Fed Planning Inflationary Dollar Destroying 15-Fold Increase In US Monetary Base / Economics / HyperInflation

By: Eric_deCarbonnel

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe fed is planning moves that would more than double its balance-sheet assets by September to $4.5 trillion from $1.9 trillion. Whether expressing approval or concern over the fed's intentions, most commentators fail to understand the real magnitude of the projected expansion of the US monetary base because they don't take into account the amount of dollars circulating abroad.

The Great American Banking Experiment with Fiat Currency / Economics / Fiat Currency

By: Andy_Sutton

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOne of the most common questions that folks who are becoming newly acquainted with terms like ‘fiat money' and ‘fractional reserve banking' are asking is “How did we get here?” For sure, the recent publicity of 21 st Century Tea Parties along with the occurrence of the worst financial crisis in recorded history has people asking questions. In terms of the American obsession with central banking and fiat currency, 1913 is generally identified as the point where the country went wrong. In truth, however, our obsession with funny money has transcended all; including even, the birth of the nation.

Recession Light at the End of the Tunnel or an Oncoming Freight Train? / Economics / Recession 2008 - 2010

By: Paul_L_Kasriel

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWith regard to the economy, we believe there are faint signs of light at the end of the tunnel. Real consumer spending increased by 0.4% in January (and is likely to be revised up) and the decline in February nominal retail sales of 0.1% suggests that the decline in real consumer spending that month will not be severe. For the first quarter as a whole, we now expect a contraction in consumer spending much less severe than last year's fourth-quarter contraction of 4.3%. Although we do not expect to see outright growth in real consumer spending until the fourth quarter of this year, we believe the deepest quarterly contraction is behind us.

Consumers A Paycheck Away From Ruin / Economics / Recession 2008 - 2010

By: Mike_Shedlock

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleNew surveys show that Consumers are Just a Paycheck or Two Away From Ruin .

The results of a bevy of surveys found a growing number of consumers are only a couple paychecks away from a household collapse even as many scramble to shore up savings. Rainy-day funds appear to be a distant memory as households burn cash to cover food and energy bills as well as mortgage and car payments.

Monetary and Fiscal Failure, Fraud, and Fear of What's Next / Economics / Recession 2008 - 2010

By: Stephen_Lendman

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleEven the powerful are worried with the IMF on February 7 saying advanced economies are in "depression (and) the worst cannot be ruled out." Forecasting a 2010 recovery is "very uncertain" at this time as further financial turmoil may disrupt it regardless of policies adopted, and trouble is outpacing resources to alleviate it.

United States Economic Collapse Facing Its Weimar Moment / Economics / Recession 2008 - 2010

By: Submissions

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleRobert Freeman writes: In early 1919, Germany put in place a new government to begin rebuilding the country after its crushing defeat in World War I. But the right-wing forces that had led the country into the War and lost the War conspired even before it was over to destroy the new government, the "Weimar Republic." They succeeded.

The Deflation Myth / Economics / Deflation

By: Mike_Stathis

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThis is another myth I want to clear up. For some strange reason, economists, and those who actually give credence to what they say seem to think that a single period eighty years ago set a precedent cast in stone for what to expect from this depression. As a result, the masters of propaganda continue to insist that you cannot have a depression without deflation. Apparently, these “experts” have never heard of data points. You cannot expect to make credible conclusions based on one period. You need several periods at minimum in order to transpose similar conclusions.

Consumer Demand For Everything Crashes: Trade Deficit At 6 Year Low / Economics / Recession 2008 - 2010

By: Mike_Shedlock

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMany were of the belief that the trade deficit would widen as the US recession strengthened. The only way that could have happened is if oil prices stayed stubbornly high. While the price of oil may have bottomed, odds of it shooting up towards $100 again in the near future are slim.

Credit Card Cancer Spreading Through the Economy / Economics / Recession 2008 - 2010

By: Peter_Schiff

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThis week, with his pronouncement that "credit is the lifeblood of a healthy economy," President Obama reiterated what has been one of his most common themes in diagnosing our economic problem. The president has relied on this bedrock belief to propose policies that place the restoration of credit as the highest priority. However, despite his seemingly earnest intentions, the president and his economic advisors have misdiagnosed the ailment. Savings, not credit, is the lifeblood of a healthy economy. When not used properly credit can be like a cancer that sickens an otherwise healthy economy.

Don't Bet on Hyperinflation! / Economics / HyperInflation

By: Mike_Stathis

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleFor several months now, I've heard all of this talk of hyperinflation. I'm sure you have too. I've seen that word so many times over the past year that I might have even used it without realizing it. As I wrote in the original edition of America 's Financial Apocalypse, “inflation is certainly going to be a very big problem.” I stand by this previous forecast first made in 2006. However, hyperinflation isn't going to occur. While I may be wrong about some things in the future, I won't be wrong about this. Quite simply, America would go to war before allowing hyperinflation to set in.

Mathew wrotes: Strategy For Their Survival And Growth - In spite of their oil wealth and oil reserve funds, GCC Countries are not free from the all pervading financial crisis that turned into a global economic crisis.

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWilliam Patalon III writes: When it comes to the U.S. financial crisis, it's tough to know just what to think or who to believe these days. If you want an example, just look at yesterday (Tuesday). Citigroup Inc. ( C ) Chief Executive Officer Vikram S. Pandit revealed that the embattled banking giant was having its best quarter since 2007 , and said that he's confident about Citi's capital strength - statements that unleashed a flood of speculation that the worst of the banking crisis is over.
