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.

Economic Data to Confirm or Refute Continuing Financial Markets Optimism / Economics / Economic Recovery

By: Lloyds_TSB

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleA sense of cautious optimism prevails in financial markets. And the week ahead is rich in economic data that will provide further clues on the pace of improvement in global economic conditions. Following September’s disappointing US non-farm payrolls and ISM manufacturing data, financial markets are likely to use this week’s releases to judge whether confidence has risen too far, too quickly. The latest monetary policy decision from the Bank of Japan is also due, where we look for the key overnight call rate to remain at 0.1%.

U.S. Changing Unemployment Picture as Economy Emerges from Recession / Economics / Economic Recovery

By: Bob_Chapman

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe number of Americans filing first- time claims for unemployment benefits fell last week to the lowest since January, a sign the labor market is deteriorating more slowly as the economy emerges from the recession.

Applications fell by 33,000 to 521,000, lower than forecast, in the week ended Oct. 3, from a revised 554,000 the week before, Labor Department data showed today in Washington. The total number of people collecting unemployment insurance dropped in the prior week to the least since March.

Measuring CPI Inflation, Alice In Wonderland And The Bond Yield Paradox / Economics / Inflation

By: Andrew_Butter

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThis article is not about what inflation is, it's about how you measure one component, CPI (Consumer Price Index), there are other components; but that's the focus of this article.

Big picture to estimate CPI you work out a "basket" of goods and services that consumers buy which you think is representative of the structure of spending in an economy, and you do a survey, then you compare that with how much it would have cost to buy the same "basket" a year before.

Government Deficit Spending Killing the U.S. Free Market Economy / Economics / Economic Stimulus

By: John_Mauldin

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleKilling the Goose
What Were We Thinking?
Let's Play Turn It Around

Peggy Noonan, maybe the most gifted essayist of our time, wrote a few weeks ago about the vague concern that many of us have that the monster looming up ahead of us has the potential (my interpretation) for not just plucking a few feathers from the goose that lays the golden egg (the US free-market economy), or stealing a few more of the valuable eggs, but of actually killing the goose. Today we look at the possibility that the fiscal path of the enormous US government deficits we are on could indeed kill the goose, or harm it so badly it will make the lost decades that Japan has suffered seem like a stroll in the park.

By: Robert_Singer

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe U.S. Department of Labor Official Employment rate in September 2009 is now 90% (Unofficial rate is 75%).
And for those Americans who are still employed, they will find it harder to get that sweet deal on a new car because auto dealers won’t be competing with each other now that Brian Deese, special assistant to president Obama for economic policy made the decision (not the Chrysler bankruptcy judge), to close dealerships without regard to profitability.
