Economics is primarily a way of thinking about the world that uncovers the true mechanisms and processes behind, and helps us understand, what we can all observe. This is a forever thread collecting my #econthread tweets. #PerBylundthreads

"There has been a clear spike in #online shopping, and #retail #analysts are wondering whether this is a #decisive #move into the #virtual world, and the further #dominance of big #corporations."

Please tell the analysts that the answer is yes.
"Keeping us distracted as we wait at home for our parcels is the streaming #entertainment industry – a market sector which is dominated by big corporations including #Netflix, #Amazon Prime (again), #Disney and and others."

1. The American necropolitical system and the death of a thousand cuts.

I am halfway through writing a book on #suicide and training focused on understanding suicide.

2. The medicalized version of #suicide, according to which suicide is a manifestation of mental illness and, therefore, tautologically, suicides are predominantly caused by mental illness is logically and empirically false and I am providing evidence for my argument.
3. The current increase in self-destructive deaths which include deaths that don't end up as suicides in public statistics is a result of the intensification of American #necropolitics.

India is a land of unique monopolies....
Even though there are so many "competitors" in every sector, there is a consistent market share #monopoly/#duopoly in most sectors or particular segments of those sectors!
Some very prominent examples are...


Organized Paint Industry
Duopoly - 59%

Asian Paints - 42%
Berger Paints - 17%

(appx values)

Telecom Industry
Duopoly - 62% & rising

Jio - 34%
Airtel - 28%

Vodafone has 28% as of now but every month it loses out subscribers at a fast pace to Jio & Airtel

Social Engineering Attack Coordinated With Soros’ NGOs & Fake “Anonymous” Accounts That Goes Beyond Antitrust Issues Into “Large Scale Covert Election Interference”

@POTUS @GenFlynn @WokeFakeNews
“Timeline: January 7-9, 2020
Social engineering attack on current situation in Iran/Iraq. A day after Trump killed Suleimani, videos started popping up of people burning Suleimani posters & celebrating in the streets. Then, after Iraqi parliament votes to remove American
troops from Iraq (Retrospective: Iraq never followed through with forcing troops out) the following hashtag started trending: #Iraqi_parliament_does_not_represent_us (huge opposition still going on currently)...

America has a #monopoly problem, and the COVID pandemic is likely going to make it worse as companies fail.

Yet, incredibly, @SEC_News proceeds today to finalize a rule DECREASING the amount of disclosure that the merging companies provide to investors.…
@SEC_News Like the enforcement attorney she is, @SECHerrenLee rightly shreds this final rule.

She starts with the basics.

Cutting 3 years of financial information down to 2 years, when one of the years is potentially COVID--how can that not be a massive loss of insight for investors.
She puts it politely:

"The issue of reduced perspective in the face of anomalous or uncertain financial results is not even identified, much less analyzed in the release."

Translation: The SEC has steamrolled investors.

@ScottMorrisonMP @AlboMP @abcnews @andrewprobyn @vanOnselenP #ScottyFromMarketing You've got to be kidding? You were expected to 'Clarify' the actions, decisions & recommendations of the #NationalCabinet". Well mate, you need better #SpeechWriters, cos it was another #EpicFail!
How can you claim to have a fully Representative #NationalCabinet without inviting ALL #Federal #Political parties to the table? @AlboMP & @AustralianLabor must be a part of your deliberations & represented directly in this forum.
All #StandingOrders & #Legislation unrelated to #CORVID19 in both Federal Houses should be suspended until this crisis is under control. #auspol

1. This thread is for YOU. Consider reading if you want to EASILY understand why there is unprecedented, worldwide, mass confinement and quarantine going on around the world.
2. Since JFK's death in 1963 there has been a massive, hidden criminal conspiracy running our world.

Many world's leaders have been compromised to do the bidding of the ultra-rich and ruling class. We are ALL but mere pawns in their game of #Monopoly.
3. Consider using this free time you have to educate yourself on WHO the criminals we are fighting really are by watching this fascinating documentary that exposes their satanic plan to rule over us... #EverythingIsARichMansTrick!

