If the Fed tapers in the fall, by winter they are going to be un-tapering

Peter Schiff  : Soon, we’re going to find out if the Fed’s going to taper in the fall. If they don’t taper—which I think is even more likely—well then, the market is really going to rise, because the market will have discounted a tightening that’s not going to happen. And if the Fed tapers in the fall, probably by winter they’re going to be un-tapering. They’re going to have to reverse it, because of the carnage in the bond market and the stock market, because they’re going to be pulling the rug right out from under the recovery they think they’ve created.
So they’re going to have to come right back to the markets with more heroin to give the drug addicts what they want. And that’s going to expose the phony nature of the recovery that they’ve been bragging about.
