Transcript : Dr. Faber what are you seeing on your travels have 0:14 you been seeing lately and you travel 0:16 all over the world what's going on out 0:17 there yet 0:18 in general I have to say that basement 0:22 is not in the resection maybe some 0:25 textures are or have been in recession 0:28 but overall there is very little gross 0:33 or no girl if you're traveling in Asia 0:36 and you look at the tourist trade in 0:41 general it is flat to down and the 0:46 income of people in the hospitality 0:49 industry is rather flat to down the 0:54 corporate sector is doing ok but the 0:57 earnings in Asia have been down because 1:00 costs have gone up but revenues have 1:04 kind of disappointed for prizes have 1:07 been on the pressure due to competition 1:10 so the earning seven expanded very much 1:13 in the meantime very significant amount 1:18 of bad take in the system and we have 1:22 very elevated states in the system 1:26 anyway how your fate as a percent of the 1:29 economy then before the last Christ in 1:33 2007 veto or the same for the US Senate 1:38 for europe so in general I think that 1:43 one shouldn't be overly optimistic about 1:46 the economic outlook in the world with 1:49 always out to me to come 1:51 that's a big question for 2017 many 1:54 people have in the United States maybe 1:55 around the world to some degree but what 1:57 is he going to do to make America great 2:00 again because the structural problems 2:02 that we have in place the united states 2:03 are very serious as you know what do you 2:05 see happening with the trump presidency 2:06 but i personally I was in favor of mr. 2:11 from being elected 2:13 it in the sense that I thought that mrs. 2:17 Clinton were simply not the suitable 2:20 candidate and that the Clinton dynasty 2:24 should be out of politics for good but 2:29 quite frankly i think that the trump 2:33 presidency will be characterized by more 2:38 intervention ism in other words 2:41 management of the economy which is 2:45 precisely what ails the global economy 2:48 or certainly the Western democracies 2:52 these continuous interventions into the 2:55 free market and I think air from policy 3:00 team orders from cabinet is going to 3:04 intervene repeatedly into relatively 3:07 small issues such as say your 3:11 corporations such as for General Motors 3:14 it should really be back to you where 3:18 you assemble cars where you build a new 3:22 factory and the police should tell you 3:25 that you have to do it in the u.s. your 3:28 event so one set of problems will be 3:32 replaced by another set of problems and 3:36 in my view is there a relatively harsh 3:41 trade policy that makes the compact 3:44 embarked upon is going to be very 3:47 negative for global growth either some 3:51 of the United States and I no other goal 3:53 watchers around the world mark have been 3:55 looking at the price in the action and 3:56 gold and saying well again we have Trump 3:58 coming in he's going to make America 3:59 great again and all these things are 4:01 going to turn around and you know 4:03 perhaps there's some truth to that but 4:05 when you look at the gold market what do 4:07 you see happening in 2017 because we 4:09 came off the loans in terms of dollars 4:10 from a thousand fifty when you're 4:11 fourteen hundred came back to 11 20 or 4:14 so and here we are wobbling around here 4:15 twelve hundred dollars but just was 4:17 curious on what you thought was going to 4:18 happen in terms of the gold market for 4:20 2017 4:22 well the first question i'd really like 4:23 to i'm very making America great 4:26 Kate I think if you look at the history 4:30 of civilization and the history of 4:34 concrete and empires in particular they 4:39 become powerful and then eventually they 4:41 start to decline a relative to other 4:46 countries and eventually they crumble 4:49 so I don't think that one man alone or 4:52 his policy team can make a comfy crate 4:56 again it has to come from always people 4:59 and I'm sorry to say that the US will 5:03 not manufacture certain goods that they 5:06 import any longer they will be 5:10 manufactured elsewhere at the same way 5:14 so the Arabia will not have semi 5:17 conductor plan and large-scale assembly 5:22 industry that they will produce oil and 5:26 petrochemicals fertilizers and divorce 5:28 but they will import goods from other 5:32 parts of the world and so each country 5:34 has some natural advantages and the US 5:39 will depend on imports from other 5:42 countries now they can shut off all the 5:45 import if they like to but we'll need to 5:49 to consumer prices in the US and two 5:53 standards of living in the US the 5:56 Millennials are not particularly 5:57 interested to work in