Appearing the Larry Kudlow's show, Jim Rogers
discusses a possible dollar resurrection, with Andy Busch, BMO Capital Markets. Jim Rogers
has been short the dollar due to continuous money printing which over the long and short term devalues the $USD. But, on several interviews, Jim Rogers
often refers to trading the dollar on a short term basis as a contrarian play and the possibility of a short squeeze. It appears he is long for the dollar for now as it is so low and there are so many bears, that he "expects it to rally for a while."
Rogers continues to disagree with the policies of Geitner and Bernanke stating that Geitner has been wrong for 15 years. On the other hand, if the dollar rallies, Jim Rogers
is staying away from Gold and commodities.
"If the world economy gets better, I want to own commodities because there are shortages developing. If the world economy does NOT get better, I want to own commodities because then the governments are going to print money."
