Part 2: Forecasts negative US real interest rates Faber says stocks won’t reach new highs this year.
Part 3: On gold and China’s economic slowdown Faber predicts Asian stocks will underperform this year because of China’s inevitable economic slowdown and suggests accumulating gold and shifting more money to India and Japan.
