Bartiromo Vs Schiff: The (Soft) Money-Honey Against The Golden Boy

Tyler Durden's picture


Perfectly summarizing the cognitive dissonance of the mainstream media (and their drone-like viewers), this duel of the Soft-Money-Honey Maria B and Hard-Money Golden Boy Peter Schiff was a tragic farce. Maria comes out swinging, "whether this is a manufactured market or not, you've got no alternative but stocks - where's my yield?" Schiff counters, "there are alternatives" - summarily scoffed at (a-la his-housing appearances in 2006/7) by Maria



- "we have a completely phoney economy driven 100% by cheap money; the minute you take it away, the whole thing implodes." And while the 'fight' moves on, we are left thinking they are in two different rings since whatever point is made by Schiff is summarily ignored for the status quo.

"QE will be here until we have a USD crisis and the Fed can't get away with it anymore," Schiff reminds, adding, "There is no exit strategy... the Fed is bluffing; exit is impossible."

The glancing blows continue deep into the late rounds. "The reality is we are living in a bubble; and all bubbles burst," (reminding us of Sam Zell's comments to the very same CNBC anchor a few weeks back), "it's unfortunate we didn't learn that lesson in 2008 but we're about to learn a much bigger lesson." Disingenuous laughter follows at Schiff's suggestion at holding Gold with Maria's anchoring bias loud-and-proud - "I'm looking for alternatives to stocks, and I can't find any."


Schiff notes, "the next crisis will be the USD," to which Maria incomprehensibly asks "what currency am I going to own if not the USD?" And this is where the fireworks begin as Schiff dares to suggest "you could just have real money Maria" (just as Marc Faber warned her "you don't own gold, you are in great danger" a few months back).


Her response, perfection in its anchoring bias (forgetting the double collapse in stock prices in the last 13 years), "gold? gold! what if I get caught in the largest sell-off in history like it did 3 weeks ago?"

Schiff, almost speechless at the utter inability of the money-honey to see beyond stocks reminds her of the performance difference over the last five years (to which she smugly smiles at his apparent foolishness) and asks why CNBC hasn't covered the $120 surge in gold's price in the last 3 weeks.

"Gold versus dividend-paying securities..." she repeats spell-like, weighing the simple decision (in her mind) since, we are sure, she "is being paid to wait," or is just totally and completely incapable of comprehending that stocks can fall in price and the 'real' price of said securities is being destroyed. "It's not gold vs stocks; it's gold vs the dollar," Schiff educates.


Eight minutes of sheer comedic perfection assured to go down in the annals of 'irreconcilable differences' for ever...

You do realize CNBC's viewership numbers are incredibly abysmal, right? No one is watching anymore. Their viewership is shrinking by the quarter. But the Fed and the banksters on Wal St. still need paid shills to do as they're told.

Marc Faber is always happy because he lives in Asia, surrounded by the most beautiful women in the world - and that want him because he's an old white guy (money matters somewhat but is not that big of a deal). I was lucky to experience it for 10 years.

Yes, I'm waiting for the down arrows from the stupid, pathetic fucks that can't do anything about it and are stuck here in the States.

If Schiff's message is able to reach just a handful of people, then it is worth it. He could be saving lives. If he awakens a sheeple to dollar debasement and that person goes out and buys gold, he just saved that person when the crash hits. Plus it's like free advertising for his company when he goes on the show and it says the name of the company below his picture.

He's not always right though, and has some ego to do some of the things he does.

Remember how he tried to get more donations to pay his debt after his failed Republican primary for CT's senate seat? He has no shame sometimes.

He also said he no longer believe the u.s. will see hyperinflation soon which he hammered for so long. So, I take him with a grain of salt. He may be right about the Fed, but their criminality knows no bounds.

You think that's the reason for the financial crisis??

I think the reason is because the normal risk/reward equation was thrown in the garbage and everyone was guaranteed not to lose so they took inordinate risks with no possibility of loss. And judging by history, I am right.

The losers didn't lose, they were bailed out!

Who wiped out the risk/reward equation? GOVERNMENT! YOU DUMBFUCK. They made a Churchill Downs where betting on the longshot meant you would either win big or get your money back. Who the hell wouldn't bet at that track. You're blaming the bettors. I'm blaming the track.

No shit. $350,000 here in flyover country would be tough enough with a family of five. I have paid for my 6th year oc private college tuition/housing in Chicago, and my 10th straight year of private HS tuition. Can't imagine how to do it in NYC. My bro has lived there for 35yrs, made big money but doesn't really have much saved beside equity in the house (is that really savings?). His tax bracket is over 50%, his property taxes are over $30k/yr. Shit that costs me 10 grand to do such as put in a new furnace and AC cost him over $30k because of the unions and government bullshit. 

