Investor Jim Rogers Tells Fox Business Agriculture Is “Going to Be One of the Great Industries of Our Time”
Chairman and CEO of Rogers Holdings Jim Rogers spoke with FOX Business Network (FBN) about the United States deficit and the path the nation and individuals need to take in order to prosper. Rogers said that the U.S. economy will not recover until we “accept reality, stop spending money we don’t have, go down to a lower level, and start over.” He went on to say that particularly in such an uncertain economy, “you should invest in only what you know, otherwise keep your money in cash.” Excerpts from the interview are below: Read more...

Walter Schloss: The Essence of Value Investing
Here are some notes taken from the life of Walter Schloss, once an office roommate of Warren Buffett. He is still alive and kicking at 95, and is one of the investors who inspires me the most. He had several points in common with Philip Fisher and Philip Carret, some of his contemporary investing legends; they lived very long; invested since very young until late in life; and never looked for extreme fortune or fame. He also led a simple life and, until recent interviews, still invests his personal money. His life incarnates the essential substance of value investing. Read more...

It Never Rains In California – The Latest From Bill Gross
Ted Cruz recently suggested praying for rain in Texas, and apparently someone did a few weeks ago, producing a deluge resembling a modern day Noah’s Ark of sorts. California’s Gov. Jerry Brown, on the other hand, has taken a more secular approach. He believes that Mammon, not God, bears responsibility for the Golden State’s record drought and that I, we, all of us simple folk should cut back water usage by a minimum of 25%. Well it’s hard to argue with Governor Moonbeam especially when it comes to the environment, although if you ask me, his other idea of hundreds of miles of high speed rail at a minimum cost of $25 billion is off the rails and on the governor’s private moon. But I will do my part. As a free citizen, though, I have choices: replace the lawn with artificial grass, take fewer showers, jerry-rig the toilet bowl, or perhaps eat fewer almonds. I will choose a diet of fewer almonds. Growing almonds, it seems, consumes 10% of all the annual residential water supplied to 40 million thirsty folks in California, and 60% of that production is exported, so I suggest we fight the drought “there” as opposed to “here,” if you get my drift.

The 1982 Playbook
When the stock market exploded to the upside after March 10, 2009, I turned to my colleagues and said, "It's time to get out the 1982 playbook." The last deep recession with well-above 10% unemployment was in 1982, and stocks had suffered from numerous bear markets. Stocks took off in anticipation of an enduring economic recovery, and it paid to believe in its longevity and the positive long-duration effect it would have on stock prices. More...

The Warren Buffett & Charlie Munger Show Charlie Munger - The Warren Buffett & Charlie Munger Show
A friend told me that he doesn’t go to the Berkshire Hathaway annual meeting — or what is also known as the Warren Buffett (Trades, Portfolio) & Charlie Munger (Trades, Portfolio) Show — because it has turned into a cult over the years. (He is also frustrated with what he sees as Buffett’s hypocrisy on issues of taxes and corporate governance.) Let me make it clear that the Warren & Charlie Show is not just a cult; it is a cult on steroids. Forty thousand people come from all over the world for three days to a place most cannot find on the map — it has got to be a cult. More...
