Already having issues with getting Kristalina to invest - I can't find any contact info for her... not that it was unexpected.

I will probably have to go in through a generic info@imf email, or something. Of course that means somebody in the mail room will screen whatever I send, and an investment solicitation to the CEO is unlikely to move up the food chain.

Let me try...

SHEESH! I might be barking up the wrong tree. Not only can't I find contact info for Kristalina, I can't even find an email for any department or anyone on the IMF website that looks remotely related to facilitating on-the-ground climate crisis efforts.

I did learn that the average salary at the IMF is $250K, should be lots of investable dough floating around there. But all of the notable staff (possibly 100 of them) are academic style researchers. There is no way to tell if any of them are in the field of local community microeconomics (that wasn't a listed area of IMF research). I could really use some help modeling our approach...

Guess I'll toss in the towel on getting anyone at IMF off the sidelines and into my little climate mitigation game.

I wonder what, exactly, was Kristalina talking about in the article saying, "no one can stand on the sidelines", when sidelines seems to be all they know?

So this just got reported on.
I’m guessing this is one of many ‘feed back loops’ that we’ve been warned not to initiate.
I’m glad our politics have been laser focused on this singular threat to organized human existence.

Hate to think they’d be squandering insanely precious time on diversionary theatre.

Also in the news;

Nancy Pelosi threw angry rich lady shade at conservative Sinclair reporter.
#DontMessWithNancy goes viral on twitter.
Liberals jubilant. Spontaneous celebrations broke out across the forbidden city.

‘Getting back to normal all but guaranteed in 2020’ says smart guy spokesperson from ‘Americans for America’ Think tank.

Markets ended the day in bull market territory.

Good times

S’funny how the spread of neoliberal political economics have created reactionary authoritarian crises around the world.
Too bad Mr Potters policies were picked over George Baily’s as the reasonable, bipartisan approach to governance by voters.
Then again, Potter owned all the newspapers, TV networks and funded a crap ton of brain worm think tanks.
Poor George Bailey. He never had a chance really.

And so I wonder...are Australians learning from this or are they like Americans?

Funny thing, empires.
Some stuff radiates out while other things drift back.
My guess is they’re following our trajectory and not so much influencing it.
