Fed Releases Latest Economic Forecast Which Will Be Proven 100% Wrong

Tyler Durden's picture





 

With a few minutes to go until Ben speaks, the entirely useless projections are out (as noted before by Reuters that the Fed has been constantly wrong in its forecasts). The stunning punchline is that according to the Fed things are not as bad as one would have expected given the dramatic open-ended shart-fest that Bernanke is portraying. In fact, things are improving per the FOMC! Though we assume that these projections are self-defeating since they likely include this new policy. Be interested to see the pre-policy projections.

  • *FED OFFICIALS SAY GROWTH WILL IMPROVE FASTER THAN JUNE OUTLOOK
  • *FED: 2012 GROWTH OF 1.7%-2.0% VS 1.9%-2.4% IN JUNE
  • *FED: 2013 GROWTH OF 2.5%-3.0% VS 2.2%-2.8% IN JUNE
  • *FED: 2014 GROWTH OF 3.0%-3.8% VS 3.0%-3.5% IN JUNE
  • *FED: JOBLESS END OF 2012 AT 8.0%-8.2% UNCHANGED FROM JUNE
  • *FED: JOBLESS END OF 2013 AT 7.6%-7.9% VS 7.5%-8.0% IN JUNE
  • *FED: 2012 PCE INFLATION OF 1.7%-1.8% VS 1.2%-1.7% IN JUNE
  • *FED: 2013 PCE INFLATION OF 1.6%-2.0% VS 1.5%-2.0% IN JUNE

One wonders, whether in addition to having excel models which appoarently do not recognize circular assumptions, if the Fed's forecasts also assume $10 gas, $100 loaves of bread, and $10,000 gold?

Assetman's picture

Perhaps.

But isn't it curious that PCE inflation estimates were revised HIGHER from June... yet they STILL decided that throwing more printed money in the system would be a good idea?

You tell me how much sense that really makes.

That being said... I do think the Fed sees a global deflationary wave coming.  If they're right, this policy will look relatively good (though they will still miss on unemployment and appear ineffective on a policy standpoint).

If they're wrong, and inflation starts getting out of hand, the Fed appears confident that they can reverse policy and take liquidity out of the system.

To that, I'd day "Good luck with that".

If employment is allowed to gain a foothold in this country the inflation created through investment, production and output would create so much inflation domestically that the system could not handle it; while they try and print the banks back to solvency. That is why we import everything we need so that we can export the freashly printed dollars (inflation distribution) to the rest of the world. If they lose the Petrodollar/Reserve Currency status that the dollar has it will be the end of the dollar. Period !

FYI if gasoline is $10, gold will have zero value.  $10 oil means no food and no one will trade food for gold.

Gold only has value while the system pretends to exist.  At $10 oil, you have no private purchases and the gov't trying to distribute food.  Gold will not be accepted as payment by the gov't, which would then effectively have all the food.

So, you propose that there will be no private gardens and no black market, in the event of soaring oil prices?

Sure, the Middle East and Asia are screwed, where the population increased 10-fold in under 100 years due to imported food, especially the desert areas.

However, there are plenty of areas where a reduced quantity of food can be produced with less energy. Even if the government nationalizes food production, there will always be people growing their own food in secret.

Unfortunately, flux matters.  That being the rate of the sulfur cycle, the phosphorus cycle, the nitrogen cycle, etc. (all currently sped up several thousand fold by companies like Dupont and Monsanto by burning all kinds of fossil fuel).  Shit, fresh water is going to be an issue, hell it already is in a number of locations. Have you ever supported your family entirely on food you produced?  I have, no easy task my friend and it took about 10 acres of arable land. Admittedly, we have/had livestock.  Do a simply calculation and you find there isn't even enough dry land (much less arable) land for 7 billion people to do this.  Just like the financial terrorists, these agro-terrorists have put the earth into a dangerous situation.  Hedge accordingly.

Correct to a point, the point being that it takes a lot of energy to fix nitrogen period, no way around it.  It Dupont were to shut down their Haber Bosch process, we lose 1/3 of the population in a few years.  They still have plenty of coal and nuclear fuel to burn, of course it will cost significantly more.

