Jim Rogers comes in at the 1:20 mark for a lengthy interview.

Here are some of Rogers' observations:

- Rogers thinks likely incoming Fed Chairman Janet Yellen is just more of the same: more money printing and no clue what they are doing.

- When asked to rate the performance of Ben Bernanke's time as Fed chair on a scale of one to 10, Rogers assigns a zero.

- Rogers thinks that the U.S. Federal Bank will eventually disappear because of the actions of Greenspan and Bernanke which cause more problems than not having a central bank.

- When asked who should be Fed chair, Rogers suggests that Ron Paul understands the problems but that there is zero chance he would be appointed.

Interestingly, in recent days Warren Buffett called Ben Bernanke a ".400" hitter.

Probably because little Jimmy has shot a hole in his foot with his "commodities forever" forecasts. Did Jimmy get rich on his investing or taking fees via 2 and 20?
