Jim Rogers On Illusionary Prosperity: ‘The Road’s Coming To An End’

Investor, author, and financial commentator Jim Rogers just appeared on the Yahoo! Finance show Market Pulse. The chairman of Rogers Holdings had plenty to discuss with Michael Santoli, Yahoo! Finance Senior Columnist. From their exchange that was published on the Yahoo! Finance website this afternoon:

SANTOLI: So we’re overdue for some kind of problems. Obviously we’ve been focused on problems that seem to be unfolding elsewhere in the world whether it’s emerging markets, commodities, currencies, things like that. So how bad is it going to be? People keep pointing to these prior instances whether it’s 2011 or 1998. How’s it look?
ROGERS: Mike, you work for Yahoo! Finance. You should know how bad it’s going to be for goodness sakes. It’s going to be wor- we had a problem in 2008 because of huge debt. The debt is much, much, much higher now everywhere in the world. The Federal Reserve’s balance sheet alone is over 600 percent bigger in just seven years. Mike the problem’s going to be much worse. You should watch Yahoo! Finance. I’m telling you, you should be worried, you should be prepared… We’ve got staggering debt. Huge amounts of money printing. We’re going to have to pay the price because politicians have kept pushing things down the road, kicking the can down the road as they put it- the road’s coming to an end.

The former investing partner of George Soros in the legendary Quantum Fund added later:

I don’t have any shares in the U.S. for instance. I’ve got some shorts in the U.S.- it’s near all-time highs. I don’t have many shares many places except some I bought 20 or 25 years ago. China I own shares. Russia I own shares. These are depressed markets. I like to buy things- agriculture- I like to buy things that are depressed because even if we have problems, at least they’re already down some. They can go down more, and they probably will, but that’s where I’m focusing.
