The Increasing Cycle of Decreasing Demand Hits Financial Markets and Real Estate / Economics / Deflation

By: Darryl_R_Schoon

The Economy & The Fat Kid
Credit-based economies constantly need to expand in order to service constantly increasing levels of debt. Central banks adjust the flow of credit to maintain the balance between economic expansion and economic contraction.

Then one day, a fat kid shows up at the playground. While everyone knows it's a private playground and admittance is strictly controlled, no one knows where the fat kid came from or how he got in. Nonetheless, the fat kid's there.

The Financial Foundations of the American Century - Financial Tsunami Part II / Economics / US Economy

By: F_William_Engdahl

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe ongoing and deepening global financial crisis, nominally triggered in July 2007 by an event involving a small German bank holding securitized assets backed by USA sub-prime real estate mortgages, can best be understood as an essential part of an historical process dating back to the end of the Second World War—the rise and decline of the American Century.

The American Century, proudly proclaimed by Time-Life founder and establishment insider, Henry Luce in a famous 1941 Life magazine editorial, was built on the preeminent role of New York banks and Wall Street investment banks which had by then clearly replaced the City of London as the center of gravity of global finance. Luce's American Century was to be built in a far more calculated manner than the British Empire it replaced.

Sovereign Wealth Funds Threat to United States Economy / Economics / Sovereign Wealth Funds

By: Jim_Willie_CB

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe Sovereign Wealth Fund (SWF) movement has begun to expand in a powerful manner, and will not go away. In fact, it will expand on a grand basis since foreign nations have had their fill of US Treasury Bonds, and see grand risks ahead for any US$-based investments.

The SWF fund movement is intended to pursue the two prime commodities, GOLD & CRUDE OIL, the premier financial anchor and commercial fuel in the increasingly upside down world. Several stories have emerged, on Chinese and Arab managed funds purchasing giant equity stakes on cash infusions for large crippled US banks. Regard the movement as creditor receivership in stages, as the mammoth credit masters for the US Economy over the last 30 years are slowly taking over in stages major US corporations, the latest stage focused upon bank bailouts. In the past few months, a total of $60 billion has been poured into the Western big banks, more with each passing week seemingly.

Fed's Small Fixes for a Growing Economic Problem / Economics / US Economy

By: Paul_Petillo

The economy has taken a serious turn since the first of the year. January has seen the Wilshire 5000 drop 4.9%, unemployment tick up, and write-downs and write-offs increase in size. Fortunately, the news is finally reaching the campaign trail. Problem is no one can quite agree on whether these problems are short-term or long, good or bad, recessionary or just simply the result of a poor calculation done months, perhaps years ago. So what happened when we turned the calendar?

US Economy and Bernanke's Superficial Understanding of Economics / Economics / US Economy

By: Gerard_Jackson

At the beginning of the month the Fed sent out a press release in which it brought attention to "a string of large current account deficits" by the US. We also had Mr Bernanke grandly declaring: We stand ready to take substantive additional actions as needed to support growth and to provide adequate insurance against downside risks.

The Bush $100 Billion Hyper-Inflationary Stimulus Package / Economics / Inflation

By: Mike_Whitney

In the next couple of weeks, George Bush will prove that the last 30 years of supply side, free market economics was nothing more than a overripe pile of horse manure. In fact, right now, the B-52s are being loaded with pallets-full of freshly-minted hundred dollar bills which will be air-dropped “from sea to shining sea” as soon as King George gives the nod.

US Social Security Trust Fund Government Designed and Controlled Ponzi Scheme / Economics / US Economy

By: Steve_Selengut

As an investor, I've always wondered why Social Security is such a problem. What's so difficult about managing this particular Trust Fund, and why is it so different from other investment accounts that pay out a constant stream of income? The private sector does it routinely with defined benefit pension plans and fixed annuities, so what's the big deal? Is Social Security failing because it hasn't been invested soundly, or is there some other reason?

US Trade Deficit Reduction Reliant on Increased Savings and Reduced Consumption / Economics / US Economy

  • What Are They Thinking?
  • The Reality of Trade Deficits
  • Fair Tax Nonsense
  • How to Create an Immigration Depression
  • Stimulate the Economy by Cutting Spending?
  • Tax Hikes to Help Us Grow?

In the past week, I have been in the car coming home late from work, with the presidential debates are on the radio. It is very discouraging to listen to what passes for economic literacy among the candidates. In reality, many candidates are espousing policies that are quite dangerous at worst, or simply misleading at best. Far too many in both parties tell a frustrated America what it wants to hear, rather than the economic reality. The Republicans have some of the worst offenders.

Gold Price Rise a Consquence of Inflationary Global Expansion Money Supply / Economics / Money Supply

By: Peter_Schiff

Holding onto its "all is well" bias like a terrified cowboy on an enraged bull, Wall Street has managed to convince itself, and much of the world, that inflation is a non-issue. When confronted with facts to the contrary, their rationalizations come fast and thick. Nowhere is this spin more pronounced than in their dismissal of the surging price of gold as a relevant indicator.

Australian Prime Minister Should Ignore Demands for Price Controls / Economics / Austrailia

By: Gerard_Jackson

Now that we have wall-to-wall Labor Governments the question of price controls has once again been raised, particularly with respect to petrol. Although I do not believe for a moment that Prime Minister Rudd intends to imposed price controls I still think it is prudent to remind people that those who cry out for price controls either believe that the laws of supply and demand do not exist or that they are determined by institutional factors, meaning that they vary according to time and place. From this they conclude that prices can be fixed without any harm to the economy so long as account is take of the costs of production.

