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

By: David_Petch

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMonopoly is one of the most popular board games ever created, which was first patented in 1935 by Charles Darrow. The object of the game is to accumulate as much of the property over the course of the game until everyone else is wiped out…there are more eloquent ways to define the rules, but the above definition is the blunt version.

US Manipulated CPI Inflation Statistics- Stagflation 1980 and Now / Economics / Stagflation

By: Tim_Iacono

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThere's been a lot of talk in recent months about how different the current period is from bouts of "stagflation" in the 1970s and early 1980s. According to the BLS (Bureau of Labor Statistics), "inflation" peaked in 1980 at around 14 percent or so and many pundits today say that we'll never see those levels ever again.

They're probably right ... but not for the reasons you might think.

US CPI Inflation Falls to 4%- Flashes Deflation Warning to Commodity Bulls Towards 2008 End / Economics / Inflation

By: Nadeem_Walayat

US CPI Inflation came in flat for February, confounding consensus forecasts that called for a rise of 0.2%. Annualised CPI falls to 4% from 4.3% and is inline with my overall expectations as highlighted in the extensive article of 2nd March 08 - Credit Crisis Morphs Into Stagflation- Protect Your Wealth! Which concluded that deflationary forces would take hold towards the end of 2008 as illustrated by the graph below -

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleLarry Edelson writes: It's 3:30 AM here in Bangkok as I write this edition of Money and Markets . Across the street from my apartment, four towers are rising toward the sky. A 52-story luxury condo development is under construction with crews working 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

It's hard to believe that the crane operators, now perched over the 22nd floor, can see what they are doing as they hoist up tons of rebar, bins full of cement, rolls of steel sheathing and stacks of glass.

Patchy Nature of the Credit Crisis / Economics / Credit Crisis 2008

By: Michael_Pento

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe strange thing about myths is that while some have their basis in truth, for the most part they suffer from a dearth of reality. The same is true about today's well promulgated credit crisis. First let me admit, there clearly is a crisis in certain areas of the credit markets. For instance, there is definitive evidence of duress for hedge funds that hold Credit Default Obligations, especially in leveraged portfolios. A crunch also exists for mortgage lending companies that must issue asset-backed commercial paper.

Japanese Economic Hard Landing Forecast for 2008 / Economics / Japan Economy

By: Dr_Krassimir_Petrov

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhile investment powerhouses like UBS barely lowered their 2008 growth forecast for Japan in late January down to 1.2%, their forecast is likely to prove overly optimistic. Even in late January, Morgan Stanley's respective forecast is 1.1%. IMF's forecast is 1.5%. So far, only Goldman Sacs has suggested that there is a probability that the Japanese economy may have slipped into a recession at the beginning of 2008. I believe that the Japanese economy will surprise on the downside with a recession during 2008 that may likely extend into 2009.

Bad Economics Caused Our Economies Current Account Problems / Economics / Austrailia

By: Gerard_Jackson

The current account deficit, rising prices and our deteriorating foreign debt situation has caused the Reserve Bank of Australia to raise the cash rate from 7 per cent to 7.25 per cent. Bank assets are a useful guide to monetary policy. These fell by 36.25 per cent from May 2007 to January 2008. These figures suggest that the RBA means business and will continue to raise rates until it brings spending under 'control'. Unfortunately this cannot be done without bringing the economy to a grinding halt. So how did we arrive to this situation?

Can Supply-side Economics Save the US Economy from the Boom Bust Cycle? / Economics / US Economy

By: Gerard_Jackson

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleCurrent trends in the US economy are worrying a lot of people -- and so they should. Unfortunately worrying never solved any problems, only action can do that. But in order to solve a problem once must first identify it. Remember that economic trends are the product of deeper forces. For instance, a continual rise in productivity year after year is the fruit of capital accumulation increasing faster than the population. On the other hand, the so-called boom-bust cycle is the result of bad economics.

The US Economies Path to Recession / Economics / Recession

By: Ronald_R_Cooke

In March of 2007, I predicted America would have a recession before the end of 2008. (see Warning: Recession Ahead at http://www.theculturaleconomist blog.blogspot.com/ . At that point in time, my thoughts were greeted with a certain amount of – shall we say – skepticism.  Well.  Here we are one year later.  It would appear the number of skeptics has decreased.

Deflating Housing and Credit Bubbles Will Lead to DisInflation / Economics / Credit Crisis 2008

  • Best Financial Markets Analysis Article The BS from the BLS
  • 2,500,000 "Lost Jobs" and Counting
  • Taking a Long-Term Perspective
  • Leverage in Reverse Gear
  • What's That Hissing Sound?

