Deflation Scare the Perfect Camouflage for Inflationary Money Printing / Economics / Stagflation

By: Chris_Galakoutis

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIt is said the market can sniff out prospective problems and price itself accordingly. If so, then someone needs to get this dog some nasal spray, lickedy-split! The deflation scare currently hovering over the entire market, particularly in the metals and commodities sectors, has been brutal. But the key question today is whether this “scare” will evolve into a genuine deflation threat to the US and the world?

Reduced Gasoline Prices Provide Economic Relief, But May Not Change Consumer Outlook / Economics / US Economy

By: Joseph_Brusuelas

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleGasoline prices have seen a steep decline over the past three months. Since hitting a peak on July 20, the national average price for a gallon of gasoline has declined 52 cents, which should inject approximately $120 to $130 billion into the pocketbooks of consumers, with more expected on the way.

U.S. Worsening Economic Outlook / Economics / US Economy

By: Michael_J_Panzner

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThis morning, the Federal Reserve Bank of Philadelphia announced that its general economic index for October fell from 3.8 in September to a much worse-than-forecast minus 37.5, the lowest level in nearly two decades. That follows yesterday's news that the Federal Reserve Bank of New York's general economic index declined to a record low of minus 24.6, also below expectations. Together with another regularly updated index, the Richmond Federal Reserve Bank's manufacturing sector activity survey (October data has not yet been released), these indicators seem to make it clear that the economic outlook remains bleak.

U.S. Economy Still on Life Support / Economics / US Economy

By: John_Browne

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOn Monday October 13th , the Dow took the fifth biggest upward leap (in percentage terms) in its history and, most notably, since the 1930's.  It appeared that Paulson and his fellow G-7 finance ministers had solved the credit crisis.  Despite the fact that G-7 taxpayers will be stuck with $3.5 trillion of liabilities to support their governments' bailout plans, the stock markets nevertheless bustled with euphoria.  The next day, reality dawned once again, and all markets closed down.

Credit Crisis Bailouts Will Prevent Recession But Not Recession / Economics / Recession 2008 - 2010

By: Hans_Wagner

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe rescue plan is now law. You might be wondering how this $700 (actually $850 billion) rescue plan will help improve the economy and help you beat the market. The credit markets remain tight and they are having repercussions across the US economy and throughout the world. Now that the government has arrived to help, will it work?

UK Unemployment Soars by 10%, Forecast to Rise to 2.5 million / Economics / UK Economy

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleUK unemployment as measured by the labour market survey surged to 1.79 million, up 164,000 for the quarter to July 2008, which clearly does not take into account the economic meltdown since August 08, nor the subsequent financial sector crash that witnessed bank after bank go bust and falling into the arms of the state or state sponsored rescue packages both of which are resulting in huge job losses in the financial sector.

The U.S. Housing Market Economic Double Negative Feedback Loop / Economics / Recession 2008 - 2010

By: Andrew_Butter

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticlePerhaps the time for self-delusion is passed. The grand new plan, just replaced the $700 billion plan, that replaced the $80 billion plan to bail out AIG, that replaced the Bear Stearns bailout which was just pocket change.

Forgive me for being skittish but it seems like every time you blink the number goes up by a factor of ten. The way it looks now is that combined USA , Europe and UK , the damage could easily be $7 trillion.

How Central Banks Destabilized the World's Economies / Economics / Liquidity Bubble

By: Gerard_Jackson

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe crisis that America finds itself in is not political in origin nor can it be laid at the feet of any individual or party. The whole world, including Europe, is experiencing a massive monetary disruption. Moreover, it is not the first time that the world has been shaken by a financial crisis. It happened in 1824 and it happened again after WW I. What is depressing is that though these crises have but one single cause today' s central bankers and legions of economists find themselves utterly clueless, readily taking as a causes those data which are in fact symptoms of a very deep monetary disorder.

Economic Forecasts and Analysis For U.S. Financial Markets (Oct 13-17) / Economics / US Economy

By: Joseph_Brusuelas

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe week of October 13-17 will see perhaps the most important week of macroeconomic data and Fed talk of the year. The weekend of Oct 10-12 will see the G-7 meeting in Washington where finance ministers will attempt to formulate a common policy to stem the damage to global financial markets. We expect them to consider guaranteeing all term lending at the meeting. The statements of Fed Chair Bernanke and ECB President Trichet can be expected to support whatever important decisions are arrived at the G-7 meeting.

How to Save the U.S. Economy / Economics / Recession 2008 - 2010

By: Richard_C_Cook

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe crashing stock market has given its verdict. The financial rescue plan currently being implemented by the U.S. Treasury Department and the Federal Reserve System will fail to revitalize the producing economy, even with continued interest rate cuts. This is because the banking system is essentially a supply-side, trickle-down mechanism with a currency based on a pyramid of bank lending and debt. All the current plans being suggested by economists and others to save the financial system by varying degrees of tinkering are useless. Similarly useless is the pumping in of credit or liquidity by Treasury or the Federal Reserve because it is no more than new debt to roll over old debt.

Recession Signals: Industrial Production September Decline / Economics / Recession

By: Joseph_Brusuelas

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhile, the service sector does account for well over 80% of overall economic activity, industrial production often provides a very timely indicator implying the end of the business cycle and the onset of a recession. The pro-cyclical nature of the report provides a well-timed and sensitive indicator of the current rate of growth in overall output.

America's Financial Apocalypse Economists Need to Sit Down and Shut Up / Economics / Economic Depression

By: Mike_Stathis

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleI'm really sick and tired of these economists out there who continue to claim that America will not enter a depression. These are the same bozos that have yet to acknowledge the fact that the U.S. is in a recession and has been for several months now. In fact, as I have previously mentioned, I can make a very strong case that the U.S. has been in the early stages of a silent, modest depression for at least two years; at the very least a protracted recession masked by credit. After the appropriate adjustments have been made for GDP, the U.S. economy has had no more than 3 to 4 quarters of GDP growth since 2005.