How is it possible to live where he does, raise his kids, not make them debt Peons to the government on less than what he makes?

I think that's the real definition of inflation. The incremental government debt should be added to the cost of living to find the inflation rate each year. They're hiding it in plain view.

Schiff is right. He can't be wrong. The Fed cannot get out of bying, cannot sell the assets it has bought, cannot allow rates to rise ebcause then the sheet will be pulled back and we will see the actual carnage and be horrified. The problem, as Schiff states is that it can't go on forever, but it can go on for a long time.

The problem for investors, citizens and anyone trying to accumulate any wealth is that timing of the collapse in the dollar is unknowable. When it happens, it happens and it will be fast. May be tomorrow and it may be in 20 yrs. I think sooner than the latter but who knows. What I do know is that it will happen and if you are not prepared you will not have time to prepare.

"Keynesian economic thought is declared the enemy on this site."

I would venture that  damn few people that beat the drum of money printing have ever read Keynes; nor those who criticize Keynes.

In Monetary policy Keynes was a sound money disicple. In Fiscal policy Keynes espoused government spending to counter falling private sector demand, only as a temporary measure, and that surpluses from a renewed economy would pay off government debt.

Today the drunkards at the punch bowl- Krugman, Bernanke and their ilk, believe financialization is the real economy. Keynes would bitch-slap both of them.

Who is always right? There is no investing messiah. Fat bloated warren in his bathtub calling into the whitehouse is as close as it comes.

Shiff has said he hopes when the dollar is in collapse the US finally does the right thing and barely avoids hyperinflation...but that there is a good chance they don't and we get it.

link to me where he clearly states the US will avoid it.

I, as you have, heard him waver on hyperinflation. He did not clearly back off anything. he has always maintained a currency crisis is coming along with massive inflation. As for what happens then, he has stated either the US bails on QE at the last minute and goes austerity and we get a collapse that makes 08 look like a picnic or we don't and we get hyperinflation.

I don't know why people get so hung up on him wavering a bit on whether we just get massive awful inflation or hyperinflation. If anything it's just his way of admitting that once the shit starts flying even he does not know where it ends. That's how I take it anyway.

(I have a link of buffet in his want it?)

Austerity crash or hperinflationary explosion may be uncertain, but both will bing tremendous instability and a social reckoning.
In either case it will be hard to avoid the fallout, but gold makes sense as insurance against economic dislocation.

Sun, 05/05/2013 - 00:55 | 3531341 FreeMktFisherMN
FreeMktFisherMN's picture

exactly. And the price crash that could come will probably be very brief, maybe an HFT nanosecond, as CBs around the globe figure to keep on their Keynesian death path and respond by turning their printers into overdrive, leading to hyperinflation. Hyperinflation is when people flat out quit dealing with the fiat currency as it doesn't retain any purchasing power. It's already happening now gradually as can be seen with buy on dips mentality in PMs.  Hyperinflation as I would define it is when there is total loss of confidence in currency much more universally, + wheelbarrows, etc.


Thus, as someone said on ZH a long time ago, if you think you can be first in line to buy gold when that flash crash of equities, commodities, etc. happens, then that's your call. And even that scenario happening is dubious in my mind, because I don't see all capital fleeing to the 'safety' of the USD and treasuries in the big crash. Gold would catch a bid anyway, and the money ALREADY printed is insane.When that debt ceiling crisis came about late summer '11 and the stocks sold off 500 on the DJIA, gold was up $50.

Gold is money, and insurance.

Kito, I think you're missing the forest for the trees.  Should the US actually engage in austerity (which it hasn't), the blow would be so crushing as to pretty much guarantee subsequent hyperinflation.  The best case scenario is a managed decline of the USD, and the rails are pretty rapidly falling off that one.

I know I'm late to this party (I do have another life) but few people knew the extent of the uncollectable debt in the hands of the big New York banks,  so a pile of Ben's new money/credit creation has gone to shore up the past. Ergo, inflation and especially out of control general inflation has had to wait while Bernanke absorbed the undisclosed losses/bad paper of the untouchable banks.

And when someone sells you a poorer product (while it looks the same) at the same price as before, is this measured as inflation ?  When is a widget not a widget ?

