A: Hot economic data folks. The headline PPI came in high at 1.1%, while excluding food and energy in the so-called core PPI came in at 0.1%. Retail sales were strong. The question in my mind is how much weight should be given to the CORE #'s overall as the fed targets inflation; Barry Ritholtz's take on the misleading core is well known . Fact is, the US economy is a mature, resilient economy and as such I think the day of the CORE # has passed. Inflation is OUT there and the fed's model of focusing only on the core needs to be updated so we don't get hit by the 'cruelest tax of all'. Lets discuss.
effects when the bullet impacts at high velocity and yaws in tissue leading to fragmentation and rapid transfer of energy. However, terminal effects can be unimpressive when the bullet fails to yaw or fragment in tissue. The M16 entered United States Army service as the M16 and was put into action for jungle warfare in South Vietnam in 1963, becoming the standard U.S. rifle of the Vietnam War by 1969, replacing the M14 rifle in that role. The U.S. Army retained the M14 in CONUS , Europe , and South Korea until 1970. Since the Vietnam War, the M16 rifle family has been the primary infantry rifle of the U.S. military. With its ...
Mathematicians – Not Economists – Should Run the Fed | The Big Picture
“A number of folks are expressing growing concern about potential overbuilding and worrisome speculation in the real estate markets, especially in Florida . . . Entire condo projects and upscale residential lots are being pre-sold before any construction, with buyers freely admitting that they have no intention of occupying the units or building on the land but rather are counting on ‘flipping’ the properties — selling them quickly at higher prices.” -Jack Guynn, then president of the Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta “I don’t want to leave the impression that we think there’s a huge housing bubble. We believe a lot of the rise in ... market research, surveys and trends

Fed / Rates - UrbanDigs: Analyzing & Consulting on Manhattan Real ...
A: This may be true unless one area of the tradable markets force the fed's hands to raise rates earlier. Imagine a world with surging equities and oil/commodity prices on a souped up reflation trade - can $100 oil, $1,200 gold, and surging commodity prices impact the fed's thinking? How will that help anyone; especially the latter right as unemployment climbs to its ultimate peak for this cycle? As I mentioned before, in my opinion inflation will first come in the form of higher food, higher energy, higher metals, higher commodities across the board, higher taxes, higher rates, higher health care costs, etc..all the ... industry trends, business articles and survey research
Analyzing the Credit Crisis: Was the SEC Missing in Action?
Possessing better data and greater distance from the still current turmoil, this author will do a far better job than anyone can hope to do today. A critical issue that such a history must face will be the extent to which there was a regulatory failure. Indeed, this issue is sufficiently pressing that even at this early point columnists need to address it. Little doubt exists that there were private market failures, as some CEOs (O'Neal at Merrill, Lynch, Cayne at Bear Stearns, and Fuld at Lehman) recklessly increased leverage and concentrated their firm's assets in illiquid real estate investments. But what ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

Don't Let Fed Economists Tell You Otherwise…
by Kartik Athreya criticizing the economics blogosphere is making the rounds, and I am late commenting on it (links to other comments at the end), so here are a few quick responses. Let me start by noting that the essay is not even digitized in a convenient form — it is a pdf — and to me that says a lot about the writers knowledge of how the digital world works. Why not make it available in a convenient form (unless the goal is to overcome the fact that federal reserve work cannot be copyrighted by making it difficult to reproduce)?  (This is an irritation more generally, and the Kansas City Fed is the ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
