Fed Stuck in Neutral on Monitory Policy Response to Stagflation / Economics / Stagflation

By: John_Browne

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOn June 25th , the Fed made no changes in its key interest rates and issued a statement that underscored how narrow their room for maneuver had become. Caught between the opposing forces of economic contraction and inflation, the Fed revealed that it was locked in neutral.  Given that the Fed must use opposite remedies to satisfy the demands of its dual mandate (higher rates to curb inflation and lower rates to stimulate growth), the Fed is stuck firmly in neutral.  There appears to be nothing left to do except to talk and hope for the best.

US Downward Economic Spiral in Employment Market / Economics / US Economy

By: Mike_Shedlock

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe New York Times is reporting Deepening Cycle of Job Loss Seen Lasting Into '09 . Plummeting home prices have in recent months eliminated jobs for hundreds of thousands of people, from bankers and real estate agents to construction workers and furniture manufacturers.

“The labor market is clearly deteriorating, and it's highly likely to keep deteriorating,” said Andrew Tilton, an economist at Goldman Sachs. “It's clear that the housing downturn and credit crunch are still very much under way. Clearly, there are more jobs to be lost in housing, finance and construction — hundreds of thousands of more jobs to be lost collectively.”

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleCrunch Time for Debt - “Consumer boom shows US out of the woods... Despite the jump in energy prices and the related collapse in measures of consumer confidence, retail sales rose by 1.1 per cent on the month, the strongest gain since November...If there were going to be a US recession in response to the credit crisis, it would have started by now. So let me stick my neck out and say without qualification the US is out of the woods.” Anatole Kaletsky , The Times June 18th 2008.

Thank Heaven for the resilient US consumer, soldiering on stoically under an enormous burden of debt.

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleFarwell Address: The Inaugural Session of GSUL took place in February, 2007, at the Martineum Academy in Hungary. Subsequent sessions, including one in Dallas, Texas, showed a healthy increase in attendance, on average by fifty percent. Still, I am now forced to announce that Session Four in Hungary in July, and Session Five in Canberra, Australia in November will be the last. GSUL will fold tent as its sponsor, Sprott Asset Management, Inc., has withdrawn its financial support. Mr. Eric Sprott said in his letter that “we weren't attracting enough interest to justify that ongoing expenditure”.

Its Inflation NOT Deflation, US Heading for Sharply Higher Interest Rates / Economics / US Interest Rates

By: David_Petch

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIt is the end of the week and the start of a long weekend up here in the Great White North, so today's commentary will be brief. Oil climbed overnight to peak at $141.71/barrel and this is likely not set to slow down yet until something breaks. Continue to stock up on dry goods such as rice, whole-wheat flour, powdered milk, brown sugar etc. because prices are going much higher. Many of the countries around the globe with currencies pegged to the US dollar have been forced to depreciate them via interest rates and fiat expansion to keep at a preset level. This has caused prices to rise higher than anticipated and many such nations are being forced to raise interest rates.

Regional Velocity of Inflation a Consequence of US Trade Deficit / Economics / Inflation

By: John_Mauldin

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleI mentioned in last Saturday's letter a report by Louis Gave of GaveKal fame on whether inflation may be waning and its importance. Louis gave me permission to use it as this week's Outside the Box. It is typical of the thoughtful analytical work they do.

Louis and his partners and associates at GaveKal write some of the more thought-provoking material I read. They really challenge my position on numerous matters, causing me to look at many items from a different view. That of course, makes this particular piece good for Outside the Box. Whether you agree or disagree, you need to know why you hold a position. If you can't articulate the "against," how can you be sure you truly understand the "for"?

Deflationary Debt Deleveraging Hurricanes to Hit US and UK / Economics / Deflation

By: Mike_Shedlock

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleCongratulations (of sorts) go to the UK as British household debt is highest in history .
British households are now more indebted than those of any other major country in recorded history, it has emerged.

Families in the UK now owe a record 173pc of their incomes in debts, official figures have shown. The ratio of debt to income is higher than any other country in the Group of Seven leading industrialised economies, and is sharply higher than the 129pc of incomes it was five years ago.

The Slow Motion Recession, Inflation, Deflation and Stagflation / Economics / Stagflation

By: John_Mauldin

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article"We appear to be entering a period of serious stagflation with sharply rising expected and actual inflation combined with large downside risks to growth and employment."

