One emerging threat to world growth is policy disruption coming from the sudden wave of political instability. In the U.S., we’re seeing it in spades with all the on-and-off policy proclamations from the Trump administration, while partisanship in Congress ratchets up to new heights. As of last week, the U.K.’s recent plan to Brexit the EU — last year’s destabilizing surprise — suddenly looks shaky with Prime Minister Theresa May’s failure to achieve a stable and strong majority government.
Last month, the Financial Post published articles written by, and broadcast an interview of, Terence Corcoran in which Mr. Corcoran questioned the decision by the Ontario Securities Commission (“OSC”) to accuse Home Capital Group (“HCG”) and some of its current and former executives with misleading shareholders.
According to the big thinkers in economics, many of our social and economic problems could be solved with a little tinkering with the price system. Got too much pollution and too many carbon emissions? Raise the costs of pollution and emissions with taxes and higher prices. Traffic congestion can be relieved with the simple addition of road tolls. Too much sugar in our diets can be solved by taxing products with sugar. The theory is that higher prices will cascade through the economic system.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
