U.S. Consumer Spending Pickup in July Lacks Durability / Economics / US Economy

By: Asha_Bangalore

Real consumer spending increased 0.5% in July after holding steady in May and June.  Consumer outlays of durables (+2.0%) raised the overall reading; it was largely an increase in purchases of cars (12.2 million vs. 11.6 million in June).  The 0.5% gain in service expenditures reflects a big increase in health care expenditures.  Purchases of non-durables declined 0.3% in July vs. a 0.4% increase in the prior month.

How Canada Escaped the Global Recession / Economics / Canada

By: MISES

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDavid Lee writes: Four months ago, Canadians emphatically renewed the ruling party's conservative mandate, handing Stephen Harper and the Tories the country's first majority government in over a decade. This victory was underscored by the humiliating decline of the Liberals — the country's "natural governing party" — who were displaced by a radical fringe party in their office of Official Opposition in the Canadian House of Commons. Adding insult to injury, the leader of the Liberals, former Harvard professor Michael Ignatieff, failed to win his own seat and was sent unceremoniously into political retirement.

Field Of U.S. Economic Dreams / Economics / US Economy

By: Tony_Pallotta

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article"If you build it he will come." - Field Of Dreams

"We built it and he did not show." - US economic reality

The consumer driven recession has begun. Keeping it very simple of the four GDP components (consumer, fixed investment, government and net trade) the consumer has simply rolled over. In Q1 2011 the consumer contributed 1.46% to the 0.4% total GDP. In other words if it was not for consumer growth or even if .5% of that growth was removed the economy contracted in Q1 2011.

The Fed Will Allow Business Cycle To Play Out Longer This Time! / Economics / US Economy

By: Sy_Harding

The Federal Reserve played its part well, along with the Treasury Department, the White House, and Congress, in helping prevent the financial meltdown of 2008-2009 from turning the ‘Great Recession’ of 2007-2009 into the next Great Depression.

But its solo intervention with its QE2 quantitative easing program last year to boost the again faltering economy seems to have only delayed the business cycle.

By: Barry_Elias

Keynesian Economic Solutions - After Total Failure –Try, Try Again / Economics / Economic Theory

By: James_Quinn

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis Article“Lenin is said to have declared that the best way to destroy the capitalist system was to debauch the currency. By a continuing process of inflation, governments can confiscate, secretly and unobserved, an important part of the wealth of their citizens. By this method they not only confiscate, but they confiscate arbitrarily; and, while the process impoverishes many, it actually enriches some. The sight of this arbitrary rearrangement of riches strikes not only at security, but at confidence in the equity of the existing distribution of wealth.” – John Maynard Keynes – The Economic Consequences of the Peace

Can China Save The World? Towards A New Economic Model / Economics / Global Economy

By: DK_Matai

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAs the West contemplates a new phase in the global financial crisis, China -- the second biggest economy on Earth -- appears to some executive decision makers to be well placed to sail through the doldrums of the global financial markets or even use her wealth to come to the rescue of the rich world. Is this wishful thinking or is it grounded in facts? Despite its rising pre-eminence on the world stage, China is unlikely to save the world if the West slides back into recession. Why?

GDP Statistic Is a Lie, Time for a New Measure of Economic Growth / Economics / Economic Statistics

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMartin Hutchinson writes: Gross domestic product (GDP) is the most commonly used measure of economic growth. But GDP isn't just inaccurate and misleading - it's the contrivance of Keynesian economists seeking to push their own, big-government agenda.

That's right. GDP is a financial ruse - the biggest of the past half-century. And it's time to move past it to another, more accurate measure of economic growth.
