Powerful Insights From the Debate:

“Instead of taking your money by taxing you openly and directly or even indirectly through a sales tax, [the government] surreptitiously robs you of your purchasing power by just creating money out of thin air, usually with a complicit central bank.”
— Peter Schiff

“I’ve always liked gold, but gold has not done particularly well in recent years. Against debasement on a globalized basis, it still works beautifully well as a global currency, and against global debasement over time. It works. But the really strong debasement we’ve been having in recent years, it just hasn’t done well enough”
— Raoul Pal

“So I think people who are getting out of the dollar or the euro and buying bitcoin have jumped out of the frying pan into the fire.”
— Peter Schiff

“What’s harder is to say, what the hell does an economy mean after 2030, when you’ve got endless AI and robots and AGI? What what value do you provide in that world?”
— Raoul Pal

“Because the free market is trying to lower prices by increasing productivity, the government is raising them by creating inflation. And so it’s a dance. But to the extent that we can have a huge surge in productivity that’s driven by AI or robotics or a combination of the two, that’s actually a good thing.”
— Peter Schiff

“And I just urge all of us to just make sure that we don’t get obsessed by our own mental models, because they will change, and the world changes. And sometimes we can be dead wrong, and sometimes we can be dead right.”
— Raoul Pal

“Our ability to stimulate with QE, with inflation is predicated on the false belief that the fed could shrink the balance sheet, withdraw the liquidity, normalize interest rates, we can pay off the debt. When the markets come to the unfortunate realization that that’s not true, then the bottom drops out and we can’t kick the can down the road anymore because there’s no more road.”
— Peter Schiff
