The Man Who Predicted the Financial Crisis

More

It has taken me considerable effort to unravel the financial crisis.  Here is a video of Peter Schiff telling a story that is very close to mine--except that the video is shot in 2006, before the crisis hit. The video breaks the speech into segments, and the segment to which I linked is in the middle of the speech.

People have been mentioning Schiff to me for quite some time in comments on my analysis, saying things like, "You and he are on the same page." That's very flattering, but where was I in 2006? I think this is a must-watch video, because it shows how clearly he saw the crash coming.

Thanks to Michael Holmes for the pointer.
