A Wiser Use of Borrowed Money / Economics / US Debt

By: Andy_Sutton

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIt nearly slipped through the cracks this week as mediastocracy marveled at the apparent lack of inflation as the PPI and CPI reports his the wires. However, just beneath the surface, the financial and economic metamorphosis continues unabated. I am talking about Qatar and its very successful bond sale.

The Pro-Free-Market Program for Economic Recovery / Economics / Economic Recovery

By: George_Reisman

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleGood afternoon, ladies and gentlemen: As you all know, we are in a severe economic downturn. The official unemployment rate now exceeds 10 percent and according to many observers is actually substantially higher. Within the last year or so, our financial system has been rocked to its foundations. The collapse of the housing bubble and the numerous defaults and bankruptcies connected with it brought down major financial institutions, such as Bear-Stearns, Lehman Brothers, and Merrill Lynch. It also brought down numerous small and medium-sized banks and threatened to bring down even such banking giants as Citigroup and Bank of America.

The Weak U.S. Dollar Was Supposed to Fix Everything / Economics / US Dollar

By: Michael_Pento

The inflation redux plan from the Fed and Washington is based on zero interest rates, massive deficits and quantitative easing, which are designed to bring down the value of the U.S. dollar and create inflation. That is the truth, despite promises from Treasury Secretary Geithner that he really means it this time when he says the U.S. has a strong dollar policy--the irony being, that he says this while concurrently begging the Chinese to allow the dollar to fall vs. the Renminbi. But their hopes placed in a lower dollar are woefully misguided and all that is being accomplished is to put into place the same conditions that brought the global financial system to its knees.

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMartin Hutchinson writes: In a visit to Japan in the early 1990s, U.S. President George H.W. Bush threw up over the Japanese prime minister. When President Barack Obama visited Japan last weekend, he offered an effusive bow to the Emperor Akihito.

Politically, U.S.-Japanese relations have improved dramatically during that two-decade stretch.

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article

Last week a student in my MBA-level intermediate-macro seminar raised a provocative question. We were discussing the various kinds of (price) deflation and which kinds, according to Austrians, are benign and accommodate consumer preferences, and which are malignant and conflict with consumer preferences.

Keynes the Man as Rotten as His Economic Theory - Part 2 / Economics / Economic Theory

By: Murray_N_Rothbard

Continued From Part 1

Keynes's Political Economy

In The General Theory, Keynes set forth a unique politicoeconomic sociology, dividing the population of each country into several rigidly separated economic classes, each with its own behavioral laws and characteristics, each carrying its own implicit moral evaluation. First, there is the mass of consumers: dumb, robotic, their behavior fixed and totally determined by external forces. In Keynes's assertion, the main force is a rigid proportion of their total income, namely, their determined "consumption function."

Keynes the Man as Rotten as His Economic Theory / Economics / Economic Theory

By: Murray_N_Rothbard

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleJohn Maynard Keynes, the man – his character, his writings, and his actions throughout life – was composed of three guiding and interacting elements. The first was his overweening egotism, which assured him that he could handle all intellectual problems quickly and accurately and led him to scorn any general principles that might curb his unbridled ego. The second was his strong sense that he was born into, and destined to be a leader of, Great Britain's ruling elite.

The U.S. Recession Jobless Interest Rate Conundrum / Economics / Recession 2008 - 2010

By: Tim_Iacono

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleJust about everywhere you look these days in the financial media, when the topic of discussion turns to the plunging U.S. dollar, you'll hear someone saying something like, "Unless the Fed raises interest rates, the dollar's got nowhere to go but down".

And then someone invariably says, "But the central bank can't raise interest rates. Not with the unemployment rate at over ten percent!"

By: Brian_Bloom

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleA retired friend, an academic in a field unrelated to the subject of economics or finance, recently asked me to tell him what I thought was happening in these (to him) surreal worlds. Why are some people so bearish that they were effectively anticipating the end of the world whilst others are insisting that a bull market is upon us?

UK Budget Deficit Could Hit £200 Billion, 18% of GDP / Economics / UK Debt

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe public sector net borrowing requirement (PSBR), which is the deficit between government revenues and expenditure for October came in at £11.4 billion (£0 Oct 2008), the worst October since records began which surprised mainstream academic economist projections for the month of between £4-7 billion which compares against my own projection of £12 billion. The deficit for 2009/10 now totals £86.9 billion which on face value is inline with the the Governments target of £175 billion by the end of the current financial year.

United States at Recession or Inflation Crossroads / Economics / US Economy

By: John_Browne

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe U.S. economy is in uncertain times. Analysts are split between those seeing recovery and those fearing a second downturn. This confusion is being echoed in the highest levels of government as President Obama simultaneously speaks about the need for more federal spending and warns of the dangers of increased debt. As the volatile markets indicate, investors are not only confused - they are seriously concerned.

Will Consumer Spending Really be Different This Time? / Economics / Economic Recovery

By: Hans_Wagner

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMost analysts believe the American consumer has changed their free spending ways. Every article on the state of the consumer indicates they have cut their spending, are saving more, and paying off their enormous debt. Everywhere you go, they expect this pattern will continue as the consumer had fundamentally changed their ways. But have they really?

Deflationists Are WRONG, Prepare for the INFLATION Mega-Trend / Economics / Inflation

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe jist of the deflationists argument is that debt deleveraging MUST trigger huge consumer and asset price deflation. Whilst we have all witnessed huge asset price deflation and some consumer price deflation during 2008 and into 2009. However we have also witnessed unprecedented government and central bank actions of this year, which have ignited asset price inflation with more to come that is now starting to feed into consumer price inflation.

Three Reasons Why Inflation Will Not Be Stopped / Economics / Inflation

By: Dr_Jeff_Lewis

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleInflationary practices are the primary driver of growth in the value of precious metals, and they are already in play to combat the credit crunch.  Although the Federal Reserve is planning its exit strategy, there is little chance one will actually be enacted – which means that inflation will continue to bulldoze the value of the US dollar.

U.S. Economy Will Dodge Double Dip Recession / Economics / Economic Recovery

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDon Miller writes: Historically, the U.S. stock market has been one of the key leading indicators of a U.S. economic rebound.

With the Standard & Poor’s 500 Index up more than 60% from its March lows – and the Dow Jones Industrial Average up nearly 40% – prognosticators are finally confident that the U.S. economy will dodge the “double-dip” recession that has been the focus of much fear since the Bush and Obama administrations launched their financial counterattacks on the worst financial crisis since the Great Depression.