Wow. A stunningly irresponsible move.

Precisely when investors, regulators & public need MORE information--about climate, tax, workers, pol spending, more--to EFFECTIVELY ALLOCATE CAPITAL, this deregulation seeks to expand the public markets off-ramp.
A dramatic expansion of private offerings is a giant move in the wrong direction for capital markets. Privatizing capital markets undermines the effectiveness of these markets at allocating capital to efficient economic ends, puts investors & economic growth in serious jeopardy.
Good for SEC Commissioner Allison Lee to clearly lay down the marker and say NO. There is no data to support this move. There is no logic to support this move.

Less information. Less accountability. Less efficient capital formation.

This is your daily pension update: Doing some lapps edition.
Below you can go and download the just released LAPP Newsletter. One version for actives members and another for retirees. Or, I will save you the trouble and reproduce the naughty bits here.…
In the wry observation of a pension war room staff member:
"We received the following info in LAPP News, which until lately had been very reassuring reads!" Until lately indeed!
#ABEd #ABLeg #handsoffmypension
The first naughty bit directly from CEO Chris Brown: "We began 2019 with great expectations because legislation was passed in 2018 to recognize LAPP as a jointly-sponsored pension plan, beginning March 1, 2019."

Yeah, don't anyone hold their breath. #othershoewilldrop

Siedler von Catan ist, neben #Monopoly _das_ kapitalistische Brettspiel, zumindest im deutschsprachigen Raum. Ein Bestseller und "Spiel des Jahres" 1988 und folgende. Besonders die "Erweiterung Seefahrer" fordert ein Planspiel der Konkurrenz, des Austricksens, der Expansion
kolonialer Art im Gaming zu genießen. Es werden Länder entdeckt, Seerouten gemacht, Städte gebaut, Rohstoffe vernutzt und als Kapital für Kredite bei der Bank eingezahlt. Der Genuß des Gewinnens gegen die anderen liegt aber nicht "in" der Amygdala oder im psychologischen
Belohnungsprinzip. Er liegt zuforderst in der Abrufung genau der gefragten Verhältnisse und strukturellen Verläufe des Kapitalismus, die für sein Charakteristikum, die Akkumulation, kennzeichnend sind. Spielerinnen spielen für das Erreichen einer Punktzahl und nutzen dafür die

A thread on the #Labour Labour Party's #BroadbandForAll policy. There are three elements: 1; #zero price #freebroadband, (2) #Nationalisation and (3) #monopoly.
Zero Price. One argument for zero price is that there are positive externalities and network effects for bringing everybody to the same high level service. A second is And that leaving poorer citizens and lower margin business behind is less inclusive.
Clearly charging those who can afford would make it less costly to the taxpayer, and be less regressive, but it is messy. But surely over time that would emerge? And behavioural insights might help design 100% take up with mostly positive pricing.

What if I told you that #BigTech and #SocialMedia platforms are manipulating you, steering you toward #Health information that they think is right, rather than letting you evaluate content for yourself?

Commentary by @MaryamHenein (Thread 👇)…
Accredited professionals, meanwhile, who stand for #Health freedom and who criticize Big Anything, are losing posting privileges, getting banned, being buried, finding themselves deranked, and getting digitally assassinated.
Content is literally disappearing from the Internet along with our #Health choices.

It sounds conspiratorial because it is. Independent #Journalists and health experts are blowing the whistle. But it’s become a silent one.

People have an emotional dislike for monopolies that is rather uncalled for. It is not the fact that there is one seller, the definition of #monopoly, that is problematic, but the reason there is only one--which affects the behavior of that one. There are, generally speaking, two
types of monopoly: one that is created by or arises out of limitations imposed on the economy, and one that is due to superior value creation. The former is the kind that we should be repulsed by, because such monopolists can indeed take advantage of the consumer. The latter is
very different. We tend to think of monopolies only in the former sense because those were common historically: the king granted some feudal lord or firm the sole right to a market, because of guilds controlling an industry in a town. This is also how monopoly theory in economics
