A Recession Indicator for Independent Thinkers / Economics / Recession

By: F_F_Wiley

Last month we took sides in the ongoing debate about the Great Yield Curve Scare—we argued that the curve hasn’t flattened enough to deliver a strong recession signal at this point in time. We showed that the recent flattening is similar to those that occurred at various stages of the last nine business-cycle expansions, but usually before the midpoints. In other words, history places today’s curve in an early- or mid-cycle position, not late-cycle as commonly believed. We concluded that the recent flattening isn’t all that interesting as far as the business cycle is concerned.

Just A Cyclic Economic Ripple Or Structural Long Term Recession ? / Economics / Recession

By: Andrew_McKillop


Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleFor global media, the 2008 crisis was signalled by the so-called "near collapse" of banks, insurers and mortgage lenders like the UK's RBS and Northern Rock, the USA's JP Morgan, AIG and a string of smaller players like Bear Stearns, but was above all symbolized by the outright collapse of Lehman Brothers in the autumn of 2008. Since the start of 2012, revealing the supposed "surprising weakness" of the OECD economies, and the more (or really) surprising weakness of the Chinese and Indian economies, the events of recent months ram home the basic facts. Emerging from what in 2008 was a finance-sector crisis in the OECD, easily explained by the perils of casino capitalism operating on debt to get and then lose its betting chips, the subsequent and present financial collapse: 1) is systemic not temporary; and 2) is global, affecting every country in the world. Through globalization of the economy, and supposed "global integrated capitalism" we now have a globally integrated catastrophe.

Recession Signals: Industrial Production September Decline / Economics / Recession

By: Joseph_Brusuelas

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhile, the service sector does account for well over 80% of overall economic activity, industrial production often provides a very timely indicator implying the end of the business cycle and the onset of a recession. The pro-cyclical nature of the report provides a well-timed and sensitive indicator of the current rate of growth in overall output.

World Recession 2009 as a Result of Peak Oil / Economics / Recession

By: Brian_Bloom

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhilst most people are vaguely aware that oil is important to the world economy, few understand the true impact of the recent rise in the oil price.

In 1998 the heads of state of the USA and Australia failed to ratify the Kyoto protocols. They were trying to protect their country's economies. Ironically, they engineered a situation where not only is the US economy under greater threat than it would have been had our leaders ratified the protocols, the entire world economy is now seriously threatened.

Economic Statistics Con Game to be Exposed, Bigger Impact than Housing Bust / Economics / Recession

By: Prieur_du_Plessis

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleSoaring oil prices were mostly to blame for the past week's stock market sell-off, but renewed concerns about US economic growth, corporate earnings and mounting angst about inflation pressures also featured prominently in determining the market's fate.

David Fuller ( Fullermoney ) commented as follows: “As the world's most important commodity by far, this surge in the oil price is bearish for the majority of stock markets. Consequently I would assume that rallies seen since March have either been capped or are unlikely to make much upward progress until investors see evidence that crude oil has commenced a medium-term correction.”

California Leads Way For the US Consumer Bust / Economics / Recession

By: Mike_Shedlock

The International Herald Tribune reports Californians leading the way to consumer bust .

As it did when the housing bubble began to burst, California is leading the way in the next leg: a consumer bust.

Squeezed by rising unemployment, inflation in food and energy costs and plunging home values, Californians are cutting back on spending. Besides causing woes for state and local government, the cutback is giving California's economy another knock and makes further job losses, home repossessions and banking problems more likely.

US Recession 2000 Can tell us a lot about today's Economy / Economics / Recession

By: Gerard_Jackson

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleSome readers have been asking how "Austrian economic analysis held up during the last recession". Brilliantly, is the answer. It successfully described the emergence of the American recession and the pattern of rising unemployment and spending neatly fitted the Austrian explanation for the boom-bust cycle. Austrianism claimed that the contraction started in the higher stages of production and then worked its way down the production structure. Figures from the NAPM (National Association of Purchasing Management) in the middle 2000 gave considerable support to this view.

By: Ronald_R_Cooke

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleA preliminary report from the United States Department of Commerce, Bureau of Economic Analysis (BEA), claims American Current-dollar GDP -- the market value of the nation's output of goods and services – increased 3.15 percent or $111.0 billion in the first quarter of 2008 (versus the last quarter of 2007), to a level of $14,185.2 billion. That economic performance equates to an average annual year over year increase of 4.67% against Q1 2007.

