Inflation can be mitigated by reducing demand and/or by increasing supply. The @federalreserve can only reduce demand by raising rates, a very blunt tool. Wage inflation will likely continue until rates rise to restrictive levels.

#Russia on 🔥: Novokuznetsk Iron and Steel Plant owned by Putin's mafioso Roman #Abramovich caught fire in the evening of September 24th. The plant employed 11,500 people in Siberia. "Leading manufacturer of rail products in Russia and the only manufacturer of tram rails."

Russian men, don't want to die in Ukraine? Too bad.
In Russian Federation, men are banned from leaving the country Information about the closure of borders is now official. The military commissar of the Rostov region said that in order to leave Russian Federation, now a certificate is needed

An excellent resource. “Military enlistment offices continue to burn. In addition to three yesterday several more caught fire: Svobodny (Amur region), Khabarovsk, Tselinny (Altai), Kamyshin, Kyra (Transbaikal). In Moscow military commissars will be accompanied by the police”

We are all lucky to have lived during the @rogerfederer era, one of the greatest athletes ever and a wonderful human being. Even if you don’t care about tennis, you will be moved by his remarks after his last match. Worth a listen.

Doesn’t it make more sense to moderate wage inflation with increased immigration than by raising rates, destroying demand, putting people out of work, and causing a recession?

And if we can target immigration policy to achieve important political objectives like catalyzing a Russian talent drain to the US, why shouldn’t we?

Why don’t we reduce the @federalreserve need to raise rates by expanding immigration now? Let’s remove the barriers for Russia’s brightest. The most talented Russians must leave now before they become fodder in an unjust war.Doing so saves our economy and destroys Russia’s future

If Iran is sending Russia drones, then it’s time for us to return the favor for Ukraine. Ours are way better. #nafo
On the southern frontline four Iranian-made Shahed-136 Russian kamikaze drones were shot down today.

The queue at the border of #Russia with Georgia has reached more than 7.5 km So the Russians are trying to escape from the mobilization announced by #Putin. At the same time, it is reported that local residents of #Georgia pass through the border without a queue.

I know at least 3 guys who fall under the first category by age and service experience, non are on the list. That said, I have no direct contact with any of them currently but I suspect they might as well have been drafted.
🧵#Mobilization: List of 305,925 names comprising the 1st of presumably 3 waves of Putin's draft has been leaked. Pieces fiting together to further corroborate that 1 million people are intended for the draft, not 300,000. 94mb text file: drive.proton.me/urls/VCPW7RY…

Since President Vladimir Putin’s announcement on Wednesday of a new troop call-up, some Russian men have fled the country. They're lining up at the borders and paying high prices to catch flights to countries that allow them to enter without visas. nyti.ms/3Ss1yBq

Interesting opinion on mobilisation from Rus. blogger Mikhail Pozharsky. He believes Russian gov-t broke the pact with citizens in that they wouldn't be involved in wars and could instead follow them on TV like sports (Georgia, Syria). The consequences are unpredictable now.

The speech from Putin today is a careful balancing act of a leader under pressure, who is trying to: 1. please hardliners and Russian milbloggers; 2. not displease the general populace; 3. appease the military; 4. give the impression he is not losing a war. 1/20 🧵
