Is the Fed Losing Control of the Narrative? – Ep. 339

Fed Surprised No One

Tariffs Are Not Good for Workers


The stock market had one of its best days of the year; I think it was the second best day.  The Dow was up 440 points – just under 1.8%.  The NASDAQ was up 132 points; about the exact same percentage as the Dow.  The NASDAQ is now at an all-time record high! […]

You Convinced Me of Free Market Capitalism

Message Body:
Dear Mr. Schiff,

I live in Hamilton, New Zealand. I just watched your interview with Nicholas Merten of Data Dash.

In mid-2012, I watched your Wall Street video. I came from a left-leaning upbringing but after watching that video, I was immediately convinced that you were correct. I bought your books The Real Crash and How […]

All Government Economists Should Be Fired – Ep. 335

Continued Stock Market Volatility

The U.S. stock market continues to be extremely volatile, and as I have said many times on this podcast, I think this volatility following a long-term record lack of volatility is a good sign that the uptrend has changed.  So there’s a good chance that the bull market is now a bear […]

Trade, Comparative Advantage and Protectionism

Second Consecutive 300-Point Drop in the Dow

The Dow Jones was down 380 points today, in fact this is the second consecutive 300-point drop we’ve had in the Dow. The Dow is now down about 4% for the month of February which just ended today.  This also means the Dow’s record-breaking monthly winning streak has also […]

So Much Debt, so Little Concern – Ep. 332

Remembering Irwin Schiff

Today would have been my father, Irwin Schiff’s 90th birthday. If you’re not familiar with my father’s story, and I’m sure most of the people who listen to this podcast are familiar with my father but if you’re not go to and pick up a copy of “The Federal Mafia,” which was […]
