As a Bond Investor the Currency value is paramount

Peter Schiff : As an investor, the most important thing for me is the strength of the currency where my yields are coming from. We have Canadian bonds in my bond fund. If I'm a bond investor, it's the only thing that matters really. I'm not worried about Canada defaulting. But I would be worried about Canada inflating. When you're a bond investor, you want purchasing power. … I have to make sure the currency that I own [for clients]is going to deliver that purchasing power in the future. So the currency value is paramount. - in a recent interview with the Canadian GlobeandMail