Anyone with school level mathematics and basic economics can see that Fed is feeding BS at large ... here's a sample:

Fed's projections of today say unemployment rate for 2013 will be 7.6-7.9% vs 7.5-8% projected in june 2012, which means basically no change. 2014 is projected at 6.7-7.3% vs 7-7.7% projected in june 2012, which is 0.3% improvement. So, is the Fed saying it will do the just announced $85 billion per month intervention for the next 2 years, and stilla chieve a 0.3% fall in unemployment vs what it estimated in june 2012 ??

I have a question. I've heard all of my life that the FED was created to smooth out business cycles and prevent another "great depression" from happening. Yeah, yeah, I know the real goal was to transfer wealth to banksters, but ignoring that - how do they get away with saying they would prevent another 'great depression'?

If I'm not mistaken, the FED was chartered in 1913 and the 'great depression' occurred between 1929 and 1941...........

So, THE great depression we hear about ad nauseum from Bernanke and company was actually on the FED's watch, no? What the hell.......

Back in the great depression, you had millions unemployed, and millions being fed in bread lines. Now you have about 55% of the eligible employed (16-65 year old) so basically 45% total unemployment of those eligible to work, and little plastic cards issued by the government to feed 46 million and counting....The only differences with this depression and the last one is that the last one was purely deflationary, with most things falling in value, and this one is both: housing prices falling but most other thins like food and fuel going up in an inflationary manner because of the printing pre$$ action. This depression is well hidden, but look around at how many more homeless you see, the tent cities on the edge of the towns, etc. Housing prices are actually just returning to where they should be, after being blown up in a 20 year bubble.

These guys at the FOMC (save for Jeffrey Lacker, perhaps) have gone full retard on the delusional scale.

They are so deeply wed to the belief that high unemployment has little structural relevance-- that they are willing to up the ante with more QE each and every time they don't get the employment results they want to see.

But now, it appears, that they are moving in a direction where very close to removing the constraints on inflation targets in order to achieve their open-ended employment goals.  It's about as close to ignoring the price stability mandate as one could possibley imagine.

And some wonder why gold spiked along with Treasury yields this afternoon...

It's time for a serious discussion as to where silver is headed.

 

1st of all, I don't rely a lot on charts, because of all the manipulation.  I like to use reason and common sense.

Things like the gold/silver ratio, previous lows/highs, CURRENT 'market' environment, etcetera.

 

Silver ALREADY hit nearly $49, so I (IMHO) think $50 is a given, and soon (mid-2013?)

I think we ALL believe that another market collapse is coming.  Since the QE3 is now 'open-ended', the crash will have to be caused by some black swan, not for lack of money printing to prop up the market.

IF another collapse occurs, I (IMHO) think silver, oil and stocks will retreat to WELL BELOW their 2009 lows.

Summary:  Silver should get to AT LEAST $65-$70 between now and (2 years from now-end of mbs purchases?).

My plan:  SELL bullion when market reaches low $60-s.  Hoard cash, wait 'till crash.  Buy back in, silver sub $20....yes, $18.  I (again, IMHO) think silver will ONE LAST TIME go below $20, with the next history-making economy-paralyzing stock market worldwide financial crash to end all crashes.

Purchase silver that ONE LAST TIME with your previously hoarded cash. 

Get rich. Literally.  What say ye?

Caveats to previous post:

 

1. Silver COULD go to $100 in the next two years.

2. The stock market MAY NOT crash (see Japan Nikkei-this sucker's goin' down!).

3. Silver MAY NEVER go back below $30.  If you sell, you may be outa luck.

4. Who wants to hoard fiat?  No one!  But, it's all we have (to convert silver to b4 the crash).

5. Silver to $75-100 in 2 years = Parabolic= sell.

6. ................?

The remark about circular assumptions made me wonder if they keep using the same assumptions or if they have actually tried back testing their computer models and if any have been any better than a guess. Are they trying to influence market behavior with their forecasts rather than predict it like so many of the so called polls that try to change outcomes rather than reflect opinions.
