Harry Dent is a long-time gold bear. He used to say gold would fall to $250. He’s revised that prediction up a bit, but still calls for a steep decline in the price of the yellow metal – perhaps to as low as $700.
Peter Schiff took on this notion during a recent interview on RT’s Boom Bust and explained why he thinks Harry is wrong.
The bottom line is Dent has too much faith in the US dollar.

On Sept. 22, Peter Schiff spoke at the Nexus Conference in Aspen, Colorado, and argued that the financial crisis in 2008 was just the opening act. The real crisis will result from the way the government and the Federal Reserve responded to the 2008 crash.
I don’t think 2008 was the crisis. I think that was kind of the overture to this opera.”
As we all become more immersed in the silver and gold buying world we see the fear mongering around every corner. “No, the risks…it’s not a safe investment!”…”The government could knock on your door and take it all away tomorrow.”
We all know the FDR story back in the 1930’s where an executive order required all citizen’s gold to be collected at local Federal Reserve branches and then given an artificial price increase. Today the fear lives on as the precious metal world proliferates the executive order’s chance to reappear. There are several reasons why silver and gold have a very small chance of ever being taken from its owners’ hands by the government. Silver above all stands little chance of confiscation. Its industrial use and meek presence in the United States wouldn’t even assist the government with the astronomical debt today. It also wouldn’t be the individuals the government would first target; it’d be the mining companies.
Learn more about the history of the gold confiscation and why, especially silver, and gold are safe in the hands of investors. Aside from that, do you really think FDR’s executive order rid the hands of all Americans?
This video, in the majority of the first half, covers all the reasons why silver, especially, has low odds of ever being confiscated by the Federal Government.
As gold scams pop up around the country and world we are providing you information in order to help you avoid becoming a victim of the scams. This time around it’s not the precious metal dealer that is scamming you. It’s the one rating the deceitful precious metal dealer.
Peter Schiff talked this month on his show on SchiffRadio.com about a suspicion he had about the Better Business Bureau (BBB) and their rating system. The gold scam of the year was undoubtedly the GoldLine fiasco, and with their trial taking place this month in Santa Monica, Peter decided to check and see what happened to their BBB rating. They were originally listed as an A+, now no rating existed at all. No F’s, not even a C! This wasn’t because they were disqualified all together from the site for their obvious fraudulent activity…the site’s reason for no rating was that there was “not enough information” to rate this company. HA!
