Marc Faber Warns of Hyperinflation

Most analysts assume inflation is low because they watch government statistics that track prices across the economy. But Marc Faber is no ordinary analyst.

Over the last several years, he vehemently opposed quantitative easing programs from the Federal Reserve which Wall Street officials welcomed with open arms.
