David Rosenberg from Gluskin Sheff said lending has fallen by over $100bn (£63.8bn) since January, plummeting at an annual rate of 16pc. "Since the credit crisis began, $740bn of bank credit has evaporated. This is a record 10pc decline," he said. Mr Rosenberg said it is tempting fate for the Fed to turn off the monetary spigot in such circumstances. "The shrinking in banking sector balance sheets renders any talk of an exit strategy premature," he said. The M3 broad money supply – watched by monetarists as a leading indicator of trouble a year ahead – has been ...

The Offsetters' Paradox: Wind mills in China highlight incurable ...
to Chinese wind projects highlights one of the core problems with the United Nation’s international carbon credit program, say researchers Richard K. Morse and Gang He at Stanford University . Unless what Morse and He call the ‘Offsetters’ Parardox’ is solved, regulators in the developing world—particularly China and India—will be able to game the carbon market by manipulating domestic policies.   An ‘Offsetters’ Paradox’ occurs when regulators in the developing world (the offsetters) have an incentive to lower their subsidies and tweak power prices to make their ... market research, surveys and trends


Military Spending Patterns in History | Economic History Services
Determining adequate levels of military spending and sustaining the burden of conflicts have been among key fiscal problems in history. Ancient societies were usually less complicated in terms of the administrative, fiscal, technological, and material demands of warfare. The most pressing problem was frequently the adequate maintenance of supply routes for the armed forces. On the other hand, these societies were by and large subsistence societies, so they could not extract massive resources for such ventures, at least until the arrival of the Roman and Byzantine Empires. The emerging nation states of the early modern period ... industry trends, business articles and survey research
Are the banks in trouble?
�The new capitalist gods must love the poor -- they are making so many more of them.� Bill Bonner, �The Daily Reckoning� �The hope of every central bank is that the real problem can be kept from public view. The truth is that the public -- even professionals on Wall Street -- have no clue what the real problem is. They know it has something to do with derivatives, but none of them realize that it�s more than a $20 trillion mountain of unfunded, unregulated paper that has just been discovered to not have a market and, therefore, no real value . . . When the dollar realizes the seriousness of the situation -- be that now or ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

Appendix 4: Brief History
The first Federal campaign finance legislation was an 1867 law that prohibited Federal officers from requesting contributions from Navy Yard workers. Over the next hundred years, Congress enacted a series of laws which sought broader regulation of Federal campaign financing. These legislative initiatives, taken together, sought to: Limit contributions to ensure that wealthy individuals and special interest groups did not have a disproportionate influence on Federal elections; Prohibit certain sources of funds for Federal campaign purposes; Control campaign spending; and Require public disclosure of campaign finances to deter ... technology research, surveys study and trend statistics
Finance theory has a surprisingly short history in economics.   Economists have long been aware of the basic economic function of credit markets but they were not keen on analyzing it much further than that.  As such, early ideas about financial markets were largely intuitive, mostly formulated by practitioners.   Pioneering theoretical work on financial markets, notably that of Louis Bachelier (1900), tended to be basically ignored by theoreticians and practitioners alike. Portfolio Theory This does not mean that the early economists ignored financial markets.   Irving Fisher (1906, 1907, 1930) had ...

Can dealership finance a car if i have no credit history? i am 22 ...
That would depend on the dealership, as financing criteria vary tremendously among dealerships. Most dealerships will not, but some will finance a car for a person with no credit history as long as that person has a steady income and can prove it. Check the car dealers' ads in your local newspaper for no-credit financing promotions. Also, as a last resort, check out used car lots with "buy here, pay here" financing, if there are any in your area (these tend to be prevalent in the southern states, but not elsewhere). Please be aware that if you finance a car with no credit history, you will pay a much higher interest ...
