Bailouts Insolvency vs. Liquidity, or Austrian vs. Keynesian Economics / Economics / Economic Theory

By: LewRockwell

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMichael S. Rozeff writes: An economics debate of very great importance is surfacing. Is the government's economic rationale for bailing out the banks valid? If it is not, then the entire case for the bank bailouts fails. On one side of the debate are Austrians using Austrian economics, on the other side are Keynesians using Keynesian economics.

Keynesian's Blame Asian Saving's for Causing the Economic Crisis / Economics / Economic Theory

By: Professor_Emeritus

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article"Thank Heaven for little Keynesian Nobel laureates... without them what would little Keynesian Treasury secretaries do?..." At the long last we got the official explanation how we got into this mess. In his March 2, 2009, column in The New York Times under the banner title Revenge of the Glut Paul Krugman tells us, quoting the authority of the Chairman of the Fedreal Reserve Ben Bernanke, that it is all the fault of the Asians. They save damn too much. They test the endurance of unhappy Americans who bankrupt themselves in trying to work off all that darned excess saving fast enough before it can do more damage. Even though they do their level best, they could not keep up with the prodigious output of the Asians and "global savings glut" is the result.

Mainstream Economists Retarded Embrace of John Maynard Keynes' "Paradox of Thrift" / Economics / Economic Theory

By: Paul_L_Kasriel

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMainstream economists and the mainstream media continue to embrace John Maynard Keynes' notion of the "paradox of thrift." While most economists subscribe to the view that the pace of long-run economic growth is a function of productivity and thrift (saving), short-run growth can be retarded by too much thrift. According to this view, if households in the aggregate decide to cut back on their current spending, i.e., save more, aggregate economic demand will be negatively affected. Hence, the paradox of thrift. A little later in this commentary, I will try to dispel the notion that thrift retards growth in aggregate demand in the short run.

Will Keynesian Tax Cuts Deepen The Recession? / Economics / Economic Theory

By: Mike_Shedlock

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn one of the more ridiculous Keynesian theories to date, Gauti B. Eggertsson at the New York Fed comes to the conclusion Tax Cuts Will Deepen The Recession . Simple logic would dictate that letting people and businesses keep more of their money would be a good thing but amazingly Eggertsson comes to the opposite conclusion.

Krugman Still Wrong on the Economy / Economics / Economic Theory

By: Mike_Shedlock

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleKrugman seems particularly proud of a piece he wrote a decade ago. His new remake, Hangover Theorists , is as wrong now as it was then. Let's take a look.

The hangover theory , which I wrote about a decade ago, is still out there. The basic idea is that a recession, even a depression, is somehow a necessary thing, part of the process of “adapting the structure of production.” We have to get those people who were pounding nails in Nevada into other places and occupation, which is why unemployment has to be high in the housing bubble states for a while.

Consumption and Investment Fallacy / Economics / Economic Theory

By: Gerard_Jackson

For years I have been stressing the media's lousy economics. For those readers who think I have been exaggerating the situation allow me to introduce you to Bernard Salt, a partner in the well known accounting firm of KPMG. According to Mr Salt

It was a no-brainer in the 1950s: half the working age population was not engaged in the paid workforce. Change based on the role of women was always going to transform our society over the course of a generation.
