Capital Formation and the Fiscal Cliff, Economic Perception Vs Reality / Economics / Economic Theory

By: John_Mauldin

In today’s economic environment, we often complain about volatility and uncertainty, but there is one thing I think we can be fairly certain of: taxes are going up. I constantly try to impress upon my kids, most of whom are now adults, that ideas and actions have consequences. In today’s letter we will look at some of the consequences of an increase in taxes. Please note that this is different from arguing whether taxes should rise or fall. For all intents and purposes that debate is over. As investors, our job is to deal with reality. We must play the hand we are dealt. Taxation is a complex issue, but let’s see if a few word pictures can help us understand what we face.

Age Of Illusionists, Focus on Government Spending and Money Supply / Economics / Money Supply

By: Steve_H_Hanke

Watching Barack Obama and Mitt Romney duel in the presidential campaign should have convinced the spectators that we live in an age of illusionists. Few of the assertions and conjectures thrown around have been subjected to what the political chattering classes deem to be the indignity of factual verification.

Economic Deception At The Heart Of The U.S. Fiscal Cliff / Economics / Government Spending

By: Dan_Amerman

Truth Testing The Narrative

Among many politicians and much of the media there is an accepted narrative about  deficits, taxes and the so-called "Fiscal Cliff". It goes something like the following:

"The United States is running massive deficits that are bankrupting the country.  These deficits are so high because of the Bush era tax cuts.

Economics Can't Violate the Laws of Physics: Rising Systemic Risk and Multiple Black Swans / Economics / Economic Theory

By: DK_Matai

In the aftermath of the colossal damage caused around the world by extreme weather induced floods, fuel and food shortages, questions are constantly being posed about the improbability of endless growth of human population and over consumption on a planet with finite resources.  There are limits to growth and humanity is colliding with them head on.  High fuel and food prices and floods caused by climate chaos are all symptomatic of those growth limits.

Ireland and Iceland : A Tale of Two PIIIGS / Economics / Economic Theory

By: Frank_Shostak

There were a lot of commentaries regarding the Ireland and Iceland 2008–2012 financial crises. Most of the commentaries were confined to the description of the events without addressing the essential causes of the crises. We suggest that providing a detailed description of events cannot be a substitute for economic analysis, which should be based on the essential causes behind a crisis.

Student Loans, the Next Debt Bubble / Economics / Global Debt Crisis 2012

By: John_Mauldin

For the last year, as I travel around, it seems a main topic of conversation is “Where will my kids find jobs?” It is a topic I am all too familiar with. Where indeed? Youth unemployment in the US is 17.1%. If you are in Europe the problem is even more pronounced. The basket case that is Greece has youth unemployment of 58%, and Spain is close at 55%. Portugal is at 36% and in Italy it’s 35%. France is over 25%. Is this just a cyclical symptom of the credit crisis? Much of it clearly is, but I think there is something deeper at work here, an underlying tectonic shift in the foundation of employment. And that means that before we see a true recovery in the unemployment rate, there must be a shift in how we think about work and training for the future of employment. This week is the first of what will be occasional letters over the coming months with an emphasis on employment. (This letter will print a little longer, as there are a lot of charts.)

U.S. Recession Forecast 2013 / Economics / Recession 2013

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMartin Hutchinson writes: Everyone is worried about the damage the "fiscal cliff" might do to the U.S. economy in 2013, but the reality is that's only one of the potential problems in our 2013 U.S. Economic Forecast.

At present there appears to be four problems-- aside from the fiscal cliff-- that could throw the U.S. economy into recession in 2013.

Bulgaria Hyperinflation Fifteen Years Later / Economics / HyperInflation

By: Steve_H_Hanke

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe first of July marked the anniversary of a momentous day in Bulgarian history. On that day, fifteen years ago, Bulgaria installed its currency board system (CBS), finally ending its hyperinflation, which had peaked with a monthly inflation rate of 242%, in February 1997.

But, I am getting ahead of myself. As the Soviet Union and allied communist countries began to collapse, I anticipated that a big issue facing the newly-liberated, former communist countries would be inflation, and the instability associated with it. In consequence, I shifted the emphasis of my research program from privatization to currency reform.

Hurricane Sandy and the Economy: The Lesson from Katrina / Economics / US Economy

By: PhilStockWorld

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDoug Short writes: In studying the data for my latest Big Four Economic Indicators update, I wondered how much impact Hurricane Sandy might have had on the economy in October and what to expect in the months ahead. I thought it would be interesting to take a close look at the behavior of the Big Four in the months before and after Hurricane Katrina hit the coast in August 2005.

The Fall Of Micro- And Macro- Economics And The Rise Of Mega-Economics / Economics / Great Depression II

By: Dr_R_M_Mathew

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe Opening Note
This is the second part of my recent work, appeared in the Market Oracle (UK), ‘The Great Depression II Lasting Till 2025’ (www.marketoracle.co.uk/Article37335.html) . In spite of the Stimulus Packages of America, European Countries , India , China and etc besides the brain storming sessions of the World Economic Forum, deliberations of the UN, IMF. OECD and World Bank and lecturing of the Nobel Laureates in Economics and advices of the Management Gurus, the teaching and research works of the Harvard or Stanford Business Schools, the world is at the grip of the Great Depression II Lasting at least 2025. This is an inquiry in to the underlying causes of the Global Economic Crisis and Failure of Economists, Management Experts and Rulers and Political Leadership. It also suggests some alterative global strategies under ‘Mega Economics’ in stead of the familiar Micro and Macro Economics, including Keynesian Economics.

Why Governments Always Punt on Economic Austerity / Economics / Economic Austerity

By: Michael_Pento

The simple reason why governments never freely decide on fiscal responsibility is because fixing their well-entrenched problems of over borrowing and spending means that their already fragile economies would be temporarily thrown over a cliff.

An Economic 'Sell' Signal by Christmas? / Economics / Recession 2013

By: Clif_Droke

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWith the U.S. presidential election out of the way, the economy has taken center stage lately and for good reason: the economy typically benefits during a presidential election year while the 4-year Kress cycle is also peaking. The latest economic reports strongly indicate that the U.S. consumer has benefited (or at least feels he has benefited) from this year's presidential cycle and the loose money it typically brings.

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.
