Marc Faber: Krugman and Central Planners Should
Move to North Korea The Bubble
Marc Faber is featured in a new film about the ongoing financial
crisis. Faber is one of many interviews in The Bubble, a
documentary that interviews the experts that predicted the 2008
crash and asks what happens next. Other cast members include Jim
Rogers, Peter Schiff, Ron Paul, Marc Faber, Doug Casey, Jim Grant
and numerous others. The script is written by Dr. Tom Woods and
based off his New York Times best-seller Meltdown.
Renowned bearish investor David Tice is the Executive Producer.
In the film,
Faber says that the global economy is decelerating very rapidly.
He said, In my view we have too much debt in the household
level, the student level and the government level. Faber predicted
deficits over a trillion dollars in America for the next 10 years.
He says this will will hurt economic growth immensely.
bearish on paper money, said Faber. There is a bubble
in government bonds. People will realize that their money will lose
purchasing power and will no longer trust to buy government bonds,
notes or bills. Faber's views on government debt are linked
to inflation. He said, that consumer price increases around the
world are much higher than what the government is reporting. In
the U.S., Faber estimates that consumer price levels are rising
by 5 to 8 percent annually.
interview has some interesting quotes from Faber that might be surprising
to some. He made his distaste of Keynesian economists and central
bankers clear by saying, Krugman thinks the fiscal deficits
are too small. One of the problems of the crisis is that it was
called by government intervention with fiscal and monetary measures.
Now they tell us we didn't intervene enough. Yet, if they really
believe that, they should go and live in North Korea where they
have a communist system.
