Jim Rogers on the economy, inflation, the dollar, etc..

Jim Rogers is a very interesting guy. A self-made man, he grew fantastically wealthy (alongside George Soros) as a partner in the Quantum Fund. He retired before the age of 40 & has since travelled twice around the world--once by motorcycle & once by car. A few years ago he began warning of a severe economic correction, began shorting financial stocks & the dollar & investing heavily in commodities. Ultimately he became so bearish on the USA that he "put his money where his mouth was" & moved to Singapore in order to be closer to China, which he believes owns the next century.

 Below is a collection of blogs, articles, & interviews with Jim going back about three years. If you're interested in reading them, I suggest doing so in chronological order. To do so, scroll down to the bottom of the page & begin reading from there. Interesting stuff indeed!

Re: Jim Rogers on the economy, inflation, the dollar, etc..

Jim made a once of his life time mistake by looking at China...."Owns the next century". What a joke!!

I found this English phrase:

"Out of the frying pan into the fire"

China has more crisis than any other nations, not only economic problems alone. Before Janaury, there will be 2 point.7

million people out of job just in Canton provence alone He forgot those lead toys and funitures and now the poinson dairy products which indicated the lost of moral and ethics in the society (worse than other places). An animal state will not prosper . (It is the Commies' fault.) 

 I'vd better to stay in the "frying pan".

Re: Jim Rogers on the economy, inflation, the dollar, etc..

Do you have a point?

Is morality the basis of your argument?

Where economic growth is concerned that is a losing argument, assuming we (US) do not change our ways anytime soon.

The point is that Communism does not have as much to do with China's growth as does OUR insatiable need to consume. As long as we want to buy cheap and unnecessary stuff, China will prosper.  When we're ready to buy pricier and unnecessary stuff, we can make it here.  When we're ready to "just say no" to unnecessary stuff, then we've turned a small corner and can talk.  Until then, any slowdown in China is a small event.

Don't worry, you can wash down that  'damn commie poisoned milk and egg breakfast' with a good ol' pure capitalistic Radium Water Cure!

(Before someone goes crazy, do note that the Times article is from 1932...)
