Government Spending Is Bad Economics / Economics / Government Spending

By: J_M_Finegold_Catalan

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe debate about whether or not government spending is a useful countercyclical tool has been revived by the continuing economic crisis. Today, the discussion has been politicized and deals almost exclusively with the size of government debt, focusing on the tax burden this debt represents for future generations and whether or not further debt will help stimulate the economy. Politically, the result has been a middle-of-the-road fiscal policy that has left no economist satisfied. Academically, the debate is generally split between free-market and Keynesian schools of thought, with each side arguing for a policy very different from those already implemented.

What is the U.S. Employment Picture in Really Saying? / Economics / Employment

By: Mike_Stathis

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleJobs Data - As in previous months, the private sector accounted for all the job gains in February, with an addition of 222,000 positions, up from a mere 68,000 job additions in January. This represented the largest gain since April 2010. Does this represent a sign of recovery?

Once you examine these job additions, you will see that the trend of low-wage, low/no-benefit, dead-end jobs remains firmly intact. [1]

There Will be a Double Dip Economic Recession, the Tipping Point / Economics / Double Dip Recession

By: Richard_Hartley

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe first part of this sorry tale was caused by greed and inflated money markets. This gave near full employment and unprecedented growth around the world.

The last two years has been caused by the markets realization that you cannot carry on and keep re-inflating the money markets as really there was no-one else left to lend to. People max'd out on credit cards, took equity withdrawals. A stupid scheme was enacted to allow people with no money to own homes backed by large mortgages giving to anyone that asked and to a lot that didn't but just signed on the dotted line. .

The Inflation Knuckleball / Economics / Inflation

By: Michael_Pento

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleBy its very definition, fiat money is something created out of thin air: the word "fiat" is Latin for "let it be done" (as in, by decree). But the convenience that such a currency system offers central bankers is paid at the expense of savers.

With nothing of real or lasting value on which to anchor, the value of fiat currencies can always blow away like ashes on a windy day.

Economists Are Hopelessly Naive About International Trade / Economics / Economic Theory

By: Ian_Fletcher

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe economics profession, or well over 90 percent of it according to polls, continues to support free trade. Above all, most economists remain stuck in a cheery “win-win” fantasy of how trade works and are unable to see the brutally adversarial dynamics of trade in the real world.

U.S. Economy In the Greater Economic Depression Confirmed by GDP Data / Economics / Great Depression II

By: Jas_Jain

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOn all forums and blogs I have always posted under my name, Jas Jain, but in early days of my comments in 1990s I would sign as Rabbi Jazzman (rabbi of morality of financial practices and their impact on the real economy and asset classes, e.g., the stock market and the housing market; with moral tone obvious in my use of language). Here is a quote from the period, July 1998:

"May be you are on to something here... What will happen...? The Greater Depression? ...The glory days of the US stock market may be over for good and in few decades the Chinese might assume the place of the supreme economic power in the world. Shalom, shalom. Rabbi Jazzman"

Economic Recovery Statistics / Economics / Economic Recovery

By: Pravda

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMichael Snyder writes: Today there are two very different Americas. In one America, the stock market is soaring, huge bonuses are taken for granted, the good times are rolling and people are spending money as if they will be able to "live the dream" for the rest of their lives. In the other America, the one where most of the rest of us live, unemployment is rampant, a million families were kicked out of their homes last year and hordes of American families are drowning in debt. The gap between the rich and the poor is bigger today than it ever has been before. In fact, this article is not so much about "rich vs poor" as it is about "the rich vs the rest of us". Barack Obama and Ben Bernanke keep touting an "economic recovery", but the truth is that the only ones that seem to be benefiting from this recovery are those at the very top of the economic food chain.

First they inflate, then there is a Boom, Then Price Inflation / Economics / Central Banks

By: Gary_North

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleYou are on the back of a tiger. You had no say in the matter. You are part of the international economy, and central bankers run it.

First they inflate. Then there is a boom. Then there is price inflation. Then they stop inflating. Then there is a recession. To keep it from becoming a depression, they inflate. Year after year, decade after decade, generation after generation, this is what central bankers do.

U.S. Fourth Quarter Real GDP Economic Growth Upward Revision / Economics / US Economy

By: Asha_Bangalore

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleReal GDP of the economy grew at an annual rate of 3.1% in the fourth quarter of 2010, revised up from the prior estimate of a 2.8% increase. The U.S economy grew 2.9% in 2010 after a 2.6% decline in 2009. The outlook for 2011 is for a slightly stronger performance, with most of the growth representing self-sustained economic growth compared with artificial support that has maintained economic momentum in 2010 to a large extent.

Hidden U.S. Inflation, U.S. Consumers Adjust Spending Habits Amid Soaring Prices / Economics / Inflation

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleKerri Shannon writes: U.S. consumers have watched food and fuel prices eat away at their household budgets, and now those price hikes are spreading to other products - with the worst yet to come.

New York Federal Reserve Bank President William Dudley recently got a taste of public frustration with higher prices. He spoke to a crowd in Queens, New York on March 11 to tackle a mountain of food inflation questions. Dudley told the audience that while some prices are rising, other products are cheaper - like the Apple Inc.'s (Nasdaq: AAPL) latest iPad.

Weimer Hyperinflation Angst and the United States Today / Economics / HyperInflation

By: Fred_Sheehan

When Money Dies: The Nightmare of the Weimer Hyperinflation, by Adam Fergusson, was published in 1975 and became a best-seller in 2010. Federal Reserve Chairman Ben S. Bernanke's claim that "inflation expectations are contained" is refuted (once again) by this 35-year, dust-gathering incident, unless the public took a sudden interest in multiplying millions, billions, and trillions - a "delirium of milliards" - the phrase of soon-to-be-assassinated Weimer government minister Walter Rathanau.

Top 10 Keynesian Ways to Boost the Economy / Economics / Economic Recovery

By: Submissions

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleJason Kaspar writes: Keynesian economists are propagandizing the media with a unified message; in one breath lightly touching on the human tragedy in Japan, while in the next anticipating with delight the economic recovery it will (supposedly) create. The natural disaster in Japan is tragic both on a human level and economically. Japan may, possibly, enjoy a GDP boost in six months or so as a result of some rebuilding, but the billions in present-day lost productivity will easily negate any future upside.

US Growth Expectations Neglect Weak Consumer Sector / Economics / US Economy

By: ECR_Research

Consensus on US growth this year is around 3.5%, and many economists and analysts expect the same growth rate, or a bit higher, the years thereafter. But where will this expected growth come from?

This is however the bright side of the medallion. There is, unfortunately, another side, which makes it really questionable how the US could possible attain a growth rate of 3.5% or higher for the coming years. There are several points to make.
