Peter Schiff: 2008 A ‘Tremor,’ ‘Real Earthquake Is Still In Our Future’

The CEO of Euro Pacific Capital, Peter Schiff, appeared on the Alex Jones Show last Friday. Schiff, who correctly-called last decade’s housing crash and recent global economic crisis, talked about the state of the U.S. economy- and how the 2008 crisis was just a “tremor” before the real earthquake. From their exchange:

JONES: So you think that we may already actually be in a recession.
SCHIFF: All of the indicators, if you look at most of the economic indicators that are out there, they’re flashing recession. I mean, the only thing that isn’t is the low unemployment rate and the jobs that we’re creating. But then when you look beneath the surface, and we’ve discussed this before on your program, when you realize that all the jobs that are being created are low-paying, part-time jobs. The reason there are so many jobs is because people now have two or three. And so if you have three jobs that you count as having- it’s three instead of just one. But they don’t add up to one good, full-time job. And you have lots of people who have left the labor force. And I think one of the reasons the unemployment claims are so low is because so few people are being hired, that not that many people are being fired. You can’t lose a job unless you get a job. And so since we’re really creating so few legitimate jobs, there’s not a lot of people that are collecting unemployment. So this economy is very weak, despite the rosy scenario, the fiction, that the President is trying to paint.

And from later on in the program:

JONES: Speaking of earthquakes, you’re famous for quoting, I mean famous for this quote, “2008 was a tremor for the earthquake that’s coming.” Is that what you’re still saying?
SCHIFF: Yeah and I’ve been saying that all along even before 2008. Because I saw 2008 coming, and unfortunately I also saw how the government would respond to 2008. And they did exactly what I feared they would do, what I warned they would do, and that is exactly why the real earthquake is still in our future- it’s not in our past. And people have to prepare for that. And by the way, silver hit a new high today for this year, for 2016. So people are starting to wake up. It’s happening very slowly, but it’s happening.
