Is Peter wrong?

Would like to hear some actual criticism if it exists but in all of his videos the people he debates come off as children.

well he might not be wrong about most things but he has been wrong about the crash every fucking year so far.

but if he keeps saying stuff like that in the next decade or two he is bound to be right at least once.

>wrong about the crash every fucking year so far.
He was right about the great recession and its magnitude and was laughed at for years before that shit went down.

>wrong about the crash every fucking year so far
This is true but I'm inclined to think it reflects how fucking crazy the fed is to keep digging. It's unheard of in US economics to have interests rates not only at 0, but almost an entire decade of it. It just sounds like he thought it couldn't get any worse and yet the fed continues to outright lie. I'm trying to understand the fed's logic as to what the fuck they are doing aside from stalling.

Doomsayer? The doom is unquestionable hence the entire fucking deficit and the rate it grows along with the fed who lies systematically because they know we are fucked. If the economy is good, why wouldn't they raise it? They know the game they play.

Nobody can predict what the fed can do and how reckless they seem to behave, pretty sure the government can't even audit them? They are playing the dartboard game, and seem to love the politics involved.

Looking for economic criticism, that's not one of them.

In all seriousness his speech to the real estate conference in approx 2005 was very impressive.

The problem is he is very dogmatic about gold, the US dollar. Maybe he got that from his father. He insisted from 2009 to 2011 (he went quiet somewhat after) that the US dollar was the ugliest currency.

The Federal Reserve is not keeping interest rates to "prop up the economy". The Fed uses interest rates to control inflation at a slight positive level. For a number of reasons, including oil prices crashing, a large deflationary period during the recession and so on, inflation has been at a low level already. They are not lowering interest rates to give banks liquidity - banks have plenty of liquidity.
>>

>They post quarterly and annual financial statements audited by a third party firm
So basically as opaque as they can go? Why are they so strange with this? It seems like they almost do what the fuck they want. These videos are laughable, Bernanke quivers.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n0NYBTkE1yQ

>The Federal Reserve is not keeping interest rates to "prop up the economy"
Really? I thought that was almost the entire point during troubled times and factually is what they do just about every recession.
"In light of the continued solid performance of the labor market and our outlook for economic activity and inflation, I believe the case for an increase in the federal funds rate has strengthened in recent months,” (Yellen)

Their rates influence the rate at which banks loan to each-other and individuals, no? If the economy is so good, why do we still have almost 0% interest rates for almost a decade now and extreme hesitation to raise decimal places? Why is Yellen deceiving everyone with all of these supposed hikes that never happened? Job growth reports seem also very misleading when so many of the jobs are part/time or shit.

This stuff is complicated and i'm no expert but I don't see how someone can think the economy is flourishing when the fed certainly doesn't. Feel free to explain otherwise because I don't see the strategy.
>>
>>1764083
>financial statements are opaque
What? What else would they do? That's about as transparent as they can possibly be. Also you can Google who owns US bonds.

>Fed's entire point is to give out money during troubled times
Yes, that was what it was established for. When the banks suffered a liquidity crisis during the recession they acted as a bank of last resort. Lowered interest rates do help liquidity. These are tools the fed has. But they also execute monetary policy together with the treasury for the benefit of the economy.

>Yellen
Those factors she mentioned are about inflation. The higher aggregate demand of a stronger labour market and low interest rates increases inflation. So the fed raises interest rates, tightening the money supply to lower inflation. The goal is 2% inflation.

>if the economy is so good why are interest rates so low?
I'm not disagreeing the economy is bad right now, I'm disagreeing with why the fed lowered interest rates. It's a common misconception the fed lowers interest rates to make captial cheaper and thus increase investment. This is partially true but what actually determines the rates is inflation.

If inflation is too low or goes negative, just holding money becomes profitable and investments decrease. Less investments, supply of goods fall but demand stays the same, prices go up. Holding money becomes even more profitable. This cycle is called a deflationary spiral. If inflation is too high, the economy overheats as people dump money into investments. More goods, but demand stays the same, prices go down. This is an inflationary spiral.

The fed stops this by raising interest rates during inflation to tighten the money supply and vice versa.

