Why Economic Growth is Dead / Economics / US Economy

By: Dr_Martenson

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleJohn Rolls Submits: The end of the second round of quantitative easing (QE II) is going to be a complete disaster for the paper markets -- specifically commodities, stocks, and then finally bonds, in that order, with losses of 20% to 50% by the end of October. The only thing that will arrest the plunge will be QE III, although we should remain alert to the likelihood that it will be named something else in an attempt to obscure what it really is. Perhaps it will be known as the "Muni Asset Trust Term Liquidity Facility" or the "American Prime Purchase Program," but whatever it is called, it will involve hundreds of billions of thin-air dollars being printed and dumped into the financial system.

Macro Economic Theory Confusion on Inflation, Commodities, and the Fed / Economics / Economic Theory

By: Kel_Kelly

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleA recent discussion regarding commodity prices on CNBC consisted virtually of sentence-by-sentence errors with respect to macroeconomic theory. Most of the misstatements involve either accidentally or intentionally — I don't know which — attributing economic and financial market events to various incorrect or misleading cause-and-effect scenarios, when the real explanation is simply the government's creation of money and credit.

U.S. Trade Deficit Widens on Higher Oil Prices In March / Economics / US Economy

By: Asha_Bangalore

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe trade deficit widened to $48.18 billion in March from $45.44 billion in the prior month. Nominal exports (+4.6%) and imports (+4.9%) of goods and services advanced in March. In real terms, exports of goods grew 4.8%, while that of imports moved up 3.7%. Effectively, the real trade deficit of goods widened only slightly (%50.1 billion vs. $49.3 billion in February. For the first quarter, the real trade deficit of goods stands at $49.9 billion compared with $45.5 billion in the fourth quarter. The first quarter trade deficit is slightly smaller than the assumption included in the advance estimate of first quarter GDP, implying a small upward revision. The net impact on GDP will be determined by retail sales and inventories numbers to be published on May 12.

The Economy When Capital Is Nowhere in Sight / Economics / Economic Theory

By: Jeffrey_A_Tucker

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleA Travel Channel episode of No Reservations, a cooking-focused show narrated by Anthony Bourdain, took viewers to Port-au-Prince, Haiti. I had heard that the show offered unique insight into the country and its troubles. I couldn't imagine how. But it turns out to be true. Through the lens of food, we can gain an insight into culture, and from culture to economy, and from economy to politics and finally to what's wrong in this country and what can be done about it.

Inflation Fears: Real or Hysteria? / Economics / Inflation

By: Ellen_Brown

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDebate continues to rage between the inflationists who say the money supply is increasing, dangerously devaluing the currency, and the deflationists who say we need more money in the economy to stimulate productivity.  The debate is not just an academic one, since the Fed’s monetary policy turns on it and so does Congressional budget policy.

Inflationary Reality Always Comes After “Recovery” / Economics / Inflation

By: Dr_Jeff_Lewis

Inflation watchers should be witnessing already the reality of the inflationary cycle; companies are cutting down their product sizes, cutting corners on packaging, and most importantly, raising prices.  A few household names like Nike, McDonalds, and Walmart have indicated that it is inflation that is driving up their costs of doing business, and now they’re looking for ways to pass on the costs.

U.S. Economy Boom or Doom, The Truth about the Debt Ceiling Debate / Economics / US Debt

By: Q1_Publishing

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleLet the fear-mongering begin.

The debt ceiling debate has been positioned as a lose/lose situation.

Some claim a failure to increase the debt ceiling will lead to near-term financial Armageddon. They say the U.S. government can’t cut spending now. Deep cuts would kill the economic recovery.

U.S. Rising Inflation Pressures, as Non Oil Import Prices Also Advance / Economics / Inflation

By: Asha_Bangalore

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleRhetoric from the Fed has held that recent gains of commodity prices are "transitory."  Economic data have been supportive of this stance.  Core consumer prices are yet to show worrisome readings and inflation expectations remain anchored.  Against this backdrop, new inflation reports will be tracked closely.  The Consumer Price Index will be published on May 12; import prices were published this morning.

How Iceland Became Paperland / Economics / Credit Crisis 2008

By: MISES

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAndy Duncan writes: If you believe in a Creator, then you must acknowledge that He (or She) possesses an incredible sense of humor. Without this, how do you explain Iceland?

Fortunately for us, and particularly perhaps for the Irish, the Greeks, and the Portuguese, this deific challenge is detailed gloriously in the new book, Deep Freeze: Iceland's Economic Collapse, written by Professors Philipp Bagus and David Howden, which is freely downloadable for your Kindle or iBook pleasure via the Ludwig von Mises Institute.

Does Unreal GDP Data Drive Our Economic Policy Choices? / Economics / Economic Statistics

By: John_Mauldin

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleI am back from Rob Arnott's conference in Laguna Beach, and I must confess that if I had attended it before I wrote last week's e-letter I might have had lower odds on the US political class solving the debt crisis, absent a real economic crisis forcing them to. There were several presentations that made the problems quite clear. It remains a tough issue.

U.S. Employment Data Analysis, Clues from Duration of the Work Week / Economics / Economic Statistics

By: Asha_Bangalore

Digging into the details of the April employment data, we found that the latest average weekly workweek numbers tell two different stories.  The average workweek was 34.3 hours (see Chart 1) in April.  The recent recession ended in June 2009 when workers logged in 33.7 hours; the increase in work hours is noteworthy.  But the gain is still short of the longer average work week (34.6 hours) which prevailed at the onset of the recession in December 2007.  These numbers suggest that employers will have the discretion to postpone employment because there is wiggle room to raise the number of hours worked before they will need to increase payrolls.

The Upside-Down World of Modern Monetary Theory / Economics / Economic Theory

By: Robert_Murphy

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleModern Monetary Theory (MMT) is a hip economic/financial paradigm apparently sweeping a world unsatisfied with mainstream economics. Over the past year, I have been hearing a growing number of people refer to MMT: either fans who think it blows up my Austrian views, or foes who think it deserves a full-scale critique.
