Jim Rogers provides some insights into his forecasts and investment strategy, including:
Social unrest, civil unrest everywhere, including the United States. We’re in perilous times. the economy in the world is going to be bad for more than 2 or 3 years. It always has lead to problems. So, be prepared.
Some parts of China are booming and will continue to boom no matter what. things like water treatment and agriculture have to boom. China has a stupendous water problem. India has a worse water problem than China.
The IMF is trying to sell its gold. If the IMF sells their gold, then that’s going to drive the price of gold down, a lot.Â Buy as much as you can if this happens.
Jim Rogers suspects he’ll make more money with silver than gold.
Some concerns exist around the Chinese banks lending money domestically which is being put into the Chinese stock markets, possibly pumping prices.
China has been strategically purchasing hard asset oil producers to protect future supply lines. This may be detrimental to US Treasury bonds, as China is now investing their reserves elsewhere.
Oil reserves worldwide declining year over year. This indicates long-term growth potential.
British Pounds Sterling may trade 1.2 to 1 to the US dollar, and potentially less than 1 to 1 over the next few years.
The Euro may also get hit near-term, as a result of issues in Eastern Europe and possible default.
