Marc Faber Is Back: "It Will End Badly... We're In A Worse Position Than 2008"

Tyler Durden's picture


"It will end badly," Marc Faber explains in this brief CNBC clip, "the question is whether we will have a minor economic crisis and then huge money printing or get into an inflationary spiral first." If you thought that "we had a credit crisis in 2008 because we had too much credit in the economy," then Faber notes "there is that much more credit as a percent of the economy now." Of course, as Bill Fleckenstein recently noted, as long as stocks are rising, investors remain blinded by the exuberance, but as Faber concludes, "we are in a worse position than we were back then," and inflation is already here...



On China's explosive credit growth:

"Look at China, its credit as a percent of the economy has increased by 50 percent in the last 4-1/2 years. This is the fastest credit growth you can imagine in the whole of Asia,"

On the inevitable endgame:

"It will end badly and the question is whether we will have a minor economic crisis and then huge money printing or get into an inflationary spiral first,"

On the hidden inflation impacts around the world:

"Why are so many product prices in Singapore and Hong Kong more expensive than in the U.S.? It's because when you have asset inflation and high property prices, shops have to pay higher rents, so they charge more for their products. So asset inflation can flow into consumer inflation,"

That's what I don't get.  Yeah we all know what's happening is a bunch of bullshit but it's happening all the same.  So long as the Fed squirts $40 billion a month basically directly into the equities market why should the markets ever crash?  Why shouldn't we end up with gradually rising P/Es for as long as the game is on?

In other words, who is putting money where their mouth is and is shorting this shit?

The golden rule...He who has the money and the weapons rule. But It will end badly for the 3 billion in the undeveloped countries. For the 3 billion of us in developed countries we will continue to live well, not w/o complaining and bitching but always w a full stomach, cable/football/entertainment , cell phones, cars, a/c health care, (sex, sex and more sexx, education, etc. All developed countries engaging in competitive devaluation of currencies which supports entitlements which are necessary due to automation which makes most labor virtuously worthless. So the developed nations are strategically aligned against the undeveloped unarmed poor masses who earn $2/day while the .01% in the developed world will eventually own everything including weapons of mass destruction. The .01% have the money, the government and weapons. I am glad I live in America.

The developed countries are the worst places to be in today unless you are part of the elite. Global food prices will rise, but the availability will not drop. Food importers may have to subsidize food imports to keep the local prices under check, but entirely doable and preferable to food riots. Countries with subsistence level food production may have to curb food exports to keep local prices in check.

However, in the developed world, food bill will become the lergest component of their monthly expenses, pretty much like for those living on $2 a day in the developing countries. In absolute terms those in the developed world will be better off than their counterparts in the developing world, but that will hardly be a consolation when each passing day is worse off than the previous one.

Sir:  I have no interest in any form in Faber's success.  Faber and Felix Zualuf were among a clear-eyed group that saw what Fall 2008 produced.  No one can predict the future .... but if you smoke, eat candy all day and drink 2 6 packs of beer every day, well, something unhealthy will result to you.  That is all they are doing .... pointing out what is increasingly obvious.   Laugh & mock Faber all you want.  Do not expect someone to change your diaper for you ... you are a free-thinking independent agent.  Do what you will ...... now is the best time to go into equities ... or maybe next week ... or early next year ........

The point ..... you want the odds on your side when you commit your capital.    To many, the odds now are not in your favor.

This is why most mainstream economists fail miserably at predicting growth at the moment. Their models say there should be growth but they don't understand "the real" underlying economy, energy, resources...exponential growth inevitable ends up in scarcity and depletion. To them growth is a constant, but we humans are about to learn that nothing grows forever and that money and the economy is NOT seperated from the real world.

They can print a gazilion credit units...that won't magically materialize resources.

"Money" is always tied to labor, sooner or later.

The labor of the soldier, the teacher, the mason, and anyone else.

Representations of money and what it can buy are what changes.  Fiat, Precious Metals, Land, and ultimately Labor.

As the modern world devalues labor and the sweat of one's brow it becomes more and more valuable to revolt and end the status quo.

That is what history teaches.  Technology and new whiz-bang methods of valuation matter not; sooner or later it is reduced to individual labor and what individuals are willing to do, or not do.