assembly factory 6:00 and if you then the one to hire people 6:04 for assembly work in factories in 6:07 America you will have to pay a 6:10 relatively high salary much higher than 6:12 saying bhangra based Vietnam China 6:14 Indian divorce and so the good prizes 6:18 will be much higher in the US and the US 6:22 will be excluded from World Trade and 6:26 become essentially close that from 6:29 development outside the US and don't 6:33 forget the u.s. is no longer such a 6:36 large country even terms 6:40 industrial production in terms of 6:42 economy relative the rest of the world 6:45 the way to stay in the 1960s oh I think 6:51 actually that from policies may 6:54 accelerate the relative decline of the 6:58 US the relative to the rest of the world 7:02 secondly concerning gold 7:05 I mean we have a huge bull market in 7:08 gold which investors tend to forget it 7:11 in 1999 and 2011 when the price rose 7:16 from less than three hundred dollars to 7:19 / 19 on the dollars and then we have the 7:22 correction which ended essentially at 7:24 the end of 2015 and last year 7:29 aside from some currencies that have 7:32 been in a steep decline before namely 7:35 the ruble the Russian ruble and the 7:38 Brazilian rail gold was essentially 7:41 based performing currency because it 7:44 went up against the US dollar equally 7:47 what from the managers will not tell you 7:50 in all the service that you see nowadays 7:54 about the best performing sectors of the 7:56 US in 2016 gold shares are never 8:03 mentioned why because the fund managers 8:07 hate gold they hate gold share and so 8:12 this is a sec because they didn't 8:14 already and this sector by and large 8:18 gold shares were up eighty percent last 8:20 year and yet despite being the best 8:25 before being grew gold silver platinum 8:30 are some of the most hated assets that 8:35 you can imagine everybody talks it down 8:39 and the from the managers are 8:42 underweight gold shares and I think the 8:46 sentiment actually today is more 8:49 negative than it was when it was when 8:52 gold was at the flow 8:53 in october november december 2015 it's 8:59 very negative sentiment the weight is 9:02 very negative sentiment about problems 9:05 and very optimistic sentiment about gold 9:10 there's a huge optimism that suddenly 9:13 miraculously mr. Trump will make America 9:17 again the leading economy in the world 9:21 and let America grow at the fast pace 9:24 but unlike mr. rake and miss the Trump 9:27 blue face numerous head wins including 9:31 one which is if the economy begins to 9:35 grow at a faster pace will also have 9:37 higher interest rate and how your 9:39 interest rate mean lower p/e ratios let 9:44 me ask you then mark as we had in 2017 9:46 kick it off your water your major 9:48 predictions for 2017 we always have some 9:50 fun with this we see happening 9:52 well for the full year I don't know but 9:54 because we have volatility in markets 9:56 that mean we've had in 2016 at the worst 10:01 start of the year in about 50 years when 10:05 the market went down sharply into 10:08 favorite 10-cent be low was 18 10 and 10:14 then we have this huge rebound and we 10:17 have the trump rally at the end of the 10:19 year so the vega forecast for holy sir 10:22 mr. difficult but i'd like to say for 10:26 that they say three months i think we'll 10:30 have a rebound in bond price is because 10:34 the economy has actually be the 10:36 weakening cars players have been 10:38 weakening housing has been slowing down 10:42 and the bed level is extremely high and 10:48 short-term interest rates have gone up 10:50 so it's hurting as some sectors of the 10:54 market which are in straight dependent 10:57 and i think that the economy by a larger 11:01 will disappoint in the next three months 11:04 and therefore 11:05 one of the prediction that I have or one 11:08 of the positions i have used to be long 11:11 treasury bonds also if you compare state 11:14 treasury bonds in the US and two 11:17 European bolts so the consensus in the 11:22 world among investors is that the US 11:25 dollar will train them so in theory is 11:30 that consensus East widespread and 11:33 correct then European government bombs 11:37 should have a higher yield than US 11:40 government bonds but say today the 11:44 10-year treasury is that 2.4 five 11:48 percent but the Italian government 11:52 phones are at 1.8 six percent and 11:57 spanish government forms at 1.43 percent 12:00 now I would hold that say the financial 12:04 condition of the u.s. is somewhat better 12:08 than that of Italy and Spain so you can 12:13 see already how the markets are being 12:15 distorted by central bank interventions 12:19 and i would rather as a fund manager on 12:22 