Sensible People See Through Keynesian Economics, But Not Economists / Economics / Elliott Wave Theory

By: Gary_North

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleFour images provide the conceptual tools to refute Keynesian economics: the gun, the wallet, the IOU, and the printing press. Recall them every time you read a Keynesian promotion of the latest government-spending plan. Let me explain.

The FED Won't Deflate or Even Seriously Disinflate / Economics / Inflation

By: Michael_S_Rozeff

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe FED, in my opinion, is a price taker in the security markets. While its control over the interest rate in the inter-bank market for reserves (Federal Funds) may be very large in the short run, it cannot and does not control interest rates in other markets, such as Treasury bills. These rates and yields are linked to world markets that are too large for the FED to control.

Too Much Hope and Audacity, Obama’s Budget is Worse than You Thought / Economics / Government Spending

By: Q1_Publishing

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleForget the current estimates, the deficits are going to be much, much worse.

Just a few days after Senator Jim Bunning was labeled a “lunatic” for trying to enforce the recently enact Pay-As-You-Go laws, the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) releasted its analysis of the Obama Administration’s federal budget proposal.

Sovereign Debt and the Economic Crisis, When Countries are Bankrupt... / Economics / Global Debt Crisis

By: Bob_Chapman

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleSovereign debt hangs like an albatross around the necks of too many countries. There are 17 medium-size to large countries that are close to, or are bankrupt. Many are being kept solvent by using two sets of books and by marking to model. As you know we expect these bankruptcies to take place by the end of 2011. That will be accomplished at meetings such as we saw in the 1970s at the Smithsonian, the Plaza Accord of 1985 and the Louvre Accord of 1987. There will be a realignment of currencies.

The Bubble That Broke the World / Economics / Economic Theory

By: MISES

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleJonathan M. Finegold Catalan writes: With the United States and much of Europe buried in public debt, many wonder how world governments will solve their impending budgetary crises. The economics profession has split into two camps: those who promote more spending; and their opponents, the "deficit hawks." The spenders have been the more vocal, largely due to their dominance in mainstream academia.

Krugman Fails to "Get It" on Japan / Economics / Economic Theory

By: William_Anderson

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOne of my pet peeves with Paul Krugman is his constant rewriting of history, a rewriting that just happens to coincide with left-wing political talking points. For example, we hear that the Great Depression occurred because Herbert Hoover was a staunch believer in laissez-faire and took the advice of Treasury Secretary Andrew Mellon, who called for liquidation of bad assets to "purge" the economy of whatever was "rotten" in the system.

The Inflationist View of History / Economics / Inflation

By: MISES

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleA very popular doctrine maintains that progressive lowering of the monetary unit's purchasing power played a decisive role in historical evolution. It is asserted that mankind would not have reached its present state of well-being if the supply of money had not increased to a greater extent than the demand for money. The resulting fall in purchasing power, it is said, was a necessary condition of economic progress. The intensification of the division of labor and the continuous growth of capital accumulation, which have centupled the productivity of labor, could ensue only in a world of progressive price rises.

U.S. Jobs Contract by 36,000; Unemployment Rate Steady at 9.7% / Economics / Employment

By: Mike_Shedlock

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleToday the BLS reported 36,000 job losses with the unemployment rate holding at 9.7%. Before diving into the numbers let's analyze the snow job ahead of the report.

Speaking before Congress, Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke harped about snow, warning policymakers will "to be careful about not overinterpreting" the upcoming data." In the wake of that warning, economists busily upped their projections for job losses in February, some by as much as 220,000 jobs.

We Need Bigger Budget Deficits Or We're Toast / Economics / Government Spending

By: Mike_Whitney

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleBarack Obama must choose between high unemployment or large fiscal deficits. It's one or the other. If he chooses to increase government spending and provide a second round of stimulus; unemployment will fall, the output gap will narrow, business confidence will strengthen, and the economy will continue on the path of recovery. If he refuses to provide more stimulus; unemployment will hover around 10 percent, credit will continue to contract, confidence will flag, and the economy will underperform for years to come.

An Economic Storm is Brewing / Economics / Inflation

By: John_Townsend

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhen the tech bubble burst in 2000, Greenspan tried to “fix” the problem by cutting rates and printing money.  Fix the problem he did … well sort of!  What Greenspan did was create two new bubbles in the credit and real estate markets to replace the tech bubble that had burst.  Millions of jobs were created in these two industries.  Much needed jobs to replace the ones lost as the tech boom came to an end.

Economic Recession, Depression, or Systematic Breakdown / Economics / Recession 2008 - 2010

By: James_Quinn

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAs crooked politicians, Federal Reserve hacks, and cheerleading media pundits inform you the recession is over, you probably have a sneaking suspicion they are lying.

The National Bureau of Economic Research is the arbiter of business cycle recessions. They define a recession as “a significant decline in economic activity spread across the economy, lasting more than a few months, normally visible in real GDP, real income, employment, industrial production.”

Is Anyone Else Sick of this Nascent Economic Recovery Talk? / Economics / Economic Recovery

By: Mike_Shedlock

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe buzzword of the day is "nascent". It means "beginning to exist or develop". The word is everywhere you look.

Moreover, talk of "nascency" seems like it has been going on forever. Perhaps because it has. Here are some prime examples.

IMF Recommends Doubling Inflation Targets! / Economics / Inflation

By: Claus_Vogt

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleI grew up in Germany, a country that went through hyperinflation twice during the 20th Century. Maybe that’s the reason I learned inflation is bad and inflationary policies are diabolic.

Inflationary periods are highly unjust. They undermine the ethics of hard work and thrift. They destroy solidarity, lead to widespread hardship and often to social unrest.

Is The Recovery Real? The US Economy is Set for a “Double-Dip” Recession / Economics / Recession 2008 - 2010

By: Paul_Craig_Roberts

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleHappy news! The government has come up with a 5.9 percent GDP growth rate in the fourth quarter of 2009. The recession is over.

Or is it? Statistician John Williams has informed us that 69 percent of this growth, or 4.1 percentage points, is the result of inventory accumulation. That leaves a 1.8 percent growth rate, and the 1.8 percent is likely due to the underestimate of inflation and other statistical problems.

And in those days, Greece sought out the top runners, rather than compete for a discipline not approved by the International Olympic Committee (IOC): governmental financial engineering.

Dont Bet on a Economic Recovery / Economics / Recession 2008 - 2010

By: Peter_Schiff

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIt is astounding how many economists, government officials, and Wall Street strategists construe the current economic conditions as evidence of a bona fide recovery. It is a testament to the power of the rose colored glasses handed out by our nation's leading universities that such a feeling could be widely held despite the clear and present danger that compounds daily. The myopia leads us to enact policies that actually exacerbate our problems. The "remedies" are postponing, perhaps indefinitely, a true recovery.
