Where It All Went Wrong: The U.S. ‘Recovery’ Is Hollow, The Fed’s Growth Narrative Is False

By Jeffrey P. Snider, Alhambra Investment Partners With the housing recovery, it is perhaps because it has been much more visible and earnest that the disparity is more easily appreciated and understood. Prices have surged in some places as much as the housing mania portion of the great bubble of the 2000’s, yet that has taken … Continue reading

Nigeria’s Deal With China Will Not Solve Its Problems

By Kira Munk At a recent business forum hosted in Beijing, Nigeria secured $6 billion USD worth of investments from the Chinese government. An unfortunate by-product of these plans is that short-term economic gains are being sought out at the expense of long-term parity that could contribute to the stability of the relationship. With a weakening … Continue reading

How Long Before The Global Financial System Fails?

By Egon Von Greyerz, Goldbroker.com The global economy turned down in earnest already in 2006 but with a massive worldwide printing and lending programme, the world has had a temporary stay of execution.

The U.S. Economy Officially Joins The Global Economic Slowdown

By Michael Snyder Even the government is admitting that the U.S. economy is slowing down.  On Thursday, we learned that U.S. GDP grew at just a 0.5 percent annual rate during the first quarter of 2016.  This was lower than analysts were anticipating, and it marks the third time in a row that the GDP number … Continue reading

FOMC Statement Demonstrates Firm Grasp Of The Obvious

By Marc Chandler The FOMC delivered a statement largely as expected.  It upgraded its assessment of the global economy by dropping the reference to risks.  It downgraded its assessment of the domestic economy by acknowledging that growth has slowed.

Chinese Dragon: Breathing Credit Fumes

The Thing About Economic Bubbles

By Jeff Fitchett There are tell-tale signs of bubbles. All throughout history bubbles have been formed, popped, a depression ensued and then another bubble formed.  The characteristics of bubbles are very similar. Group think is one of the key components. Rational thinking is set aside as more and more people crowd into a purchasing frenzy … Continue reading

By Michael Snyder If nobody is working in one out of every five U.S. families, then how in the world can the unemployment rate be close to 5 percent as the Obama administration keeps insisting? The truth, of course, is that the U.S. economy is in far worse condition than we are being told. Last … Continue reading

The Economy As It Is, Or The Economy As It ‘Should’ Be

By Jeffrey P. Snider, Alhambra Investment Partners The mainstream view of the unemployment statistics suggest that any weakness in the US economy, manufacturing or beyond, will be temporary and shallow because employment growth remains robust. The question is not whether the statistics suggest such a trend but rather if those accounts correspond with anything real. As … Continue reading
