11 Statistics Show Just How Far the Economy Has Deteriorated / Economics / Great Depression II

By: LewRockwell

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleEconomic Collapse writes: Are you better off today than you were four years ago? Unfortunately, most Americans are not. Both political parties have controlled the White House during the last four years – Barack Obama has been in office for nearly two years and before him it was George W. Bush – and yet no matter what politicians we send to Washington D.C. things just seem to keep getting worse. We buy more than we produce, we spend more than we bring in, we have 18 times as many "problem banks" as we did 4 years ago, the number of Americans on food stamps continues to set a new all-time record every month and we are living in the greatest debt bubble in the history of the world. But at least the majority of Americans are still prosperous enough to enjoy a happy Thanksgiving inside a warm, comfortable home. Unfortunately, if things keep going the way they are going, we are going to experience a national economic nightmare that nobody will be thankful for.

By: Frank_Shostak

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn his interview with the CNBC on November 9, 2010, a highly regarded Wall Street economist, Nouriel Roubini, the cofounder and chairman of Roubini Global Economics, said that a gold standard is unlikely to stabilize the financial system.

The Best Way To Play U.S. Sleeper Inflation / Economics / Inflation

By: Sean_Brodrick

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleLike gasoline seeping across a floor, inflation is slowly spreading across the globe, waiting to ignite. When it finally combusts, the move higher in prices could be explosive. Yet many U.S. citizens are going to be caught totally unaware because prices — for now — are generally flat and even falling.

This has opportunity written all over it. I’ll get to that in a bit. First, some facts on how the signs of deflation are around us:

Ireland's Brutal Four-Year Economic Austerity Plan / Economics / Economic Austerity

By: Submissions

Rory Fitzgerald writes: The EU Commission has called the Irish government's Four Year Plan a "cornerstone" of the bailout package currently under discussion between Ireland, Europe and the IMF.

Market insiders have called the plan "staggeringly austere" and the proof of their scepticism lies in the fact that bond yields widened further still after the plan was announced. David Begg, head of the Irish Congress of Trade Unions said: "It appears that the day of reckoning has arrived. The Barbarians are at the gates."

Consumer Spending on Track for Sustained Growth in Q4 / Economics / Economic Recovery

By: Asha_Bangalore

Real consumer spending rose 0.3% in October, following a 0.2% gain in the prior month.  A large part of the increase was from purchases of cars and other recreational vehicles.  Outlays on services held steady during October after a 0.1% increase in September.  The October consumer spending data combined with conservative projections in the last two months of year points to moderate growth during the fourth quarter.

Ellen Brown Response to Gary North: QE2 IS the Populist Solution / Economics / Quantitative Easing

By: Ellen_Brown

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleGary North, who purports to be an expert on the errors in my book “Web of Debt,” has evidently not actually read it.  In an article posted on the Market Oracle on November 23, he says that in calling QE2 (the Fed’s new quantitative easing program) a “bold precedent,” I have switched sides.  He apparently missed the entire chapter I wrote on this subject, first published in “Web of Debt” in 2007, saying exactly what I am saying now.

Global Debt Crisis Implosions, Use Gold and Silver to Protect from The Big One, Coming Soon / Economics / Global Debt Crisis

By: DeepCaster_LLC

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis Article“Attempts to bail out the Irish banking sector via multinational loans will only increase debt burdens in Europe and lead to a nightmarish scenario there, says New York University economist Nouriel Roubini.

There is too much private debt in Ireland, and aid from the International Monetary Fund, the European Union or whoever merely amounts to pushing the payday down the road and ultimately increasing the total amount owed in the end.

U.S. Initial Jobless Claims Decline / Economics / Unemployment

By: Asha_Bangalore

Initial jobless claims fell 34,000 to 407,000 during the week ended November 20.  This is the lowest count of initial jobless claims since July 19, 2008.  The four-week moving average, at 436,000, is noticeably below 450,000, which has been the level around which initial jobless claims have been holding since April.  Continuing claims, which lag initial claims by one week, fell 142,000 to 4.182 million.  Unemployment insurance claims under special programs also dropped 262,000 for the week ended November 6 (see Chart 7).  The decline in initial jobless claims suggests that labor market conditions are improving

QE2 and The Great Economic Misdiagnosis, Insolvency Not Illiquidity / Economics / Quantitative Easing

By: Jim_Willie_CB

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe backdrop has turned dire on several front simultaneously. The great millstone around the USEconomy's neck continues to drag it down. CoreLogic reported 2.1 million units have created a swamp in Shadow inventory of the housing market. That equates to 23 months inventory, whereas normal is 7 months. They tallied the growing tumor of bank owned properties as a result of home foreclosures, also called the REOs (real estate owned). Look for no housing market recovery for at least another two years. Starting in summer 2007, the Jackass forecast each year has been for another two years of housing market declines, all correct. Ireland might be squarely in the news, but the big enchalada is Spain. The Irish banks have presented a grand headache for the European banks, with a $150 billion exposure. Ironically, Ireland has done more to reduce its budget spending effectively than any EU member nation, yet is left to twist in the soft rain. They cut their government budget by 20%.

Raising Taxes Is Not Reducing Government Spending / Economics / Economic Theory

By: George_Reisman

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleSunday's New York Times carries an article titled "The Blur Between Spending and Taxes." The author is Harvard Professor N. Gregory Mankiw.[1] The essential theme of the article is that the government is spending when it decides to forgo tax revenue that it otherwise could have collected. Indeed, tax revenues forgone in the enactment of tax deductions, such as for interest payments on home mortgages or charitable contributions, and tax credits, such as for first-time homebuyers or adoptions, are now commonly described as "Tax Expenditures." The thought is that the government is spending money in deciding not to take it in taxes and to allow the taxpayers to keep it.

Mounting Unemployment in America: Poverty and "Social Explosion" / Economics / Great Depression II

By: Bob_Chapman

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe social net has become a bit more frayed. Soon extended unemployment benefits will cease and 2 million Americans will have to dip into their savings, if they have any. This is an outgrowth of the effects of free trade, globalization, offshoring and outsourcing. We have lost 8.5 million jobs over the last ten years to this destructive process. We have seen more than 42,000 manufacturing plants leave the country as well.
