The New Finance Capitalism

In a new financial landscape in which leverage is limited by worldwide regulation and the gradual digestion of toxic assets will weigh on bank’s balance sheets, the US will face tougher terms to finance its external imbalance. Perfectly at odds with the global imbalance premonitions of the early 2000s, the dollar’s weakness will likely be the best gauge of the turnaround of the global crisis. For several years before the current crisis, economic doomsayers predicted an apocalyptic scenario where investors would turn their back on US assets, leading to a downward spiral of dollar weakening and US rate steepening. While this ...

Steve Keen's Scary Minsky Model « naked capitalism
I had the pleasure of finally meeting Steve Keen (he and his wife Melina are in New York) and it turns out he is adventuresome eater as well as thinker (he ordered maguro and natto even though I warned him, although I must say this restaurant’s version was actually gaijin friendly). Steve told me about his presentation at a recent Minsky conference in Boston, and reader Don B had separately just e-mailed me about it. The entire talk is worth reading, and I thought I’d extract a few key parts. Keen, following Minsky, looks aggregate demand as GDP plus the change in private debt. Growth in debt contributed to this ... market research, surveys and trends
Waltzing at the Doomsday Ball: Capitalism is dead, but we still ...
Ajijic, Jalisco, MexicoAs an Anglo European white guy from a very long line of white guys, I want to thank all the brown, black, yellow and red people for a marvelous three-century joy ride. During the past 300 years of the industrial age, as Europeans, and later as Americans, we have managed to consume infinitely more than we ever produced, thanks to colonialism, crooked deals with despotic potentates and good old gunboats and grapeshot. Yes, we have lived, and still live, extravagant lifestyles far above the rest of you. And so, my sincere thanks to all of you folks around the world working in sweatshops, or living on two ... market research, surveys and trends


Global Trade Imbalance and Deflation
Deflation is a problem that looms over the horizon when the US debt bubble bursts to slow down the economy. Yet investors are motivated to buy US bonds to lock in current high yields if they expect the Federal Reserve, the central bank, to cut short-term rates in the near future to stimulate a slowing economy. When investor demand for bonds is strong, mortgage lenders can offer lower mortgage rates for home buyers because high bond prices lead to lower bond yields.  Thus a pending economic slowdown in its incubating phase actually fuels a housing bubble by the abundant availability of cheap money. But there ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

Disaster Capitalism's Catastrophic Success In Ireland … And America
It probably seems like I’m “a day late and a dollar short,” with a post about Ireland’s economic disaster days after the New York Times story about the high cost of austerity measures in Ireland echoed all over the progressive blogosphere. But I’m not. It just took me a few days to recover from the intense deja-vu. See, back in April, the Heritage Foundation ranked Ireland #5 in its “economic freedom” index for 2010. That, of course, warranted some investigation. I can’t claim to have known much about Ireland or it’s economy at the time. But a few days of research was enough ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
Ferguson Fills Temple With Moneylenders
Railing against the greed and impiety of commerce, Jesus threw the money-lenders out of the Temple, according to the New Testament. On Tuesday night in London, Niall Ferguson invited them in, to St.Paul’s Cathedral, and then railed against them all the same. Harvard professor and fellow of both Stanford and Oxford, Ferguson is probably the closest thing economic history has to a superstar, with a healthy opinion of his own abilities even if he doesn’t quite consider himself the Son of God. His evening lecture “Men, Money and Morality: How Can Trust In Banking Be Restored?” was delivered to a packed house. ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

George P. Baker and George David Smith have written the best book on leveraged buyouts and KKR. It is not likely that any better book will ever be written on this topic. Baker and Smith, who are economists, were commissioned by George Roberts of KKR to write the history of the firm's investments. They were given access to private records and were able to interview the principal participants in those investment projects. Separate from the reports written for KKR, Baker and Smith were allowed by KKR to publish a book on the topic utilizing the information they acquired while serving as consultants on KKR's ...

WikiAnswers - Did the New Deal save capitalism in the US or did it ...
The New Deal stifled Capitalism and prevented free market recovery from happening naturally. This stifling of the free market did not begin with Roosevelt however, Herbert Hoover began the crusade of government intervention into the economy. The policies of Hoover and Roosevelt and their regulations had little to no positive effect on the economy. In fact economic graphs from the era show that the economy was absolutely stifled during the time of government intervention. Contrary to wide held opinions Socialism provided the malaise that allowed Hitler to instill Fascism in the 1930's and 40's, where humans were treated ...
