10 Signs of Speculative Mania in China / Economics / China Economy

By: Mike_Shedlock

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleInquiring minds are reading a GMO white paper on China’s Red Flags

In the aftermath of the credit crunch, the outlook for most developed economies appears pretty bleak. Households need to deleverage. Western governments will have to tighten their purse strings. Faced with such grim prospects at home, many investors are turning their attention toward China. It’s easy to see why they are excited. China combines size – 1.3 billion inhabitants – with tremendous growth prospects. Current income per capita is roughly one-tenth of U.S. levels. The People’s Republic also has a great track record.

U.S. Economic Stimulus Works, Economy Recovers Under Obama / Economics / Economic Recovery

By: Daniel_Bruno

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleEconomists at Deutsche Bank are calling for a big surge in employment numbers as retail sales recover in the United States. The chart below, from www.fxboss.info  shows the relationship between retail sales and non-farm payrolls.  In America’s consumer driven economy, retail sales lead the way out of business recession and consequent double-digit unemployment.   “Retail sales have turned up as recession fatigue has worn off sharply,” said Joseph LaVorgna, chief economist at Deutsche Bank in New York. “There should soon be a pretty big pickup in job growth. If history repeats, we’ll be blindsided by job gains.”

It's Not the Debt, It's the Government Spending / Economics / Government Spending

By: Paul_L_Kasriel

Last Friday afternoon I listened to a senator get all worked up about the avalanche of federal debt that is about to roll over America. He is correct that there is an avalanche of debt on the way. But his concerns are misplaced. More precisely, his concerns were misplaced. To reiterate a popular rant of mine, it is not the deficit or debt that is the real economic cost of government, but rather it is the spending of the government. The government always gets its funds by taxing, by borrowing and/or by printing (if the central bank is willing). All three means of government funding are pernicious with respect to economic performance. So, it is not the government debt that we should be concerned with, but rather the government spending.

Greenspan Signals warnings for Bubble-maniacs, the Break-out of Inflation Has Already Begun / Economics / Inflation

By: Gary_Dorsch

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis Article“I guess, I should warn you. If I turn out to be particularly clear, you’ve probably mis-understood what I’ve said,” former Federal Reserve chief Alan Greenspan was fond of saying, when he controlled the Fed’s money spigots. For many Fed watchers, it was a great relief when “Easy” Al finally retired from the Fed, since there is nothing more vexing - than correctly interpreting Green-speak.

Bernanke Does not Believe in U.S. Phony GDP Economic Growth Data / Economics / Market Manipulation

By: Douglas_French

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe revised news from Washington is that the economy grew at a 5.6% rate in the 4th quarter of 2009. The folks who grind the numbers at the Commerce Department credit huge inventory adjustments, robust business investments and recovering consumer spending for the fastest pace of economic growth in six years.

Obama's Road to Economic Ruin / Economics / Economic Theory

By: Gerard_Jackson

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhen Obama ran for the presidency I warned that if elected the American people won't know what hit them. Obama supporters immediately responded with an avalanche of abuse. Last June Obama told a wildly applauding congregation of Hollywood celebrities that "You ain't seen nothing' yet!" I observed at the time that "he was speaking the truth. Americans really have seen nothing yet". Even now millions of Americans still cannot grasp the enormity of his fiscal depredations. Nevertheless, it does appear that the majority of Americans are beginning to catch on to this dedicated leftwinger's -- to put it mildly -- intellectual shortcomings.

America and China, the Next Major War / Economics / Global Economy

By: Clif_Droke

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn the current phase of relative peace and stability we now enjoy, many are questioning when the next major war may occur and speculation is rampant as to major participants involved. Our concern here is strictly of a financial nature, however, and a discussion of the geopolitical and military variables involved in the escalation of war is beyond the scope of this commentary. But what we can divine from financial history is that “hot” wars in a military sense often emerge from trade wars. As we shall see, the elements for what could prove to be a trade war of epic proportions are already in place and the key figures are easily identifiable.

"To trace something unknown back to something known is alleviating, soothing, gratifying and gives moreover a feeling of power. Danger, disquiet, anxiety attend the unknown - the first instinct is to eliminate these distressing states. First principle: any explanation is better than none... The cause-creating drive is thus conditioned and excited by the feeling of fear..." Friedrich Nietzsche

By: Dian_L_Chu

Healthcare’s Double-Dip Recession / Economics / Government Spending

By: Andy_Sutton

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOne of the most interesting terms to come out of the past two years is the ‘double dip recession’. This is Newspeak for depression as far as I am concerned, but it fits with the new nomenclature we have used in an attempt to paint a crisis as not really being one. After all, what fun is it to admit that we’re in a morass that we have no hope of getting out of, or even a cogent, sensible plan for exiting? It is much easier to conjure up new terms in an attempt to move the boundaries into more palatable territory. This week, in the wake of the biggest nation-killing bill to pass out of the halls of Congress to date, I’m going to tell you exactly why we are now guaranteed a second dip (to use the nomenclature du jour), and how this is going to hit small businesses, which are the backbone of the real economy.

U.S. Debt Reaches Tipping Point / Economics / US Debt

By: Dr_Jeff_Lewis

Even the most statist economists can understand that a country’s debt has reached its saturation point once the change in Gross Domestic Product is less than the change in the federal debt.  However, now the metrics of the American economy look even worse than the picture painted above. For each new dollar in federal debt, with productivity as measured by an increase or decrease in the GDP, 45 cents of wealth is destroyed.

The Fable of the Krugman / Economics / Economic Theory

By: William_Anderson

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhile Paul Krugman likes to present himself as being a Keynesian, in reality, his intellectual roots run back a few centuries to the mercantilists. If you wish to see the Krugman of 300 years ago, read Bernard Mandeville's The Fable of the Bees, first published in 1705, to see all of the same economic (and logical) fallacies that haunt Keynesianism and Krugman's columns.

The Paradox of Keynesianism, Paul Krugman and the Consumption Myth / Economics / Elliott Wave Theory

By: MISES

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleJonathan Finegold Catalán writes: In "China's Water Pistol," Paul Krugman turned commentary on China into a general attack on those who remain wary of the United States' large public debt. In it, he sums up the Keynesian views on saving, consumption, and government spending. Whatever his intentions, all Krugman does is underscore his own lack of understanding of economic theory.
