Peter Schiff : US Treasury Bonds are Junk

Peter Schiff : US Treasury Bonds are Junk , The greenback and the U.S. bond market are headed for a collapse as the U.S. Federal Reserve loses the ability to service the nation’s debt with “artificially low” interest rates, Peter Schiff, CEO of Euro Pacific Capital told CNBC Asia’s “Squawk Box.” : “As far as I am concerned, U.S. Treasurys are junk bonds,” Schiff said “And the only reason that the U.S. government can pay the interest on the debt, and I say ‘pay’ in quotes because we never pay our bills. We borrow the money so we pretend to pay, but the only reason we can do it is because the Fed has got interest rates so artificially low.”
