Want to avoid recession? Then shower UK households with cash | Simon Jenkins | Opinion | The Guardian
Just give people the money. Give them cash, dole it out, increase benefits, slash VAT, hand it to those most likely to spend it: the poor. Put £1,000 into every debit account. Whatever you do, don’t give it to banks. They will just hoard it or use it to boost house prices.

Central Banking and Inequality – Taking Off the Blinders
"Despite studies that suggest that the post-crisis unconventional monetary policies tend to exacerbate inequalities, the standard line of central banks is that these “unintended consequences” fall outside their mandate."

Here's Why All Pension Funds Are Doomed, Doomed, Doomed
Given that both The Economist and The Wall Street Journal have covered the impossibility of pension funds achieving their expected returns, this reality cannot be a surprise to anyone in a leadership role. [...] Here's problem #1 in a nutshell: the average public pension fund still expects to earn an average annual return of 7.69%, year after year, decade after decade.

This is roughly triple the nominal (not adjusted for inflation) yield on a 30-year Treasury bond (about 2.65%). The only way any fund manager can earn 7.7% or more in a low-yield environment is to make extremely high risk bets that consistently pay off. //&!

deflationary trap/liquidity trap - orthodox monetary policy w austerity = stagnation. & west is exporting deflation. // if it is good for consumers ... break up banks. // hedging is BS ... you double the system you double the risk. [...] banks are now bigger! ... ban most derivatives, and reintroduce glass stegall // Black-Schoeles - there is no such think as risk free rate and no such thing as the past reflect the future. risk is not equally distributed.

Deutsche Bank Loves Helicopter Money: Why "Big Inflation Is Coming... But Will First Require A Crisis"
[NEED FOR CHANGE OF WIND - deflationary pressures ] Europe is another story. Germany must let their southern neighbors cheat on deficits and bank recapitalizations. “Spanish election showed if you let them cheat and growth surprises positively then extremists don’t do so well. Europe can only survive as an inflation zone. Will it be formally tolerated? Probably not. Will governments cheat anyway with ECB support?” Probably.

Pushy parents stress out children, Eton head says - BBC News
There has been a rise in the number of parents "living their lives through their ambitions for their children", the head teacher of Eton has said. Tony Little, who is leaving the school, said most parents had been "supportive" but there were now "more pressures on young people than ever before". And if his pupils failed to conform to parents' "outcome template", it could "add to the stresses" in their life. Eton employs a full-time psychologist to promote "good mental health". [...] "Children don't learn unless they are happy," she said. [...] In a wide-ranging interview, Mr Little also said he was "exasperated" by England's exam system and that learning subjects in "silos" prevented pupils from thinking laterally. "It's like an egg timer," he said.

Why Mental Health Disorders Emerge in Your Early Twenties | VICE | United Kingdom
[ nurture over nature ] What kind of things should people be aware of? It's important to know what you're at risk of. Let's say you had a parent with psychopathology; that certainly is a risk factor. If you've had a difficult time engaging in your social world as a kid, that's another risk factor. If your parents sheltered you instead of giving you some exposure to difficult things and showing you how to cope, that's another risk factor. The type of parenting that you had as a child can really affect the way you cope with the new challenges as you launch into adulthood.

min10 Networking & making Conversation, "Everyone is interesting. Let them talk abt what they know well & do well. If not u may make them uncomfortable - ur fault. Just ask them the right inquisitive questions." // Career & Life Advice. Stay Humble (humility) & Smart. Overconfidence is the disease of the expert. Titans of Wall Street believed in such command that they were risk averse & believed never 2 fail (black swan, blind spot). Overconfidence & arrogance is a psychological problem of success. // Also, learning from experience, the elders, is so important ie 2015, Unicorns in Silicon Valley with burn rates greater than during the dot. com bubble & the youngsters do not listen 2 have plan b & c in their desk drawer as Bill Gurly mentioned in his 2015 SXSW talk w Gladwell. bc "U only learn certain things when youve been humbled." // 23:35 its not about IQ (intelligence), its abt environment & culture!

Ballet star Tamara Rojo says modern children lack discipline - BBC News
The principal dancer at the English National Ballet says many of today's pupils lack the discipline to succeed. Tamara Rojo told Radio Times magazine that children were often praised for quick results rather than hard work. "We live in a society that rewards fast success based on little talent or commitment, which is transient and a dangerous place to be," she said. "Do we want to promote instant success and instant failure, or do we want to promote self-esteem and hard work?"

The Case for Free-Range Parenting - NYTimes.com
Such narrowing of the child’s world has happened across the developed world. But Germany is generally much more accepting of letting children take some risks. To this German parent, it seems that America’s middle class has taken overprotective parenting to a new level, with the government acting as a super nanny. Just take the case of 10-year-old Rafi and 6-year-old Dvora Meitiv, siblings in Silver Spring, Md., who were picked up in December by the police because their parents had dared to allow them to walk home from the park alone. For trying to make them more independent, their parents were found guilty by the state’s Child Protective Services of “unsubstantiated child neglect.” What had been the norm a generation ago, that kids would enjoy a measure of autonomy after school, is now seen as almost a crime. &! via https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=9239553
