What if Conventional Wisdom On Economic Growth and Consumer Spending Is Wrong? / Economics / US Economy

By: Tim_Iacono

There it was, right in the middle of the front page of yesterday's Wall Street Journal about four paragraphs down in the lead story titled " Decline in Home Prices Accelerates " - more evidence that the economy as we know it could be fundamentally flawed, yet you'd never get a hint of that even from reading one of the the world's finest business publication.

US Money Supply Growth? Look to China / Economics / Money Supply

Like the earmark hidden so deep inside a new appropriations bill committee report that it takes a magnifying glass to find, so too the lengths we apparently need to go in figuring out the degree of money supply growth in the US.

But is it really such a mystery?

Bernanke's Mission Impossible- To Boost the Economy To Win the Election / Economics / US Economy

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleBen Bernanke's Mission Impossible is to deliver a favorable economic climate conducive towards a Republican election victory in November 2008,

The mission requires the US Fed to -

  • abandon the defense of the dollar,
  • to abandon the fight against inflation,
  • to prop up the ailing banking system by as much money as is required (money supply),

America Saves Week Feb 24th to March 2nd - Build Wealth Not Debt! / Economics / US Debt

By: Wall_Street_Weather

While paging through the local paper yesterday, I spotted a bank ad touting a 48 month Certificate of Deposit for 3.5% APY. The barely legible print at the bottom of the ad said that the CD requires a $10,000 minimum of new money to the bank. Wow, I bet people will be standing in line for the bank to open this morning.

US Economic Boom and Busts / Economics / US Economy

By: Gerard_Jackson

The US Economy: Been there before - There are times when in order to find out where we are we need to discover how we got there. And this is certainly the case with economies, and the US economy is no exception. This is why economic lessons are vitally important and why they need to be constantly aired lest the public be led astray by demagogues and economic illiterates. (Think Obama and Hillary Clinton). One of the most important lessons that was largely disregarded in the 1990s is that booms are always followed by busts. (The dishonest US mainstream media's response to this fact is to blame recessions on Republicans and always credit Democrats with the good times).

US Fed's Up Beat Forecasts on Pessimistic Economic Growth Outlook / Economics / US Economy

By: John_Mauldin

  • Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe Muddle Through Fed
  • Risks to the Downside
  • Consumers Gone Wild
  • Leaving the Ballpark After All these Years

This week the Fed offered us their forecasts for 2008-10 for the economy, inflation and employment. We will look at some of the details which I think will be of interest. Then we glance at some data on the savings rate which suggests consumer spending may be in for more of a challenge than many think. There is a lot of ground to cover.

Inflation: America 's Greatest Export / Economics / US Economy

By: Peter_Schiff

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleUnfortunately one of the few things still made in America is inflation. In fact, it now ranks as our greatest export. 

A significant by-product of the current global economic system, wherein Americans spend money they do not earn to buy foreign products that they do not make, is that trillions of dollars are now parked in foreign banks just looking for somewhere to go.

Inflation- The Elephant in the Room / Economics / Inflation

But right now, the real five-ton elephant in the room is inflation. And no one at the Federal Reserve really seems to want to confront it!

Saving as the Source of Most Spending and the Implications for the 'Economic Stimulus Package' / Economics / US Economy

By: Gerard_Jackson

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleStanding Keynesian GDP on its head: Saving Not Consumption as the Main Source of Spending - Professor George Reisman writes: According to the prevailing Keynesian dogma, consumption is the main form of spending in the economic system, while saving is mere non-spending and thus a 'leakage' from the spending stream. This dogma underlies much of government economic policy in the United States, including the so-called economic stimulus package that has just been enacted. In this article, I prove, to the contrary, that consumption is not the main form of spending in the economic system and that the source of most spending is, in fact, saving. I prove my claims by starting with the very formulations of the expenditure aggregates presented by the Keynesian doctrine itself.

Bernanke's State of the US Economy Speech: "You are all Dead Ducks!" / Economics / US Economy

By: Mike_Whitney

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleEven veteran Fed-watchers were caught off-guard by Chairman Bernanke's performance before the Senate Banking Committee on Thursday. Bernanke was expected to make routine comments on the state of the economy but, instead, delivered a 45 minute sermon detailing the afflictions of the foundering financial system. The Senate chamber was stone-silent throughout. The gravity of the situation is finally beginning to sink in.

US Recession Debate Turns Toward Inflation / Economics / Stagflation

By: Michael_Pento

The debate over the "R" word has been the focus on Wall St. for months on end. This obsession over whether the degree of the economic slowdown will in fact reach the technical definition of recession (2 consecutive quarters of negative GDP) is unproductive for the average investor. What investors need to know is that while economic growth is clearly weak, inflation is rising and that the current value of the stock market has not priced this in. Meanwhile, the Fed's response to this crisis is causing great harm to investors and could lead to hyperinflation in the long term.

Economic Stimulus Packages Overdosing Could Ignite Hyperinflation / Economics / Stagflation

By: Peter_Schiff

In perhaps one of biggest ironies to ever to come out of Washington, this week Congress simultaneously pilloried major league baseball players for using artificial stimulants to pump up their performance while passing legislation to do just that to the national economy. Am I the only one laughing?

Financial Destiny of United States is in China's Hands / Economics / US Economy

By: Professor_Emeritus

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleUncle Sam is Crying "Uncle" - Tertium datur - People tend to think in terms of black-and-white. Many of my correspondents think that either hyperinflation or deflation is in store for the dollar; tertium non datur (no third possibility given). I would say tertium datur . The third possibility is a hybrid of hyperinflation and deflation. I described this scenario in my previous article “Opening the Mint to Gold and Silver”. It is possible, even probable, that we shall witness collapsing world trade and collapsing world employment together with competitive currency devaluations, as the three superpowers compete in trying to corner gold. The lure of gold is very strong. “There is no fever like gold fever” and, contrary to conventional wisdom, governments are especially susceptible.

Are Interest Rates Driving the Economy into Recession? / Economics / Austrailia

By: Gerard_Jackson

Interest rates are rising and it looks as if the Rudd Government is beginning to panic, a sign of which was Treasurer Wayne Swan's silly threat to banks not to be greedy by raising interest rates. This would be funny if it were not so serious. It is abundantly clear that our Treasurer is at a complete loss to understand what is really happening with interest rates. Unfortunately for Australia the same can be said about our economic pundits.

The Greatest Danger to the US Economy is the Fed / Economics / US Interest Rates

By: Gerard_Jackson

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAs I have said a number of times, the real economic problem that confronts the world today -- and that includes the US -- is lousy economics. Bernanke has made it clear that he follows fallacious line that it is the role of central banks to manipulate interest rates. We now have Charles Plosser, Philadelphia Fed President, stating that Bernanke's "aggressive rate cuts" will put the US on a growth trend of about 2.7 per cent by 2009. However, he claims that "if something can tip us into recession, the housing market is the biggest risk".

US Recession - Massive Credit Crunch Beating US Government and Fed Flood of Liqudity / Economics / Recession

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMike Larson writes: I'm no longer a huge football fan, and I'm not much of a political junkie, either. But this past week's action really got my blood pumping.

The Patriots and Giants slugged things out for four long quarters. Deep passes into the secondary. Crushing sacks in the backfield. Power running and smashmouth blocking. It was a great game up until the bitter end.
