The Japanification of Europe

August 31st, 2014 · No Comments

  • The eurozone is resembling Japan’s lost decades ever closer on a host of metrics, including demographics, growth, inflation, yields and debts. In some respects, the eurozone crisis actually resembles the Great Depression of the 1930s.
  • If policy makers do not respond to this crisis, things are likely to get worse rather than better.
  • Japan responded with new policy initiatives, getting it out of deflation; its stocks remain a better bet until the ECB wakes up.

Keynesian versus supply-side economics

August 25th, 2014 · No Comments

  • In the battle of economic ideas, one that has been raging for nearly four decades is that between supply-siders and Keynesians.
  • While we think some supply-side measures can be useful, one really has to be specific as to the kind of measures and expected effects, it’s all in the details.
  • A general supply-side approach seems a little out of place as a recipe to combat what is a distinctly Keynesian crisis.

  • So we should expect the recovery to stall, the dollar, stocks and bonds to fall when the Fed stops these purchases.
  • Not only is this not happening, some of these markets are actually up, like the bond market. So who is right, bonds or Peter Schiff?

Is the Fed falling behind the curve?

August 23rd, 2014 · No Comments

  • The nature of the 2008/9 crisis was different from previous crisis, and the nature of the recovery also differed.