US Fed Monetary Policy- Bernanke Gets It Wrong / Economics / Recession

By: Gerard_Jackson

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleSince the 2000 election America's leftwing mainstream media has tried to pump out a stream of bad economic news. According to this mob of political bigots recessions only happen under Republican presidents, completely ignoring the easily researched fact that the 2000 recession began under President Clinton. Now that so many indicators have turned negative the media are having a collective orgasm.

US in Recession Despite Manipulated Employment and Inflation Statistics / Economics / Recession

By: John_Mauldin

  • Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleLies, Damn Lies, and Statistics
  • Who Is Inflating the Numbers?
  • Honey, I Blew up the Employment Numbers
  • A Black Swan in Food
  • Housing Numbers Are Better Than I Wrote

"There are three kinds of lies: lies, damn lies, and statistics." – commonly attributed to Benjamin Disraeli

If we are to believe the government statistics, the GDP of the US grew by 0.6% in the first quarter of this year. And unemployment actually fell. And there were only 20,000 job losses. This week we do a quick review of why the statistics can be so misleading. We also look at why I was wrong about the housing number last week, and I highlight what could be a very serious Black Swan lurking in the agricultural bushes. It should make for an interesting letter. It's hard to know where to begin, there are just so many tempting targets; so let's take the statistical aberrations in the order they came out this week.

How to Survive a Recession and Make Profits / Stock-Markets / Recession

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDespite frantic efforts by the US Government and central bank to avoid a recession during a Presidential election year, the US is heading for a protracted recessionary period that is expected to be worse than the last two recessions as the credit crisis and housing bust continue.

The focus for investors now should be to realise that what worked during the 2003 to 2007 stocks bull market is expected to and actually is unraveling as the boom sectors such as financial's are in a bear market.

At the Gates of Recession / Economics / Recession

By: Regent_Markets

High yield spreads remain stubbornly high despite dramatic interventions from UK and US central banks. Banks are hording cash due to mistrust and fear over who will make the next big write down. Nationwide, the UK's largest building society, put up the rates on some mortgages despite there being a reasonable probability of a rate cut on the 10th of April.

US Economy Hit by Monetary Storm / Economics / Recession

By: Gerard_Jackson

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe current monetary crisis has brought forth an avalanche of opinions on what President Bush and the Fed need to do to arrest the dollar's decline and prevent a recession. But what really needs to be done? The quarterly Anderson Forecast by the University of California at Los Angeles is betting that there will not be a recession, though there will be a significant downturn in the rate of growth. Of course, there is the usual caveat that if consumers reduce their purchases of big-ticket items this could bring on a recession.

Stock Market Pricing in a Recession / Stock-Markets / Recession

By: Paul_J_Nolte

Investors are beginning to price into the markets a recession. The non-farm payroll figures out last Friday were worse than the street expected, showing a loss in jobs that for many, solidified a recessionary outlook. Calls for more rate relief from the Fed pushed the expectations for not just a half percent cut in rates later this month, but a strong likelihood of three quarters, if not a full percent cut. While a nice thing to do to get the economy going, the impact of any rate cut this month will not likely be felt until early 2009 due to the lag effect of changes in monetary policy.

The US Economies Path to Recession / Economics / Recession

In March of 2007, I predicted America would have a recession before the end of 2008. (see Warning: Recession Ahead at http://www.theculturaleconomist blog.blogspot.com/ . At that point in time, my thoughts were greeted with a certain amount of – shall we say – skepticism.  Well.  Here we are one year later.  It would appear the number of skeptics has decreased.

Why the United States Will Go Into Recession / Economics / Recession

By: Gerard_Jackson

If my email is anything to go by, there are a lot of worried and confused people out there. Basically most want to know why if the US economy is going to slide into recession. Of course it will. The question is when. I have to exercise caution here because I haven't had the time during the last couple of weeks to take a much closer look at the economic trends. Since Bush won the 2000 election the media has done nothing but report economic doom. For them, predicting a recession is bit like predicting rain a few weeks hence. They one will eventually develop, they just hope Bush is still president when this happens.
