Nice @nytimes piece by @marywalshnyt @MatthewPhillips (it even quotes me:)) @IHEID Poor Countries Face a Debt Crisis ‘Unlike Anything We Have Seen’ - The New York Times https://t.co/tpROorvamd
Thanks, Ugo! Your data compilations were really eye-opening. https://t.co/6kg1sjMh33
@marywalshnyt @nytimes Nice piece of Journalism Mary. The most vulnerable always suffer the most. When will we learn how bad /over financialisation in developed economies hinders not helps developing economies.
Thanks—not in a forgiving mood, and not in a learning mood either, I guess. https://t.co/NShorG0FKe
@marywalshnyt Regular pay raise. What Mark neglected to say was that same group spent four years frozen because of Rauner’s actions. Average in the raise over those years and it’s probably less than cost of living.
Unfortunately, the cost of living may be going negative now because of this shock. The projections are like nothing I’ve ever seen before and the Fed seems to be trying to prevent deflation. https://t.co/nViNWE3ZpE
I would risk Covid to have a public debate over this nutty study claiming that public sector pensions generate net revenues for their states. https://t.co/1YSEVgyOub
Pension money is very powerful money, at least if it’s an Illinois pension, because Illinois doesn’t tax pensions. So $1 of Illinois pension buys more than $1 of ordinary income. But still, I think that would benefit the individual retirees, not the state budget.... https://t.co/xiSRrB3UA1
Me (to man strutting maskless down a six-foot sidewalk in #Hoboken): You're effectively blocking the sidewalk by not wearing a mask. Him: So walk in the street. Me: I am 71 and should walk in the street because you won't wear a mask? Him: F*** you. Questions to follow.
He’ll reincarnate down to an ant and get stepped in. https://t.co/BIfHZcktqp
Deficit soaring, Deflation roaring, Trump lying, GOP dying. @senatemajldr hates Trump crying. @SenSasse hiding @SenJoniErnst manipulating. @trafficstatic knows well, hides well. @joehagansays Sticky pause mode. @marywalshnyt what are you doing? Numbers matter. @anemonanyc schools https://t.co/6A81aCIG0B
Head spinning, so much sinning https://t.co/3mtwrGMZx8
@marywalshnyt Mary, in our numerous conversation I’ve frequently emphasized that Illinois’ iron-clad public pension guarantee incentives employed to seek higher current pay so as to kick in higher pension benefits at retirement.
But without adequate funding. https://t.co/uki3XpZfj0
@marywalshnyt It's not just a matter of fairness, but also the leverage long-retired public pensioners have. - yes, they have political power... at the places they vote. If they've permanently moved to Florida.... - they don't have strike power. And current employees won't strike for them.
Wait, are you saying they can’t send in absentee-voter ballots from Florida? https://t.co/JEcXRJhk5s
No they didn’t. Tried to with a bond sale a few years ago but there are still unpaid bills left.... https://t.co/AxsG1EybWp
@meepbobeep @marywalshnyt Long retired public pensioners are also to blame. They've consistently exerted pressure to divert pension funds to fund raises, job security, and keeping Cadillac benefits. Hartford Courant 5/20/75 - just a few years after the pension reserve was established. https://t.co/g8vG6TPzhk
Oh no! It isn’t usually explained so concisely as in this article.! https://t.co/oTG3fXHkKN
@marywalshnyt I hope our politicians can sneak this pension bailout through before taxpayers in the 49 other states realize what's going on. If we don't get that $$ we might have to pay for those pensions ourselves and that sucks.
I feel your pain. But normally the people who received the public services are the ones who pay for them. https://t.co/GfgiLZUALs
