I wouldn't call this a "superb analysis". In an interview yesterday he recommended buying real estate and commodities because the immediate threat is inflation. I think he is wrong about this and the dollar. He thinks money printing can stop deflation but at the same time has some kind of Armageddon scenario in mind. IMO we get one or the other, not both. If we get inflation it means things just carry as they have for the past decade; the economy running on an unsustainable increase in debt. Being bearish on the dollar and buying commodities was a good play 6 months ago and is looking like a crowded position right now. Not up to Faber's usual standards.

I think Mark Faber is Cgnao. This is exactly the scenario that Cg talked about a couple of years ago. The whole prediction hangs on the actions of the Fed. He thinks that they will print to stop deflation, and print again and again until they cause the Armageddon collapse of the financial system as we know it, and by destroying the dollar, cause the total loss of American hegenomy. Financial collapse and geopolitical turmoil could equal Armageddon. So far, the Fed is totally with the program.
