Mish's Global Economic Trend Analysis

globaleconomicanalys..
Category: Blogs
Although Mish (aka Mike Shedlock) is not an economist by training, he adroitly gets into the thick of economic data. Mish uses observations made by those in major media, so-called experts and government officials and serves up analysis.

Very biased
If don't agree with his political ideas, but must admit most of his stories are interesting. Sometimes he publishes mail from readers which is always interesting, because it offers a viewpoint from within.

Good to read once in a while. Not a traders blog, but alot of macro-economic articles.

Quite a character
Very smart guy, lots of good nuggets of information here. He does seem to explore things thoroughly with out rushing to judgement just because he disagrees with it. So i think he's a little more credible than many people who write commentary from his slant.

Lets put Mish to the test!
Mish is making bold statements about tomorrows change in Nonfarm payroll and unemployment statistics. "As economists up their forecasts for tomorrow's jobs report, I am lowering mine. First, the recent ADP report suggests private nonfarm employment dropped by 39,000 with expectations of a gain. Second, Gallup Finds U.S. Unemployment at 10.1% in September." If he is right, I'll be shorting everything I can get my hands on. He has mixed reviews so lets see if Mish is on point.

libertarian
Mish is a libertarian who comes on strong with his very politically slanted beliefs. He seems to be very pessimistic and anti- govermnement. Loves gold. He loves to post a newsstory and make funny remarks about it. Rigid, but still interesting to at least see his style once.

For someone of his political slant, he isn't half bad
I disagree with many of the assertions he makes in his blog that I've researched myself. Some of the commentary on China I do agree with. The difficulty comes in trying to write a review about someone who is ideologically opposed to you without letting ideology get in the way of assessing quality.

What makes him unique is that he doesn't seem to automatically dismiss something because he disagrees with it, like many people who write commentary from his slant. He also contains some golden nuggets of original thought and information, even if most commentators seem to disagree with him.

Overall, I wouldn't read his blog first, but I would read it if I was looking for further opinions on an issue. His website isn't very nice and the content area should be larger, which makes for a lot of scrolling. Overall, not bad, but not excellent.

Get Past the Politics & Pessimism and You'll Learn Something
Definitely leans towards "everything's bad" mentality, but he still does find some good stories to post and makes you think. I do like his analysis of daily activity, although he makes a quick jump from economics to politics. Very active poster, so you'll actually have a problem keeping up with his commentary.

Worth a plug into your Google reader.

More Politics Than Economics
If you are of the Right persuasion you might find some reward here. The opinion is jarring and I don't remember the blog been so political in tone (pre-Obama). If you can read past the politics there is a a great blog here. For someone without an economic background it's an excellent source of digestable information.

The best thing I could say is check it out and draw your own conclusion. One can only hope it won't go entirely down the political road.

Entertaining Libertarian Macro Blog
Mish has a definitely got a firm point of view and he pounds it so hard in every post that it almost feels like propaganda

in short

-He's a small govt' advocate- he wants to abolish pensions the federal reserve- privatize prisons and schools etc.

-He's a US deflationist- he believes the private credit destruction in the US outweighs the spending taken on by the public sector-although unlike most defaltionists he is a gold Bull

virtually every post he makes this fit into theses two themes. What he'll usually do is post a snippet of newsstory and then make very humorous biting remarks about how foolish the actors in the story usually are. He will then proclaim why a libertarian solution is the only solution to whatever problem he derides.

he has a very rigid viewpoint but it's still worth a read as he will dig up some really obscure stories that he makes through his commentary really interesting.

In any event you can read this one at your leisure almost none of what he writes is immediately applicable to trading or investing. Very good fun stuff!
