Commodities Keel Over as US Heads for Prolonged Recession / Economics / Recession 2008 - 2010

By: Prieur_du_Plessis

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAs oil prices seesawed through the past week, fresh uncertainty about the outlook for the beleaguered financial sector triggered another wave of volatility in financial markets.

With the exception of Friday, crude prices closed each day with a gain or loss of more than 1%, with US stocks doing likewise as sentiment waxed and waned on the back of a barrage of economic and corporate earnings reports. Economic data were mixed, whereas earnings were mostly better than feared. After all the action, the S&P 500 Index closed the week virtually unchanged, posting a small gain of 0.2%.

Silver and Monetary Considerations of Hyperinflation / Economics / Stagflation

By: David_Morgan

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMany of you are probably too young to appreciate the full impact of the hyperinflation in Germany after WW1. It was devastating. This picture shows you the amount of paper that was equal to one silver dollar, or ¾ of one troy ounce of fine silver. After seven years of constantly accelerating inflation, the mark is finally stabilized at the rate of over 4 trillion to a U.S. dollar. The black market rate, however, was an incredible 12 trillion to the dollar at this time. The pre-inflation exchange rate for the mark was by contrast a modest 4.2 to the U.S. dollar. Can anyone say Hyperinflation?

US Jobs Decline for 7th Month, Deep Revisions to Bad Data / Economics / US Economy

By: Mike_Shedlock

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleBefore taking a look at the monthly jobs data, let's take a look at weekly claims. The US Department of Labor is reporting Initial Unemployment Insurance Claims continue to rise.

Seasonally Adjusted
In the week ending July 26, the advance figure for seasonally adjusted initial claims was 448,000, an increase of 44,000 from the previous week's revised figure of 404,000. The 4-week moving average was 393,000, an increase of 11,000 from the previous week's revised average of 382,000.

Bank Bailouts and Weak Economy Ensure Worsening US Budget Deficit / Economics / US Economy

By: Joseph_Brusuelas

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe mid-session review of the federal budget released during the past week saw the White House revise its outlook for the deficit towards nominal highs. The administration is forecasting that the deficit will come in at $389 billion in 2008 and the 2009 deficit should arrive at $482 billion.

The provisional estimate is a snapshot of current spending plans that does not take into account the emerging economic reality. This year seven banks have failed, which may be a grim preview of the forthcoming problems among regional and second-tier banks. The economic slowdown has generated tax receipts through the first nine months of fiscal 2008 equal to 17.9% of GDP, which is less than the 40-year average.

What's the Real Rate of Inflation? / Economics / Inflation

By: HRA_Advisory

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThere is a debate building around inflation. The outcome of this debate will determine the direction of interest rates and credit creation. By extension many commodity prices, especially precious metals and energy, will get direction too.

This past week saw the release of the US CPI reading for June with a “headline” increase of 1.1%. Even the much derided “no heat-no eat” Core Rate that excludes food and fuel was up 0.3% for the month. The 12-month CPI gain in the US is now 5%, and even a sustained pullback in oil prices won't cause consumer inflation to retrench much this year.

Credit Losses Keep Doubling, $400bn, $800bn, $1600bn / Economics / Credit Crisis 2008

By: Hans_Wagner

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleCredit is the fuel that drives the economy. If you want to beat the market or want to learn to invest, it is important to have a good understanding of important factors that affect the economy. The large loan losses banks are experiencing are limiting their ability to provide credit to help companies grow. If companies cannot grow their business, the economy will continue to be weak.

America's Financial Collapse- It's the Economy Stupid! / Economics / US Economy

By: Mike_Stathis

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIt's shocking to see so many who remain in denial about the economy, specifically the pundits. Until they see two consecutive quarters of negative GDP growth (a ridiculously misleading metric – see my previous article “How Washington is Fooling You With GDP Data”) they refuse to admit we are in a recession. And the media acts as puppets, repeating these same lines without scrutinizing the data. Who do these people think they're kidding? If you're running a show designed to help investors, shouldn't you be ahead of the curve instead of behind it? Serving as broadcasters for inaccurate data that's been manipulated to fool the public does nothing to aid an audience looking for real investment guidance.

United States Abandoning Capitalism for Socialism / Economics / Government Intervention

By: John_Browne

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOver the past few decades, the United States has steadily evolved from a nation of ‘producers' to one of ‘consumers'.  The change has been celebrated by politicians and economists as proof of America's arrival at the top of the global economic food chain.  In reality, the development has depleted the nation of its hard-earned wealth, and has led us to the brink of ruin.

Washington Manipulation of GDP Data to Hide Recessions / Economics / Market Manipulation

By: Mike_Stathis

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleI continue where I left off – discussing just a few of the ways Washington tries to fool us by its misuse and manipulation of data. Washington likes to remind critics that Americans enjoy the highest living standard in the world. As evidence of this, government “experts” discuss statistics such as GDP growth, employment, wealth, income and wage growth, and other economic data without defining exactly what they are referring to or explaining all the assumptions used. In Part 1 of this series, we saw how hedonics can alter GDP and inflation data. Here we look at some additional problems with GDP. After you read this piece, I hope you will agree that the misuse of GDP data as an indicator of economic strength has been one of the biggest errors made in the field of U.S. economics.

Central Bankers Safety Confidence Trick as Great Depression 2.0 Looms / Economics / Economic Depression

By: Darryl_R_Schoon

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleRising gold prices are a cold sore on the lip of central bankers. In the world of paper money, it's a clear sign something's not right

Central bankers are the keepers of the keys to the kingdom. The kingdom, however, is on the edge of bankruptcy and in danger as never before. Comparisons are now being made to the Great Depression of the 1930s. The comparisons, however, are just that.

Contracting S&P 500 Corporate Earnings Confirm US Recession / Economics / Corporate Earnings

By: Paul_L_Kasriel

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAre we in a recession or are we not? The debate goes on. Take a look at the year-over-year change in operating profits of the S&P 500 corporations (see Chart 1). Profits have declined for three consecutive quarters through the first quarter of this year. Given reports of second-quarter profits to date and estimates of those corporate profits to be reported, it is a good bet that year-over-year profits will be down for four consecutive quarters.

The Paradox of Deleveraging at the Heart of the Credit Crisis / Economics / Credit Crisis 2008

By: John_Mauldin

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleI have often commented about the problem of personal savings. We worry about the lack of savings here in the US, but many do not understand that if everyone started to save 5% of there income immediately that it would seriously impact consumer spending, pushing the US into a recession. It is a paradox, as Paul McCulley points out, that what may be good for the individual may not be good for the collective country.

US Recession Trend Status on US GDP Growth Data / Economics / US Economy

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWilliam Patalon III writes: A hectic week on the economic calendar is highlighted by the initial look at second quarter gross domestic product (GDP). Remember, a recession is defined as two consecutive quarters of negative growth, so doomsayers have targeted this week's release as confirmation of their pessimism.

Fortunately, the analyst consensus holds that the economy expanded at a faster pace than the 1% rate of the first quarter, putting us safely outside of recession territory. Investors get another view inside the struggling labor market where layoffs (mainly among financials) have resulted in overall job contractions for five consecutive months.
