Economic Risk Leads to Financial Mistrust / Economics / Credit Crisis Bailouts

By: Barry_Elias

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMy Nov. 12 blog described how modern economists severely miscalculated the economic realities, which fueled the 2008 financial crisis.

Five days after this piece was published, the Institute for New Economic Thinking (INET) issued a grant to a team of experts: The mission is to derive a computational model that would represent the underlying dynamics of the financial crisis.

Fed QE2 Creates Rapidly Accelerating China Housing Bubbles and Price Inflation / Economics / China Economy

By: Jeb_Handwerger

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAfter QE2, analysts were looking for possible consequences of the Federal Reserve Bank’s actions.  What has become apparent is that the Fed has created another bubble in China.  Investors globally have transferred devalued U.S. dollars and Euros to buy Chinese property and equities.  China has had to combat imported inflation with rapidly rising asset prices.  An influx of capital has caused a real estate bubble, a rise in costs of basic goods and excessive speculation in the commodity markets.  The Chinese Central Banks will be observing the inflation data which should be coming out this weekend and will be compelled to act aggressively to prevent China from a bust similar to the housing crisis which occurred in the United States in 2007.  Yesterday’s IPO’s showed that irrational exuberance is here once again, none since I have witnessed since the late 90’s.

No U.S. Economic Exit Strategy, Only Wall Street Speculators Are Profiting / Economics / Great Depression II

By: Bob_Chapman

Policy makers within the Treasury and the Fed are only interested in delaying and extending the timeline trying to find and extricate themselves from one of the most dangerous fiscal and monetary failures of all time. They know they and their controllers have no solution. QE1 and QE2 have temporally saved them financially, but have not saved any economy, especially the American economy. In addition it has added to the severity of the crisis.

Fed’s QE2 Ponzi Scheme Sets HyperInflation Trend in Motion / Economics / HyperInflation

By: Gary_Dorsch

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn a taped interview with CBS’ “60 Minutes” that aired on December 5th, Federal Reserve chief Ben “Bubbles” Bernanke tried to brainwash the American public, into believing that “Quantitative Easing” (QE), is absolutely necessary in order to prevent further losses of jobs, and tried to assure his listeners that he has the skills to keep inflation under control. The US-jobless rate would have risen far higher, “something like it was in the Depression, at 25%,” -- had the Fed not provided tens of trillions in loans to Wall Street banks and other financial companies, he said.

Congress to Follow Fed to and Spend Money to Lift Economic Growth in 2011 / Economics / Economic Stimulus

By: Asha_Bangalore

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe Fed's $600 billion purchase of Treasury securities, known as QE2, is the Fed's second chance to stimulate economic activity after the $1.725 trillion QE1 package expired in March 2010. Chairman Bernanke presented his case for the second package on "60 minutes" last Sunday. The Fed is focused on meeting its dual mandate of price stability and full-employment, both of which are not within the reach of the mandate at the present time.

U.S. Jobs Off Shoring Tsunami Quantitative Easing 3, a Perfect Stagflation Storm / Economics / Unemployment

By: Dian_L_Chu

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhilst most of the recent economic data seem to demonstrate a steady, albeit slow recovery in the United States, the November employment figures from the Labor Dept. threw a curve ball into the mix as the unemployment rate unexpectedly jumped to 9.8% from 9.6% held since August.

That brought the jobless rate to its 19th straight month of 9% or more, which is the longest stretch since World War II, while the unemployment rate of people with a college degree (25 and older) also hit a 40-year high of 5.1%.

Debt Bubble Chronicles, Here’s Europes “Lehman Event” / Economics / Global Debt Crisis

By: Graham_Summers

Earlier this year, I noted that the European debt crisis was mimicking the US’s 2008 banking crisis almost to a T. Greece was the “Bear Stearns” issue: a minor player that was swallowed up in the drive to maintain the appearance of stability.

Then came the $1 trillion bailout, the equivalent of the Fannie/ Freddie “blank check”: a massive sum of money thrown at a problem meant to convey the illusion that the powers that be have everything under control and that systemic risk is non-existent.

Bernanke Is 100% Sure He Can Control Inflation / Economics / Inflation

By: James_Quinn

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleI don't know about you, but I'm not 100% sure about anything. The older I get, the less sure I am about everything. I question things that I was sure were true when I was 25 years old. I'm not sure I'll wake up in the morning. I'm not sure I'll survive my commute to work. That is why I was flabbergasted last night as I watched Scott Pelley interview Ben Bernanke on 60 Minutes. As a side note, boy this show has gone downhill. In the old days of real journalism, Mike Wallace would have scorched Ben Bernanke, pointing out his phenomenal ability to be wrong or clueless on every financial issue the country has faced in the last 10 years. Today, Pelley under hands softball questions to Bernanke and never challenges him. It was a pathetic display of journalism.

No Economic Recovery in Sight, Reasons Why Global Capitalism Can't Recover Anytime Soon / Economics / Great Depression II

By: Shamus_Cooke

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAs the recession grinds on, politicians in most industrial countries have an incentive to make exaggerated claims about the supposed coming economic recovery. Some say the recession is over. Obama is in the group that claims we're on "the road to recovery,” while other nations can only spot recovery "on the horizon.” Below are seven important social phenomena that point to a more realistic economic and political outlook.

Gold, Keynesian Economics and Wall Street Journal Deflation Idiocy / Economics / Inflation

By: Howard_Katz

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleFriday’s Wall Street Journal was full of “optimistic” news for the U.S. economy.  It reported:

  “Retailers’ reports of robust November sales offered more evidence that the lackluster U.S. economy may finally be gaining momentum, despite stubbornly high unemployment.

  “According to 27 retailers tracked by Thomson Reuters, sales at stores open a year or more rose 6% last month, sharply exceeding a year-earlier gain of just 0.5%.  Online retailing also showed sizable gains.”
