ein paar interessante artikel zu den themen wachstum, inflation, consumer spending und housing market, allerdings in english:

Extract: If inflation does keep rising, it will be important to remember another basic policy rule: the number of policy targets must be equaled by the number of policy instruments, and where a single instrument confronts multiple targets, it must be aimed at the target it can best attain. Monetary policy alone cannot produce both price stability and growth, and it works best when aimed at price stability. If the Fed has to choose between maintaining stable prices and maintaining growth, it will choose price stability. That is the lesson of the post-Volcker era “Great Moderation” of inflation and volatility, and Ben Bernanke knows it well.

The housing market is already coming off the boil (see article). If prices merely flatten, the economy could slow sharply as consumer spending and construction are squeezed. If house prices fall as a result of higher bond yields, the American economy could even dip into recession. Less spending and more saving is just what America needs to reduce its current-account deficit, but for American households used to years of plenty it will hurt.
