Likely Economic Export Shocks From Europe / Economics / Global Economy

By: Asha_Bangalore

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe European Central Bank (ECB) lowered the policy rate 25 bps to 1.25% on November 3, 2011. The possibility of a mild recession was cited as the reason for monetary policy easing. By implication, the recession should translate into fewer exports of the U.S. to Euroland. The share of US exports to the European Union (all 25 member nations) has dropped to 17.7% in August 2011 from a peak of 23.2% in February 2009.

The Continuing Zombification of the US Economy / Economics / US Economy

By: Bill_Bonner

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWe have been exploring the zombification of the US economy. Major industries – finance, health, education and defense – have been taken over by zombies, parasites whose real interest is to transfer wealth to themselves, from the part of the economy that remains productive.

As the economy becomes more zombified, the part of it dominated by these non-productive industries increases, leaving fewer resources for the productive part. And as the productive part weakens, so does the entire economy’s ability to produce real wealth, or grow its way out of debt.

America's First Deflationary Depression: Is a Bigger One Ahead? / Economics / Great Depression II

By: EWI

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDon't blame Martin Van Buren for America's first deflationary depression. Social mood rode higher in the saddle than did our 8th President, who only stood 5' 6".

Elected in 1836, by the time Van Buren assumed office in March 1837 a speculative bubble had burst and a banking crisis was at hand (sound familiar?) -- the national mood had turned south and the "Panic of 1837" followed. Van Buren was known as "The Little Magician," but he could not pull an economic recovery out of the hat. He met defeat seeking a second term.

Stalling German Economy Will Throw Petrol on Eurozone Debt Fire / Economics / Euro-Zone

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDavid Zeiler writes: Germany's economy is slowing dramatically, an unwelcome turn of events that will put even more strain on existing fractures in the European Union (EU) as it struggles to cope with its ongoing sovereign debt crisis.

Last month a consortium of eight leading economic institutes slashed their forecast for German economic growth in 2012 by more than half, from 2% to 0.8%.

Lately the BLS statisticians had not resorted to this and had actually been running at estimates a little more to what one might expect in a business slump.

Solutions to the Global Economic Crisis: Keynesian Myths, Hopes and Illusions / Economics / Global Debt Crisis

By: Global_Research

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIsmael Hossein-zadeh writes: The Keynesian view that the government can fine tune the economy through “appropriate” fiscal and monetary policies to maintain continuous growth at or near full employment is based on the idea that capitalism can be controlled by the state and managed by professional economists from government departments, that is, capitalism run by “experts” in the interest of all. Economic policy making according to this view is largely a matter of technical expertise or economic know-how, that is, a matter of choice.

Stupid Government Tricks, Let’s Tax the Millionaires, Where Will the Jobs Come From? / Economics / US Economy

By: John_Mauldin

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleI find myself in Liam's taxi on the beautiful drive to Kilkenny through the Irish countryside for a few hours this very early Friday morning, so what better time to begin writing about employment than in a country that is struggling, just as most of the developed world is, to find good jobs for its people. I'm on my way to a conference that will talk about the economics that is driving the world's leading governments to distraction in Cannes. Is Greece going to vote? Take the money? Will it be an orderly default? Should Ireland default? Whatever I write, the situation will change as soon as I hit the send button tonight. (For the record, I think Greece should have a referendum. You don't go into what they are getting ready to suffer without national buy-in. No elitist deals. Put it to the people to decide, one way or the other.)

Global Economy is at the Mercy of Tiny Greece? / Economics / Global Debt Crisis

By: Sy_Harding

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIt’s incredible when you think about it.

Greece is one of the smallest countries and economies in the world. Its population is 11 million people out of the 492 million in the combined European Union countries, and compared to 312 million in the U.S., 1.3 billion in China, 1.2 billion in India.

U.S. Jobs Market Won't Normalize Until At Least 2023 / Economics / Employment

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDavid Zeiler writes: Disgruntled American workers have yet another reason for pessimism: At the current rate of job creation, the U.S. unemployment rate will not fall back to "normal" levels - below 6% - until 2023.

Through most of this year the U.S. economy has managed to create about 119,000 jobs per month, but that's barely enough to keep pace with population growth. Only job creation levels of well over 120,000 jobs per month will drive down the 9.1% unemployment rate.

Is Debt Necessary for Economic Recovery? / Economics / Economic Theory

By: Robert_Murphy

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleSince the crisis began, one of the dominant themes in arguments over proper government policy has been the Keynesian view that it is crucial to prop up total spending. The added twist during this particular recession is the crushing burden of private-sector debt, which allegedly makes it all the more urgent for governments to run fiscal deficits.

Look at the U.S. Postal Service and see the future of the Federal Government / Economics / Economic Theory

By: Gary_North

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleNiall Ferguson is my favorite Establishment analyst, because he is an historian who understands a lot about free markets. He writes for the literati. He starred in a PBS series that was worth viewing, and another is scheduled in 2012. He teaches at Harvard University and the Harvard Business School.

He thinks America is running an empire, and he thinks it will not survive much longer. As with all empires, it is going to run out of wealth to support it. So, when he wrote a piece for the Daily Beast, Newsweek, I read it.

Why 7 Billionth Person's Birthday Is Nothing to Celebrate / Economics / Demographics

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMartin Hutchinson writes: The world's 7 billionth person is likely to be born today (Monday).

However, this birthday isn't something to celebrate.

Since the global population passed 6 billion only in late 1999, we've added more than 80 million people each year on average. And the environmental footprint of those people is expanding rapidly as emerging market populations modernize.

Is the U.S. Consumer Spending Surge a 'Dance of Economic Death'? / Economics / Double Dip Recession

By: Clif_Droke

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe latest economic headline came as a surprise to the pundits, though it actually makes perfect sense from a psychological standpoint. On Friday the Associated Press informed us of "Americans spending more with income almost flat," per the headline. At first glance this seems almost counterintuitive, yet the sub-heading of this A.P. story put it into perspective: "Americans find tiny returns on savings and decide to spend."

Happy 7th Billion Person Planet Earth / Economics / Demographics

By: Trader_Mark

If the United Nations estimates are anywhere near correct, today marks the day the world's population hits 7 billion.  Could be off a few days one way or the other, but you get the gist.  I actually did a story about this in 2008 - looks like it came a few months earlier than predicted!  [Jun 20, 2008: World Population to Hit 7 Billion by 2012] Obviously this is not a 'fast money' trading event, but considering it was just twelve years ago the planet hit 6 billion, it's a pretty amazing milestone.  Projections are for another two billion in about 2 generations (2050ish).  From an investing perspective the growth of the world's middle class is an important development, as is the wage/labor pressure from hundreds of millions continuing to flood the world's labor markets.  Tom Stevenson from Fidelity takes a look at three key outcomes from this, some of which we've discussed quite a bit a few years ago.  Note - Nebraska farmland is up 20-30% year over year, as the 'farmland' trade is one of the big long term winners.
