Marc Faber : Clinton’s US$1 trillion tax hike would will destroy the whole world
Sonia: Is it like a lose-lose situation, half of the people don't want Trump to come onboard and now you are saying if Hilary comes onboard as well then there will be lots of international tension. Are we looking at a possibility of a big crack in global markets post the elections?
Marc Faber : I don't think it will happen before the election because the Fed sniggers at the thought of a Trump victory. They are supporting Hillary Clinton as incidentally as the entire media establishment is support Hillary Clinton and is anti-Trump. My view [on the market] is that in this environment we have now clear voices at the Fed and other central banks that basically they should be able to implement negative interest rates and that they might do well if they bought equities. So, under this scenario, you ask yourself what is actually the downside risk. In my view under both Trump and Hillary will continue to print money, there is no other way out, the system is basically bankrupt. So, money printing will continue and then the question is what will happen to asset market? In theory, they can continue to go up. As I pointed out, I am not optimistic about the global economy. But if you print enough money -- central banks' balance sheets have increased sixteen times between 1998 and 2015 -- why can't they go up another 10-20 times in the next five years? In that scenario, the Indian market can go up, the Dow Jones could go to 100,000 and so on, anything is possible. We don't know how far the math professors at central banks will go. - in CNBC TV 18