So the idea that the economy is so shit even with low interest rates means there's a recession is coming is false. All you can say is inflation has been very low and will go up in the future.
>>
>>1764172
I appreciate your well-written answers anon, what you're saying does mostly make sense. Refreshing from the contrarian memes.

I just don't understand where this zero interest ends without a very bumpy ride. It's unheard of and fucking weird. I know they balance inflation but CPI is such bullshit and the fed only came to my interest when I learned that inflation isn't really getting bad when it's getting crazy where I live with so many shit jobs, startups, skyrocketing CoL.

It seems so strange to me from all angles, including their deception about their future actions. The top officials donating money to Clinton too, and hike the rates as soon as Obama leaves/Hillary Loses/Trump comes in. They are far from clean I think.

What is different that causes the distinct sunk tail in this graph from all the other years? Let's keep in mind the deficit has doubled during these same years to $20+ trillion. It's all a clusterfuck but I hope i'm wrong.

Equities are only denominated in dollars, if you buy $10,000 of stock you won't lose anything if the US dollars drops 10%, the stock will just be priced with a higher number

You will only "lose" because a 10% drop IMPLIES general economic hardship, but if you're not holding paper currency you'll suffer least

This is my layman's understanding

gold has always been the scapism on monetary collapses, because, you know, gold has been understood apreciated at the same time in completly different cultures along all history, gold and silver has actually been the technology that has pushed comerce between them

you should read mises to understand economy and emergent events with a fresh new perspective

gold is an institution, as family or language, that has evolved from a bunch of clusterfucks of trial and error along with our specie, just as insurances, paper money of certificated goods and stock markets

thinking gold as a currency is weird only now, but well, even now family is becoming a joke, it used to be the life goal, and anything else was around that key point, now it's not

that doesn't mean it's worthless, it's just less popular, things loose up and get forgoten or ignored, even if these were better systems/ideas

you can't eat it, drink it, it won't provide any service, yeh, but it's not about that
think about oxygen, you can't even stay alive with just few minutes without breathing it, and yet, it's worthless

liquidity, volatility, scarcity and marginal utility, on top of inmutavility, cheap and secured stockholding, transportation, is all that matters.

cryptocurrencies were designed to copy gold because all that shit combined is good

marginal utility of most things have a roof, gold, as any other currency or top tier liquidable goods, does not, ever

If he is libertarian how can he justify investment strategies weighted toward parts of the world where the rule of law is imperfectly applied.

He only sees problems with the USA.

The USA is the only major economy NOT facing a demographic trap, since it's economy is growing and skilled young people across the globe want to emigrate and work in the US.
>>
>>1766348
I agree on that. He's over focused on the USA, there're plenty central banks to shot truths, not noly the FED, the clusterfuck isn't about the dollar alone, all currencies, all stockmarkets, futures derivatives

To be accurate, richer countries now have the citiziens who have the major wasted investment of resources on their education/skills ever

Growth is an oasis in the desert, it's an ilusion. Credit expansion distort reality and temporal priorities.

When you over incentive real state investing, it also carries all related bussines related to produce goods used in construction, the economy is pushed up at so many levels but that's just as temporary as low interest rates are keeping that real state bubble due to cheap credit.

Peter Schiff predicts a recession every year, obviously if he predicts one every year he's going to be right.

What's more striking is the fact that he lost his clients money in the 07-08 recession. He told them to buy European stocks and didn't understand the global nature of the crisis and believed it would be the nail in the coffin for the US dollar. At this point, he's just a shilling idiot that doesn't even have the self-respect to change his views in response to contrary data like Larry Kudlow or Jim Bullard.

it just occurred to me anons.
so far the winning strategy was to invest in the market and hold long term right?

that was however because the economy was growing. but what if the coming decades will be one huge contraction? what will perform well in a huge huge depression?

to me it looks simple demographics. the developed world the technological and industrially advanced world with huge gdp all has a downtrend in demographics. if the population contracts so will the economy or at the very least it will mostly stagnate i'm almost sure of this.

real estate will be cheaper in the future stocks will be cheaper bonds will be cheaper very possibly metals will be cheaper as less people are contesting over them. what you can invest in that is depression proof? and what if an economic depression is coupled with a monetary inflation? then not even cash is good to hold right? i'm talking about an economy riddled with dept that is not performing well and the money print starts and there is no breaks on it.

