There is going to be Currency Crisis; a Sovereign Debt Crisis that will dwarf what was going on in Europe So you’re saying the Fed’s not going to wind down the QE or the zero-interest-rate policy, and that the end’s not in sight? 

Peter Schiff: They’re not going to wind it down. The market is going to wind it down for them. The Fed is not going to voluntarily taper. It’s going to keep on expanding the balance sheet at an ever-increasing pace until the market puts an end to this party. So, eventually the bottom will drop out of the bond market and out of the dollar, there’s going to be currency crisis; a sovereign debt crisis that will dwarf what was going on in Europe.
And then, when it’s a real catastrophe, the Fed will be forced to tighten. And it’s going to be much more violent then they’re anticipating; it’s not going to be a gradual tapping on the brake. They’re going to have to slam on the brake and push the pedal through the floor. - in IndexUniverse
