Wikileaks Discloses The Reason(s) Behind China's Shadow Gold Buying Spree
Post Date: 2011-09-04 18:26:31 by Hondo68
1 Comments
Wondering why gold at $1850 is cheap, or why gold at double that price will also be cheap, or frankly at any price? Because, as the following leaked cable explains, gold is, to China at least, nothing but the opportunity cost of destroying the dollar's reserve status. Putting that into dollar terms is, therefore, impractical at best, and illogical at worst. We have a suspicion that the following cable from the US embassy in China is about to go not viral but very much global, and prompt all those mutual fund managers who are on the golden sidelines to dip a toe in the 24 karat pool. The only thing that matters from China's perspective is that "suppressing the price of gold is ...

CHART SHOCK: The REAL Unemployment Rate Is 22%

It's now above 23% with the August update.  Details from John William's Shadow Stats. Shadow Stats The seasonally-adjusted SGS Alternate Unemployment Rate reflects current unemployment reporting methodology adjusted for SGS-estimated long-term discouraged workers, who were defined out of official existence in 1994. That estimate is added to the BLS estimate of U-6 unemployment, which includes short-term discouraged workers. The U-3 unemployment rate is the monthly headline number. The U-6 unemployment rate is the Bureau of Labor Statistics’ (BLS) broadest unemployment measure, including short-term discouraged and other marginally-attached workers as well as ...

$1.3T deficit projected as economy cools

WASHINGTON (AP) - The White House on Thursday predicted that unemployment will remain at 9 percent next year, a gloomy scenario for President Barack Obama's re-election campaign. The bleak figures from the Office of Management and Budget, which also projected overall growth this year at just 1.7 percent, serve as further confirmation of a sputtering economy while dramatizing the challenge Obama will face in making his case for re-election. The 1.7 percent growth rate is a full percentage point less than the administration predicted at the beginning of the year. The economy promises to be the leading-edge issue of the 2012 White House sweepstakes, and Obama already is facing a host of ...

Recovery Bummer: Productivity Falls in Spring, Labor Costs Rise
Post Date: 2011-09-01 13:35:15 by Happy Quanzaa
12 Comments
From The Associated Press: Worker productivity fell this spring more quickly than previously estimated while labor costs were rising at a faster clip. Both developments could pose threats to a fragile economic recovery. The Labor Department reported Thursday that productivity declined at an annual rate of 0.7 percent in the April-June period, a bigger drop than the 0.3 percent decline reported a month ago. Labor costs rose at an annual rate of 3.3 percent, faster than the 2.4 percent increase originally reported. The changes reflected downward revisions made last week to overall economic growth which showed the economy’s output barely growing in the spring. Declining productivity, ...

Now we know where the tipping point lies. Debt becomes poisonous once it reaches 80pc to 100pc of GDP for governments, 90pc of GDP for companies, and 85pc of GDP for households. From then on, extra debt chokes growth. Stephen Cecchetti and his team at the Bank for International Settlements have written the definitive paper rebutting the pied pipers of ever-escalating credit. “The debt problems facing advanced economies are even worse than we thought.” From the Chicago Tribune 1934, sent to me by a reader The basic facts are that combined debt in the rich club has risen from 165pc of GDP thirty years ago to 310pc today, led by Japan at 456pc and Portugal at 363pc. “Debt is ...

Summer dithering could trigger autumn panic The direction must become clear soon because the financial markets are, by nature, impatient. By Telegraph View The Telegraph (UK) 8:34PM BST 29 Aug 2011 After a turbulent week or two in the middle of August, the markets managed to calm down despite witnessing the biggest falls in equity prices since the banking crisis of 2008. With summer now at an end and traders returning to their desks, this is the moment of greatest peril. The worst market panics in history have happened in the autumn, including the Wall Street Crash of October 1929, Black Monday of October 1987 and the ejection of sterling from the Exchange Rate Mechanism in September ...

Obamanomics stays on path to failure with Krueger
Post Date: 2011-08-30 08:49:42 by Happy Quanzaa

Any hopes that President Obama might somehow recognize the utter failure of his economic policies and seek new ideas and directions were dashed by his selection Monday of Princeton University economist Alan E. Krueger to succeed Austan D. Goolsbee as chairman of the Council of Economic Advisers. Krueger previously served as an assistant secretary of the Treasury under Timothy Geithner. Obama praised Krueger's work during the first two years of his administration, and said Krueger's chief task in the new job will be to help develop policy recommendations to get the stagnating economy growing again. Don't expect any new ideas from Krueger. He was among the architects of such ...

Companies, Roubini said, are motivated to minimize costs, to save and stockpile cash, but this leads to less money in the hands of employees, which means they have less money to spend and flow back to companies. Now, in the current financial crisis, consumers, in addition to having less money to spend due to the above, are also motivated to minimize costs, to save and stockpile cash, magnifying the effect of less money flowing back to companies. "Karl Marx had it right," Roubini said in an interview with wsj.com. "At some point capitalism can self-destroy itself. That's because you can not keep on shifting income from labor to capital without not having an excess ...

