Dr Marc Faber returns to the program to provide his latest macro outlook. Marc is a PhD in economics, author and long-time Editor & Publisher of the Gloom Boom Doom Report. It’s quite pessimistic, as Marc sees the combination of ‘too much debt’, asset bubbles, a moribund global economy, and smoldering social unrest resulting from historic levels of wealth inequality serve as a pressure cooker that will break badly somewhere in the system. Add in short-sighted (incompetent) political decision making & he sees a highly turbulent era ahead. One in which “a lot of people are going to lose a lot of money” Stock, bond, real estate — all these markets are vulnerable and likely to drop much further from here in Marc’s estimation.
Dr. Marc Faber was born in Zurich, Switzerland and obtained a PhD in Economics at the University of Zurich. Between 1970 and 1978, Dr. Faber worked for White Weld & Company Limited in New York, Zurich and Hong Kong. From 1978 to February 1990, he was the Managing Director of Drexel Burnham Lambert (HK) Ltd. In 1990, he set up his own business, Marc Faber Limited which acts as an investment advisor and fund manager. Dr. Faber publishes a widely read monthly investment newsletter, “The Gloom Boom & Doom Report,” which highlights unusual investment opportunities, and is the author of several books including Tomorrow’s Gold: Asia’s age of discovery which was a best seller on Amazon. Dr. Faber is known for his “contrarian” investment approach and charismatic personality. He became infamous after calling the 1987 crash in US equities.
