Weather Distorts Initial Jobless Claims / Economics / Unemployment

By: Asha_Bangalore

Initial jobless claims fell 36,000 to 383,000 during the week ended February 5.  A large part of the nation experienced severely inclement weather during this week, which suggests that the initial jobless claims numbers of the past week did not capture the entire count.  Next week's report should give a better read on initial jobless claims.  Continuing claims, which lag initial jobless claims by one week, dropped 47,000 to 3.888 million after a decline of 74,000 the prior week.

Inflation - Advanced Economies vs. Emerging Economies / Economics / Inflation

By: Asha_Bangalore

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe Bank of England (BOE) and The European Central Bank (ECB) have chosen to stand pat after their recent policy meetings.  However, inflation readings in the UK and the Euro area are problematic, particularly in the UK.  President Trichet of the ECB, last week, presented a less concerned stance about inflation compared with his comments in prior weeks.  Inflation in the Euro area (2.2%) is slightly higher than the target rate of 2.0%.

Escaping the Great Depression and Extending the Greater Depression / Economics / Great Depression II

By: Casey_Research

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDoug Casey,  The Casey Report writes: Here at Casey Research, our view of the Great Depression of the 1930s is a little different from that of most people. In our eyes, Franklin Roosevelt wasn't a hero, he was a villain. Nearly everything he did served to extend and deepen the economic downturn.

With the exception of supporting the 21st Amendment for the repeal of Prohibition, Roosevelt's involvement in the economy was an unmitigated disaster. But in popular memory, that failure is obscured by U.S. success in WW2, over which Roosevelt presided.

U.S. 9% Unemployment Rate is a Statistical Lie / Economics / Economic Statistics

By: Submissions

Greg Hunter writes: The Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) released the latest unemployment figures last Friday.  There was a stunning drop to 9% from 9.4%.  How did that happen?  Is the economy really getting better or is the government up to its old statistical tricks.  According to the mainstream media, the economy is getting better and the so-called recovery is alive and well.

G7 Banana Republics ON the Money Printing Inflation Road to ZIMBABWE! / Economics / Inflation

By: Ty_Andros

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe global financial cataclysm is mushrooming with every stroke of the keyboard at a central bank, with the issuance of new debt to cover old debt, and with the illusion of creating money out of thin air.  It is all debt, nothing else, with no final settlement…. EVER.  You exchange the money you work for and save and buy a government bond; they print the money to pay you back and PRETEND you have been paid.  The situation is just as Von Mises outlined:

How to Beat the Looming Inflation Tsunami / Economics / Inflation

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMartin Hutchinson writes: Inflation is coming our way. Make no mistake about it.

This insidious increase in the general level of prices is currently rattling around in the world's emerging markets - causing China and Brazil to put up interest rates and India to try and suppress it with price controls. It's beginning to appear in Britain, which had a similar crash to the United States, but where the currency has been somewhat weaker.

Phony Official Inflation Statistics Produced by Dirty Rotten Scoundrels / Economics / Inflation

By: Rob_Kirby

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe purpose of this paper is to draw particular attention to the recent disparity in crude oil prices – namely the difference between two benchmarks - West Texas Intermediate [WTI] and Brent [North Sea] Crude.  Historically the price of WTI trades at a premium to lesser quality Brent North Sea Crude.  This paper lays out the case that the extreme, existing, observable price discrepancies is likely the result of engineered and arbitrary market manipulations – to be discussed below. Such arbitrary price manipulations in the oil markets impact negatively on the oil exporting economies and show favor to oil importing economies.

China, Inflation and Gold, China created paper money and paper money then created Inflation / Economics / Inflation

By: Darryl_R_Schoon

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleRalph T. Foster in his invaluable book, Fiat Paper Money, The History and Evolution of Our Currency, writes that paper money made its first appearance in Szechwan, a remote province of China early in the 11th century.

Because of a shortage of copper coins, provincial officials had begun circulating iron coins; but the difference in value and weight between the two metals caused unexpected problems.

Changing Perception of the U.S. Economy Food for Thought / Economics / Economic Recovery

By: Asha_Bangalore

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe 2-year Treasury note is trading around 0.78% today, from a low of 0.54% on January 28. The 10-year Treasury note yield has moved up to 3.67% from 3.36% in the same period (see Chart 1). The bond market essentially signals the U.S. economy is turning around and is most likely to establish sustained growth in 2011. A part of the bullish sentiment commenced after Bernanke's speech in the last week of August 2010 when the Fed signaled that a second round of support was on its way.

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThere are very few macro points in the world that needs to be understood and analysed more than the story of the dragon and its kids. Infact for a generation to come, we may be telling the story of the great dragon which breathed fire and consumed the eagle in the sky. What happens to the dragon after that is the plot where almost everyone has a different ending.

Subjective Value and Market Prices / Economics / Economic Theory

By: Robert_Murphy

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOne of the most subtle aspects of modern economic theory is the relation between subjective value and objective money prices. This is an area where the Austrians have an advantage over other schools, because they care more about their forebears than most other economists, and because Austrians were instrumental in the development of subjective-value theory.

According to the Chinese calendar it’s the Year of the Rabbit.

If Friday's U.S. Employment Data Confused You... / Economics / Economic Statistics

By: Trader_Mark

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article... this story via AP should help 'clear' it up.  There remains a lot of confusion even by economists who follow this stuff for a living.  Essentially the larger story is traditional businesses are not hiring at pace so large swathes of America are either (a) dropping out of the workforce or (b) becoming self employed.  Hence the new workers in category b respond affirmatively when the household survey calls and asks "are you working?".  Even if working means selling some of those old Beanie Babies on their new fangled Ebay store.

The Burden of Lower Economic Growth and Frequent Recessions / Economics / US Economy

By: John_Mauldin

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis Article"My best guess is that we'll have a continued recovery, but it won't feel terrific. Even though technically we'll be in recovery and the economy will be growing, unemployment will still be high for a while and that means that a lot of people will be under financial stress." -- Benjamin Bernanke, Chairman of the Federal Reserve in a Q&A at the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars
