Is the US Economy Recovering or Isn't It? / Economics / Economic Recovery

By: Gerard_Jackson

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe Democrats' media pals are breathless with reports of a growing recovery. Only political bigots could possibly dispute the trend. As readers know, I tend to take a very strong historical perspective. Unlike physics or chemistry economics cannot perform laboratory-like experiments. However, the discipline does have a tremendous amount of historical evidence on which to draw. We should consider these events as economic case studies.

By: Douglas_French

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe April jobs report was described as "upbeat," with the reported 290,000 positive job gain the best in four years. "It clearly shows that this economic recovery can no longer be seen as a jobless one," said Bart van Ark, chief economist of research firm The Conference Board.

U.S. Anemic GDP Growth Rate Not Good Enough / Economics / US Economy

By: Hans_Wagner

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn normal times, a 3.2 percent GDP growth rate for the United States is good. In the 1980’s the U.S. suffered another severe recession. During that recovery, GDP grew at a 7 to a 9 percent rate for more than one year. A 3.2 percent GDP annual growth rate barely creates enough jobs to keep up with the expanding population. It does nothing for all those who lost their jobs and are looking for work. The U.S. unemployment rate is 9.7 percent and the underemployment rate, a more accurate measure of the true unemployment situation is running at the 16.5% level.

As I write, the notion of a unified Europe is literally going up in smoke. Greece has yet to confirm a bailout (four months into this ridiculous comedy), Spain and Portugal have both been slapped with credit downgrades. These problems are hardly unique as the below chart reveals:

Greece Debt Default Would be Catastrophic For German Banks / Economics / Global Debt Crisis

By: Global_Research

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleEdward Harrison writes: Apparently, Germany is now planning to make loans for Greece not just for 2010, but for 2011 and 2012 as well. This is a sea change in German thinking and is having a positive effect on all markets, with spreads on Greek debt and Greek sovereign CDS both coming in. I believe this indicates Angela Merkel understands the gravity of the situation and the impact a Greek default would have on Germany.

Gold Heats Up As Athens Burns / Economics / Global Debt Crisis

By: John_Browne

In the decades that preceded Greece's adoption of the euro in 2001 the country papered over its chronic inefficiency and lack of competitiveness with its northern neighbors through regular devaluations of its currency, the drachma. But as a prerequisite to join the Euro Zone, the dominant powers of the Continent, most notably Germany, required financial housecleaning and promises of fiscal discipline. When these goals were apparently met, the Greeks came aboard.

The Unfolding Debt Danger: Greece Today…America Tomorrow? / Economics / US Debt

By: Paul_Mladjenovic

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleI have been analyzing economics and financial markets for over a quarter century and my analysis always stopped at “financial”. In other words, I do not follow trough usually past the financial theme. After all, as a certified financial planner (CFP), you usually think in terms of dollars and cents, interest rates and all sorts of financially-oriented concepts. I have always been concerned about the financial and economic impact of many different kinds of policies and events but in recent years I started thinking “outside of my own box.”

Is China’s Economic Recovery a Fraud? / Economics / China Economy

By: James_Quinn

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe China growth miracle has resumed its vertical trajectory. We know this because the Chinese government says it's so. And, of course, governments never massage economic numbers for public consumption, right?
