Inflation and Government Deficits, Milton Friedman's View / Economics / Inflation

By: Paul_L_Kasriel

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleBefore getting started on this month's essay, I would like to say something about last month's chart show. I received a number of favorable comments about the different format. I have to admit that my ego was bruised a bit. I thought you liked my prosaic prose. My ego notwithstanding, I will try to give the customers what they want more often - just not every month. The reason for not providing a chart show every month is that not enough changes that frequently to warrant such. So, this month you are stuck with the prosaic prose. And because not that much has changed from last month save for stronger-than-previously expected consumer spending in the third quarter, I am going to discuss two issues that are getting a lot of ink of late rather than spending time discussing the updated forecast.

Economic Recovery Euphoria, Ignorance Is Bliss / Economics / Economic Recovery

By: Peter_Schiff

While all the talk at present is about economic corners turned and markets charging ahead, no one is paying much notice to an American economy deteriorating before our eyes. These myopic commentators seem to be simply moving past the now almost-universally held conclusion that before the crash of 2008, our economy was on an unsustainable course. If these imbalances had been corrected, then perhaps I too would be joining in the euphoria. But evidence abounds that we have not veered at all from that dangerous path.

The Flip Side of a Jobless Economic Recovery / Economics / Employment

By: Andy_Sutton

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticlePerhaps one of the most preposterous statements made during the ongoing financial crisis was by Ben Bernanke when he stated that we would have a ‘jobless recovery’. Certainly this is not a new term, but that doesn’t change the fact that in concept, the idea that a real recovery can occur with rising unemployment seems pretty ludicrous. Again, the devil is in the details and it all comes back to how you define your terminology and ask “A recovery for whom?”

Greenspan a Decade Behind the Curve / Economics / Central Banks

By: Brady_Willett

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleFormer Federal Reserve Chairman Alan Greenspan is the worst Fed boss in history, but boy-oh-boy how we loved to watch him smile. We were so attracted to Mr. Greenspan’s girlish grin, in fact, that he could say just about anything and people would eat it up: “I guess I should warn you, if I turn out to be particularly clear, you've probably misunderstood what I've said”. How delightfully playful!  He really must be the world’s best central banker!

Reviving the Economy with Publicly Owned Banks / Economics / Credit Crisis 2009

By: Ellen_Brown

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe credit crunch is getting worse on Main Street, despite a Wall Street bailout that is now in the trillions of dollars. The Federal Reserve's charts show that "base money" is rapidly expanding - meaning coins, paper money, and commercial banks' reserves with the central bank. But the money isn't making it to where it needs to go to stimulate economic growth: into the bank accounts of American businesses and consumers. The Fed has been pumping out money to the banks, and their reserves have been growing at unprecedented rates; but the money supply in the real economy has been declining.

A Theory of Socialism and Capitalism / Economics / Economic Theory

By: Mark_Thornton

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn the wake of the downfall of the Berlin Wall, the breakup of the Soviet Union, and the emergence of capitalism in China, I was asked to teach the comparative-economic-systems class at Auburn University for the summer term in 1989. My only exposure to the topic had been as an undergraduate student, where my teacher was a Cold War–era professor who concentrated almost exclusively on the Soviet Union. His implicit message was to fear the Soviet Union, which would soon come to smother the American dream.

Economists are Committed to the Expansion of Fiat Counterfeit Money / Economics / Fiat Currency

By: Gary_North

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhen someone announces the discovery of a new oil field, most people rejoice. There are exceptions. Owners of existing oil wells don't. Growth-hating environmentalists don't. But for most people, a new oil field means an additional supply of a scarce resource. It means slightly lower prices for the resource. What is good for the person who owns the oil field is good for almost everyone else.

Global Economic Growth Trends, The Falling Value of the U.S. Dollar / Economics / Economic Recovery

By: Hans_Wagner

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleGlobal growth trends are important factors that significantly influence the opportunities for investors. In the first article, we discussed the long-term employment problem within the United States that will cause the economic recover to be weaker than previous recoveries. In this article, we are addressing the three of the important fundamental factors encouraging U.S. dollar’s down trend.

WSJ Inane Understanding of Economic Theory / Economics / Economic Theory

By: Paul_L_Kasriel

Increase Employment the Same Way You Increase Home Sales - Every month in its survey of economists' forecasts, the WSJ asks various inane questions. In its latest survey, one of the questions had to do with what the government could do to increase employment. Now that health-care "reform" appears to be on its way to being a done deal, the D.C. issue du jour is employment stimulus. Various kinds of employer-tax incentives are in the initial stages of being proposed. Of course, the editorial board of the WSJ, which has never encountered a tax cut it did not encourage, is lobbying for a cut in the Social Security payroll tax. Good idea if the WSJ editorial board also argues for an equal cut in Social Security benefit payments. Fat chance of that occurring - i.e., a cut in Social Security benefit payments.

Ponzi Finance Deflationary Debt Deleveraging Downward Spiral Continues / Economics / Deflation

By: John_Mauldin

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleI look forward at the beginning of every quarter to receiving the Quarterly Outlook from Hoisington Investment Management. They have been prominent proponents of the view that deflation is the problem, stemming from a variety of factors, and write about their views in a very clear and concise manner. This quarter's letter is no exception, where they once again delve into the history books to bring up fresh and relevant lessons for today. This is a must read piece.

Refuting Keynes, Line-by-Line / Economics / Economic Theory

By: Gary_North

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIf I were a young man, I would not share this. I would implement it. It would become the foundation of my academic career.

The Austrian School of economics, more than any other, is built on the idea of the centrality of entrepreneurship. Ludwig von Mises explained the principle profit and loss in terms of some forecasters' ability to foresee consumer demand, and then plan to meet it at a total cost below the sales price. Successful entrepreneurs gain profit as a residual. Unsuccessful entrepreneurs gain losses.

The End of Money and the Future of Civilization / Economics / Fiat Currency

By: Richard_C_Cook

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIt’s too late for anyone to pretend that the U.S. government, whether under President Barack Obama or anyone else, can divert our nation from long-term economic decline. The U.S. is increasingly in a state of political, economic, and moral paralysis, caught as it were between the “rock” of protracted recession and the “hard place” of terminal government debt.

Building the Labor Force with Forced Labor, Government Jobs, a Road to Bigger Economic Woes / Economics / Employment

By: Michael_Pento

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe number of people eligible for work is known as the Labor Force. It should not now, nor should it ever be, thought of as the number of people government can force into labor. I would hope Robert Reich (former Labor Secretary under Bill Clinton) would understand that by now.
