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.

(Thread) Hey #AcademicTwitter 👋 As an academic-turned-public servant I have some tips to help your research inform policy. #scicomm #policy
Today's a typical day in government: I have 2 hours to finalize an important funding proposal in between 6 meetings. I need the most impactful, up-to-date and forward-thinking research findings at my fingertips and distilled into mere sentences.
Usually public servants who have a role in decision making have very limited time. We can rarely read academic papers.

My take on @ivanlpenn's & @ckrausss's @nytimes: nytimes.com/2021/07/11/bus…
TL;DR: #transmission (trX) vs. rooftop #PV (rPV) dilemma = unfounded, poorly scoped article, misrepresented study, romanticized rPV, pessimistic trX, obsolete #energy policy references & more! -1/n
First of all, rPV & trX are largely UNRELATED. rPV increase energy #efficiency & (might) offer #energy #resilience . trX reduces energy costs, increases #reliability & expands access to electricity market for all. -2/n
An important aspect is that rPV comes mostly at personal high upfront costs, while trX investments are "socialized". I.e. rPV is not for everyone, while trX is driven by broader energy concerns of wide social impact. Here is the article's first miss!.. 👇 -3/n

#Thread Services - *ASPECTS*

#Familiarity

Police ,Foreign ,Forest ,Revenue, Administration, Railway - are some of the services with which there exists an amount of familiarity amongst the aspirants & public.

(1/n)
But there are many other services that perform very crucial functions which needs highlighting.

Most notably, (for eg.)

Indian Information Service #communication
Indian Statistical Service #data
Indian Economic Service #policy

#Domination

Many a times, certain Services try to dominate others by the virtue of

1. Political proximity
2. Scope of Functioning
3. de facto postings/positions
4. Public image
5.Service benefits ( promotion, increment, deputation opportunity etc)

In our latest @BlackRock Market Insights commentary we argue that #inflation’s role in the #economic order can be misinterpreted, and therefore that #policy seeking to achieve positive ends can ironically become the means by which those ends are undone: bit.ly/3fyLn4O
Today, policymakers face a set of increasingly critical choices that could end up shaping our quality of life for a generation. Changes to the #Fed’s #inflation framework, without being fully debated, may ironically end up exacerbating the very problems they seek to alleviate.
One might paraphrase the #Fed mandate of full employment and stable prices as being intended “to preserve the purchasing power of as many as possible” – or, to create the best quality of life for the community. So, how do varying levels of #inflation impact that mandate?

There's a bunch of people trying to reboot the #WhatsApp #Policy fake news hysteria, so here's a recap of what it actually is about:

Because encryption is under a threat from government forces, and they are doing everything they can to besmirch the reputation of both encryption in general, and anyone who is attempting to deploy it.

#RealInvestmentReport is out!
Despite the expected #surge in #inflation early in the week, #bulls picked themselves up to rally #stocks into Friday. We discuss the potential for a short-term #bounce, why the #Fed will make a #mistake, and #postioning now.
realinvestmentadvice.com/despite-surgin…
#LessonLearned - don't anticipate the turn in your #technicalsignals. As noted last week, it "seemed" the signal had turned, but it didn't. The #signal is very #oversold, so set up for a short-term #bounce is likely. Caution is still advised for now.

If we are #correct in our assessment about the roll-off #effect of #stimulus and #liquidity, we could well see #bonds outperform #stocks in 2022. We are watching very closely as we currently hold minimal duration in our fixed-income #portfolios.

Okay, I love @POTUS #CaregiverInChief but lowering drug prices is a complicated economic web — healthcare isn’t something that you pay for like a new car, it’s mediated by a third party 1/x #drugprices #pharma #medicare #medicaid
Take International Reference Pricing for example. (Lost you already, haven’t I?) This type of negotiation tool ties drug prices to caps set using “QALYs” - Quality Adjusted Life Years 2/ #health #pharma #medicine #innovation #caregiving #advocacy statnews.com/2019/02/22/qal…
3/ Don’t get me wrong - #health care needs to be affordable & #accessible & costs should be accessible. But tying access to medicines based on the economic “value” of a person’s life unfairly discriminated against older #adults & ppl w/ #disabilities, see ncd.gov/sites/default/…

Word “racism” silenced, actively, by #MedEd #MedTwitter #healthcare#professionalism” & “communication” labels

Saying “racism” offends or “hurts feelings” > actual #BLM deaths

If #professionalism itself is racist -makes sense that word suppressed
@FutureDocs
What @ayshakhoury experienced pushes out & silences many

If the editors of @JAMA_current resist hearing word “structural racism” then they certainly are not publishing papers using that word
