Schiff is like a bright light, beacon of truth, shining strong in all the confusion. He will be proven right since the truth always prevails. It is only a matter of time.

Christine Haigh starts by saying there is general conscientious about speculators then rambles on and on and on saying nothing the whole time. She couldn't even explain how speculators were driving up prices. She is a time filler without a clue. Then at the end the host tries to say, why aren't people buying assets like bonds etc. Here's a quick answer because they are just pieces of paper like fiat money. Commodities are actually real things people can use and trade if currencies tank.

Yes, and if you cut down on carbon emissions, imagine what that would do to industrial agriculture. Droughts would be the least of our problems.

Price things in gold and silver and things have gotten cheaper over time. Keep stacking your paper (cash is trash) Federal Reserve Notes (as ''Federal'' as Federal Express) and you will end up losing a lot if not eventually all of your purchasing power. Keep stacking real assets and real money (Gold and Silver). Peter Schiff is a modern day Founding Father. America does not deserve such a brilliant and honest man. He should leave the decrepit gangster infested USSA.

I thought this was going good, until I realized Mr Nabili was having NONE of what Peter was saying and soft balled everything to the UN twit. Mr Satchu at least understood the situation more clearly. People are buying commodities such as gold to protect their savings. I actually couldn't stand Mr Nabili by the end of this. Really.. Peter deserves much more respect than you gave him here.

Wow. You cut off Peter? Peter has the answers, guy. He's the one who predicted the housing crash. IN DETAIL. You need to get your head strait.

being right isn't arrogance

She's clueless, calling for regulations and at the same time saying that no one is investing in making food production more efficient when rising prices has exactly that effect. Rising food prices is a signal that will create more investments in the food industry. Regulating the market towards the point of price fixing while there's massive inflation at the same time will only worsen the problem since investors are now looking for return in another industry with fewer regulations.

I agree, but I would try to avoid cutting people off.

nice to see such a douchebag as P.S. be portrayed just as he actually is ... a douchebag who has no argument, just a predilection to interrupt, railroad others, etc.
