Soaring Corporate Profits As US Worker Pay for Productivity Hits Record Lows / Economics / Social Issues

By: Jesse

Two sets of charts tell the story.

The problem is that when workers are pressed to the wall on pay they lose the ability to consume without taking on debt. And at some point the debt leverage mechanism for consumption breaks down.

US Ranks Fourth In Global Competitiveness / Economics / Global Economy

By: Jesse

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleI think the biggest surprise for US readers might be how high the US ranks in global competitiveness, and the countries that rank the highest. And of course there is the absence of China in the top ten. Shocking when viewed through the lens of an artificially managed-to-the-dollar currency pair.

Mutant Rat Epidemic Spreading Economic Black Plague / Economics / US Debt

By: D_Sherman_Okst

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWe are in the midst of a rat infestation of epidemic proportions -- an ‘Economic Black Death’, a plague, spread by Xenopsylla cheopis (rat-fleas).
 
These are no ordinary rats. No. Our infestation consists of 900-hundred pound, grotesque, disgustingly despicable, giant, disease-carrying, plague-creating, rat-flea ridden mutant rats.

Don't Doubt the Double Dip Recession / Economics / Double Dip Recession

By: Neeraj_Chaudhary

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleA few weeks ago Nouriel Roubini, widely regarded as one of the more pessimistic figures on Wall Street, made headlines by raising his forecasted likelihood of a "double dip recession" to a terrifying 40%. The vast majority of "mainstream" economists (although I would argue Roubini himself is part of that pack) described these predictions as far too gloomy.

Meet the New Goldilocks Economy / Economics / US Economy

By: Andy_Sutton

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleBack in the glory days of 2008, the mainstream press, political pundits, and various government officials talked about the idea of the Goldilocks economy. Not too hot, not too cold, but just right. Of course the analogy ended when the bears chased Goldilocks out of the cottage. While the same outlets aren’t trotting out the fairy tale this time around, it is clear that the US has hit phase two of the Goldilocks economy and it is my guess that most folks will like this one even less than the first.

Filtering Through the Economic Noise, America's Second Great Depression / Economics / Great Depression II

By: Mike_Stathis

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleEarly last month, the Commerce Department released the latest GDP data. For Q2 of 2010 the GDP growth came in at 2.4%, missing the consensus estimate of 2.5%.

The Commerce Department also released its latest revisions to 2007-2009 GDP data. As I had predicted, the economy shrank more than the previous estimate of 2.6% versus the 2.4% data recorded last year. That made it the largest drop in GDP since 1946.

Death of Luxury Consumer Brands Postponed Indefinitely / Economics / Economic Recovery

By: Pravda

Luxury has survived the crisis, experts say. The death of luxury brands market is postponed indefinitely, and the survivors recovered faster than the more modest brands. Over seven months, the growth in retail turnover, according to Rosstat, was up 4%, and the Russian luxury market can be expected to grow by 5-10% already this year.

More Stimulus and Unlimited Money Printing Burning the Economic Toast / Economics / Quantitative Easing

By: Richard_Daughty

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleEven though I have been drinking so that my speech is slurred after testing some crazy idea that I could drink away my utter horror at the death and dying of the US dollar and economy, history is, on the other hand, being made crystal clear that when a country is so idiotic as to ignore its own Constitutional requirement that money be only made of silver and gold (so as to prevent its over-issuance and thus prevent inflation, The Worst Of All Evils (TWOAE)), and then to compound that stupidity and perfidy by unbelievable over-production of the ridiculously-preferred fiat currency by the foul Federal Reserve mindlessly printing too, too much of it, for too, too long, distorting the economy into an ugly, cancerous, government-centric abomination, that country and its currency are soon toast, which is an unfortunate metaphor because I like toast.

Economic Stimulus? Yet Again? / Economics / Economic Stimulus

By: Robert_Murphy

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThis week the Obama administration lays out its plans to further "stimulate" the economy. In particular, the president unveiled his proposals for $50 billion more in infrastructure spending, and a $100 billion extension to a tax credit on research and development.

Unfortunately these ideas range from misguided to downright harmful. If the federal government really wants to promote economic recovery, it should cut spending and taxes in general, and basically get out of the way.

Federal Debt Crisis Solution, Time for Bernanke to Drop Money on to Main Street / Economics / Quantitative Easing

By: Ellen_Brown

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe Fed is proposing another round of “quantitative easing,” although the first round failed to reverse deflation.  It failed because the money went into the coffers of banks, which failed to lend it on.  To reverse deflation, the money needs to be funneled directly to state and local economies. The Fed may not be authorized to “monetize” state bonds, but it COULD buy bonds issued by state-owned banks.

Currency and Banking Reform in 19th-Century Britain / Economics / Fiat Currency

By: Matt_McCaffrey

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAs banks — central and otherwise — falter and fail across the globe, it is increasingly obvious that the problems of monetary policy that we face run deeper than merely finding the correct adjustment to a Taylor rule. It is trite but nevertheless true to say that great monetary reforms are necessary. The purpose of this article is not to argue for particular policies, but to examine a particularly important historical example of how (and how not) to go about monetary policy and reform.

The Ultimate Source of Profit and Loss on the Market / Economics / Economic Theory

By: MISES

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe changes in the data whose reiterated emergence prevents the economic system from turning into an evenly rotating economy and produces again and again entrepreneurial profit and loss are favorable to some members of society and unfavorable to others. Hence, people concluded, the gain of one man is the damage of another; no man profits but by the loss of others.

Real Bank Credit and Real GDP Growth, Michael Boskin’s Summer of Economic History Amnesia / Economics / Economic Theory

By: Paul_L_Kasriel

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMonetarism, In a September 2 op-ed commentary in the WSJ ("Summer of Economic Discontent"), Michael Boskin, former chairman of the President's Council of Economic Advisers under Bush 41, compares the anemic current economic recovery with vibrant ones, such as the recovery that commenced in the first quarter of 1983, when Martin Feldstein was chairman of President Reagan's Council of Economic Advisers. Mr. Boskin intimates that the reason the current economic recovery is so feeble is because of economic policies being pursued by the current presidential administration.

Real Economic GDP Growth, U.S. vs Germany / Economics / Global Economy

By: Paul_L_Kasriel

As Chart 1 shows, German real GDP growth, at an annualized rate of 9.0%, blew away U.S. growth at a paltry 1.6%. A number of factors might account for the stronger performance of the German in economy in the second quarter vs. the U.S. But one I want to concentrate on is the change in credit provided by private-sector financial institutions. These data are presented in Chart 2. I do not have oranges-to-oranges data to compare, but I do have oranges to tangerines data.
