Brazil’s Infrastructure Plays Catch Up / Economics / Brazil

By: Frank_Holmes

Brazil has become one of the globe’s beacons of growth but in terms of infrastructure investment it needs to catch up to its peers.

As you can see from the two charts below, Brazil’s investment in its infrastructure has lagged that of emerging market leaders India and China, but it’s also lagged other Latin American countries like Peru and Mexico. In terms of investment-to-GDP ratio, Brazil averaged 17 percent over the past five years, according to a Morgan Stanley report, far behind China (44 percent), India (38 percent) and Russia (24 percent).

Dodge Possible Debt Debacle With These Economic Stimulus Plan Safety Plays / Economics / Economic Stimulus

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMartin Hutchinson writes: U.S. President Barack Obama's $862 billion stimulus plan, passed in great haste after his inauguration, has now revealed its true costs and benefits. It didn't revive the U.S. economy - that bottomed about May 2009, before a dollar of it had been spent. Further, combined with the mad wave of similar "stimulus" outlays across the planet, it has destabilized global bond markets - which may end up being very expensive indeed.

Sovereign Debt Crisis, Have We Crossed the Point of No Return? / Economics / Global Debt Crisis

By: Philipp_Bagus

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleA specter is haunting the world, and especially Europe: the specter of a sovereign insolvency. The acute sovereign-debt crisis is largely the result of government interventions in response to the financial crisis.

As Austrian business-cycle theory explains, the credit expansion of the fractional-reserve-banking system had caused an unsustainable boom. At artificially low interest rates, additional investment projects were undertaken even though there was no corresponding increase in real savings.

New Zealand Said No to Economic Death by Debt, Why Can't We? / Economics / Global Debt Crisis

By: LewRockwell

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleFloy Lilley writes: Anyone reading news feeds on the global financial crisis is painfully aware that the world as we know it is rapidly destabilizing. Bottomless debt is gaping open in unfamiliar terrain like crevasses in Ruth Glacier near the end of June.

Europe debt woes have pummeled the euro and Asian shares. Eurozone taxpayers are now extremely exposed to high credit risk, leading to a panic in the world markets, as foreign holders of Greek and Portuguese debt have seized on emergency intervention by the European Central Bank to scamper out of their positions. The chief executive of Deutsche Bank said it would require “incredible efforts” by Greece for its debt to ever be repaid in full.

Eurozone Crisis at Point of Maximum Danger, Great Depression II? / Economics / Euro-Zone

By: Mike_Whitney

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDebt woes in Greece have sent bond yields soaring and increased the prospect of sovereign default. A restructuring of Greek debt will deal a blow to lenders in Germany and France that are insufficiently capitalized to manage the losses.  Finance ministers, EU heads-of-state and the European Central Bank (ECB) have responded forcefully to try to avert another banking meltdown that could plunge the world back into recession.

Economic Meltdown, Only Entrepreneurs Can Save Us / Economics / Recession 2008 - 2010

By: LewRockwell

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleJim Davies writes: As the absurd machinery of government staggers daily towards total breakdown, to be "rescued" however temporarily by this or that stimulus of printed money, I'm hearing the view that the end is near, that freedom is just around the corner, that the collapse of the statist paradigm is almost upon us. Please, not so fast!

By: Brian_Bloom

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleFor those who are still in denial regarding the extent of the economic/financial issues we are facing, the table below should put things into perspective.

HyperInflation Threat Real or Not? / Economics / HyperInflation

By: Sol_Palha

"Try not to become a man of success but rather to become a man of value." ~ Albert Einstein

Higher Gold and Petrol prices are one of the clearest signs that inflationary forces are gathering steam. Do not confuse inflationary forces with inflation; inflation is defined as an increase in the supply of money.

The "Eurozone Coup d’Etat", Trend Towards Global Systemic Economic Crisis / Economics / Euro-Zone

By: Global_Research

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleJust as anticipated by LEAP/E2020 in issues N°40 (December 2009) and N°42 (February 2010), spring 2010 really marks a tipping point of the global systemic crisis, characterized by a sudden expansion due to the intolerable size of public deficits (see issue N° 39, November 2009) and the inexistence of the recovery, so often announced (see issue N°37, September 2009). Besides, the dramatic social and political consequences of this development clearly reflect the beginning of the process of global geopolitical dislocation as anticipated in issue N°32 (February 2009).

Inflation Destroys Savings / Economics / Inflation

By: MISES

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleEverything that is done by a government against the purchasing power of the monetary unit is, under present conditions, done against the middle classes and the working classes of the population. Only these people don't know it. And this is the tragedy. The tragedy is that the unions and all these people are supporting a policy that makes all their savings valueless. And this is the great danger of the whole situation.

Rationality and the Free Market Economy / Economics / Economic Theory

By: Douglas_French

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticlePeople seem to do the craziest things when it comes to money. Whether it's chasing stock-market bubbles or paying good money after bad on a home that's hopelessly underwater, the idea of individuals acting as homo economicus seems far-fetched. Only in the ivory-tower world of rational-expectations theory does one find perfectly rational humans making judgments using all available information to satisfy their subjective ends.

UK Inflation Hits New High of CPI 3.7%, RPI 5.3%, Mervyn King Writes Another Excuses Letter / Economics / Inflation

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article UK Inflation has yet again hit a new high of CPI 3.7% up from last months inflation peak of 3.4%, with RPI rocketing even higher to an eye watering 5.3%, a level not seen since 1991. The academic economists were again taken by surprise. The Bank of England's failure in its primary duty of targeting inflation has prompted the Governor Mervyn King to write another letter to this time the new Chancellor George Osbourne that will again state for the fifth time this year that the rise in inflation above 3% was temporary and not to worry, it should come down, eventually (fingers crossed).
