Why You Should Prepare for Econcomic Catastrophe / Economics / Inflation

By: Gary_North

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIt is not often that readers get a clear-cut choice between two forecasts. Most forecasts have wiggle room. Not the following.

1. The United States government will default.

2. The United States government will not default.

I hold the first position. John T. Harvey holds the second. He wrote a piece for Forbes defending his position: "It Is Impossible For The US To Default".

Mexico, the “Forgotten” Emerging Market / Economics / Mexico

By: Benjamin_Shepherd

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMexico is the closest emerging market to the US, after all, it’s right next door but it hasn’t been getting much attention from American investors.

A major reason is Mexico’s close linkage to the economic behemoth to its north. Mexico doesn’t just catch cold when America sneezes; it comes down with a nasty case of pneumonia.

Slow Painful Economic Death Spiral of Debasement and Despair / Economics / Great Depression II

By: James_Quinn

ARE YOU SEEING WHAT I’M SEEING?

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIs it just me, or are the signs of consumer collapse as clear as a Lowes parking lot on a Saturday afternoon? Sometimes I wonder if I'm just seeing the world through my pessimistic lens, skewing my point of view. My daily commute through West Philadelphia is not very enlightening, as the squalor, filth and lack of legal commerce remain consistent from year to year. This community is sustained by taxpayer subsidized low income housing, taxpayer subsidized food stamps, welfare payments, and illegal drug dealing. The dependency attitude, lifestyles of slothfulness and total lack of commerce has remained constant for decades in West Philly. It is on the weekends, cruising around a once thriving suburbia, where you perceive the persistent deterioration and decay of our debt fixated consumer spending based society.

Is the "Fiscal Cliff" a Threat to the U.S. Economy? / Economics / Taxes

By: Frank_Shostak

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe US Congressional Budget Office (CBO) said on August 22, 2012, that scheduled tax increases and spending cuts in 2013 would reverse the current modest economic recovery. The CBO and other experts are of the view that large government spending cuts and tax hikes will cause severe economic slump.

Hyperinflation Is Virtually Assured – John Williams / Economics / HyperInflation

By: Videos

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe Federal Reserve is talking about “unlimited QE,” or money printing, to boost employment. Economist John Williams says, “That’s absolutely nonsense. The Fed is just propping up the banks.” Williams says, “You’re likely going to see a dollar sell-off . . . That should evolve into hyperinflation.”

A Decade of Volatility: Demographics, Debt, and Deflation / Economics / Deflation

By: John_Mauldin

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleHarry Dent gave a speech I listened to a while back, and I got him to transcribe it for this week's Outside the Box. One thing about Harry is, you are never left wondering what he thinks about a topic. He sees inevitable demography-caused deflation in our future and makes some very intriguing arguments that deserve pondering.

At the end is a link to another report and a way to subscribe to his letter, if you are interested in more of his perspective. But first, I suggest you read this straightforward, informative presentation. There is also a link to the actual video of him speaking, should you prefer that.

ECB Calmed the Markets, Will China Act Next? / Economics / Economic Stimulus

By: Frank_Holmes

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAfter Mario Draghi announced the European Central Bank's new bond buying program, I was the first guest on CNBC Asia's Squawk Box to weigh in on this decision. I reiterated my stance that the endgame for Europe would be to print money, which will eventually lead to currency wars. These actions are positive for gold and also for increased economic activity.

How Down Economic Statistics Can Be Up if You Make the Rules, QE3? / Economics / Economic Statistics

By: John_Mauldin

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis Article "In the financial markets, the current economic cycle is still often viewed as if it is comparable to the far shorter cycles we have experienced since World War II. If that was indeed the case, the solution would be to implement fiscal and monetary stimuli now until lending to the private sector and thereby growth rise substantially. However, what is being overlooked is that the total debt/GDP ratio has risen so sharply over the past 75 years that the limit has probably been reached.

