Stanley Druckenmiller believes the overly easy monetary policies by global central banks will have disastrous consequences.
"The way you create deflation is you create an asset bubble. If I was 'Darth Vader' of the financial world and decided I'm going to do this nasty thing and create deflation, I would do exactly what the central banks are doing now," he told CNBC's Kelly Evans in an exclusive interview airing Tuesday on "Closing Bell. "
"Misallocate resources [with low interest rates], create an asset bubble and then deal with the consequences down the road," he said.
The investor noted how this boom-and-bust cycle has happened time and time again.
"Deflation just doesn't appear out of nowhere and it doesn't happen because you are near the zero bound. Every serious deflation I've looked at is preceded by an asset bubble and then it bursts," he said. "Think about the '20s, a big asset bubble that burst, you have the Depression. Think about Japan. Asset bubble in the '80s. It burst. You have the consequences follow. Think about 2008, 2009."
"If they had moved earlier and more aggressively in the early 2000s, we would have had a recession in '08 and '09, but not a financial crisis," he said.
The investor believes the Fed should raise rates and normalize monetary policy as soon as possible.
"The longer this goes on, the worse it's going to be," he added. "The sooner they can stop what's going on ... the better."
