Partial Equilibrium Analysis – Part 2 / Economics / Economic Theory

By: Andy_Sutton

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn the first part of this series, we took at a look at Partial Equilibrium (PE) analysis in terms of analyzing a particular good or service rather than macroeconomic aggregates. What PE allows us to do as well is to both qualitatively and quantitatively assess the true effects of taxes and subsidies. We can also answer whether or not taxes and subsidies represent Pareto efficiencies. For our example we chose to look at the area of gasoline taxes. Many state governments are considering increasing gasoline taxes in the face of collapsing tax receipts.  Intuitively, it would seem that such measures would be penny-wise and dollar foolish, but let’s use PE and see if that bears out conventional wisdom.

Raining on the Inflation Parade / Economics / Deflation

By: Seth_Barani

The major components of the dollar index are Euro, Yen and Pound. If Euro and Pound are expected to struggle from sovereign debt crises and Yen to be kept weak by BOJ intervention, why will dollar index fall? Predictions of a weak $DXY (under 70) seem to be built on shaky grounds. The present formula to calculate the dollar index is a very poor representation of dollar's purchasing power, since it does not take into account prices of asset-vehicles beyond a few forex currencies some of which are also manipulated by central banks. It is our belief that dollar index does not show the true nature of inflation/deflation.

The Irish Economy Collapses As A Result Of The Global Financial Crisis / Economics / Credit Crisis 2010

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article“A Guarantee Too Far”

Currently the Irish economy is in freefall following the collapse of the real estate market that had expanded ten fold in the decade from 1997 – 2007. The reasons for this “Celtic Tiger” boom are many but in the main it arose due to the following:

Deflation Reality or Urban Myth? / Economics / Deflation

By: Puru_Saxena

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleBIG PICTURE:  The inflation/deflation debate is now the ‘topic du jour’ and although we have discussed this issue in the past, we want to throw more light on this very important subject. 

Today, many prominent economists (Nouriel Roubini, David Rosenberg and Paul Krugman) and fund managers (Bill Gross and Jeremy Grantham) are forecasting deflation and according to these folks, a deflationary contraction is now ‘baked in the cake’.  In fact, these deflationists are extremely worried about the ongoing private-sector debt-deleveraging in the developed world and they are also concerned about the lack of aggregate demand in the industrialised nations.  Bearing in mind these two factors, these prominent people believe that deflation is now almost guaranteed and inflation is out of the question.

U.S. Debt the Illegitimate Child Of The Mother Of All Bubbles / Economics / US Debt

By: James_Quinn

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThere is no doubt the home price bubble inflated by Easy Al Greenspan between 2000 and 2006 was the Mother of All Bubbles. Robert Shiller clearly showed that home prices were two standard deviations above expectations. Despite the unequivocal facts that Dr. Shiller put forth, millions of delusional unsuspecting dupes bought houses at the top of the market. These were the greater fools. They actually believed the drivel being spewed forth by the knuckleheaded anchors on CNBC. They actually believed the propaganda being preached by David Lereah from the National Association of Realtors (Always the Best Time to Buy) about home prices never dropping. They actually believed Bennie Bernanke when he said:

The Real Economic Cost of Government Is Spending, So What Do You Want to Cut? / Economics / Government Spending

By: Paul_L_Kasriel

One of the biggest issues in this mid-term election is the desire to pare the rate of growth in federal government spending. Economically speaking, this is spot on because the real economic cost of government is how much it spends. Bear in mind, the federal government always gets the funds it needs to pay for its expenditures - through taxation, borrowing and/or "printing." The more the federal government spends, the more productive resources it directs, leaving fewer resources at the disposal of the private sector.

Deflation Trend That's Become Too Obvious To Ignore / Economics / Deflation

By: EWI

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAs the biggest credit bubble in history continues to shrink, consumer prices have stayed flat over the past several months, meaning there is no sign of inflation to come, despite growing commitments from the U.S. government.

So what's keeping inflation at bay, given all the stimulus money promised? The answer: Deflation -- an overwhelming urge for consumers to liquidate their assets for cash. And this new economic phase is finally becoming too obvious to ignore, as explained in recent commentary from the world's largest technical analysis firm.

Why Government Reports Aren’t the Only Indicators of Economic Health / Economics / Economic Statistics

By: Jared_Levy

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhen I am not traveling to New York City, Philly or Chicago, I work mostly from my home office. I tend to look out the window while I write and trade. I get a nice view of the Dallas skyline and trees, but I also have a fairly clear view of the neighborhood dry cleaner, whom I have been going to for many years. Over the past year, I have noticed the parking lot fairly empty and the drive-through window not as busy as it used to be.

Hooray, the U.S. Recession Is Over! / Economics / Recession 2008 - 2010

By: Robert_Murphy

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleSome days, it's embarrassing to be a professional economist. On Monday, the National Bureau of Economic Research (NBER) officially declared that our recession had ended — 15 months ago. Yes, that's right, just as more and more analysts are worried about the economy imploding again, the NBER announces that the recession ended back in June 2009. The whole episode underscores the crudity of mainstream economics.

Dollar Devaluation, Debt Default, Austerity, Depression and Growing Inflation / Economics / Great Depression II

By: Bob_Chapman

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAs quantitative easing again gets underway the failure of QE1 becomes more obvious. The crisis worsens and the illusion of any recovery is light years away. Over the past three years almost $13 trillion that we know about has been thrown down a rat hole to bail out banking, Wall Street, insurance and selected elitist entities. The dollar figure is probably much higher. We will never know, because the privately owned Federal Reserve makes its own rules. Everything they do is a state secret. The five successful quarters were only a mirage. The funds have been vaporized among lending and financial institutions worldwide.

Is a Reduction in Unemployment the Key to US Economic Recovery? / Economics / Economic Recovery

By: Frank_Shostak

Inflationary Understatement / Economics / Inflation

By: Richard_Daughty

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe Market Oracle newsletter jumps into the inflation-deflation debate, and says, "Debt deleveraging deflation completely ignores the fact that we are NOT living in the 1930's, but in a globalised world economy that is seeing the convergence of real GDPs where the developing world is eating up the [world's] resources at a faster pace then the west is cutting back on consumption."

The End of the Great Recession is Official / Economics / Economic Recovery

By: Asha_Bangalore

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe Business Cycle Dating Committee of the National Bureau of Economic Research indicated today that the recession which commenced in December 2007 ended in June 2009. The 18-month recession is the longest on record in the post-war period. The 1973-75 and 1981-82 recessions lasted 16 months. The announcement is an official ritual; for all practical purposes, it has been widely known the recession ended in the middle of 2009. The important difference to note is that the pace of economic growth in the current recovery is significantly slower compared with the recoveries following the 1973-75 and 1981-82 recessions.

The Economics of Immigration and Employment, Do Immigrants Steal Jobs? / Economics / Immigration