U.S. August Employment Data Contains Ample Evidence to Justify QE3 / Economics / Employment

By: Asha_Bangalore

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleBefore examining the nitty-gritty aspects of the August employment report, the main take away is that the overall tone of the numbers is disappointing. In addition, recent economic reports also cast a long shadow. The three consecutive monthly readings of the factory PMI that are below the critical mark of 50 (which denotes a contraction in factory activity) and the drop in July construction outlays are each sufficiently worrisome signals to win over the skeptics in the FOMC.

Are Euro-zone Rescue Efforts Too Late To Prevent A Global Recession? / Economics / Global Economy

By: Sy_Harding

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleEconomic growth continues to slow at an accelerated pace globally, not just in Greece and Spain, and other euro-zone countries in the headlines, but in the world’s ten largest economies of the U.S., China, Japan, Germany, France, the United Kingdom, Brazil, Italy, India, and Canada. The 17-nation eurozone as a whole is already in a recession. Many other nations are just barely keeping their heads above water.

Central Banks Attack on Aggregate Demand / Economics / Economic Stimulus

By: Andy_Sutton

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWe are now at least somewhat clear on one central bank’s plans for the economies under control. Save a significant reversal, the European Central Bank (ECB) is going to ‘nuclear’. That is to say the bank will engage on a program of bond buying in the Eurozone that is unlimited in scope, duration, and magnitude. A thoroughly anemic August jobs report has now applied even more pressure on the USFed to act when it meets next week. While the markets will undoubtedly cheer any indication of further monetization or a formal announcement itself with a flurry of high-frequency trading activity, this is nothing for Mr. and Mrs. Main Street to get too excited about. Why? The idea that money is being pumped into the economy sounds pretty good especially if some of it lands in your lap, right? Once again, things are not always what they seem and this is another prime example.

U.S. Economic Report Card / Economics / US Economy

By: Richard_Mills

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleLet's ask ourselves two simple questions;

  • How do economists, and Federal Reserve chief Ben Bernanke is an economist, discern whether an economy is growing, is vibrant and healthy? Well, for most economists it's a simple number, they use a country's Gross Domestic Product (GDP) to measure the state of the economy.
  • What's the most important thing for a politician? The answer is getting reelected.

A - That's simply not true. Domestic Chinese companies have made plenty of money. So have foreign companies like McDonalds, ABB, Coke, and even GM, which have been fabulously successful there because they've taken the time to localize their products.

Central Bankers Fail to Understand Forces Holding Back the Economy / Economics / Central Banks

By: Mike_Shedlock

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleCentral bankers Debating the Limits of Power in Jackson Hole are wondering what's holding back the economy.

"What is holding the economy back? Why is it that we've had such incredibly accommodative monetary policy for so long (but) we've had so little growth? I think it remains a puzzle," said Donald Kohn, who is now a senior fellow at the Brookings Institution think tank in Washington.

The U.S. Consumer Has In Fact Changed / Economics / US Economy

By: Tony_Pallotta

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe consumer represents 70% of total economic output. So as the bond market is to the capital market, so is the consumer to the economy. When the consumer sneezes, the economy catches more than just a cold.

Since the "end" of the 2008 recession something very interesting has happened to the US economy. The US consumer has actually changed their spending habits. They have actually started to live more within their means. And that is a very positive sign for a number of reasons both financially and socially.

America was a young nation that had a sense of purpose. National political strife was at a minimum; optimism was in the air.

Major advances in technology and engineering brought the country turnpikes for easier travel and "The Canal Craze" for more efficient commerce.

When Is Fractional-Reserve Banking Inflationary? / Economics / Inflation

By: Michael_S_Rozeff

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe takeaway here is that fractional-reserve banking is not inflationary per se. Fractional-reserve banking is inflationary when combined with central banks with unconstrained fiat money powers. The real culprit in inflation is an unconstrained central bank. Since central banks are created or enabled by governments, the real culprit in inflation is government. In turn, inflation cannot be controlled unless proper government, which really means proper law, is instituted and respected.
