Jim Rogers: Biggest Financial Collapse in my Lifetime Is Overdue

 

The billionaire commodity guru Jim Rogers believes the next economic catastrophe is coming and when it arrives it will be the worst financial calamity the 74-year old investor has ever seen. “The financial markets are going to have the worst problems in my lifetime.” Jim joins us at Whiskey Politics and discusses China, Janet Yellen, why “Mr. Obama wasn’t a very smart guy,” his opinions about Donald Trump, and of course we ask Jim to suggest how we can protect ourselves.

    I’ve stopped listening to financial gurus some time ago, but this guy is always worth listening to. He focuses on the very basics, the large lumpy realities. Of course, I see global financial markets similarly.

    I followed Rogers since the early days of CNBC–mostly on commodities– and read his fascinating book about traveling the world on his motorcycle. He is always an interesting listen, although I think it’s fair to point out he’s often been a bit apocalyptic in his predictions.

    Besides the prospect of another financial crash because of high debt levels, Rogers did say he’s bullish on a lot of things. What I found particularly interesting is that he’s not apocalyptic on China, despite Dave Sussman’s attempt to elicit agreement from him that the country’s economic ascent is a “charade”. Rogers makes a fair point that a rising economic giant can weather all manner of political and economic turmoil.
