Why 'secular stagnation' matters - BBC News
The question at stake is the issue of "secular stagnation", which is probably the biggest and most important controversy in macroeconomics today. This is not though a debate for the ivory tower, it's an issue with significant real world implications. [...] So what is secular stagnation? It's an idea that originated in the late 1930s with the US Keynesian economist Alvin Hansen. He worried that growth was fundamentally slowing and emphasised demographic factors (such as slowing population growth) as a driver of this. [ western world needs immigration as reproduction level is below 1, capitalism and our economics is fundy based on econ growth, but that is, on the horizon, not possible (excl inflation). what if population is stable!? ] [...] In a nutshell secular stagnation is an attempt to explain the weakness of the global recovery in advanced economies since the 2008 crisis. [ decelerating, debt overhang, balancesheet recession, sov debt crisis ] [...]

Jahresbericht: OECD warnt vor lang anhaltender Stagnation - SPIEGEL ONLINE
OECD-weit setzten die Regierungen vor allem auf bildungs- und arbeitsmarktpolitische Maßnahmen. Sichtbare Erfolge konstatiert der Bericht bei der Reform von Programmen zur Arbeitslosenunterstützung, im Umbau der Rentensysteme und bei der Produktmarktregulierung. Die Steigerung der Arbeitsproduktivität bleibe eine der wichtigsten Voraussetzungen für langfristiges Wachstum. Daher sollten weiterhin vor allem jene Reformen im Fokus stehen, die Fähigkeiten und Qualifikationen fördern, auf denen wissensbasierte Gesellschaften aufbauen, empfehlen die Studienautoren. Ebenso wichtig sei es, die Bildungssysteme so zu gestalten, dass niemand außen vor bleibt.

BBC News - Long, long slog to mend public finances
So the job of mending the public finances is a long way from over. The best performing, big developed economy in the world - that's us by the way, as assessed by speed of GDP growth - is generating far less tax than expected. So this year, the Office for Budget Responsibility expects the harvest for the Exchequer from taxation to be £7.8bn less than it predicted in March. And by 2017-18, it says the shortfall will be an eye-watering £21bn. & the biggest shortfall, roughly half of it, is in income tax, which reflects the creation of lots of new low wage jobs & the absence of meaningful pay rises for millions. [...] reflecting a change in the structure of the economy, rather than a passing phenomenon. [AUSTERITY] The OBR calculates that spending per head in real terms in 2019/20 on the public sector minus health and schools would be £1,290, or 57% less than in 2009/10.

'Monetary morphine' [...] one of the big concerns among investors was the ending of the Fed's monetary stimulus in the US. "As the monetary morphine has started to wear off the patient has come to realise that a lot of the old problems still remain, and yesterday's poor US data helped trigger a rather extreme reaction in not only the stock markets but bond markets too, as complacent investors rushed to hedge themselves. "In essence, investors are asking the question with respect to the recent recovery about whether this is as good as it gets, which rather explains the slump in the oil price, bond yields and stock markets,"

In der Tat sind es nicht mehr die Deutschen allein, die auf die Gefahren der dauerhaft niedrigen Zinsen hinweisen. Auch anderswo bekommt man ob der Billiggeldschwemme ein mulmiges Gefühl. Auf den Finanzmärkten würden die Investoren teilweise sehr hohe Risiken eingehen, warnt etwa Claudio Borio, Chefökonom der Bank für Internationalen Zahlungsgleich in Basel. In der Realwirtschaft, wo eigentlich investiert werden soll, seien die Unternehmen dagegen eher risikoscheu. Borio nennt das eine Störung im System. & bit.ly/1CdseYt

EZB: Draghi kündigt Aufkaufprogramm für Kredite an - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Mit dem Plan reagiert Draghi auf die schwache Wirtschaftslage in der Eurozone. Länder wie Italien, Spanien oder Griechenland kommen - wenn überhaupt - nur sehr langsam aus der Krise. Die dortigen Banken vergeben seit Jahren immer weniger Kredite. Und selbst in großen Ländern wie Frankreich und Deutschland stagnierte die Wirtschaftsleistung zuletzt. Ausdruck findet das auch in der Inflationsstatistik: Die Verbraucherpreise in der Eurozone steigen kaum noch - im September lag die jährliche Teuerungsrate gerade mal noch bei 0,3 Prozent. Um die Wirtschaft in Schwung zu halten, sollen die Preise nach Vorstellungen der EZB aber eher um knapp zwei Prozent pro Jahr steigen. Deshalb versuchen Draghi und seine Kollegen seit Monaten, die Kreditvergabe der Banken zu steigern, um so Wirtschaftswachstum und Preisentwicklung anzutreiben.

