Jim StrehlGreenspan knows he's responsible for the housing bubble. You can tell in the interview his answers didn't really make sense. Paul Krugman was affiliated because he influenced him to cut rates. I was surprised he didn't mention him in the interview lol1 day ago   ·  1

Julian PetkovI disagree with Peter Schiff that the Fed needs to be independent. It needs to be Nationalised. When the Fed is Nationalised, it will no longer be a for profit enterprise and its retail usurers like Morgan and Goldman will be left on their own. At the moment, the US is an Apartheid Economy because of the Fed. Anyone who is in some way aligned with the Fed shareholders gets preferential treatment while everybody else has to struggle to run a business in a fading economy.16 hours ago

Carlos Alfaro AlpizarPeter Schiff what is your word on deflation in the US, media is saying this deflation is actually a good one but same thing happening in Europe or Japan is harmful. Would you be analysing this current scenario and its implications such as QE4.18 hours ago
Ilona Magdalena MuszyńskaSorry, I must write it even if I prefer to comment only economical topics. After every Peter Schiff interview in RT is a hot discussion about Russia, RT and free media. Two days ago I wrote my comment how dangerous is telling the truth about Russian economy and Putin's action in Russia. I always saw the US and American people as a source of freedom for word and human rights. Now when I hear how many of you admire Putin and his policy I am really surprised. Many of you declare that Putin is better leader than Obama and RT is better than CNN/Fox etc. Yesterday next person - Boris Nemtsov, lost his life because he talked the truth about Russian economy nad Putin's policy. Maybe you should read more about all Putin victims. The difference between Russia and your country is huge. Talking the truth Peter Schiff is still alive and safe, talking the truth Boris Nemtsov is dead. Do you really think is this only Polish fobia about Putin ? It should be also your own fobia if you don't want to see the world as " a ground zero zone".14 hours ago
Ricky CameronThe Greenspan essay from 67 on gold standard woke me up from the linear thinking I did toward economics. The staggering contradiction of his accepting the job at the FED, and subsequent actions mirror that which he critiqued within his essay. Men of integrity are a shrinking asset in a culture that inflates the reputation of compromising hypocrites. Thank you for calling him out.16 hours ago

Cheri LeasMaybe during Yellen's next statement, the country will find out that the Fed feels that we have possibly progressed to the point that the liklihood exists that the Fed may continue thinking about the probability of considering the potentiality of perhaps raising interest rates when it seems plausible to do so. Progress is sweet!3 days ago   ·  8

Milan MamusichIn Europe we have seen the type of crisis Madame Chairman Yellen is so busy working on with the rest of her cronies at the Board of Governors at the FED. My parents generation still vividly remember the greatest ever recorded "Pengő" hyperinfaltion (surapassing that of the Weimar Republic in Germany and the more recent Zimbabwe deabcle) that happened in Hungary after WW II. When the Soviets occupied Hungary they engaged in what today would be called QE infinte to bring the country to its knees. They succceded. Peter Schiff is absolutely right, that no country has ever escaped unpunished moneyprinting on the scale the US is engaged in right now, I believe that the coming US hyperinflation heralded by Peter Schiff will surpass that of Hungary which happened in 1946. days ago   ·  2

Yaakov SchatzIsrael is along the coast of the Mediterranean and most of it is not a desert. The prices of water are government controlled and were raised from about a dollar per 1000 litters to about 2.5$. This was done in order to allow for wide desalinating. Now the prices were reduced by 10%, which of course is close to meaningless (maybe 5$ a month for an average household).2 days ago   ·  1
