UK Economic Crash Follows Housing, Stocks and Sterling Over the Cliff / Economics / Recession 2008 - 2010

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleFriday's long awaited GDP figures are expected to show an estimated GDP contraction of 0.3% for the quarter ending 30th Sept 2008. This follows the official data of zero growth for the 2nd quarter and will officially bring to an end Gordon Brown's near repetitive day in day out mantra chanted at the despatch box in his role as the chancellor of the exchequer for 9 years of having ended the boom and bust cycle. In actual fact all Gordon Brown had succeeded in delivering was a greater boom to be followed by an even more devastating bust. The key point to watch for on Friday is will a revision lower of quarter 2 GDP growth push the UK into a technical recession on the basis of 2 consecutive quarters of negative growth.

Using Leading Economic Indicators to Forecast Economic Recessions / Economics / Recession 2008 - 2010

By: Paul_L_Kasriel

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOn a year-over-year basis, the quarterly average of the index of Leading Economic Indicators (LEI) began contracting in the first quarter of 2007. With the exception of the third quarter of 2007, the quarterly average of the LEI has continued to contract. We alerted our readers that multiple consecutive quarters of year-over-year contractions in the LEI usually were the harbinger of recessions. We had ignored the history of the LEI's recession-predictive powers in the past and were determined not to repeat that mistake.

Economic Recession Forecasting "V" or "U" Shaped? / Economics / Recession 2008 - 2010

By: Paul_L_Kasriel

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleYears ago there was an equity strategist at Bache-Halsey (I said it was years ago) who almost always got it wrong. When he finally was forced to leave "to pursue other interests," clients were furious. The guy was a near-perfect negative indicator. When he said buy, it usually paid off to sell.

You know where this is going. A certain "economist" is forecasting a "V"-shaped economic and stock-market recovery based on a forecast of a "V"-shaped recovery in monetary velocity.

Looming Recession Could have been a Lot Worse / Economics / Recession 2008 - 2010

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMartin Hutchinson writes: The U.S. economy is entering a recession. With each day that passes and each indicator we see, that eventuality becomes more and more clear.

Even so, we can take some real comfort in knowing that we're likely going to avoid the “bottomless pit” of a Great Depression II. A substantial recession with accompanying inflation – roughly along the lines of the downturns of 1974 and 1980-82 – seems the most likely scenario we face.

Fed Attempting To Prevent "Great Depression II" / Economics / Economic Depression

By: Mike_Shedlock

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleBernanke and the Fed have to be miffed over their lack of traction in addressing the credit bubble.

Of course if Bernanke understood simple economics as explained in Impossible To Get Something For Nothing , he would not be doing the silly things he is doing such as running out of letters in his alphabet soup of lending facilities.

The Paradox of Deleveraging Vs Something for Nothing Economics / Economics / Deflation

By: Mike_Shedlock

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleEarlier today, in Keynesian Claptrap From PIMCO I spoke of the ridiculousness of the paradox of thrift . Here two more articles worth your time reading that rebut the seemingly never ending Keynesian Claptrap coming from the likes of Bernanke, Paulson, PIMCO, Roubini, and Krugman.

I make the above statement with one reservation. Nouriel Roubini has called this economic disaster as well as anyone. I commend him for many brilliant calls. However I simply cannot sit back and say nothing about the barrage of bad economic thinking in regards to the solution to this crisis coming from everyone in the group above.

The End of Friedmanite Economics / Economics / Global Financial System

By: Mike_Whitney

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMonday last week, the stock market recorded its biggest one day gain in history on news that the G-7 had settled on a plan to recapitalize the banking system. The Federal Reserve, the European Central Bank (ECB) and the Bank of England (BOE) all agreed to make direct capital injections into "systemically important" banks so they could resume lending and reduce stress in the credit markets. They also decided to insure deposits and to guarantee interbank lending. Do you think that these unprecedented steps will be enough to avert a meltdown of the financial system?

Ghost of John Maynard Keynes- Comments on Economic and Financial Crisis / Economics / Credit Crisis 2008

By: William_R_Thomson

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article1/What is your view of how long the financial system crisis will continue and how much deeper it will it get?

 

One can only hazard a guess by looking at other experiences with banking crises. Japan took about 5 years from the time it started to recapitalize its banks. Sweden and Thailand took a little less time but none were V shaped recoveries.   There is a far greater urgency to efforts now in the US and Europe after a year of dithering and denial but these are still early days and the scale being global is larger and we have the unprecedented scale of the derivative problem. It could still spiral out of control requiring the whole banking sector to be taken into public ownership, but more likely we will have an extended period of recession and subnormal growth covering much of the Obama presidency – assuming he wins.
