Peter Schiff on The Atlantic's Economic Panel

Peter Schiff on point regarding the problems the US faces and the leader's unwillingness to consult with those who have correctly predicted our problems. He even calls government unions corrupt and likens them to terrorist organizations. Classic.

Thanks blacklab for posting.

The Schiffer is killin it!

I'm glad he's back making the rounds. He's been oddly silent from headline events and network appearances these past couple years.

Peter is a master at explanations

He knows how to dumb it down and doesn't sugar coat it. He doesn't hold back and knows just how to debate and answer the question without stumbling. If I could get to AL I'd study at the Mises U, but for now Peter is one of my economic idols.

I admire Peter Schiff as much as I admire Ron Paul

He might not have as long of a track record as Ron Paul, but he is more articulate than anyone I have ever seen. He also has a very quick mind. Big Fan.

Utter Mental Destruction

If Schiff used honey in his delivery he would catch a lot more flies.

I always find it hilarious that

a bunch of Keynesian statists, whom if they aren't part of the corporatist clique, tend to be pure academics and deluded bloggers, deem themselves qualified to lecture others on economics or even more preposterous, how to make 'money' to those like Schiff, who actually makes REAL money & FRN's, legitimately, for himself and his clients.

That's like a plumber telling a neurosurgeon how to conduct a brain-surgery. Or vice versa, a neurosurgeon designing a copper re-piping for a 20 story building.

Now, that is not to say either one can't cross train to become competent, as there are a plenty of Harvard and MIT med school grads who in fact have left medicine and found more joy in plumbing, so people can't simply be judged solely based on their profession or educational pedigree alone.

That said, econ is a pure numbers game, with the added risk of the ever 'unknowable:' the human variable. As such, when all one does is to write for the liberal rag the Atlantic, with absolutely no financial prowess at any level, be it in former career, or run a biz before, to speak authoritatively of, you may want to check yourself.

Do these idiots know that NO high flying financier gives a F' what a bunch of self-aggrandizing morons like Roubini and Krugman have to say, as people with 9 zeros in their bank accounts are NOT gonna listen to a bunch of econ light weights who can barely garner 6 zeroes, for financial advice?

Just what is wrong with this world?

Heck, that goes the same for all the financial TV shows.

Frankly, since Schiff is rather blunt, I've always wondered why he doesn't simply tell-off the really obnoxious academics and blogger turds with: "so, Krugman, how much money did you KEEP, not make, KEEP, last month?"

That should end all this nonsense in a heartbeat. But, to his credit, Peters is rather more decorous than people give him credit for. Call me brash, but if I in Schiff's position and were ever on TV, and I had to listen to these wannabes, I couldn't resist.D

Such a great clip. I've watched it a few times this past week after discovering it. Schiff rules!

Peter Schiff is just brilliant. As much as I admire Ron Paul, Peter really knows how to speak to communicate more effectively.
