Liars: Bernanke and the BLS

Marc Faber: Bernanke Is a Liar

Investor Marc Faber talks with CNBC about the false economic recovery, Egypt, emerging economies, and inflation.

Faber believes the global economy may be okay for the next six months. “We have to realize that it’s an artificial recovery driven by ultra-expansionary monetary policies and also ultra-expansionary fiscal policies,” he comments. Faber predicts that deficits will lead to renewed problems down the road.

“The annual cost of living increases are more than 5% today and the Bureau of Labor Statistics is continuously lying about the inflation rate, including Mr. Bernanke. He’s a liar. Inflation is much higher than what they publish.”

Faber says the true cost of living increase for most US households is 5-8%, and just below that in Western Europe.
