Marc Faber: The Economy Will Not Return for Years

Marc feels, “The economy is currently in a dead-cat bounce and that peak economic levels seen in 2018-2019 will not come back for a long-time… and by a long-time… years.”

Marc questions the belief that government and central banker actions create prosperity. This may be true in the short-term, but it likely has very negative consequences in the long-term. Governments are not very productive, and most things can be done far more efficiently in the private sector.

Marc discusses how he has seen firsthand the socialist and communist systems of the world and how they are a disaster for personal and economic freedom. He says, “Socialism always brings less freedom and unpleasant rulers.”

The Fed finances the state, and today many people are earning more staying at home than actually working. The government will undoubtedly have to institute further programs to support the populace.

The problem with rising assets is that it further increases wealth concentration. This, in turn, increases social tensions, and this instability can cause further hardships for the populace. It’s vital for a society to due what is right and not do things like make the stock markets go up.

Peering into the future of U.S. empire, a Soviet-style collapse is possible and the dollar will lose its reserve status, but the geopolitical danger point comes when the stimulus effects wear off and Washington may consider escalating tensions with Eurasia including through the use of false flag operations as is typically done throughout history.

Marc Faber: Investors Should Be Open To Learning From Mistakes

Learning from mistakes is crucial for any investor to thrive in the world of stock markets according to the legendary investor and author of the Gloom Boom and Doom report, Marc Faber.

Learning from mistakes is crucial for any investor to thrive in the world of stock markets according to the legendary investor and author of the Gloom Boom Doom report, Marc Faber.

Faber had famously predicted the 1987 stock market crash which resulted in the then all 23 of the world markets to crash. The Swiss investor also predicted the rise of commodities like oil, precious metals and of emerging markets like China in his 2002 book "Tomorrow's Gold: Asia' Age of Discovery".

Reliving his four-decade-long experience as an investor and fund manager, Faber told BOOM admitting one's mistakes and learning from them will only help an investor grow."I think I've millions regrets and I've made millions of mistakes in my life. And you know, life is a learning process. And the fact that you age does not prevent you from making mistakes," he said.

Apart from keeping an open mind, Faber also advised budding and established investors to realise that the markets do not follow any one's beliefs and opinions and that rather they should study how the markets react to changes.

"It is an important insight that within the discipline that you follow, you continuously have to think that your view and my view are basically irrelevant. The market will move according to many different criteria. They will look at many different factors. And then the market moves independently of what you and I think. That is a very important insight for an investor," he said.
