1/ French President Emmanuel #Macron gave his fourth address to the nation of the #coronavirus epidemic this evening. It was the shortest of the four and mainly geared to the transition from the confinement imposed to halt #Covid19 to the rebuilding effort.
#France #deconfinement
2/ The president announced a few concrete measures: #Paris region becomes a "green" zone tomorrow, meaning bars and restaurants reopen their interiors. Only overseas Guyana and Mayotte remain "orange" zones. Schools to completely reopen on 22 June. Visits in care homes are ok.
3/ With the epidemic still on the wane five weeks into the gradual lifting of nationwide home #confinement, Macron heralded a "first victory" against the virus: we have won the first battle, but we have yet to win the war.

@JoeBiden Hey #JoeBiden, why don't you tell the #mayors and #governors of the #DemocraticParty to enforce #LawAndOrder

#Cuomo--governor of #NY State--#DeBlasio--mayor of #NYC--and others should be ashamed of themselves for allowing rampant #chaos to do material harm to their constituents
@JoeBiden This lackadaisical attitude combined with the now woefully obvious #lies spouted by almost every outlet of the #MainstreamMedia has pushed to become a FIRM supporter of the #TrumpAdministration.

I invite #Democrats and #Liberals to do their due diligence, #Trump acts on a plan
@JoeBiden Furthermore, the glaring weaknesses of the ineffective "#representatives" of the #DemocraticParty have shown us that most of these LINOs have only three approaches to any given problem:
1. Blame #Trump
2. Do Nothing
3. Use #Race to pretend they care about the #oppressed

Some Thoughts on the #PPPloans and other small business stimulus now that the funds have dried up (hopefully temporarily). Some overriding thoughts I have are 1. The method and some of the issues of getting funds out, 2. The purpose of the funds, and 3. Where we go from here. 1/x
On the methodology of the #PaycheckProtectionProgram I know given the data out there that loans seemed skewed towards larger "small" businesses. I think that stems from a number of reasons. The first being just how banks work. 2/x
Banks are generally fairly conservative, risk adverse institutions- particularly post the banking collapse in 2008/2009. Having worked in that industry during that time period, I got to see the impact of this collapse and how banks changed as a result. 3/x

In the future, we will (have to) talk about a #wealth tax to pay for the economic and fiscal fallout of #Covid19. Germany had a massive one after #WW2. Here is how it worked. /thread
After WW2, Germany faced many challenges. One was, how to compensate those who had lost wealth because of #war damage, #currency reform in 1948, expropriation or eviction from the East. /2
Currency reform had reduced financial assets considerably. Everyone could exchange 60 #Reichsmark into 60 D-Mark. Wages and rents were converted 1:1. But savings were devalued heavily. For example, 1000 RM to just 65 D-Mark. /3

We'll pump $2 trillion tax dollars into the economy to assist corporations.

We'll pump $209 billion tax dollars into households to assist citizens.

If you flipped those numbers, every American adult would receive $10,000 to pay down loans, buy stock, replenish retirement accounts, build equity, and spend with those corporations.

An economy predicated on top-end wealth cannot possibly survive if corps are rewarded for creating an environment in which they cannot survive a 2 month cashflow gap, simply because the employees they underpay, overwork & cannot survive without...

#Moodys has pulled down its growth forecast for FY19 to 5.8%. Only surprise is why it’s not even lower. In the past year growth has collapsed from 8% to 5%. /1

On the other hand #CPI is now at 4.6%. The laxmanrekha of 4% has been breached. A mix of drought, floods and unseasonal rain is driving food prices up. Core #inflation continues to fall to 3.7% reflecting the slowdown. /2

Welcome to the Member of Congress Tracking Report for the week ending November 10, 2019. With Congress on recess this week, we are going to do things a bit differently this week. We are going to take a dive into #McConnellsGraveyard.
#MoCTrack 1/33
#GOP keeps trotting out their tired talking point about the “do-nothing-Dems” and all we can concentrate on is #Impeachment.


What you’ll find below are 30 bills of the 300+ that #McConnell has stalled in the Senate.

#MoCTrack #DemCast 2/33…
HR 1 - #ForThePeople

A bill that would improve voting rights, fix campaign finance regulations, and mandate ethics and accountability reforms.