BBC News - Most people classed as being in poverty 'have job'
In the 2011-12 period, the amount of earnings before a household was said to be in poverty was £128 a week for a single adult; £172 for a single parent with one child; £220 for a couple with no children, and £357 for a couple with two children. [...] It said the number of people in low-paid jobs had risen, with average incomes falling by 8% since their peak in 2008. [...] But it said that while the overall poverty rate in the UK expressed as a proportion of the population was 21% - the second lowest since reliable official statistics began to be collected in the mid-1990s - the figures understated the squeeze there had been on people with low incomes and those affected by benefit changes. Julia Unwin, Chief Executive of JRF, said: "We have a labour market that lacks pay and protection, with jobs offering precious little security and paltry wages that are insufficient to make ends meet.

EZB hält Leitzins auf historischem Tiefstand - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Trotz der niedrigen Zinsen kommt das billige Geld derzeit nicht bei Unternehmen und Haushalten an. Vor allem in Südeuropa ist die Kreditvergabe weiter rückläufig. Um das zu ändern, wird im EZB-Rat über den Einsatz unkonventioneller Instrumente nachgedacht. Dazu gehören zum Beispiel negative Zinsen für Einlagen der Banken der EZB, aber auch neue langfristige Finanzspritzen.

BBC News - Worrying trends for the UK economy
In other words, the record amount of private debt, which has just reached £1.43 trillion, points to how borrowing has fuelled consumption. As we saw from the crash five years ago when debt was lower than now, debt-fuelled consumption isn't a sustainable or reliable source of growth. [...] Could the UK be facing what the US economist Larry Summers has described as America's "secular stagnation". It's a worry that the ageing population and a slower growth of the labour force mean a slower growing economy.

Bubbles, Regulation, and Secular Stagnation - NYTimes.com
In brief, there is a case for believing that the problem of maintaining adequate aggregate demand is going to be very persistent – that we may face something like the “secular stagnation” many economists feared after World War II. [...] The stability of prices and output masked an underlying unsustainable growth in leverage. [...] Our current episode of deleveraging will eventually end, which will shift the IS curve back to the right. But if we have effective financial regulation, as we should, it won’t shift all the way back to where it was before the crisis. Or to put it in plainer English, during the good old days demand was supported by an ever-growing burden of private debt, which we neither can nor should expect to resume; as a result, demand is going to be lower even once the crisis fades. [...] our current situation may well go on much longer than anyone currently imagines.

Silly Season news | ForexLive
Put bluntly, we now have a potentially dangerous financial structure which encourages borrowing, and discourages saving. The rush to create growth has thrown to one side any inflation concerns - for now. BUT there will be an election in 2015 – at the latest. Should the forward guidance prove accurate, we will enter the build up to that election with continued low interest rates, rising house prices and a positive growth outlook – fertile ground for a Conservative Party overall majority. HOWEVER, should inflation or employment become at odds with the strategy, Mr Carney may be under a lot of pressure to prove his neutrality by tightening in the run up to that election – and as I know, what is least convenient is likely to happen…. + http://www.forexlive.com/blog/2013/08/12/uk-home-buyers-boost-purchases/ - Debt Fueled Recovery.

BBC News - UK wages decline among worst in Europe
The money left over at the end of each month is getting less and less because our salaries have been flatlining while shopping, petrol and energy bills have been rising steadily. [...] Clamping down on inflation, which has been above its 2% target for four years, doesn't appear to be a priority for the new regime at the Bank of England. Mark Carney et al say they will tolerate it above target until unemployment falls below 7%. The tolerance of voters might be tested in the interim as their spending power continues to get eroded.

Schwache Wirtschaft: Frankreich gerät in die Rezession - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Belastet wurde die Wirtschaftsentwicklung im Quartalsvergleich vor allem durch gesunkene Investitionen und geringere private Haushaltsausgaben. Zudem fielen die Exporte, während die Importe stiegen. Gestützt wurde das Bruttoinlandsprodukt lediglich durch gestiegene Staatsausgaben. Diese Stütze für die Konjunktur könnte aber auch bald ausfallen: Frankreichs Regierung will 2014 zum ersten Mal seit mehr als 50 Jahren weniger ausgeben als im laufenden Jahr.

UBS CIO Warns Of Japanese "Abegeddon" Scenario | Zero Hedge
With Nikkei 225 futures having faded their European morning bounce and pressuring back towards the 20% 'bear market' correction levels once again, it seems the 'stampede' is out of growth-expectation-driven equities as JGBs are bid for now. That bid (no matter how hard the BoJ tries) is unlikely to last if the doubt grows as Japan's debt-to-GDP would rise above 300% (from 226% currently) and the 10Y JGB yield could approach 5%!

Bond guru Gundlach on the U.S., China and Apple - Market Extra - MarketWatch
The investing environment since the 1980s has been dominated by an explosion of debt financing, leading to extra consumption and the financial-market expansion that stems from all the extra trading.