us treasuries then they eat Italian or 12:26 Spanish phone and equally the bounds of 12:30 market in the u.s. is extremely and have 12:34 to repeat extremely oversold near-term 12:38 so I think that for the next three 12:41 months you can have a significant 12:44 rebounds in bombed prices in the US 12:47 where by after point out one thing 12:50 people have been talking down high-yield 12:54 bombs for the last two years that high 12:58 yield bonds or junk bonds would collapse 13:00 but since peppery 2016 but junk bond 13:06 markets and the emerging market bonds 13:10 markets have been very strong returns 13:14 have been around twenty percent in 2016 13:18 feet 13:19 out but the Treasury market has been 13:22 weakening so you have a very interesting 13:24 the situation treasuries weekend but 13:29 junk bums rally why because junk bums 13:34 depend more on the market action of 13:37 stocks they are like Doc more than they 13:42 are like Treasury and so we have this 13:44 rally and junk bonds and Treasury market 13:48 has performed poorly in the last six 13:50 months certainly students to write so my 13:53 view would be now to go into something 13:56 relatively safe like Treasuries and 13:59 interestingly enough for the love they 14:03 take nine-month Treasury have correlated 14:07 with precious metals very closely they 14:11 know it from prices went down in the 14:14 last that takes seven month and the gold 14:18 price went down in the last six seven 14:20 months and now I think that also 14:23 precious metal can rebound and my 14:26 favorite precious metal is actually 14:28 practicum what is the biggest danger in 14:31 the financial system as you see it today 14:34 well some people talk to repeatedly 14:38 about the beautiful deleveraging and so 14:41 forth 14:42 I don't see any be labeled fake at all 14:45 in the world i just see larger state as 14:50 a percent of the economy that in 2007 14:54 and worst of all I the government states 15:00 having exploded on the upside whereby 15:04 easily distinguish as the classical 15:09 economy states between productive states 15:12 and unproductive state then government 15:15 states that is used for transfer 15:18 payments in other words food time and 15:22 for all kinds of benefits have to be the 15:26 most unproductive state you can imagine 15:28 so i would say that actually 15:33 the big danger and this is also applies 15:37 at two other financial crisis the big 15:40 danger if that we have paid doing like 15:45 excessive state then when people talk 15:49 about from the baked in America great 15:52 the game and they think in the back of 15:55 the mind of this the reagan became 15:58 president in a he did 1980 was elected 16:02 in November became president in 81 first 16:06 he had a two years bear market until 16:09 August 82 and number two when he got 16:16 elected he only had a tail wings the 16:19 record high incidence rate and depressed 16:23 asset prices makes the Trump he faces a 16:28 huge head winds in terms of inflated 16:32 asset prices that is the key that people 16:36 should consider he is not becoming 16:38 president with the dow jones below 800 16:42 in 82 when the Dow was already at the 16:47 thousand in 1964 he's becoming president 16:51 with a very elevated evaluation of 16:55 equities in the u.s. in fact the highest 16:59 graduation of us equities relative to 17:03 the rest of the world ever since 2011 17:07 the rest of the world including emerging 17:10 markets and europe as perform poorly and 17:13 the US has gone up strongly including 17:16 the dollar so we have this divergence in 17:20 the performance and I believe that will 17:23 be a reversion to the mean either by all 17:26 markets going up and then emerging 17:28 markets and Europe outperforming the US 17:32 or more likely all markets going down 17:36 with the u.s. going down more than 17:39 emerging economy 17:40 let me ask you this mark what do you 17:42 think may surprise 17:44 investors around the world in 2017 17:47 something they just don't see coming 17:48 I mean I would say some people think 17:50 that breaks it was a surprise and some 17:53 people think that the election of Trump 17:56 was a surprise but if you analyze the 17:59 crowds they it wasn't a surprise for 18:02 many people because there is a very 18:06 strong and the establishment and the 18:09 elite sentiment in europe and the 18:13 government sentiment and the corruption 18:17 sentiment and the same happens we strum 18:21 i think a lot of people didn't tell four 18:25 days of the same the service that they 18:28 would vote for Trump because they were 18:31 afraid to speak out but basically a lot 18:35 of people they just thought that Lisa's 18:38 Clinton is unelectable