THREAD- Estate Planning is crucial for #smallbusinessowners. Consider it part of the process of setting up a business. Include any marital agreements. #entreprenuers #entreprenuership #angel #angelinvesting. #vc #vcs #founders #prenup 1/8
Not only would giving estate planning advice on Twitter expose me to lawsuits, it would be practically futile. Business arrangements times family dynamics times changing federal & state tax laws make such public advising futile anyway. #estateplanning 2/8
But here’s what to think through before going to your lawyer. First, estimate the current valuation of the business and what any tax might be to your estate if your dropped dead right now intestate. Your heirs and your spouse? #estateplanning #prenup #prenups 3/8

How Extinction Rebellion 168 climate change zealots - incl. a baronet's Cambridge-educated granddaughter - are paid £400 a week to bring mayhem to our streets. Tory MP called on #HMRC to launch an immediate investigation into the XR tax affairs
Paid XR activists who call for collective guilt & punitive #taxes on the western #taxpayer are enabling new breed of green capitalism, that make select few fabulously rich, while the rest of us choke down meatless hamburgers & pay our #politicians to tax us into oblivion
Climate Mobilization’s call to action has also managed to unite leftists & anti-capitalists with the global elite. Extinction Rebellion’s call for “net zero” atmospheric carbon is shared by The World Bank, and a host of neoliberal think-tanks & financiers

1/15 This race reminds me of the rule in boxing, a split decision goes to the champ. That's how Biden has stayed on top, plus he's authentic both in screw ups and in sincere moments such as talking about the loss of his wife/kids. #ABCDemDebate #joebiden…
2/ Elizabeth Warren's strength is her wonky, thoughtful "I'm not a typical Washington politician" and "I have a plan for that". Dodging the tax question makes her a typical Washington politician. #ewarren #ABCDemDebate #taxes…
3/ Sanders seems incapable of modulating his speech beyond shouting and haranguing. It was interesting, however, that he finally was willing to abandon Venezuelan President Maduro. #berniesanders #venezuela #ABCDemDebate…

THREAD - Étant arrivé au terme de la lecture de cet excellent livre d’Agnès Verdier-Molinié que je vous recommande vivement, j’ai décidé de partager avec vous les grandes lignes, les passages les plus marquants (les plus révoltants)... #EnMarcheVersLImmobilisme 🚶🏼‍♂️
En guise d’introduction, rappelons que la France est
❌ championne d’Europe de la pression fiscale et de la dépense publique avec un taux de prélèvements obligatoires s’établissant à 45%.
❌ Le déficit commercial est de 60 milliards d’€.
❌ Nous avons toujours 2219 Mds de dette.
Notre dette fait partie des plus élevées au monde avec 97% du PIB en 2017.
« Nous gardons aussi les médailles d’or du plus grand nombre d’élus, du plus grand nombre d’agents publics « à vie », les plus chers d’Europe avec le temps de travail le plus faible. »

#Tolstoy & #MMT connection

In 1886, great Russian novelist Leo Tolstoy published a non-fiction piece called 'What Then Must We Do?'.

There is a chapter on #money, which in effect sounds very much familiar and close to the #MMT motto -- #taxes-drive-money.

Tolstoy: "Any money is getting accepted between people only when they are forcefully demanded to be delivered by everybody. When every person needs money to redeem herself/himself from violence, only then money will obtain stable exchange value..."

2/4 #Tolstoy & #MMT connection
Tolstoy (cont'd): "... And what is demanded by the government [to be delivered by people as payment of taxes, fees, etc] obtains value, not what is convenient for exchange."

Bueno he leído en varios lados que eliminar la compensación universal es casi la panacea de la recaudación fiscal.
#impuestos #taxes #SAT #shcp

La verdad que no, de hecho a @CarlosUrzuaSHCP de la @Hacienda_Mexico le engañó quién le vendió esa idea.
1. La compensación es una forma de extinción de las obligaciones, así tal cual. Es decir, si un amigo te debe algo y al mismo tiempo tu le debes algo, compensan la deuda y ya.

2. Eso mismo es a nivel fiscal, solo que acá se trata de pagar un tributo a cargo con tu saldo a favor.
Es decir, tu pagas de más o por algún mecanismo del impuesto el fisco te debe dinero y ese dinero puedes si quieres pedirlo en devolución, o bien, compensarlo con tú adeudo en otro impuesto.

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.

#LoveLettersToAlberta This is from the heart to #Alberta, not a journalist, so it's kinda sloppy. I'm disabled so I have lots of time to research. I'm white (an accident of birth, so I'm not special) and 6th generation Canadian. 1
Dear Alberta, 350,000 families in #Ontario whose breadwinner lost their well-paying jobs in manufacturing know how you feel with the energy business going through rough times. Hubby was a victim. 2
Some jobs went to the USA to states where they have "Right To Work for Peanuts". Some went to little brown people who aren't immigrants. The jobs went to their country. 3
