Decline in Bank Lending: Business Investment in America is almost at a Standstill / Economics / Economic Recovery

By: Bob_Chapman

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOne of the reasons for less bank lending is the almost non-existent market for securitized bonds. Investors have so many bad loans on their books that they refuse to commit to further risky investments. This means banks are forced to hold this toxic paper on their books and that inhibits them from lending at higher levels. If the Fed had not purchased $1.7 trillion of this toxic junk many banks would currently be in bankruptcy. Thus, there still are trillions in these bad loans on the books of many financial institutions and they cannot be sold and they are clogging up the system, and there is no end in sight for the problem.

UK Inflation Soars CPI 3.4%, RPI 4.4%, Bank of England Forecast Wrong as Usual / Economics / Inflation

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleUK Inflation CPI surged higher for March from 3% to 3.4% taking the academic economists that populate the mainstream press by surprise against consensus views of inflation rising to 3.1%.

The Bank of England's forecasts for inflation to fall have yet again been shown to be an abysmal failure when it comes to inflation forecasting and targeting where the mantra of UK inflation being at 2% in 2 years time only having been achieved approx 4% of the time, i.e. there is a 96% probability that inflation in 2 years time will NOT be at 2%.

Rebalanced UK Economy and Economic Growth To Fix Britain's Finances / Economics / UK Economy

By: John_Mauldin

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleLong time readers know that I am a huge fan of Martin Wolf, economist and columnist for the Financial Times. His writing is the reason to get the Pink Lady (as the Financial Times is known) as far as I am concerned.

This week's Outside the Box has two columns back to back from last week from Wolf, talking about the problems in Britain which look like the same problem all over the developed world. Wolf argues (rather cogently) that the answer is to increase exports and for a further weakening of the pound. Quoting:

America’s Economic Recovery Is a Rotten Sham / Economics / Economic Recovery

By: Justice_Litle

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMore evidence has arisen that the "strategic default" consumer spending thesis is correct - and that the economic recovery on the whole is based on a rotten sham.

The economic "recovery" we are now witnessing is based on theft, greed and deceit. It's a giant rip-off, a rotten sham. In this sleazy imitation of a free market economy, liars, cheats and deadbeats are the ones getting rewarded.

California Unemployment Soars, Underemployment at 24% / Economics / Recession 2008 - 2010

By: Global_Research

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDr Housing Bubble writes: California has reached another unfortunate record.  The headline unemployment rate pushed up to a record breaking 12.6 percent.  This translates to 2.3 million Californians completely out of work.  We also have a large number that are working part-time but would like full-time employment.  When we look at the California budget and economy we cannot separate out jobs from the condition of the housing market.

Europe Sovereign Debt Crisis, British Pound Sterling Collapse? / Economics / Global Debt Crisis

By: Global_Research

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleJust as LEAP/E2020 anticipated many months ago, and in contrast to the reports coming out of the media and the « experts » during these past few weeks, Greece really has the Eurozone behind it to give support and credibility (especially concerning good management in the future, the only guarantee of an escape from a damnable cycle of growing public deficits (1)). There will not be, then, any Greek default of payment even if the commotion over the Greek situation really is an indication of a growing awareness that money to finance the huge Western public debt is becoming increasingly difficult to find: a situation now « untenable » as a recent report of the Bank of International Settlements underlined.

Economic Booms and Busts, the Punditry's Terrible Grasp of Economics / Economics / Economic Theory

By: Gerard_Jackson

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhat makes manufacturing an important part of the boom-bust phenomenon is the crucial role that time plays in production. Unfortunately, not only is this fact ignored by our economic commentariat they also adamantly refuse to even recognise its existence, just as they refuse to recognise that there exists a capital structure. (What makes this attitude peculiar is that some of these people claim to have studied von Hayek. The content of their articles strongly suggests otherwise.)

U.S. Economy and Interest Rate Forecasts Update / Economics / US Economy

By: Paul_L_Kasriel

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIt has been a while since we last wrote an economic and interest rate update - February 22, to be exact. There are two reasons for the absence of a March update - heavy travel schedule and not much new to say on the subject. In the broad scheme of things, the only significant change to the forecast is with respect to inflation. Back in February, we were expecting the CPI to increase by 2.5% in 2010 on a Q4/Q4 basis. Now we are forecasting an increase of only 1.7%.

Greece Emergency Debt Bailout Signals New Stage in Global Economic Crisis / Economics / Global Debt Crisis

By: Global_Research

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleStefan Steinberg writes: The economic crisis precipitated by the crash of Lehman Brothers in 2008 is entering a new stage, as European states hastily organise their first-ever bailout of a member of the European Union. The frantic efforts at the weekend to cobble together a European rescue package for Greece in collaboration with the International Monetary Fund came after intense pressure from rating agencies and intensified speculation by traders betting that the Greek government would default on its debt obligations.
