Peter Schiff Says Dr. Keynes Killed the Patient / Economics / Economic Theory

By: Peter_Schiff

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleA morbidly obese gentleman labored into Dr. Hayek's office suffering from severe chest pain. The patient also complained that he was unable to consume his usual 10,000 calorie-per-day diet; in fact, he was feeling so sick that he could barely scarf down 9,000 calories. He plead that his love for food remained as strong as ever, but his body just wasn't keeping up with his demands.

Inflation and Deflation, The Flations Moving Towards a Chaotic Conclusion / Economics / Economic Theory

By: Fred_Sheehan

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe incessant debate of whether the economy is inflating or deflating suffers from a vocabulary problem. This is as it must be since some (Federal Reserve Chairman Ben S. Bernanke) discuss deflation as falling prices of stuff while others concentrate on the debt deflation of an overleveraged economy. The latter is what matters.

The Deflation Bogey / Economics / Economic Theory

By: William_Anderson

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe Paul Reveres of the economics profession are riding their horses, warning Americans, "Deflation is coming! Deflation is coming!" From Paul Krugman to Joseph Gagnon to the various mainstream news publications, the message is the same — the government needs to induce inflation now, or else the economy will sink further into the Slew of Despond and unemployment will increase.

The Form of Saving Matters For Free-market Fractional Reserve Banking / Economics / Economic Theory

By: Robert_Murphy

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAlthough Austrian economists agree on most of the "big picture" issues, even so there are some internal controversies. One of the most heated debates within the Austrian camp centers on the economic benefits (or lack thereof) of the practice of fractional-reserve banking. Just about every Austrian today thinks that our current financial system — cartelized and propped up by the government — is prone to excessive inflation and the boom-bust cycle.

The Austrian History of U.S. Money and Banking / Economics / Economic Theory

By: MISES

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleJonathan Finegold Catalán writes: Traditionally, the greatest and most complete history of American money is held to be Milton Friedman and Anna Schwartz's A Monetary History of the United States, 1867–1960. As a reservoir of statistics, Friedman and Schwartz's magnum opus is unrivaled. In terms of influence, there is no other book on the subject held in higher regard. Friedman and Schwartz challenge the conventional wisdom on American economic history, on the topics of the so-called Long Depression — a period which saw steadily falling prices, but unrivaled industrial growth — and the "dangers" of secular price deflation,[1] and the Great Depression.[2] But their empirical and positivist approach to economic analysis often mars their accuracy.[3]

The Inflation and Deflation Debate Deconstructed / Economics / Economic Theory

By: Jesse

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article'What most people call reason is really rationalization. Given a new set of data, most people will search through it only for those examples that support their existing beliefs. Their beliefs are really opinions, a tenuous collection of myths, anecdotes, slogans, and prejudices based largely on justifying personal fear and greed. This is what makes modern propaganda so powerful; people do not bother to think critically and objectively and act for the greatest good. And in their ignorance they can find the will to do increasingly monstrous things, and rationalize them.' Jesse

Linguistic Nonsense and Liberal Economics / Economics / Economic Theory

By: John_Kozy

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleLiberal economics has long been recognized by a host of writers, some of whom are economists themselves, as a religious-like dogma. Like Tertullian who believed "because it is absurd," economists accept the dogma not because it makes sense, but because it doesn't.

Whoa, you say, show me the evidence, and I will.

Nonsense on the Federal Budget Deficit Question / Economics / Economic Theory

By: Robert_Murphy

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn a recent piece I reported the shocking ignorance in a Huffington Post article on the alleged harmlessness of the federal deficit. Several readers wrote to tell me that as bad as the HuffPo article was, James Galbraith's interview with Ezra Klein was even worse.

They were right. In today's piece I'll walk through some of Galbraith's biggest whoppers.

Nielson: The End Game is Either Hyperinflation or Debt Implosion – Got Gold? / Economics / Economic Theory

By: Lorimer_Wilson

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article“The collapse of the U.S. economy is a certainty - only the manner in which it will happen has yet to be determined. It is just a matter of time before the global derivatives bubble will produce the same result that has occurred to every other currency not backed by gold throughout history - those currencies, our ‘money’, will become worthless.”

Federal Government's Trillion Dollar Deficits Crowding Out Our Future Wealth / Economics / Economic Theory

By: Gary_North

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe standard justification for the Federal government's trillion-dollar-plus deficits for the next decade is this: "Without this stimulus, the economy will fall into another Great Depression." This is the Keynesian Party Line, all over the West. It is promoted by almost everyone. Even normally free market economists have gotten on board.

