Own Gold to Protect your Wealth against Financial and Geopolitical Risk

Despite recent disappointing economic data from the US, it is generally expected that the Federal Reserve will begin to taper its asset purchases. No matter what the Fed decides, any tapering or even lack thereof, its size, and what the FOMC implies for future tapering will almost certainly spark sharp price reactions in the bond markets, currency markets, stock markets, and precious metals.

Marc Faber explains in this interview the consequences of tapering and the potential motives of the US Fed. First, however, he expresses his concerns about the stock market. He compares the situation in Asia with the one in the US. The Asian markets were up some 20% between the beginning of the year and May but came down sharply since. On the other hand, the S&P500 reached its peak on August 2nd. Meantime many emerging markets are down 50% since their 2009 highs.
