 “There is no bailout and no "plan-B" for the Greek economy because there is no risk it will default on its debt”.

Inflation Not the Cause of Every Price Increase / Economics / Deflation

By: Chris_Galakoutis

Costs continue to go up for the goods and services that Americans consume on a daily basis.  While today we can all buy stocks, real estate and fill up our gas tanks with fewer dollars than in 2007 and early 2008, the costs of other items continue to go up.  For instance, I just received a bill from the CT Secretary of State for the fee I pay every year for my LLC.  The fee has doubled.  Inflationists point to this type of thing and argue that this is a sign of inflation.

No Easy Way Out From America's Debt Crisis / Economics / US Debt

By: Mike_Larson

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleI just got back from my first lengthy vacation in years — to New York, London, and Paris. I enjoyed many fine meals and fun nights out with friends. I got to see everything from the Rosetta Stone and St. Paul’s Cathedral to the Mona Lisa and the Eiffel Tower.

The only real downside? The lousy January weather!

America Must Innovate or Die as China Scientists Lead the World in Research Growth / Economics / Technology

By: Gordon_T_Long

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleUS innovation is plummeting faster than our Financial Markets did during the 2008 financial crisis!

The future of America is presently in peril, not just because of the “banksters’’ shadowy ways, but because of a sputtering Innovation Engine that has had the fuel “choked off’. It has now gone “critical” and can no longer be left to only the carping of the academic community.

Davos, Jobs are Families / Economics / Employment

By: Pravda

Let us spell a message to the Davos World Economic Forum before it gathers next week: Jobs are families. As unemployment rates reach record levels there can be no doubt that the current monetarist-market-oriented economic model contains vectors which create endemic instability, engender extreme instability in the labour market and send families lurching from one crisis to the next in a boom-and-bust climate. Perhaps the economists at Davos can do what they are paid for: produce an alternative that works.

Greece Crisis Shows Global Debt Bomb Could Explode During 2010 / Economics / Global Debt Crisis

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMartin Hutchinson writes: The big story in the international markets so far in the New Year has been the increasing shakiness of a number of countries' government bonds, with Greece right now being the most troubled of all.

Since U.S. investors tend to avoid foreign government bonds, many will dismiss this as an irrelevant development.

Does Anyone in Washington Know What Needs to Be Done to Create Jobs? / Economics / Employment

By: Paul_L_Kasriel

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThis is a question that I often get as I speak to groups around the country. Based on the ADP monthly survey of employment, small- and medium-sized firms (less than 500 employees each) are the fount (or black hole, as of recent months) of jobs in the U.S. economy (see Chart 1).So, rather than asking Washington career politicians what it takes to create more jobs, why don't we poll small businessmen and businesswomen?

Retail Sales Discount Offers Are the Language of Action, Not a Trick / Economics / Economic Theory

By: MISES

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticlePredrag Rajsic writes: In the last several months, retail stores have sales on all sorts of products. Discounts go as far as 90% off. Some of these widespread price reductions can be attributed to the holiday season behind us, while most of them, it seems, were triggered by the recent fall in consumer demand due to the macroeconomic downturn.

U.S. on the Brink of Bankruptcy? / Economics / US Debt

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMartin Hutchinson writes: U.S. President Barack Obama's budget for 2011, presented on Monday, shows a deficit of $1.3 trillion for the fiscal year that ends that September. That shortfall is actually $287 billion more than the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) had projected less than a week earlier, when it had released a budget forecast of its own for that same fiscal year.

Beyond Economic Stimulus, Fiscal Policy After the Great Recession / Economics / Economic Recovery

By: Global_Research

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAndrew Jackson writes: As the communiqué from the Pittsburgh G20 summit put it, “it worked”. Unprecedented macro-economic stimulus in the form of ultra low interest rates and large government deficits has pulled the global economy back from the abyss, at least for now. But what comes next? Conventional economic wisdom is setting the stage for deep and damaging cuts to public expenditures if labour and the progressive left do not win the argument for public investment led growth and increased fiscal capacity.

Global Insolvency, How will the U.S. Service its Debt? / Economics / US Debt

By: Bob_Chapman

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe recent election in Massachusetts of Republican Scott Brown to the Senate was a seminal event. It ended the Democratic administration’s ability to ram through legislation. It changed the game. The locomotive hit the bunter.

China saw the error of its ways in overstimulating its economy and halted bank lending. The Senate majority refusing to seat the new Senator Brown passed a tremendous increase in short-term government debt. Goldman Sachs and others thumbed their noses at the rest of America and distributed giant bonuses as the country wallowed in depression and 22.5% unemployment. Finally we have Paul Volcker proclaiming the end of too big to fail and stopping banks from trading their own accounts.

It dealt with the build-up in the Federal Reserve System's monetary base as a result of its purchases of government debt, especially Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac debt, in the fall of 2008. Its title and subhead tell the story:

Dangerous Recession Economic Recovery Lessons of 1937 / Economics / Recession 2008 - 2010

By: MISES

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleJonathan M. Finegold Catalan writes: Many economists have already compared the years 1929–1932 to those of 2007–2009, and the current period of recovery to the time period 1933–1939. It was only a matter of time before they began to look for a comparison between the recession of 1937 and a potential "double dip" today.

U.S. Deepening Debt Crisis, Be Afraid of Bernanke Reappointment / Economics / US Debt

By: Michael_Hudson

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIf the economy deteriorates in the L-shaped “hockey-stick” rut that many economists forecast, what political price will President Obama and the Democrats pay for having returned the financial keys to the Bush Republican appointees who gave away the store in the first place? Reappointing Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke may end up injuring not only the economy but also the Democratic Party for years to come. Recognizing this, Republicans made populist points by opposing his reappointment during the Senate confirmation hearings last Thursday, January 27 – the day after Mr. Obama’s State of the Union address.

US GDP: The breakdown / Economics / US Economy

By: Vishal_Damor

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleU.S. government declared its fourth quarter GDP which grew at a 5.7% annual rate. This number didn’t result from actual economic growth per se, but from a slower rate of decline of inventories.  Inventory numbers that were falling at a slower rate acccounted for approximately 3.4% of the 5.7% GDP growth at the end of 2009. There has been a decrease in inventories for seven quarters in a row. Private businesses decreased inventories $33.5 billion in the fourth quarter, following a bigger decrease of $139.2 billion in the third quarter and an even biggerdecrease of $160.2 billion in the second.

Greeks Bearing Gifts

"Our immersion in the details of crises that have arisen over the past eight centuries and in data on them has led us to conclude that the most commonly repeated and most expensive investment advice ever given in the boom just before a financial crisis stems from the perception that 'this time is different.' That advice, that the old rules of valuation no longer apply, is usually followed up with vigor.
