Kai A Konrad Max of the Max Planck Institute and Holger Zschäpitz of "Die Welt" argue that Europe’s policymakers have got their strategy desperately wrong and that the discussed modifications of the Stability and Growth Pact, including a view on macroeconomic imbalances (transfer models), will hardly work, due to the enormous differences in tax revenues and social security spending among the EU countries:

Mises Institute: Global Inflation, June 10, 2011

Central bank liquidity is gushing everywhere, leading to protests over high prices in India, Ukraine and China, the Financial Times reports.

Stefan Wagstyl and Jonathan Wheatley write, “The main driver of inflation in the past 18 months has been the soaring rise in oil, food, and raw materials prices, powered by growing demand from China, India and other emerging countries.”

Of course the price increases are the result of money printing and not the “main driver of inflation.”

Prices are rising at a 25% clip in Argentina, while the that government claims the number to be 10%.

Some Chinese employers are having to hike wages 20% to 40% and Brazil’s minimum wage is set to increase 6% this year and possibly 14% next.

And while the public always accuse merchants of gouging them with higher prices, the F-T piece points out, “higher costs are squeezing industry’s margins.”

Meanwhile the IMF claims core inflation is up 2-3.75% and Ben Bernanke contends the rise in commodity prices is “transitory.”

Reputed Berkeley professor and currency specialist Barry Eichengreen warns in his latest Project Syndicate of a low dollar.

Project Syndicate: How to Kill a Dollar, by Barry Eichengreen, June 9, 2011

He explains why a low dollar, often mentioned as a remedy for tje highly indebted US, could have a tremendous negative effect in a next downturn:

"The result would be the Fed’s worst nightmare. With Treasury yields spiking and economic activity collapsing, the Fed would want to cut interest rates and flood the markets with liquidity. But a sharply lower dollar would, at the same time, mean sharply higher inflation, requiring it to tighten policy. Caught on the horns of this dilemma, the Fed could do nothing to solve America’s problems."

Project Syndicate: Money Magic, Raghuram Rajan, June 8, 2011

Economic growth in the United States seems to be slowing again. This might reflect temporary factors, like the Japanese tsunami, which disrupted supply chains and caused some factories to suspend operations. Also, high oil prices have taken a toll on disposable income, impeding growth in consumption demand. This has led to a build-up of inventory – and thus to cuts in production. read more

IMF: Information Rigidity in Growth Forecasts: Some Cross-Country Evidence, by Loungani, Prakash, Stekler, Herman, Tamirisa, Natalia T., June 1, 2011

Summary:

"We document information rigidity in forecasts for real GDP growth in 46 countries over the past two decades. We investigate: (i) if rigidities are lower around turning points in the economy, such as in times of recessions and crises; (ii) if rigidities differ across countries, particularly between advanced countries and emerging markets; and (iii) how quickly forecasters incorporate news about growth in other countries into their growth forecasts, with a focus on how advanced countries‘ growth forecasts incorporate news about emerging market growth and vice versa."

On the contribution of monetary policy to economic fluctuations, by Olivier Coibion, June 8, 2011

What effect do interest-rate changes have on economic growth? Most studies suggest that the answer is “not much”. This column points out that a lot of these studies use US data from the early 1980s when monetary policy was under the “Volcker experiment”. When this episode is excluded, this column finds that the implied contribution of policy shocks to historical US business cycle fluctuations is much larger than found in much of the literature. read more on Vox

Find here an ECB paper about the improvement potential in fiscal data revision in the EU area:

Castro, Francisco De, Perez, Javier J. and Rodríguez Vives, Marta, Fiscal Data Revisions in Europe (May 13, 2011). ECB Working Paper No. 1342.

Abstract:

"Public deficit figures are subject to revisions, as most macroeconomic aggregates are. Nevertheless, in the case of Europe, the latter could be particularly worrisome given the role of fiscal data in the functioning of EU’s multilateral surveillance rules. Adherence to such rules is judged upon initial releases of data, in the framework of the so-called Excessive Deficit Procedure (EDP) Notifications. In addition, the lack of reliability of fiscal data may hinder the credibility of fiscal consolidation plans. In this paper we document the empirical properties of revisions to annual government deficit figures in Europe by exploiting the information contained in a pool of real-time vintages of data pertaining to fifteen EU countries over the period 1995-2008. We build up such real-time dataset from official publications. Our main findings are as follows: (i) preliminary deficit data releases are biased and non-efficient predictors of subsequent releases, with later vintages of data tending to show larger deficits on average; (ii) such systematic bias in deficit revisions is a general feature of the sample, and cannot solely be attributed to the behavior of a small number of countries, even though the Greek case is clearly an outlier; (iii) methodological improvements and clarifications stemming from Eurostat’s decisions that may lead to data revisions explain a significant share of the bias, providing some evidence of window dressing on the side of individual countries; (iv) expected real GDP growth, political cycles and the strength of fiscal rules also contribute to explain revision patterns; (v) nevertheless, if the systematic bias is excluded, revisions can be considered rational after two years."
