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.

Looking Back at the Greatest Economic Depression 2009 / Economics / Great Depression II

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleGerald Celente writes: On average, world trade fell 31 percent in January 2009. To varying degrees, recession and depression gripped globally. “The outlook for global consumption remains bleak. Exports are likely to remain lackluster until global consumers regain their appetite for consumption,” wrote Jing Ulrich, managing director at JPMorgan in Hong Kong, in response to the dire data.

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

By: Pravda

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.

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleStandard & Poor’s: S&P/Case-Shiller - home prices still declining “Data through February 2009, released today [Tuesday] by Standard & Poor’s for its S&P/Case-Shiller Home Price Indices shows continued broad based declines in the prices of existing single family homes across the United States, with 10 of the 20 metro areas showing record rates of annual decline, and 15 reporting declines in excess of 10% versus February 2008. For the first time in 16 months, however, the annual decline of the 10-City and 20-City composites did not set a new record.

Recession Ending and Stocks Sell in May and Go Away? / Economics / Recession 2008 - 2010

By: John_Mauldin

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleSell in May and Go Away?
The End of the Recession?
Is the US Consumer Back?
A Dangerous End Game

The old adage that one should "sell in May and walk away" has been around for years. I mentioned that bromide about this time last year, urging readers to head for the sidelines if they had not already done so. I was also suggesting a strategic retreat in August of 2006 (after which the markets went up 20% before plummeting). In this week's letter we look at the actual data and offer up a fresh viewpoint. Then we turn our eyes to the recent GDP numbers, which were awful, though many took comfort in the apparent rise in consumer spending. Are Americans back to their old ways? It will make for an interesting letter.

Lessons From the Great Depression, Next Great Depression II? / Economics / Great Depression II

By: Submissions

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticlePhill Tomlinson writes: A great deal can be learnt through history. In a practical sense its completely useless, as it merely just documents past events, but past events can help explain current and possible future events. If you can never get to grips with a subject matter it is best to look at history to try and to identify possible similarities. I have taken some quotes from a historical book and I think a lot of the quotes below could be said of the current situation we find ourselves in.

Real Economy Continues to Sink Despite Economic Stimulus and Bear Market Rally / Economics / Recession 2008 - 2010

By: Mike_Whitney

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe economy continued to shrink in the first quarter of 2009 at an annual pace of 6.1 percent, making it the worst recession in more than 50 years. Gross Domestic Product slipped into negative territory from January to March for back-to-back quarters of negative 6 percent growth. The news of falling GDP was preceded on Tuesday by a dismal housing report which showed that housing prices have continued their historic downward plunge with only modest improvement. Since their peak in July 2006, housing prices have dropped 31 percent, falling 18.6 percent in the last year alone. The rate of decline has decelerated slightly but--on their present trajectory--prices are on target to tumble 45 to 50 percent from their 2006 highs. Another 20 percent loss in home equity means another $4 trillion loss for US homeowners.

A person may possess wealth i.e. exchangeable value; if, however, he does not possess the power of producing objects of more value than he consumes, he will become poorer. A person may be poor, if he, however possesses the power of producing a larger amount of valuable articles than he consumes, he becomes rich.

The State of the U.S. Consumer / Economics / Recession 2008 - 2010

By: Andy_Sutton

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThis week’s surprise Consumer Confidence report gives us yet another reason to take a step back and survey the landscape. Much of the recent focus has deservedly been on unemployment while little focus has been given to other aspects of the consumer and more importantly, the overall state of the consumer’s mind. Clearly there are several enigmas manifesting themselves in both confidence and spending patterns. This week we’ll take a closer look at some of these issues, and probably generate quite a bit of debate as well.