and so exactly 18:43 what the surprise will be AC i don't 18:46 know i think it's a surprise for many 18:48 investors is that the stock market will 18:51 go down and don't forget I March 2017 in 18:58 other words in three months the bull 19:00 market will be eight years old in June 19:05 2070 the economic recovery will be eight 19:10 years old by any standard of this is a 19:15 full market and the economic recovery 19:17 that has been longer than most 19:23 bull markets and economic recoveries in 19:25 the u.s. in the 20th century so i would 19:30 say a bear market is a over duel and the 19:35 recession is over to you now the one 19:39 thing that we need to consider which is 19:41 important for say precious metals 19:43 investors is the following 19:45 let's say the Fed realize is that a 19:52 deficits of the u.s. go up and that 19:57 interest rate increase and that the 20:01 economy throws down 20:03 do you really think that they will 20:05 increase the Fed fund rate feet x in 20:08 2017 never what they'll aim at instead 20:15 to essentially bring interest rates down 20:17 especially by then the dollar II still 20:20 strong and so they'll launch is probably 20:25 in 2017 qe4 I think that would be a 20:30 surprise for many people not for me but 20:32 I think for many people it would be a 20:34 surprise so I was surprised i would say 20:37 a stock market that goes down the 20:41 professional and three bom the market 20:45 rally and precious make those going up 20:47 markets have two final questions for you 20:50 here but I wanted to start with what's 20:51 unfolded in India the chaos there it has 20:54 to do with this global central bank war 20:56 on cash 20:57 it's obviously headed to India and that 20:59 crackdown is pretty severe there it's 21:01 caused enormous turmoil i don't have to 21:03 tell you and then they're trying to 21:04 crack down the gold market as well I can 21:06 you talk about what's happening in India 21:08 because it seems insane 21:10 well first of all I think the 21:11 implementation of was poor number two 21:15 even if you disregard the poor 21:18 implementation the result has been very 21:22 disappointing is basically what they 21:25 didn't you stop exactly a war on cash it 21:29 was a war on the old bank notes because 21:33 they thought that people had huge stash 21:37 of cash that were ill acquired and to 21:44 some extent that they have been the case 21:45 but basically the old banknote could be 21:50 extended at are still being exchanged 21:53 for new banknotes in fact with a larger 21:58 denominations than the old bank note but 22:02 the bank's basically are in charge of 22:05 asking the person that wants to change 22:08 the banknote we're there 22:11 spare money come from and they look take 22:13 the kind of fact the receipt and divorce 22:17 but eighty-six percent of the money 22:20 first few patients had already been 22:23 converted and as you can imagine they 22:27 even I have a lot of cash from that has 22:31 been illegally acquired and I know in my 22:35 little village hundred people that have 22:37 no cash and for sure in India among the 22:41 1.2 billion people there's lots of 22:43 people that have no cash that you can 22:46 just buy a few people you keep the my 22:49 commission and you ask them to go and 22:51 change the money because there was a 22:53 limit how much where they are no 22:56 questions are in fact instead of 23:00 fighting corruption that this move in my 23:05 view have actually encourage corruption 23:08 and so in general i think is the 23:13 complete sailor 23:14 it's a huge inconvenience for many 23:17 people and a temporary gdp growth will 23:23 slow down considerably and many people 23:26 have been hurt very badly by in the long 23:30 run I don't think you will make much of 23:31 a difference now the war on gold hasn't 23:35 been implemented yet and I think mother 23:40 he also has to be re-elected a war on 23:44 gold would really be a very very 23:47 unpopular move and I'm brigade it would 23:52 probably trigger more corruption that 23:56 life a the tax official comes to my 23:59 office and say you have gold and then 24:03 they checked would have gold in my 24:05 office or in my almonds divorce when I 24:07 tell him straightaway yes have gold I'll 24:10 give you ten percent and you walk out of 24:12 the door and going in tax collector 24:16 still do that in closing market just 24:18 wanted to ask you because you do meet 24:20 with some of the wealthiest people on 24:21 the planet for private consultation what 24:23 are they doing with their 24:24 money and what are they concerned about 24:25 these days is a government staff to me 24:27 what are you hearing out their wealthy 24:30 people are always