Euro Pacific Capital CEO Peter Schiff in his daily video blog discusses the global market rally, the end of the recession, and the real economy.
The Dollar made a new low today for the move. It closed with a 78 handle. This is the lowest its been since September of last year. It’s the lowest, certainly, of this calendar year.

This is not the case at all.
I find this to be the case in my day to day discussions with friends and family. “The stock market is doing great,” is what IÂ hear everyone saying. And they assume the stock markets and the economy are one in the same. Readers of SHTF PlanÂ and web sites in our blog roll know better.
