Speeches are an important element of central bank communication. After two years at the @ecb’s Executive Board, I would like to present a selection of the most relevant of my (more than 30) speeches in a long thread🧵. 1/18
There are several categories of speeches: (1) on #MonetaryPolicy, explaining current policy considerations, (2) on #Narratives about monetary policy, and on the relationship of monetary policy & (3) #FiscalPolicy, (4) #FinancialStability, (5) #Inequality, (6) #ClimateChange. 2/18
#MonetaryPolicy: There are too many speeches to list them all, so let me select a few: on the ECB’s response to the pandemic (6 Apr 2020), mentioning (AFAIK) the concept of the euro area GDP-weighted yield curve for the first time: 3/18 ecb.europa.eu/press/key/date…

Perceptions of #inequality: 🇲🇽🇧🇷🇺🇸🇿🇦

A report from @AFD_France lays out one of the biggest problems for people interested in reducing #inequalities: Inaccurate public #perception of the problem.

“The research finds that individuals have a relatively accurate perception of #poverty, but they substantially overestimate the prevalence of #affluence."

This research shows that people struggle to understand the extent and the depth of the #economic gulfs between us.

The fantasy that people can bootstrap their circumstances and achieve some sort of affluent Dream - as has been shown repeatedly - is a myth reinforced by selective, highly publicized examples.

Sometime in the past, read 15 years ago and re-calling on my senior role experience, I was hired to be an interim manager (temporary crisis control manager). In a semi-governmental organisation that needed to deal with austerity measures, policy changes, and non-conforming staff.
They gave me six months to analyse risks, write a proposal, consult on, and implement said proposals. The first few months, because I managed to play 'the being an outsider card', everybody was my friend. The following months, when in the process of writing the proposal different
concerning parties tried to influence me into adding their opinions and trying to secure to their jobs. Which did not always go down well, to an extent that I was berated, bullied and sometimes hated. Even sitting management and board members made their sometimes strong argument.

Our #narratives on theology, nationalism, wars, economics, philosophy, logic, methodology, sociology, history and anthropology, shall determine the amount of #complexity that exists within an #ecosystem, such as a society or something bigger which takes on the mantle of a state.
what sustains an Open Society based on Bourgeoisie Sentiments?

That is what will make us understand the notion of #pertification in a complex, agile, and adaptative ecosystem that consists of living organisms.
the greater the diversity of views, the more complex the national narratives shall become, leading to a greater demand among the intelligentsia to curb liberal thinking and individual freedoms.
Hence, higher complexity shall lead to society and its planners to impose controls!

News Analysis🔎The post-#Election push to pressure President Trump to concede, despite numerous credible allegations of #VoterFraud and ongoing legal challenges, is the culmination of a 4-year-long campaign against him. (Thread👇) theepochtimes.com/infographic-th…
This campaign started in 2016 when the #FBI launched a politically motivated investigation of his campaign. During his subsequent 4 years in office, there have been consistent efforts to remove him from office.
#Infographic: an overview of some of the main efforts made against the sitting @POTUS.

This is an issue that transcends party lines, as it is not only an assault on Trump, but an assault on the office of the presidency, and with it, an assault on the foundation of America.

This is going to be one of my most important threads.

On Oct 24 2020 we analyzed the Rockefeller Foundation "Message Handbook - #Covid19 Testing & #Tracing, Sept 2020".

This thread examines the #UN [Share] Verified Guide to COVID-19 #Vaccine Communications (released Nov 18). Image
Before we begin, we need to understand who/what [Share] Verified is. Self-described as "the biggest team the world has ever seen" Verified is #Purpose PR firm (sister org of #Avaaz) partnered w/ #UN, #Luminate (#Omidyar) & #Ikea. Image
[Share] Verified "Collaborators" include #WorldBank, #Facebook, #Twitter, #TikTok, etc.

"Verified works with the support of #Luminate, #IKEA Foundation & UN Foundation & partners all over the world." ImageImageImageImage

More explicitly #cherrypicked #GPT3 output presented as somehow 'meaningful' text.

*sigh*

HINT: the #AI wasn't "advancing" any sort of argument, in any of the 8 runs @guardian editors chose to mix'n'match.

Read Searle & the #ChineseRoom!
theguardian.com/commentisfree/… ImageImage
And then there's this:



Which you might hope a good (human!) editor would've picked up, and contextualised.
And an even more powerful point, building on the argument Olivia makes about #narratives:



While it's one thing for a #BadAlgorithm to spout patent nonsense, it's entirely another for those creating such things to do the same.

... at the edge of a parking lot in an industrial park type complex.

This is how narratives are shaped. Image
I was sitting in my car after an appointment today and about to start a longer phone call when I spotted these benches among the trees at the edge of the parking lot.

A minute walk later and I was sitting in #nature for my call.

"The @WFP spokesperson told @Devex “...Some people find it inspirational & it motivates them to become committed supporters to the organisation.”

Bullshit. Donors do not find it inspirational. Their guilt, pity & shame are used like cash machines. devex.com/news/world-foo… /1
Must we say it about #povertyporn yet again?

Yes we must:

Charitable portrayals of “helping” often conjure up victimhood and passivity in order to validate the assistance being given. #devcomms #comms4dev #comms4good #fundraising /2
There is a growing awareness that these portrayals uphold - rather than counteract - historical, deeply colonial, and continually politicized notions of “the other.”

And it is not ok. /3

Text-based data sources like #narratives and stories have become increasingly popular in providing critical insight in #energy research and social sciences in general. 1/n
However, in many cases their implications in #policy application usually remain superficial and fail to fully exploit state-of-the-art resources which digital era holds for text based analysis. 2/n
We (@RamitDebnath @ChurchillCol, Sarah Darby @ecioxford, @ronitabardhan @Selwyn1882 & Minna Sunikka-Blank @arch_cambridge) illustrate the potential of deep-narrative analysis in #energy policy research using tools from the cutting-edge domain of computational social sciences. 3/n

👇🧠⚡Thread on new #InformationWarfare #narratives: Many are wondering about the latest development: #Helsinkisummit, #Putin’s visit, #Trump’s open support of #Russia, etc. Is he insane? No. Russian psychological war manuals are hard to find. The sum up of the latest strategy:
A new strategy: Brainwashing Trump’s base and the rest of the society into whitewashing and normalizing Putin’s Russia. The new narrative is “Yes, Trump works with Putin. It is perfectly normal. Russia is a friend. Putin is good. Thank you, Russia, for helping Trump.”
This is how it is achieved—in the broad daylight. (The silence of the press does not help.)
