Some Good News on Unemployment
The Effects of a Tax Increase

Last week I wrote a letter to my kids trying to explain what Greece meant to them. Reader Ken V wrote: "Great letter, John. Now you should write one for the adults who are retired and don't have the long future your kids do. If the US becomes Greece, things won't recover in time for much of the rest of my life to be more than one grim, dreary period. What is your investment advice for those with roughly a 10-year horizon, not 30-40-50 years?"

India’s Emerging Ambitions / Economics / India

By: Anthony_David

The Indian government plans to sell a stake of about 10% from the state-owned Manganese Ore (India) Ltd as part of the government’s drive to sell steel-related state assets. Manganese Ore is the nation’s largest manganese producer and meets about 65% of the domestic needs. The company, meanwhile, has plans to ramp up its ferro-manganese production capacity. On the flip side, the company’s finance director has warned that the company’s profits at the end of the current fiscal is likely to show a drop of about 22% because of the lower steel demand last year.

US Labor Market adds 163k Jobs? Is it for Real or another Sham? / Economics / Economic Recovery

By: Shaily

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleBlog writers have been overwhelmingly negative on the increasingly deteriorating unemployment situation in the US. No matter what data is released, they are discarded as unreal or so full of holes that an elephant could walk through them.

Even the current BLS report seems to have been bashed pretty badly by most blogs.

U.S. Debt–to-GDP Situation, When Will the Dominos Align / Economics / US Debt

By: Hans_Wagner

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn February 19, 2010 Wall Street Journal, Daniel Henninger included the following chart in his column. Federal spending has grown seven times the real median household income over the last 40 years. At some point, the government will be unable to pay for all the new programs, stimulus, healthcare, rapid expansion in number of government employees, etc. The market will drive up the cost of debt to levels that lead to default. Many say it cannot happen to the U.S.

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIndia has been on a relentless surge, both in the real economy and the equity markets. 100% return in 12 months is not something one would have had expected in April 2009, as Fund Managers, Hedge Funds and Private Equity funds were running for cover.

You Still Believe The Fed Can Stop Deflation? / Economics / Deflation

By: EWI

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleRecent history proves that the Fed's "control" is just an illusion. March 31, 2010

Think back to the fall of 2007. The deflationary "liquidity crunch" that over the next year-and-a-half cuts the DJIA in half, decimates commodities, real estate and world markets is only starting. Almost no one believes that the crash is coming -- to a large degree, because everyone is convinced that the U.S. Federal Reserve Bank, with Ben Bernanke at the helm, will never allow deflation to happen: It can just print money!

Solving Britain's Economic Crisis Through Micro Business Capital Investments and Credit / Economics / Economic Theory

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleBritain had bet its future on the financial sector as the means for delivering economic prosperity and lost. The financial sector over the past 3 decades had mushroomed to an enormous size on terms of over leveraged liabilities extending to more than 5 times UK GDP that has imploded in spectacular style following the start of the Credit Crisis in August 2007 which has now left the country on the brink of bankruptcy under the burden of the liabilities of the banking sector (most denominated in foreign currencies), unsustainable annual budget deficit and the growing public sector debt mountain.

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.
