U.S. Quantitative Easing is Fracturing the Global Economy / Economics / Global Economy

By: Michael_Hudson

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMoreover, it may well be asked whether we can take it for granted that a return to freedom of exchanges is really a question of time. Even if the reply were in the affirmative, it is safe to assume that after a period of freedom the regime of control will be restored as a result of the next economic crisis. (Paul Einzig, Exchange Control (1934)).[1]

Slow U.S. GDP Growth Sets Stage for Fed’s Next Round of Quantitative Easing / Economics / Quantitative Easing

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDon Miller writes : The U.S. economy continued to struggle to grow in the third quarter, most likely giving government officials enough cover to pump more liquidity into the financial system to stimulate hiring.

Gross domestic product (GDP), the value of all goods and services produced, increased by 2% in the third quarter, the Commerce Department reported Friday. Economists polled by Dow Jones Newswires were expecting GDP to rise by 2.1% in the July to September period, The Wall Street Journal reported.

Bernanke Torching the U.S. Economic Recovery with Quantitative Easing / Economics / Quantitative Easing

By: Paul_Lamont

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleInvestors Burned by Bernanke’s QE Demonstrations
While Chairman Bernanke has his theory on quantitative easing, we suspect QE will turn out more like this Turkish firefighter demonstrating fire safety (no one was hurt in this video). Instead of limiting losses to those that took risks, Bernanke’s first round of bailouts in 2008-9 spread the fire to all American taxpayers. Ben’s next demonstration of quantitative easing is likely to create uncertainty and chaos by torching the credit markets.

Deflation Is Not the Enemy, Bad Economics Is / Economics / Economic Theory

By: Gerard_Jackson

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAccording to Alan Blinder "the present danger is not inflation but deflation". His pal Bernanke has driven the Fed's funds rate down to zero while giving the US economy an unprecedented increase in its monetary base. Not satisfied with that he is now apparently preparing an astonishing $2 trillion monetary expansion -- and Blinder worries about deflation!

U.S. GDP Report Heralds Still Higher US Unemployment / Economics / US Economy

By: Barry_Grey

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe Commerce Department on Friday estimated that the US economy grew at an anemic annual rate of 2.0 percent in the third quarter, a pace that all but ensures a further rise in unemployment.

The government claims that the recession ended in June of 2009, but the quarterly increases in the nation’s gross domestic product (GDP) this year have been far below those recorded following previous major recessions. US GDP rose 3.7 percent in the first quarter of 2010 and then slowed to 1.7 percent in the second.

China's Creative Accounting, Using Debt as an Instrument of Economic Growth / Economics / China Economy

By: Ellen_Brown

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleChina may be as heavily in debt as we are.  It just has a different way of keeping its books -- which makes a high-profile political ad sponsored by Citizens Against Government Waste, a fiscally conservative think tank, particularly ironic.  Set in a lecture hall in China in 2030, the controversial ad shows a Chinese professor lecturing on the fall of empires: Greece, Rome, Great Britain, the United States . . . .

Signs Hyperinflation Is Arriving / Economics / HyperInflation

By: Gonzalo_Lira

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleBack in late August, I argued that hyperinflation would be triggered by a run on Treasury bonds. I described how such a run might happen, and argued that if Treasuries were no longer considered safe, then commodities would become the store of value. 

Such a run on commodities, I further argued, would inevitably lead to price increases and a rise in the Consumer Price Index, which would initially be interpreted by the Federal Reserve, the Federal government, as well as the commentariat, as a good thing: A sign that “the economy is recovering”, a sign that “normalcy” was returning.

A Complexity Manifesto, Capitalists Continue to Increase Complexity Within Their Spheres of Production / Economics / Economic Theory

By: Ashvin_Pandurangi

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article"Every limit appears as a barrier to be overcome" - Karl Marx (describing the world through a capitalist’s eyes)
There has been much debate since the global financial crisis of 2008 about what exactly happened and why. Some analysts believe that a period of deregulation in the financial sector, including the infamous repeal of Glass-Steagall (separating commercial and investment banking activities) [1], combined with reckless managerial decisions was the primary driver of a housing bubble, which led to a credit crunch and economic recession. Conservatives and libertarians tend to place the blame on government intervention in the housing and financial markets through Congressional legislation, such as the Community Reinvestment Act (putting pressure on banks to issue credit in low-income neighborhoods) [2], and the Federal Reserve's loose monetary policy (targeting low interest rates during the tech and housing bubbles) [3].

U.S. Employment is Main Focus of Fed QE Policy / Economics / Employment

By: Asha_Bangalore

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe Fed is widely expected to announce the details of the second round of QE (quantitative easing) following its 2-day meeting ending on November 3.  There are more questions than answers about the nature of QE2 at the present time.  Let's start with QE1 to put things in perspective; QE1 was in place from December 2008 to March 2010.  The Fed purchased a sum of $1.725 trillion worth of agency bonds ($175 billion), mortgage-backed securities ($1.25 trillion) and Treasury securities ($300 billion).  The outcome was a larger Fed balance sheet reaching $2.3 trillion as of March 2010 (see chart 1).

Paul Krugman Challenged to Debate on Keynesian vs Austrian Business Cycle Theory / Economics / Economic Theory

By: Robert_Murphy

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAs many readers already know, last week I launched a campaign to pressure Paul Krugman into debating me. In just the first week, this sophomoric 7-minute YouTube video has generated $35,000 in pledges. At this point, I don't see how Krugman will ever live this down until he debates me on Austrian versus Keynesian business-cycle theory.

In the present article, I'll give a little background of how I came up with the idea. Then I'll point out the broader implications of this episode, which go well beyond my jousting with Krugman.

Economies Pummeled by the Strong Arm of the Financial Ruin / Economics / Great Depression II

By: Richard_Daughty

Casey's Gold & Resource Summit reports that "Casey Research's own resident economic genius Bud Conrad" is the "nonpareil whirling dervish of data points," which is an odd descriptor, and I interpret it as meaning a guy who knows how to send you into cardiac arrest with "a mind-boggling sequence of charts and graphs covering virtually every aspect of the economy."
