Chief Economist & Global Strategist of Euro Pacific Capital
Peter Schiff is the Chief Economist & Global Strategist of Euro Pacific Capital, a division of Alliance Global Partners. He is one of the few widely known economists and investment professionals to have warned about the financial crisis before it began. As a result of his commentary on the U.S. stock market, economy, real estate, the mortgage meltdown, credit crunch, subprime debacle, commodities, gold and the dollar, he is becoming increasingly more renowned. He is a widely followed opponent of debt-fueled growth policies and known for his advocacy for emerging market and commodity-focused investments in countries with positive fiscal characteristics.
Schiff has been quoted hundreds of times in leading news outlets around the world. He also regularly appears on media such as CNBC, CNN, The BBC, Al Jazeera, Fox News, and Fox Business Network. His best-selling book, “Crash Proof: How to Profit from the Coming Economic Collapse” was published by Wiley & Sons in February of 2007. His fourth book, “The Real Crash – America’s Coming Bankruptcy” was published by St. Martin’s Press in May of 2012.
He is known to be a gold enthusiast and one of the biggest Bitcoin skeptic.
"Some have postulated that investors are selling #gold and buying #Bitcoin. Since they have nothing in common, I doubt that's happening. But some speculators may be selling gold stocks and buying GBTC, with gold stocks falling as gold rises, and GBTC trading up to a 25% premium."
