China Hikes Interest Rates on High Inflation, Risks Hard Economic Landing in 2011 / Economics / China Economy

By: Mike_Shedlock

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleInflation is running at a reported 5.1% in China, a figure most believe is on the low side. Nonetheless, China has been loath to hike rates out of fear of more "hot money" flowing in. Something had to give, and it did. The markets forced China's hand.

China Outlook 2011 and the Next Decade, Is the Smart Money Right? / Economics / China Economy

By: Dian_L_Chu

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleChina has been ranked as the top growing country among the G20 since 2001 and is expected to retain that title for at least another five years (See Growth Chart). However, the news coming out of China for the past three months has not been good. It is looking more and more that it is not a question of if China is a bubble and going to burst, but when.

Rise of the Free Market Zombies / Economics / Economic Theory

By: Robert_Murphy

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleFor his Sunday column, Paul Krugman wrote a piece titled "When Zombies Win." Krugman claims that "free-market fundamentalists" — including Ron Paul — have been successful politically, despite being thoroughly discredited by recent events. As we'll see, it's a good thing that these ideas of shrinking government refuse to die, no matter how often Krugman attacks them.

By: Neeraj_Chaudhary

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleHere we go again. This week, Paul Krugman, the 2008 Nobel Prize winner in economics and the go-to guy for progressives who need a morale boost, launched another misguided attack on Austrian School economists. From his New York Times soapbox, he referred to the free-market Austrian "hard money" philosophy as a "zombie idea" that is inexplicably eating the brains of the voting public.

The Inflation Waves of 2011 / Economics / Inflation

By: John_Browne

One of the founding myths of the modern global financial system was that governments, especially of the developed democracies, could borrow endlessly without consequence. But, with sovereign debt crises erupting across the globe, it appears that the umbrella of perceived safety has gotten smaller, exposing some benighted countries, like Greece and Ireland, to severely rough weather.

What Is the Current State of Economic Science? / Economics / Economic Theory

By: MISES

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleErwin Rosen writes: What is the current state of economic science? In two words, "not good."

This is evident in the poor performance of the economics profession during the current financial crisis. Few economists saw it coming; once it started, its severity caught them by surprise; and now it is apparent that there is no agreement among them on how to end it.

Commodity Super Cycle Ripples into China / Economics / China Economy

By: Gary_Dorsch

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleExactly two-years ago, - the world’s commodity and stock markets were caught in the grips of a death spiral. As revelations of the extreme magnitude of the sub-prime mortgage debt crisis began to surface, banks began cutting off funding to companies and other borrowers, despite efforts by governments and central banks to unlock jammed credit markets. Global cross-border lending by banks shrank $5-trillion in the last nine months of 2008, the sharpest fall ever recorded.

How Much Faith Should We Put in Keynesian Economic Models? / Economics / Economic Theory

By: Robert_Murphy

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleJim Manzi is a private-sector expert in statistical analysis. He is my favorite commentator on the economics of climate change, because he dove into the IPCC reports and found that the proposed legislative "cures" (cap-and-trade or carbon-tax laws) are arguably worse than the disease, even according to the "consensus" numbers.

Euro-zone Debt Crisis, European Monetary Union to Muddle Through or Fall Apart? / Economics / Euro-Zone

By: Global_Research

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIngo Schmidt writes: Springtime in Athens, Dublin in the fall. Lisbon next time or Madrid? The sparks of public deficits, foreign debt, and soaring risk premiums have lit a fire of fiscal and debt crises in the European periphery that have even inflamed the corridors of Euro-power – the European Central Bank (ECB), the European Commission and the capitals of the European Union (EU) heavyweights of France and Germany. In May, when Greece accepted a €45-billion bailout package, with the usual neoliberal adjustment strings attached, only a few folks on the fringes of the political spectrum speculated about the break-up of the Euro-zone. The recent negotiations between the Irish government and the EU, the International Monetary Fund (IMF), and the governments of Britain, Denmark and Sweden, were concluded with an additional €85-billion worth of credits and guarantees being anted up. But they also have started to raise serious concerns about the future of the Euro.

Europe Kicking the Debt Crisis Can Down the Road / Economics / Global Debt Crisis

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDifferent Cans for Different Folks
More Debt is NOT the Solution to Too Much Debt
Et Tu, Belgium?

How often did we as young kids go down the street kicking a can? "Kicking the can down the road" is a universally understood metaphor that has come to mean not dealing with the problem but putting a band-aid on it, knowing we will have to deal with something maybe even worse in the future.

Index of Leading Economic Indicators Underscores Continuing Recovery / Economics / Economic Recovery

By: Asha_Bangalore

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe Conference Board's Index of Leading Economic Indicators (LEI) posted a solid 1.1% gain in November after a revised 0.4% increase in October. The LEI has risen at an annual rate of 8.7% in the three months ended November compared with a 0.4% gain during the previous three months (ending August). The accelerated increase of the LEI implies continued growth of the economy and at a stronger pace compared with the trend seen in recent months. The possibility of a double-dip discussed frequently in the summer months is almost irrelevant now.

Western Public Debt Bubble Explodes Sending Financial Shock Waves Across Europe and America / Economics / Global Debt Crisis

By: Global_Research

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleGEAB writes: The second half of 2011 will mark the point in time when all the world’s financial operators will finally understand that the West will not repay in full a significant portion of the loans advanced over the last two decades. For LEAP/E2020 it is, in effect, around October 2011, due to the plunge of a large number of US cities and states into an inextricable financial situation following the end of the federal funding of their deficits, whilst Europe will face a very significant debt refinancing requirement

U.S. Housing Market Starts Show Small Recovery / Economics / Economic Recovery

By: Asha_Bangalore

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleConstruction of new homes increased 3.9% to an annual rate of 555,000 in November, following an 11.1% drop in the previous month.  Starts of single-family units advanced 6.9% in November to an annual rate of 465,000.  The November level of single-family starts is marginally above the three-month moving average of single-family starts (see Chart 1), which suggests that stronger gains are necessary before we declare that home construction activity is out of the woods.  Multi-family starts fell 9.1% in November, marking the third consecutive monthly decline.