Just why do you think the US military is in Afghanistan? Opium production was well down under the Taliban. Once the US came on the scene, production numbers went back to normal. The CIA has to make $$$ to pay for all those toys supplied by the MIC and what better way than to sell heroin on the world market.

Why does the zero-head leadership, always report 50+ year old news in the context that it is 'new'.

The CIA's job since 1947 is to protect the black-market worldwide and make sure that oil, drugs, human blood, tissue, whores, all all traded in US dollars.

So long as you trade in US dollars your gig is protected in the mob sense, if you were to say trade your cocaine for euros your family would get droned in a nano-second in columbia,

The USA is a failed PENAL COLONY, a nation of low IQ hairlips, genetically pre-disposed towards homocide. Probably the greatest PONZI of the USA was 'immigration', keep the worlds POOR flowing to the USA for cheap wages, and new felons to imprison.

MONEY is the Blood of the USA, so see the FED as a doctor, OREO-OBAMA was simply placed to put a black-face on Genocide in the OIL world, it didn't look good having a quayle or bush sending brown and black boyz to die in GS wars abroad.

Talk shit, ... Obama+FED, and pay NO attention to AIPAC, GS, and BIS.

Just like here on ZH, faber,bitcoin,rogers,paul,... just the same shit everyday, and never even close to understanding, ... yes repetition is insanity.

You need to rotate your tripe a little more. It's easily recognizable ananonymous. You used the same tripe almost word for word a week ago. But at least you went light on the use of quotations. Still don't know how to use them properly though. It's like you take the worst stereotypes about America and jam them into a post thinking it makes sense. Like a caricature. I wonder where you're from? I have my guesses but that's neither here nor there.

I would never argue that somehow the US is perfectly run or populated. But I'll take MY shithole over yours any day and I don't even know where you are.

2 Little Girls
by Paul Lojeski / November 11th, 2013
The first little girl was eight,
blonde and pretty. She lived
in a small town in America,
also called the Land of Heroes.
She was in the classroom of a
quaint little school in a nice part
of the country. I knew this because
she was in a commercial that ran
hundreds of times a day on the
Propaganda Box. Then a square-
jawed handsome man entered the
room He was a soldier wearing a
sharp military uniform. His dark
eyes, the eyes of a hunter, darted
about the room until they settled
on the pretty, little blonde girl
who he hadn’t seen in a year
and he moved quickly towards
her. When she saw him, she
started screaming in joy,
in unmitigated joy.

The second little girl was eight,
olive-skinned with thick, black
hair. She lived in a modest house
in northern Pakistan. I don’t
know this for a fact because
there was no commercial
on the Propaganda Box showing
her. Her house was next door
to an old man she called Uncle.
Uncle was on a list compiled by
Heroes. She was playing in the
living room. Her mother and father
and little brother were in the front
yard, talking to Uncle who was
in his yard, gardening. None
of them saw or heard the drone
approaching, piloted by the first
little girl’s father, known as Hero,
from an operations room on
a secret military base. He fired
the missile and it howled down

at them, and it was a direct
hit. Uncle and the second
little girl’s mother, father
and little brother were blown
to bits in a roar of destruction
and the second little girl ran
outside through walls
of burning black smoke
and leaping flames to see
the flesh of her beloved ones
ripped to shreds and she
started screaming in agony,
in unmitigated agony.

The retailers cannot survive high rents. They can't pas the price increases when the consumers have no money or credit.

Faber is a rootless cosmopolitan; part of the problem, not the solution. He only speaks out after he lost money, and hopes to regain it in ways that serve no land, no people, no decent society. He's one smart schmuck.

History shows you can print alot of extra paper notes and still have asset deflation....

because when the Govt is chasing to tax everyone's money (due to their own idiotic spending),

people will hide their money and prentend they have very little......

print all you want - the system will crash due to govt needing money and will introduce endless draconian laws to justify its elephant ass.

Money will be hoarded.

obama and the democrats have a lock on policy, though it is all falling apart, they do not seem to care because in the past they have been able to blame feckless republicans for all their mistakes. Will it really be different this time? The senators up for election this cycle are concerned, but none of the rest seem bothered by the coming crash.

i would recommend reading Ray Dalios research on deleveraging ...

instead of listening to someone who is just trying to get on TV in order to get some attention and sell his worthless research to retail investor
