The Deeper Origins of the Economic Crisis / Economics / Recession 2008 - 2010

By: Global_Research

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleShamus Cooke writes: For all the horror the global economic crisis has caused for so many people, one progressive consequence has emerged: many of these people are becoming politically conscious — searching for information to better understand their political and economic system. They want to know how things got the way they did and what can be done about it. Unfortunately, much of the resulting analysis has focused too little on actual causes, and too much on abstract financial details and other consequences of deeper economic problems.

Growing Accustomed to Fed Stupidity / Economics / Central Banks

By: LewRockwell

Richard Daughty writes: I knew that gold was doing okay, but I did not know how well exactly, although I knew that gold bullion was up about 3.5% from this time last year, which is better, and by a long shot, than almost anything else you can name, but which is not, I admit, very much.

Financial Version of the Swine Flu Infects German Economy / Economics / Euro-Zone

By: Michal_Matovcik

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMonth ago we posted article German 1 Trillion Toxic Assets Problem, where a report by Sueddeutsche Zeitung cites an internal paper by the banking regulator that puts the total of bad assets in the German banking system at €816bn. This report caused outrage among German officials, as always when someone uncovers the truth. The above mentioned number includes toxic securitized assets, and also bad loans, and unlike previous lists, this report named  the banks. In one case, half of all assets of a particular Landesbank are classified as toxic, Commerzbank was also on the list with a huge depot of toxic waste. This is now past.

Rebooting the Global Economy / Economics / Global Economy

By: HRA_Advisory

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe greatest economic realignment since Genghis Kahn took over Eurasia’s trade routes is continuing apace.  The west remains mired in an assets contraction of its own making, and the east is refocused on channeling its growth engines into domestic consumption.  The resource sector, which is our focus and which has been governed by those growth engines for a decade and half, is indicating at least the expectation of continuing gains in the east.  That does not mean we ignore what is going on the developed west, plus Japan.

When Japan's so-called "Lost Decade" began with a bang in the early 1990s, she was an "OL" - an office lady - working in one of Japan's mightiest corporations and she kept her job, despite the downturn.

Are the US Consumers Ready to Go Shopping Again? / Economics / US Economy

By: Mark_OByrne

The recent Consumer Confidence survey conducted in the US revealed a surprising increase in consumer confidence for the month of May. In marked contrast to the previous few months, May's figure was the highest it has been since September 2008. However, while better than at the start of the year, the figure remains at historically depressed levels. Furthermore, US house prices have dropped over 18% in March from the same period last year.

Labour Attempts to Ignite UK Consumer Mini Boom as ONS Revises Retail Sales Methodology / Economics / UK Economy

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe ONS finally came clean to confirm that the retail sales statistics are inaccurate and that it had revised the methodology in the way it calculates retail sales data, the data revision has ironically resulted in a better than expected boost to retail sales for a rise of 0.9% for April 09. The boost in retail sales data is inline with other observed trends in many areas of the economy which are feeding through towards a summer bounce in sectors of the economy such as for house prices in response to unprecedented actions of zero interest rates, 12% budget deficit spending and printing £150 billion out of thin air to buy government bonds and thus force down longer term interest rates.

The Global Recession Gets Worse
Where Will the Money Come From?
The Paradox of Deficits

From ghoulies and ghosties, And long-leggedy beasties, And things that go bump in the night, Good Lord, deliver us! --Old Scottish Prayer

There is something that is bumping around in my worry closet. The bond market is not behaving as if there is deflation in our future, and the dollar is getting weaker. Unemployment keeps rising, but most of all, the US government deficit looks to be spinning out of control. This week we look at all of this and take a tour around the world to see what is happening. There is a lot of interesting material to cover.

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.

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.
