The Backlog Ends
I have finally caught up with all of the back-catalog tapes from Peter Schiff's weekly broadcasts, discussing the current economic crisis.
The usual style is that The SchiffMeister sets off talking about something, takes a single breath, and then half an hour later stops talking about it. Phenomenal! Then he takes calls which he despatches remarkably well, seemingly with almost perfect omniscience, taking on any question and making his Austrian-based answers make absolutely irrefutable straightforward sense. Remarkable.
Each performance is simply outstanding, though he has had to let his brother and other key staff do one or two of his shows, because of the inumerable numbers of TV appearances he is now making throughout the world. Just where does he get the energy?
In one of the recent talks he alludes to a group of people who are trying to persuade him to stand as US Senator for Connecticutt. Let's hope he agrees to do this, as the New Ron Paul.
In the meantime, if you want to know what's really going on, then do yourself a favour and work through Peter Schiff's back catalog of weekly podcasts:
While you're at it, buy his two recent books, the first of which predicted the hows, the whys, and the whats, of this entire crisis, over a year before it started gathering pace:
Let's also hope that Mr Schiff ends up in the Warren Buffett league of billionaire entrepreneurs and that he then bankrolls the Ludwig von Mises Institute, with no strings attached.
The only remaining question is what am I going to listen to now, down at the gym? Lew Rockwell seems to have stopped broadcasting, so it looks like I'm down to Colin Hay again. Oh well, could be worse.
In the meantime, all power to The SchiffMeister.
