$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:

Warnings of US Heading for Depression Plague US Economy / Economics / Economic Depression

By: Gerard_Jackson

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe cause of the current economic problems is very simple: Bad economics. Instead of closely examining the monetary theory that got us into this mess economists have started playing the blame game. Alan Greenspan blamed Wall Street irrational for making irrational economic decisions the appear to have brought the US economy to the brink of disaster.

GOTTERDÄMMERUNG- The Twilight of Irredeemable Debt / Economics / US Debt

By: Professor_Emeritus

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWagner's opera Gotterdämmerung is about the twighlight of pagan gods. The most powerful of the latter-day pagan gods that has been guiding the destinies of humanity for the past two-score of years is Irredeemable Debt. Before August 14, 1971 , debts were obligations, and the word “bond” was to mean literally what it said: the opposite of freedom. The privilege of issuing debt had a countervailing responsibility: that of repayment.

Alan Greenspan: The Age of Hubris (and the long road back) / Economics / Money Supply

By: Clif_Droke

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleHubris is an amazing thing. It causes those infected by it to justify actions that would normally be indefensible.

Take Alan Greenspan, for instance. He recently penned an editorial in the Financial Times claiming that under his leadership, the Federal Reserve is blameless on the property bubble. No way could the Greenspan Fed have foreseen the devastation its money policy of 2001-2006 would inflict on the housing market and the larger economy. “It wasn't my fault. Don't blame me,” claims Alan.

How the Economy Really Works- Inflation, Money Supply and the Velocity of Money / Economics / Money Supply

By: John_Mauldin

  • Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe Velocity Of Money
  • Is the Money Supply Growing or Not?
  • P=MV
  • A Slowdown in Velocity
  • If You Are in a Hole, Stop Digging
  • And More Write-offs to Come

The late and great Milton Friedman told us that inflation is always and everywhere a monetary phenomenon. But there is an asterisk to his equation that we need to examine, namely, the velocity of money. Sometimes a fast-growing money supply is not as inflationary as you might think. Then we will take quick looks at why the banking sector is in for more and larger rounds of write-offs, as well as note that the housing industry is in a hole but is gamely digging itself deeper. This week's letter will require you to put your thinking cap on as we travel to a mythical island to get an understanding of how the economy really works. There are a lot of charts, so the letter may again print long, but the word length is normal. And with no "but first," we jump right in.

For the Real Forces Behind US Economic Growth Look at the Nasdaq / Economics / US Economy

By: Brian_Bloom

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThink about this- One of the most interesting economists of the early 20 th Century was Joseph Schumpeter.
Here is a quote from the Wikipedia article: “Schumpeter's theory is that the success of capitalism will lead to a form of corporatism and a fostering of values hostile to capitalism, especially among intellectuals. The intellectual and social climate needed to allow entrepreneurship to thrive will not exist in advanced capitalism; it will be replaced by socialism in some form.

US Economic Quarterly Review and Outlook for 2008 / Economics / US Economy

By: John_Mauldin

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThis week's Outside the Box is from my friends at Hoisington Management. While somewhat technical, they make the case that a slowdown in consumer spending is inevitable. This is worth taking some time and thinking about. Quoting: "This means that consumer spending increases should be approximately zero for the next three years. Further exacerbating the problem is the personal saving rate which declined from 5.2% in the decade of the 1990s to average 1.3% in the last seven years, and now stands at 0.3%. Should declining wealth, rising unemployment and poor economic conditions cause consumers to begin to save and lift the rate back to the 1.3% average of the past seven years, real consumer spending would experience a multi-year contraction."

The US Needs a Good Dose of Supply-side Economics Instead of Interest Rate Cuts / Economics / US Economy

By: Gerard_Jackson

Since last September the Fed has slashed the fed funds rate by 300 basis points to 2.25 per cent. Will there be anymore cuts? Not if Martin Feldstein, former chairman of President Reagan's Council of Economic Advisors, has anything to do with it. Feldstein, now a Harvard economics professor, argues that further cuts would promote commodity prices and inflation without solving the economy's woes. What he didn't say is that what the US economy needs is more production — not more monetary manipulation — if genuine demand is to expand.

George Soros, Economic Illiteracy and Monetary Policy / Economics / Money Supply

By: Gerard_Jackson

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleSoros's main thrust against economics is that it is based on the theory that markets bring supply and demand into balance thus securing the best allocation of resources. He argues that this theory cannot apply to the real world because it is based on the model of perfect competition, on which he thinks modern economics depends.

Is China Driving the Australian Economy Out of Business? / Economics / Austrailia

By: Gerard_Jackson

I have written several articles drawing attention to the possibility that monetary policy may have reduced the ratio of manufacturing to GDP, only to have my concerns dismissed by the likes of Des Moore, a former Treasury official, as not being part of "the traditional explanation". But I was not saying anything new or radical. The possibility of an overvalued currency reducing the size of a country's manufacturing base is sometimes called the "Dutch disease" or the "dual economy".

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleRecent high profile bankruptcies of mainstay American retailers, such as The Sharper Image and Linens ‘n Things, as well as the proposed mergers between Blockbuster/Circuit City and Delta/Northwest, and the admissions from the nation's leading student lenders that their business models are no longer viable, mark the beginning of a long overdue overhaul of the American economy. In short, the economy will be getting smaller and more expensive.

Real Interest Rates Hit Minus 12.55% As Inflation Explodes! / Economics / Articles

By: Money_and_Markets

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMike Larson writes: If you've been following the news, you know the Federal Reserve has been cutting interest rates. The benchmark federal funds rate was 5.25% last summer. It's all the way down to 2.25% now, and chances are the Fed will cut that rate again when it concludes its next policy meeting on April 30. The only question is whether we'll get a quarter-point or half-point cut at this time.
