economic trends  - 
 
Stephen King from HSBC warns that the global authorities have alarmingly few tools to combat the next crunch, given that interest rates are already zero across most of the developed world, debts levels are at or near record highs, and there is little scope for fiscal stimulus. "The world economy is sailing across the ocean without any lifeboats to use in case of emergency," he said.
The world authorities have run out of ammunition as rates remain stuck at zero. They have no margin for error as economy falters

Economist Robert J. Samuelson has concerns about China's declining growth rate, but admits that China’s leaders have repeatedly disproved doomsayers. #china  
A faltering China could tip the world back into recession.

I think its simply good business for China to slow a little. Play wait and see with the rest of the world, buy raw materials for next to none and prepare for another boom in a few years when the west gets its act together! There is no such thing as a surplus of housing unless you'd rather live in a "3rd world" country with escalating crime and other social issues. IF, China "crashes" it would only be a strategic move I'd suspect to bury their economic stalkers....

Economic concepts  - 
 
Nash’s contributions to economics are very small, though enormously influential. He was a pure mathematician who took only one course in economics in his studies; more on this fortuitous course shortly. The contributions are simple to state: Nash founded the theory of non-cooperative games, and he instigated an important, though ultimately unsuccessful, literature on bargaining. Nash essentially only has two short papers on each topic, each of which is easy to follow for a modern reader. #gametheory   #nash  
I'm in the midst of a four week string of conferences and travel, and terribly backed up with posts on some great new papers, but I can't let the tragic passing today of John Nash go by without com...

inequality  - 
 
A report from the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development, a Paris-based group of industrialized nations, says that greater inequality is associated with slower economic growth. That is in large part because in more unequal societies the poorest people have less access to education, training and good jobs.
See:  http://www.keepeek.com/Digital-Asset-Management/oecd/employment/in-it-together-why-less-inequality-benefits-all_9789264235120-en#page1
A new report shows that inequality today leads to more in the future.

Brazil's central bank chief renewed his commitment to slash inflation to the center of a government target by the end of 2016, signaling more interest rate hikes in Latin America's largest economy. Speaking at a central bank event in Rio de Janeiro, Alexandre Tombini stressed that policymakers would remain "vigilant" to ensure the inflationary impact of sharp rises in government-managed prices this year does not spread out into 2016 and beyond. He said the central bank was focused on bringing consumer inflation, currently running at an 11-year high of 8.2 percent, back to the midpoint of a government target that ranges from 2.5 percent to 6.5 percent.   #brazil

Four interrelated issues lie at the heart of Japan’s economic challenge: ending deflation, raising growth, securing fiscal sustainability, and maintaining financial stability. These objectives need to be achieved against the background of Japan’s rapidly aging society, entrenched deflationary expectations, and a global economy that remains mired in subdued growth.   #japan   #abe   #imf

The sweep of Bahl’s book is panoramic and he covers globalization, 9/11 and the war on terror, the economic crisis and its impact on the Indian and Chinese economies, the rise of the BRICs (Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa), the liberalization of the Indian economy and the troubled and convoluted political relationship between India and the U.S.

The shortages have been going on since March despite the fact that, according to the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation, Nigeria produces about 2.5 million barrels of crude oil per day. The problem is Nigeria does not have the capacity to refine enough of its own oil into fuel to meet the needs of its population of 150,177 million people. Fuel in Nigeria is used not just to run cars and transport for goods and services, but also to power generators for homes and businesses; most Nigerians get only a few hours of electricity a day.
The companies that import fuel claim they have not been paid by the Nigerian government -- and so they cut off the supply. As a result, Africa's largest economy has ground to a halt. #nigeria  
Nigeria is Africa's largest oil producer, and the continent's largest economy, but the country has been left paralyzed by fuel shortages.

books on economics  - 
 
To understand the central issues in economic policy debates, we need not one lesson, but two. The first lesson, implicit in Hazlitt’s One Lesson is:
Lesson 1: Market prices reflect and determine opportunity costs faced by consumers and producers.

The second lesson is the product of more than two centuries of study of the way markets work, and the reasons that they often fail to work as they should:

Lesson 2: Market prices don’t reflect all the opportunity costs we face as a society.
Over the page, the draft preface for my book-in-progress, Economics in Two Lessons I got some great comments first time round, but I can see it would be easier if I presented my drafts in a more or...

Chinese Premier Li Keqiang unveiled billions of dollars in financing and trade agreements for Brazil’s biggest companies, part of a broader effort to deepen ties with Latin America despite an economic slowdown. The investments are largely aimed at strengthening Brazil’s aging infrastructure and at helping the commodity-dependent nation weather lower prices for metals, crude oil and other commodities. After riding the coattails of China’s breakneck growth in the last decade, Latin America’s largest economy is widely expected to fall into recession this year—partly due to softening demand from China.
Chinese Premier Li Keqiang kicked off a tour of South America by unveiling billions of dollars in financing and trade agreements for Brazil’s biggest companies.

economic policy  - 
 
"With the waning of the headwinds ... the U.S. economy seems well-positioned for growth," Yellen said, predicting "moderate" employment and output growth this year and beyond. She also reinforced the notion that rate hikes will depend on incoming economic data and that the tightening process, once it begins, is likely to be gradual. "Yellen believes the economy is improving and that the Fed will raise rates this year," said Wayne Kaufman, chief market analyst at Phoenix Financial Services. "It is just waiting for the right data to do that."
