Read My Interview With the Man Who Predicted the Recession, Housing Crash
Way back in 2006, investment manager and hardcore free-marketeer Peter Schiff was calling for a big recession and a housing crash. Now, he's set his sights on Capitol Hill: He's running for Senate, hoping to unseat banking committee Chairman Chris Dodd (D-Conn.).
I interviewed Schiff in the Sunday Outlook section of The Washington Post, where he talked about his campaign, how he saw the bubble coming and what he's willing to spend to beat Dodd.

Also, Schiff's legions of Internet fans have created video mashups of his predictions and posted them on YouTube. Click here to see one of them. (And also to see what a lousy economic forecaster funnyman Ben Stein turns out to be.)
