NO Economic Recovery, Multiple Raging Economic Storms / Economics / Recession 2008 - 2010

By: Money_and_Markets

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMartin Weiss writes: Any economist fixated on so-called “signs of a recovery” needs to have his head examined.

As I’ll prove to you in a moment, the hard-nosed reality is that five major economic cyclones are in progress at this very moment.

Chinese Economic Recovery a Mirage as Deflation Accelerates / Economics / Recession 2008 - 2010

By: Mike_Shedlock

Consumer prices are falling year over year in China. Bear in mind that falling prices do not constitute deflation which is a monetary phenomenon (a reduction in money supply and credit) not a price phenomenon. In this case we see both.

Did Bernanke Pull the U.S. Economy Back From the Brink of Depression? / Economics / Recession 2008 - 2010

By: Mike_Whitney

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleFed chief Ben Bernanke's understanding of financial crises may have kept the country from sliding into another Great Depression. That doesn't mean that he's fixed the credit system, removed the non-performing loans from the banks, or stopped housing prices from crashing. It simply means that pumping liquidity into the system--via huge increases in the money supply, zero-percent interest rates, and multi-trillion dollar lending facilities--has either slowed or reversed the rate of decline in many sectors of the economy.

Recession Ending?, Green Shoots of Economic Recovery? / Economics / Recession 2008 - 2010

By: John_Mauldin

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleA Few Thoughts on Recessions
Are the Green Shoots Really Dandelion Weeds?
Is That a Leaky Bucket?
Frugality Is Back in Vogue
Where Will the Jobs Come From?

Go to Google. Type in "green shoots." In about a 10th of a second you will find 28,900,000 references. Scrolling through a few pages, you find a lot of references to the beginning of the end of the recession. Today we look at some data to see if we can indeed see the end. Most readers will be surprised to know that the number of people employed in the US went up (!) in April. Yet so did the unemployment rate. Is that green shoot just another dandelion weed in our economic garden?

By: Mike_Shedlock

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThis morning, the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) released the April Employment Report. Nonfarm payroll employment continued to decline in April (-539,000), and the unemployment rate rose from 8.5 to 8.9 percent, the Bureau of Labor Statistics of the U.S. Department of Labor reported today. Since the recession began in December 2007, 5.7 million jobs have been lost. In April, job losses were large and widespread across nearly all major private-sector industries. Overall, private sector employment fell by 611,000.

By: Global_Research

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticlePaul Watson writes: Elitists divided on whether to quickly sink economy and replace it with new world order, or set in motion long, agonizing depression. On the eve of the 2009 Bilderberg Group conference, which is due to be held May 14-17 at the 5 star Nafsika Astir Palace Hotel in Vouliagmeni, Greece, investigative reporter Daniel Estulin has uncovered shocking details of what  the elitists plan to do with the economy over the course of the next year.

This is Not the 1930’s Depression, Which Means High Inflation to Come / Economics / Inflation

By: Michael_Pollaro

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMany comparisons have been made between today’s financial and economic crisis and the Great Depression, none more than the specter of deflation.  Well, contrary to what happened during the Great Depression and contrary to the deflationary forecasts of government leaders, central bankers and economists, deflation, while always possible, is, in this man’s opinion, highly unlikely.  Why’s that?  Because the monetary and political framework of today is nothing like that of the early 1930’s.  In fact, it’s nothing like anything seen, ever.  Quite simply, today’s monetary and political framework is built for inflation, as much inflation as the government, the Federal Reserve and their banking partners want.   And inflation, and a whole lot of it, is exactly what we are about to get.

China Succeeds in Fighitng Recession, Driving Gold, Stock and Commodities Higher / Economics / China Economy

By: John_Browne

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThis week, based on indicators of improving Chinese manufacturing activity, commodity and stock markets surged in the Pacific Rim. It appears that China's recession-fighting policies are being judged successful. The 41 percent rally in Chinese stocks in 2009 from the 2008 lows dwarfs the single digit rallies in the U.S. and Europe. With Western economies still sluggish, eyes are turning eastward for solutions to the global economic riddle. As such, recent hints at the direction of Chinese monetary policy should be closely regarded.

