File image of US President Joe Biden (AP Photo/Alex Brandon) Joe Biden was Barack Obama’s vice president. His Treasury secretary, Janet Yellen, was Obama’s pick to lead the Federal Reserve. The director of Biden’s National Economic Council, Brian Deese, was deputy director of Obama’s National Economic Council. His chief of staff, Ron Klain, was his chief of staff for the first two years of the Obama administration and then Obama’s top Ebola adviser. And so on. The familiar names and faces can obscure how different the new administration, in practice, has become. The problems Biden is facing are an almost perfect inversion of the problems Obama faced. The Obama administration was bedeviled by crises of demand. The Biden administration is struggling with crises of supply. For years, every conversation I had with Obama administration economists was about how to persuade employers to hire and consumers to spend. The 2009 stimulus was too small, and while we avoided a second … [Read more...] about This isn’t the presidency Joe Biden imagined for himself

New York (CNN Business) The stock market is like that old slogan for Timex watches. It takes a licking but keeps on ticking. Sure, it's been a rocky start to the year on Wall Street following a stellar 2021. The Dow is down about 1% and the S&P 500 has fallen 2%. Trading has been volatile. But the Dow and S&P are still each just 3% below their all-time highs. Tech stocks have had a bit more of a wild ride. The Nasdaq is down 5% in 2022 and nearly 8% under its peak, putting it closer to a 10% drop known as a correction. Yet every time it looks like stocks could be heading for an even steeper drop, investors come rushing back in to buy the dips. Traders have so far mostly shrugged off temporary concerns about inflation and the Federal Reserve getting ready to raise interest rates , as well as fears over the impact that the Omicron variant of Covid-19 may have on the economy. Earnings growth has remained strong in spite of these … [Read more...] about Here’s what could rattle the stock market this year
Share to Twitter Share to Linkedin The fact that we are in the grip of a global energy crisis is now beyond doubt. In the UK there are a slew of energy businesses going into administration, and pleas for government bailouts for energy intensive manufacturers. In the domestic economy, there are spiralling numbers of old people who, having survived Covid-19, are forecast to perish unless the winter is exceptionally mild. In recent months, France has seen some of its fastest growing green energy suppliers lose customers at a rapid rate, as the green premium looks increasingly unaffordable. Hydroption, a supplier of low carbon electricity, has been placed under judicial administration after failing to pay its suppliers and debts. India has suffered too, with shortages of coal in the second half of 2021 leading to outages and curbs imposed on energy hungry industries. In China, companies in the industrial heartlands have been told to limit consumption, and … [Read more...] about Will The Energy Crisis Help Clean-Up Bitcoin?
