In would encourage the editors to review his most recent tweets on discrimination around March 31 2015 one of which has already been removed for his tweets. https://twitter.com/PeterSchiff

A government empowered to ban people or business from discriminating is a government empowered to force people or business to discriminate! 131 retweets 61 favorites Reply Retweet131 Favorite61 More

I'm Jewish and I defend the right of any individual, including business owners/employers, to discriminate against me based on my religion. 133 retweets 145 favorites Reply Retweet133 Favorite145 More

The mark of a free society is its ability to tolerate intolerance. Even if discrimination is offensive the right to do so must be protected 89 retweets 70 favorites Reply Retweet89 Favorite70 More

If government can ban conduct that it deems "offensive" than it can also ban speech, writing, art, and even thought for the same reason. 163 retweets 97 favorites Reply Retweet163 Favorite97 More

No one has a right not to be discriminated against. This is a privilege bestowed on favored groups by politicians in exchange for votes.

Assessing Schiffs predictions[edit]

Excellent source: http://www.cnbc.com/2015/12/20/the-peter-meter-assessing-schiffs-predictions.html Alsee (talk) 13:46, 4 September 2016 (UTC)

Schiff's career background[edit]

Since when has there been any evidence that proves Schiff ever worked as an investment banker? There's no information that substantiates Schiff working as an investment banker. His background was first as a stockbroker and then a financial analyst. Now he owns and runs his investment houses as a full-time businessman. Backendgaming (talk) 21:34, 8 January 2017 (UTC)

Too officious[edit]

He is CEO and chief global strategist of Euro Pacific Capital Inc., a broker-dealer based in Westport, Connecticut. He is founder of Euro Pacific Canada Inc., a Canadian registered global brokerage firm headquartered in Toronto, with offices in Burlington, Ontario; Montreal; Vancouver; and Tokyo. He is also founder and chairman of Euro Pacific Bank Ltd., offshore bank based in St. Vincent and the Grenadines; founder, CEO, and chairman of Euro Pacific Asset Management, LLC., an asset management company founded in Newport Beach, currently relocated to San Juan, Puerto Rico, since 2013; and founder and chairman of SchiffGold, a precious metals dealer based in Manhattan.

This is more extraneous detail than a lead can bear. At least the bold needs to be trimmed.

If the material is important, it can be rehashed in a later section. — MaxEnt 00:40, 23 September 2017 (UTC)

Why does the Criticism section keep getting reverted?[edit]

I wrote a "Criticism" section to balance what is otherwise a free PR page for Peter Schiff, as follows:

Schiff has been the subject of criticism, in particular for his repeated claim that in foreseeing the stock market crash of 2008-2009, he "positioned his clients accordingly"

and citing the following page:

http://globaleconomicanalysis.blogspot.jp/2009/01/peter-schiff-was-wrong.html

This Criticism section has been reverted at least twice, with no reason given. Whoever sees fit to revert this should at least give a solid reason for doing so.