A lot of arguments why the recovery after the 08 recession was so slow, probably had something to do with decreased innovation, and massive amounts of workers falling out of the labor force when firms realized they were not needed. Offshoring and no real programs to help the workers who lost their jobs because of it definently did not help either.

>It's less deception, and more that they kept getting fucked by market forces and had to keep readjusting
Can you elaborate more? It seems you imply they are incompetent at their jobs. So by continually putting out statements, even though they are so consistently wrong in predictions, it's deception in perspective of everyone else that's not the fed. They failed their jobs.

>They were gonna raise rates in December no matter what happened because the data showed that they can.
Still don't see how this stays consistent with anything else they've claimed. Their officials were caught donating to Hillary's campaign and the coincidence remains that they suddenly announce a series of hikes as soon as Obama is finished. They are playing dirty, which is expected, because the consequences are almost non-existent. Why wouldn't they do this?

>A lot of arguments why the recovery after the 08 recession was so slow
Well sure. I just want something more convincing because it's a completely different approach to anything done prior. I really have no fucking idea what to think regarding that, but what is the result? The recovery is mostly a joke and has built a buffer that will collapse harder.

Millennials are so fucked it's hard to put into perspective.

i dont get it, is this suppose to be pro-keynsan poster? its no wonder austrians are stuck in 1920 reasoning

>substantial inflation
why do you think there would be substantial inflation when recessions produce deflationary pressures

>its no wonder austrians are stuck in 1920 reasoning
But that school of thought has developed and evolved in a manner not that different from the evolution in the Keynesian model.

Is "stuck in reasoning" even a bad thing? It might mean it's just a result from following something closer to Occam's razor, which means not continually making assumptions and over-complicating things. To take to extreme: same reason that anarchy hasn't changed from the initial proposition.

and what are post-hayek accomplishments of autrian school?
and the rest?
1. behavioral economics
2. efficient markety hypothesis
3.rational expectations
4. good central bank polciy(where almost any bank in the world can have stable inflation, something unheard of in 19th century
5.public choice theory
6. game theory
7. human capitsal theory
and thats just off the top of my head.
Look, I am not saying austrian economics is bad at analyzing things, but it unfortunately fails at analyzing any complex situation because of its inability to even consider mathematical models and statistical techniques.
> Occam's razor, which means not continually making assumptions and over-complicating things
but the world is compex, just look at all the disccusions on /pol/ and /biz/ as to the effect of 20% tax on mexican imports- there are many logical examples to all sides of the debate, but without mathematical models and calculations of elasticity they are all just bad guesses

>and what are post-hayek accomplishments of Austrian school?
Anon these arguments just come down to what is mostly semantics. Chicago school has had influences from both. Let's not be so binary but I think you understand.

>but it unfortunately fails at analyzing any complex situation
Have you heard the term naive-keynesian? These two models are just a core to be built upon. A perfect system will never be created and both have had plenty of contribution to today's economics. Yes Keynesian thought still dominates, but who knows of what the alternative reality would look like? Obama was Keynes biggest fan and look at our current economy.

>but the world is complex
Yes, of course. But the solutions to the most complex problems are often the simplest or most efficient when broken to simple modules. This is especially evident in hard science. Think of medicine, when someone has a sore throat do you first test for some rare genetic disorder or the common cold?

Ultimately this board really doesn't know anything and we just speculate. People who have had their entire lives in economics are still debating with each-other and clash constantly. Who are we to fanboy a particular someone when economics isn't even entirely objective? Just not a real debate to be had here but I think you can agree.

Austrian economics assumes all human beings are 110 IQ + rational males

I'm not a Keynesian either. Just because I don't like Schiff doesn't make me a Keynesian. This is why nobody likes Austrians and you are literally the joke of economics. Kill yourself.

>predicted his first recession with absolute precision

He was wrong about the Europeans. He's been a permabear throughout the current rally.