Deflation Economic Time-bomb As US Moves Towards Recession / Economics / Deflation

By: Mike_Whitney

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article"Is there anyone who still does not understand that talk of 'inflation' by officialdom is just a red herring intended to distract us from the far more dangerous dragon of deflation?" Mike Shedlock; Mish's Global Economic Trend Analysis

We are to about see how much George Bush really believes the “supply side” mumbo-jumbo he's been spouting for the last 7 years. Last week's Labor Department report confirmed that unemployment is on the rise (5%) and that corrective action will be required to avoid a long and painful recession. There's a good chance that the Chameleon in Chief will jettison his “trickle down” doctrine for more conventional Keynesian remedies like slashing interest rates, government programs, and tax relief to middle and low income people.

Central Banks Facing Stagflation - Bullish Gold, Currencies and Crude Oil / Economics / Inflation

By: Christopher_Laird

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOne of the main reasons gold is rising so much now is because central banks are facing stagflationary forces. Stagflation is a combination of economic stagnation with inflation. Central banks find it hard to lower interest rates because of inflation, and economic stagnation causes them to want to lower interest rates. This is very gold and oil bullish.

Many of the causes of gold's rise in the late 70's and 1980 are with us today. But let's first define stagflation:

The Coming Economic Depression & Christmas On Threadneedle Street / Economics / Global Financial System

By: Darryl_R_Schoon

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe address of the Bank of England is Threadneedle Street , EC2 London. Martha and I could not have been closer. On Christmas day, we were at the Threadneedles Hotel at 5 Threadneedle Street . But proximity to the Bank of England is measured not by distance but by influence. Those closest to the Bank of England are the moneylenders.

England 's reign as a world power actually began on Threadneedle Street . Then, no bank had its own building and bankers were but goldsmiths who lent money and rented space to do business. But after the moneylenders cut their bargain (and it was a bargain) with King William of England , things were never to be the same, either for England or the moneylenders—or the world.

US Recession Will Ultimately be More Severe than Current Forecasts / Economics / Recession

By: Bob_Bronson

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDespite permabull hype, as reflected especially by many of Larry Kudlow's guests on CNBC, the second revision in 3Q GDP neither obviated nor postponed the persistently developing -- and very predictable -- recession.  

Our stock market and economic cycle template, or SMECT model   clearly illustrates the "perfect storm" of several business and economic cycles contracting simultaneously and suggesting, well in advance, that the oncoming recession will be more severe than average

The Great Depression - 2008 Forecasters Still Getting it Wrong / Economics / Recession

By: Gerard_Jackson

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAs the Australian and US booms rolls on some 'forecaster', particularly on the net, are once again drawing historical analogies, warning that we risk a financial collapse that could bring on a depression every bit as bad as the 1930s. These forecasters know as much about the Great Depression as I do about brain surgery. Unfortunately, journalists' ignorance of economic history is massive.

NO Economic Decoupling Instead Greater Interdependence - 2008: The Year of Reckoning ? / Economics / Global Financial System

By: Brent_Harmes

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhat lies dead ahead for our economy.- The main stream press is finally waking up to the economic realities that are starting to affect us here and now.  The January 7, 2008 Forbes magazine has an article by Ernest Zedillo, (former President of Mexico and current Director of The Yale Center for the study of Globalization) titled, 2008:  Year of Reckoning .  This article is written by a very studied and intelligent man that has seen first hand the effects of currency and borrowing problems.  He sees major problems dead ahead for the global economy and I think he absolutely hits the nail on the head with his analysis.  Here are a few quotes from that article along with my comments:

Sovereign Wealth Funds - Saviours or Harbingers of Economic Apocalypse? / Economics / Sovereign Wealth Funds

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe Mega Picture - Sovereign Wealth Funds (SWF's) are being hailed as the saviours of the financial world, but in reality are more akin to harbingers of the economic apocalypse for countries such as the United States and United Kingdom.

The SWF's have been stepping in of late with tens of billions in financing and investments into the cash starved US banking and finance sector with financial institutions such as Citicorp selling off large chunks every other week to funds such as that to the Abu Dhabi SWF at 4.9% of the company for $7.5bn on a fixed yield of 11%, the terms are far more favourable than offered to domestic investors. Most recent speculation is that Rio Tinto maybe inline for a chinese SWF bid of as much as $150 billion.

US Economy Forecast 2008 - First Recession then Recovery / Economics / US Economy

By: John_Mauldin

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn this issue:
Forecast 2008: Recession and Recovery
18,000 Jobs? Not Really.
Housing: Going Down, Down, Down
Who's Got My Credit Default Swap Back?
Counterparty Risk is the Real Sleeper Issue
The Fed: Too Little, Too Late
Europe, Santa Barbara, China, and The Motley Fool

It's that time of year, when I throw caution to the wind and present my annual forecast issue. Jumping to the conclusion, I think a recession has begun, so the relevant question is to ask when the recovery will begin. We will look at the housing market, the continued implosion of the credit markets, and the deteriorating employment picture. Will the Fed worry more about employment and recession or about the very real inflation pressures? Oil? Gold? Which way the dollar? I am going to make some unusual calls, as well as highlight what I think will be the next looming problem in the growing credit crisis. We'll try to cover it all in just a few pages.
