Main Street America's Great Depression Continues / Economics / Great Depression II

By: Stephen_Lendman

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleFriday's jobs report threw more cold water on so-called recovery. Since 2008, Main Street America's been in Depression.

Conditions have worsened, not improved, because of force-fed austerity, not badly needed stimulus to create jobs, reemploy people, and revive real economic growth, not the illusory kind since the National Bureau of Economic Research (NBER) officially declared June 2009 the end of recession.

Staring Down China's Inflation Dragon / Economics / Inflation

By: EconMatters

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleChina’s inflation jumped to its highest in three years with consumer price index (CPI) surging 6.4% year-over-year in June (See Chart Below). The spike has been fueled by escalating food prices despite that the central bank’s effort to tame inflation by pushing up the RRR (Reserve Requirement Ratio) for commercial banks six times this year, while raising interest rates five times since September, most recently on July 6.

Will China Economy Boom Turn into Doom? / Economics / China Economy

By: Jenson

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAs china chugs along non stop, it may just be that time of the year where we wait and introspect on the great juggernaut. Does the data point to any chinks in the armor? Do we see the economy crash landing with all the hikes priced in? Some of these questions will be answered as we bring some charts on the Chinese economy. Some charts have June 2011 as a data point while others only map till May 2011. As the data is released, we will update all charts to June 2011.

Has the 120-year Inflation Deflation Cycle Bottomed Early? / Economics / US Economy

By: Clif_Droke

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn light of the impressive equities market rally from 2009 through 2011, some are wondering if perhaps the economic long wave has bottomed early. I recently received an email asking a question that is relevant to our discussion. He writes, "Suppose the big 120-year cycle hit a few years early, which for a cycle this long would certainly be possible. Perhaps the March 2009 low was the deflationary 120-year cycle low point, and the bull market just carries on for several more years. Is this possible?"

Abysmal June Employment Figures Warn of Great Depression Ahead / Economics / Great Depression II

By: Robert_McHugh_PhD

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe June Jobs numbers were horrendous, just like May's were, telling us the QE2 strategy of the Fed has failed, and the Central Planners' policy to keep taxes high, and not significantly cut them or rebate them has failed. There is so much focus on making sure the rich get properly taxed that true economic stimulus is paralyzed. QE was false economic stimulus. Trillions of new dollars were printed, however there was no effective delivery system in place to move that money to households, where the real economy begins. Wall Street got the cash, bid up the price of commodities with that cash, and inflation rose. That was about it.

What Happened to the Jobs? So How's That Stimulus Thing Working Out? / Economics / Employment

By: John_Mauldin

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe US jobs report came out this morning, and it was simply dismal. This week we look at not only the jobs report but also "what-if" proffers for the US and global economies. There's a lot to cover, so let's jump in.

First, there were only 18,000 jobs created in June, the lowest since September 2010. While private employment rose by 57,000, government workers dropped by 39,000, continuing a trend as governments at all levels work to cut their budgets. Long-time readers know I think it is important to look at the direction of the revisions, and we got no help. May was revised down by 29,000 jobs and April a further down 15,000.

U.S. Jobs Report Rains On Soft Spot Hopes! / Economics / US Economy

By: Sy_Harding

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe Labor Department’s employment report on Friday pretty much took the hope out of Washington and Wall Street’s expectations that the economic slowdown in the first half of the year was just a soft spot that will quickly be replaced by strong growth in the current quarter and second half.

The economy slowed to only 1.8% growth in the 1st quarter and economic reports have been even more dismal since, to say nothing of the Fed’s QE2 stimulus program having expired at the end of June.

U.S. Payroll Stunner, Full "Pathetic" Jobs Report Analysis / Economics / Employment

By: Mike_Shedlock

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThoughts on the Jobs Report

Last month I commented things are awful at first glance and simply bad beneath the surface. This month things took a huge turn for the worse.

Three months ago I commented "It is very questionable if this pace of jobs keeps up." Clearly it didn't, for the second straight disastrous month. Certainly this cannot all be blamed on the Tsunami in Japan. The entire global economy is slowing rapidly as I have commented numerous times.

Zombie America, How it Happened / Economics / Quantitative Easing

By: Bill_Bonner

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAmericans had something to celebrate this Independence Day. QE2 – the Feds’ $600 billion money-printing program – ended on Friday. And guess what? The world didn’t end with it.

Instead, the stock market gave a loud “yahoo!” The Dow rose 168 points. If QE2 is going to be the death of the US economy, the stock market doesn’t see it.

Mixed Signals About U.S. Employment Conditions / Economics / Employment

By: Asha_Bangalore

The non-manufacturing ISM survey indicates a slowing of activity, the composite index declined to 53.3 from 54.6 in May. Readings above 50.0 denote an expansion of activity while those below 50.0 indicate a contraction of activity. The index measuring new orders (53.6 vs. 56.8 in May) fell, while the index tracking employment held nearly steady (54.1 vs. 54.0 in May, see Chart 2). The employment index of the manufacturing survey shows an increase (59.9 vs. 58.2 in May)

U.S. June Employment Report Preview / Economics / Employment

By: Asha_Bangalore

The civilian unemployment rate of 9.1% and tepid growth in payroll employment (see Chart 1) after two years of economic growth remain a key concern. Chart 1 is an indexed chart where the level of employment in June 2009 (the end of the recession) is set equal to 100. Private sector payroll employment has risen past the level seen when the recovery commenced (100.91 in May 2011). The key contributions are from private sector services and factory employment. Government employment (excluding the spike related to temporary hiring for Census 2010) stands close to levels seen in 2007.

Post Nuclear Japan: Atomic Debt / Economics / Japan Economy

By: Andrew_McKillop

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleElectricity cuts and rationing in Japan as it very carefully thinks about the dangers of getting all 49 of its remaining nuclear reactors back up to full charge, and tests all the way before doing it, can be used by nuclear apologists as a "We told you so !" proof that we need nuclear power. But in fact Japan faces things a lot more difficult and challenging, even, than taking a leaf out of Germany and Switzerland's books and starting a total nuclear exit strategy.

Turkey Economy Now Growing Faster than China / Economics / Emerging Markets

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhile all the focus is usually on the big emerging (or emerged) markets such as those who are members of BRIC, there are quite a few other interesting stories out there such as Chile, Indonesia, and Turkey.  [July 6, 2010: Turkey - Where East Meets West, and Prospects are Improving]  While there are relatively limited choices to invest in these countries, they are certainly part of a secondary group of locales that are helping to boost the fortunes of U.S. multinationals.

Small Business and the Jobless Economic Recovery / Economics / Economic Recovery

By: Fred_Buzzeo

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIf we listen to most economists, we are told that the recession is over and we are in a period of recovery. In fact, the National Bureau of Economic Research (NBER), the official voice on this matter, tells us that the recovery began in June 2009.

Fortunately, most Americans focused on making a living see right through this illusion. For example, a recent New York Times/CBS poll indicates that Americans are becoming increasingly disillusioned with the performance of the US economy. An astonishing 70 percent of respondents said that the country is moving in the wrong direction.
