U.S. Factory Production Moves Ahead in October, Energy Costs Pushing Up Inflation / Economics / Economic Recovery

By: Asha_Bangalore

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIndustrial production held steady in October after a 0.2% drop in the prior month. Activity at the nation's mines (-0.1%) and utilities (-3.4%) declined in October and offset the gains in manufacturing output. Factory production rose 0.5% in October after holding nearly steady for two consecutive months. Nearly all major categories of manufacturing posted gains in October - autos (+5.0%), wood products (+2.5%), machinery (+1.4%), computers (+0.7%) and furniture (+0.8%). The small reversal of a decelerating trend (year-to-year change, see chart 1) is the important aspect to note from the October data.

Economies are Crumbling as Governments Play Musical Chairs with Money Printing / Economics / Quantitative Easing

By: Captain_Hook

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIf there were a truism to fit a broad cross-section of behaviors in our society today, the catchphrase ‘desperate men do desperate things’ fits well, for sure. This is because you can see it everywhere on an increasing basis as economies of all shapes and sizes disintegrate. And it spreads like a disease, reaching all quarters of our society(s), in one way or another, propagated at the core by greedy money-center bankers and their political oligarchs hopelessly attempting to prevent a collapse of the larger fiat currency economy, hegemony economics, and US Dollar ($) supremacy. Here, it’s important to understand that when the US can no longer print the money to pay its bills the present game of musical chairs will cease and centralization will quickly reverse into regionalism, returning us to more primitive but sound economies.

The Age of Debt Deleveraging Deflation, Decade of Slow Economic Growth / Economics / Deflation

By: John_Mauldin

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleBefore we get into this week’s outstanding Outside the Box, I want to comment on QE2 and the efforts by some Republican economists to urge legislators to get involved to stop it (see the front page of Monday’s Wall Street Journal). That pushes my comfort zone a little too much.

First, I am not a fan of QE2. Never have been. If it had been my call, I would have punted and told the guys in the Capital that the ball was in their court to get their fiscal house in order, because that is the main source of the problem. But Bernanke and the Fed felt they had to “do something,” to demonstrate they got the seriousness of the situation. If the only policy tool you have left is the hammer of printing money, then the world looks like a nail.

Bernanke and Greenspans Pretense of Economic Knowledge Continues / Economics / Economic Theory

By: Douglas_French

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleTwo years after the Wall Street '08 come-apart, with the economy still lingering in a funk, the Federal Reserve announced, a day after the elections, what the Associated Press called "a bold effort to invigorate the economy": the purchase of $600 billion of government bonds from now through the middle of next year, at a pace of $75 billion a month. This $600 billion is on top of the $250–$300 billion the Fed will be buying to reinvest proceeds from its mortgage portfolio.

The Great “Depression” / Economics / Economic Depression

By: Howard_Katz

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleToday I would like to continue my discussion of the (so-called) Great Depression as this is the giant lie which is behind most of the other economic lies which have deceived so many people and cost them so much money.

What is a depression?  It is a period in a country’s economic history where the large majority of the people become poorer.  It is alleged that such a period occurred in the early 1930s.  I have pointed out previously that Economic Statistics of the United States, Colonial Times to 1970, reports that during this period Americans shifted from margarine to butter.  They increased their per capita meat consumption (from 129 lb to 144 lb.).  And they gave (substantially) more to charity.  Further, real wages rose during this period, and the savings of the average American increased in value (buying power) by 30%.  This does not sound like a getting poorer to me.

Bank of England Inflation Propaganda Suggests Invisible Depression, Bankrupting Ireland Seeks Bailout / Economics / Inflation

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe Bank of England released its latest quarterly inflation report that shows that after a near year of temporary CPI Inflation mantra at above 3%, Mervyn King, the Bank Governor now expects CPI to spike to 3.5% during 2011 before falling back to below its 2% target and therefore implying that the real threat that the press and population should concern themselves with is DEFLATION.

If only we existed in a Keynesian vacuum universe, then the current Administration's economic policies may have actually succeeded in fixing the ailing, debt-ridden economy! Here are some of the reasons why:

Global Monetary Stalemate, Quantitative Easing Won't Work / Economics / Quantitative Easing

By: Bob_Chapman

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMr. Bernanke is trying to avoid the Japanese experience of the past 20 years. Underlying deflation is being offset again, as it has been for the past eight years, by creating more money and credit. The only one lose to our prediction of mid-May of $5 trillion over two years is Keynesian economist Paul Krugman. He said the Fed would need $6 trillion. The Republicans seized the House and all that has really been accomplished is gridlock, the end of stimulus and a cut of perhaps $100 billion in debt.

Modern Economists Failed at Disaster Recovery / Economics / Economic Theory

By: Barry_Elias

When a recent Nobel Laureate in Economics, a current Federal Reserve Board president, and MIT economist with the National Bureau of Economics (NBER) agree — take serious note: It is quite rare.

"I believe that during the last financial crisis, macroeconomists (and I include myself among them) failed the country, and indeed the world,” Dr. Narayana Kocherlakota, President of the Minneapolis Federal Reserve Bank, wrote this past May.

U.S. Federal Budget Deficit Reduction Plan Analysis / Economics / Economic Austerity

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMartin Hutchinson writes: The two leaders of U.S. President Barack Obama's Deficit Commission Wednesday produced a proposal for deficit cuts that slaughtered a lot of budgetary "sacred cows" and cut $3.8 trillion off the deficit over the next 10 years.

And the cuts were even made in just the right ratio – with $3 of spending cuts for every $1 of tax increases.

Ireland Goes Bust, Irish Bank Run / Economics / Credit Crisis 2010

By: Mike_Whitney

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThere was a bank run in Ireland on Wednesday. LCH Clearnet, a London based clearinghouse, surprised the markets by announcing it would increase margin requirements on Irish debt by 15 percent. That's all it took to send investors fleeing for the exits. Yields on Irish bonds spiked sharply as banks tried to close positions or raise the capital needed to meet the new requirements. The Irish 10-year bond soared to 8.9 percent by day's end, more than 6 percentage points higher than "risk free" German sovereign debt. The ECB will have to intervene. Ireland is on its way to default.

China's Trade Imbalance Threatens Global Economic Stability / Economics / Global Economy

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleKerri Shannon writes: China announced yesterday (Wednesday) that its trade surplus grew 60.7% in October from the month before as efforts to rebalance its economic growth this year have failed. Furthermore, recent policy tightening measures mean domestic demand is unlikely to pick up in the near future.

"The rebalancing of China's economy has an awfully long way to go – in fact it's hardly even got started," Mark Williams, an economist at Capital Economics Ltd. who previously worked at the U.K. Treasury as an adviser to China, told Bloomberg. "In normal circumstances, the world might be willing to wait, but not when the likes of the U.S. are struggling with very high unemployment."

U.S. Jobless Claims Decline and Trade Gap Narrows, Exports Continue Boost Economy / Economics / Economic Recovery

By: Asha_Bangalore

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleInitial jobless claims fell 24,000 to 435,000 during the week ended November 6.  Initial jobless claims have dropped in three out of the last four weeks.  The 4-week moving average at 446,500 is the lowest since September 13, 2008 (see chart 1).  Each of these developments is noteworthy and encouraging.  In addition, the date is haunting because this is the last weekly reading before the Lehman Brothers debacle in September 2008.
