While Marc Faber shares the usual stock of insightful market commentary, together with timing inflection points, and extended thoughts in the attached Bloomberg TV clip, it is the fact that he has officially joined Bill Gross, and so many others, in supporting the candidacy of Ron Paul as president.
It is rather sad that only those who see beyond the surface of the current pyramid scheme facade, are bold enough to endorse the only man who is right for the White House. Fast forward to 15 minutes into the video to hear Marc Faber: “Ron Paul would be a very good president.”

(“Cyber war?”) ~ Marc Faber: ‘World War III Will Occur in the Next Five Years,’ but Relax, Equities Will Not Collapse
Dr. Marc Faber the Swiss fund manager and Gloom Boom & Doom editor has taken ultra bearishness to a new level. He remains negative about the outlook for the world because policy makers in Europe and the US are trying to solve the crisis created by too much debt and leverage with even more credit and leverage. Eventually when interest rates go up, he says, the cost of financing the failed monetary policies will become burdensome and will ultimately bring a big bust.
He sees a shift in economic and military power from West to East and is increasingly convinced that the end game will be war. But, so far, he had avoided giving a time frame to the war scenario. Not any longer.
Dr. Faber was amongst 10 investment experts assembled by Barron’s last week at the Harvard Club of New York for the Barron’s 2012 Roundtable. The members of the Roundtable discussed the economy, China, Europe, market volatility, investment picks and World War III.
“On an optimistic note, World War III will occur in the next five years,” Faber announced to the other members of the Roundtable, in his characteristic contrarian manner.
“That means the Middle East will blow up,” he said, without providing any details about specific countries.
When this happens, “new regimes there will be less Western-friendly,” he reckons.
“The West has figured out it can’t contain China, which is rising rapidly and will have more military and naval power in Southeast Asia,” he explains.
The only way for the West to contain China is to control the oil tap in the Middle East, Faber argued.
The prelude to war will be a “big bust that will see the end of credit expansion,” he said in a recent interview. But before this happens, “governments will continue printing money which in time will lead to a very high inflation rate, and the economy will not respond to stimulus”.

Escape From America by Jeff Berwick:
“im Rogers lives in Singapore. Marc Faber lives in Thailand. Doug Casey lives in numerous countries but spends most of his time in Uruguay and Argentina nowadays. Jim Willie in Costa Rica and Dudley Baker and Fred Reed both live in Mexico, as do I.
The next article I happened to come across was this story regarding Jesse Ventura entitled, ‘Ventura Threatens to Vacate US Over TSA Groping’. Ventura already spends much of the year in Mexico but is saying that if his case against the TSA is thrown out of court he will expatriate permanently.
It is interesting, also, where many of these like-minded people are going. They’ve all gone to either Latin America or Asia. In this blog I’ve stated many times how I believe those two areas are the places to be for the future.