Obama's Jobs Program

As the President suns himself at his $50,000 a week estate in Martha's Vineyard, the nation's economy continues to struggle, with new housing starts falling and delinquent mortgage payments on the rise. As he was leaving for his vacation, Obama promised to unveil a new "jobs program" when he gets back. Undoubtedly, it will be another Keynesian pump priming disaster, just like Obama's "stimulus", which will do nothing to help the economy. Keynesian economics should have been completely discredited in the 1970s. According to Keynesians and their Phillips Curve, you cannot have high inflation and high unemployment at the same time. Yet, this is exactly what he ...

Morning Examiner: Quake exposes Keynesian fraud

Mere minutes after the earth stopped shaking yesterday, The Examiner‘s Tim Carney tweeted out: “Krugman says it wasn’t big enough.” Carney was making light of New York Times columnist Paul Krugman’s faith in Keynesian economics, which preaches that when the economy is not utilizing all of its productive capacity, increased spending on anything, even digging ditches, can increase economic growth. Just like Krugman has been arguing that President Obama’s $821 billion stimulus was not big enough, Carney mockingly predicted that Krugman would also complain that the earthquake failed to do enough damage to justify a large rebuilding spending spree.

Gold retreats from record high above $1,900/oz (I feel sorry for the suckers who bought gold recently) By Jan Harvey LONDON | Tue Aug 23, 2011 7:22am EDT (Reuters) - Gold prices retreated more than 1 percent from record highs on Tuesday as a recovery in appetite for assets seen as higher risk, such as stocks, took the steam out of a rally that many saw as overdone above $1,900 an ounce. A hike in margin requirements for gold forwards on the Shanghai Gold Exchange also helped curb the precious metal's scorching rise.

According to the National Bureau of Economic Research, the Great Recession ended almost two years ago, in the summer of 2009. Yet we’re all uneasy. Job growth has been disappointing. The recovery seems fragile. Where should we head from here? Is that question even meaningful? Can the government steer the economy or have past attempts helped create the mess we're still in? In "Fight of the Century", Keynes and Hayek weigh in on these central questions. Do we need more government spending or less? What's the evidence that government spending promotes prosperity in troubled times? Can war or natural disasters paradoxically be good for an economy in a slump? Should more ...

As Chavez Pulls Venezuela's Gold From JP Morgan, Is The Great Scramble For Physical Starting?

In addition to the nationalization of his gold insutry, Chavez earlier also announced that he would recover virtually all gold that Venezuela hold abroad, starting with 99 tons of gold at the Bank of England. As the WSJ reported earlier, "The Bank of England recently received a request from the Venezuelan government about transferring the 99 tons of gold Venezuela holds in the bank back to Venezuela, said a person familiar with the matter. A spokesman from the Bank of England declined to comment whether Venezuela had any gold on deposit at the bank." That's great, but not really a gamechanger. After all the BOE should have said gold. What could well be a gamechanger is that ...

Let Pharaoh do this, and let him appoint officers over the land, to collect one-fifth of the produce of the land of Egypt in the seven plentiful years. And let them gather all the food of those good years that are coming, and store up grain under the authority of Pharaoh, and let them keep food in the cities.

Big Government's Big Spending Has Boosted Inflation and Killed 3.5 Million Jobs

Rising prices are no surprise to anyone who has been following the actions of Ben Bernanke's Fed. Two rounds of "quantitative easing" injected more than $2.3 trillion into bank reserves, and thus to some extent into the economy. The more money chasing products and services, the more those products and services cost.Bernanke's thinking was that by pumping trillions into the financial system, he could spur lending, investing, and spending via lower interest rates, and thus goose the economy. But the strategy not only hasn't improved the economy, it has also had two major bad side-effects. Increased inflation is one side-effect, discussed below. But first, let's cover ...

The appointment of yet another deficit commission, to make recommendations for reducing the programmed increases in our national debt over the next 10 years, demonstrates how dysfunctional the political has really become. President Obama appointed a bi-partisan deficit commission last year. In December, they came back with a modest proposal to reduce the planned increase in the debt by $4 trillion over the next 10 years. Obama should of went on TV, held the plan up, and told the American people that we need to do this to fix the economy. Then he should have dumped it in John Boehner's and Harry Reid's laps and focused like a laser beam on building support for it around the ...

White House goes mum on financial crisis The White House was tight-lipped Tuesday on the financial calamity gripping the global economy, just a day after President Obama vowed to "stay on it until we get the job done," inciting new criticism of the president for failing to seize the issue that will define his re-election campaign. Obama remained on the sidelines even as markets rebounded from a historic collapse, canceling an economic event in Springfield and the daily press briefing with reporters. Instead, Obama made an unexpected trip to Dover, Del., to view the return of 30 U.S. servicemen killed in Afghanistan. But the hush from the White House stood out to those ...

Economic Downturn and Bush Policies Continue to Drive Large Projected Deficits

Some lawmakers, pundits, and others continue to say that President George W. Bush’s policies did not drive the projected federal deficits of the coming decade — that, instead, it was the policies of President Obama and Congress in 2009 and 2010. But, the fact remains: the economic downturn, President Bush’s tax cuts and the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq explain virtually the entire deficit over the next ten years (see Figure 1). The deficit for fiscal year 2009 — which began more than three months before President Obama’s inauguration — was $1.4 trillion and, at 10 percent of Gross Domestic Product (GDP), the largest deficit relative to the economy since the ...
