“Some don’t work. It’s very important to find out at an early stage which ones they are.” This was particularly the case where “someone overpaid for the land & think(s) they can get that money back from the council”

Let’s see what this means:
The #BuildToRent policy introduced by @MurphyEoghan & the SHD policy introduced by @simoncoveney didn’t “encourage developers to build more homes” they set up a framework where 1. more bad units could fit in any site & 2. 100+ unit schemes could skip normal planning processes.
This became a feeding frenzy. Developers and investment funds purchased large land banks in prime urban locations as the potential of fitting a lot of tiny rental units close to well served locations (big rents) meant land values went up up up.
It’s not rocket science.

Have you heard of @ipor_io, a new protocol bringing Interest Rate Swaps (#IRS) on-chain?

Let's explore the $450T IRS market and the opportunities for #hedging, #arbitrage, and #speculation!

What are Interest Rate Swaps (IRS)?

Simply put, it allows two parties to exchange the cash flows of one party’s fixed-rate loan for the other party’s floating-rate loan.
@ipor_io brings IRS on-chain through its three innovative products: IPOR Index, IPOR AMM, and Asset Management.
The IPOR Index reflects benchmark interest rates in DeFi and is freely available for integration into smart contracts.

[1/🧵] With all of the #XRPBuyback debate going on, there is one aspect that frequently gets misrepresented

▶️ People conflating the terms "#price" and "#value"

Because the definitions differ, it is essential to comprehend the distinctions

Let us evaluate it more closely. 👇🧵 Source:
[2/19] To have a better understanding of the subject, we must first define several terms that are crucial to #finance and explain the following in further detail:

🔹 "Price"
🔹 "Cost"
🔹 "Value"
🔹 "Store of Value" (#Bitcoin/#BTC)
🔹 "Internet of Value" (#Ripple) Source: Source:
[3/19] We will also go through the following scenarios to see whether what we think we are talking about is correct:

1⃣ The chart in reference to the #USD
2⃣ You are about to sell your #property Source:

#MMT #Thread on floating #FX
Flexible exchange rate policy is something a country grows into as it builds higher degrees of #resilience to external shocks via food/energy #sovereignty, high value-added industries & other institutional measures to fight #speculation #corruption..
and price gouging... So a higher degree of monetary sovereignty is something a country earns via strategic investments/regulations; it's not something you announce, float the currency, and hope for a miracle. All MMTers understand this.
I know this because I had this specific conversation with each one of the leading figures in the field. The fact that they don't emphasize this particular point in every argument they present is a matter of nuance/communication...

(1) Hey #StarshipAddicts...I have a feeling that a lot of you have heard various things here and there about possible issues with the #OrbitalTankFarm at the #Starbase launch complex. Check out this thread if you want the FULL story starting from the very first signs of trouble
(2) This is a break from my normal style, I'm going to tell you all a story.

At the end of May 2021, I took my first ever trip to Starbase as a treat to myself after quitting my job as an Engineer in the Oil & Gas industry.
(3) The moment my last shift came to and end, I got in my car and drove 10 hours straight with the intension of not stopping until I got to the #Starbase sign. I drove through a massive 4 hour rain storm that ended, right as the #Highbay came into view.

Finally! Ive been waiting for this thing to show up for 2 months. Searched high and low in @RGVaerialphotos photos 8 weeks straight hoping I would see signs of it before anyone else.

If you are confused at what this is or want to learn more about it check out the thread below
Before we start:

I had a feeling this would happen. It sucks to have to skip ahead in the Orbital Launch Mount series cuz its going to be impossible to keep the whole thing in one thread now. Might have to come up with a better way of organizing this stuff.

One more thing! Image
Should I post this entire explanation at one time? Or would yal rather see them as I finish each page?

I'll let yal decide while I grab some food. @RGVaerialphotos unexpected post forced me to skip lunch for this.

*FYI The first option will probably contain more errors*

#Starship addicts! Ever wondered how @SpaceX plans to deliver more than 1000 LOADS of cryo fluids to the Orbital Tank Farm?

Well, offloading 17 tankers simultaneously might speed things up! Check out this thread to see how it all works & preview some major changes to come! The white lines at the "parking lanes" represent p
1. Shown in the @RGVaerialphotos photo from above, there are (3) LOX, (2) LN2 tanks, and (2) CH4 tanks that need to be filled. There are (~12) stations/ports to offload LOX & (5) for CH4.

