    The Federal Reserve's monetary policies have manufactured a "super bubble" that " … may give us the worst economic downturn including the Great Depression," economist Peter Schiff declared during an interview with Accuracy in Media. He explained that low interest rates prop up the government’s feckless fiscal policies and generate " … really systemic structural problems in the economy … " that “manifest themselves in bubbles that then burst." " … the Fed’s policy does not work and has not solved our problems, it has simply exacerbated our problems, and … we're gonna have a currency crisis, we're gonna have...

    CNBC ^ | 05/08/2016 | Trump just exposed America's dirty little secret: Schiff
    Presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump just revealed an inconvenient truth about U.S. debt, the outspoken and often controversial Peter Schiff told CNBC in a recent interview. Last week, Trump joined CNBC's "Squawk Box" last week to discuss a wide range of topics including U.S. debt, interest rates and replacing Fed Chair Janet Yellen. It was Trump's comments about potentially renegotiating the more than $19 trillion in U.S. debt and the sensitivity surrounding higher interest rates that raised eyebrows. While some observers argued that Trump's approach could be tantamount to a debt default, Schiff told CNBC the GOP nominee was...

    Bob BryanJanuary 29, 2016 Based on today's GDP release, it appears that the US economy is slowing but not near any sort of massive collapse. Peter Schiff begs to differ. The CEO and chief global strategist for Euro Pacific Capital, and noted perma-bear, said that serious economic destruction is just a few months away. "I think the Fed is going to have negative interest rates before the election because we're going to be in a serious recession," Schiff told Business Insider on Friday. In fact, Schiff said that we may already be in recession and this one is going to...

    Irwin Schiff died on Friday while in federal custody over charges connected with his refusal to pay taxes and his advising others to do so. His public career began as a popularizer of small-government, Austrian-economics-influenced thought with a popular book mostly about the various ways he thought government actions of various sorts harmed citizens called The Biggest Con. He then shifted to become the most famous popularizer, over many books over decades, of the idea that no one legally owes income tax. According to an obituary notice from his son Peter Schiff, who runs the firm Euro Pacific Capital and...

    "The bubbles are pretty much everywhere," says investment guru and radio host Peter Schiff, CEO of Euro Pacific Capital. "They are in the stock market, they are in the bond market, they are in the real estate market, they are in the U.S. dollar." Schiff sat down with Reason's Matt Welch while at FreedomFest 2015 to discuss the dollar, his support of Rand Paul, and his argument that we are already living in another stock bubble. Video 12:52
  • The United States Is Imploding, On The Eve Of Destruction.

    01/24/2015 6:04:06 AM PST · by alexmark1917 · 45 replies
    The United States is gradually, but unrelentingly, destroying part of itself. The facts to support this are well-documented, told in many ways from past to present. The most egregious example of Americide is our country's treatment of African-Americans. Almost everyone agrees about the evils of slavery, once dismissed simply as a Peculiar Institution. But a debate goes on about reparations, with passionate arguments on both sides, ranging from a demand for a Reparations Superfund for jobs and education, to a claim that blacks actually benefited from slavery because of the years of 'reparations' received through poverty programs. Reparations opponents insist...

    “What I love most about FreedomFest are the debates!”– John Mackey (CEO, Whole Foods Market)Many of my free-market friends have attacked Paul Krugman, the inflammatory New York Times columnist and Nobel Prize winner, for deliberately distorting the facts about the economic recovery, austerity programs in Europe, the federal deficit, taxes, school choice, etc. Krugman has been especially critical of the “Austrians” for predicting double-digit inflation and another recession.In response, Steve Moore, Peter Schiff and Robert Murphy, among others, have challenged Krugman to a formal debate. But Krugman has adamantly refused…Until now!I have just confirmed the Dream Debate of the Century...

    Put simply the program is built on a mountain of false assumptions and is covered by a terrain of unanticipated incentives. Any cleared-eyed observer should conclude that it is perfectly designed to raise the costs of care and wreck the federal budget. However, like just about every other complicated problem that bedevils the nation, the public has become far too caught up in the politics and has ignored the horrific details. The real shock of Obamacare is not the unbelievable ineptitude in which it was launched, but the naiveté in which it was designed. The only thing worse than the...

    When President Obama nominated Janet Yellen to be the next Chair of the Federal Reserve Board the praise he offered was similar to what had already poured in from around the country. In their assessments of Ms. Yellen's long career, Congressman, editors, and academics have underscored how her prescience and caution distinguish her from the reckless overconfidence that have plagued her male colleagues at the Federal Reserve. As proof of her wisdom supporters have pointed to speeches she delivered in 2005 and 2006 in which she supposedly issued clear warnings about the dangers then building in the frothy real estate...

