Mature Capitalist Economies Trend Towards Stagnation Triggering Financial Innovations / Economics / Economic Theory

By: Mike_Whitney

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleBritish economist John Maynard Keynes, believed in capitalism, but he was also sharply critical of its structural flaws. He summed it up succinctly like this: "Our analysis shows... that long-run development is not inherent in the capitalist economy. Thus, specific 'development factors' are required to sustain a long-run upward movement."

The Most Redeeming Feature of Capitalism is Failure / Economics / Economic Theory

By: Mike_Shedlock

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThere is an interesting interview in Barron's with two hedge fund managers called Shorting the Economic Recovery.

The fund managers who correctly predicted the housing collapse and the rise in gold, now predict the economy's next leg down. The second theme in the article is on capitalism, fractional reserve lending and what the government should have done.

Does Economics Deserve a Nobel Prize? / Economics / Economic Theory

By: Global_Research

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMichael Hudson writes: Reality & Relevance rather than "Purity" & Elegance are the Burning Issues in Economics Today.

It is bad enough that the field of psychology has for so long been a non-social science, viewing the motive forces of personality as deriving from internal psychic experiences rather than from man's interaction with his social setting. Similarly in the field of economics: since its "utilitarian" revolution about a century ago, this discipline has also abandoned its analysis of the objective world and its political, economic productive relations in favor of more introverted, utilitarian and welfare-oriented norms. Moral speculations concerning mathematical psychics have come to displace the once-social science of political economy.

The Economic of Bethlehem, Remembering the Inn Keeper / Economics / Economic Theory

By: LewRockwell

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAt the heart of the Christmas story rests some important lessons concerning free enterprise, government, and the role of wealth in society.

Let’s begin with one of the most famous phrases: "There’s no room at the inn." This phrase is often invoked as if it were a cruel and heartless dismissal of the tired travelers Joseph and Mary. Many renditions of the story conjure up images of the couple going from inn to inn only to have the owner barking at them to go away and slamming the door.

Krugman Falls into the Keynesian National Income Accounting Trap / Economics / Economic Theory

By: Robert_Murphy

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIt's one thing to criticize Paul Krugman for his views on Austrian economics, but only a brave soul would have the temerity to question Krugman's discussion of the Keynesian approach to international trade, right? Since Krugman is the world's most famous living Keynesian, and he won the Nobel (Memorial) Prize for his work on trade theory, accusing him of a basic error on this score would be akin to telling Madonna she knows nothing of pop music.

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleNiall Ferguson is an academic hotshot. He is a professor at both Harvard University and the Harvard Business School. This is unique.

He is also on target about what happened to the American economy in 2009. This is simply astounding.

Government Socialist Intervention and the Distortion of Capital / Economics / Economic Theory

By: Frederic_Bastiat

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn all times, but more especially of late years, attempts have been made to extend wealth by the extension of credit.

I believe it is no exaggeration to say, that since the revolution of February, the Parisian presses have issued more than 10,000 pamphlets, crying up this solution of the social problem.

Productive Debt versus Unproductive Debt / Economics / Economic Theory

By: Douglas_French

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe credit crunch continues, with businesses large and small finding that their bankers remain exceedingly stingy in the wake of the 2008 financial debacle. "We need to see banks making more loans to their business customers," Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) Chairwoman Sheila Bair told reporters recently after the FDIC released figures showing that the amount of loans outstanding in the nation's banks fell $210.4 billion in the third quarter of 2008. That is the largest quarterly decline since the FDIC began tracking loans in 1984.

Guide to Keynes's Dangerous and Destructive Economic Theory / Economics / Economic Theory

By: David_Gordon

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDefenders of Keynes, such as the recent convert Bruce Bartlett, often claim that he supported capitalism. (Bartlett's The New American Economy has this as a primary theme.) His interventionist measures had as their aim not the replacement of capitalism by socialism or fascism. Rather, it is alleged, Keynes aimed to save the existing order.

How Progressive Capitalism Conquers Mass Poverty / Economics / Economic Theory

By: Henry_Hazlitt

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThroughout history, until about the middle of the 18th century, mass poverty was nearly everywhere the normal condition of man. Then capital accumulation and a series of major inventions ushered in the Industrial Revolution. In spite of occasional setbacks, economic progress became accelerative. Today, in the United States, in Canada, in nearly all of Europe, in Australia, New Zealand, and Japan, mass poverty has been practically eliminated. It has either been conquered or is in process of being conquered by a progressive capitalism. Mass poverty is still found in most of Latin America, most of Asia, and most of Africa.

Economics vs. Politics / Politics / Economic Theory

By: Frank_Chodorov

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIt may be that wary beasts of the forest come around to accepting the hunter's trap as a necessary concomitant of foraging for food. At any rate, the presumably rational human animal has become so inured to political interventions that he cannot think of the making of a living without them; in all his economic calculations his first consideration is, what is the law in the matter? Or, more likely, how can I make use of the law to improve my lot in life?

Housing Market Boom and Bust According to Austrian Economic Theory / Housing-Market / Economic Theory

By: Douglas_French

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIs Housing a Higher-Order Good? While reviewing a book about the financial crisis, a policy analyst of the free-market persuasion pooh-poohed the notion that housing constitutes a long-term project or "higher-order good," insisting that homes are instead a "durable consumer good," and thus he believes that examining the housing meltdown through the lens of Austrian business-cycle theory is illegitimate.

Blame Keynes, Not China for America's Economic Mess / Economics / Economic Theory

By: Gerard_Jackson

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleEvery financial crisis seems to produce its own crop of economic fallacies. The Great Depression gave us the mercantilist fallacy of "demand deficiency" that Keynes dressed up in mathematical garb and convoluted language. Instead of the boom's inevitable bust being treated as a case of "disproportionalities" that needed to be liquidated if the equilibrium was to be restored it was now defined as a simple case of insufficient demand could be easily corrected by increased government spending, i.e., a monetary expansion. (Incidentally, Keynes never argued that this policy would have restored full employment in the 1930s, quite the opposite. Those who argue to the contrary should read T. W. Hutchison's Keynes v. the 'Keynesians'...?, The Institute for Economic Affairs, 1977.)

Can Asset-Price Bubbles Be Harmless? / Economics / Economic Theory

By: Frank_Shostak

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThere is an increasing concern among some commentators that the current, extremely loose monetary policy of the US central bank could fuel another round of asset-price bubbles. This in turn, it is held, could pose a serious danger to the US economy.

Some commentators, such as John Taylor (the inventor of the Taylor rule), are urging the US central-bank policy makers to start considering a tighter stance as soon as possible, in order to prevent a repetition of the Greenspan Fed's interest-rate policy, which kept rates at very low levels for too long. (The Fed lowered its policy rate from 6.5% in December 2000 to 1% by June 2003. The Fed kept the rate at 1% until June 2004).
