Notes On Latest Jim Rogers Videos

October 14, 2009

Jim Rogers conducted an interview with Yahoo Tech Ticker which I thought was rather interesting as it took place in the heart of NYC, something very few Wall Street commentators do.

Jim Rogers Surprised By Economy's Health

  • Thought things would be worse in New York , but the economy has been recovering
  • Major creditor nations in the world are in Asia , while all debitor nations are in the West
  • Not in favor of stimulus spending anywhere
  • If you are worried about a banking system, look at the banking system in the U,S and U.K
  • Everybody who rises to power has huge problem along the way (referring to China and forced lending)
Jim Rogers Commodities

  • Advises most individuals to buy a commodities index such as an ETF
  • Not very active in most commodity indexes carrying his name, Jim rogers simply licenses them
  • Don't be terrified of commodity futures
  • So much focus on gold because everyone knows about gold, not too many people know about lead and the other lesser known commodities despite outperforming gold
  • Supply/Demand situation is very favorable for commodities
Jim Rogers On Gold

  • Concerned about dollar's demise
  • Quite sure gold will hit $2,000/oz.
  • Dollar will lose status as world currency
  • With so much borrowing and money printing , America is going the wrong way
