    How many “emergency” “secret” meetings do the central planners around the world need to have before the citizens of the respective countries begin to fully understand and take notice that something...

"You Should Be Very Worried, You Should Be Prepared" Warns Jim Rogers

Tyler Durden's picture


"[Central Banks] think they are smarter than the market," exclaims billionaire investor Jim Rogers, "they are not!"

Warning CNN in this brief but disturbing reality check that "we are all going to get hurt by a global recession," Rogers takes aim at the incompetence of the "academic and bureaucrats who don't know what they are doing," raging that "this is going to be a disaster in the end."

Rogers concludes:

"You Should Be Very Worried, You Should Be Prepared"

200 Seconds of awful truth...

And if you are not concerned enough, Rogers did an extended radio interview, explaining that the inevitable consequence of disastrous easy-money policy from central planners is war...


39:35 - Jim discusses inevitable consequences of disastrous easy-money policy from central planners is war.

40:00 - Jim discusses heightened xenophobia during difficult economic times and how it can lead to conflict.

40:57 - Jim discusses how the coexistence of a rising world power and a stagnant or in-decline world power leads to conflict.

42:26 - Jim discusses precious metals.

45:30 - Jim discusses a history of poor leadership from US Presidents will continue, money printing and currency debasement will continue, no matter who gets elected this year.
47:49 - Jim discusses coming sovereign debt crises, loss of confidence in government, and how it can lead to war.

48:35 - Jim says "read your history," politicians will continue to make things worse, capital controls will intensify, economic conditions will continue to deteriorate and war is likely.
52:05 - Jim says that by plot of pure circumstance, the USD will fall from its place as world's reserve currency. Dollar will destroy itself and a replacement will come along.

54:30 - Jim discusses potential bubble in the USD

I enjoyed watching Jimmy guest host with Mark Haines on Friday mornings back in the 90s.

I remember the day he announced he was buying oil stocks with both hands - oil was in the dumps...trading around $10/bbl.

His tune hasn't changed much, but he's a true entrepreneur and always entertaining.

Jim doesn't sound very healthy; shortness of breath, sort of burping at the end.

Extreme stress?

Okay, since everybody and his brother is pasting links, even if they got nothing to do with this story like WTFRLY, I'll also give it a shot. Completely ON topic though.

Maybe this is what's causing Jim's shortness of breath: a massive banking crisis brewing in his new hometown Singapore? http://davidstockmanscontracorner.com/the-banking-turmoil-spreads-massiv...

Jim Rogers is short of breath because he knows he's going to take a big hit and he doesn't know which way the hit is coming from...but he's got gold. He's got a lot of gold. Jim didn't make his bones being dumb about the direction of markets.

Yep, he's at that age where he will probably die in a hotel room with a pillow over his face and a "judge" named Cinderella will claim that it was a heart attack, disallowing an autopsy.

Shortness of breath, he inhaled his bowtie.


Now when he farts he sounds like a Fokker D VII just off idle.

if he farted out of his mouth, his bowtie would probably start spinning around. (that's how you can tell)

What is sad is that Jimmy's bet on ag is about implode in his face.

I predict $4 soy, $1 corn, $.50 wheat, and $0.25 oats before it is all over.

Jimmy is great but hyperdeflation fucks everyone up the ass.

...but that would mean just about every small farmer would be wiped out. Of course big AGbiz will get bail outs and then be able to control just about all the food supply. I'm pretty sure the plan calls for sodomy for all.

Depending on the cost of production or inventory in storage. There is a break even price for the seller below which they can't release product. If spot goes below that, essentially supply will simply evaporate. Price has to fund the whole chain of production to delivery, or else the whole chain falls apart.

The "Tunes" don't need to change if they are right. He's been right on oil and learned from hitory, obviously. He probably bought gold around the same time when it was under $300/oz.

Didn't he try out the phrase "We can fix it" at some point in his campaign?  Well, if he can't even fix his own campaign that doesn't say much about the guy.  He's a fucking stuffed shirt and it warms my heart that apparently some people are seeing that (or maybe they just don't want a Bush dynasty).  Whatever... he's done.