"I would argue that what we are seeing is an acceleration of expected consumer price inflation in the context of a sharp expansion in global liquidity. It is hardly surprising that the prices of those commodities, such as oil, for which the short-run price elasticities of supply and demand are low move upwards strongly when there is a rise in expected general inflation.

World Recession 2009 as a Result of Peak Oil / Economics / Recession

By: Brian_Bloom

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhilst most people are vaguely aware that oil is important to the world economy, few understand the true impact of the recent rise in the oil price.

In 1998 the heads of state of the USA and Australia failed to ratify the Kyoto protocols. They were trying to protect their country's economies. Ironically, they engineered a situation where not only is the US economy under greater threat than it would have been had our leaders ratified the protocols, the entire world economy is now seriously threatened.

Peak Credit Has Arrived- Forget Inflation We are in Deflation / Economics / Deflation

By: Mike_Shedlock

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe Marlin Company 14th Annual Attitudes in the American Workplace Poll reports the following results on June 24.
More than one third (41%) of US workers are cutting back on utilities, nearly half have reduced food purchases (48.5%) and a large percentage are buying less clothing.

The national survey of US workers, conducted May 12-14, 2008, also found that younger workers (between the ages of 18 to 29) are being hit the hardest by the economy and are the most desperate about their economic future. More than one third (34.3%) of young American workers say their financial situation has caused them to “feel hopelessness or despair about their economic future.” That compares with 28.8% of workers age 30 to 49, 23.5% of workers 50-64 and 17.9% of workers 65 or older.

The Nondefense Market for Durable Goods - The Big Picture / Economics / US Economy

By: Paul_L_Kasriel

Chart 1 shows that in May, shipments of durable goods excluding defense were down year-over-year 4.4%; new orders for the same were down 4.3%. Both started to soften in late 2006 when the tentacles of the housing recession began squeezing other sectors of the economy. The housing recession is taking its toll on the demand for discretionary consumer goods, which is reflected in the contraction in durable goods activity.

Money Supply Surge to Lead to US Inflationary Depression / Economics / Stagflation

By: Mark_OByrne

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleGold closed at $879.60 in New York  yesterday and was down $9.20 and silver closed at $16.48, down 13 cents. Gold fell prior to and shortly after the Federal Reserve's decision to keep interest rates on hold at 2%. However, with rates remaining extremely accommodative and inflation surging gold soon recovered and rallied into the New York close and continued rallying in electronic trading. Gold has continued to rally in Asian and early European trading.

Inflation to Unleash a Financial Tsunami / Economics / Inflation

By: Mark_OByrne

Gold closed at $888.80 in New York  yesterday and was up $4.40 and silver closed at $16.61, down 16 cents.  Gold fell initially in Asia, then rose in early European trading prior to falling again in recent trade.

With oil prices remaining near record highs, near $137 a barrel  this morning and the dollar slightly weaker (it breached and remains close to 1.56 against the euro again this morning), gold should remain well bid at these levels but in the short term anything can happen and support is at $880 and $860. With the Federal Reserve likely to leave interest rates on hold at 2%, markets will look to the accompanying statement for indications as to future interest rate direction.

The Impact of Rising Prices on Consumers and Producers / Economics / Inflation

By: Paul_J_Nolte

The litany of banks surrendering to the siren call of raising additional capital expanded again last week, in addition to various write-downs from some of the money center banks put the market back on its' heals for the week and opened the door to yet another “test” of the January/March lows. While energy prices have been blamed for the declined last week, in fact oil prices have declined in each of the past two weeks. The inflation reports continue to run uncomfortably “hot” as energy and food prices impact both the consumer and producer prices.

Rising Prices and the Inflation Genie / Economics / Inflation

By: David_Vaughn

Do you believe in high prices? Do you believe that the cost of every day living is climbing substantially higher? I just don't know. Our government has not warned us yet of a real inflationary problem. So the 5 dollars a gallon I now pay for milk is just an illusion. 4 dollar gas may also be an illusion. We must be guided of course by our government as to whether or not inflation is a real threat. So the government remains telling us that we are merely on the edge of an inflationary problem. I feel better already.
