Worse than the Great Depression? / Economics / Economic Depression

By: Stephen_Lendman

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIt's a minority but growing view, including from 86-year old former Goldman Sachs chairman, John Whitehead, at the November 12 Reuters Global Finance Summit in New York. As disturbing evidence mounts, he said: "I think it would be worse than the depression. We're talking about reducing the credit of the United States of America, which is the backbone of the economic system. I see nothing but large increases in the deficit, all of which are serving to decrease the credit standing of America.

Goldilocks Economy Turns into the Humpty Dumpty Economy / Economics / Recession 2008 - 2010

By: Peter_Schiff

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleBefore the current economic crisis became apparent to all, the most popular fable used to describe America's uncanny economic resiliency was the story of Goldilocks. It was argued that our economy was skipping down a sunny path of moderate growth, low inflation and rising asset prices. However, a much better parable for our economy over the last decade would have been the story of Humpty Dumpty: a bloated, fragile shell perched on the top of a dangerously high stone wall.

British Pound Crashes to New Lows as Economic Crisis Deepens / Economics / UK Economy

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe foreign exchange markets are witnessing heavy and sustained selling of sterling which continues following the Bank of England's inflation report and statement on the economy. The British Pound has fallen below £/$1.50 to currently stand at 149.12, and to a new low against the Euro of 119. The fast developing sterling crisis illustrates the systemic failure of the Bank of England and Labour Government to manage both the economy and the credit crisis and marks another marker following last weeks panic interest rate cut of 1.5%, as the government took control of monetary policy back from the Bank of England and effectively ordered the Bank to cut interest rates by 1.5% despite inflation hitting 5.2%.

Bank of England Forecasts Deep Recession / Economics / Recession 2008 - 2010

By: Victoria_Marklew

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe Bank of England's Quarterly Inflation Report was released this morning and its outlook for the UK economy was every bit as dismal as feared. The Bank's central projections for GDP growth and inflation are "substantially weaker" than in the August Report, although today's Report also acknowledges that the prospects for both are "unusually uncertain." The central projection is for a pronounced contraction in domestic demand that causes output to fall markedly through the first half of 2009, with the contraction in real GDP reaching around 2.0% on the year by Q2.

The Great Global Deleveraging Cycle Continues / Economics / Business Cycles

By: Mark_OByrne

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe great global deleveraging continues.

(Month to date it is down over 40% in USD terms and more than 62% in euro terms).

U.S. Economic Pain Precedes Greatest Investment Opportunity of a Generation / Economics / US Economy

By: Money_Morning

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleShah Gilani writes: If there's a proverb that captures the outlook for the U.S. economy in the New Year, it's the one that says: “It's always darkest before the dawn.”

Regardless of any formal announcement of whether or not the United States drops into an actual recession, the ongoing credit crisis guarantees a contraction of the American economy by virtually every measure we know. That period of darkness will be marked by a dramatic slowdown in economic activity, as well as by rising unemployment, additional declines in U.S. stock prices, and constant volatility. It could last as long as 12-18 months.