To varying degrees, recession and depression gripped globally. “The outlook for global consumption remains bleak.

United States to Recovery from Recession by the End of 2009 / Economics / Recession 2008 - 2010

By: Pravda

The head of the United States Federal Reserve Ben Bernanke addressing the Joint Economic Committee of the Congress said that the American economy may recover from the nosedive and start to grow again as early as this year. Even in this case the business activity will remain restrained: companies will be careful with creating new working places. The level of unemployment will be high still and may get even higher in the next months.

Debt Fuelled Tax Payer Bailouts and Economic Stimulus: If You Believe Borrowing Leads to Prosperity / Economics / US Debt

By: James_Quinn

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe 1970’s were a simpler time. As kids, we listened to All The Young Dudes by Mott the Hoople on our portable record players. We would cut Monkees’ .98s from the back of our Raisin Bran cereal boxes. There were maybe ten TV stations we could watch. For entertainment we would play board games like The Game of Life, Monopoly, and Risk. I remember having a two day Risk match with friends from our neighborhood. Our parents didn’t smother us with attention. We created our own fun. We organized our own roller hockey league with games played in our back alley and on the side streets of our neighborhood. We played half-ball against the back of our row homes.

Misleading Jobless Claims Economic Data and Recessions / Economics / Market Manipulation

By: Tim_Iacono

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOne of the many "green shoots" that has popped up recently for the U.S. economy is the possible peaking of weekly jobless claims, what has been increasingly referred to as a "reliable" indicator for the end of recessions since 1967 when this data was first collected. The chart below, similar to the one published by CR in this item from a couple weeks ago shows the correlation.

Emerging Markets Recovering First From the Economic Crisis / Economics / Articles

By: Pravda

The world community has been eagerly devouring the good news for the past few days. The news comes from the East. First of all, China gives us hope that the crisis is going to end. Analysts speak about the inspiring perspectives of all BRIC countries (Brazil, Russia, India, China). Experts say that the countries have no debt burden, which is obviously their main advantage. Nevertheless, despite the market growth, the real conditions of the Russian economy are far from being favorable.

Stock Markets See Patches of Blue Sky in Economic Recovery / Economics / Recession 2008 - 2010

By: PaddyPowerTrader

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleSo much for the great recession. The improvement in risk appetite has continued unabated into this week. Firmer US housing data, construction spend and Chinese PMI numbers (which rose for the first time in 9 months), combined with declining bank worries and easing swine flu concerns boosted risk appetite. To top that off, Research In Motion and Intel were upgraded and Sprint Nextel earnings beat estimates. But it appears to this writer that euphoria has got the better of common sense.

Extremely High Debt Levels Ensure Subdued Economic Recovery in 2010 / Economics / US Debt

By: John_Mauldin

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleLate last week a letter from Jim Welsh crossed my desk. I started reading and found myself being pulled through his very thoughtful letter. I have not met Jim, but think this letter is worthy of an Outside the Box. Jim Welsh of Welsh Money Management has been publishing his monthly investment letter, "The Financial Commentator", since 1985. His analysis focuses on Federal Reserve monetary policy, and how policy affects the economy and the financial markets.

Gold-Exchange Standard, Gold, and Monetary Freedom / Economics / Economic Theory

By: LewRockwell

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMichael S. Rozeff writes: Two major government economists, Christina D. Romer and Ben Bernanke, have done influential research on the Great Depression. Both implicate the State-run gold standard of that era, which differed from the pre-1914 gold standard, as a major culprit in the Great Depression. (See here and here.) Their work parallels that of other economists such as Barry Eichengreen and Peter Temin on the negative role of the interwar gold exchange standard. There is an emerging or existing consensus among economists about the negative effects of the gold-exchange standard.

U.S. Economic Recovery Lies Hidden in a Zipper / Economics / Recession 2008 - 2010

Many people prefer not to spend their money on new clothes. Purchasing new clothes is not considered essential these days, especially for those who have to spend several minutes or even hours thinking what they are going to wear today. However, the current state of affairs in the jeans-making industry shows that better times for fancy clothes are just around the corner.
