Video - Peter Schiff: US Economy ‘Screwed Up,’ Stock Market a ‘Bubble’




Epoch Times: Mr. Schiff, what’s your view on the U.S. economy at this moment?

Peter Schiff: I think it’s a disaster. Very few people perceive just how big a disaster it is. Most people think the U.S. economy is recovering, maybe a bit more sluggish than they would like. People talk about a jobless recovery. But the reality is it’s not a recovery at all. We are not recovering from anything. The country is getting sicker.
The U.S. economy is really all screwed up. It’s the result of mainly monetary policy, but fiscal and regulatory policies are part of the problem. I think the major part of the problem is the central bank. The central bank is basically trying to accommodate bad fiscal policy, bad regulatory policy. They are trying to provide a stimulus to the economy to negate the sedative that is being applied by the government. But it’s actually making the problem worse.
