Adam: This is fantastic. How many times have I wished I could ask Jim Rogers something, and here is my chance!
I’ve read two of Rogers’ books (the most recent trip around the world with his wife, Paige, and his first trip, solo), watch every youtube video of him that I can, and try to follow whatever it is he is doing.
I think I have a pretty good idea of where Mr. Rogers stands as far as any investments are concerned, or I can guess what he’ll say. So, rather than ask him about the markets or his predictions, I have always wanted to know this, and have never seen him answer it anywhere:
1) Jim, which books/authors have influenced you the most and why?
2) Your knowledge of history, including economic history, is remarkable. Which would be your top 3-5 book recommendations to someone desiring to gain an appreciation of economic history such as your own?
3) Which current economic writers/market followers do you follow and why, even if you do not necessarilly agree with them?
