Ring-Fence the Bad Assets- Re-Arranging the Deck Chairs on the Titanic? / Economics / US Economy

By: Paul_L_Kasriel

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleYesterday I expressed my opinion on the lack of economic substance of allowing financial institutions to value the assets on their books at historical cost or whatever they so desire ( Mark It as You Choose, but Is Enough Cash Coming In? ). Today, yet another "costless" solution to the bad-asset problem is being put forth in the Financial Times - quarantine the bad apples from the good ( Wall St banks seek to ring-fence bad assets ).

No Economic Depression on the Horizon ... / Economics / US Economy

By: Money_and_Markets

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleLarry Edelson writes: Last week I told you that the mortgage crisis is not over. This week, the message I want you to come away with is that the mortgage and credit crisis do not present a doomsday scenario.

Don't misunderstand — I am not cavalier about the financial crisis the U.S. is going through. It is scary stuff. Probably the worst crisis this country has seen since the Great Depression.

At the Gates of Recession / Economics / Recession

By: Regent_Markets

High yield spreads remain stubbornly high despite dramatic interventions from UK and US central banks. Banks are hording cash due to mistrust and fear over who will make the next big write down. Nationwide, the UK's largest building society, put up the rates on some mortgages despite there being a reasonable probability of a rate cut on the 10th of April.

Paulson's Civic Robbery To Finance Hyper Inflation / Economics / Market Manipulation

By: John_Browne

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMonday, Treasury Secretary Hank Paulson announced the laying of the government's foundation stone for the next big financial bubble, heralding an era of hyperinflation and probable further runs on the U.S. dollar.

Of course, like most politics, there is usually a ‘good' reason and a ‘real' reason for actions. Today's announcement was no exception.

Inflation, Gold and the Government / Economics / Inflation

By: David_Petch

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleInflation as defined by Ludwig von Mises, “Inflation is defined as monetary expansion through introduction of physical fiat currency or issuance of credit”.

Printing money has a delayed effect to hit the system; it will be circulating in the system and travel through a series of bubbles. The end game for inflationary cycles results from excessive money chasing commodities. The phenomenon of inverse relationships between bull markets in broad market indices and commodities is well known…commodity prices decline to such low levels that supplies become critical, thereby driving up prices. An example of delays in pricing hitting the consumer lies in examination of Producers Pricing Index (PPI) and the Consumers Pricing Index (CCI).

Further Weakness in the US Economy / Economics / US Economy

By: Paul_J_Nolte

The worst quarter since the first half of 2002 will be in the books at the close today, and not a day too soon. The news of the week included still poor housing data, although a few glimmers of hope in that the declines were less than originally estimated. Too were the refi and new purchase activity, reported by Mortgage Bankers Association, jumped as mortgages rates moved modestly lower. This week will be loaded with the usual first week data, including employment, which will likely show another contraction in payrolls, further fueling those sitting on the fence that we are indeed in a recession.

Bail me out Bernanke / Economics / Credit Crisis 2008

By: Peter_Schiff

Now that the Fed and the Treasury Department have clumsily come to the rescue of the financial titans of Wall Street, it is now politically dangerous to resist similar pleas from just about everybody else. Populism is emerging as a dominant theme is this election year, and with so much largesse showered on Bear Stearns and JP Morgan Chase, politicians are demanding even more generous terms for consumers. In Washington , it seems that two wrongs apparently make a right. Another downside to corporate bailouts is that they provide the critics of free market capitalism with plenty of excuses to weigh down American economic vitality with even more unnecessary regulation.

Three Lessons from the Great Depression / Economics / Economic Depression

By: Money_and_Markets

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article Sean Brodrick writes: A huge bull market in commodities takes a downturn. Equities are getting clobbered. The nation is groaning under insurmountable debts after the banks throw caution to the wind.

It's an election year, and some people say the market is over-regulated — others that it's not regulated enough. All the while, weather is making headlines — in fact, some people believe the weather could herald the beginning of the end.

New Economic and Financial System to Arise from the Credit Crisis Ashes / Economics / Credit Crisis 2008

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThis week I take great pride and pleasure in being able to bring you a recent letter from my very good friend Peter Bernstein. I asked him to let me publish this, as I think this is one of the more important, thought-provoking pieces I have read in a very long time. I am grateful for that permission, as you will be when you read this. I would take the time to read it through several times. Read this paragraph from the beginning of the letter to get an idea of the thought path down which Peter is going to take us:

Savings and the US Economy- Fallacy of Including Home Ownership in Savings / Economics / US Economy

By: Gerard_Jackson

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleA while ago David Malpass, financial writer and chief economist at Bear Stearns, (and I do mean that Bear Stearns) argued that US savings are under reported because they exclude "cash flow improvements from realized gains on equities, houses, and mortgage refinancing." Now I am not referring to Malpass as a means to take a swipe at Bear Stearns and the quality of its advisors: that's the market's job. What Malpass did was to inadvertently draw attention to the confusion that reigns among the economic commentariat with respect to the nature of saving and its critical importance for economic welfare.

Wall St. Stocks Rally on Philly Fed US Economic Outlook / Economics / US Economy

By: Paul_L_Kasriel

"NEW YORK, March 20 (Reuters) - U.S. stocks jumped on Thursday, pushing the Dow briefly up more than 1 percent, as a reading on factory activity in the mid-Atlantic region fell by less than analysts' had forecast, improving views on the U.S. economic outlook."

Tell me. On what basis did "analysts" have to predict what the Philly Fed March factory activity headline would be? For that matter, on what basis do "analysts" have for predicting what weekly initial jobless claims will be.

UK Inflation CPI Rises to 2.5% for 2009 UK Election? / Economics / Inflation

By: Nadeem_Walayat

UK Inflation as measured by the CPI Index rose to 2.5% for February, however the rise was wholly due to a change in the way the index is calculated without which the CPI would probably have remained unchanged. The more accepted RPI inflation index remained unchanged at 4.1%. Therefore the artificial boost to the CPI suggests the intention for the creation of a spike in UK CPI inflation now which will leave the indices in 12 months time, thus resulting in a drop in CPI inflation and hence have the prospects for interest rate cuts in the lead up to the summer of 2009, which could present Gordon Brown with an ideal opportunity to go to the polls.

The Dual Paradigms Of Today's Stagflation and Deflation Macro Economic Conditions  / Economics / Stagflation

By: Captain_Hook

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMany are now categorizing current macro economic conditions as being an instance of stagflation . And while current circumstances definitely appear to be so, in my opinion one needs to go past the definition of stagflation to capture the essence of macro conditions at present, because this is not your father's economy. In the last inflation cycle witnessed in the 70's, wages were growing and people had savings, and we still had the disinflation period this sponsored up until millenniums turn to live through.

US Economy Hit by Monetary Storm / Economics / Recession

By: Gerard_Jackson

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe current monetary crisis has brought forth an avalanche of opinions on what President Bush and the Fed need to do to arrest the dollar's decline and prevent a recession. But what really needs to be done? The quarterly Anderson Forecast by the University of California at Los Angeles is betting that there will not be a recession, though there will be a significant downturn in the rate of growth. Of course, there is the usual caveat that if consumers reduce their purchases of big-ticket items this could bring on a recession.

Monopoly Goes Live…with an Inflationary Twist / Economics / Money Supply
