Analysis and criticism of America's most prominent public intellectual and champion of Keynesian economics. I am part of the Austrian School of Economics, and I critique Krugman's writings from that perspective. There are two reasons why I believe Keynesian economic analysis is popular not only in academe but also in government circles. The first is obvious: any kind of analysis that claims only government can create prosperity is going to be the ideology of choice by those in government, and those who believe that they should be empowered to tell others what to do. The second reason is that Keynesian analysis is ...
According to the theory, the business cycle unfolds in the following way: Low interest rates tend to stimulate borrowing from the banking system. This expansion of credit causes an expansion of the supply of money , through the money creation process in a fractional reserve banking system. It is asserted that this leads to an unsustainable credit-sourced boom during which the artificially stimulated borrowing seeks out diminishing investment opportunities. Though disputed, proponents hold that a credit-sourced boom results in widespread malinvestments . In the theory, a correction or " credit crunch " – commonly ...

The New Powerlessness: Even Better Than the New Normal - Hit & Run ...
Private companies aren’t firing workers and hoarding cash because interest rates are too high. They’re doing so because there’s too much factory and labor capacity. The federales need to start randomly buying stuff and destroying it. Maybe the Presidential Suit and his sidekick "Comedy Relief" can go back to that window factory in Chicago, and bring their hammers. The Marines can always use some more V22s. Well, I guess we could start by breaking every window in Washington DC... with nuclear bombs. You know you could just start posting articles repeating, "We're fucked." over and over. Sounds like the ... market research, surveys and trends
A Response to Paul Krugman | The League of Ordinary Gentlemen
obel Prize winning economist Paul Krugman’s existence in the popular consciousness largely rests on ideological antagonism.  Krugman’s infamous September 2009 New York Times Magazine editorial, “ How Did Economists Get It So Wrong? “, attacking University of Chicago’s  John Cochrane and others, was the “ Hit Em Up ” of economic policy debate. “How Did Economists Get It So Wrong?” is noted for, among other things, resurrecting the terms “saltwater economics” and “freshwater economics”, and thereby grossly oversimplifying the way economics is discussed in ... market research, surveys and trends

Illusion of Prosperity: A Grand Unified Theory of Real Estate ...
I live in the USA and I am concerned about the future. I created this blog to share my thoughts on the economy and anything else that might catch my attention. Let's start with a theory that there is a constant ratio between the market value price of real estate assets and the replacement-cost value of structures. No matter what the government tries to do, this ratio cannot be altered. It can be temporarily distorted but it cannot be permanently changed. The linear trend line does not support this theory but let's give it a try anyway. Let's use the average value of the ratio in the chart above to generate a new ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

"I have this to say to my fellow Germans in East Germany: The introduction of the social market economy offers you every chance, in fact, even a guarantee, that (the East German states of) Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania, Saxony-Anhalt, Brandenburg, Saxony and Thuringia will soon become blossoming landscapes in Germany once again." -Helmut Kohl, 18 May 1990 As I put it in May: "Forget about blühende Landschaften [blossoming landscapes] in the former East Germany. Try depression." Almost twenty years after former German Chancellor Helmut Kohl made his remarks, there remains a wide gulf between the former DDR’s economic ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

The ETA Economic Recovery, Depression Dead Ahead
Economic experts have used letters like U, V, W, etc. when speaking about the current recession. The letters should represent graphically the course of the recession. The U-shaped recession stands for a fall, some time at the bottom, and a steady recovery. In case of a V-shaped recession, the economy bottoms out quickly and then recovers just as quickly. The concept of using letters is sometimes applied to stock-market bottoms. A good example of a V-shaped crisis was the stock market collapse of 1989, which would not even be called a collapse, if you cut out 1989 and 1990 from the charts. Currently, many distinguished economic ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
The Self-Inflicted Insanity of American Unemployment
indicate. On balance, it would seem that the apparent “ignition” to the economy achieved in March and April through expanding employment, income, spending and production has somehow “sputtered” in May and June. This is indeed disturbing, since such sustained “ignition” is now necessary since fiscal policy is about to go into reverse. There are many costs associated with high unemployment, both economic and social. They include not only daily income losses, which are catastrophic for most Americans, but also increased crime rates, family breakdown, increased incidence of mental and ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

What were the most important causes and effects of the Great ...
The Stock Market Crash in October of 1929 is often cited as the beginning of the Great Depression, but did it actually cause it? The answer is no. First, the stock price for a particular company merely reflects current information about the future income stream of that company. Thus, it is a change in available information that changes the stock price. When the Fed began to raise interest rates in early 1929, this began the tumble. However, a stock market crash could cause people to increase their liquidity preference which might lead them to hoard money. Hoarding Money People hoard money because they have a liquidity ...
How can I justify having luxuries while others lack necessities ...
How can I morally justify spending money on luxuries while others lack necessities? Many reputable charities offer ways to save or vastly improve the lives of people in extreme poverty for small donations. What type of person am I if I spend $10 on a movie ticket, for example, that could be spent on mosquito netting to protect a poor child from malaria or to vaccinate dozens of children against measles? I don't see how giving a fixed percentage of my income, such as tithing, absolves me of further moral responsibility. Perhaps chatfilter, but I'll try to give you an answer. I'm not sure that you can justify ...
