Re: Trump -- the last 100 days

So, in light of Trump's retweeting the message "the only good Democrat is a dead Democrat", I trust it is fair game to make similar explicit statements about Trumps.

Re: norway

I've read that state + municipal tax is 0.85% in total. Not a lot of money if I was Talsen, but I hoped renting my flat in London would cover my rent in Oslo. BTW, isn't it crazy in itself that just one person is in charge of the actual hell lot of money that the oil fund is? My understanding of th...

Re: norway

Given that the current top wealth tax rate is something like 0.7%, you need a lot of property to generate “A HELL OF A LOT OF MONEY” in wealth tax obligations. If you are following the saga of Mr Tangen and the oil fund, you can see how it’s done. But I haven’t chosen to go down this path for other ...

Re: What is Borisism?

For somebody who is actually supposed to be pretty smart, that was a dumb story to tell. Not that it seems to change anything, since BJ needs him, but still?

Re: EU-UK Trade Discussions 2020

Apropos the thread title - do we expect there to be any trade talks, or were they another victim of the Coronavirus?

Twitter flags Trump tweet for 'glorifying violence' https://www.rte.ie/news/us/2020/0529/1143327-twitter-flags-trump-tweet-for-glorifying-violence/ back to the 60s? Yep, he definitely wants the military to shoot US civilians if they step out of line. The same messaging on Facebook and Instagram is ...

Re: LIBOR Sunset

There is a lot to be worried about, and lots of committee time is spent worrying. My primary concern would be about structures or entities that may end up with profound structural mismatches between cash instruments and derivatives hedges. Since ISDA is usually pretty good at managing this sort of s...

Re: Trump -- the last 100 days

It would just be so cool if Twitter fought back and banned Trump. He would literally be left without a voice of his own, having to rely on Fox News, Breitbart and talk radio to channel his lies, conspiracy theories and hate speech. But I'm daydreaming...

Re: Trump -- the last 100 days

Let's see how long this forum can sustain Trump's onslaught on social media. I'm pretty sure he can shut it down because it's (mostly) in English, which is his language. And without ppauper it is biased against him.

I prefer physicists to brawl with philosophers rather than muck about with finance.
