By: Mike_Whitney

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis Article"The Winter of 2008-2009 will prove to be the winter of global economic discontent that marks the rejection of the flawed ideology that unregulated global financial markets promote financial innovation, market efficiency, unhampered growth and endless prosperity while mitigating risk by spreading it system wide."

Keynesian Economics- Revenge of the Barbarous Relic / Economics / Deflation

By: Kurt_Kasun

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMarc Faber's latest report written on November 1 was titled “Why Market Interventions by Governments worsen Economic and Financial Conditions!” I might have called it "Vengeance of the Barbarous Relic". John Maynard Keynes granted gold with this pejorative, giving license to governments to intervene, print, and distort to their heart's content. In the long run we are all dead...right? Wrong! The long run is now and the chickens are coming home to roost.

UK Real Retail Sales Deflationary Trend Continues / Economics / UK Economy

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe official monthly retail sales data again demonstrated the inbuilt trend inaccuracy by reporting just a 0.1% drop for October 2008, up 2% on the year and in the face of the UK economy slumping fast into recession. Whilst the mainstream media mistakenly jumps on the smaller than expected decline, I refer readers to the two graphs below, one of the official retail sales data and the second of the inflation indexed and trend adjusted retail sales which more accurately reflects the current true state of distressed retailers than the month to month gyrations of official data that proves so confusing to mainstream market watchers.

Hyperinflation to Follow Deflationary Debt Unwind / Economics / Stagflation

By: Eric_deCarbonnel

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn the investor community, there currently exists the belief that hyperinflation is impossible because of the deflationary debt unwind now underway. However, this logic is based on the flawed assumption that the money supply is the only important factor when determining inflation or deflation. This ignores the fact that for nations heavily dependent on foreign imports, like the US and Iceland, the purchasing power of the currency is the most important determinant of inflation/deflation.

Falling Consumer Prices Good or Bad News for Consumers? / Economics / Inflation

By: Paul_L_Kasriel

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThursday the BLS reported that the Consumer Price Index (CPI) fell by 1.0% both seasonally adjusted as well as unadjusted. On an unadjusted basis, this was the largest monthly decline in the CPI since January 1938 (see Chart 1). Some journalists and some economists are exclaiming that these falling consumer prices are "good" for consumers. Are they?

Explanation of the Price Effects of Inflation and Deflation / Economics / Inflation

By: EWI

The U.S. Labor Department reported a 1 percent drop in the consumer price index for October 2008. The drop marked the largest decline in 61 years, and it was the first decline in that measure in nearly a quarter of a century. The 1 percent drop was twice as large as many mainstream analysts had forecast. Such a large decline in consumer prices is forcing U.S. policymakers to rethink the possibility of deflation in America. For more on deflation, we turn to Robert Prechter, the man who literally wrote a book on how to survive it.

China's Stimulus Package Suggests Good Long-term Economic Prospects / Economics / China Economy

By: John_Browne

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAs Peter Schiff and I have long warned, America's reliance on borrowing and consumption to fuel economic activity would result in the wholesale destruction of national wealth. Until recently, the dissipation was largely invisible to most consumers. However, the ongoing plunge in real estate and equity prices and newly released statistics concerning retail sales, consumer confidence and employment have now made it plain to most Americans that their own wealth has been seriously, and perhaps permanently, degraded. In response, they are now hoarding cash and reevaluating their spending habits.

The Road to Financial Ruin: Unrestrained Government Spending / Economics / US Debt

By: Axel_Merk

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhen just about all economists agree, should we rejoice or be scared? During the Weimar Republic, economists at the Reichsbank argued that printing money to finance a war was “exogenous” to the economy and thus not inflationary. Hyperinflation in the ensuing years proved them wrong. We tend to think we are so much smarter today. Economists know how to run regression models; in the absence of a historic precedent, some economists know how to draw shifting supply and demand curves. But common sense seems to be missing in the toolbox of all but a few.

Reasons for Economic Optimism Despite G20 Summit Failure / Economics / Global Economy

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMartin Hutchinson writes: The gathering of 20 largest industrial countries in Washington this past weekend – billed as a crucial G20 summit – turned out to be a rather dull scrum.

There were promises of a coordinated approach to bank regulation, additional economic stimulus packages, and increased allocations for the International Monetary Fund (IMF) –one of the five “ aftershock-investing ” opportunities Money Morning has counseled readers to watch for. But none of the G20 meeting proposals seemed even remotely likely to make a difference in the here and now.

Spreading Global Recession Signals Caution for Investors / Economics / Recession 2008 - 2010

G20 Central Banks Unite to Fight Economic Depression / Economics / Economic Depression

By: Gary_Dorsch

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleCan Central Bankers Prevent the Great Depression?

Amid the worst financial crisis and market meltdowns since the 1930's, the world's top-20 central bankers and finance ministers are busy at work, inflating the world's money supply, slashing lending rates, and crafting stimulus packages, in order to prevent a normal recession from morphing into a Great Depression. The ECB has cut interest rates by 100-basis points to 3.25% since early October, and is telegraphing another 50 basis point cut at the next policy meeting in December.

Yields on 10-year notes touched the lowest in more than three weeks as a slumping economy raised the specter of deflation. Oil reached a 22-month low.

UK Inflation CPI Falls Sharply as Economy Heads for Deflation / Economics / US Economy

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleUK inflation as measured by the CPI slumped by the largest amount since the series began in 1997, falling from 5.2% to 4.5%. This follows hard on the heels of the Bank of England's panic 1.5% interest rate cut earlier in the month which was accompanied by BOE statements that UK economy would contract by 2% GDP during 2009, that puts the UK on target to experience a worse recession than that of the early 1990's as Gordon Browns boom turns to bust. The RPI measure which the BoE also warned was heading towards deflation i.e. a negative RPI during 2009 fell sharply from 5% to 4.2%.

Worse than the Great Depression? / Economics / Economic Depression

By: Stephen_Lendman

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIt's a minority but growing view, including from 86-year old former Goldman Sachs chairman, John Whitehead, at the November 12 Reuters Global Finance Summit in New York. As disturbing evidence mounts, he said: "I think it would be worse than the depression. We're talking about reducing the credit of the United States of America, which is the backbone of the economic system. I see nothing but large increases in the deficit, all of which are serving to decrease the credit standing of America.

Goldilocks Economy Turns into the Humpty Dumpty Economy / Economics / Recession 2008 - 2010

By: Peter_Schiff

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleBefore the current economic crisis became apparent to all, the most popular fable used to describe America's uncanny economic resiliency was the story of Goldilocks. It was argued that our economy was skipping down a sunny path of moderate growth, low inflation and rising asset prices. However, a much better parable for our economy over the last decade would have been the story of Humpty Dumpty: a bloated, fragile shell perched on the top of a dangerously high stone wall.
