/1 Catalan referendum: Just check the UK media front pages - the violence by Spanish central gov was biggest gift to Cat
#CatalanReferendum Image
/2 What is happening in Catalonia is also a sign of modern times - information age does not fit sometimes historical country borders
/3 Smaller groups can form societies and should be able to do that. Why should London be a part of UK? Very different societies.
/4 I think the future will bring much more countries, this can be based on the change that technologies bring.
/5 Central gov's will fight it, but it is pointless. It's as stupid as blocking Uber in some cities. Tech will make the change happen anyway
/6 EU could have a huge advantage playing that trend - Catalonia in EU together with Spain - why not? But the bureaucracy stops that
/7 Sadly central gov's seem not to even understand the adjustments countries must make. That's why revolutions happen #CatalanReferendum

1/ Allpool üks päris huvitav juhtum, ilmestamaks tolerantsi Eestis.

Mul oli üks mustanahaline kolleeg B, Eestisse tuli Nigeeriast, töötas IT toes. Selline tark ja rahulik tüüp, vaikselt toimetas, palju ei suhelnud.

Eile kuulsin tema korterisaagat, väike lõim 👇🏻
2/ Ta oli nimelt 2.a. tagasi siia jõudes ka korterit soovinud üürida. Raha oli olemas, tagatisraha, soovitused - kõik mis vaja.

Tema esimesed 37 taotlust korterit üürida lükati tagasi. Lihtsalt sellepärast, et ta oli mustanahaline. Mõnel juhul öeldi seda ka väga otse välja. 37!
3/ 38. juhtum oli üks USAs elanud eestlane, kes ütles "ma kujutan ette kui keeruline see sul võis olla" ja üüris talle korteri.

1/ Having built online trading platforms, I can share insights what is happening with #RobinhoodApp, why their businessmodel is shady and how this $GME 🚀🚀🚀squeeze makes this all a pretty messy affair.

So, a thread 👇🏻
2/ Firstly, the well hidden truth of online trading platforms is that most of the active traders lose money. And most does not mean 51%, but this is more like 90-95%. Clients burn out quite quickly as well.
3/ Some research:
a) from Brazil: "97% of traders lose money" papers.ssrn.com/sol3/papers.cf…
b) from Taiwan: "Less than 1% of daytraders consistently earn positive returns"

Weekend reading: 8 articles about interesting new trends that are happening in the world - from technology to politics to markets. Thread 👇🏻

1/ Guardian is quoting an ex-KGB spy who is saying that Russia has used Trump as an asset for more than 40 years

theguardian.com/us-news/2021/j…
2/ This week the stock markets were derailed by ... a online Reddit army. Strange times, in a way the attack on Capitol was also started online. Decentralization is really happening.

3/ Big Tech has become quite repulsive. And since their business is global the goverments have not been able to do much. At least Big Tech has started now internal bickering - Apple attacking Facebook

1/ Postimees, omaniku sekkumine ja kogu ajakirjanduse tulevik on olnud kuum teema.

Kirjutan mõned mõtted sellel teemal - miks Linnamäe üldse ostis Postimehe ja milline võiks olla meedia tulevik?

Jutulõim 👇
2/ Vaatame korra laiemat pilti ja selle siin on üks aastatagune oluline uudis err.ee/937655/margus-…

Linnamäe oli koondanud erinevaid kuulutusteärisid ja müüs need kõik ühise paketina Londoni fondile maha. Sarnast konsolideerimist teeb UP Invest ka praegu näiteks kinodega.
3/ Miks see oluline on? Ma nägin unes, et tehingu hind võis olla ca 250 mln EUR. Kui see tõele vastab, siis on tegemist väga eduka tehingu ja hea plaaniga.

1/ Kirjutasin märtsi lõpus Suure Plaani artiklis, et Eesti peaks laenama majanduse augu katteks 7 miljardit eurot. Paljud pidasid toona seda utoopiliseks numbriks, Levilat vedav Daniel Vaarik ütles, et see artikkel oli oma ajast lihtsalt ees.
levila.ee/tekstid/majand…

Jutulõim 👇
2/ Kui algselt räägiti miljardist või kahest, siis nüüd on valitsus jõudnud ka juba seisukohani, et vaja on 5 miljardit eurot, jõutakse lõpuks ka selle seitsme miljardini vähemalt.
aripaev.ee/uudised/2020/0…

Kuid siin on nüüd mitu probleemi.
3/ Esiteks, ma tõin oma artiklis välja ka selle, et olen pidanud varem riigi laenamist kaheldava väärtusega tegelemiseks, sest see laenuraha ei tohiks minna lihtsalt kulutusteks, vaid peaks minema investeeringuteks - see peaks tulevikus tagasi tooma.

VÄLKSEMINAR 1/: Sel neljapäeval (09.04) kell 10-12 toimub üks huvitav projekt - ma teen online-seminari majanduse olukorrast, Chalice teeb sinna otsa välkkontserti.

facebook.com/Levila.tv/post…

Allpool veidi taustast pikemalt 👇
2/ Mõtlesin, et ehk oleks huvitav ka juurde kirjutada selle välkprojekti saamislugu. Mitmed konverentsikorraldajad pöördusid minu poole, et teha online-seminar. Majanduse kohta küsitakse iga päev minult palju kordi, see oleks efektiivne viis infot esitada.
3/ Kuid praegusel ajal raha ei tahaks küsida kuulajatelt. Samas tasuta ei peaks ka olema ning äkki peaks seda kuidagi moodsamalt lahendama?