The official number for employment suggested a loss of 63,000 jobs. But could it have been more like 200,000? And I will make a case for 2,000,000 lost jobs last month. This week we will take a look at the confusing labor-market picture in the US. We will also look at the debate over the money supply. Is the Fed increasing the money supply at a reckless rate, fueling inflation fears down the road? All this and a lot more as we look at how the recession in affecting everyone and everything, from individuals to large businesses. (The letter will print a little long, but there are a lot of charts.)

Post Bubble America Heading for Deepest Recession Since the Great Depression / Economics / Economic Depression

By: Mike_Whitney

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMarket conditions are the worst anyone in this industry can ever remember. I don't think anyone has a recollection of a total disappearance in liquidity...There are billion of dollars worth of assets out there for which there is just no market.” Alain Grisay, chief executive officer of London-based F&C Asset Management Plc; Bloomberg News

The hurricane that began with subprime mortgages, has swept through the credit markets wreaking havoc on municipal bonds, hedge funds, complex structured investments, and agency debt (Fannie Mae). Now the first gusts from the Force-5 gale are touching down in the real economy where the damage is expected to be widespread.

US Dollar-Gold: A Perfect Hyper-Stagflationary Storm / Economics / Stagflation

By: Jim_Willie_CB

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe title should really be “Psychology of 1000-20-100” to give respect to the major signpost price targets. The $1000 gold target is within reach. The $20 silver target has been breached. The $100 crude oil price has been breached. Before long, all three price levels will serve as support. When a gold target of $1000 was proposed three to four years ago, most people dominated (or bound) by conventional thinking dismissed such talk as silly, irresponsible, even ludicrous. Not any more! The same goes for silver and crude oil with their respective distant price targets, each attained. Profound market psychology is in the process of changing. Many new wrong analyses will come to the table, like so many casseroles containing rancid meat and rotten vegetables as ingredients. They will maintain that now these three goals have been met, the great sell off can begin. They will be dead wrong.

Eurozone Economy Heading for Hard Landing- Economic Forecast 2008 / Economics / Euro-Zone

By: Dr_Krassimir_Petrov

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleEconomic reality will likely prove forecasts of major international institutions about Europe's 2008 growth prospects wrong. So, let us first see what they think; then we will see what I think and why.

A number of major institutions have provided their 2008 Eurozone economic forecast. Interestingly, many of them just recently (December 2007) revised down their forecasts. Here is a quick survey: 2.1% by IMF – revised its 2008 growth forecast for the Eurozone down from 2.5%; 1.9% by OECD; 2.0% by ECB, the midpoint of their range, down from previous midpoint of 2.3%; 2.0% by EU Commission; 1.8% by ING Financial Markets.

Why the United States Will Go Into Recession / Economics / Recession

By: Gerard_Jackson

If my email is anything to go by, there are a lot of worried and confused people out there. Basically most want to know why if the US economy is going to slide into recession. Of course it will. The question is when. I have to exercise caution here because I haven't had the time during the last couple of weeks to take a much closer look at the economic trends. Since Bush won the 2000 election the media has done nothing but report economic doom. For them, predicting a recession is bit like predicting rain a few weeks hence. They one will eventually develop, they just hope Bush is still president when this happens.

Stagflation and the Fed- Damn the Inflation Torpedoes! Full Speed Ahead! / Economics / Stagflation

  • Memo from the Fed: Inflation? What Inflation?

  • Damn the Inflation Torpedoes! Full Speed Ahead!
  • Apple, Sprint, AT&T, and Going to the Dark Side

This week's topic was inspired by a discussion I had with George Friedman of Stratfor fame last night. He was suggesting the recession would be short and steep, and I of course think it is going to be shallow and with a long, protracted, and slow Muddle Through recovery. And it all hinges on how the Fed thinks about inflation.

Tax Rebate 2008 - United States Congress Resorts to Trickle-Up Irrationality / Economics / Credit Crisis 2008

By: Andy_Sutton

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe Roman poet Juvenal used the term ‘bread and circuses' to characterize palliative measures taken by the imperial Roman government to lure the populace into a state of blissful ignorance. This blissful ignorance comes at the expense of the solution of long-term societal problems, and arguably was a significant component of the end of the Empire.

Charles Fourier described his economic pinnacle a bit differently, opining that the oceans would turn to lemonade and roasted chickens would fly into our mouths. He used this amazing statement to describe a utopian socialism where the government was the ultimate provider.

What if Conventional Wisdom On Economic Growth and Consumer Spending Is Wrong? / Economics / US Economy

By: Tim_Iacono

There it was, right in the middle of the front page of yesterday's Wall Street Journal about four paragraphs down in the lead story titled " Decline in Home Prices Accelerates " - more evidence that the economy as we know it could be fundamentally flawed, yet you'd never get a hint of that even from reading one of the the world's finest business publication.
