I don’t know that Peter Schiff is right about everything he says (in fact, I believe his gold prediction never quite got where he said it was going), but I do know almost everything Ben Stein and Art Laffer said was wrong. Ben Stein in particular - what a douche bag. “You’re simply wrong, you’re simply wrong about that” he tells Peter in regards to the housing lending market. What an ass. I think I have to give him the biggest douche award that I have previously given to Chris Angel.
Just to add some insult to Mr. Stein, here is how his movie (Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed) did against Bill Maher’s Religulous (according to Box Office Mojo as of today’s date):
|Domestic Summary||Religulous||Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed|
|Opening % of Total||26.2%||38.5%|
|Close Date||December 18, 2008||October 19, 2008|
Ben’s movie came out first, played in twice as many theaters and made half as much money. Loser!