    "I think we have been getting overly optimistic [GDP] assessments from the government," says Peter Schiff, CEO of Euro Pacific Capital, in the attached video. "They want to make GDP appear bigger than it normally would be, and growth to appear bigger. So this is government propaganda." To back up his claim, Schiff points to the fact that ever since the Great Recession in 2008, two-thirds of the BEA's preliminary estimates of GDP have been revised downward, while noting that "the size of the downward revisions has also been 50% greater than the upward revisions. I don't think this is...

    Watch Peter Schiff in 2006/2007 state that the stock market and housing Market were about to crash. Watch the so-called experts laugh at Peter Schiff while claiming that the housing and stock markets were going to rocket upwards. Among the "experts who laughed at Schiff were Art Laffer and Ben Stein. Laffer, Stein and the others were wrong. Very wrong. Peter Schiff was right. By the way, Schiff has predicted an economy and stock market crash in 2013.

That's according to Peter Schiff, the best-selling author and CEO of Euro Pacific Capital, who delivered his harsh warning to investors in a recent interview on Fox Business. "I think we are heading for a worse economic crisis than we had in 2007," Schiff said. "You're going to have a collapse in the dollar...a huge...

    I had the opportunity this afternoon to connect with Peter Schiff, CEO and Chief Global Strategist of Euro Pacific Capital. It was a fascinating conversation, which took place while gold was absolutely collapsing. During the interview, Peter explained that today’s sell-off, triggered by a Goldman Sachs sell recommendation was based on the “false idea” of European Central Bank gold sales hitting the market. Instead he explained, gold is preparing its move “from weak hands to strong hands”, before heading to new all-time highs. When asked his thoughts on the complete panic in the market this afternoon, Peter commented that, ”Gold...

    Earlier this month Oprah Winfrey grabbed headlines with her blockbuster interview with serial doper and international pariah Lance Armstrong. Now, an animated Oprah keeps the momentum going with a harrowing interview with Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke, another major figure who is equally dependent on artificial stimulus to juice his job performance.  In this mock animated interview produced by the Peter Schiff Show, the daily radio broadcast by noted author and economist Peter Schiff, Oprah gets Bernanke to confess to repeated attempts to push up economic statistics through direct and repeated injections of powerful monetary stimulants. His motivation: a competitive central banking culture fixated...

    First of all, I'm in the top two percent. Right now, I'm paying 45% of my total income in income taxes, both to the state of Connecticut and to the federal government, and if you take the 3% Medicare tax. After the tax hikes go into effect next year, more than half -- more than half of my total income is going to go to the government. You tell me, what's fair about that when medieval serfs pay 25%, I'm paying half? I don't care what the majority voted to do, they don't have a right to steal my money...

    Wall St. Journal ^ | 12/6/12 | Peter Schiff
    Democratic Party leaders, President Obama in particular, are forever telling the country that wealthy Americans are taxed at too low a rate and pay too little in taxes. The need to correct this seeming injustice is framed not simply in terms of fairness. Higher tax rates on the wealthy, we're told, would help balance the budget, allow for more "investment" in America's future and foster better economic growth for all. In support of this claim, like-minded liberal pundits point out that in the 1950s, when America's economic might was at its zenith, the rich faced tax rates as high as...

    Now that the Supreme Court has given its narrow blessing to the Affordable Care Act, the big question is whether it will deliver the benefits that its proponents promise. Unfortunately, as it is now constructed, the plan will backfire causing fewer healthy people to buy insurance, raise premiums for those who do, destroy employment opportunities, cripple the health insurance industry, and weaken the economy. In order to guarantee insurance to all, regardless of age, health or pre-existing conditions, the framers of the plan concede that it is essential that the young and healthy (who are less likely to be heavy...

    CEO/Economist Peter Schiff is the Mark Levin Of Economics. Few people can adequately resist what he pronounces about fiscal and economic matters. The Schiff Report is worth watching as well as The Peter Schiff Show. In the above video, Schiff masquerades as a stoner liberal who invites people "on the street" to say why "corporate profits should be banned." And,they do. I heard Schiff say once that, "The more stupid you act, the more liberals think you're brilliant - an Einstein." He's so right. Have a good laugh watching this one.

    We Have A Phony Recovery That Has Sown The Seeds Of Its Own Destruction Peter Schiff, Euro Pacific Capital Aug. 6, 2012, 9:41 PM The past week provided clear lessons not just in how central bankers have a limited ability to positively influence the economy but also how they are limited in their capacity to deliver the shortsighted policy actions that investors currently crave. The developments should provide new reasons for investors and economy watchers to abandon their faith in central bankers as super heroes capable of saving the economy. The employment report released on Friday confirmed that the U.S....
