A Case for Free-Market Bank Regulation / Economics / Economic Theory

By: MISES

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAmerica (BAC) has rescinded its plan to charge customers a $5 monthly debit-card fee. Shall we praise bank regulators for their swift action in preventing the exorbitant charge? Well, no. Then we'll credit politicians for legislating against greedy, big-bank profiteering, right? Wrong again. The free market drove BAC to drop the debit-card fee.

Can the Underground Economy Save Europe? / Economics / Euro-Zone

By: David_Howden

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAs the old saying goes, the more expensive you are to fire, the more expensive you are to hire. Nowhere is this more apparent than on the European continent.

Even with the United States' lengthening of unemployment insurance benefits at the wake of this crisis, the benefits for the standard down-on-his-luck American pale in comparison to those of the average European. Upon job separation the average Frenchman can expect to see more than half of his salary extended in the form of unemployment benefits. Many European workers see these benefits extended for two to three years after their termination, with some countries extending benefits indefinitely.

The Coming Global Financial Collapse Quotes That Will Make Your Hair Stand Up / Economics / Great Depression II

By: LewRockwell

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleEconomic Collapse writes: Is the world on the verge of another massive global financial collapse? Yes. The western world is drowning in an ocean of debt unlike anything the world has ever seen before, and our financial markets are gigantic casinos that are dependent on huge mountains of risk and leverage remaining very stable. In the end, this house of cards that has been built on a foundation of sand is going to come crashing down in a horrifying manner. Usually in this column I go on and on about why things will soon get much worse. But today I am going to take a bit of a break. Today, I am going to let some of the top financial professionals in the world tell you why things will soon get much worse. Many of the quotes that you are about to read just might make the hair on the back of your neck stand up. Most people out there have no idea what is about to happen. Most people out there are working hard and are busy preparing for the holidays and they are hopeful that the economy will turn around soon. But that is not going to happen. We are heading for another major global financial collapse, and when it happens the U.S. economy is going to get even worse.

Understand Everything Fundamentally, The entropic force is fundamental / Economics / Economic Theory

By: Shelby_H_Moore

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleHistoric and recent scientific developments add to our understanding of how the entropic force from physics may govern everything in nature, including ecosystems and economics. This can be applied to fundamental analysis of potential political outcomes, macroeconomics, and paradigmatic epochal shifts, e.g. the current shift from the industrial to the knowledge age.

Global Balance Sheet Depression Making Second More Dangerous Credit Crisis Inevitable / Economics / Great Depression II

By: John_Mauldin

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleI have been reading and talking with Simon Hunt for a long time. He is a very thoughtful Brit who spends a lot of time in China and thinks about copper and commodities and cycles. He has enough seasoning to have seen a few cycles himself. This piece summarizes rather well the view that he has expressed for some time. And while I am generally skeptical of relying too much on cycles for specifics (they work until they don't), I think Simon has some very powerful conclusions. From his summary:

"The world is in a balance sheet depression which will make a second and perhaps more dangerous credit crisis almost inevitable. That should break out next year or in 2013.

Europe Is in for a Long Recession / Economics / Double Dip Recession

By: Paul_L_Kasriel

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleCollectively, the 27 sovereign nations that make up the European Union (EU) most likely entered a recession this quarter. Chart 1 shows that EU industrial production contracted at an annualized rate of 15.5% in September vs. August, a near certain sign of a recession. Given that the EU represents the largest economy in the world, a recession there is no small beer for the rest of the world.

Is America's Second Deflationary Economic Depression Ahead? / Economics / Great Depression II

By: EWI

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDon't blame Martin Van Buren for America's first deflationary depression. Social mood rode higher in the saddle than did our 8th President, who only stood 5' 6".

Elected in 1836, by the time Van Buren assumed office in March 1837 a speculative bubble had burst and a banking crisis was at hand (sound familiar?) -- the national mood had turned south and the "Panic of 1837" followed. Van Buren was known as "The Little Magician," but he could not pull an economic recovery out of the hat. He met defeat seeking a second term.

Is Economic Optimism Warranted Or Not? / Economics / US Economy

By: Tony_Pallotta

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article"Things are not always what they seem; the first appearance deceives many; the intelligence of a few perceives what has been carefully hidden" - Author unknown

Recent economic data has surprised to the upside and once again hope springs eternal. Like a school of bait fish many economists and market pundits seem to be reversing course scrambling to highlight the positives in the economy while ignoring the structural problems that still exist.

Darkest Days" for the U.S. Economy Behind Us, or Just Ahead? / Economics / Great Depression II

Slowing Germany and Rising PIIGS Yield Make Perfect Economic Crisis Storm / Economics / Double Dip Recession

By: Capital3X

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleGermany registered an impressive quarter-on-quarter growth of 0.5% in the third quarter. However, the recent drop in the leading indicators suggests that the German economy will not expand much in Q4, if at all; it might even contract. The uncertainties triggered by the sovereign debt crisis are increasingly dampening activity. The growth rate for the second quarter was revised upwards, from 0.1% to 0.3%. This suggests that the German economy might expand by 3.0% in 2011 as a whole which is impressive but well baked into the price.

U.S. Initial Jobless Claims, Improvement is Small but Notable / Economics / US Housing

By: Asha_Bangalore

Initial jobless claims fell 5,000 to 388,000 during the week ended November 12. Initial jobless claims have dropped during four out of the last six weeks and they are close to the low of 375,000 for 2011 registered during the week ended February 26 (see Chart 4). The initial jobless claims reading of the latest week is a noteworthy improvement. However, larger declines are necessary to say with confidence that the labor market has crossed the threshold of concern.

U.S. Wholesale Prices Show Moderating Trend / Economics / Inflation

By: Asha_Bangalore

The Producer Price Index (PPI) of Finished Goods fell 0.3% in October after a 0.8% jump in the prior month.  A 1.4% drop of the energy price index was responsible for about two-thirds of the decline in the wholesale price index.  The core PPI, which excludes food and energy, held steady in October after ten monthly gains.  Lower prices for cars and trucks offset price hikes of other core items.

U.S. October Retail Sales Bode Well for the Final Quarter of 2011 / Economics / US Economy

By: Asha_Bangalore

Retail sales rose 0.5% in October after a 1.1% increase in September.  Unit auto sales matter in the computation of GDP, not the retail sales tally.  Unit auto sales rose to 13.26 million units in October from 13.1 million units in September.  These numbers imply that auto sales will make a positive contribution to spending in October.  Gasoline sales are largely influenced by the price of gasoline; the 0.4% drop in gasoline sales in October reflects lower prices.  Gasoline prices show a downward trend in the early days of November, implying a possible drop of the price index in November.
