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.

The Fed’s easy money policies were reactions to the stock market crash, a crisis management technique to stop asset prices from collapsing. Low interest rates were a central feature of the plan.

Making it easier to borrow money was supposed to boost spending, but Faber argues it caused near-irreparable damage. He was typically contrarian when asked whether the Fed missed its chance to raise interest rates.

“They should have raised the rates, in my view, in 2011 already, or never lowered them to such a low level,” said Faber. “Now the problem is the global economy is slowing down […] it would be very difficult to raise interest rates at the present time.”  -- read more @
