The Great Depression Revisited / Economics / Economic Depression

By: MISES

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleHans F. Sennholz writes: Although the Great Depression engulfed the world economy many years ago, it lives on as a nightmare for individuals old enough to remember and as a frightening specter in the textbooks of our youth.

Some 13 million Americans were unemployed, "not wanted" in the production process. One worker out of every four was walking the streets in want and despair. Thousands of banks, hundreds of thousands of businesses, and millions of farmers fell into bankruptcy or ceased operations entirely.

By: John_Mauldin

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThis week's Outside the box looks at some very interesting research done by two economic historians, Barry Eichengreen of the University of California at Berkeley and Kevin O'Rourke of Trinity College, Dublin They give us comparisons between the Great Depression and today's downturn. They continue to update their data from time to time, the link to their work is at http://www.voxeu.org/index.php?q=node/3421. I have not previously heard of www.voxeu.org, but it is a collection of the work of well regarded international economists that seems quite interesting for those who enjoy readings in the dismal science.

By: Submissions

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDr. Raju M. Mathew wrotes: Strategy For Their Survival And Growth - In spite of their oil wealth and oil reserve funds, GCC Countries are not free from the all pervading financial crisis that turned into a global economic crisis. Starting with the automobile crisis in the USA and aggravated with financial meltdown and credit Crisis, the demand for oil declined and the price has fallen from $148 to around $ 40, shattering the high dreams of everlasting Boom into a mere Bust. How long the GCC Countries carry out their spending and affluent life style and developmental activities by using their oil reserve funds and how long could they inject their money to revive the ailing western economies besides their own economies are the two relevant questions?

When Japan's so-called “Lost Decade” began with a bang in the early 1990s, she was an “OL” - an office lady - working in one of Japan's mightiest corporations and she kept her job, despite the downturn.

There's only one Cure for a Depression / Economics / Economic Depression

By: Michael_Pento

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn contrast with a depression, a recession is relatively easy to bring to an end. The genesis of a recession is caused by excessive credit creation on the part of banks and the Fed. The superfluous money drives prices higher and the rate of inflation begins to increase at a pace that makes the Fed uncomfortable. The Central bank then begins to raise rates in order to soak up that liquidity and put an end to its easy monetary policy.

The Great Depression II Survival Strategies / Economics / Economic Depression

By: Submissions

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDr. Raju M. Mathew wrotes: This is the Great Depression II - The crisis that we are now facing can rightly be called The Great Depression II of 2009 . And it is several times severe than the Great Depression I of 1929. It is not mere a financial meltdown; not mere a credit crisis. It is not a recession to disappear within two years. The dimensions and intensities of the Great Depression II are quite different from the early one. Who had brought out the present crisis and where had gone all the money or credits that were available before a few months back, are the two questions that the general public is asking?

The Great Depression Facts: Double Dip Economic Slump / Economics / Economic Depression

By: Paul_L_Kasriel

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleContrary to what you might believe, the Great Depression of the 1930s was not a decade-long era of economic decline. Rather, the Great Depression was made up of two distinct economic slumps - August 1929 through March 1933 and May 1937 through June 1938. As Chart 1 shows, the first recessionary period of the Great Depression was not only longer in duration, but more severe in magnitude. Notice, however, that a quite robust economic recovery/expansion occurred between the two recessions.

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhilst the great inflation/deflation debate continues (its deflation that wins, the inflationistas are being misled by the Fed's actions with its bail out facilities) we need to look at some startling new facts and projections that have appeared in the public arena. My worry, as you can gather from the title of this article, is that we face a global depression that cannot be avoided even if the events discussed below favour the results that the Central Banks et al seek.

Political Elite on Guard Against Global Economic Depression and Gold Safehaven / Economics / Economic Depression

By: Gary_Dorsch

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis Article“If you want to continue to be the slaves of bankers, and pay the cost of your own slavery, then let bankers continue to create money and control credit,” warned Sir Josiah Stamp, former chief of the Bank of England in 1927. Indeed, the world economy is now held hostage by an elite banking cartel, whose reckless pursuit of speculation and bloated profits, has precipitated a breakdown of the global financial system, and is plunging the world towards a “Great Depression.”

U.S. Heading for Japan Style Two Decade Economic Depression / Economics / Economic Depression

By: James_Quinn

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleEvery day seems worse than the previous day. Five hundred thousand people are getting laid off every month. Our banking system is on life support. Retailers are going bankrupt in record numbers. The stock market keeps descending. Home prices continue to plummet. Home foreclosures keep mounting. Consumer confidence is at record lows. You would like to close your eyes and make it go away. Not only is the news not going away, it is going to get worse and last longer than most people can comprehend. The Great Depression lasted 11 years, but the more pertinent comparison is Japan from 1990 until today. A two decade long downturn has a high likelihood of occurring in the United States. There are many similarities between the U.S. and Japan, but in many areas the U.S. has a much dire situation. If the next decade resembles the Japanese experience, there will be significant angst and social unrest.

Engines of Economic Growth Beyond the Depression / Economics / Economic Depression

By: Brian_Bloom

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe purpose of this high level analysis goes beyond an attempt to explain why an economic depression is virtually inevitable. It seeks also to identify a possible pathway out of the economic quagmire.

It is the view of this analyst that many of our political decision makers and/or their advisers do not clearly understand the overarching macro problem. The relevance of this observation is best illustrated by the following quote from an article entitled “Downturn Accelerates As It Circles The Globe”, which appeared in the Washington Post on January 24th 2009:
