Efficient Market Hypothesis Destroying Industry and Forever Blowing Bubbles / Economics / Economic Theory

By: John_Mauldin

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleSix impossible things before breakfast, or how EMH has damaged our industry
The Dead Parrot of Finance
The Queen of Hearts and impossible beliefs
Slaves of some defunct economist
Prima facie case against EMH -- Forever blowing bubbles
The EMH 'Nuclear Bomb'

The Efficient Market Hypothesis, according to Shiller, is one of the most remarkable errors in the history of economic thought. EMH should be consigned to the dustbin of history. We need to stop teaching it, and brainwashing the innocent. Rob Arnott tells a lovely story of a speech he was giving to some 200 finance professors. He asked how many of them taught EMH - pretty much everyone's hand was up. Then he asked how many of them believed it. Only two hands stayed up!

Defending Capitalism / Economics / Economic Theory

By: Anthony_Ebin

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleI recently got into an argument with a marketing executive of India's biggest mutual fund, Unit Trust of India. We were discussing the recent media coverage of the 'public' outrage over a new Indian TV show called 'Sach ka Samna', it is the Indian counterpart to the American show 'Moment of Truth'. I haven't seen the show but I did see the public condemnation hailed on Indian media. It didn't bother me that people were speaking out against the show, but it did bother me when I saw members of Government condemning the show as if whole families were being murdered. It is surprising that the one thing that offends the government happens to be the revelation of truth.1

How Paul Krugman Has Misconceived Austrian Business Cycle Theory / Economics / Economic Theory

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDavid Gordon writes: Paul Krugman is an eminent economist, but he here reveals a woefully inadequate understanding of Austrian business-cycle theory. The rudiments of the theory are easy; one might have thought that even a Keynesian could grasp them.

Keynesians Can't Predict, Forecasts of Postwar Deflation Turned Out to be Entirely Wrong / Economics / Economic Theory

By: MISES

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleL. Albert Hahn writes: If you take the trouble to interrogate a large number of economists about the economic future of the country you will find that an overwhelming majority argues in the following way: In about two years at the latest, rearmament will be completed and the amounts spent for this purpose will be negligible. At about the same time the pent-up demand for investments will be largely satisfied. The productive apparatus will be sufficiently enlarged, improved, and modernized to meet the needs of an increased population and all other reasonable requirements. A depression — or at least a serious recession from the present high level of production and employment — must follow.

Has Paul Krugman Become an Austrian Economist? Not Quite…. / Economics / Economic Theory

By: LewRockwell

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWilliam L. Anderson writes: Paul Krugman has looked at Austrian Theory of the Business Cycle and found it wanting. First, he mistakenly calls it a "hangover theory" when, in fact, it is a theory of easy credit leading to malinvestments. Second, he really does not understand that government cannot sustain a boom once the financial wave has crested. Third, he has no understanding of the heterogeneity of assets, assuming that capital and other assets are homogeneous for the purposes of economic policy.

Keynesian Economics, the Usual Suspects / Economics / Economic Theory

By: MISES

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleFred Buzzeo writes: In 1977, the prolific economic writer Henry Hazlitt wrote, [T]here has been a profound change in the economic reputation of Keynes' General Theory. It is no longer accepted as the new gospel. Professors of economics can openly declare themselves to be non-Keynesians and even anti-Keynesians and still be treated with respect.[1]

The Keynesian Economic Revolution and the Neo-liberal Counter-revolution / Economics / Economic Theory

By: Global_Research

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDr. Eric Toussaint writes: As a result of the depression of the 1920s and 1930s, a new wave of critics tackled the neo-classical creed on a largely pragmatic basis. This new wave was international and involved political leaders and economists from differing belonging to various currents backgrounds: enlightened bourgeois thinkers, socialists and Marxists. In a context of mass unemployment and depression, proposals came forward for major public works, for anti-cyclical injections of public money, and even for bank expropriations.

Keynes, Monetary Cranks Promoting Fiat Currencies and Deflation / Economics / Economic Theory

By: LewRockwell

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleGary North writes: John Maynard Keynes changed his economic views every few years. His 1936 book, The General Theory of Employment, Interest, and Money, was his last book. He spent the war years in the British Treasury. He died in 1946. So, he did not change his mind again.

Keynes' final book was a defense of government spending. This is why the book was hailed as a masterpiece. It backed up what all Western governments were already doing: spending money on welfare projects and running massive deficits.

The Minimum Wage is Maximum Economic Stupidity / Politics / Economic Theory

By: Peter_Schiff

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn a free market, demand is always a function of price: the higher the price, the lower the demand. What may surprise most politicians is that these rules apply equally to both prices and wages. When employers evaluate their labor and capital needs, cost is a primary factor. When the cost of hiring low-skilled workers moves higher, jobs are lost. Despite this, minimum wage hikes, like the one set to take effect later this month, are always seen as an act of governmental benevolence. Nothing could be further from the truth.

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleGeorge Reisman writes: Readers who are already familiar with the nature of credit expansion and the concepts of standard money and fiduciary media should skip the first section. Readers who are also already familiar with the role of credit expansion and fiduciary media in generating the stock market and real estate bubbles should skip the second section as well and proceed directly to the third section "Evasion of Responsibility for the Bubbles."

A Message for Armchair Economists / Economics / Economic Theory

By: LewRockwell

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleBetsy Hansen writes: At some point in our intellectual development, we libertarians are naturally drawn to study economics. I think this stems from the fact that we love to explore the forces which drive our world. Economics is, in a broad sense, the study of human cooperation. A solid understanding of economics enables us to see how and why our world looks and behaves as it does.

The Miracle of the Market / Economics / Economic Theory

By: LewRockwell

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleLudwig von Mises didn’t like references to the "miracle" of the marketplace or the "magic" of production or other terms that suggest that economic systems depend on some force that is beyond human comprehension. In his view, we are better off coming to a rational understanding of why markets are responsible for astounding levels of productivity that can support exponential increases in population and ever higher living standards.

Carl Marx was the First Real Globalist / Politics / Economic Theory

By: Global_Research

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWilliam Bowles writes: If nothing else, the wholesale plunder of the planet’s natural resources has brought into sharp focus the necessity for some kind of global (and globally enforceable) regulation of what’s left of the planet’s precious cargo of life. But can capitalism undertake such a task? Not only that, is it willing to do so and is even some kind of ‘reformed’ capitalism capable of doing so given that the basic drive of capitalism is expand or die.

Lessons for Economists on Deflationary, Deleveraging Recessions / Economics / Economic Theory

By: John_Mauldin

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThere is a debate in academic circles on the lessons of the current economic crisis. While most ivory tower debates are of little concern to our daily affairs, this debate should concern you, as it will inform those who hold central bank and political power. Remember, there is no playbook of rules for what to do in deflationary, deleveraging recessions. They are making it up as they go along.

Elliott Wave Theory Based Trading Into and out-of the Stock Market March 2009 Low / Stock-Markets / Economic Theory

By: Joseph_Russo

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWe trust that all those who have engaged in trading markets for any period of time will conclude that it is an unrealistic expectation that any single or group of trading strategies can work to perfection all of the time.  Price action is elusive more often than not.  As a result, losses are a most assured and inevitable part of the entire trading process.  However, unwelcomed but anticipated nonetheless, cumulative debilitating losses need not dominate ones trading experience.  Similar to a professional baseball player’s batting average, highly successful trading strategies need only perform with consistency a small percentage of the time in order to deliver phenomenal benchmarked measures of success.