I was just explaining this to friends & family at my 40th B-day party last night! I bought what I thought was the best quality appliances 2 years ago, and they're all crap, CHEAP products! I'm old enough to remember the original microwaves grandmothers used well into the 80's, and my father-in-law's "bait refrigerator" still keeps worms cold after 50 years! So there is certainly a drop in quality that is most definately a form of inflation. Just as inflation is a tax on one's spending power, so too is poorer quality at equal prices an inflationary tax on one's spending power. If people have to replace furnaces, A/C units, appliances... early than they have grown accustomed to, then there goes their ability to invest and save. People have no clue how badly we're being robbed.

No way. A bond collapse coming first assumes that the bond vigilante still exists. It doesn't. The bond market is owned by the central banks... Period... and they will be buyers to the bitter end. The only thing that will ever cause a collapse in the bond market is a run on the currency a.k.a. when the market wakes up and realizes the "money" the CBs are printing to buy the bonds isn't worth the paper it is written on.

A is A, I just had an awesome insight thanks to you.
Debating about which will come first is pointless. They will occur at the same time, because every investor that uses their brain will (eventually) ask him/her self "Why should I buy USTs if they're going to be paid back with highly inflated USDs?"

USTs and USDs are tied together, like yin and yang now. If one collaspes, so does the other in real time. (excluding a lag of about a few hours.) - Same goes for any other money-addict CB with corresponding currency.

I think you are right.  But I think it will be that they will stuff the PM price downward, print a whole lot of money instantaneously, buy up all of GLD and PHYS, go back up the trucks and carry away real money, and then go long gold.  This is how they will ground the value of the paper money, by backing it with a %age of real money (gold).

His track record is "own physical gold and silver".

He also is a believer in foreign stocks, which have gotten battered around over the years.

He has said that interest rates will explode higher one day but he clearly stated not to short treasuries, but instead to play that through precious metals.

He advocates mining stocks, some of which are now gigantic thorns in my ass...

Throw it all together and I just conclude that his analysis is correct and he will just stand in the end zone while all the noise goes on around him until everyone realizes the game is over.

Unlike Bass I believe he is actually looking out for the middle class. Bass's advice is own oil wells and multi family rentals etc....

If these sellers cared about the public and making gold a real currency, then they could do a mathematical calculation of retrievable gold in the ground, plus that circulating, tie that amount to the 30 note, write up a bill and pass it around governmental positions of power, and make gold legal tenure. For the public to agree and for the politicians to allow it, the case has to be made in a positive fashion. Selling fear never succeeds. It's the reason anti-war, anti-drugs, anti-anything don't work, but freedom marches against segregation and the like, do.

You're gonna get screwed man. The bond collapse will be the "Black Swan" event that will crash the entire system.
According to Max Keiser and John Willams, bonds will go boom any moment now.

... or they may be early. Still, it doesn't matter, as it is inevitable. Who knows how long TPTB can extend and pretend?

Won't happen. They'll refinance all the existing bonds into the new FRN bonds they are planning to issue next year to keep the government from defaulting and if that don't work they will pull out the guns as a matter of survival. They do that they can stop QE which may destroy the economy and push it into a depression and force the government to cut down spending but it will keep the debt from exploding since they can fix the interest rates on the FRN bonds. Treasury bonds will be THE last safe paper haven backed by the US Government since once that goes so do they. You may not be able to get anything more back than principal on them when they come due but that is as safe as it gets in the paper markets as long as the government is standing.

I like your analysis, but New Issuance I think is more important than already existing bonds.
When everyone but the fed loses confidence in USTs, then the US Government will be monetizing the deficit by 100%, as the fed would be the only buyer of new issuance. Do you think banks will be able to hoard mountains upon mountains of cash from light-speed QE and be able to keep it out of the economy? I think not! - When it happens, the US will be buried in paper, and become Wiemar. (the entire globe will feel it with massive paper increases also.) 

But try to prove me wrong man. I'm always open to those who may be more enlightened.

Over $1.2 quadrillion in gross derivatives exposure (90%+ owned by TBTF banks). Plenty of room to spend mountains of cash outside of the "real" economy. Coincidence that Blythe Masters came up with the idea for derivatives? Unfortunately, I think there is room to continue the charade due to the circle-jerk of US Gov, Fed, and JPM...

Pedant that I am, let me correct a few things.  Total gross notional of derivatives is below a quadrillion (if that makes anyone feel better).  Blythe Masters did not come up with the idea of derivatives, some form of which have been around since Babylon.  She is credited with coming up with the idea of Credit Default Swaps, which is simply a derivative that acts like a private option on a bond issuing entity, albeit carrying both credit and counterparty risk.  At present, the gross notional value of all CDSs is about $13 trillion, and net notional is $955 million.

