be a big mistake.

The #DeltaVariant is surging in #Arlington County, but the people who spread it "feel just fine."

nature.com/articles/d4158…
2/ #Delta's #KillerAdvantage:

Infected folks spread 🦠 for 1.8 days before they ever get first symptom.

Symptoms show up 5.8 days AFTER infection, on average, says Hong Kong research team.

Spreaders also have far higher viral load.
74% infections from presymptomatic spread
3/ One bit of good news in this: Vaccinated individuals were 65% less likely to infect someone, but the estimate is based on a very small sample size.

Wow! Was für ein Aufschlag! Grüne Klima-Finanzierung schon von mehreren Instituten gegengerechnet, Naturschutzverbände schon im Boot für Beschleunigung von Onshore und PV Ausbau, die 1. 100 Tage wird Merkels Sabotage rückgängig gemacht
Ich bin echt beeindruckt. So viel Kompetenz, kein Geschwafel (naja, Baerbock n bissl, aber im Kontext nich verkehrt). BAM BAM BAM geht das hier ab.
Die Fragen der Journos waren zumeist voraussehbar bescheuert 0/8/15. Typisch klimadoofe Polit-Schwurbler.
Guckts Euch an, 45min im wiedervernässten Moor. Auch das Setting echt gut gewählt. Ich kann mir vorstellen, dass das alles hinhaut. Ein wenig muss sicher nachjustiert werden, wenn Engpässe nicht im voraus abgefedert wurden. Stichwort Manpower und Rohstoffe.

The Biden administration has embraced full @DrIbram ideology (past racism must be fixed with present racism).

The result?

Covid relief policies that systematically discriminate against whites, Middle Easterners, North Africans, and others.

Latest:

city-journal.org/the-systemic-r…
The Restaurant Revitalization Fund and $4 billion farmer debt relief for "socially disadvantaged" Americans explicitly discriminates on the basis of race.

"People of color" qualify/are prioritized - whites are excluded. But only *some* POC.

THREAD ⬇️

Only some "people of color" qualify for @JoeBiden's $4 billion farmer covid relief.

Indian: yes

Afghani: no

Indonesian: yes

Iraqi: no

Nepalese: yes

Moroccan: no

Middle Easterners, North Africans, and some Asians are ineligible to apply.

Great conversation with @MerrillLynch CIO Chris Hyzy, as part of their #MerrillPerspectives event. Some of the topics we discuss follow and the full conversation can be accessed here: ml.com/2021-midyear-e…
On the #market lessons stemming from the pandemic, I suggested that- stepping back- while a lot has been thrown at the #economy and markets over the past 30 years, in every case the #policy response has been critical to evaluate in judging the ultimate impact: policy matters!
That said, we think there is an overestimation of the importance of exceedingly low #policy rate levels to the recovery but maintaining the stability and #liquidity of the financing #markets is critical, particularly at the top end of the capital stack.

🧵1/7 The #CRISPresearch team developed recommendations for @IndyChamber to advance inclusive economic growth in Indy. They focused on economic development, housing, access to economic opportunity, & community equity. Read the thread below from the report: policyinstitute.iu.edu/news-media/sto…
🧵2/7 Any region hoping to achieve full #EconomicInclusion & prosperity must address institutional disparities. That includes recognizing the negative impact legacies of racist and/or exclusionary policies had on residents & taking steps to correct those errors. #CRISPresearch
🧵3/7 #CRISPresearch analysts recommend developing plans to create wealth-building opportunities for people in groups that have historically been kept on the margins of the economy. To do that, leaders first need to assess & eliminate policies that reinforce economic disparities.

Dear Democrats:

Your plan to transform schools into woke indoctrination camps is backfiring.

Parents “woke up” to your #equity, #CRT, and other Marxist-driven racism and nonsense.

And ⁦@UnsilencedOrg⁩’s ⁦@iandprior⁩ is the tip of the spear. nytimes.com/2021/06/01/us/…
Dear Democrats:

Racial discrimination almost always violates federal law.

This includes #equity and #CRT, Marxist-driven garbage that unabashedly promotes racial discrimination.

Don’t believe me?

Read this decision by Judge Amul Thapar from last week:

Dear House and Senate Republicans:

@SecBlinken ordered all American embassies and consulates to fly the flag of a domestic-terrorism organization founded by self-described “trained Marxists.”

Where are your calls for his resignation?
If our elected Republicans are going to go-along-to-get-along with Marxism-lite, primary their asses. Stay home.

Cultural Marxism is the red line.

If they don’t start speaking up—loudly—against #equity, #CRT, #BLM, and other racist woke nonsense, they don’t deserve our support.
On Tuesday morning, *call* (don’t email) both of your home-state senators, along with your House representative.

Demand that they condemn @SecBlinken, @POTUS @JoeBiden’s Secretary of State, for flying #BLM flags above all American embassies and consulates.usa.gov/elected-offici…

Our most vulnerable not provided a safe place to learn; otherwise healthy children sacrificing their own #mentalhealth, bearing the burden of protecting the lives of their vulnerable/high-risk loved ones... 2/