“The next 30 years are not going to be the same,” “If instead we go into opposite trend and have debt paid down, the government is not running deficits and [see] rising interest rates potentially, then everything is backwards.”

So Gundlach’s longer-term recommendation is that once that becomes apparent, he would buy emerging-market equities, because of the more supportive growth patterns in those countries.

Investors are largely relying on central banks to boost growth. But Gundlach sees unintended consequences that could weaken growth for decades to come.

He also believes that the Fed’s policies are having the unintended consequence of making it harder for young people to find jobs, because older people are working longer since their savings are no longer enough to live off of.

Morgan Stanley takes a hatchet to UK growth forecasts | ForexLive
Only Italy has lagged UK growth in the past year among major economies but the outlook continues to sour.

Morgan Stanley has cut is 2012 estimate to -0.5% from +0.5% and its 2013 forecast to +1.0% from +1.8%.

They cite four factors:
A deterioration in external outlook, a risk of further muddling through in the eurozone, worse than expected GDP growth in the first half of 2012 and higher borrowing costs and continued weak credit growth in prospect.

Morgan Stanley is now below the consensus for 2012 (0%) and 2013 (1.55%).

---

UK prospects hinges on outcome and developments in Europe. Period. Its banks are exposed to EU big time, Europe is its biggest trading partner, and a weaker Sterling hasn't helped. BOE policy efforts helps only marginally, from here on forward.

BOE QE and ZIRP wont push UK out of subliminal decline.
Current policy forward only reflates debt levels lower.

HOW BRITAIN CAN GROW OLD WITHOUT GOING BROKE
tough choices

In the short-term, ... , growth is the problem.
On the back of the latest industrial production figures it reckons GDP will have risen only 0.1% in the second quarter. Some City economists are even gloomier. Knowing the Office for National Statistics, this at least raises the possibility of a negative second quarter.
Weak growth may not end there. The CEBR (Centre for Economics and Business Research), in a new forecast tomorrow, says without the contribution of a strong consumer and rising government spending, growth will average only 1.8% between now and the end of 2015.
That is about two-thirds of the pre-crisis growth rate and will mean annual government borrowing will be about £20 billion higher at the end of the parliament than forecast at the time of the March budget.
 if Britain’s trend growth has permanently dropped, the public spending that can be afforded in the future will be less than was thought.

UK families need 20pc more cash | City A.M.
FAMILIES with children need to earn up to 20 per cent more than last year just to hit an “acceptable standard of living”, the Rowntree Foundation will argue today.
A working couple with two children need to earn £36,800 per annum simply to cover the family’s basic costs, a report by the foundation has found.
“The squeeze in living standards caused by the combination of rising prices and stagnant incomes is hitting people on low incomes hard,” said author Donald Hirsch, an academic from Loughborough University.
Over the last 10 years the cost of a “minimum” basket of goods has rocketed by 43 per cent, Hirsch found – higher than the 27 per cent increase in the wider consumer price index.

BBC News - British 'rebalancing' brings pain to the High Street
There are three unstoppable forces at work:
A squeeze on consumers' spending power from inflation that significantly outpaces wage, tax-credit and benefit rises;A fear that the squeeze will intensify from expected imminent increases in energy prices and a less imminent rise in interest rates (though with household debt still equivalent to 160% of disposable income, any rise when it does come will be painful);The migration of much of what the high street and small shopping centres do to the Internet.

CRUNCH TIME FOR THE HIGH STREET | City A.M.
cash is king, retailers are advised to handle cash flow (what they have) well.

FASHION retailer Jane Norman was on the brink of collapse this weekend, after all of its stores across the UK were closed for business, signalling imminent insolvency.
Habitat, the furniture retailer founded by Sir Terence Conran in 1964, last week appointed administrators to sell its 33 stores citing cashflow difficulties and the “current tough trading environment for retailers”.
Homeform, the owner of Dolphin Bathrooms and Moben Kitchens, also buckled, putting more that 1,300 jobs at risk.
 French company Kesa admitting last week it was considering “strategic alternatives” for Comet, its British business, including the sale of the chain and delisting from the London market. This came after Dixons Retail reported more than £300m in write-downs on Thursday resulting in a pre-tax loss of £224.1m.

The Threat of 'Screwflation' - Barrons.com
The economic beating that the middle class has taken over the past 30 years, combined with the threat of inflation, is adding to the nation's miseries.

Back in 1980, the richest 1% of Americans captured 9% of national income. Today, the richest 1% receive about a quarter of national income.

On the expense side, there has been an acceleration in the rate of increase in commodity prices over the past several years. This rise falls more heavily on low- and middle-income families, who spend most of their money on the necessities of life. Add rising health care, education and other costs to commodity prices, and the result is a poor foundation for growth.
