Obama's Ignorance of Economic History Could Wreck U.S. Economy / Economics / Economic Stimulus

By: Gerard_Jackson

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn a recent talk he gave at the London School of Economics Bernanke basically laid out the thinking behind his monetary strategy with the statement: "Put out the fire first and then think about the fire code." This is code for flood the US economy with dollars and then worry about the inflationary consequences for the country. No wonder he saw nothing wrong with letting the monetary base explode by 107 per cent (from just under one trillion dollars to nearly three trillion dollars) from 8 August last year to 9 January.

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleSince the consumer is now and forever the great engine of all economic activity and growth representing approximately 70% of GDP, doesn't it make sense to re-liquify the balance sheets of the consumers/taxpayers who are arguably in worse shape than any bank, corporation or local/state government?

Peter Schiff, WSJ and Countries Must Un-peg Before They Decouple / Economics / Recession 2008 - 2010

By: Chris_Galakoutis

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe Wall Street Journal ran a piece today titled: “Right Forecast by Schiff, Wrong Plan?”

Peter Schiff is the president of the Darien, Connecticut broker-dealer firm, Euro Pacific Capital Inc., which specializes in investments in foreign dividend paying stocks. He has come under some criticism recently concerning the performance in 2008 of foreign stocks tied to his investment strategies – namely, that the U.S dollar would weaken significantly and that foreign economies and stocks would outperform those in the U.S.

Gold Outlook: Currency Debasement Risks Inflation Spiraling Out of Control / Economics / HyperInflation

By: Mark_OByrne

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleGold rose by just over 1% yesterday to over $900/oz as renewed risk aversion saw stock and bond markets come under pressure.

Gold subsequently traded sideways in Asia prior to another strong rally at 0800 GMT when gold surged from $901/oz to $926/oz in the hour. It has since given up some of those gains but remains above $920/oz. Demand remains very high internationally for etf's, gold certificates and bullion coins and bars.

By: Hans_Wagner

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDoes any Know Where the Economy is Going? - The U.S. economy has been in a recession for more than a year now. The current administration is now debating an additional stimulus package to help turn the economy around.

U.S. Heading for Japan Style Two Decade Economic Depression / Economics / Economic Depression

By: James_Quinn

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleEvery day seems worse than the previous day. Five hundred thousand people are getting laid off every month. Our banking system is on life support. Retailers are going bankrupt in record numbers. The stock market keeps descending. Home prices continue to plummet. Home foreclosures keep mounting. Consumer confidence is at record lows. You would like to close your eyes and make it go away. Not only is the news not going away, it is going to get worse and last longer than most people can comprehend. The Great Depression lasted 11 years, but the more pertinent comparison is Japan from 1990 until today. A two decade long downturn has a high likelihood of occurring in the United States. There are many similarities between the U.S. and Japan, but in many areas the U.S. has a much dire situation. If the next decade resembles the Japanese experience, there will be significant angst and social unrest.

By: Darryl_R_Schoon

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleA lifetime is not long. It is long enough, however, to lead one to believe that life is far different than it really is.

My uncle, Bobby Schoon, grew up during the Great Depression. Born in the 1920s, the 1930s were to be far different than the previous decade. My uncle came of age when the US led the world into an economic abyss where human desperation and misery were to become commonplace, an abyss that is now about to be revisited.

Protectionism and the Global Banking System Technical Insolvency / Economics / Credit Crisis 2009

By: John_Mauldin

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThis week I bring you two different articles as an offering for Outside the Box. As a way to introduce the first, let me give you the quote from Merrill Lynch economist David Rosenberg about the rising threat of global trade protectionism:

"The Financial Times weighs in on the rising threat of global trade protectionism in today's Lex Column on page 14 ("Economic Patriotism"). The FT points out that the stimulus packages of many countries include "buy local" provisions. At home, there is a proposed inclusion of a 'Buy American' provision in the economic recovery package and this could set off trade retaliation from importers of US goods. Here is what the FT had to say, 'It was trade protectionism that made the 1930s Depression "Great". Congress would do well to understand that it is in everyone's interest to keep trade open today.'"

Some Good Amid the Gloom for Investors and the Economy / Economics / Recession 2008 - 2010

By: Frank_Holmes

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhen it comes to the global economy, there's a huge surplus of bad news and there's a good chance that more is coming. Positive indicators are in short supply, but there's a good chance that more of these are coming, too. I would like to share some of the more optimistic signs and trends that we are seeing to offset a little of the negativity, just as people look for that first robin or tulip bud as proof that the gloom of winter will not last forever.

The Economic Perversity of our Banking System / Economics / Credit Crisis 2009

By: Joseph_Toronto

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleI recently wrote about the cause of this recession/depression being a collapse of the money supply. The money supply is collapsing because money is literally evaporating with each loan default and bankruptcy and is accelerated by the reverse multiplier effect of fractional reserve banking. Furthermore, given that the collapsing money supply is causing recession, banks are making things worse by doing exactly what banks are supposed to do to preserve their rapidly eroding capital. They stop their lending in a risky economy and buy risk free T-bills or earn interest in their excess reserve account at the Fed. This is the correct thing to do for bank stockholders, but incredibly and perversely is exactly the wrong thing to do for the economy.