Thus, if it's any consolation in a world with $65 trillion GDP and assets with a supposed value of $225 trillion, we will be carpet bombed to death rather than get Tsar Bomba'd, at least by CDSs.

Thanks for the info.  I believe the first estimate of gross notional derivatives exposure (by the IMF?) was $1.2 quadrillion and everyone shit their pants. They subsequently changed how they came up with the estimate and released the relatively small $700 trillion estimate. If you have a source for the real number, I'd be very interested in that information...

I am so far removed from any macro numbers, so tell me, what is the matching GNI numbers for our $65 trillion GDP ? And in compiling GDP, what is the total Government proportion ?

In calculating Assets of $225 trillion, does this include IOU's and bank assets- ie, someone else's debt ?  In summary, what are real tangible assets and what are paper assets ?

The question is this, if they stop QE does all the money bottled up in the stock market all of a sudden flood into the economy or just causing an explosive case of inflation first or just evaporates (since it is basically 1s and 0s and really rehypothicated and deflation hits with no inflation first or not. I'm not sure the answer of that but deflation I am pretty sure will be end result. If they keep up QE deflation is going to happen, it is going to happen anyways when the bubbles all burst. They can't create inflation by bubbles if people don't have money. Take housing for example you build all the new houses, price them as high as you want, if people can't buy you have to bring down the price or give out mortgages to high risk individuals and families to keep up prices, it can't be sustained and will crash like every other bubble. There is no long term goose left with asset bubbles now if wages and jobs aren't at par to support prices necessary for inflation and hasn't been since 2008. If they don't stop QE deflation is still going to happen and here is why, the money keeps being mis-allocated the end result with all companies even ones who listed on the stock market paying dividends need revenues to exceed expenses, that is cold hard reality when no one is buying anything except for the bare necessities first they will cut operating expenses to the bone, lay off workers etc. when all that fails since people still don't have money and aren't spending then they have no choice but to cut margin next aka price decrease aka deflation when it happens across many sectors. It is going to happen if QE continues indefinitely. I agree new issuance is important but this is where Japan comes in to bridge the gap as long as Abenomics is in effect, which is a variation on the Asian joke if it moves, eat it, Abe will buy our bonds since they are vassal state to the US.

I should have stated on the FRN bonds they will refinance existing bonds held by the FED and probably Japan also into FRNs to put off payment of bonds coming due in the short term to hold down interest rates by doing a Wimpy J Wellington method of paying next Tuesday by extend and pretend as long as they can guarantee the current accrued amount including principal.

"The question is this, if they stop QE does all the money bottled up in the stock market all of a sudden flood into the economy "

Don't mix up stocks (not share certificates) and flows. The only money "in" the stock market is what flows daily. If you wanted to liquidate the stock market, prices would plunge faster than you can grab your ass.

What the Wizards behind the curtain are doing now is providing the liquidity so that the JPM's and the Goldmans of the world can buy and sell target assets, the stock market being one, so that the illusion of rising asset prices can be achieved.

If we were in a real economy, you would be collecting 3% plus on your savings, net of inflation, at your local bank. But why would our self-appointed Financial Royalty pay you 3 %, when Bernanke gives them money for nothing ?

We know this for sure: JPM is fucked!

When bonds implode, gold and silver will explode.
When gold and silver explodes, JPM implodes. (because of the massive shorts.) 
If JPM implodes, stocks as a whole will implode.

You might be right, it could be the case that goldman and the rest of them won't let it happen until they position themselves properly. Maybe JPM will somehow reverse their shorts and save themselves.

I am the only one who sees this almost inevitable chain reaction? Why is no one talking about this chain?

Let's not forget the BOJ. IMO, the yen will likely be the first currency to collapse (the BOJ's printfest makes the Fed look conservative).  The yen carry trade is now propelling risk assests (and Euro junk bonds) as well as treasuries. Don't forget the law of diminishing returns when it comes to QE (it's all about the flow).  QE effects have largely worn off.  If not for the insane BOJ printing, the Fed would have had to increase QE. That's why Abe was "encouraged" to go kamikze (giving Ben some slack). When Japanese institutions get nervous and start selling yen with both hands, that will be the end game....

Kito here is the deal as I see it. I know you are hung up on Schiff wavering on hyperinflation. My point is, if we get to the point where Schiff wavers, inflation has hit so hard that the dollar is substantially lower against everything. So gold will have massively appreciated. At that point we are in the Kyle Bass camp. The dollar is still alive, but is basically wompum. From there austerity is almost pointless because everyone will be broke anyway.

