The Upside-Down World of Modern Monetary Theory / Economics / Economic Theory

By: Robert_Murphy

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleModern Monetary Theory (MMT) is a hip economic/financial paradigm apparently sweeping a world unsatisfied with mainstream economics. Over the past year, I have been hearing a growing number of people refer to MMT: either fans who think it blows up my Austrian views, or foes who think it deserves a full-scale critique.

What's the Real U.S. Unemployment Rate? / Economics / Unemployment

By: Mike_Shedlock

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleEvery month the government posts the unemployment rate yet few know where the unemployment rate comes from, how it is determined, and the relationship between the unemployment rate and the monthly reported jobs total.

For a quick recap, the unemployment rate comes from a "Household Survey" while the reported headline jobs total comes from the "Establishment Survey". The former is a monthly phone survey, the latter is a sample of actual business employment.

The Collapse of the American Standard of Living, Inflationary Depression / Economics / Great Depression II

By: Bob_Chapman

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAs the economy stumbles the American standard of living recedes. 44 million people are using food stamps and in one year that figure will be 60 million. Washington and Wall Street say, what me worry? Of course not they are the masters of the universe. We are 24 months into an inflationary depression and it still goes undiscovered. Who cares that the issuance of food stamps is up 80%, as long as the bonuses on Wall Street and in banking continue to flow and bureaucrats get higher and higher salaries and benefits? The high cost of health insurance, no longer affordable to most have increased and Medicaid users are up 17%, as the program costs increased 36%.

U.S. Economy Endgame, Muddle Through or Debt Crisis? / Economics / US Economy

By: John_Mauldin

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThis week I finish the two-part letter on the Endgame and give you my thoughts on the economy and how it all plays out over the next five years. This is the second part of a speech I gave last week at the Strategic Investment Conference in La Jolla. It is a rather bold forecast, and fraught with peril and likely errors, but that is my job here. Damn the torpedoes, etc. I must offer one large caveat! If the facts change so will my forecast, but this is the view into my very cloudy crystal ball as I see it today. As always, remember that those of us in the forecasting world are often wrong but seldom in doubt. Read accordingly.

The Great Myth of the Inflation Cure / Economics / Inflation

By: Douglas_French

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleParents probably dream of sending their kid to the University of Chicago. Next to the Ivy League or Stanford, the Chicago school is near the top of the heap. Only 27 percent of applicants are admitted. To be among the roughly 15,000 means prestige and an education to build a lifetime on. The cost for tuition and fees: $39,381. Room and board is another $12,000 or so. Add books and other stuff, and the total Chicago-school experience costs $54,290 a year.

Weak U.S. Credit Growth Early Sign of a Double-Dip Recession? / Economics / Double Dip Recession

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleShah Gilani writes: In spite of five straight quarters of loosening lending standards and strong U.S. credit growth data, actual loan growth in the U.S. economy is dangerously anemic.

What isn't apparent to investors is that the reason first-quarter gross-domestic-product (GDP) growth fell to 1.8% from the fourth quarter's more robust 3.1% rate is that loans and leases - which accounted for as much as 51.2% of U.S. GDP as recently as 2008 - fell to 45% of GDP in March.

U.S. Economy Crippled / Economics / US Economy

By: Tony_Pallotta

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleSomething happened in April that crippled the US economy. First it was the reports from four regional Fed manufacturing surveys showing a sharp slowdown in growth. Then weekly jobless claims began printing four handles each week with today's 474,000 on top of last week's 429,000. The real kicker was Wednesday's ISM Services that registered a very sharp drop off and now sits precariously close to contraction.

U.S. Economic Data to Ponder About Before the April Employment Report / Economics / US Economy

By: Asha_Bangalore

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe April employment report is scheduled for publication Friday, May 6.  An increase of 190,000 payroll jobs and a steady reading for the unemployment rate (8.8%) is our forecast.  The consensus forecast is an increase of 200,000 jobs and an unchanged jobless rate.  Nonfarm payrolls increased 216,000 in March, with the private sector accounting for a gain of 230,000 jobs.  Private sector hiring has risen at an impressive clip in the February-March period (average of 235,000 jobs).  Against this backdrop, the jobless claims numbers for the week ended April 30 were unexpected.  Initial jobless claims rose 43,000 to 474,000 and the prior week's estimate was raised to 431,000 from 429,000.

China's Economy Continues to Ascend But Watch Out for Speed Bumps, Investment Plays / Economics / China Economy

By: Money_Morning

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleJason Simpkins writes: Everyone knows that China's economy is hot. The only question is whether it may be a little too hot.

China posted yet another quarter of stellar economic growth in the first quarter of 2011, with its gross domestic product (GDP) growing 9.7%. However, analysts are worried about some of the side effects that have accompanied that growth- namely soaring inflation and the emergence of speculative bubbles.

Consumer Credit Could Launch Inflationary Spiral / Economics / Inflation

By: Dr_Jeff_Lewis

Recent comments from Walmart chief executive Mike Duke have investors on high alert.  This time, though, the news spreads well beyond Walmart.

At a company event in New York, Duke reminded the crowd that retail is softening, “we’re seeing core consumers under a lot of pressure,” and later added that it was rising fuel costs, just another component of monetary inflation, that was driving the sales loss.  Of particular interest to inflation watchers should be his comments that were mostly ignored.

ISM Non-Manufacturing Survey Shows Slowing U.S. Economy / Economics / US Economy

By: Asha_Bangalore

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe ISM non-manufacturing survey results point to slowing conditions in the service sector of the economy in April.  The composite index declined to 52.8 in April from 57.3 in March.  This is the second monthly decline and the lowest since July 2010 (see Chart 1).  The composite index is made up of four equally weighted components.  Of the four components, supplier deliveries advanced in April (53.0 vs. 51.5), while indexes tracking new orders (52.7 vs. 64.1 in March), business activity (53.7 vs. 59.7 in March) and employment (51.9 vs. 53.7) declined.

U.S. Economy Faces Domestic Economic Headwinds / Economics / US Economy

By: Tony_Pallotta

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIf you watched the move Inside Job then you realized as it ended that we were in fact living the sequel. The movie is far from over. The problems are far from being addressed. The solutions may be close but the leadership needed is no where near.

Week after week I may sound like a broken record. Like someone who has missed the bull run and trying to defend lost opportunity. At some point this market will turn. Those who said they will get out at or near the top will again be proven wrong. Their paper profits will turn into paper losses and they will argue they "cannot afford to sell." What has frustrated the bears will one day frustrate the bulls.
