Peter Schiff says the market must be left to deal with the mess, and Government intervention will merely delay the inevitable reckoning and lead to a far worse crash.

He spoke to Stephen Long.

PETER SCHIFF: Well I don't think it's gonna rescue us from anything.

I think what we're doing is the equivalent of selling our financial souls to the devil, because it was the government that got us into this mess.

It's Henry Paulson, it's Ben Bernanke and his predecessor Alan Greenspan, they created this mess, not the free market and there's no solution that involves more government. And there's certainly no solution that involves more inflation.

I mean if we think we can solve our problems by creating inflation, we ought to send some of these guys down to Zimbabwe to see how well it's working out for them.

STEPHEN LONG: You're not suggesting that America could end up in a situation like Zimbabwe with totally out of control inflation?

PETER SCHIFF: No, no… Yes I am. I'm not only suggesting that, I'm saying that.


STEPHEN LONG: Why do you think that that's the case?

PETER SCHIFF: Because that's all we've got. You know, if we keep creating money, maybe another couple of trillion dollars to try to buy up all these mortgages that never would have existed if it wasn't for number one; the Federal Reserve keeping interest rates much too low and then the government interfering in the housing market with entities like Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, which insured all these mortgages and which allowed all these crazy mortgage products to come into existence, they never would have existed absent these government guarantees.

interesting , analysts believe that USA is heading the way of Zimbabwe in terms of hyperinflation ....

Zimbabwe has inflation of 1000+ % , if such inflation hits USA, the US economy is guaranteed to collapse

Just a note. Zimbabwe's inflation rate jumped to 2.2 million % lately. However, as of the time of this posting, it is now numerically impossible to calculate it, because there is no more money to inflate.

Yes you are right. Just like the USSR they will break up. I recently posted a prediction made by a Russian professor who predicted the economic crash and the breakup of the US.

Zimbabwe agrees with Peter Schiff:

>> Global Meltdown >> Reserve Bank of Zimbabwe Commends US and UK Authorities for Following Its Lead

What an insult! Peter Shiff doesn't suggest things; when Peter Shiff open his mouth he means it.

But what about the other anal... whatever?


"The demand is coming from either convexity buying needs or real fears of deflation," said Andrew Brenner, senior vice president at MF Global in New York.

Economists have expressed concern recently that rapidly falling prices for certain commodities like crude oil will lead to deflation.

So what are we gonna do; inflate or deflate? Huh?

Maybe we should start with shutting up those incompetent nostradamuses who contradict each other whenever they open their wise hole.
