US Heading for Double-Digit Inflation / Economics / Stagflation

By: Money_and_Markets

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMartin Weiss writes: Nearly all the pieces are now in place for inflation to strike with increasing speed and fury, catching Wall Street by surprise, throwing government policy into turmoil and, at the same time, opening up broad opportunities for investors.

I know. I've seen this movie once before. And the script will forever be ingrained in my mind.

US Recession 2000 Can tell us a lot about today's Economy / Economics / Recession

By: Gerard_Jackson

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleSome readers have been asking how "Austrian economic analysis held up during the last recession". Brilliantly, is the answer. It successfully described the emergence of the American recession and the pattern of rising unemployment and spending neatly fitted the Austrian explanation for the boom-bust cycle. Austrianism claimed that the contraction started in the higher stages of production and then worked its way down the production structure. Figures from the NAPM (National Association of Purchasing Management) in the middle 2000 gave considerable support to this view.

Inflation Fear / Economics / Inflation

By: Paul_J_Nolte

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWith all the hand wringing about consumer confidence falling to 25+ year lows, it becomes much easier to understand IF we make the assumption that we are in a recession. Others worry about the self-fulfilling prophesy – if we believe we are in a recession, it will be so. However much of what is happening today was planted over a year ago. This too is the reason for why all the rate cuts made by the Fed have had little impact upon investors and the economy. However, the cuts will eventually have an impact – but that is not likely until later in the year. A complicating factor in today's economy is the lack of lending “interest” by banking institutions.

Credit Card Debt Ticking Time Bomb / Economics / US Debt

By: Peter_Schiff

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleFor those holding out hope that the American economy can miraculously avoid a long and deep recession consumer credit is often viewed as the wonder drug that can cure all manner of economic ills. As such, this week's report showing $15 billion growth in consumer credit was widely heralded as proof of America's economic strength and resilience.  However, we are now suffering the after effects of too much debt, and our salvation cannot be found in more of the same.

The Bernanke Monetary Policy Conundrum Heading for a Crash / Economics / Economic Depression

By: Mick_Phoenix

The Bernanke Monetary Policy Conundrum Heading for a Crash

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWith the US Federal Reserve cutting its Fed Fund Rate to 2%, presumably to aid the cost of borrowing and allow an expansion of lending that will lift the US economy from the doldrums you would expect to see an expansion of bank business. Not so according to the latest Fed's Senior Loan Officer Opinion Survey which shows that banks are now actively avoiding the expansion of credit and it can be shown are deliberately causing a credit contraction.

This has profound meaning for the US and the wider global economy.

US Government Facing Fiscal Armageddon- US Dollar in Deep Trouble / Economics / US Dollar

By: Money_and_Markets

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhen a president tells you the economy's OK and wannabe presidents tell you it's a disaster ... or when Wall Street pundits change their story almost daily ... I can understand how it may be tough to know what to believe ... and even tougher to decide what to do.

But when three respected government agencies put out reports and data that unanimously lead to the same conclusion about the most important factor in your financial future, there's no room for disbelief, no excuse for inaction.

Fixing The Credit Markets to Avoid Another Credit Crisis / Economics / Credit Crisis 2008

By: John_Mauldin

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThis week in Outside the Box we take up a topic that should be on the top of the agenda of every regulatory authority, executives at financial services firms of all types, and average investors: How do we fix the credit markets to make sure we do not have such a crisis again? Good friend Michael Lewitt of Hegemony Capital Management gives us his observations, some of which go further than I would personally like to see us go. But this is the conversation that must happen if we are to steer clear of future crises. It is clear to me now that a laissez faire approach to regulating certain financial instruments exposes the entire economy to risks much larger than the loss of a business here or there. While better disclosure is certainly appropriate, it is not enough.

Yes Virginia. This Is A Recession / Economics / Recession

By: Ronald_R_Cooke

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleA preliminary report from the United States Department of Commerce, Bureau of Economic Analysis (BEA), claims American Current-dollar GDP -- the market value of the nation's output of goods and services – increased 3.15 percent or $111.0 billion in the first quarter of 2008 (versus the last quarter of 2007), to a level of $14,185.2 billion. That economic performance equates to an average annual year over year increase of 4.67% against Q1 2007.

US Fed Monetary Policy- Bernanke Gets It Wrong / Economics / Recession

By: Gerard_Jackson

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleSince the 2000 election America's leftwing mainstream media has tried to pump out a stream of bad economic news. According to this mob of political bigots recessions only happen under Republican presidents, completely ignoring the easily researched fact that the 2000 recession began under President Clinton. Now that so many indicators have turned negative the media are having a collective orgasm.

Money Supply, Inflation, Deflation and Gold / Economics / Money Supply

By: John_Lee

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMoney serves as a medium of exchange and store of value. Price provides an important clearing mechanism in a society. Here we are going to explore the interesting dynamics between money and price. In a free market, when the quantity of money is fixed, the fact that the price of an apple is $1 and that of a Parker pen is $2 has tremendous implications. It takes knowledge, ingredients  and time to grow an apple while it involves branding, material, and capital to produce a Parker pen.

