Daily Bell: What has been your position on gold and silver? Do you expect the purchasing power of either or both to go higher?
Marc Faber: Well I basically focus more on gold than silver, although I am on the board of a company, Sprott Inc., that is identified with a very bullish view of silver. I prefer gold. My view is, yes, I have been positive for gold for the past 10 or 12 years and I could make a case that gold today is cheaper than it was in 1999 when it was at $252. Cheaper in the sense that if I compare gold to international reserves or to the increase in the credit markets in the world, I don't think it's expensive. And yes, I think it will go higher or, expressed differently, that paper currencies will go lower against the value of gold. But this will be an irregular process, and along with this move into US Treasuries and away from risky assets, I wouldn't be surprised if the price of gold went down $200. It's not necessarily a prediction, it just wouldn't surprise me.
