He's well-known in the "Austrian" as well as the libertarian economic community, but is perhaps best known for his belief that our next coming crisis is going to be "an order of magnitude larger than the crisis in 2008", only this one, the Federal Reserve is not going to be able to print their way out of, Schiff predicts in his most recent interview.
"What the Fed is worried about is a repeat of the 2008 financial crisis. What they don't realize is the next crisis is not going to look like the 2008 crisis," Schiff said.
He makes the why the dollar going up in 2008 helped the Fed bail everyone out, and why it's going to be impossible for the Fed to do the same thing when the dollar collapses during the next recession. Schiff also explains that a loss of confidence in the dollar as the world's reserve currency could see interest rates move much higher, resulting in the U.S. defaulting on its debt.
