[Video] CNBC - Marc Faber Discusses Japan and QE8

Marc Faber was up to his normal bag of tricks this morning on CNBC, with Joe Kernen apparently never hearing of things such as QE5-6-7-infinity.  (Someone does not read blogs)  Marc talks up Japan, the Fed, and how Bernanke stands ready to QEinfinity anytime the S&P 500 drops by a significant amount.

"We may drop 10 to 15 percent. Then QE 2 will come, (then) QE 4, QE 5, QE 6, QE 7—whatever you want. The money printer will continue to print, that I'm sure," said the author of the Gloom, Boom and Doom Report. Later in the interview, he added, "Actually I made a mistake. I meant to say QE 18."

As for the situation with Japan specifically, he said the end result of rebuilding after the quake would be inflation and a positive for stocks, while Japanese Government Bonds, or JGBs as they are often called, would suffer.

"This huge selloff is an investment opportunity in Japanese equities, but if a meltdown occurs then all bets are off," he said.

"Until very recently the Feds have had very few critiques, very few people criticized the Fed's policies under Mr. Greenspan and Mr. Bernanke," Faber added. "Over the last few months, a lot of critical comments have come up about the Fed and its money-printing habit. The S&P drops 20 percent (and) all the critics will be silent and they will all applaud new money-printing."
