U.S. Jobs Crisis - Skills, Education, and Employment / Economics / Employment

By: John_Mauldin

"The large shortfall of employment relative to its maximum level has imposed huge burdens on all too many American households and represents a substantial social cost. In addition, prolonged economic weakness could harm the economy's productive potential for years to come. The long-term unemployed can see their skills erode, making these workers less attractive to employers. If these jobless workers were to become less employable, the natural rate of unemployment might rise or, to the extent that they leave the labor force, we could see a persistently lower rate of labor force participation." - Janet L. Yellen, Vice-Chair, US Federal Reserve, March 4, 2013

Europe's Fragile Competition Quest, From QE To Bangladeshi Pay / Economics / Euro-Zone

By: Andrew_McKillop

Any leading politician in Europe, today, has a "competitivity" speech ready at the touch of the Talk button. Europe's CNN-lookalike business TV channels have almost daily "great debates" on how to make Europe competitive. Against what and who? More than 65% of trade for most countries in Europe is with other European countries - the EU is a free trade area and customs union. Many observers say that is the only good thing European union ever brought about.

Symptoms Don't Lie, The Economic Patient is Getting Sicker / Economics / Inflation

By: Peter_Schiff

A good doctor will not simply make a diagnosis based on measurements. The symptoms and complaints expressed by the patient are at least as important in making a determination as the data provided by diagnostic tools. When the data says one thing and the symptoms continuously say another, it makes sense to question the reliability of the instruments. This would be particularly true if the instruments are furnished by a party with a stake in a favorable diagnosis, say an insurance company on the hook for treatment costs. The same holds true for the U.S. economy. Although our government-supplied data suggests we are experiencing low inflation and modest economic growth, the economy shows symptoms of low growth, rising prices, and diminishing purchasing power.

Is Abenomics Going to Put Japan Economy Back on the Growth Map? / Economics / Japan Economy

By: John_Mauldin

In a special Outside the Box today, Keith Fitz-Gerald, Chief Investment Strategist for Money Morning, dissects "Abenomics," the radical, not to say outlandish, fiscal moves that the newly installed government of Japan is making. And Keith has a ringside seat: he spends much of each year in Japan.

In an attempt to cut the Japanese a little slack, Keith comes up with four things that will have to happen for Abenomics to work – but when all is said and done, he says, Abenomics is a recipe for disaster. That does not mean, however, that there is not plenty of opportunity here for short-term profit, and Keith offers a play that is a potential money maker in this volatile Japanese environment.

Is This the End of Cheap Chinese Labor? / Economics / China Economy

By: Money_Morning

Greg Madison writes: It's been the lament of everyone for years now: Cheap Chinese labor is killing the job market.

With lower wages and lax regulation, the giant sucking sound we heard was manufacturing jobs headed from Sheboygan to Shenzhen.

What Chained CPI Inflation Really Means To You / Economics / Inflation

By: Money_Morning

Jason Jenkins writes: When U.S. President Obama released his 2014 budget proposal last month, many Americans who paid attention to the details needed a measurement he used - "chained CPI" - explained.

That's because President Obama used chained CPI (consumer price index) to help shave off more than $1 trillion from spending on government programs.

The Case Against Economic Deflation / Economics / Deflation

By: Alasdair_Macleod

Regular readers will know I am in the inflation, possibly hyperinflation camp; but there are those that think the future is more likely to be deflationary. In the main this is the view of neoclassical economists, Keynesians and monetarists, who generally foresee a 1930s-style slump unless the economy is stimulated out of it.

April U.S. Jobs Report Begins to Show the Signs of the "Obamacare Effect" / Economics / Employment

By: Money_Morning

Diane Alter writes: Economists breathed a sigh of relief when the Labor Department reported a better than expected April employment report on Friday, but the details show cracks still remain.

Many of the job gains proved to be in lower paying fields and the average number of hours worked dipped.

QE Has Been and Will Be a Complete and Utter Failure / Economics / Quantitative Easing

By: Graham_Summers

The Fed is now blaming Congress for the failures of its QE policies.

This is to be expected, given that no one in the power elite ever accepts responsibility for their own failures. Congressional members blames each other (depending on which party they’re in), the Fed blames Congress, the White House blames the GOP, and on and on.

Keynes - Two Sides of the Same Debased Coin / Economics / Economic Theory

By: MISES

Hunter Lewis writes: In the beginning of The General Theory, John Maynard Keynes says that his ideas will no doubt be rejected because they are so novel and revolutionary. Toward the end of the same book, he seems to have forgotten this because now he says he is reviving the same centuries-old ideas that he had once dismissed as the most absurd fallacies. At least he acknowledges that he is changing his position, although he does not explain how his ideas can be new, revolutionary, and also centuries old.

