Bernanke's Waterloo; Deflationary Collapse or Inflationary Disaster? / Economics / Deflation

By: Mike_Shedlock

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe September Contrary Investor It's A Long Hard Road is an exceptional marriage of debt-deflation concepts, long-wave K-Cycles, credit cycles, and Austrian economic thinking. Here is a lengthy snip of several key points with permission.

If there has been one consistent theme since day one at CI, it has been our perhaps near myopic focus and focal point highlight of importance that is the macro credit cycle. Does this play into long wave and perhaps Kondratieff cycle or Austrian economics type of thinking? Call it what you will, but elements of all of these schools of thought very much overlap. Right to the point, we believe THE key thematic construct to keep in mind as a macro cycle decision making overlay and character point dead ahead is the now more than apparent collision of the generational long wave credit cycle with the current short term business cycle of the moment. Without trying to reach for melodrama, this is the first time a multi-decade long wave credit cycle has collided with the short-term business cycle since the late 1920’s/early 1930’s.

Europe's Economic and Debt Woes in Pictures / Economics / Global Debt Crisis

By: Asha_Bangalore

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleEquity prices around the world declined today largely in response to the persistent debt crisis in Europe. Let us set the facts straight, Greece is a problem member of EU-27 but wiping out Greece from the European Union (EU) with a magic wand is not the solution. Central government debt of EU-26 as a percent of GDP is marginally different from that of EU-27 (see Chart 1). In other words, the EU’s debt woes will plague financial markets until a solid solution is put into place in the near term.

We see probably a 60 percent probability of recession next year, and, unfortunately, we’re running out of policy tools.....and sovereigns cannot bail out their own distressed banks because they are distressed themselves."

Monetary Tsunami Is Coming / Economics / Inflation

By: Frank_Shostak

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn his speech at Jackson Hole, Wyoming, on August 26, 2011, the Fed chairman disappointed most pundits. He did not promise another massive infusion of fake money, i.e., QE3. I suspect that a strengthening in bank lending is an important factor behind the Fed's decision to postpone the pushing of more money into the economy.

Seven Ways Washington Can Spur Private Sector Economic Growth / Economics / Economic Stimulus

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMartin Hutchinson writes: The U.S. economy is sputtering, and it's no secret why: The government is standing in the way of private sector growth.

Second-quarter gross domestic product (GDP) growth was revised down to 1.0%. That means the economy grew at an average rate of 0.7% in the first half. That's pathetic.

Catastrophic Economic Crunch Will Be Oil Mastitis: Set to Hit USA Just Like 2008 / Economics / Crude Oil

By: Andrew_Butter

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleEveryone was waiting with baited breath for the news about QE-3. But perhaps the number to watch was Q-3 nominal GDP, coming soon!!

The important message Ben Bernanke had in Jackson Hole was that the Federal Reserve cannot, on its own, create economic growth in America (or jobs), simply by making it more or less attractive for banks to lend; and thus for Americans and foreigners to borrow. Or by printing money to buy over-priced toxic assets so the ATM’s still work, or to help the Treasury improve the structure of their debt, by buying long bonds real cheap from Bill Gross…Hey Bill, that was a patriotic thing to do!

What's Going On With The U.S. Economy? / Economics / US Economy

By: Mike_Whitney

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThere's a very good post over at Mish's Global Economic Trend Analysis today. ("US in recession right here, right now") Blogger Mike Shedlock makes the case that the economy may already be in recession. It's all matter of whether if one uses the the consumer price index (CPI) or the the BEA's measure of price inflation to make their calculations. There's a fair amount of technical jargon to wade through in the article, but the charts are pretty persuasive and--if nothing else--they reinforce most people's suspicions that the economy is getting worse by the day.

U.S. Consumer Spending Pickup in July Lacks Durability / Economics / US Economy

By: Asha_Bangalore

Real consumer spending increased 0.5% in July after holding steady in May and June.  Consumer outlays of durables (+2.0%) raised the overall reading; it was largely an increase in purchases of cars (12.2 million vs. 11.6 million in June).  The 0.5% gain in service expenditures reflects a big increase in health care expenditures.  Purchases of non-durables declined 0.3% in July vs. a 0.4% increase in the prior month.

How Canada Escaped the Global Recession / Economics / Canada

By: MISES

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDavid Lee writes: Four months ago, Canadians emphatically renewed the ruling party's conservative mandate, handing Stephen Harper and the Tories the country's first majority government in over a decade. This victory was underscored by the humiliating decline of the Liberals — the country's "natural governing party" — who were displaced by a radical fringe party in their office of Official Opposition in the Canadian House of Commons. Adding insult to injury, the leader of the Liberals, former Harvard professor Michael Ignatieff, failed to win his own seat and was sent unceremoniously into political retirement.

Field Of U.S. Economic Dreams / Economics / US Economy

By: Tony_Pallotta

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article"If you build it he will come." - Field Of Dreams

"We built it and he did not show." - US economic reality

The consumer driven recession has begun. Keeping it very simple of the four GDP components (consumer, fixed investment, government and net trade) the consumer has simply rolled over. In Q1 2011 the consumer contributed 1.46% to the 0.4% total GDP. In other words if it was not for consumer growth or even if .5% of that growth was removed the economy contracted in Q1 2011.

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleChairman Bernanke stressed that the Fed “has a range of tools that can be used to provide additional stimulus” but he was silent on specifics. He mentioned that the costs and benefits of these options were discussed at the August 9 meeting. These details will be available when minutes of this meeting are published on August 30. He reiterated parts of the August 9 policy statement noting that “the Committee will continue to assess the economic outlook in light of incoming information and is prepared to employ its tools as appropriate to promote a stronger recovery in a context of price stability.”

The Fed Will Allow Business Cycle To Play Out Longer This Time! / Economics / US Economy

By: Sy_Harding

The Federal Reserve played its part well, along with the Treasury Department, the White House, and Congress, in helping prevent the financial meltdown of 2008-2009 from turning the ‘Great Recession’ of 2007-2009 into the next Great Depression.

But its solo intervention with its QE2 quantitative easing program last year to boost the again faltering economy seems to have only delayed the business cycle.

In an apparent attempt to camouflage the anticipated poor data, the United States Bureau of Economic Analysis (BEA) may employ a methodology that underestimates inflation and overestimates real Gross Domestic Product (GDP).
