Green Shoots of a US Economic Recovery? / Economics / US Economy

By: Alasdair_Macleod

There is growing hope in some quarters that economic recovery is at last under way in the USA. Is this just an election-inspired pick-up in sentiment, now rapidly vanishing, or do we take it more seriously; and if it really is recovery, what are the inflationary consequences?

The Tragedy Of The Euro! What About Germany? / Economics / Eurozone Debt Crisis

By: GoldSilverWorlds

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleBrecht Arnaert writes: 2012 has been a year of great turmoil for the euro. But our economy is not the only thing that is in crisis. Our economic theory is too, and even more so: for decades macro-economic policy has been conducted within a Keynesian framework, and while no Keynesian economist has predicted this crisis, or even is able to explain it’s causes, we are still listening to them today to get out of the mess they brought us into. I would say that this is a problem of legitimacy.

Obama, Romney And The Deflation Fireball / Economics / Deflation

By: Andrew_McKillop

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOBAMECONOMICS, MORMONOMICS: SAME THING
US voters rallied to the lesser of two evils or two Also Rans, and voted Obama. His economic style, the house style of all OECD country governors and far beyond, was attacked by the leading Mormon business writer and Romney supporter, Howard Ruff, as "Obameconomics". Who won in the election however had no importance - or hold on what happens next, as financial and commodity market operators have already signalled, in their own easy-to-deny way. Oil prices and European equities in a widening number of "most exposed" countries went on weakening, as the Obama victory news came in, with several indexes now at six-week lows, as Fitch Ratings and leading commentators again warned the US could re-enter open and frank recession if it fails to "manage" the so-called fiscal cliff and if China slows more, the UK economy turn further downward, French industrial production and business confidence shrinks further, and German industrial output continues to weaken.

EU Game Changer: Economic Austerity Hits The Core / Economics / Economic Austerity

By: Raul_I_Meijer

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleHere's what may be a useful angle to explain to people what is happening in Europe right now, and what's yet to come. It's not about Greece, which shoved another "Deal" through its besieged parliament this week, a deal that itself is also still under siege. It's not about Spain either, which managed to borrow a few billon more, enough to stay alive till Christmas, but sees its bond yields enter the land of ugly (yawn) again.

Zimbabwe’s Four-Year Anniversary—From Hyperinflation to Growth / Economics / HyperInflation

By: Steve_H_Hanke

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn mid-November 2008, Zimbabwe recorded the world’s second-highest hyperinflation. Today, it can boast strong growth and single-digit inflation rates. In 2008, Zimbabwe’s annual real GDP growth rate was a miserable -17.6 percent and its annual inflation rate was 89.7 sextillion percent—that’s roughly 9 followed by 22 zeros.

America's Double Trouble and The Reckoning, U.S. Debt Higher than Greece / Economics / US Debt

By: Andy_Sutton

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleNow that the untold billions have been spent trying to convince America that our leaders actually know what they’re doing, they’re going to get put to an early test, and a critical one at that. Looming large are two big issues: the debt ceiling (again), and the ‘fiscal cliff’ automatic budget cuts. While they may seem like two separate issues, it all really ties together rather nicely into one big package that can be loosely labeled as yet another attempt to spend more than is brought in and at the same time justify it.  The good news is that the players are the same so the egos are the same and we can use that as barometer based on how they ‘handled’ the situation in 2010. The bad news is the egos are the same and they did a pitiful job in 2010, opting to simply kick the can down the road as opposed to actually embarking on any meaningful reform pathway.

Obama Election Win Means Big Inflation is Coming, Investor Refuge in Gold and Silver / Economics / Inflation

By: Zeal_LLC

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWell, Americans voted and the winner is inflation.  Half our voting populace inexplicably decided to award a second term to Obama.  Four more years of mind-boggling record deficits and record national debt growth!  Obama’s Administration spent roughly 50% more than the government took in, which can essentially only be financed in two ways.  Borrowing from foreigners and running the printing presses.

Can President Obama Really Help the U.S. Economy? / Economics / US Economy

By: InvestmentContrarian

Sasha Cekerevac writes: When it comes to the latest presidential election, the central focus for many U.S. citizens has been the lack of gross domestic product (GDP) growth for America. Since the Great Recession began several years ago, GDP growth has remained far below potential, leaving millions of people unemployed and looking for work. During this time, the global economy has also slowed. While President Barack Obama has made large claims about what he can do to help increase GDP growth, let’s take a look at the most likely scenario.

When is a Good Time for Economic Austerity? / Economics / Economic Austerity

By: Michael_Pento

It is a basic rule of human nature not to voluntarily self inflict pain upon ourselves. If there is any way to avoid the day of reckoning, even if it means the eventual catastrophe will be much worse if we delay, we always choose to hold reality in abeyance. This principle applies to countries as well because the notion of embracing austerity on a national level goes against the grain of our collective psyche.

When Infinite Inflation Isn't Enough / Economics / Inflation

By: Peter_Schiff

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIf no one seems to care that the Titanic is filling with water, why not drill another hole in it? That seems to be the M.O. of the Bernanke Federal Reserve. After the announcement of QE3 (also dubbed "QE Infinity") created yet another round of media chatter about a recovery, the Fed's Open Market Committee has decided to push infinity a little bit further. The latest move involves the rolling over of long-term Treasuries purchased as part of Operation Twist, thereby more than doubling QE3 to a monthly influx of $85 billion in phony money starting in December. I call it "QE3 Plus" - now with more inflation!

Abolition of Fractional Reserve Banking, Chicago, My kind of town / Economics / Economic Theory

By: Alasdair_Macleod

First put forward by University of Chicago economists in 1933, this proposal calls for the abolition of fractional reserve banking and the replacement of bank credit with government money in order to do away with credit-induced business cycles.

Panic in Persia as Hyperinflation Hits Iran / Economics / HyperInflation

By: Steve_H_Hanke

For decades, the Iranian economy has been cobbled together by religious-bureaucratic regimes that have employed mandates, regulations, price controls, subsidies and a wide variety of other interventionist devices, in an attempt to achieve their goals. It's all been kept afloat – barely afloat – by oil revenues.

The Economics of Dracula / Economics / Economic Theory

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticlePeter C. Earle writes: Another Halloween is upon us, bringing its late autumnal burst of costumes, candy, and merriment. Ghosts, witches, mummies, zombies, Frankenstein's monster, film and television characters, and others will make appearances, as will the quintessential Halloween figure: Dracula.

Most people are familiar with Count Dracula's first literary appearance in Bram Stoker's 1897 Gothic horror novel Dracula. And many are also aware that the undead villain was loosely based on a real historical figure, Vlad Tepes III — "Vlad the Impaler" (sometimes "Vlad Dracula") — who ruled mid-15th century Wallachia, a region of modern day Romania.

The Conundrum of Malaysia's proposed Minimum Wage / Economics / Economic Theory

By: Sam_Chee_Kong

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDue to the scarcity of resources such as labor it is common for the government at times intervenes into the markets with the objective to prevent prices from rising and dropping  too much from the equilibrium price. The Government can influence the market supply and demand through setting the price floors and price ceilings in the market.

An example of price ceiling will be the rent controls on housing. By imposition of the rent control, the government hope to provide affordable housing for the lower income group. Similarly the imposition of minimum wage is another form of setting the price floor. This will help prevent wages from going below a certain level set by the government. The Government hope that such a move will help alleviate the income and also ease the burden  of the lower income group.
