"Basically what we have this bull market in assets between 2002 and the end of 2007 early 2008 and a weak dollar during that time , 2008 was the opposite , a strong dollar and all assets markets went down except for bonds and now in 2009 we bottomed out on the S&P at 666 in march and since then have rallied strongly and in emerging markets even more but the dollar was weak , and I expect now may be for the next couple of months a period of recovering dollar and a correction time in asset markets " says Marc Faber "The Us is the least cyclical economy as Professor Roubini pointed out emerging economies are essentially more cyclical than the US economy , they're like a warrant on US economy , and I think in a scenario where growth will be disappointing , I think emerging markets are kind of vulnerable they also become the favorite investment destination by momentum players , and I think we had huge increase in stock prices a lot of markets have doubled in price between march and just now a couple of days ago and so a correction is possible , but having said that I would also argue that the worse the global economy is the more stocks could go up because we have all these central bankers who are nothing else than money printers " "they created first the NASDAQ bubble and then the housing bubble and now they want to create another bubble to bail them out and that's of course not a recipe for a healthy sustainable growth"
"Usually an economic and financial crisis leads to some fundamental changes. That is the purpose of a recession, of a depression, to clean the system," said Faber
"Let the derivatives players go bankrupt and the system is clean," "The total breakdown of the system is ahead of us and it will devastate the global economy."
"My view is that the Fed and the other central bankers will leave interest rates far too low and far too long," Marc Faber added.
