What are the implications of excess global financial market volatility on economic growth? Are there threshold effects in the relationship between growth & excess global volatility for individual countries? How should we model the nonlinear effects in a multi-country setting? 1/n
We answer these questions in recent work with Alexander Chudik @DallasFed, M Hashem Pesaran @USCDornsife @TrinCollCam, @mraissi80 @IMFNews & @arebucci1 @JHUCarey @cepr_org @nberpubs:… #TGVAR 2/n
The #Covid19 #pandemic has been a shock like no other, initiating simultaneous demand and supply disruptions. In addition, it led to a sharp tightening in global #financial market conditions during the first quarter of 2020. 3/n Image

In a recent paper, with Alexander Chudik @DallasFed, M Hashem Pesaran @USCDornsife, @mraissi80 @IMFNews & @arebucci1 @JHUCarey, we develop a threshold-augmented dynamic multi-country model (#TGVAR) to quantify the #macroeconomic effects of #Covid19:… 1/n Image
Key challenges with the empirical #economic analysis of #Covid19 include the following: how to identify the shock, how to account for its non-linear effects, & how to quantify its effects while accounting for spillovers, common global factors, network effects and uncertainty. 2/n
We contribute to the literature by addressing these issues in a coherent multi-country framework. We offer an identification strategy for the #Covid19 shock considering that a synthetic control method cannot be applied in the context of a global #pandemic. 3/n

1/x A great study:

#Predicting #Infectious #SARSCOV2 From [PCR] #Diagnostic #Samples

FYI only @carlheneghan


“ Methods
...#RT_PCR_confirmed #positive samples’ ...ability to infect Vero cell lines [was determined].” >…
2/x con’t

“...90 #RT_PCR #positive #samples were #incubated on Vero cells

26 samples (ie 26/90= 28.9%)
demonstrated viral growth

#NOT 100.0% !]

...There was #NO [viral] growth in samples with a [cycle threshold] Ct > 24
[symptom onset to test] STT > 8 days.” >
3/x con’t

SARS-CoV-2 Vero cell infectivity was #ONLY observed for RT-PCR Ct<24 and STT < 8 days.

Infectivity of patients with Ct>24 and duration of symptoms > 8 days may be #LOW.

This info can inform public health policy and guide clinical, #INFECTION_CONTROL..” >

'Pulling #consumption forward' is an unhelpful euphemism for 'engaging in #capital consumption': more graphically, 'writing cheques the people can't cash'.
Self-sustaining #growth requires coherence between consumption & production not just today, but over time.
1/x #centralbanks
That latter is difficult enough to achieve without #centralbankers & policy-makers in general trying to impose their own vision of the balance (one always narrowly biased to the present) on a system composed of billions of interacting needs & preferences.
The unavoidable (Rumsfeldian) uncertainty -as well as the calculable risks- is made much greater when every fluctuation today -itself a direct result of IN-coherence, largely inflicted from above- is greeted with yet another blunt-force trauma assault on the capital structure

The #FOMC today began the process of “operationalizing” the average inflation targeting framework that Chair #Powell first laid out in his Jackson Hole, WY, Economic Policy Conference speech: including new guidance on how long #policy rates can be expected to remain near zero.
Specifically, policy #rates will remain at current levels “until #labor market conditions have reached levels consistent with the Committee's assessments of maximum #employment and #inflation has risen to 2 percent and is on track to moderately exceed 2 percent for some time.”
Still, we’re skeptical about the achievability of this #inflation goal when the #disinflationary influences of technological #innovation and the #demographic trend of #population aging arguably hold a greater impact on the rate of inflation than central bank #policy does.

A tremendous amount of ink has been spilled discussing the supposed quandary of the #equity market’s robust recovery since March, while at the same time #economic improvement has been more uneven and uncertain.
At the heart of this misunderstanding is an apples-to-oranges comparison: the fact is that the #stock #market and the #economy, while connected, are two meaningfully distinct entities.
As a case in point, the correlation between domestic corporate #profits and #GDP #growth collapsed in the 1990s and has hovered near zero for the past three decades. Image

Encouragingly, this morning’s #JobsReport witnessed not only solid job gains, with 1.37 million #jobs added, but also a drop in the #unemployment rate to single digits, at 8.4%, which is a psychologically meaningful threshold to breach.
Still, great perspective is required when situating this #data in proper context. The #unemployment rate is still resting too close to double digits, and many #businesses will not recover their footing for years to come, if ever.
Additionally, the sectors of the #economy that were responsible for much of the past decade’s #job gains (travel, #leisure and entertainment) will be slower to come back and may be years away from recovering.

1-Today we shall continue to dive deeper into the aspects of #Past #Life #Astrology.

And the very first word that comes to mind is #Karma.

#Karma is actually a poorly understood term.

Most people think of Karma and might think of punishment and retribution. (1/25)
2-The fact is Karma is like a #Cosmic, ongoing, Instruction Design of God.

