It's #WorldPopulationDay and the UN has just released its new World Population Prospects for 2022.

At @OurWorldInData we've built a new population data explorer for you to explore it all:…

🧵👇A thread with some of the highlights:
@OurWorldInData The UN projects that the world will pass 8 billion by November this year.

However, population growth rates are slowing significantly, and have dipped below 1% in the last few years.

@OurWorldInData In its medium fertility scenario, the UN now projects that the world will hit peak population in 2080 at 10.4 billion people.

In its previous release, growth continued to 10.8 billion and did not peak before 2100.

Today is #WorldPopulationDay, which reminds us that while #ElonMusk is determined to contribute to increasing the population, he has also managed to upset the existing one, by backing out of the Twitter deal. Good thing that the markets were more stable, than Musk’s mood. 1/7
Talking about the “impending recession” seems to be the trend. So, it was a surprise last week, when both the #Sensex & the #Nifty went ↑ by almost 3%. Potential reasons? Maybe the cooldown in the prices of #commodities. This helps sectors like #Auto, #Realty, & #FMCG. 2/7
So naturally, both the #NiftyFMCG & #NiftyRealty were ↑ over 5%. #NiftyAuto was also ↑ 3.5%. In fact, every sectoral index was painting the town green. Global indices were also mostly up. The S&P 500 was ↑ 1.94% & the #NASDAQ100 ↑ by 4.6%. 3/7

For in a raiment of gold and blue
There shall move on the earth embodied and fair
The living truth of you..."

Veiled in events he lives and working disguised in the mortal
Builds our strength by pain, and an empire is born out of ruins..”

Are forecasts we misspell,
But of what life or scene he who has measured
The boundless heavens can tell.."
