IMF Inadverte​ntly Condemns The Eurozone, No Recovery Economic Until 2018! / Economics / Great Depression II

By: Raul_I_Meijer

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleNo global recovery until 2018, says Oliver Blanchard at portfolio.hu.: It’s not yet a lost decade... But it will surely take at least a decade from the beginning of the crisis for the world economy to get back to decent shape.

Well, that makes it easy then, you would think. Solves a lot of problems in one go. All bailouts and loans and other measures can now be halted and reversed when and where possible. Since there is no way our central banks and governments can keep on doing what they have done for another 6 years (yeah, I know lots of you doubt that, but there's just no way).

U.S. Economy Never Really Recovered Since 2007-2009 Financial Crisis / Economics / Great Depression II

By: EWI

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleSeveral signs suggest economic contraction instead of expansion.

The first was recent front-page news: 8.1% August jobless rate. The number would have been higher, but it excludes people who gave up the job search.

The Quantifornication of U.S. Housing Market, Banks and Economy / Economics / Quantitative Easing

By: Richard_Mills

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOverheated US housing prices started dropping in 2006. Homeowners were going underwater (they owed more than the house was worth) and many had questionable credit - "fog the mirror loans" were common, if you breathed you got a loan. *Banks sold these mortgages to agencies like Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. They bundled the mortgages with other loans bearing similar interest rates and then sold them as Mortgage-backed securities (MBS), so called because their value was backed or secured by the value of the underlying mortgages.

Tracking World Hyperinflation - The Data from Argentina to Zimbabwe / Economics / HyperInflation

By: Submissions

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleSteve H. Hanke writes: Hyperinflation is an economic malady that arises under extreme conditions: war, political mismanagement, the transition from a command to market-based economy. There are barriers to the recording and publication of reliable inflation statistics. Overcoming these barriers is an arduous and painstaking process. This article and attached table – an abbreviated version of a Cato Working Paper – supply, for the first time, data on all 56 episodes of hyperinflation, including several which had previously gone unreported.

Hyperinflation Has Arrived In Iran / Economics / HyperInflation

By: Submissions

Steve H. Hanke writes: Since the U.S. and E.U. first enacted sanctions against Iran, in 2010, the value of the Iranian rial (IRR) has plummeted, imposing untold misery on the Iranian people. When a currency collapses, you can be certain that other economic metrics are moving in a negative direction, too. Indeed, using new data from Iran’s foreign-exchange black market, I estimate that Iran’s monthly inflation rate has reached 69.6%. With a monthly inflation rate this high (over 50%), Iran is undoubtedly experiencing hyperinflation.

Economic Reforms in India Likely To Stick This Time / Economics / India

By: Benjamin_Shepherd

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIndia has always taken a protectionist approach to managing its economy, initially out of a certain necessity and more recently as a result of populist politics.

The initial necessity arose out of a desire to develop a stronger internal economy by fostering small businesses that cater to indigenous tastes and demands. That’s no surprise, given the huge cultural disparities within the country’s regions, especially between the more cosmopolitan and richer south and the poorer north.

What Parenting Teaches us About Economics / Economics / Economic Theory

By: William_Bancroft

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleRecent BBC documentaries on the great economists have created quite a buzz in the UK. No doubt the shows are proving popular on the BBC’s international channels too. The sorry state of the global economy and withered trust in economics today prompts another look at the giants of this social science. The usual names are re-examined, including John Maynard Keynes and Friedrich Hayek.

U.S. Counting Down to Hyperinflation / Economics / HyperInflation

By: GoldSilverWorlds

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleJohn Williams, who is the founder of ShadowStats.com, stated during a recent interview that the US is on track to become victim of hyperinflation the latest in 2014. He believes that “open ended QE” (which is nothing more than monetizing debt) is the key problem. He explains there is an annual deficit of 5 trillion dollar per year in the US, which includes the unfunded liabilities.  He declares the situation “beyond containment”. Central planners are responding to the current economic problems by simply increasing the amount of printed money. John Williams his expectations are that  we’ll soon see a heavy sell off in the dollar, quickly followed by a significant first spike in inflation. That will ultimately lead to  hyperinflation the latest somewhere in 2014. We are just before the kick off of inflation.

Quadrillion Dollar Derivatives Market 20 Times Total Global Economy GDP / Economics / Derivatives

By: John_Rolls

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleJohn Rolls Submits: The Derivatives market was only 500 trillion in 2008 when it almost blew up in all our faces. Now it is 3 times that size, what a monster balloon! when it blows no one survives that has money in the banks or in the mattress. You better start investing in silver and gold which is real money not fiat. Financial hell is coming if you put your faith in the banks! .Yes it’s about capitalism but notice he also uses the politically incorrect word MORAL, no system of any type is worth using without basic ethical and moral principles as the basis of it. Needless to say, GREED runs this system and has for quite a while and unless and until honor and virtue replace it…the system will continue to increase unpayable debt and bring the economic system to a tragic and very messy ruin.

Balancing Lenders and Borrowers is the Most Economically Stimulating / Economics / Economic Stimulus

By: John_Handbury

Keeping interest rates low has always been perceived to be stimulating.  This is based on the premise that borrowers are more inclined to borrow when rates are low.  This is undeniably true, however, this simplification totally removes the lenders from the equation, which have an equal role in stimulation.

By definition the maximum activity (thereby stimulation) occurs when the number of borrowers is the same as the number of lenders.  By definition this occurs at the MARKET PRICE.  To artificially move rates either way from the market price suppresses either one group or the other and thereby de-stimulates.

Keynsian Animal Spirits / Economics / Economic Theory

By: Alasdair_Macleod

The BBC is running a three-part series on notable economists, starting with Keynes. There were a number of errors made, but I shall ignore those and address two Keynesian fallacies. The first was that Keynes correctly anticipated the economic and political consequences of the Versailles Treaty, which inflicted punitive reparations on Germany: this was true. It was bizarrely extrapolated to the current situation, concluding that Germany must reduce its prosperity and economic power to a level closer to that of the other Eurozone countries in the interests of economic balance.

Why QE3 Won’t Jumpstart the Economy and What Would / Economics / Quantitative Easing

By: Ellen_Brown

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe economy could use a good dose of “aggregate demand”—new spending money in the pockets of consumers—but QE3 won’t do it.  Neither will it trigger the dreaded hyperinflation.  In fact, it won’t do much at all.  There are better alternatives.   

The Fed’s announcement on September 13, 2012, that it was embarking on a third round of quantitative easing has brought the “sound money” crew out in force, pumping out articles with frighting titles such as “QE3 Will Unleash’ Economic Horror’ On The Human Race.”  The Fed calls QE an asset swap, swapping Fed-created dollars for other assets on the banks’ balance sheets.  But critics call it “reckless money printing” and say it will inevitably produce hyperinflation.  Too much money will be chasing too few goods, forcing prices up and the value of the dollar down.

Inflation and Inflation Expectations Analysis / Economics / Inflation

By: Asha_Bangalore

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleSince the Federal Reserve initiated its third round of quantitative easing (QE3) last week, critics have expressed concern that the policy would ultimately be inflationary. Investors also seemed to sense a higher risk in this area; gold and other commodities have rallied as portfolios seek to hedge against this outcome. In response, several Federal Reserve officials have been out defending the central bank’s action.
