Peter Schiff : We conned the World , they are holding a bunch of worthless IOUs

Epoch Times: That can’t go on forever right?

Mr. Schiff: When the world figures out that we conned them and they are holding a bunch of worthless IOUs, they are going to stop exporting. It doesn’t mean that they are going to stop producing goods. It just means that their own citizens will consume them. Which will be better for them, but that’s when the party ends in the U.S. Because without the world to supply us with the goods that we don’t produce, there is almost nothing to buy.
If there is almost nothing to buy, it doesn’t matter how much money consumers will spend. There is nothing there, it’s just inflation. All our policies are about putting money in the pockets of consumers. But money doesn’t do you any good if there is almost nothing to buy. And where is this stuff coming from? It’s coming from the productive efforts of people outside of America. - in