So it is you vs Bass and Schiff.

Your scenario, which I find absolutely plausable is...

Dollar sells off hard....eventually taking bonds with it. Interest rates spike and that takes down the banks. Kiss all your digital dollars goodbye. Cash is king.

That argument has convinced me to hold cash. There could be a period where as the dust settles, cash rules the day. After it is settled whatever new currency asserts itself, is where gold will come into play and cash will finally be trash.

Now you are a big Remnimbi guy, so maybe you hold a bunch of Remnimbi (cash I hope because any Bank of China Remnimbi will be Corzined) instead of gold. It's possible you will be okay with that.

What I find interesting, is that you (as far as I know) own zero gold. You are so convinced that a dollar collapse means cash is king (which is a somewhat flawed, somewhat plausable argument) that you have no need to diversify or hedge yourself even a little. Why not hedge your bets just a bit?

Think about it. Thanks to you I am hedged for either scenario. But you have only a 50/50 shot and I have a better chance of giving you shit when we are in our state required mandarin class in a few years.

I am no historian but back then they all got suckered into the US buy bonds War propoganda right? I think that would fail today but let's not get into that.

To your point....If we go the Cyprus/Captain Jack on us then that puts us in the Capital controls scenario where cash is king. I think that also throws us into the depressionary bond collapse scenario that takes the dollar with it. At some point a new currency is issued and the US is no longer calling the shots. We are full blown Soviet Union piss broke mode. If they go that route all bets are off all over the place and I am in a canoe to Cuba where I am sure I will be welcomed with open arms.

Let me ask you this...why go the Cyprus route? Why not collapse the market and blame wall street bigshots all over again? Then have the gubbamint come in and offer each individual a 20% boost on their post crash principal in exchange for a 4% interest rate on their principal which they concede ownership of in exchange. Now we have established the bad guys are not politicians and instead of Cyprus the sheep go running with open arms to the gov't.

The only question is can they pul that move off without collapsing the bond markets, the dollar and the banks.

Your attitude exemplifies the short term perspective of wanting immediate reurns that has dominated much of Wall Street over the past 20+ years.

Schiff did well shorting subprime, & has done well with foreign stocks if you go back about 10 years. He'll be the first to say he does not make short term recommendations. He is not a trader. His perspective is that he's going to build his financial house on high ground, sit back & watch when the financial flood eventually comes. Many others are down in the valley trying to pick that last bit of fruit not even realizing they are in a valley. His predictions are the type that appear very wrong until they become absolutely right such as subprime, the housing bubble, and the financial crash in 2007 that made it very apparent that economy is extremely sick.

He's like an electrical engineer that has calculated that a wire has a large amount of electricity flowing in it. Financial dipshits walk up to Schiff & the wire & tell him they can't "see" any current flowing and they proceed to piss on the wire to show how wrong he was.

I would just be careful about what your pissing on.

Bass is correct: 

Single family rentals (i.e. houses) are maintenance nightmares for a landlord. the groups that bundling single family dwellings as investment vehicles are morons.  Multiple family rentals (think 4plex section 8 housing)  are affordable to many middle class investors. 

Oil wells you can own by having shares direct registered in a quality E&P company. That's easier than real estate.

There is no excuse, for anyone this connected to the electronic information highways, to be this disconnected from reality or so disingenuous, especially after their pre-crash derision of anyone remotely thinking that there was something wrong. The snickering, outright guffaws and offensive ridicule of the man and not the idea, are the hallmarks of the feeble minded and philosophically lazy. The crash of '08 should have been evidence enough to induce a moment of reflection about their position and behaviour, but the ensuing economic chain of events which can be directly linked to it (GFC), shows off this innately self-destructive system for what it is.. That they refust to investigate shows that there is no saving these fools from their own folly.

Money is the MEDIUM of Exchange between things of value, whereby Things of Value are Goods and Services.  All money is based on common (mass-market) faith that others will accept the unit that you accepted.

This Medium of exchange can be metal-based, paper-based or electronic-based.  People who ridicule the electronic version of BTC are being hypocrytes, insofar they use Debit or Credit cards -- which are also electronic.

The issues of the Supply of money, its creation 'Cost' (free or debt-based) and Issuing Authority are seperate issues -- different pairs of shoes.

I'm definitely on Schiff's side, but it amazes me that the commenters here seem to lack access to Wikipedia. It's not that hard to check who her husband is. (Hint: Not named Eisner.) Also, Mary Matalin's husband is James Carville. Does that make her a Democrat?
