US Recession Began in Mid-2012 / Economics / Recession 2013

By: Bloomberg

Lakshman Achuthan, co-founder of the Economic Cycle Research Institute, told Tom Keene and Sara Eisen on "Bloomberg Surveillance" this morning that a U.S. recession "began around the middle of last year.

Achuthan said, "the entire West is in the yo-yo years. They have all been having growth stair stepping down. It is very weak growth with higher cycle volatility which will give you more frequent recessions."

Can Japan's Bernanke Revive Japanese Econcomy With Another Round of "Easy Money"? / Economics / Japan Economy

Keith Fitz-Gerald writes: I think I hear the sounds of helicopter engines warming up in Tokyo.

Newly elected 2nd time Prime Minister Shinzo Abe has officially tapped Haruhiko Kuroda as the next head of the Bank of Japan and the financial markets here seem quite pleased.

An Infinite Amount of Money, Et Tu, Italy? / Economics / Inflation

By: John_Mauldin

The three major blocs of the developed world are careening toward a debt-fueled denouement that will play out over years rather than in a single moment. And contrary to some opinion, there is no certain ending. There are multiple paths still available to Europe and especially the US, though admittedly none of them are bright and carefree. There are very few paths available to Japan, as they have skipped too far down the yellow brick road of debt. None of Japan’s remaining paths have good endings. In the US, even as numerous voices declaim on the crisis that awaits if we don’t act, there is seemingly no collective will to actually do anything as yet. Perhaps it will take… a crisis. In Europe, the peripheral countries can already be said to be in crisis.

Banksters Obtuseness, And What Might Be Done About It? / Economics / Banksters

By: Brian_Bloom

The world economy has become moribund. “Money” does not power the economy. It merely acts as grease for the economic wheels. For some reason, the banksters are obtusely refusing to see this. Perhaps they don’t fully understand. Perhaps the lobby groups who are influencing political decisions don’t want them to see/understand. Perhaps they do understand but don’t know what to do about it. Whilst the Long Economic Wave may be bottoming – at least in the US – the next “upswing” will very likely not resemble previous upswings. There has been a chronic dilution of the potency of the forces that drove the Industrial Revolution which commenced in the mid 1700s. In this context, we cannot apply historical thought paradigms to future planning. A new mindset must evolve. The longer it takes for the decision makers to recognise this, the more difficult it is going to become to address the core issues.

Europe, Unemployment and Instability / Economics / Unemployment

By: STRATFOR

The global financial crisis of 2008 has slowly yielded to a global unemployment crisis. This unemployment crisis will, fairly quickly, give way to a political crisis. The crisis involves all three of the major pillars of the global system -- Europe, China and the United States. The level of intensity differs, the political response differs and the relationship to the financial crisis differs. But there is a common element, which is that unemployment is increasingly replacing finance as the central problem of the financial system.

Clues to the Health of the World Economy from Tourism Trends / Economics / Global Economy

By: Andrew_Butter

U.S. Outbound and Dubai-Inbound Compared - Leaving aside the hangover from the debt bubble, not yet even half cured  by the cocktail of QE flavored with the bitter spice of austerity…life goes on.

One way to get a feeling for the pulse of the economy that exists outside of borders, literally, in the stratosphere, or close-by, is to look at how much of that apparently soon-to-be-worthless fiat-money real-people are spending on travel internationally.

Why America Will Be the Next Japan / Economics / US Economy

By: InvestmentContrarian

George Leong writes: The media is harping on about how the U.S. is well on its way to recovery. Well, I don’t agree—the country’s economy is slowing. In the fourth quarter, gross domestic product (GDP) growth based on the second estimate expanded at 0.1%; this is above the -0.1% reading in the first estimate, but nonetheless, it’s below consensus, which estimated the economy would grow 0.5%. I’m not sure how the 0.5% growth was arrived at, but the concerns of the fiscal cliff in the fourth quarter clearly made consumers think twice about spending. Of course, the government also saw its spending curtailed due to the debt limit and pending sequester.

Euro Zone New Record Unemployment, U.S. Personal Income Plummets / Economics / Great Depression II

By: Barry_Grey

Economic statistics released this week reflect a further weakening of the world economy and a further fall in the living standards of the international working class.

Reports on unemployment, manufacturing activity, economic growth and personal income in Europe, China and the United States point to an overall slowdown in economic growth and a rise in unemployment and poverty. They coincide with new moves by the European Union and the Obama administration in the US to slash social spending and public-sector jobs and wages. These measures mark an escalation of the class-war policies that have fueled the economic slump and already brought untold suffering to hundreds of millions of workers.

