Peter Schiff at Occupy Wall Street (OWS): Uncut, Unfiltered, Unleashed!

Back by popular demand, it's Peter Schiff at Occupy Wall Street. And this time, he's uncut, unfiltered, and unleashed!

Last week, released an 18-minute video of investment guru, radio show host, and unflappable defender of capitalism Peter Schiff as he spent three hours among the Occupy Wall Street protesters in Manhattan's Zuccotti Park. Standing next to a sign reading "I Am The 1%, Let's Talk," Schiff debated, argued, and occasionally found common ground with the Occupiers.

In response to the overwhelming demand for more Schiff at OWS, we're happy to release all the audible footage we've got - almost two hours worth. Beyond his ability to answer all questions, the most amazing thing is how Schiff wins the hearts and minds of many Occupy diehards by explaining the differences between cronyism and capitalism, the need for sound money, and why the government can't be trusted to regulate the very banks it bailed out.

About 1 hour, 45 minutes. Go to for downloadable versions of our videos and subscribe to's YouTube channel for automatic notification when new material goes live online.