The History of Capitalism / Economics / Economic Theory

By: MISES

The history of capitalism as it has operated in the last two hundred years in the realm of Western civilization is the record of a steady rise in the wage earners' standard of living. The inherent mark of capitalism is that it is mass production for mass consumption directed by the most energetic and far-sighted individuals, unflaggingly aiming at improvement. Its driving force is the profit motive, the instrumentality of which forces the businessman constantly to provide the consumers with more, better, and cheaper amenities. An excess of profits over losses can appear only in a progressing economy and only to the extent to which the masses' standard of living improves. Thus capitalism is the system under which the keenest and most agile minds are driven to promote to the best of their abilities the welfare of the laggard many.

Has Economics Run Out of Ideas? / Economics / Economic Theory

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleJonathan Finegold Catalan provides an excellent review of the current state of intellectual paralysis in the economics profession: http://www.marketoracle.co.uk/Article21501.html

He describes how right-now the debate hinges on re-examination and re-hashing of the ideas of the two legends of economic thinking, John Maynard Keynes and Mises-Hayek (the Austrian School).

Austrian Business Cycle Theory Vs Keynesians / Economics / Economic Theory

By: J_M_Finegold_Catalan

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe current recession has brought back discussion on the merits of countercyclical fiscal and monetary policy. Broadly speaking, the economics profession is divided into two camps. One side is made up of "liquidationists" and "deficit hawks," supporting tight monetary policy and low — or no — government spending. The other group is composed of those fearing a fall in prices, who support easy credit and expansive fiscal policy to combat it. While most economists probably fall in between, this dichotomy represents the two poles. The extremes are occupied by the Austrian School on one end and Paul Krugman on (or close enough to) the other.

The Unlimited Power of Suppressing the Interest Rate / Interest-Rates / Economic Theory

By: Thorsten_Polleit

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleUnder today's fiat-money regimes, central banks, as a rule, control short-term interest rates. They do so by setting the interest rates on short-term loans extended to commercial banks (typically with maturities of one day, one week, two weeks, or one month).

Credit Based on Consumption Not Savings, Real Bills Revisted / Economics / Economic Theory

By: Professor_Emeritus

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAdam Smith in his Wealth of Nations worked out the foundations of a second type of credit that is based, not on savings, but on consumption. Later this theory was pejoratively called "Real Bills Doctrine" by its detractors. We stick to this name because the adjective "real" admirably captures the essence of a bill of exchange, making it different from anticipation bills, accommodation bills, treasury bills, which all have a measure of being "unreal".

Thoughts on the Economy / Economics / Economic Theory

By: Pravda

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMarcus Eduardo de Oliveira writes: "… the ideas of Economists and political philosophers, BOTH right when they are and when they are wrong, are more powerful than is commonly understood." -John Maynard Keynes

Nobody can ignore the economy for only two reasons: the first is that not enough resources for everyone, since desires are unlimited. The shortage, understood as market failure, is an incontestable truth. The second reason is that we are all part of the economy. The latest issues involving the economy also involve us in every moment. Thus, regardless of the evolutionary stage of each company, we always affect situations involving the generation of employment, income, combating poverty, hunger, resource transfers, taxation, purchase and sale of goods.

The Death of the Postindustrial Dream / Politics / Economic Theory

Manufacturing is old hat and America is moving on to better things.

Keynesian Economics Fraud, A Bad Day For The WSJ / Economics / Economic Theory

By: Howard_Katz

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleA recurrent theme in my articles has been that our current economic system is intended to steal your wealth and that a vast amount of information being taught as economics is intended to justify this stealing and to trick you into falling for its program.

As with any misinformation, one must make a distinction between a deliberate lie and an honest mistake.  As I have studied this, it is clear to me that, at the very top, it is deliberate.  For example, John Maynard Keynes was a deliberate fraud.  He did not believe Keynesian economics.  It was a useful tool toward his goal of attracting the bankers to support him and his followers.  Keynes was a confidence man; our current economic system is a confidence game, and the intent is to steal the wealth of all the marks.

Debunking Paul Krugman's Icelandic Economic Miracle / Economics / Economic Theory

By: Dian_L_Chu

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWith op-ed pieces such as "Budget Deficits: Spend Now, Save Later", it is of no surprise that Paul Krugman declares--Iceland--a "Post-Crisis Miracle."

In an article dated June 30, Krugman wrote: "...although Iceland is generally considered to have experienced the worst financial crisis in history, its punishment has actually been substantially less than that of other nations."
