Wholesale Price Index Lifted by Higher Energy, Food and Cigarette Prices / Economics / Inflation

By: Asha_Bangalore

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe Producer Price Index (PPI) for Finished Goods rose 1.1% in December after a 0.8% increase in the prior month.  According to the Labor Department, about 75% of the increase in finished goods price index was from the 3.7% jump of the energy price index.  Of the energy items in this index, gasoline prices posted the largest increase.  Higher food prices (+0.8%) also made a contribution to the overall wholesale price index, a large part of this increase (75%) is traced to the 22.8% jump in prices of fresh and dry vegetables.  In 2010, the wholesale price index has risen 4.0% after a 4.3% jump in 2009 and a nearly 1.0% drop in 2008.

Economic Ruination from Money Creation to Price Inflation / Economics / Inflation

By: Richard_Daughty

John Rubino at Dollar Collapse.com obviously thinks, like I do, that inflation is a Terrible, Terrible Thing (TTT).

To prove it, and to simultaneously prove to my wife, kids, relatives, co-workers and neighbors that I am not the "weirdest man who ever lived" as concerns inflation, I call him up on the phone!

No Such Thing as Cost-Push Inflation; Demographics and the "Demand for Money" / Economics / Deflation

By: Mike_Shedlock

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn China's Foreign Exchange Reserves Jump by Record $199 Billion; Cost Push Inflation from China? Don't Count On It! I stated ....

Strangely, nearly everyone insists inflation is roaring in the US instead of where it is roaring, China and India. The alleged proof of US inflation is a series of widely circulated charts of various commodity prices even though there has been little-to-no passthrough on any consumer prices except gasoline, and home prices are once again falling like a rock.

America's Economic and Social Crisis, No Fed Bailout for Main Street / Economics / Credit Crisis 2011

By: Ellen_Brown

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe Federal Reserve was set up by bankers for bankers, and it has served them well.  Out of the blue, it came up with $12.3 trillion in nearly interest-free credit to bail the banks out of a credit crunch they created.  That same credit crisis has plunged state and local governments into insolvency, but the Fed has now delivered its ultimatum: there will be no “quantitative easing” for municipal governments.

Where Profit Comes From / Economics / Economic Theory

By: George_Reisman

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleLabor unions like to argue that the payment of higher wages is to the self-interest of employers because the wage earners will use their higher wages to make additional purchases from business firms, thereby increasing the sales revenues and profits of business firms. However, wrong and foolish it may be, this is an argument worth analyzing in some detail, because it can provide a gateway to a discussion of the actual sources of profit in the economic system.

U.S. Inflation Set to Soar as the Country's Chief Export Boomerangs Back Home / Economics / Inflation

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMartin Hutchinson writes: While prices for food and energy have been rising, inflation in the United States has remained relatively subdued.

One common explanation for that phenomenon is that U.S. inflation has been "exported" to China and elsewhere through the U.S. Federal Reserve's monetary policy. And given the perennial U.S. balance of payments deficit, it's good to know the country has found something it can successfully export!

Rising Consumer Inflation: The New World Order By Commodity / Economics / Inflation

By: Dian_L_Chu

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleEver since the Great Recession, inflation has been put on the back burner, and deflation is seen as the greatest risk to the U.S. economy. Even as recent as Friday, Jan 7, Federal Reserve Chairman Bernanke told the Senate Budget Committee that low inflation/deflation was a concern, as well as unemployment (more on the jobs situation here.)

Global Aging and the Crisis of the 2020s, Demographic Storms Ahead / Economics / Demographics

By: John_Mauldin

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleFrom the fall of the Roman and the Mayan empires to the Black Death to the colonization of the New World and the youth-driven revolutions of the twentieth century, demographic trends have played a decisive role in many of the great invasions, political upheavals, migrations, and environmental catastrophes of history. By the 2020s, an ominous new conjuncture of demographic trends may once again threaten widespread disruption. I am, of course, talking about global aging, which is likely to have a profound effect on economic growth, living standards, and the shape of the world order.

Long Shadows Cast Over US Economy 2011 / Economics / US Economy

By: Jim_Willie_CB

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleNumerous are the threats to the USEconomy and US financial structures. Many are hidden threats, subtle challenges to undermine increasingly fragile support systems, planks, and cables that hold the system together. The year 2011 will be when the system breaks in open visible fashion, when the explanations that justify it sound silly and baseless, when the entire bond world endures major crashes. All thing financial are inter-related. Recall that in summer 2007, the professor occupying the US Federal Reserve claimed the subprime mortgage crisis was isolated.

Hoover and Bush, Interventionism Turns Crisis into Great Depression / Economics / Great Depression II

By: Mark_Thornton

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe most basic rule of economic policy is to allow prices to adjust to market conditions. This maintains Say's Law and produces what Frédéric Bastiat called economic harmony.

Furthermore, unhampered markets minimize distortions and disruptions introduced by external forces. Most importantly, the unhampered price system minimizes the impact of the business cycle on the economy. This paper examines two historical episodes where interventionist policies turned business cycle corrections into depressions.[1]

John Williams Eyes Gold as Insurance Against Hyper Inflation Armageddon / Economics / HyperInflation

By: The_Gold_Report

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleStronger corporate balance sheets, tighter reins on costs and better stock performance in 2010 haven't swayed ShadowStats Editor John Williams' assertion that the bottom-bouncing economy is weaker than ever, with specters of hyperinflation and systemic financial collapse on the not-so-distant horizon. As he says in this exclusive Gold Report interview, the yellow metal is his "insurance against Armageddon"—or at least the single best asset that people can use to ride out the storm.

Following the Efficient-Markets Hypothesis into Absurdity / Economics / Economic Theory

By: Robert_Murphy

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAustrians in the tradition of Mises and Rothbard stress the resilience of a free-market economy, and they believe that the institution of private property — along with the profit-and-loss test — will steer resources into their most valuable niches.

However, most Austrians stop short of following Chicago School economists' advocacy of the "efficient-markets hypothesis" (EMH). In its most extreme form, the EMH becomes a caricature of itself in which asset bubbles are not just unlikely but logically impossible.
