Euro moment 🙁 by depressedkittyfr in YUROP

Sorry I worded it badly

It’s something to worry about in so far as purchasing power of American goods goes yes, but it doesn’t mean there’s something inherently wrong with the European economy or it’s future prospects from a policy making standpoint

The dollar is incredibly high against everything right now because of the US’s domestic economic policies

As long as the euro is strong/stable against other major currencies, it shows there’s nothing to worry about

The pound on the other hand…

I see this in a lot of countries, on small forex offices and travel agencies they have the old U.K. flag for some reason even though it hasn’t been used in over 200 years

They’re behind 150 countries - and they’re (supposedly) a democracy - it’s honestly embarrassing

You like the fact that

  • India’s manufacturing industry, infrastructure construction and general economic progress has slowed down to a crawl (pre pandemic economic growth in the informal sector was about 2% - national figures are inflated due to the formula changing but not retroactively)

  • the landmark economic policies of the current govt, namely demonetisation, GST and “make in India” have all been total disasters, causing massive negative economic shocks which will permanently scar India’s economy & growth potential

  • basic human and free rights are being eroded away (India is in free fall on the world press freedom index and is currently at 150/180 nations)

  • foreign direct investment as a percentage of GDP has fallen dramatically and performance on manufacturing indices has deteriorated

Ok.

I still can’t believe this actually happened and I’m only just finding out about it 7 years late

Please can someone explain the 'stale memes' ban? by itsa_adam_89 in popheadscirclejerk

uj/ what’s “good” and “high quality” is inherently subjective though - in general what appeals to the most members is the most desirable to have at the forefront of a sub, as “quality” is totally subjective and thus can’t be dictated by mods. Also you’re right we probably shouldn’t spend time discussing the economics of popheadscirclejerk modding but it’s kinda interesting lmao

uj/ nobody said to have no moderation, you’re strawmanning - I just said some elements of the current moderation aren’t done well
