Peter Schiff’s understanding of economics, while not as good and in depth as Robert Wenzel’s for instance, is still very good when it comes to the end game. Whereas someone like Wenzel is arguably better at spotting more twists and turns within the business cycle, Schiff is good at pounding away at the inevitable.
While Wenzel holds that the Fed will nominally raise rates around September, Schiff holds that they won’t, and at that point, the cat will be out of the bag and everyone will realize that rates will never, ever rise.
