Bankrupt Britain's Debt Credit Ratings Crash / Economics / UK Debt

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOn the day when the Government announced a surge in net public borrowing for April 09 totaling £8.5 billion against £1.8 billion a year earlier (the deficit is the difference between what the government earns against what it spends), the S&P credit agency cut Britain's credit worthiness to negative from stable which puts Britain's AAA credit rating into question, the direct impact of which would be that Britain would near immediately be required to pay a higher interest rate on the continuing huge surge of bonds being issued in advance of the 2010 general election, as Labour throws all of the fiscal rules out of the window in an attempt at turning the economy around by 2010 to prevent a Westminister wipeout.

But ultimately, he's the guy with the medical degree. So, if he tells me, you know what, you've got such-and-such and you need to take such-and-such, I don't go around arguing with him or go online to see if I can find a better opinion than his.

By: Submissions

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMichael Hudson writes: It looks like bookstores are about to be swamped this summer and fall by advisories which publishers commissioned a year ago, as the economy was going off the rails. The preferred marketing strategy is to offer advice by celebrity insiders on how to restore the happy 1981-2007 era of debt-leveraged price gains for real estate, stocks and bonds. But the Bubble Economy was so debt-leveraged that it cannot reasonably be restored.

Financial Implosion and Economic Stagnation, Back To The Real Economy- Part2 / Economics / Recession 2008 - 2010

By: Global_Research

Continued from Part 1 here

A Political Economy - Economics in its classical stage, which encompassed the work of both possessive-individualists, like Adam Smith, David Ricardo, Thomas Malthus, and John Stuart Mill, and socialist thinkers such as Karl Marx, was called political economy. The name was significant because it pointed to the class basis of the economy and the role of the state. 39 To be sure, Adam Smith introduced the notion of the “invisible hand” of the market in replacing the former visible hand of the monarch. But, the political-class context of economics was nevertheless omnipresent for Smith and all the other classical economists. In the 1820s, as Marx observed, there were “splendid tournaments” between political economists representing different classes (and class fractions) of society.

Financial Implosion and Economic Stagnation, Back To The Real Economy / Economics / Recession 2008 - 2010

By: Global_Research

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleJohn Bellamy Foster and Fred Magdoff write: But, you may ask, won’t the powers that be step into the breach again and abort the crisis before it gets a chance to run its course? Yes, certainly. That, by now, is standard operating procedure, and it cannot be excluded that it will succeed in the same ambiguous sense that it did after the 1987 stock market crash. If so, we will have the whole process to go through again on a more elevated and more precarious level. But sooner or later, next time or further down the road, it will not succeed… We will then be in a new situation as unprecedented as the conditions from which it will have emerged. —Harry Magdoff and Paul Sweezy (1988) 1

There is no need to comply with these thoughts, the purpose is to start thinking.

Economic Recovery or Economy Resetting At Lower Activity Levels? / Economics / Recession 2008 - 2010

By: Mike_Whitney

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe financial channels are abuzz with talk of a recovery, but we're not out of the woods yet. In fact, the deceleration in the rate of economic decline is not a sign of recovery at all, but proof that the economy is resetting at a lower level of activity. That means the recession will drag on for some time no matter what the Fed does. The problem is the breakdown in the securitzation markets which has cut off the flow of easy credit to consumers and businesses. The credit-freeze has caused a sharp drop in retail, auto sales, furniture, electronics, travel, global trade etc.

UK CPI Inflation +2.4%, RPI Deflation -1.2% Hits Forecast Target / Economics / Deflation

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleUK RPI Inflation data of minus 1.2% for April 09 represents severe deflation in the official data. Whilst the Governments preferred CPI inflation measure has recorded a smaller decline to 2.3% which still stubbornly puts it above the Bank of England's target rate of 2%. RPI deflation is not surprising given the panic interest rate cuts from 5% at the beginning of October 2008 to just 0.5% by the last cut of March 2009, these cuts in interest rates coupled with quantitative easing aka "money printing" to drive down long-term interest rates and hence mortgage rates is resulting in real deflation for those with large mortgages of as much as minus 5%, therefore this is providing for mini 'temporary' cash flow boom for those mortgage holders that have secure employment during the recession and therefore contributing to the summer bounce in house prices.

Japans Economy Crashes by 4% in 1st Quarter, Discounted by Stealth Stocks Bull Market / Economics / Japan Economy

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Japan reported GDP contraction of 4% for the 1st Quarter of 2009 which is the worst fall on record and equates to an annualised crash of 15%. However the fall is less than the widely expected fall of 4.2%, with the stealth stocks bull market continuing to recover from the March lows, which is suggestive of much better data in quarters 2 and 3 of 2009.

Debt Crisis Economic End Game, Future Evolution of the Debt-to-GDP Ratio / Economics / Global Economy

By: John_Mauldin

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleNearly everyone I talk with has the sense that we are at some critical point in our economic and national paths, not just in the US but in the world. One path will lead us back to relative growth and another set of choices leads us down a path which will put a very real drag on economic growth and recovery. For most of us, there is very little we can do (besides vote and lobby) about the actual choices. What we can do is adjust our personal portfolios to be synchronized with the direction of the economy. The question is "What will that direction be?"

According to a story from Bloomberg this week, Japanese businessmen, housewives, and pensioners are dumping the yen against foreign currencies, especially the Australian dollar, the New Zealand dollar, and the euro.

Why the Economy Will Recover Differently This Time / Economics / US Economy

By: Hans_Wagner

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleEventually the economy will stop declining and start to recover. The manner in which it recovers will provide investors substantial profits if they have a well-founded theme to base their investing strategy. This recession is the result of substantive changes in the economy that will be with us for years to come. Once the recover begins, we should have a good idea how each sector will deal with a stumble along economy. Since the stock market anticipates a recovery by rallying earlier, it is important for investors to be prepared for the changes that are coming.
