BLS Makes Sure there is No U.S. Food Inflation / Economics / Inflation

By: Fred_Sheehan

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article"Moreover, inflation has been declining and is currently quite low, with measures of underlying inflation running close to 1 percent....In this environment, the Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) judged that additional monetary policy accommodation was needed to support the economic recovery and help ensure that inflation, over time, is at desired levels." -Federal Reserve Chairman Ben S.

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

Hyperinflation is Most Likely to Strike Amidst Real Deflation / Economics / HyperInflation

SO the FEDERAL RESERVE's second-round of quantitative easing, announced on November 3rd, was a shoo-in – a fait accompli – already decided when the policy team first sat down the previous day.

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.

New Estimate Indicates Real U.S. GDP Grew Faster in Q3 2010 / Economics / US Economy

By: Asha_Bangalore

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleReal GDP of the U.S. economy grew at an annual rate of 2.5% in the third quarter, which is higher than the advance estimate of a 2.0% increase.  Upward revisions of consumer spending, equipment and software spending, exports, government spending, and smaller decline in residential investment expenditures more than offset the decline in structural investment expenditures, previously reported to have added to GDP, to result in a higher rate of growth.

Fed’s Bearish Outlook Justifies QE2 / Economics / Quantitative Easing

By: Asha_Bangalore

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe minutes of the November 2-3 FOMC meeting include forecasts about real GDP, inflation, and employment from members of the FOMC. The main conclusion from the new forecast is that the Fed is less sanguine about the pace of economic activity in the final three months of 2010 and 2011 compared with the previous forecast (see table below).  The downward revision of growth and an upward revision of employment entirely justifies the announcement of the second round of quantitative easing of $600 billion.

Bernanke vs. Keynes / Economics / Economic Theory

By: Mike_Whitney

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleInvestment drives the economy. It creates jobs, builds factories, develops technology, and stimulates growth. When investment falls, spending slows, unemployment rises, and the economy languishes in persistent stagnation.
