What Is the Current State of Economic Science? / Economics / Economic Theory

By: MISES

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleErwin Rosen writes: What is the current state of economic science? In two words, "not good."

This is evident in the poor performance of the economics profession during the current financial crisis. Few economists saw it coming; once it started, its severity caught them by surprise; and now it is apparent that there is no agreement among them on how to end it.

How Much Faith Should We Put in Keynesian Economic Models? / Economics / Economic Theory

By: Robert_Murphy

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleJim Manzi is a private-sector expert in statistical analysis. He is my favorite commentator on the economics of climate change, because he dove into the IPCC reports and found that the proposed legislative "cures" (cap-and-trade or carbon-tax laws) are arguably worse than the disease, even according to the "consensus" numbers.

The Fed, The Chicago School's Achilles Heel / Economics / Economic Theory

By: Robert_Murphy

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn a recent post "Triumph of the Austrian Economists," David Frum laments the displacement of the respectable Chicago School as the economists of choice among the political Right. Frum fails to see that conservative Republicans are justified in switching their allegiance to the Austrian economists, because supply-side monetarists have a glaring blind spot when it comes to the Federal Reserve.

There’s Still Hope for Modern Economists / Economics / Economic Theory

By: Barry_Elias

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleA recent blog of mine, dated Nov. 12, 2010, suggested that modern economists have modeled the economic decision-making process for many years with a high degree of inaccuracy.

They implemented a methodology referred to as the dynamic stochastic general equilibrium (DSGE) model.

Destructive Neoliberal Economic Austerity / Economics / Economic Theory

By: Stephen_Lendman

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleInstead of vitally needed stimulus, Washington and European governments dictate austerity. The pretext of deficit reduction is being used to transfer more wealth to those already with too much, plus the usual canard over the urgency to save national banking systems.

In other words, make ordinary people bear the burden of bailing out banking giants responsible for the severest economic crisis since the Great Depression. How? The usual IMF solution, involving preservation of capital at the expense of workers - a package including wage and benefit cuts, less social spending, privatization of state resources, mass layoffs, deregulation, lower "onerous" taxes, maintaining corporate debt service, and harsh crackdowns against resisters.

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn his interview with the CNBC on November 9, 2010, a highly regarded Wall Street economist, Nouriel Roubini, the cofounder and chairman of Roubini Global Economics, said that a gold standard is unlikely to stabilize the financial system. On the contrary, holds Roubini, such a standard can only make things much worse.

Raising Taxes Is Not Reducing Government Spending / Economics / Economic Theory

By: George_Reisman

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleSunday's New York Times carries an article titled "The Blur Between Spending and Taxes." The author is Harvard Professor N. Gregory Mankiw.[1] The essential theme of the article is that the government is spending when it decides to forgo tax revenue that it otherwise could have collected. Indeed, tax revenues forgone in the enactment of tax deductions, such as for interest payments on home mortgages or charitable contributions, and tax credits, such as for first-time homebuyers or adoptions, are now commonly described as "Tax Expenditures." The thought is that the government is spending money in deciding not to take it in taxes and to allow the taxpayers to keep it.

Bernanke vs. Keynes / Economics / Economic Theory

By: Mike_Whitney

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleInvestment drives the economy. It creates jobs, builds factories, develops technology, and stimulates growth. When investment falls, spending slows, unemployment rises, and the economy languishes in persistent stagnation.

Zombie Keynesianism / Economics / Economic Theory

By: Michael_S_Rozeff

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe Keynesians are having a highly public quarrel on a deep and divisive issue – a fundamental issue. They are wrangling over exchange rates.

Obama and Bernanke and the U.S. Congress want the Chinese to raise the value of the Chinese currency. The Chinese don’t want to.

What Drives Business Profits? / Economics / Economic Theory

By: Kel_Kelly

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe economic and business community constantly attempts to forecast the effects of various economic changes and government policies on corporate profits. But both the cause and effect of increasing profits are other than what most people imagine. It will therefore be helpful to gain a concrete understanding of what profits do and do not represent.[1]

Bernanke and Greenspans Pretense of Economic Knowledge Continues / Economics / Economic Theory

By: Douglas_French

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleTwo years after the Wall Street '08 come-apart, with the economy still lingering in a funk, the Federal Reserve announced, a day after the elections, what the Associated Press called "a bold effort to invigorate the economy": the purchase of $600 billion of government bonds from now through the middle of next year, at a pace of $75 billion a month. This $600 billion is on top of the $250–$300 billion the Fed will be buying to reinvest proceeds from its mortgage portfolio.

Modern Economists Failed at Disaster Recovery / Economics / Economic Theory

By: Barry_Elias

When a recent Nobel Laureate in Economics, a current Federal Reserve Board president, and MIT economist with the National Bureau of Economics (NBER) agree — take serious note: It is quite rare.

"I believe that during the last financial crisis, macroeconomists (and I include myself among them) failed the country, and indeed the world,” Dr. Narayana Kocherlakota, President of the Minneapolis Federal Reserve Bank, wrote this past May.

Common Sense vs. Academic Economist Formulas; Fed Concludes Structurally High Unemployment is a Myth / Economics / Economic Theory

By: Mike_Shedlock

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleBen Bernanke and the Fed have great belief in academic models whether they make any real world practical sense or not.

Indeed, Bernanke's reliance on formulas instead of common sense is what told him there was no housing bubble, that unemployment would not get above 8.5%, and that Quantitative Easing in massive force would cause the unemployment rate to drop. He was wrong on all counts.

Thinking Clearly about Capital, Interest, and Income / Economics / Economic Theory

By: Robert_Murphy

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleNowadays, Austrian economists are most famous for their theory of the business cycle, as developed by Ludwig von Mises and Friedrich Hayek. However, they also made many contributions to the pure theory of capital and interest, most notably in the seminal work of Eugen von Böhm-Bawerk and later in that of Hayek. In the present article we'll see that these insights are relevant today, as mainstream economist Scott Sumner lashes out justifiably against absurd tax policies but, in the process, throws economic theory out the window too.

The Business Boom-Bust Cycle in Microcosm / Economics / Economic Theory

By: George_Reisman

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe essential features of the boom-bust business cycle can be understood by viewing them in terms of the financial circumstances of a single individual.

Thus, imagine that an ordinary person has been going about his life more or less living within his means. And now, one day, he receives a registered letter from a major bank. The letter informs him that he is the sole heir of a distant relative who possessed a substantial fortune, and that he should come into the bank's main office in his city to sign the necessary documents and receive all the necessary authorizations to henceforth dispose of this fortune as he sees fit. Naturally, he quickly goes in and takes possession of his newfound fortune.

Bernanke's Bubble Making Solutions Are the Problem / Economics / Economic Theory

By: Mark_Thornton

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleBen Bernanke, the man who purports to be the savior of the economy today, was actually deeply involved in creating the housing bubble, encouraging people to invest in toxic assets, and orchestrating the cover-up after the bubble collapsed. Now he is bludgeoning the economy into depression. Just like his predecessor Greenspan, his statements are replete with misleading, convoluted, and inconsistent claims, all designed to disguise the role of the Fed in the economic calamity.

Academic Economists are the Unholy Priests of the Bankster's / Economics / Economic Theory

By: Global_Research

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleGabriel Donohoe writes: "Political Economists," according to Stephen Zarlenga in The Lost Science Of Money, "became the priesthood of the new Bank aristocracy, often serving as a propaganda apparatus to whitewash the monetary power structure. They put forward false ideas and smoke screens on the nature of money, primitive concepts that help entrench the bankers."
