Jim Rogers - Borrow at Fixed Rates and Buy Farmland

January 19, 2013 | About:

The question posed to Jim Rogers is why people are willing to lend the United States money for 10 years at less than 2%. His observations on that and other issues include:

- Rogers conducts the interview from Des Moines, Iowa, where he is looking at farmland (which he has long been bullish on).

- He would urge you to borrow at fixed rates only in US dollars because rates are going higher over the next decade or two.

- Current interest rates are absurd.

- He thinks agriculture will be one of the best places to invest in the coming decades.

- These low rates are artificial because the Federal Reserve is buying bonds.

- He currently isn't buying gold or silver, he is holding what he owns and will buy more if it drops.
