Economist debate: This house believes that we are in a new tech bubble Coverage of the recent online debate on The Economist Online: econ.st The recent initial public offering of LinkedIn has stoked speculation that a new bubble is forming in the world of technology. Those who see a bubble forming claim that investors are valuing each firm as if it will be a winner and ignoring some big risks associated with them. Others argue that we have entered a golden era of the internet that justifies hefty price tags for start-ups. Is the bubble talk overblown? Or is this yet another investment frenzy that will end in tears? Steve Blank and Ben Horowitz debate.

Economist Dean Baker & Rep. Donna Edwards Comment on Deficit Deal "Super Committee" - President Barack Obama welcomed the deficit deal as "an important first step" and urged both parties to work together on a larger plan to cut the deficit. The deal includes no new tax revenue from wealthy Americans and no additional stimulus for the lagging economy. It has a provision to create a joint committee of 12 legislators charged with finding $1.5 trillion in deficit cuts. The committee must hold its first meeting in 45 days and is expected to set in motion a lobbying frenzy. For more, Democracy Now! speaks with Democratic Rep. Donna Edwards of Maryland, who voted against the plan, and economist Dean Baker, co-director of the Center for Economic and Policy Research.

George Galloway interviews economist Jonathan Davis on world economy From BBC: Asian stocks have fallen after fears about a global economic slowdown were fanned by weak US data. South Korea's Kospi dropped 6.2%, Japan's Nikkei 225 fell 2.5% and Australia's ASX shed 3.5%. Investors are worried global growth is slowing more than first thought, and are concerned that major economies are heading back into recession. The falls follow steep losses in the US and Europe on Thursday, and mark a week of stock market declines. Concerns over growth and debt have been building over recent weeks and financial markets have been seeing extreme volatility. Many ***ysts are questioning if a bear market - one in which the long term trend is negative - has now developed and is here to stay. "Bear markets tend to happen when sentiments are low and that comes from weakened demand and bad news flow," Chou Chong of Aberdeen Asset Management told the BBC. "The Western regions are having to face a period of lower growth and dampened demand. That is putting pressure on market sentiment." he added. A number of industry heavyweights such as computer firm Dell have cut their earnings outlooks in recent days. At the same time, investment banks including Morgan Stanley have been revisiting their growth forecasts for this year. On Thursday, Morgan Stanley said that the US and Europe were "dangerously close to recession", despite efforts by policymakers to boost growth and calm markets. "Investors fear that policymakers no longer have the tools to avoid a recession ...

Economist Michael Hudson Strongly Critiques Debt Deal Vote on Democracy Now! - After months of a bitterly partisan stalemate, the US House of Representative has voted 269 to 161 in favor of raising the federal borrowing limit and avoiding a default on the national debt. The final count showed 174 Republican ayes, with Democrats split evenly — 95 on each side. The vote came just hours before a US Department of Treasury deadline that potentially would have seen the United States run out of cash and default for the first time in its history. The bill is expected to be approved by the Senate and signed into law by President Obama today. To ***yze the debt deal, Democracy Now! interviews Michael Hudson, president of the Institute for the Study of Long-Term Economic Trends, Distinguished Research Professor of Economics at the University of Missouri, Kansas City, and author of "Super-Imperialism: The Economic Strategy of American Empire." His website is Michael-. To read the complete transcript, download the podcast, and for more Democracy Now! reports on the debt deal, FOLLOW DEMOCRACY NOW!

JP Morgan Chief Economist - on how to model the economy 19 Aug 2011 Fox News Michael Feroli is JP Morgan Chief US Economist. This video is essential. Mr Feroli rivals the Chinese forecaster in a previous video that I posted earlier to be one of the elite in forecasting the direction of the economy going forward. Background: JP Morgan has cut its US growth forecast for Q4 2011 down to 1.0% from a prior forecast of 2.5%. JP Morgan has cut its US growth forecast for Q1 2012 down to 0.5% from a prior forecast of 1.5%. (Presenter Neil Cavuto) You've obviously ratcheted down your forecast. Why? (Michael Feroli) The latest round of data have continued to show that after getting sub- 1% first-half growth we are probably not getting much better at least early on in the second half. It's really incoming data that's really weaker than expected. (Presenter) What goes into it? The Federal Reserve has said things are going to be slow enough to justify low rates for a while. Do you agree that long a while? (Michael Feroli) I think so. I think it's going to be quite a while before we see the unemployment rate come down to anywhere near to close to acceptable by the standards of the Fed's mandate. Inflation has stayed somewhat sticky to the upside [!] though we do think that should be coming down as well [perhaps, perhaps not?]. I don't see the Fed hiking rates anytime next year. 2013 was actually our call even before last week's statement. So I think that seems a perfectly reasonable forecast to me. (Presenter) Are we globally coming out of ...
