Here is a terrifying interview with Marc Faber, editor of the Gloom Doom & Boom Report. I find it unsettling how calm and polite he is as he lays out the case for an inevitable collapse of the US dollar hegemony and the destruction of our economic system.
And in case you think he is some sort of doomsayer who just now happens to be correct, keep in mind that throughout his lengthy career, he has made some unbelievable calls - both long and short. So he clearly is not a perma-bear of the Howard Ruff variety. The last time Ruff was on CNBC hoarsely growling his ever pessimistic prognosis, I wondered if this was a contrarian signal from the trading gods. With hindsight’s approval we know that it most certainly was.
In contrast, Marc Faber was bullish at almost the exact bottom of the market earlier this year. So while he is a long term bear, he is the rare breed that is actually able to bob and weave, catching shorter term rallies. Listen to the full interview (in three parts) to find out his case for the utter collapse of capitalism as we know it:
