The Great Myth of the Inflation Cure / Economics / Inflation

By: Douglas_French

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleParents probably dream of sending their kid to the University of Chicago. Next to the Ivy League or Stanford, the Chicago school is near the top of the heap. Only 27 percent of applicants are admitted. To be among the roughly 15,000 means prestige and an education to build a lifetime on. The cost for tuition and fees: $39,381. Room and board is another $12,000 or so. Add books and other stuff, and the total Chicago-school experience costs $54,290 a year.

Weak U.S. Credit Growth Early Sign of a Double-Dip Recession? / Economics / Double Dip Recession

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleShah Gilani writes: In spite of five straight quarters of loosening lending standards and strong U.S. credit growth data, actual loan growth in the U.S. economy is dangerously anemic.

What isn't apparent to investors is that the reason first-quarter gross-domestic-product (GDP) growth fell to 1.8% from the fourth quarter's more robust 3.1% rate is that loans and leases - which accounted for as much as 51.2% of U.S. GDP as recently as 2008 - fell to 45% of GDP in March.

U.S. Economy Crippled / Economics / US Economy

By: Tony_Pallotta

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleSomething happened in April that crippled the US economy. First it was the reports from four regional Fed manufacturing surveys showing a sharp slowdown in growth. Then weekly jobless claims began printing four handles each week with today's 474,000 on top of last week's 429,000. The real kicker was Wednesday's ISM Services that registered a very sharp drop off and now sits precariously close to contraction.

U.S. Economic Data to Ponder About Before the April Employment Report / Economics / US Economy

By: Asha_Bangalore

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe April employment report is scheduled for publication Friday, May 6.  An increase of 190,000 payroll jobs and a steady reading for the unemployment rate (8.8%) is our forecast.  The consensus forecast is an increase of 200,000 jobs and an unchanged jobless rate.  Nonfarm payrolls increased 216,000 in March, with the private sector accounting for a gain of 230,000 jobs.  Private sector hiring has risen at an impressive clip in the February-March period (average of 235,000 jobs).  Against this backdrop, the jobless claims numbers for the week ended April 30 were unexpected.  Initial jobless claims rose 43,000 to 474,000 and the prior week's estimate was raised to 431,000 from 429,000.

China's Economy Continues to Ascend But Watch Out for Speed Bumps, Investment Plays / Economics / China Economy

By: Money_Morning

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleJason Simpkins writes: Everyone knows that China's economy is hot. The only question is whether it may be a little too hot.

China posted yet another quarter of stellar economic growth in the first quarter of 2011, with its gross domestic product (GDP) growing 9.7%. However, analysts are worried about some of the side effects that have accompanied that growth- namely soaring inflation and the emergence of speculative bubbles.

Consumer Credit Could Launch Inflationary Spiral / Economics / Inflation

By: Dr_Jeff_Lewis

Recent comments from Walmart chief executive Mike Duke have investors on high alert.  This time, though, the news spreads well beyond Walmart.

At a company event in New York, Duke reminded the crowd that retail is softening, “we’re seeing core consumers under a lot of pressure,” and later added that it was rising fuel costs, just another component of monetary inflation, that was driving the sales loss.  Of particular interest to inflation watchers should be his comments that were mostly ignored.

ISM Non-Manufacturing Survey Shows Slowing U.S. Economy / Economics / US Economy

By: Asha_Bangalore

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe ISM non-manufacturing survey results point to slowing conditions in the service sector of the economy in April.  The composite index declined to 52.8 in April from 57.3 in March.  This is the second monthly decline and the lowest since July 2010 (see Chart 1).  The composite index is made up of four equally weighted components.  Of the four components, supplier deliveries advanced in April (53.0 vs. 51.5), while indexes tracking new orders (52.7 vs. 64.1 in March), business activity (53.7 vs. 59.7 in March) and employment (51.9 vs. 53.7) declined.

U.S. Economy Faces Domestic Economic Headwinds / Economics / US Economy

By: Tony_Pallotta

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIf you watched the move Inside Job then you realized as it ended that we were in fact living the sequel. The movie is far from over. The problems are far from being addressed. The solutions may be close but the leadership needed is no where near.

Week after week I may sound like a broken record. Like someone who has missed the bull run and trying to defend lost opportunity. At some point this market will turn. Those who said they will get out at or near the top will again be proven wrong. Their paper profits will turn into paper losses and they will argue they "cannot afford to sell." What has frustrated the bears will one day frustrate the bulls.
