Part 2 of Interview: Prepare for the End

Investment Ideas


  • "Gold, and silver and platinum have been neglected as objects of speculation."
  • "Some emerging markets are quite depressed, and some have economies that in the long run look reasonably good."

Faber's Portfolio

Faber's portfolio is 25% precious metals, 25% real estate, 25% equities, and 25% bonds.

Faber predicts cash will vanish, but will be replace by "equally bad" central bank cryptocurrencies.

"Who do want to control your money," asks Faber. 

"The beauty of gold and silver is nobody controls it."

Tomorrow's Gold

Faber is author of "Tomorrow's Gold", the best investment book ever written.

Despite the title, the book is not about gold or precious metals. It is about investing in undervalued assets and holding them until they aren't.

If you have not yet read the book, pick up a copy and read it.
