Slow Economic Recovery and Recessions on the Margin / Economics / Economic Recovery

By: John_Mauldin

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleRecessions Are on the Margin
A Rose is Still a Rose
If It Feels Like a Recession
The Rough Road Back

And the data out over the last few weeks tells us it is getting better. Does this take us out of the double-dip woods, even as the Fed is lowering its forecast? And what is a recession? Yes, we all know it's when the economy doesn't grow, but we are in a rather unique economic environment, this time. Maybe things are getting better, but is it enough to get us back on the road to full employment?

By: Asha_Bangalore

By: Asha_Bangalore

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIndustrial production held steady in October after a 0.2% drop in the prior month.

U.S. Jobless Claims Decline and Trade Gap Narrows, Exports Continue Boost Economy / Economics / Economic Recovery

By: Asha_Bangalore

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleInitial jobless claims fell 24,000 to 435,000 during the week ended November 6.  Initial jobless claims have dropped in three out of the last four weeks.  The 4-week moving average at 446,500 is the lowest since September 13, 2008 (see chart 1).  Each of these developments is noteworthy and encouraging.  In addition, the date is haunting because this is the last weekly reading before the Lehman Brothers debacle in September 2008.

U.S. Real GDP Revised Higher, Stronger Consumer Spending, Jobless Claims Trending Down / Economics / Economic Recovery

By: Paul_L_Kasriel

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleReal GDP grew at an annual rate of 1.7% in the second quarter vs. the preliminary estimate of 1.6%. The 2.2% growth in consumer spending represents an upward revision from the earlier estimate of a 2.0% gain. The strength came from an upward revision of consumer outlays on services. A larger inventory accumulation was also reported for the second quarter compared with the prior estimate ($68.8 billion vs. $63.2 billion in preliminary report). A decline in non-residential structures and smaller growth of government spending provided most of the offset. Going forward, the U.S. economy is projected to grow at a tepid pace in the second half of 2010 of roughly 1-3/4%.

A Candid Appraisal of the U.S. Economic Recovery / Economics / Economic Recovery

By: John_Browne

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOver the last two weeks, seemingly good economic news offered some shreds of optimism to a stock market that was desperate for a pick-me-up.

The week before last, the National Bureau of Economic Research declared that the US recession had ended back in June 2009. At the beginning of last week, news came in that month-on-month retail sales had risen by 0.4 percent. Combined with successful government debt auctions in the eurozone, increasing expectations that Republicans will take back the House (thereby blunting the leftward drift of Washington), and hopes that a new round of quantitative easing will pump up growth, mainstream analysts are developing a feeling of near-euphoria.
