Marc Faber - Stock Markets Go Up Amidst Doom Because Central Bankers Don't Give A S**t!

Marc Faber :  “I agree with you, it’s going to end in disaster.  But it’s not going to end at the hand of central bankers because I know very well how they think….

“They are not going to tighten monetary policies any time soon.  They are in the driver’s seat in the sense that they will always find an excuse to print more.

They will say, ’OK we have to increase the purchases of assets because now the yield on Treasury bonds has gone up substantially, from less than 1.5% on the 10-Year note a year ago, to 2.68% as of today.’  So they will say, ‘That may damage the economy, so we have to buy more assets.’

And if they do that then the inflation rate may pick-up, and real wages may decline even more.  Then they will say, ‘Well, we didn’t do enough because the population isn’t doing well.’  They will always find an excuse to print more.  And as you said, it will end in disaster.  There is no doubt about that.

But then the central bankers and the neo-cons like Krugman will say, ‘Well, the disaster occurred because we didn’t spend enough money.  The fiscal deficits were not big enough.  We didn’t print enough money.’  I tell you they will misinform the people of the whole world continuously, and never assume any personal responsibility.

At least if a hedge fund loses money, he stands up and says, ‘Yes, I f*cked up, or I messed up.  I lost money.’  But the central bankers will always, always find an excuse that they are not guilty of any mistakes in their policies.  It’s a very vicious and despicable class of people (central bankers).”
