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.

By: Money_Morning

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:

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.

Why The Inflationists PROBABLY Have It Wrong, For Now / Economics / Deflation

By: David_Haas

Many people are trying – with increasing desperation – to discern the future and plan correctly for the economic environment we’re most likely to find ourselves experiencing.

My continued bets have been that deflation will prevail, at least in the early years of the great collapse, and nothing has yet occurred that changes my view.

U.S. Consumer Spending in August Puts Q3 Change at Tepid Mark / Economics / US Economy

By: Asha_Bangalore

Real consumer spending held steady in August inclusive of a 0.1% increase in spending of durable goods and services and a 0.4% drop in purchases of services. Chairman Bernanke’s concern about the decelerating trend of consumer spending is justified. Real consumer spending grew only 1.77% from a year ago and real disposable income also shows a loss of momentum (see Chart 4). The July-August consumer spending numbers point a tepid increase in consumer spending in the third quarter, roughly 1.5%. This is slightly higher than the 0.7% increase in the second quarter but it is not a barnburner by any means.

Infrastructure Spending – What’s Not to Like? / Economics / Infrastructure

By: Asha_Bangalore

The American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) published a study last month pointing out the cost of failure to address the infrastructure needs of the nation. The study concludes that failing to invest in America’s roads, bridges, and transportation system would cost the nation $3.1 trillion in lost GDP, 877,000 in lost jobs, and a significant reduction in productivity by 2020. The graphic below is a summary of the impact of the failure to address the nation’s surface transportation infrastructure.

The Economy’s Real Problems! / Economics / Double Dip Recession

By: Sy_Harding

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleSome of this week’s economic reports provided at least small sparkles in the dark shadows that have dominated economic reports so far this year.

On Thursday, the Commerce Department reported the economy grew at an annualized rate of 1.3% in second quarter, a bit better than the 1.0% it had previously reported. The Labor Department reported new weekly unemployment claims fell by 37,000 last week to 391,000, the first time new weekly claims have been under 400,000 a week since April. And the University of Michigan’s Consumer Sentiment Index ticked up to 59.4 in September after tumbling to near a three-year low of 55.7 in August.

Emerging Markets Provide Blueprint for Sustained Growth / Economics / Emerging Markets

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDavid Zeiler writes: The United States should look at emerging markets for clues on how to sustain economic growth, according to U.S. Federal Reserve Chairman Ben S. Bernanke.

While the advanced economies of the world have stagnated since 2008, countries like China, Brazil and parts of Southeast Asia have enjoyed growth rates in the 7% to 9% range. Although several have slowed this year, they're still faring better than the economies of the United States and Europe.