Is the West About to Accelerate Away From the Rest? / Economics / Global Economy

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Many academics such as Niall Ferguson have been publishing books and broadcasting TV series promoting the rise of China and the threat it poses to a decaying West whereas in my opinion far from the west being in decline it has yet to even peak. That coupled with the probability that China rather than presenting a threat to the west, is likely approaching significant hurdles to future growth as evidenced by the fact that academics such as Niall Ferguson are making TV programmes for mass media audiences, much as the tek stocks were becoming all the rage in the mainstream media just before they went bust.

Deflation is Far From Over - Key Economic Index Turns South / Economics / Deflation

By: EWI

The federal government defines the Producer Price Index (PPI) as "the average change over time in the selling prices received by domestic producers for their output."

With help from the Federal Reserve's massive inflationary policies, the PPI has climbed even as the economy began to fall in 2008-09.

Degrowth, Limits To Economic Growth And The Real World / Economics / Economic Theory

By: Andrew_McKillop

40 YEARS OF DEGROWTH
More than 40 years ago, in 1972, the MIT researcher Dennis Meadows and his team published "Limits to Growth", a report paid for by the Club of Rome. The study created a massive wave of interest, in part due to "environmentalism" only having just begun as a major theme, at that time, marked by the first UN conference on the environment, in Stockholm, the same year.

Is Inflation the Legacy of the Federal Reserve? / Economics / Inflation

By: Mike_Shedlock

In testimony to Congress on February 27, Bernanke bragged that inflation under his and Greenspan's watch was a mere 2% a year.

Of course Bernanke ignored a housing boom and bust. He also ignored a a dotcom boon and bust, a global financial crisis, numerous bank bailouts, and a policy of "too big to fail" that is now "even bigger".

Nobody was really shocked when Venezuela devalued the bolivar earlier this month from 4.3 to the dollar to 6.3.

When it comes to the currency wars, massive devaluations are simply one of the keys to this "race to the bottom" strategy.

Ignore the Keynesian Axis of Evil / Economics / Economic Theory

By: William_Anderson

Your points in the November 29 column on Paul Krugman and the Austrians makes good points, and I would like to make a few comments of my own.

I do believe that when one makes apocalyptic comments, one gets what he deserves if the predictions don't pan out. As you said, that does not mean the Austrians are wrong regarding money and inflation, but expansions of money, especially in the way that the Fed has gone about doing so, are going to have a number of effects, rising consumer prices being only one of them.

New Economic Data Reveals More Bad News for the Eurozone / Economics / Euro-Zone

By: InvestmentContrarian

Sasha Cekerevac writes: One of the biggest detriments to global economic growth has been the weak eurozone region. Not only has economic growth been dismal within the eurozone area, but the level of financial instability over the past few years has left investors and businesses uncertain about the future.

While there was some indication that economic growth might have been rebounding within the eurozone, new data point to a much weaker underlying economy than previously thought.

The Keynesian Economic Depression / Economics / Great Depression II

By: John_Mauldin

In today’s Outside the Box, Scott Minerd, chief investment officer of Guggenheim Funds, regales us with the not-always-happy history of Keynesian economics – we did what he said when we had to, but not always when we should have. Shoving fiscal and monetary stimulus down the throat of a recession is well and good, but how about the part where we’re supposed to be fiscally conservative during boom times? “What, raise taxes? No thank you!”

The upshot, as Minerd reminds us, is that “As a result of the constant fiscal support without the tax increases, businesses and households became comfortable operating with continuously higher leverage ratios. The conventional wisdom was that this government backstop could never be exhausted.” Today we are testing that premise to the limit, and not only in the US.

Until recently, the recovery from the 2008 financial crisis and meltdown has been in stealth mode all the way, much of the country either unaware of the progress - or in denial that it was happening.

That’s even been true of investors, whose success depends so much on being able to separate the facts and reality from the static and noise.

Lately there’s been a lot of talk regarding currency wars. Let’s take a look at why competitive currency devaluations – currency wars – won’t accomplish what’s intended and why we’re going to have to see increasing U.S. protectionism (subsidies, tariffs etc.) regarding global trade.

Currency War - when countries around the world start competing (competitive devaluation) to make their currency cheaper than everyone else’s as a way to boost trade.
