Debt, Inflation and Global Economy Systemic Risks, The ZIRP Trap / Economics / Global Economy

By: John_Mauldin

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleI get a lot of client letters from various managers and funds, as you might imagine. I read more than I should. But one that shows up every quarter or so makes me stop what I am doing and sit down and read. It is the quarterly letter from Hayman Advisors, based here in Dallas. They are macro guys (which I guess is part of the magnetic attraction for me), and they really put some thought into their craft and have some of the best sources anywhere. So today we take a look at their latest letter, where they cover a wide variety of topics, with cutting-edge analysis and sharp insight. I really like these guys, and suggest you take the time to read the entire letter.#

How Wisconsin Can Turn Economic Austerity into Prosperity / Economics / Economic Austerity

By: Ellen_Brown

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAs states struggle to meet their budgets, public pensions are on the chopping block; but they needn’t be. States can keep their pension funds intact and leverage them into many times that sum in loans, just as Wall Street banks do. They can do this by forming their own banks, following the lead of North Dakota, the only state either to have its own bank or to have a major budget surplus.

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleKerri Shannon writes: Any U.S. consumer that goes to the grocery store or the gas station on a regular basis knows that prices are rising.

Rick Santelli Needs Austrian Economics to Refute Insufferable Keynesians / Economics / Economic Theory

By: LewRockwell

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMark R. Crovelli writes: In the world of financial "journalism," CNBC’s Rick Santelli stands out as a refreshing and intelligent antidote to the hoards of perma-bulls, fed apologists, and chart sorcerers that otherwise pollute the financial airwaves. Apart from his wonderfully energetic and quirky manner of speaking, and apart from his fantastic last name, Santelli is never afraid to challenge economists, Fed officials, and other mainstream talking heads. Talking points that are taken for granted or left unchallenged by Santelli’s mind-numbing colleagues are passionately attacked by the bond-tracking Italian dervish.

Hyperinflationary Deluge Is Imminent / Economics / HyperInflation

By: Submissions

Tyler Durden writes: A deluge of an unprecedented magnitude is both inevitable and imminent. The consequences of the economic and political mismanagement will have a devastating impact on the world for a very long time. And the consequences will touch most corners of the world in so many different areas; economic, financial, social, political and geopolitical. The adjustment that the world will undergo in the next decade or longer, will be of such colossal magnitude that life will be very different for coming generations compared to the current social, financial and moral decadence. But history always gives us lessons and the one that is coming will be necessary and eventually good for the world. But the transition and adjustment will be extremely traumatic for most of us.

More U.S. Jobs Mirage / Economics / Employment

By: Paul_Craig_Roberts

The announcement on March 4 that 192,000 new jobs were created in February was greeted with a sigh of relief. But the number is just more smoke and mirrors, as I will show shortly.  First, let’s pretend the jobs are real.  What areas of the economy produced the jobs?

The Fed's Promise of Inflation Means More Unemployment... / Economics / Inflation

By: Bob_Chapman

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe Federal Reserve tells us we need inflation to overcome the overhang created by debt and its inflationary aspects. The inflation does not create jobs – it just distorts prices upward. We are told by the head of the Fed, Mr. Bernanke, that he can end inflation when he thinks it is necessary. That is not true, because if inflation ends deflation takes command and the economy collapses. There is no finely honed instrument for turning these two opposite effects on and off; thus, inflationary instruments have to be blunt and overused. That means more often than not that inflation is over implemented. This is the opposite of the Fed’s mandate of promoting price stability, full employment and in fact is used to prop up the banking system.

China – The 800-Pound Inflation Gorilla! / Economics / Inflation

By: Sy_Harding

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhen it comes to the growing global worries about inflation, it looks like it will be ‘As goes China so goes the world’.

China is the 2nd largest economy in the world, and rapidly gaining on the U.S. Among other statistics, it’s the world’s largest importer of copper, steel, cotton, and soybeans, and the world’s largest exporter of goods - to say nothing of being the world’s largest owner of U.S. debt.

Initial jobless claims fell 20,000 to 368,000 during the week ended February 27.  This reading is the lowest since May 2008 (see Chart 8).  Continuing claims, which lag initial jobless claims by one week, declined 59,000 to 3.774 million, the lowest since October 2008 (see Chart 9).  Both of these readings suggest a noticeable improvement in the labor market.  The number of applicants obtaining unemployment insurance under the special programs increased roughly 57,000 for the week ended February 13.
