Fed Policy Makers Wasting $10 Trillion on Bailout Liabilities / Economics / Credit Crisis Bailouts

By: David_Haas

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhat These Dangerous Clowns Don’t Understand - I had the unnerving experience last night of staying up late watching C-Span as U.S. Senators hammered and then shot down the bailout bill for the Detroit“Big 3″ (a misnomer?) automakers. I must admit, there was a great deal of heart-felt passion in the words of the representatives who were courageous enough to speak out and it was this rare display of authenticity and, dare-I-say, credibility that kept me watching.

The Global Economic Crisis- Bad and Worsening / Economics / Recession 2008 - 2010

By: Stephen_Lendman

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn a new article, economics professor Richard Wolff explains the current crisis in Marxian terms. It "emerged from the workings of the capitalist class structure. Capitalism's history displays repeated boom-bust cycles punctuated by bubbles. They range unpredictably from local, shallow and short to global, deep and long." Clearly we're now in one of the latter and potentially the worst ever.

Inflation or Deflation? / Economics / Deflation

By: EWI

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleExplanation of the Price Effects of Inflation and Deflation - The U.S. Labor Department reported a 1 percent drop in the consumer price index for October 2008. The drop marked the largest decline in 61 years, and it was the first decline in that measure in nearly a quarter of a century. The 1 percent drop was twice as large as many mainstream analysts had forecast. Such a large decline in consumer prices is forcing U.S. policymakers to rethink the possibility of deflation in America. For more on deflation, we turn to Robert Prechter, the man who literally wrote a book on how to survive it.

Economic Depression, Deflation and Your Financial Survival / Economics / Recession 2008 - 2010

By: Money_and_Markets

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMartin Weiss writes: If you're still skeptical that we're sinking into America's Second Great Depression, you don't have to believe Alan Greenspan, who says we're already experiencing the worst financial crisis in a hundred years. Nor need you heed the news that the economy just lost a half-million more jobs or that retail sales have just suffered their worst plunge in 35 years. All you have to do is get up from your chair, open the door and take a walk outside.

China's Unique Opportunity to Shape Global Economic Future / Economics / Global Economy

By: Axel_Merk

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleChina has a unique opportunity and responsibility to shape not only its own future, but also that of the global economy. While China is by no means responsible for the plight the world faces, it has played an important role in allowing global imbalances to be built. If China decides to help prop up the world economic model that got us into trouble in the first place, we may face the same challenges again a few years down the road. Except then, China may not have $2 trillion in reserves to rescue its economy, and could face severe challenges. China will ultimately act in its own best interest, but prudent she must be. The time for China to act is now.

Real Threat is Inflation Not Deflation / Economics / Inflation

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleKeith Fitz-Gerald writes: We're “officially” in a recession and the panicky markets are bracing for deflation. But what most investors don't realize is that inflation – not deflation – is the real threat that they face.

For more than a year now, I've been telling readers and attendees at financial conferences around the world that the United States has been in a recession since last November.

Why Bailouts Will Lead to Inflation Not Deflation / Economics / Money Supply

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMartin Hutchinson writes: The U.S. Producer Price Index (PPI) and Consumer Price Index (CPI) both fell in October. Those declines – combined with sharp downward spirals in worldwide stock and commodity prices – have caused many analysts, and even central bankers, to worry that we are on the brink of deflation.

Such concerns may be warranted in the short-term. But in the long run, deflation won't be the challenge we face.

The Velocity of Money and Economic Deflation / Economics / Recession 2008 - 2010

By: John_Mauldin

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis Article"A severe global recession will lead to deflationary pressures. Falling demand will lead to lower inflation as companies cut prices to reduce excess inventory. Slack in labour markets from rising unemployment will control labor costs and wage growth. Further slack in commodity markets as prices fall will lead to sharply lower inflation. Thus inflation in advanced economies will fall towards the 1 per cent level that leads to concerns about deflation.

By: Christopher_Laird

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleTrade and Currency Tensions in 2009 - Most people know that, in recent years, there have been tensions between the US and China over two big issues. One is that China runs big trade surpluses with the US, which the Democrats have been wanting to do sanctions on. The other is they keep their currency, the Yuan/RMB, weak compared to the USD, and that is also something the Democrats have wanted to sanction.

U.S. Economy Disintegrating as Government Supports Zombie Banks / Economics / Credit Crisis 2008

By: Jim_Willie_CB

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe USGovt and financial system is growing deep commitments to support dead entities. Their business models have failed. They are bankrupt. Although with faulty business model, often l aced with fraud, they have been fully adopted by the USGovt and US Federal Reserve. They are considered too big to fail. Or one should say, they are too connected to the power structure, or they are too intertwined with explosive financial devices, or one from their own tribe is running the Dept of Treasury. Capitalism embraces the Darwinian principles bound by survival of the fittest. The United States bears absolutely no resemblance to such principles anymore, at least at the upper corporate echelons.