US Economic Stimulus Not a Silver Bullet / Economics / US Economy

By: Mike_Shedlock

While pondering whether there is going to be a second half recovery on the basis of stimulus checks, let's first take a look at the possible repercussions of Cash-Out Refis Lowest in Four Years . Fifty-six percent of Freddie Mac-owned loans were cash-out refinances in the first quarter of 2008, the smallest percentage since Q2 in 2004, the GSE said Friday. First quarter's share compares starkly to the 77 percent share of refinancing posted just one quarter earlier, and underscores the new reality for most homeowners.

The Great Depression of the 2010s / Economics / Economic Depression

By: Darryl_R_Schoon

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleEconomics is not rocket science. Neither is power.
Depressions are monetary phenomena caused by central bank issuance of excessive credit. In 1913, the newly created US central bank, the Federal Reserve, began issuing credit-based money in the US . Within ten years, the central bank flow of credit ignited the 1920s US stock market bubble; and shortly thereafter, following the collapse of the bubble in 1929, the world entered its first Great Depression in 1933.

US in Recession Despite Manipulated Employment and Inflation Statistics / Economics / Recession

By: John_Mauldin

  • Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleLies, Damn Lies, and Statistics
  • Who Is Inflating the Numbers?
  • Honey, I Blew up the Employment Numbers
  • A Black Swan in Food
  • Housing Numbers Are Better Than I Wrote

"There are three kinds of lies: lies, damn lies, and statistics." – commonly attributed to Benjamin Disraeli

If we are to believe the government statistics, the GDP of the US grew by 0.6% in the first quarter of this year. And unemployment actually fell. And there were only 20,000 job losses. This week we do a quick review of why the statistics can be so misleading. We also look at why I was wrong about the housing number last week, and I highlight what could be a very serious Black Swan lurking in the agricultural bushes. It should make for an interesting letter. It's hard to know where to begin, there are just so many tempting targets; so let's take the statistical aberrations in the order they came out this week.

Debt the Price for Economic Growth / Economics / US Economy

By: Andy_Sutton

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOur call from last week is playing out exactly as we forecasted. The Fed cut interest rates, signaled a willingness to pause, and the Dollar has begun another dead cat bounce. Included below is a chart that shows other dead cat bounces that have occurred during the past year. Note the end result of each of the prior bounces: an ultimately lower Dollar. There is no reason to believe this time will be any different. We outlined the reasons for this assumption in last week's piece.

Inflation v. Unemployment / Economics / Inflation

By: Gerard_Jackson

It says much about the lousy state of economic debate that the 1993 study The Costs of Unemployment in Australia , produced by the Economic Planning and Advisory Council and co-authored by Raja Junankar and Cezary Kapuscinski, is still being touted as a piece of sound economics. At the heart of this study is the grave economic error a "fight inflation first" policy generally incurs more costs than benefits.

Sharp Fall in Consumer Spending / Economics / US Economy

By: Mick_Phoenix

Does the consumer truly believe?
The past three Occasional Letters have been quite an in-depth discussion about the path taken by the Federal Reserve and recently by the Bank of England in their attempts to deal with the deflationary forces unleashed by the credit crash. Since those discussions we have seen evidence that supports my view as seen recently in the Weekly Reports.

$536 Billion Worth of Household Assets Evaporated in February? / Economics / US Housing

By: Paul_L_Kasriel

It sure is a good thing that $150 billion of checks from the IRS are in the mail to U.S. households because these same households experienced an evaporation in paper wealth in February to the tune of about $544 billion according to my admittedly back-of-the-envelope arithmetic. It was reported today that the Case-Shiller house price index for 20 major metropolitan areas fell 2.66% month-to-month in February. Applying that percentage decline in house prices to the fourthquarter value of $20,154.7 billion for household residential real estate from the Fed’s flow-offunds data yields a decline of $536 billion. Now, this is a very rough approximation for at least two reasons.

US Federal Reserve Wants Inflation to Avoid Deflation / Economics / Inflation

By: Axel_Merk

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWe are now importing inflation. This does not only apply to the cost of commodities, such as oil, but also to consumer goods imported from Asia. This is a newer trend as, in our analysis, Asia had been exporting deflation until the summer of 2006; since then, we have seen increased pricing power by Asian exporters.

Borrowed Consumption: Opium of the Masses / Economics / Debt & Loans

By: Kurt_Kasun

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMy last commentary touched off a mini-debate between myself and Michael Pento, a proponent of Austrian Economics who gallantly defends his principles against the Keynesian economists and supply-side monetarists when he makes his appearances on CNBC's Kudlow & Company. I too attempt to follow the Austrian economic precepts laid out by Ludwig von Mises and I think that the bone of contention between us, in the "posted comment section" after my initial commentary, boils down to the following von Mises' quote:
