Does The Economy Need a Referee? / Economics / Economic Theory

By: Jeff_Berwick

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleI recently appeared on Max Keiser’s "On The Edge" program.  Unbeknownst to the viewer, we were having major communication problems.  Max only could hear a small portion of what I said and I, likewise.  But, right at the very end of the interview the communications worked again… that’s when the interview finally got interesting.  Max stated that we “need a referee” in the economy.  I replied, “I disagree.  We don’t need a referee, I’m an anarchist…”

U.S. Inflation Shows Signs of Moderation in September / Economics / Inflation

By: Asha_Bangalore

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe Consumer Price Index (CPI) moved up 0.3% in September, following gains of 0.5% and 0.5% in July and August, respectively. The core CPI, which excludes food and energy, rose only 0.05% in September after a 0.24% increase in August. The September increase is the smallest gain since March 2011 (see Chart 1). These signs of moderation in inflation are noteworthy because they allow the Fed to focus on growth in the inflation-growth debate.

Fed’s Dual Mandate Not Workin, Inflation and Unemployment Are Rising / Economics / Inflation

By: Michael_Pento

We are all aware that the Fed has a dual mandate of stable prices and maximum employment. But what may come as a surprise to most is that they have a distinct preference in their mandates. The Federal Reserve under Ben Bernanke has a clear bias towards fulfilling the goal of maximum employment. Given the situation where unemployment is high and prices are relatively stable, the Fed has opted to pursue a policy of pursuing higher inflation in the hopes of engendering lower unemployment rates.

U.S. Economy Operating in Midst of a Long-term Slump, Depression / Economics / Great Depression II

By: John_Mauldin

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDr. Lacy Hunt and Van Hoisington of Hoisington Investment Management write a "Quarterly Review and Outlook" that is a must-read for me. This quarter they focus on US monetary policy, noting that "After peaking at 1.69 in the second quarter of 2010, M2 velocity declined for four consecutive quarters, and we estimate that a major contraction in velocity to 1.59 is likely for the third quarter." (I mentioned the importance of the velocity of money in judging inflation vs. deflation prospects in this week's e-letter, too.)

UK Inflation Accelerates to CPI 5.2%, Bankrupt Britain's Stealth Debt Default Continues / Economics / Inflation

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleUK CPI Inflation smashed through the 5% barrier by rising to 5.2% for September (4.5%), which is now approaching near triple the Bank of England's 2% target that continues to make a mockery of the central bank whose primary remit is supposedly price stability, where 3% was supposed to have been the maximum level a break above which was supposedly to trigger a series of panic measures to bring inflation under control, instead of which the Bank of England has instead opted to print money as it recently announced another £75 billion of electronic money printing that the fractional reserve banking system would eventually leverage to over £1 trillion, for the primary objective for the monetization of government debt, i.e. the same policy that the Weimar republic had been engaged in on its path towards hyperinflation. UK public debt is probably being monetized at the rate of 15% per annum with approx 30% monetized to date, only the deflation fools and the vested interest academic economists cannot or choose not to realise the highly inflationary consequences of governments monetizing their debt.

The Pitfall Of Rock Star Economists / Economics / Economic Theory

By: EconMatters

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe whole idea of going to University and studying Economics, replete with a thorough understanding of the importance of analyzing economic data points seems to be lost on these Rock Star Economists who dominate the financial media landscape these days. The only barometer these so called economists utilize is: “Oh, the stock market has been selling off hard for two weeks we must be in a recession”!

Hyperinflation, Can It Happen Here? / Economics / HyperInflation

By: John_Mauldin

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis Article"Bankruptcies of governments have, on the whole, done less harm to mankind than their ability to raise loans." - R.H. Tawney, Religion and the Rise of Capitalism, 1926

"By a continuing process of inflation, government can confiscate, secretly and unobserved, an important part of the wealth of their citizens. - John Maynard Keynes, Economic Consequences of Peace

"Unemployed men took one or two rucksacks and went from peasant to peasant. They even took the train to favorable locations to get foodstuffs illegally which they sold afterwards in the town at three or fourfold the prices they had paid themselves. First the peasants were happy about the great amount of paper money which rained into their houses for their eggs and butter… However, when they came to town with their full briefcases to buy goods, they discovered to their chagrin that, whereas they had only asked for a fivefold price for their produce, the prices for scythe, hammer and cauldron, which they wanted to buy, had risen by a factor of 50." - Stefan Zweig, The World of Yesterday, 1944.

Economic Crisis in Europe; Unpayable Debts, Impending Financial Insolvency / Economics / Euro-Zone

By: Bob_Chapman

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe big question is will Greece succumb to insolvency in November? Our answer is probably not. It should take 3 to 6 months but it is coming no matter how much money and credit is thrown at the problem. The markets on the short-term basis believe it is a coin toss. If the funds are not forthcoming you could see a 60-80 percent haircut on bond losses. If it is 3 to 6 months it will probably be 100%. Many in Europe believe the Merkel-Sarkozy team has a plan that will work, but as yet we do not know what that plan is. In spite of that the euro this past week rallied from $1.32 to $1.38 as the US dollar fell lower.

Bank of England's Quantitative Inflation Bankster's Paradise Inflationary Depression Economy / Economics / Inflation

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe Bank of England recently hit the panic button again by announcing another print run of £75 billion (electronically), which is in addition to the £200 billion already printed since March 2009. The news has been accompanied by much economic propaganda across the media sphere from the Bank Governor Mervyn King and Politicians including Osbourne and Cameron to the BBC's journalists / pseudo economists virtually all in unison reading from the same script of printing £75 billion being necessary to boost the UK economy in the face of the imminent threat of Recession / Deflation.

This Recession May Be Worse Than the Great Depression / Economics / Great Depression II

By: Barry_Elias

“It is difficult to make any kind of forecasts with any great degree of confidence. In my area it’s got to the point where it’s very hard to say anything...  but you’ve got to take a view, that’s what you’re paid for.”

According to a recent CNN report, the above quote was provided by a U.K. financial equity analyst with Oriel Securities. That statement is emblematic of how the financial industry has metastasized into a pathological cancer that mostly transferred and decimated wealth and value, rather than creating it.

China Continuing Economic Boom or Bursting Bubble? / Economics / China Economy

By: Casey_Research

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn a recent article, How China Ate America’s Lunch, Clif Carothers described what China has accomplished in the last thirty years:

In thirty short years, China was able to accelerate her GDP from $216 billion to $6 trillion. She amassed reserve capital of $3 trillion. She reversed America’s fortunes from the greatest creditor nation to the greatest debtor nation. She gutted America’s factories while creating the world’s largest manufacturing base in her own country. A measure of output that highly correlates to GDP is energy consumption. In June of this year, 2011, China surpassed the United States as the largest consumer of energy on the planet. While the US consumes 19% of the world’s energy, China consumes 20.3%.

The Folly of Economic Forecasting / Economics / Economic Theory

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticlePresident Obama's mostly forgotten jobs package would reportedly create 1.9 million new jobs, a one-percentage-point drop in the unemployment rate, and goose GDP by two percentage points. That was the prediction of Mark Zandi, chief economist of Moody's Analytics. You see, he has a model. He did a simulation, and presto — 1.9 million jobs!
