U.S. Real GDP Momentum Pickup Buys Time Before Fed Acts Again / Economics / US Economy

By: Asha_Bangalore

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleReal gross domestic product (GDP) of the U.S. economy grew at an annual rate of 2.5% in the third quarter after registering an abysmally slow performance in the first-half of the year (+0.9%). The headline and details of the third quarter GDP report are both encouraging given that considerations of a double dip surfaced in recent weeks.

By: Asha_Bangalore

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe Conference Board’s Consumer Confidence Index dropped 6.6 points to 39.8 in October. This reading is approaching the recession low of 25.3 recorded in February 2009. The Present Situation Index fell 7.0 points to 26.3, while the Expectations Index dropped to 48.7 from 55.1 in September. Essentially, the latest consumer confidence numbers are raising a red flag in an already weak economic environment.

The Real Debt Crisis Contagion Risk / Economics / Global Debt Crisis

By: Dr_Martenson

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAround here we like to track things from the outside in, as the initial movements at the periphery tend to give us an early warning of when things might go wrong at the center. It is always the marginal country, weakest stock in a sector, or fringe population that gives us the early warning that trouble is afoot. For example, rising food stamp utilization and poverty levels in the US indicate that economic hardship is progressing from the lower socioeconomic levels up towards the center -- that is, from the outside in.

Savings, The Paradox of Thrift Debunked / Economics / Economic Theory

By: Colin_Twiggs

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleEver since John Maynard Keynes popularized the Paradox of Thrift, economists, central bankers and politicians have labored under the misapprehension that high levels of savings are bad for the economy and inhibit growth. The Paradox of Thrift simply states: Increased savings means there are less buyers for goods produced, so the nation as a whole will tend to produce less.

The Great Depression 80 Years Later, Same Culprits, Same Rage / Economics / Economic Depression

By: James_Quinn

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe young man stands on the edge of his porch
The days were short and the father was gone
There was no one in the town and no one in the field
This dusty barren land had given all it could yield
I've been kicked off my land at the age of sixteen
And I have no idea where else my heart could have been
I placed all my trust at the foot of this hill
And now I am sure my heart can never be still
So collect your courage and collect your horse
And pray you never feel this same kind of remorse

Economic Growth Is Obsolete / Economics / Economic Theory

By: Andrew_McKillop

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe last 'classic economic growth interval' can be almost exactly defined as the years 2004-2007.

After that, we enter a zone of permanent disaster for the late, unlamented by myself, Growth Economy which can only and does only operate in a series of boom-slump cycles. What we have now, since 2008 is however different: this slump is vastly greater than the nicely doctored official economic numbers can show. True numbers would not only be terrifying, but also hard to believe.

Revisionist History and the Great Depression / Economics / Economic Depression

By: Andy_Sutton

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOver the past several years, the term ‘Great Depression’ has made a grand re-entry into the American mainstream and has as a consequence become perhaps one of the most misunderstood terms. We are told it was everything that it wasn’t and that it wasn’t everything that it was. Like many important historical events, there is a good bit of revisionist history at work with regards to those dark 12 years in American history when it seemed as though there was nothing but despair and governments tripping over themselves to fix something they didn’t have the tools or the business monkeying with in the first place. Think of it like a butcher going to work on the engine of a ’57 Chevy with baseball bat. The results are predictable.

Why the U.S. Recession Forecasters Are Wrong (For Now) / Economics / Economic Recovery

By: Clif_Droke

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleSpeculation over the direction of the economy continues to take center stage. With the presidential election coming up in 2012, the economy will undoubtedly be the central issue on the campaign trail and will receive even more attention than it has up until now. Many analysts have made waves lately in forecasting a "double dip" recession, with at least a couple of high profile analysts claiming the recession has already arrived.

U.S. Initial Jobless Claims, Index of Leading Indicators, Small But Noteworthy Positive Signals / Economics / Economic Recovery

By: Asha_Bangalore

Initial jobless claims dropped 6,000 to 403,000 during the week ended October 15. The 4-week moving average of initial jobless claims (403,000) is the lowest since the week ended April 23, 2011. That said, initial jobless claims are still holding at a worrisome level. In other words, a large drop in initial jobless claims is necessary to say that the worst is behind us. Continuing claims, which lag initial claims by one week, rose 25,000 to 3.719 million.

Does The Economy Need a Referee? / Economics / Economic Theory

By: Jeff_Berwick

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleI recently appeared on Max Keiser’s "On The Edge" program.  Unbeknownst to the viewer, we were having major communication problems.  Max only could hear a small portion of what I said and I, likewise.  But, right at the very end of the interview the communications worked again… that’s when the interview finally got interesting.  Max stated that we “need a referee” in the economy.  I replied, “I disagree.  We don’t need a referee, I’m an anarchist…”

U.S. Inflation Shows Signs of Moderation in September / Economics / Inflation

By: Asha_Bangalore

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe Consumer Price Index (CPI) moved up 0.3% in September, following gains of 0.5% and 0.5% in July and August, respectively. The core CPI, which excludes food and energy, rose only 0.05% in September after a 0.24% increase in August. The September increase is the smallest gain since March 2011 (see Chart 1). These signs of moderation in inflation are noteworthy because they allow the Fed to focus on growth in the inflation-growth debate.

Fed’s Dual Mandate Not Workin, Inflation and Unemployment Are Rising / Economics / Inflation

By: Michael_Pento

We are all aware that the Fed has a dual mandate of stable prices and maximum employment. But what may come as a surprise to most is that they have a distinct preference in their mandates. The Federal Reserve under Ben Bernanke has a clear bias towards fulfilling the goal of maximum employment. Given the situation where unemployment is high and prices are relatively stable, the Fed has opted to pursue a policy of pursuing higher inflation in the hopes of engendering lower unemployment rates.

U.S. Economy Operating in Midst of a Long-term Slump, Depression / Economics / Great Depression II

By: John_Mauldin

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDr. Lacy Hunt and Van Hoisington of Hoisington Investment Management write a "Quarterly Review and Outlook" that is a must-read for me. This quarter they focus on US monetary policy, noting that "After peaking at 1.69 in the second quarter of 2010, M2 velocity declined for four consecutive quarters, and we estimate that a major contraction in velocity to 1.59 is likely for the third quarter." (I mentioned the importance of the velocity of money in judging inflation vs. deflation prospects in this week's e-letter, too.)
