While the "numbers" are plummeting & horror news about #India has fallen silent, some media flood us with news that 🇮🇳#Ivermectin has been removed from the list of #Covid_19-#therapeutics.

I don’t suppose you’ve ever made a mistake?
“Why would you ask that?”
Because I’ve just made one.
“Ah, I see… And you don’t like making mistakes, do you?”
No.
“Want to tell me?”
No.
“Are you sure?”
I’m sure.

It’s…
It’s something you said.
You made me realise something.
“I’m sorry. I wouldn’t have intended–”
You said, “Is it ethical to have so many enemies? Is it ethical to see so many people as ‘enemies of the people’?”
“I said that–but that doesn’t mean– ”
But you were right.
2/35
I like to think I’m strong on ethics… So what you said was quite a challenge. It hit me where it hurts. Right on target.
A kill shot.

Quelques remarques sur la théorie néo-classique du (supposé) #marché du #travail. Chaque année, quand on aborde cette #modélisation avec les élèves, les mêmes erreurs d'interprétations (bien compréhensibles) se rencontrent. #Thread 1/22
Le modèle canonique explique que la #demande de travail des entreprises (= les offres d'emplois, la demande de bras) diminue quand le niveau de #salaire horaire réel (hors inflation) augmente, ce qui permet de tracer une belle courbe descendante sur un repère Prix/Quantités. 2/22
Au passage, attention à la lecture de ce type de graphique néo-classique, hérité de Fleeming Jenkin, 1870. Notre #cerveau a du mal à comprendre que ce qui est à gauche sur l'#abscisse représente… une petite quantité.
Et que ce qui est à droite … est une grande quantité. 3/22

#BigPicture: #Platforms are key to $AXXA ‘s #RevenueGrowth and #AssetDiversification #strategies.
2/ $AXXA ‘s management team seeks to acquire technologies that can be #repurposed in order to generate new revenue streams. Repurposed #technology may not even be used in the same #sector or #market it was originally developed for.

Aujourd’hui, j’ai un peu de #temps (je blague), et je tente un #thread #scpo sur la #démocratie, parce que c’est un tout petit peu d‘actualité. Et oui, je vais mettre des #mèmes Internet parce que, en vrai autocrate, je trouve cela très très drôle. Prêts ?
2) D’abord, la #démocratie, ce n’est pas la #République (la chose publique). La République, c’est moi...euh, c’est quand le #pouvoir est exercé par tout ou partie du peuple (exit la monarchie) et que les élus représentent plus que le peuple (la #Nation dixit #Sieyes).
3) Les #députés représentent l’intérêt #général plus que le peuple. Utile pour voter une loi impopulaire, comme l’interdiction de la peine de mort (#Badinter), ou la taxe carbone sur l’essence. Encore faut-il bien prouver l’intérêt général (n’est ce pas les gilets jaunes ?).

If there’s one country where Supreme Court justices matter, it is the U.S. And it’s not because they are better lawyers than anywhere else. It’s because (a) SCOTUS decisions heavily influence all aspects of American life; (b) judges rule mainly (but not always) based on ideology. Image
Whether a judge is “liberal” or “conservative” matters in their interpretations of voting rights, healthcare, pro-life or pro-abortion positions of American women, legal rights and responsibilities of business corporations,the environment, and much more. #RuleofLaw #Institutions
In Nigeria, the Supreme Court matters greatly for politicians far more than the average Nigerian, as in, they determine election outcomes, including who your Governor is!

Yawn.

Precision medicine, AI diagnostics & "global mining" of medical data; personalised education & AI tuition(!) when you could've had the world-class content online FOR FREE since the late 90s; 5G for digital inclusion - if you have a new smartphone... progress.substack.com/p/the-new-prog…
...and then channelling Dom et al. on "light-touch" regulation... in fact, fuck it! let's "simply start over". Plus ARPA(s) - though is "emphatically not a general model for running a country" really enough clear blue water?

The thing is, bits of this aren't wrong: certainly...
...the shift to net-zero, #sustainable energy; the need to (re)make #institutions fit for the 21st (and 22nd & 23rd...) century; also deciding, #democratically, what a good REALLY means for a '#DigitalWellbeingState'.

What really worries me, though, is the inherent glibness...

Simon touches on a key point in his first item.

As with #falsifiability in #science, in #practice '#ethics' only work in the context of a #profession or #community *from which one can be #excluded*.

Those wishing to be #trusted as #ethical must stop issuing '#principles' and...
..setting up #EthicsBoards like @Google's or private courts like @Facebook's @OversightBoard (both demonstrating how poorly #BigTech grasps basic concepts like #justice, let alone #ethics, and how both - as #sovereign powers - have utterly misconceived #community) and start to...
...genuinely #professionalise.

Not in the shitty, self-serving, #cartel-like fashion of many companies & industry bodies in tech, advertising - and yes, DP & privacy - but in broader, deeper, more #connected ways that *could* deliver the #trustworthy #institutions of the future.

#Innovation not Imitation is an essential key to prosperity. To keep innovation up and flowing, you reach out to many people - #Inclusion and to keep the them innovating, you keep the #Incentives up. To protect and keep this system agile, you need strong #Institutions.
Societies that have grown prosperous have relied on this model. I deliberately started at innovation, truth though is: the institutions create the incentives for innovation which then ensures to take an inclusive path.
If we will ever have the Nigeria or indeed a prosperous Africa, we must change from our worship and adulation of strong men and replace them with stronger institutions. A framework that ensures those who lead are held accountable.

A month after holes in a key database used in GDP estimation were first exposed, the controversy around #India's GDP #data and statistical system has only grown. This #thread is a summary of some answers and many questions on this issue #stats #institutions #economy (1/n)
The latest to question the new GDP series is the former CEA @arvindsubraman who was also among the first to question the new series numbers when they first came out in 2015 (2/n)
His main contention, then and now, is that the new series fails to tally with other economic indicators. Others also have made this point but his recent paper (hks.harvard.edu/centers/cid/pu…) is the most systematic demonstration of that issue (3/n)

Okay guys... here we go... wish me luck. #puppetgate #allinarowplay #livetweet #amreading #ActuallyAutistic

Image Description: a copy of the play “All in a Row” lying on a blue pillow.
TW: #puppetgate

Okay, let’s start with the cover. My husband pointed out that the image has three upright cakes neatly lined up and the one blue cake that is fallen over. I assume that since there are four characters, the blue one is the autistic character. Out of place.
TW: #PuppetGate

Next you have big bios of all the cast and crew. Then there’s a two page preface written by Alex Oates and by golly he is TRYING. He uses identity first language (brownie points for that) and tries to explain everything including the puppet.

This is a great, thought-provoking speech by #Draghi, on European sovereignty. Though I disagree with some parts, the final part on “rules vs. institutions” is excellent. A thread. ecb.europa.eu/press/key/date…
Draghi starts out with the alleged conflict between EU membership and #sovereignty, which is crucial to understand the populism of #Brexit, Le Pen et al. He says: no conflict at all, to the contrary.
“True #sovereignty is reflected not in the power of making laws – as a legal definition would have it – but in the ability to control #outcomes … The ability to make independent decisions does not guarantee countries such control,” says Draghi.

#Growth still looks quite good for most, notable upgrades this time for #Poland, #Serbia, #Hungary. But downgrades for several #EU members, plus #Turkey, #Macedonia and #Belarus. 2/13
Over the #forecast period we expect best growth performance in #EUCEE and #WesternBalkans, although both will slow by 2020. Outlook for #CIS & #Ukraine weaker. 3/13
