Marc Faber: Relax! Stocks Won't Collpase

Marc Faber is interviewed by CNN on the 20th of January 2012.

First, they discuss he views that US bonds should be rated Junk, with the debt increasing from 1 trillion dollars in 1990 to 5 trillion dollars in 2000 to now over 15 trillion dollars and if we include unfunded liabilities the number would be much higher (something like 100 trillion dollars).

Now, the debt can be serviced because of low interest rates, but if those would be to increase, it would become much more problematic.

Marc Faber also explained that everybody should relax, equities won't collpase because there isa stron (technical) support at 1100 on the S&P 500, and if the S&P 500 drops 200 points, the federal reserve will start QE3.

Finally, he said that Asian banks (in Thailand and Singapore) are a much safer place than western banks for deposit and that contrary to popular beliefs, emerging economies do no rely so much on the west to sustain themselves.
