Cash for Clunkers Plan, with Bread and Circuses in Pax Americana / Economics / Economic Stimulus

By: Michael_Pento

While I was on a bull/bear debate last week on CNBC Reports with Dennis Kneale, the host referred to our country as Pax Americana. The name was given in reference to the Pax Romana (an era of peace and prosperity enjoyed by the Romans in the first and second century AD). But, like the Roman empire of the second century, we have now resorted to our own version of Bread and Circuses in the form of massive deficit spending and currency devaluation. I can think of no better example than the “Cash for Clunkers” program sponsored by the Administration and Congress.

So says the cover of Newsweek! The RECESSION IS OVER! I am so glad they know the future. Where were they in predicting the calamity that the majority of the world went through? The global recession has left few survivors. Home prices throughout most of the world have imploded. This economic recession has destroyed families and some are living in tent cities.

Defending Capitalism / Economics / Economic Theory

By: Anthony_Ebin

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleI recently got into an argument with a marketing executive of India's biggest mutual fund, Unit Trust of India. We were discussing the recent media coverage of the 'public' outrage over a new Indian TV show called 'Sach ka Samna', it is the Indian counterpart to the American show 'Moment of Truth'. I haven't seen the show but I did see the public condemnation hailed on Indian media. It didn't bother me that people were speaking out against the show, but it did bother me when I saw members of Government condemning the show as if whole families were being murdered. It is surprising that the one thing that offends the government happens to be the revelation of truth.1

Balkan-Style Inflation Is Coming to Us, Thanks to Our Masters / Economics / Inflation

By: LewRockwell

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMichael S. Rozeff writes: In 1963, Milton Friedman and Anna Schwartz wrote "Inflation is always and everywhere a monetary phenomenon." The thrust of this statement is that inflation is caused by unsound monetary arrangements – not by those who are raising prices or asking for higher wages, and not by oil speculators or by dealers in foreign exchange. This statement was made at a time when blame was being placed for inflation on groups in society.

Developing Economies Lead the Way Out of Global Recession / Economics / Economic Recovery

By: Lloyds_TSB

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleFollowing the onset of the global credit crisis two years ago, it was generally believed that developing economies, particularly in Asia, would be better placed to weather the storm than some of the more advanced economies, such as the US and UK. It was reasoned that the export-orientated, savings-rich countries, with the support of China, faced little prospect of an external payments crisis and were one step removed from the bursting of the debt bubble created in western economies. De-coupling was the buzzword at that time. Yet, over the subsequent twelve to eighteen months, expectations that the developing world could distance itself from the global credit crisis faded amid a collapse in world trade.

By: Paul_L_Kasriel

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe Commerce Department's first guess at second-quarter real GDP has the U.S. economy contracting at only 1.0% annual rate compared to the first quarter's downwardly revised annualized contraction of 6.4% (previously reported as a 5.5% rate of contraction). On a year-over-year basis, real GDP was down 3.9% in the second quarter, the most severe year-over-year decline in the post-WWII era (see Chart 1).

Why Deflation … Not Inflation … Remains the Problem / Economics / Deflation

By: Money_and_Markets

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleBryan Rich writes: Currency values are highly influenced by interest rates … a key driver in determining the flow of global capital.

For example, if you lived in Japan for the past decade, you would have experienced a decade of near-zero interest rates. Therefore, you might have shopped outside your home country for a better return on your money.

Economic Arguments Against the Re-nomination of Bernanke as Fed Chairman / Economics / Central Banks

By: Paul_L_Kasriel

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleI Come Neither to Praise Nor to Bury Bernanke - No one is indispensable. There are plenty of well-qualified candidates to replace Ben Bernanke as chairman of the Federal Reserve Board of Governors. So, the Republic will survive whether or not Ben Bernanke is re-nominated as Fed chairman. But let us be objective in assessing the job he has done as chairman. In my opinion, Anna Schwartz was not objective in her July 26 NYT op-ed piece arguing for the dumping of Bernanke.
