Is the Philly Fed Survey the Precursor of More Bullish Economic Numbers? / Economics / Economic Recovery

By: Asha_Bangalore

The Federal Reserve Bank of Philadelphia's business survey results for November show a strong rebound.  The broadest measure of factory conditions increased to 22.5 in November from 1.0 in the October (see chart 1).  The index tracking new orders rose to 10.4 in November from -5.0 in the prior month.  Indexes measuring shipments (16.8 vs. 1.4 in October), number of employees (13.3 vs. 2.4 in October) and the employee workweek (22.3 vs. 15.9 in October) also advanced in November.

What Drives Business Profits? / Economics / Economic Theory

By: Kel_Kelly

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe economic and business community constantly attempts to forecast the effects of various economic changes and government policies on corporate profits. But both the cause and effect of increasing profits are other than what most people imagine. It will therefore be helpful to gain a concrete understanding of what profits do and do not represent.[1]

U.S. Inflation Remains Contained, In Contrast to Fed’s Preference / Economics / Inflation

By: Asha_Bangalore

The Consumer Price Index (CPI) moved up 0.2% in October, after a 0.1% gain in the prior month.  The year-to-year change is 1.2%, with the CPI trending down after a 2.7% increase in December.  During the July-October period, energy prices have lifted the overall CPI.  In October, higher gasoline prices (+4.6%) were responsible for nearly 90% of the increase in the CPI.  The CPI excluding energy held steady in October after a similar reading in the prior month.  Food prices inched up 0.1% in October, putting the year-to-year gain at 1.4%.

China Continuing Pointers to Strong Economic Growth For 2011 / Economics / China Economy

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleKeith Fitz-Gerald writes: BEIJING, People's Republic of China – While other investors are busy rounding up all sorts of economic data, tea leaves and fortune cookies in an attempt to figure out China's economic situation next year, I'm heading out the door once again to take a look at hairy crab prices.

Because of the timing of this trip, I'm a bit late in the season – but not enough that I won't be able to get a good reading on this surprisingly accurate indicator of China's economic health.

U.S. Factory Production Moves Ahead in October, Energy Costs Pushing Up Inflation / Economics / Economic Recovery

By: Asha_Bangalore

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIndustrial production held steady in October after a 0.2% drop in the prior month. Activity at the nation's mines (-0.1%) and utilities (-3.4%) declined in October and offset the gains in manufacturing output. Factory production rose 0.5% in October after holding nearly steady for two consecutive months. Nearly all major categories of manufacturing posted gains in October - autos (+5.0%), wood products (+2.5%), machinery (+1.4%), computers (+0.7%) and furniture (+0.8%). The small reversal of a decelerating trend (year-to-year change, see chart 1) is the important aspect to note from the October data.

Economies are Crumbling as Governments Play Musical Chairs with Money Printing / Economics / Quantitative Easing

By: Captain_Hook

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIf there were a truism to fit a broad cross-section of behaviors in our society today, the catchphrase ‘desperate men do desperate things’ fits well, for sure. This is because you can see it everywhere on an increasing basis as economies of all shapes and sizes disintegrate. And it spreads like a disease, reaching all quarters of our society(s), in one way or another, propagated at the core by greedy money-center bankers and their political oligarchs hopelessly attempting to prevent a collapse of the larger fiat currency economy, hegemony economics, and US Dollar ($) supremacy. Here, it’s important to understand that when the US can no longer print the money to pay its bills the present game of musical chairs will cease and centralization will quickly reverse into regionalism, returning us to more primitive but sound economies.

The Age of Debt Deleveraging Deflation, Decade of Slow Economic Growth / Economics / Deflation

By: John_Mauldin

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleBefore we get into this week’s outstanding Outside the Box, I want to comment on QE2 and the efforts by some Republican economists to urge legislators to get involved to stop it (see the front page of Monday’s Wall Street Journal). That pushes my comfort zone a little too much.

First, I am not a fan of QE2. Never have been. If it had been my call, I would have punted and told the guys in the Capital that the ball was in their court to get their fiscal house in order, because that is the main source of the problem. But Bernanke and the Fed felt they had to “do something,” to demonstrate they got the seriousness of the situation. If the only policy tool you have left is the hammer of printing money, then the world looks like a nail.

Bernanke and Greenspans Pretense of Economic Knowledge Continues / Economics / Economic Theory

By: Douglas_French

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleTwo years after the Wall Street '08 come-apart, with the economy still lingering in a funk, the Federal Reserve announced, a day after the elections, what the Associated Press called "a bold effort to invigorate the economy": the purchase of $600 billion of government bonds from now through the middle of next year, at a pace of $75 billion a month. This $600 billion is on top of the $250–$300 billion the Fed will be buying to reinvest proceeds from its mortgage portfolio.

The Great “Depression” / Economics / Economic Depression

By: Howard_Katz

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleToday I would like to continue my discussion of the (so-called) Great Depression as this is the giant lie which is behind most of the other economic lies which have deceived so many people and cost them so much money.

What is a depression?  It is a period in a country’s economic history where the large majority of the people become poorer.  It is alleged that such a period occurred in the early 1930s.  I have pointed out previously that Economic Statistics of the United States, Colonial Times to 1970, reports that during this period Americans shifted from margarine to butter.  They increased their per capita meat consumption (from 129 lb to 144 lb.).  And they gave (substantially) more to charity.  Further, real wages rose during this period, and the savings of the average American increased in value (buying power) by 30%.  This does not sound like a getting poorer to me.

Bank of England Inflation Propaganda Suggests Invisible Depression, Bankrupting Ireland Seeks Bailout / Economics / Inflation

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe Bank of England released its latest quarterly inflation report that shows that after a near year of temporary CPI Inflation mantra at above 3%, Mervyn King, the Bank Governor now expects CPI to spike to 3.5% during 2011 before falling back to below its 2% target and therefore implying that the real threat that the press and population should concern themselves with is DEFLATION.

Global Monetary Stalemate, Quantitative Easing Won't Work / Economics / Quantitative Easing

By: Bob_Chapman

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMr. Bernanke is trying to avoid the Japanese experience of the past 20 years. Underlying deflation is being offset again, as it has been for the past eight years, by creating more money and credit. The only one lose to our prediction of mid-May of $5 trillion over two years is Keynesian economist Paul Krugman. He said the Fed would need $6 trillion. The Republicans seized the House and all that has really been accomplished is gridlock, the end of stimulus and a cut of perhaps $100 billion in debt.
