Marc Faber : "I'm prepared to make a bet." said Faber. "You keep your US Dollars and I'll keep my gold. We'll see which one goes to zero first."
Faber admitted to being too gloomy, joking that "Sometimes I'm so
concerned about the world I want to jump out of the window."
"in the worst case scenario, in the systemic failure that I expect,
[gold] would still have some value," the Swiss author and money manager
Shiller responded "I'm inclined to think gold prices
after this crisis might return to a lower level. Given the low yields of
the alternatives [ie, bonds], the valuation of the stock market doesn't
look so bad."
