If the Recession Has Ended, Why Is the Fed So Worried? / Economics / Double Dip Recession

By: Claus_Vogt

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe National Bureau of Economic Research (NBER) is the official arbiter of U.S. economic history. It sets the officially accepted dates for the beginning and the end of U.S. recessions. And on September 20, its Business Cycle Dating Committee published an important statement …

It finally declared the end of the recession that began in December 2007. Here is an excerpt from what it had to say:

Forget a Recession, The American Empire is Crumbling / Economics / Great Depression II

By: Graham_Summers

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleI look around me and I see an Empire in Decline.

The US economy is clearly in a depression… not a recession, not a recovery, but a DEPRESSION. More than 40 million Americans (12%) are on Food stamps. Nearly one in five of us are unemployed of underemployed. Folks go to Wal-Mart at 11PM waiting for their government checks to clear at midnight so they can buy baby formula, milk and other necessities.

U.S. Unemployment Rate Could be Higher in September vs. August / Economics / US Economy

By: Asha_Bangalore

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe Conference Board's Consumer Confidence Index slipped to 48.5 in September from 53.2 in August.  The September reading is the lowest since February 2010 (46.4).  The historical low is 25.3, registered in February 2009.  The University of Michigan Consumer Sentiment index also declined in September (66.6 vs. 68.9 in August).  The decline in consumer outlook appears to be tied to the prevailing conditions in the job market.  Although the recent recession officially ended in June 2009 and real GDP has posted growth for four straight quarters, the 9.6% unemployment rate in August is an elevated level playing an important role in the pessimistic outlook of consumers.

Q.E. Economic Engine Revs But Car Goes Nowhere / Economics / US Economy

By: Mike_Shedlock

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe economy is stuck in neutral so stepping on the QE gas pedal is highly unlikely to accomplish much except increase the noise level. Yet, the philosophy at the Fed seems to be, if gas doesn't work, give the engine more gas.

So the engine continues to rev louder and louder, and treasury yields drop, but that does not and will not put Americans back to work.

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAmbrose Evans-Pritchard the head economic poncho at the Telegraph now nearly 2 years from starting his mantra of deficit spending stimulus to prevent a debt deleveraging deflationary depression turns around and says that he has been wrong all along, that central banks such as the US Fed are focused on creating inflation rather than preventing deflation.

Chicago Fed National Activity Index Points to Slowing U.S. Economic Conditions / Economics / Double Dip Recession

By: Asha_Bangalore

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe Chicago Fed National Activity Index (CFNAI) dropped to -0.53 in August from -0.11 in July.  The August decline marks the fourth consecutive monthly decline of the CFNAI, after two monthly gains.  The 3-month moving average is -0.42 in August vs. -0.27 in July.  The cut-off mark for the 3-month moving average of the CFNAI is -0.7.  Readings above -0.7 after a period contraction suggest the recession has ended.  The July and August readings of the CFNAI point to weakening economic conditions.  The CFNAI is made up of 85 economic indicators classified under four categories - production and income, employment, unemployment and hours, personal consumption and housing, and sales, orders, and inventories.

A Candid Appraisal of the U.S. Economic Recovery / Economics / Economic Recovery

By: John_Browne

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOver the last two weeks, seemingly good economic news offered some shreds of optimism to a stock market that was desperate for a pick-me-up.

The week before last, the National Bureau of Economic Research declared that the US recession had ended back in June 2009. At the beginning of last week, news came in that month-on-month retail sales had risen by 0.4 percent. Combined with successful government debt auctions in the eurozone, increasing expectations that Republicans will take back the House (thereby blunting the leftward drift of Washington), and hopes that a new round of quantitative easing will pump up growth, mainstream analysts are developing a feeling of near-euphoria.

Has the U.S. Economy Improved in the Third Quarter? / Economics / Economic Recovery

By: Sy_Harding

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleEconomic growth in the second quarter slowed to an anemic 1.6% from 5.0% in the December quarter, and 3.7% in the first quarter.

Hopes have been that things began picking up again in the third quarter and that last year’s recovery from the recession is back on track.

Generating Economic Optimism, Put On a Happy Face? / Economics / US Economy

By: Douglas_French

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleSince two years of zero interest rates, $800 billion in fiscal stimulus, and the bailout of any business remotely viewed as systemically important haven't resuscitated the dead economy, now the tonic suggested is optimism. American business owners and consumers need to quit getting their daubers down and keep the sunny side up.

Consumer Credit Depression, CBO Deficit Armageddon, Government Warnings of Financial Fiascos! / Economics / Great Depression II

By: Martin_D_Weiss

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleFor my family, fiscal balance is not — and never was — a partisan issue. My father, for example, had little interest in politics but was passionate about savings, hard work and avoiding waste.

When I was a toddler, he used to sit me on his knee, teaching me and my older brother that money is not a toy or a game; it’s to be valued, kept in a piggy bank, and treated with due respect.

The Economic Impact of More Trade Agreements / Economics / Economic Theory

By: Pravda

Mauro Dias Lourenço writes:In the second half of the twentieth century, Brazil was one of the countries that grew fastest on the planet, especially until 1979, which includes the period of the so-called "economic miracle," from 1967 to 1973. The fact that the phenomenon coincided mostly with the period of military dictatorship (1964-1985) does not mean that resulted from an authoritarian regime in which the State has stimulated the development.

QE2, An Invitation to an Inflation Party? / Economics / Quantitative Easing

By: John_Mauldin

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThis week the Fed altered their end-of-meeting statement by just a few words, but those words have a lot of meaning. It seems they are paving the way to a new round of quantitative easing (QE2), if in their opinion the situation warrants it. A trillion dollars of new money could soon be injected into the system. Tonight we explore some of the implications of a new round of QE. Let's put our speculation hats on, gentle reader, as we are moving into uncharted territory. There are no maps, just theories, and they don't all agree. (Note: this letter may print a little long, as there are a lot of charts.)
