Peter's Articles

Currently, some market watchers have begun to openly question whether the bull market in stocks has finally come to an end. They certainly have cause to worry, writes Peter Schiff, Chief Economist and Global Strategist Euro Pacific Capital.
While currency traders often get the fundamentals completely wrong, it never seems to stop them from offering bizarre theories to explain currency movements, writes Peter Schiff.
Market watchers around the world are justifiably fixated with the high-stakes, high-drama unfolding in Italy. A political crisis in the world's ninth largest economy, according to the IMF, would normally not be enough to cause an international meltdown, writes Peter Schiff.
An asset bubble and a false economic recovery will not have a positive outcome says Euro Pacific Capital's Peter Schiff.

With US debt levels set to rocket into the stratosphere, many investors have failed to understand how the new reality will impact their portfolios. Whether the red ink flows from the latest Covid relief packages, or the bevy of economically moronic ideas coming from the new Democrat administration in Washington, annual Federal deficits will remain in the multi-trillion range for the foreseeable future. Almost all of the shortfall will likely be monetized the printing presses of the Federal Reserve. Unlike the past, no one now expects the Fed will ever turn the spigots off. After a decade of dollar strength powering US stocks, the momentum may soon reverse. Investments denominated in foreign currencies are poised to dominate. Peter Schiff explains where the opportunities can be found.

As the election approaches, many are busy forecasting the potential winners and losers if the Democrats take the White House, the Senate, or both. But from an investment perspective, the outcome really doesn't matter that much, as the ultimate loser may be the US dollar itself.

To an extent that is largely overlooked, the decade between 2010 and 2020 saw a stunning rise in the value of the US dollar, which served as the hidden mainspring for global investment performance. But the world is finally waking up to dollar's extreme vulnerability to runaway US debt, totaling more than $4 trillion in 2020 alone. Unlike the situation 10 years ago, no one seriously expects the monetary and fiscal policies of the US to ever meaningfully tighten again. This means the dollar's position at the top of the monetary hierarchy is threatened. If it falls, as even many in the mainstream expect it will, global investment returns will change fundamentally. Peter Schiff can help you map out a course in the new world ahead.