*LN2 is able to be offloaded at any of these ports which I will explain next.
2. Pretty common to see up to 3 tankers offloading these days at the OTF, as shown by @StarshipGazer .

Once complete, 17 offloading ports means you can have 34 trucks in rotation. Assuming a 90 minute offload time, there is an 11 tanker per hour capacity for the OTF currently. 3 Lox tankers offloading at the Orbital tank farm. Will be i

What can we learn from the 'global land rush' about the risks of large-scale land-based carbon removal in climate mitigation strategies?

A 🧵to put the numbers - like #Shell's reference to needing a new 700Mha forest - into some context
700Mha sounds a lot, & it is.

From 2000-2016 - during the 'global land rush' - @Land_Matrix documented contracted large-scale land deals covering c. 25Mha

That period tells us a lot about the risks of large-scale reliance on land for carbon removals
It was driven by financial #speculation, #biofuels policies and weak land tenure #rights, & has been associated with widespread dispossession, increasing land #inequality & #hunger

No surprise biofuels crops - palm oil, jatropha, sugar cane - accounted for the biggest land area

Specifically, we believe that exposure to an appropriate amount of submillimeter waves could accelerate the generation of a large number of cosmic ray muons inside the human body and that such cosmic ray muons could further facilitate cold nuclear fusion, which could reverse

C'est l'histoire d'une entreprise prometteuse qui décide de se financer en s'introduisant en bourse.

(Une histoire simplifiée pour expliquer les conséquences néfastes de la spéculation).

À dérouler...
Le fondateur de l'entreprise, Léon, est persuadé que son entreprise vaudra dans quelques années 10 millions d'euros. Mais en attendant cette valorisation de l'entreprise, Léon a besoin de la développer, et pour cela il a plusieurs choix.
Soit il va voir sa banque qui a peu de chance de lui prêter car son entreprise n'est pas encore rentable.
Soit il va trouver des investisseurs privés qui sont prêts à miser une petite pièce sur lui en espérant le pactole.
Soit il introduit son entreprise en bourse...

C'est un problème social massif en France : les loyers flambent, il est extrêmement compliqué de trouver un appartement, les centre-villes sont inhabitables, des centaines de personnes meurent à la rue chaque année.
C'est "la crise" du logement. Tout est fait pour que l'on s'y habitue, pour que l'on considère cette violence sociale qui touche la majorité de la population comme « normale ». Et pourtant, une étude révèle que :

1/9 La Banque Centrale Européenne, pressentant l’effondrement du #capitalisme face à la #pandémie, fabrique plein de billets pour que les capitalistes puissent engranger leurs dividendes, le #Medef exigeant des travailleurs des efforts pour combler les déficits liés au virus.
2/9 Depuis 2016 la #BCE propose aux banques des prêts à taux négatifs, les payant donc pour qu’elles empruntent, avec l’espoir, mais sans contrôle, que ces prêts profitent aux entreprises et aux particuliers, et pas à la #spéculation où sont pourtant les meilleurs gains !
3/9 La #BCE s’est engagée par ailleurs à #racheter sur les marchés financiers des #dettes d’entreprises et des dettes souveraines pour donner de l’oxygène aux banques avec encore l’espoir qu’elles prêtent de l’argent pour soutenir l’économie.

#Options vs #Futures

Although both are #derivatives, Futures and Options are entirely different in terms of their potential #risk and #return , #leverage and how they work.

How different are futures and options?
#Rights vs #Obligations

In #Futures Trading, both the buyer & the seller are #obligated to settle the contracts on or before expiry ie cover shorts or longs or rollover to next contract, regardless of how the underlying asset price moves.
With #Options the buyer has the #Right, but not the #Obligation, to buy (call option) or sell (put option) on underlying asset. The option seller is #passive and must comply with whatever the option buyer does.

Ten #MMT tips to remember on #TaxDay:
1. Federal #taxes don't fund federal spending, so let's #decouple these two important tools.
2. Taxes offset #Government spending.
3. It's a matter of #logic: #dollars must be spent into existence (by the Gov) first, in order for us to use some of those $ to pay taxes
4. #Taxing for #revenue is for local states/municipalities, not the #sovereign issuer of the #currency.
5. Taxing excessive wealth protects #democracy from #Oligarchy and protects us from abusive market power
6. Taxing #pollution & #speculation to reduce such activities, not to "fund" #healthcare and #education.
