Asian Economies, Where Are We Compared to Financial Crisis Sept 15, 2008? / Economics / Asian Economies

By: John_Mauldin

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe developed world seems to be focused on Europe, and while the next crisis in indeed brewing there, we must not forget that Asia is a large part of the future and major contributor to world GDP. My friends at GaveKal are based in Hong Kong and have staff in most Asian countries or are in them on a regular basis, so I read their Asian views with interest. Today’s Outside the Box is their latest Five Corners – Asia edition, where they look at China, Thailand, and Vietnam, as well as Asian growth, contrasting it to that of the "developed world."

AVA Investment Analytics Global Economic Analysis / Economics / Great Depression II

By: Mike_Stathis

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe incompetency of Washington was most recently demonstrated by the debt ceiling drama. Now the dog-and-pony show staged by the ECB, EU and IMF has added to waning consumer and investor sentiment across the globe to create a crisis in confidence. The timing of this charade could not have been worse, as this unnecessary turn of events has hit the global economy during a period when it was predetermined to weaken on its own force due to the depletion of stimulus funds. As a result of these seemingly intentional destructive actions, most of the economic gains made as the result of tax subsidies and bailout funds since the financial crisis of 2008 have been erased.

China Economy Going Bust: Tic Toc / Economics / China Economy

By: Kel_Kelly

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleChina is in the process of allowing its currency to rise. The reason for this is to address the worsening inflation rates in the country. Allowing the yuan to rise will indeed stop, or slow, inflation, but the way this fix works is not the way that is usually assumed. Neither will the effects of this policy be what most observers assume, i.e., just milder inflation. Instead, it will be an outright economic bust.

Hypothetical U.S. Employment and Unemployment Charts from the Atlanta Fed / Economics / Unemployment

By: Mike_Shedlock

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleInquiring minds are checking out an interesting "what if" post by Dave Altig, senior vice president and research director at the Atlanta Fed. Please consider Two more job market charts

Payroll employment growth has averaged about 110,000 jobs a month since February 2010, the jobs low point associated with the crisis and recession. This growth level compares, unfavorably, with the 158,000 jobs added per month during the last jobs recovery period from August 2003 (the low point following the 2001 recession) through November 2007 (the month before the recent recession began). One hundred and ten thousand jobs a month compares favorably, however, to the 96,000 job creation pace so far this year.

The Paradox of Deflation Facing Global Investors / Economics / Deflation

By: David_Knox_Barker

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe primary purpose for markets is to allow buyers and sellers to reach a deal, strike a price. Anything that distorts this purpose, leads the world inexorably toward crisis and chaos. Free markets best determine prices based on how many sellers there are of goods, services and assets and how much they have available to sell, and of course how many buyers there are and how much those buyers want to buy and are willing to pay. Truly free markets balance supply and demand. The economic calculation problem means governments cannot determine accurately how to intervene.

U.S. September Non-Farm Payrolls Report in Pictures / Economics / Employment

By: Jesse

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleA remarkably 'clean' report with the only anomalies being a lower than normal Birth-Death imaginary jobs adjustment from the BLS, which subtracted 43,000 jobs, and a seasonality adjustment that appeared a little on the high side.

An exogenous factor was the addition of 45,000 striking telecommunication workers who returned to their jobs. So the organic jobs growth was weak.

The Way Out of Our Economic Mess / Economics / US Economy

By: Terry_Coxon

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleTerry Coxon, Casey Research writes: "A rock and a hard place" is a long-running theme of Casey Research publications. It refers to the dilemma the US government has wandered into with its continued policy of rescue inflation. The "rock" is what will happen if the Fed pauses for long in printing still more money – the collapse of an economy burdened by an accumulation of mistakes that rescue inflation has been keeping at bay. The "hard place" is the disruptive price inflation that becomes more likely (and likely more severe) with every new dollar the Fed prints to keep the effects of those mistakes suppressed.

High Unemployment Means More Job-Killing Taxes / Economics / Unemployment

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleKerri Shannon writes: The unemployment problem in this country has gotten so bad it's starting to sustain itself.

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe #1 Historical Question Is Unanswered
I do not refer here to a historical question raised by a book said to be revealed by God. I refer to a question that historians have struggled with for a century without any agreed-upon solution. It is this:

What happened between 1780 and 1820 that produced compound per capita economic growth in Britain and the United States of approximately 2% per year?

Bernanke Presents a Pessimistic Economic View, Reassures Fed Stands Ready to Support / Economics / US Economy

By: Asha_Bangalore

At the outset, Bernanke’s testimony to the Joint Economic Committee listed positive developments of the current economic recovery – improvement of factory production, narrowing of the trade gap compared with the period prior to 2007, strong equipment and software spending, and a more sound banking and financial sector.  The rest of the testimony was significantly more subdued and pessimistic.  He reiterated his observations from last month that consumers are very cautious in their spending decisions as their net worth has dropped and that households “continue to struggle with high debt burdens and reduced access to credit.” More importantly, Bernanke sees “more sluggish job growth in the period ahead.”  He also noted that the FOMC has revised down its projections of GDP growth.  The weak housing market was also part of the testimony.  In the prepared testimony and Q&A session, Chairman Bernanke stressed the importance of solving housing market issues.

War and Inflation in US History, Not Worth a Continental / Economics / Inflation

By: Richard_Mills

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleInflation is caused by an increase in the money supply - the rate of inflation is determined by the quantity of goods vs. the money supply - more money chasing the same amount of, or fewer goods, causes price increases. The higher the price increases the higher the rate of inflation is said to be.

Wars cause inflation - war affects everything from international trading to labor costs to quantity of available consumer goods to product demand because governments:

This Economist is Forecasting a Recession, And He's Never Been Wrong / Economics / Double Dip Recession

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDavid Zeiler writes: The U.S. economy is "tipping into a new recession" and there's nothing President Barack Obama or the U.S. Federal Reserve can do to prevent it, according to Lakshman Achuthan, co-founder of the Economic Cycle Research Institute (ECRI).

Now, if you're wondering why you should believe this prediction ahead of others then there's something you should know: According to The Economist, Achuthan's predictions on the direction of economy - either toward recession or recovery - have never been wrong.
