Why Innovation Needs Big Government / Economics / Government Intervention

By: Ian_Fletcher

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMost people realize that the Federal budget deficit and the trade deficit are serious problems. Unfortunately, as I have argued previously, few people grasp the importance of another big deficit in our economy, without which it will be extremely hard to fix the first two: our innovation deficit.

Simply put: despite appearances to the contrary, our economy is not innovative enough. And it’s costing us, big-time.

Europe on the Edge of Abyss, U.S. Housing Market In the Abyss / Economics / Credit Crisis 2011

By: Mike_Shedlock

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleRobert Samuelson on Real Clear Politics says Europe at the Abyss

It has come to this. A year after rescuing Greece from default, Europe is staring into the abyss. The bailout has proved insufficient. Greece needs more money, and it can't borrow from private markets where it faces interest rates as high as 25 percent. There is no easy escape.

Fiat Currency Economic Death Spiral Has Been Triggered / Economics / Fiat Currency

By: Gordon_T_Long

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleFor nearly 30 years we have had two Global Strategies working in a symbiotic fashion that has created a virtuous economic growth spiral. Unfortunately, the economic underpinnings were flawed and as a consequence, the virtuous cycle has ended. It is now in the process of reversing and becoming a vicious downward economic spiral.

One of the strategies is the Asian Mercantile Strategy. The other is the US Dollar Reserve Currency Strategy.

U.S. Q1 2011 GDP Revision / Economics / Economic Statistics

By: Tony_Pallotta

The first of two revisions for Q1 2011 Real GDP came in unchanged at 1.8%. Internally though this report is rather concerning.

In a previous post I discussed the increased probability of Q2 GDP contracting (found here) with inventory, government and or trade the most likely sources.

The American Manufacturing Crisis and Why it Matters / Economics / US Economy

By: Ian_Fletcher

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDespite the denial chorus of the same politicians, financiers, and economists who told us prior to 2008 that our financial sector was fine, the American public is increasingly aware of the truth: American manufacturing is in a state of deep crisis. (And ,as I argued in a previous article, the recent small uptick in this sector doesn’t change that fact.)

Hyperinflation Nonsense Continues / Economics / HyperInflation

By: Mike_Shedlock

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleEvery time the US dollar ticks lower, commodity prices tick higher, or the CPI rises two tenths of a percent, hyperinflationists come out of the woodwork with nonsensical predictions and silly comparisons to Zimbabwe or Weimar Germany.

Given that the US dollar recently fell to the lower end of its trading range, hyperinflationists once again came forth with their message of impending doom.

U.S. Economic Recovery Faces More Speed Bumps / Economics / Economic Recovery

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleJon D. Markman writes: Of all the economic news last week, the fall in unemployment claims had the most positive impact. It's great to see them come down, and my work suggests that May is on track for a 275,000 gain in payrolls, which is well above current consensus.

Claims fell by 29,000 to 409,000 last week, the second improvement in a row after a couple of sad-sack weeks that were muddied by special events like a new emergency benefits program in Oregon and the layoffs resulting from the parts shortage in Japan.

Is the U.S. Economic Growth Spurt Over? / Economics / US Economy

By: Bill_Bonner

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAs you know, we’ve been wondering about the exhaustion of the Industrial Revolution innovation…and the bankruptcy of the Social Welfare state as a result.

We take for granted that a healthy economy “grows.” Our governments depend on it to pay the bills. Our investments depend on it too; we buy investments that we hope will become more valuable as sales and profits grow along with the economy. But what if all of our assumptions about what is “normal” are wrong? What if the growth spurt we have known for the last 300 years was the exception, not the rule? And what if it were now coming to an end?

QE End, Training Wheels Off, Crash Helmets On / Economics / Quantitative Easing

By: Michael_Pento

Based on many pronouncements by economic policy makers, reams of articles by the top financial journalists and near continuous discussion on the financial news channels, it appears that the quantitative easing juggernaut that has steamed the high seas of macroeconomics for the last three years is finally pulling into port...supposedly for the last time. According to the dominant narrative, QEI and QEII helped stabilize the economy during the Great Recession and now the Federal Reserve is ready to take the training wheels off. If so, the economy may need a helmet because there is virtually no chance that it can avoid major contractions without central banking support.

Copper is Talking, Massive Infrastructure Projects to Boost Productivity Throughout the Economy / Economics / Infrastructure

By: Richard_Mills

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticlePure gold deposits are increasingly difficult to find.
“What really bothers me is that in the 1980s or 1990s, we saw three to five discoveries of 5 to 20 million ounces each, and upwards of 30 to 50 million ounces a year. That is what makes or breaks the industry. There are no discoveries of that magnitude now.” Pierre Lassonde, veteran gold analyst, co-founder/chairman of Franco Nevada Mining Corp., former president of Newmont Mining Corp.

The Coming Great Inflation / Economics / Inflation

By: Michael_J_Kosares

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe table displayed immediately below is likely to surprise even our most-jaded readers. It shows the astronomical increase in cash prices for well-known food commodities over the past 12 months. With inarguable exactness, it contradicts the nearly constant prattle in the mainstream press that inflation is under control, or that it is peaking and likely to come under control sometime soon. Some items on the list have doubled -- even tripled -- in price over the past year. Others have risen at mere double-digit rates.

U.S. Industrial Production Held Back Partly Related to Natural Disaster in Japan / Economics / US Economy

By: Asha_Bangalore

Industrial production held steady in April after a 0.7% in March.  The 1.7% jump in utilities production and 0.8% increase in mining output offset the 0.4% decline in factory production.  The 8.9% decline in auto output was the major reason for the flat headline.  Excluding motor vehicle output, factory production rose 0.2% in April after a 0.3% gain in the prior month.