Karma is rather concerned with #Evolution and #Growth.

@BabaRamDass used to often say, “May be the #Law of #Karma itself is #God” (2/25)

3-Just like Ether, Karma is all-embracing and has a myriad of #Manifestations

The #Cosmos operates at different levels of #Karma –from Personal Karma to the Karma of entire nations or communities. (3/25)

Thanks to @GeoffCutmore & @cnbcKaren for having me on the show this morning.

Here's a short thread of the notes - entitled, "Time to Get Real?" - which I put together in preparation.
They should hopefully be self-explanatory:-

#SquawkBox #CNBC #macro #equities #commodities
You've heard it here before: pay out or pay down is a big part of the #inflation equation:-
Yes, there's a "V" - or at least a flipped square root sign - underway, but will it extend far enough & fast enough?

As we move to the new academic year, our focus @councilofdeans continues to be on ensuring high quality education outcomes for #healthcare students. This is in the context of government priorities for growth, a pandemic and winter pressures.
Five key asks we are discussing with ministers and wider university sector colleagues this week:
1. Capital investment in university infrastructure, digital innovation and academic staffing to include joint posts between academia and service.
2. Regulatory flexibility around hours and stronger focus on education outcomes. Short term plan: focus on simulation and examples of best practice. Long term plan: tranform education from hours and process to competence and outcomes.

Valuation: It’s a contested issue in the market. Are stocks as divorced from fundamentals as many say? This chart shows that’s a fair point. While the #SPX is up 50% from the low, the NTM P/E multiple has almost doubled. Image
But, in my view, the bearish P/E argument misses something important: At bottoms, price usually leads #earnings. So there are going to be periods where price goes up while earnings still go down which, mathematically, leads to a rising P/E ratio.
The same thing happened in 2009 after the GFC bottom. Look: an analog of the inflation-adjusted #SP500 index now & back then. Bottom panel: Earnings as measured from the price low—not the earnings low. Back in ’09, EPS fell another 5% after the #SPX bottomed on March 9. Image

I’ve now finished my reading on 🇹🇼 🇯🇵 🇨🇳 🇰🇷

What have I learnt?

Growth & urbanisation erode gender inequalities

Militant activism fosters feminist activism, eg SK vs J

Long work days may be key to economic catch-up but (absent affordable childcare) reinforce gender pay gaps.
If asked to predict the next 20 years:

🇹🇼 is in a positive feedback loop & will converge with Europe

🇰🇷 feminist activism will enable more gains, eg on GBV & family policy

🇨🇳‘s gender pay gap will fall with growth, tho crackdowns on activism curb rights

🇯🇵 seems quite trapped
So on the global gender rankings, I expect:

🇯🇵 to fall down - due to long work days, gender pay gaps, weak civil society, minimal activism.

🇨🇳 will reverse its recent descent, economically

🇰🇷 should go up, no longer on par with 🇯🇵

🇹🇼 might be top 15.

.@PikaGoldin was right! FLFP has a U, even in China!

With marketisation, gender pay gaps increased.

But now it's closing, due to #StructuralTransformation & rising demand for white collar jobs in China

#thread Image
Until now, all the econ papers on China said that gender wage gaps were increasing due to #marketisation.

Gender wage gaps were higher in more marketised regions, & over time.


Omitted variable bias!! 👻👻👻

What about the stage of structural transformation...?
Capital-intensive manufacturing companies sought men as reliable workers

Construction boomed also

So even if men only had primary education, they still capitalised on rapid industrialisation, construction, & marketisation

Another #tech bubble? There’s a lot of talk about the FANG mega-cap #growth companies leading the market, just like 2000. The #tech companies’ narrow leadership of the #SPX is a big reason perma-bears are hating on the #market. Right or wrong? Let’s take a closer look. (THREAD)
1/ In 1999 I did a deep dive on the top darling stocks to compare the lopsided leadership of the late 1990s to the early to mid-1970s. Earlier, during the 1960s, the cyclical #bullmarket from Oct. 1966 to Nov. 1968 produced a huge bubble in retail speculation.
2/ #Tech & space companies were big favorites. Then came the #recession of 1970 & a painful bear market that wiped out speculators. During that decline & recovery, institutional investors dominated the #stockmarket & were buying tried-and-true stocks with bulletproof #earnings.

In the first of a four-part series on India's #growth challenge, @KwatraNikita and I look back at India's growth record since early '80s, and show why getting growth back on track is essential to tackle the country's most difficult problems.
#PlainFacts… Image
Everybody agrees that this year will be exceptionally bad for growth. But beyond that period, will we know for sure if growth is seeing a sharp rebound or faltering?
We examine this question in the second part of the series.

In the third part of the series, we look at India's oft-neglected deficits in social infrastructure, which sap productivity, hurt #growth.
(The idea for the graphic came from a similar Ind-China comparison by @CafeEconomics years ago for #PlainFacts).… Image