worried about the 24:32 party that the universe for but in 24:36 general I have to say very wealthy 24:40 people have their to some extend missed 24:45 the bull market in equities around the 24:48 world and they own a lot of cash they 24:52 also don't use some too but most do not 24:56 own suspicions precious metal they own a 25:00 lot of real estate and wealthy people 25:03 have shares in their own businesses 25:06 so desu coburg he owns the facebook 25:11 games of course but he in general people 25:16 have been very cautious and I know 25:19 people they went into the trump rally 25:21 with a very negative view about equities 25:26 is very concerned and so they didn't own 25:30 any shares as you know my favorite 25:33 that's that location is to have 25:35 something government bonds some money in 25:38 equities somebody and precious metals 25:41 and some money in real estate 25:44 so the bonds that I only know mostly 25:47 high-yield bombs they have an equity 25:49 character as i explained and real estate 25:52 these are assets so I'm quite exposed to 25:55 acid market but a lot of wealthy people 25:57 they were underweight asset and 26:02 overweight cash and some have done okay 26:06 with cash because it was all the US 26:08 dollars but some didn't do well because 26:11 it was in malaysian ringgit the hook 30 26:14 Slayer up for euros or British Pound an 26:17 event so the it's difficult to tell 26:20 there's not the universal theme but I 26:23 think in general wealthy people have 26:27 been surprised by the strength of the US 26:30 market and they've all 26:32 little being surprised by the very 26:35 strong rebound we had in some emerging 26:39 markets and by the way as that as the 26:41 complex that the sector emerging markets 26:43 outperformed the u.s. love beer so 26:46 Brazil in dollar terms wassup sixty-six 26:49 percent Russia 55-percent kazakhstan 26:54 also 56% thailand nineteen percent and 26:58 tours in addition to that at last year 27:04 was to some extend already a comeback of 27:08 active managers compared to index funds 27:12 because I know a lot of active managers 27:15 they weigh outperformed the EDC 27:18 basically limited they were in oil 27:21 stocks or oil servicing companies or in 27:25 gold shares that way outperformed the 27:28 index in the US or in Thailand they were 27:31 in leasing companies in financial stocks 27:34 that way outperformed the index so i 27:37 think that this trend to disregard the 27:42 in DC but focus more on individual 27:45 sectors is going to be the theme of 2017 27:49 and as I said my favorite sectors are 27:52 basically precious metals agricultural 27:57 commodities and plantation companies and 28:00 fertilizer stock and to some expend 28:03 energy related company Marcus said there 28:06 was a final question but you hit on 28:07 something I was talking to James talked 28:09 about earlier today and it was the 28:10 mining shares in the fact that you 28:12 brought this up earlier in the interview 28:13 the fact that they were the number one 28:14 performer last year in the money 28:17 managers and people were just not in 28:19 them and even today when you look at the 28:21 sector it's so hated the reason bringing 28:23 this up as i know you've seen this in 28:24 your career where bull market kicks off 28:26 its been a protracted bear market and 28:28 nobody wants to own it and nobody wants 28:31 to get near it and it just remains hated 28:32 and her own and when you've seen that 28:35 things just keep kind of melting up and 28:37 melting up we've had this setback but is 28:39 2017 gonna be another monster year for 28:42 the mining shares well you know if you 28:44 look at American bury your barrack 28:47 newmont mining and freeport basically 28:52 from the lows to the recent eyes love to 28:55 try August they went up in some cases 28:59 four times I don't think they'll go up 29:02 four times this year but i think they 29:05 can easily go up fifty percent hundred 29:09 percent no problem and then you have 29:13 smaller mining companies they can easily 29:17 double trouble from the present level 29:20 because they're even stock drops from 29:22 the hundred 210 and it goes up to stay 29:27 18 it still down 29:29 eighty percent from the feet that's the 29:32 situation of essentially the mining 29:34 industry they've come off the lows but i 29:38 think it's probably the first leg in a 29:41 new bull market because I'm really a 29:45 believer that with all the fiscal 29:48 spending expansion in the world the 29:52 central banks will have to continue 29:54 buying government state and eventually 29:58 this monetary inflation will be very 30:02 favorable for precious metal Mark barber 30:05 editor and publisher of
