Deflating Housing and Credit Bubbles Will Lead to DisInflation / Economics / Credit Crisis 2008

By: John_Mauldin

  • Best Financial Markets Analysis Article The BS from the BLS
  • 2,500,000 "Lost Jobs" and Counting
  • Taking a Long-Term Perspective
  • Leverage in Reverse Gear
  • What's That Hissing Sound?

The official number for employment suggested a loss of 63,000 jobs. But could it have been more like 200,000? And I will make a case for 2,000,000 lost jobs last month. This week we will take a look at the confusing labor-market picture in the US. We will also look at the debate over the money supply. Is the Fed increasing the money supply at a reckless rate, fueling inflation fears down the road? All this and a lot more as we look at how the recession in affecting everyone and everything, from individuals to large businesses. (The letter will print a little long, but there are a lot of charts.)

Post Bubble America Heading for Deepest Recession Since the Great Depression / Economics / Economic Depression

By: Mike_Whitney

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMarket conditions are the worst anyone in this industry can ever remember. I don't think anyone has a recollection of a total disappearance in liquidity...There are billion of dollars worth of assets out there for which there is just no market.” Alain Grisay, chief executive officer of London-based F&C Asset Management Plc; Bloomberg News

The hurricane that began with subprime mortgages, has swept through the credit markets wreaking havoc on municipal bonds, hedge funds, complex structured investments, and agency debt (Fannie Mae). Now the first gusts from the Force-5 gale are touching down in the real economy where the damage is expected to be widespread.

US Dollar-Gold: A Perfect Hyper-Stagflationary Storm / Economics / Stagflation

By: Jim_Willie_CB

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe title should really be “Psychology of 1000-20-100” to give respect to the major signpost price targets. The $1000 gold target is within reach. The $20 silver target has been breached. The $100 crude oil price has been breached. Before long, all three price levels will serve as support. When a gold target of $1000 was proposed three to four years ago, most people dominated (or bound) by conventional thinking dismissed such talk as silly, irresponsible, even ludicrous. Not any more! The same goes for silver and crude oil with their respective distant price targets, each attained. Profound market psychology is in the process of changing. Many new wrong analyses will come to the table, like so many casseroles containing rancid meat and rotten vegetables as ingredients. They will maintain that now these three goals have been met, the great sell off can begin. They will be dead wrong.

Eurozone Economy Heading for Hard Landing- Economic Forecast 2008 / Economics / Euro-Zone

By: Dr_Krassimir_Petrov

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleEconomic reality will likely prove forecasts of major international institutions about Europe's 2008 growth prospects wrong. So, let us first see what they think; then we will see what I think and why.

A number of major institutions have provided their 2008 Eurozone economic forecast. Interestingly, many of them just recently (December 2007) revised down their forecasts. Here is a quick survey: 2.1% by IMF – revised its 2008 growth forecast for the Eurozone down from 2.5%; 1.9% by OECD; 2.0% by ECB, the midpoint of their range, down from previous midpoint of 2.3%; 2.0% by EU Commission; 1.8% by ING Financial Markets.

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.

Kings of Denial: What Bush and Bernanke are NOT telling you about the Economy ... / Economics / US Economy

By: Money_and_Markets

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMartin Weiss writes: Never underestimate the capacity of politicians and bureaucrats to trap themselves into a pattern of denial.

That's what Fed Chairman Greenspan did in the early 2000s, even while he was helping to create the greatest housing bubble of all time.

Stagflation and the Fed- Damn the Inflation Torpedoes! Full Speed Ahead! / Economics / Stagflation

By: John_Mauldin

  • Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleHow Do You Spell Stagflation?
  • Memo from the Fed: Inflation? What Inflation?
  • The Fed Will Cut and Cut Again
  • Damn the Inflation Torpedoes! Full Speed Ahead!
  • Apple, Sprint, AT&T, and Going to the Dark Side

This week's topic was inspired by a discussion I had with George Friedman of Stratfor fame last night. He was suggesting the recession would be short and steep, and I of course think it is going to be shallow and with a long, protracted, and slow Muddle Through recovery. And it all hinges on how the Fed thinks about inflation.

Tax Rebate 2008 - United States Congress Resorts to Trickle-Up Irrationality / Economics / Credit Crisis 2008

By: Andy_Sutton

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe Roman poet Juvenal used the term ‘bread and circuses' to characterize palliative measures taken by the imperial Roman government to lure the populace into a state of blissful ignorance. This blissful ignorance comes at the expense of the solution of long-term societal problems, and arguably was a significant component of the end of the Empire.

Charles Fourier described his economic pinnacle a bit differently, opining that the oceans would turn to lemonade and roasted chickens would fly into our mouths. He used this amazing statement to describe a utopian socialism where the government was the ultimate provider.

What if Conventional Wisdom On Economic Growth and Consumer Spending Is Wrong? / Economics / US Economy

By: Tim_Iacono

There it was, right in the middle of the front page of yesterday's Wall Street Journal about four paragraphs down in the lead story titled " Decline in Home Prices Accelerates " - more evidence that the economy as we know it could be fundamentally flawed, yet you'd never get a hint of that even from reading one of the the world's finest business publication.

US Money Supply Growth? Look to China / Economics / Money Supply

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleBen Bernanke's Mission Impossible is to deliver a favorable economic climate conducive towards a Republican election victory in November 2008,

The mission requires the US Fed to -

  • abandon the defense of the dollar,
  • to abandon the fight against inflation,

America Saves Week Feb 24th to March 2nd - Build Wealth Not Debt! / Economics / US Debt

By: Wall_Street_Weather

While paging through the local paper yesterday, I spotted a bank ad touting a 48 month Certificate of Deposit for 3.5% APY. The barely legible print at the bottom of the ad said that the CD requires a $10,000 minimum of new money to the bank. Wow, I bet people will be standing in line for the bank to open this morning.

US Economic Boom and Busts / Economics / US Economy

By: Gerard_Jackson

The US Economy: Been there before - There are times when in order to find out where we are we need to discover how we got there. And this is certainly the case with economies, and the US economy is no exception. This is why economic lessons are vitally important and why they need to be constantly aired lest the public be led astray by demagogues and economic illiterates. (Think Obama and Hillary Clinton). One of the most important lessons that was largely disregarded in the 1990s is that booms are always followed by busts. (The dishonest US mainstream media's response to this fact is to blame recessions on Republicans and always credit Democrats with the good times).

By: John_Mauldin

  • Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe Muddle Through Fed
  • Risks to the Downside
  • Consumers Gone Wild
  • Leaving the Ballpark After All these Years

This week the Fed offered us their forecasts for 2008-10 for the economy, inflation and employment. We will look at some of the details which I think will be of interest. Then we glance at some data on the savings rate which suggests consumer spending may be in for more of a challenge than many think. There is a lot of ground to cover.

Inflation: America 's Greatest Export / Economics / US Economy

By: Peter_Schiff

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleUnfortunately one of the few things still made in America is inflation. In fact, it now ranks as our greatest export. 

A significant by-product of the current global economic system, wherein Americans spend money they do not earn to buy foreign products that they do not make, is that trillions of dollars are now parked in foreign banks just looking for somewhere to go.