The Next Great Economic Depression Has Already Started In Europe / Economics / Great Depression II

By: Submissions

Michael Snyder writes: The next Great Depression is already happening - it just hasn't reached the United States yet. Things in Europe just continue to get worse and worse, and yet most people in the United States still don't get it. All the time I have people ask me when the "economic collapse" is going to happen. Well, for ages I have been warning that the next major wave of the ongoing economic collapse would begin in Europe, and that is exactly what is happening. In fact, both Greece and Spain already have levels of unemployment that are greater than anything the U.S. experienced during the Great Depression of the 1930s.

Spain and France Facing Huge Unemployment / Economics / Unemployment

By: Submissions

Brett Chatz writes: No end is in sight regarding the current rise in unemployment in Spain and France.  Neither does there appear to be any economic panacea to reverse the European recession.  As in spread betting and contract for difference, the end product of the austerity program is determined by the accuracy of the European wager on diminishing national deficits rather than on addressing the unemployment problem. CFD trading is making an impact on share trading decisions, just as the economic outlook of the ECB impacts monetary decisions within individual countries.

Falling World Population And The New Economic Prosperity / Economics / Demographics

By: Andrew_McKillop

TWO PARADIGMS
The so-called Trente Glorieuse years (1948-1975) of fast economic growth, low annual budget deficits, almost zero unemployment, cheap oil, small or zero national trade deficits, innovation and liberty in the Western countries - was also a period of population growth. Ever since, political thinking confused this result - population growth - with its causes which included fast economic growth. Still today, nearly all western countries  have "natalist" policies trying to grow the national population, despite the reality of slow or no economic growth, sky high unemployment, and all the diseconomies of high population.

Has Sequestration Saved the U.S. Economy? / Economics / US Economy

By: Money_Morning

Martin Hutchinson writes: There's a Jamaican saying, "the higher the monkey climbs up the tree, the more his butt is exposed."

The point being that the more we rise, the more vulnerable we become.

That has truly come to pass for a pair of superstars of the dismal science. And it could have a big impact on how successfully (or unsuccessfully) we can get the U.S. economy back on the rails.

Why Eurozone Recession Is Important for America / Economics / Global Economy

By: InvestmentContrarian

George Soros knows a thing or two about making money from big bets. In 1992, Soros made a $10.00 short wager on the British pound and walked away with a billion dollars in profits.

Soros is now convinced Germany needs to rethink its strategy toward the sustainability of the eurozone and, in a draconian manner, believes the country should leave the euro.

Debt, Economic Growth, and the Austerity Debate / Economics / Global Debt Crisis 2013

By: John_Mauldin

Two weeks ago I wrote about the current debate over the 2010 paper by Ken Rogoff and Carmen Reinhart (hereinafter referred to as RR) on the correlation between debt and GDP growth. I said that the most important part of their work, which is the construction of an enormous database on debt and financial crises over the last few hundred years, was to be found in their book This Time Is Different and elsewhere. And their fundamental conclusion: debt is not a problem until it becomes one. And then it reaches a critical mass and you have what they called the Bang! moment.

GDP Economic Growth Statistics Bag of Tricks / Economics / Economic Statistics

By: Michael_Pento

If you're not happy with the stumbling U.S. economy all you have to do is just wait a few more months. It seems the Bureau of Economic Analysis (BEA) will perform a little hocus pocus on the GDP numbers starting in July 2013. According to the Financial Times, U.S. GDP would become 3% bigger due to the new change in its growth calculations.

America's Shadow Black Economy Doubles to $2 Trillion / Economics / US Economy

David Zeiler writes: Doing what they can to survive in a dour job market, millions of Americans exist in an underground economy that has ballooned to $2 trillion annually.

By "underground economy," we're talking about all the business activity that is not reported to the government, which includes a growing number of people getting paid for their labor in cash.

Paul Krugman - The Most Dangerous Man in the World / Economics / Economic Theory

By: Money_Morning

Keith Fitz-Gerald writes: When it comes to spending or saving, it's always a contentious debate.

But the risks are rarely as high as they are now for the U.S. and most major industrial nations. Such fundamental economic decisions will move a country forward (or backward) for decades, not months, and can't be undone quickly.

So let's choose the "winner" and "loser" of this debate carefully.
