Where Profit Comes From / Economics / Economic Theory

By: George_Reisman

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleLabor unions like to argue that the payment of higher wages is to the self-interest of employers because the wage earners will use their higher wages to make additional purchases from business firms, thereby increasing the sales revenues and profits of business firms. However, wrong and foolish it may be, this is an argument worth analyzing in some detail, because it can provide a gateway to a discussion of the actual sources of profit in the economic system.

U.S. Inflation Set to Soar as the Country's Chief Export Boomerangs Back Home / Economics / Inflation

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMartin Hutchinson writes: While prices for food and energy have been rising, inflation in the United States has remained relatively subdued.

One common explanation for that phenomenon is that U.S. inflation has been "exported" to China and elsewhere through the U.S. Federal Reserve's monetary policy. And given the perennial U.S. balance of payments deficit, it's good to know the country has found something it can successfully export!

Rising Consumer Inflation: The New World Order By Commodity / Economics / Inflation

By: Dian_L_Chu

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleEver since the Great Recession, inflation has been put on the back burner, and deflation is seen as the greatest risk to the U.S. economy. Even as recent as Friday, Jan 7, Federal Reserve Chairman Bernanke told the Senate Budget Committee that low inflation/deflation was a concern, as well as unemployment (more on the jobs situation here.)

Global Aging and the Crisis of the 2020s, Demographic Storms Ahead / Economics / Demographics

By: John_Mauldin

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleFrom the fall of the Roman and the Mayan empires to the Black Death to the colonization of the New World and the youth-driven revolutions of the twentieth century, demographic trends have played a decisive role in many of the great invasions, political upheavals, migrations, and environmental catastrophes of history. By the 2020s, an ominous new conjuncture of demographic trends may once again threaten widespread disruption. I am, of course, talking about global aging, which is likely to have a profound effect on economic growth, living standards, and the shape of the world order.

Long Shadows Cast Over US Economy 2011 / Economics / US Economy

By: Jim_Willie_CB

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleNumerous are the threats to the USEconomy and US financial structures. Many are hidden threats, subtle challenges to undermine increasingly fragile support systems, planks, and cables that hold the system together. The year 2011 will be when the system breaks in open visible fashion, when the explanations that justify it sound silly and baseless, when the entire bond world endures major crashes. All thing financial are inter-related. Recall that in summer 2007, the professor occupying the US Federal Reserve claimed the subprime mortgage crisis was isolated.

Hoover and Bush, Interventionism Turns Crisis into Great Depression / Economics / Great Depression II

By: Mark_Thornton

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe most basic rule of economic policy is to allow prices to adjust to market conditions. This maintains Say's Law and produces what Frédéric Bastiat called economic harmony.

Furthermore, unhampered markets minimize distortions and disruptions introduced by external forces. Most importantly, the unhampered price system minimizes the impact of the business cycle on the economy. This paper examines two historical episodes where interventionist policies turned business cycle corrections into depressions.[1]

John Williams Eyes Gold as Insurance Against Hyper Inflation Armageddon / Economics / HyperInflation

By: The_Gold_Report

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleStronger corporate balance sheets, tighter reins on costs and better stock performance in 2010 haven't swayed ShadowStats Editor John Williams' assertion that the bottom-bouncing economy is weaker than ever, with specters of hyperinflation and systemic financial collapse on the not-so-distant horizon. As he says in this exclusive Gold Report interview, the yellow metal is his "insurance against Armageddon"—or at least the single best asset that people can use to ride out the storm.

Following the Efficient-Markets Hypothesis into Absurdity / Economics / Economic Theory

By: Robert_Murphy

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAustrians in the tradition of Mises and Rothbard stress the resilience of a free-market economy, and they believe that the institution of private property — along with the profit-and-loss test — will steer resources into their most valuable niches.

However, most Austrians stop short of following Chicago School economists' advocacy of the "efficient-markets hypothesis" (EMH). In its most extreme form, the EMH becomes a caricature of itself in which asset bubbles are not just unlikely but logically impossible.

U.S. and Global Economic Forecast 2011, Russia and the Roots of World Inflation / Economics / US Economy

By: John_Mauldin

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIt is time once again to throw caution and wisdom to the wind and actually make my 11th annual forecast. I have to admit this is the most stressful letter I write each year. I do at least 5-10 times more research and thinking about this issue than any other. On a positive note, this may be one of the more optimistic forecast letters I have done in a long time. But there are some asterisks, as always. We will survey the world, trying to peer through the fog of the future. There are some very interesting side trails we will want to explore. Did you know some events in Russia could have real ramifications for inflation in China, the US, and the world? I pay attention to the background details and bring them to you. So settle back as we tour the world.

By: Dian_L_Chu
