Marc Faber: We Have Reached Some Kind of Tipping Point
The markets have moved sideward for essentially the last 12 months and this year, when the crash really happened, we were 2% lower on the S&P year-to-date…we were down 13% for the transportation index, so the internal of the market has been weak,” Faber told FOX Business yesterday.
“An economy like China is not like a car where you just drive around the corner,” he said. “The Chinese economy cannot be stimulated meaningfully for the time being—it will take time."
“You look at announcements of Hewlett-Packard, United Technologies, car manufacturers… they have a large exposure to China, and when the Chinese economy slows down, what really drove the growth, namely capital spending in China, and consumption in China slows down, so in July, car sales in China were down 7% year-over-year,” he said.
