Author, financial commentator, and 2010 GOP candidate for U.S. Senate in Connecticut Peter Schiff is confirmed as the second keynote speaker at the Republican Liberty Caucus National Convention Banquet Dinner (along with former New Mexico Governor Gary Johnson). In 2006, Schiff correctly predicted the forthcoming crisis in the financial sector — long before most economists or financial commentators.
His father Irwin Schiff is a former Libertarian Party Presidential candidate who is well-known for his protests against the federal income tax. Schiff is CEO and chief global strategist of Euro Pacific Capital Inc., a broker-dealer based in Westport, Connecticut and CEO of Euro Pacific Precious Metals, LLC, a gold and silver dealer based in New York City.
Peter Schiff was an economic adviser to Ron Paul’s 2008 presidential campaign. In the Republican primary for U.S. Senate in Connecticut, held in August of last year, Mr. Schiff received 23 percent of the vote while facing former Congressman Rob Simmons and WWE CEO Linda McMahon.
Peter Schiff is the author of five books, including “Crash Proof 2.0″, which appeared on both the New York Times and Wall Street Journal best sellers lists. He frequently appears as a guest on CNBC, Fox News, and Bloomberg Television and is often quoted in major financial publications and is a frequent guest on internet radio as well as the host of The Peter Schiff Show.
The Republican Liberty Caucus National Convention will take place on Saturday, February 12 at the Hilton Arlington (Ballston) in Arlington, Virginia. Registration will close very soon, so please register today!
