I have an old acquaintance named Sam who has a hell of a deal for you.

Sam is actually a pretty famous guy with a big reputation. Unfortunately he has been a bit down and out on his luck lately… but he’s trying to make a comeback. And Sam is prepared to float you a really great investment opportunity.

Here’s the deal he’s offering: you give Sam your hard-earned retirement savings. Sam will invest your funds, and pay you a rate of return.

Granted, the rate of return he’s promising doesn’t quite keep up with inflation. So you will be losing some money. But don’t dwell on that too much.

Jim-Rogers-2

- Jim Rogers Warns “Bernanke Has Set The Stage For The Fed’s Collapse” (ZeroHedge, Jan 4, 2014):

With Bernanke’s term due to expire in January, Jim Rogers warns Mineweb that the Fed-head will be remembered as “the guy who set the stage for the demise of the Central Bank in America. We’ve had three central banks in America. The first two disappeared. This one’s going to disappear too in the next decade.” With precious metals, bonds, and stock markets obsessing over Fed actions, Rogers says, in the next 10 years or so, “People will realise that these guys have led us down a terrible path,” and collapse is “not a possibility,” he adds, “it’s a probability.”

Via Mineweb,

100 years ago you could not have named the head of most central banks in the world,” Rogers told Mineweb. “Now they’re all rockstars.” Gold and equity markets have increasingly been locked in Fed-watch mode in 2013, obsessing over when or whether chairman Ben Bernanke would taper the bank’s vast bond buying scheme.

- Dent, Faber, Celente, Maloney, Rogers – What Do They Say Is Coming In 2014? (Economic Collapse, Dec 12, 2013):

Some of the most respected prognosticators in the financial world are warning that what is coming in 2014 and beyond is going to shake America to the core.  Many of the quotes that you are about to read are from individuals that actually predicted the subprime mortgage meltdown and the financial crisis of 2008 ahead of time.  So they have a track record of being right.  Does that guarantee that they will be right about what is coming in 2014?  Of course not.  In fact, as you will see below, not all of them agree about exactly what is coming next.  But without a doubt, all of their forecasts are quite ominous.  The following are quotes from Harry Dent, Marc Faber, Gerald Celente, Mike Maloney, Jim Rogers and nine other respected economic experts about what they believe is coming in 2014 and beyond…

- Jim Rogers: “Own Gold” Because “One Day, Markets Will Stop Playing This Game” (ZeroHedge, Nov 19, 2013):

Jim Rogers hope-driven wish is that the politicians were smart enough at some point to say (to the central bankers), “we’ve got to stop this, this is going to be bad.” He adds, on the incoming QEeen, “she’s not going to stop it, first of all she doesn’t believe in stopping it, she thinks printing money is good.” However, Rogers warns in this excellent interview with Birch Gold, “eventually the markets will just say, “We’re not going to play this game anymore”, and we’ll have a serious collapse.” The world is blinded by central bank liquidity, and as Rogers somewhat mockingly notes “if everybody says the sky is blue, I urge you to look out the window and see if it’s blue because I have found that most people won’t even bother to look out the window…” Rogers concludes, “everybody should own some precious metals as an insurance policy,” because as he ominously warns, when ‘it’ collapses, “there will be big change.

Transcript (via Birch Gold Group)

Rachel Mills, Birch Gold Group (BGG): This is Rachel Mills for Birch Gold, and I am very pleased to be joined today by Jim Rogers, legendary investor. Thank you so much Jim for joining me.

Jim Rogers: I am delighted to be here Rachel.

BGG: So today I wanted to talk a little about stock market highs and Quantitative Easing and inflation and a little bit of Federal Reserve and when is the taper is going to happen and currency wars. But there is one question that I don’t have to ask you, which you get asked a lot, I know, and that is what your secret to being so prescient in the marketplace?

“…if everybody says the sky is blue, I at least urge you to go and look out the window and see if it’s blue because I have found that most people won’t even bother to look out the window…”

JR: As far as I know, I’m not quite sure. I do know that I have learned over the years, always, when nearly everybody is thinking the same way that means somebody’s not thinking that means we got to start thinking about it and see if there’s not another way, another approach. Because if everybody says the sky is blue, I at least urge you to go and look out the window and see if it’s blue because I have found that most people won’t even bother to look out the window. If they see on the television or in the newspaper or something that everybody says the sky is blue, I at least urge them to look out the window. I find that most people don’t want to do their homework, that’s the first problem that many people have, is just doing simple homework.

“…no matter what we all know today, it’s not going to be true in 10 or 15 years…”

- Jim Rogers Blasts “This Is Going To End Badly… And The Rest Of The World Knows It” (ZeroHedge, Oct 15, 2013):

The only thing exceptional about the USA is “its the largest debtor nation in the history of the world” is how Jim Rogers begins this brief interview with RT and he doesnt back away from the rhetoric. The sad truth, he notes, is that the US “has been kicking the can down the road for years…” how do you think we got so much debt, he chides. “Every year that goes by we go deeper and deeper into debt,” adding, rather ominously, that it “will be solved one way or another.” They will kick the can once more; then next week, we will be told that the problem is fixed and compromise is here. However, Rogers warns, eventually the market is going to turn away; “this is going to end badly… and the rest of the world knows it.”

For some clarifying thought before an onslaught of headline hockey in US equity markets, Rogers comments are a must view to comprehend the game we are playing…

- Jim Rogers: “This Is Too Insane–And I’m Afraid We’re All Going To Suffer For The Rest Of This Decade” (Bull Market Thinking, June 26, 2013):

I was able to reconnect with Jim Rogers this morning out of Spain, legendary co-founder of the Quantum Fund with George Soros, author of Hot Commodities, and chairman of the private Beeland Holdings.

It was an especially powerful interview, as Jim spoke towards the relentless downward pressure on gold, the upward explosion in interest rates, central bank money printing, and how to protect yourself ahead of the disastrous times he sees coming.

When asked if we’re seeing forced liquidation leading the smash down in gold this morning, Jim said, “We certainly are. There are a lot of leveraged players who are now being forced to sell. Usually when you have this kind of forced liquidation, you’re getting closer to a bottom, maybe not the final bottom, but certainly close to a bottom. I even bought a little bit [today].”

With regard to the intense bearish news stories being published on gold, Jim suggested investors shouldn’t ”Pay [much] attention to other people. I pay attention to what’s going on…Obviously with gold collapsing I know about that—but I don’t listen to other people.”

FYI.


- Jim Rogers: We’re Wiping Out The Savings Class Globally, To Terrible Consequence (Peak Prosperity, March 9, 2013):

Jim Rogers decries the growing uncertainty and recklessness of global central planners as the world enters unchartered financial markets:

For the first time in recorded history, we have nearly every central bank printing money and trying to debase their currency. This has never happened before. How it’s going to work out, I don’t know. It just depends on which one goes down the most and first, and they take turns. When one says a currency is going down, the question is against what? because they are all trying to debase themselves. It’s a peculiar time in world history.

- 12 Gold Bugs Bring Christmas Cheer (Activist Post, Dec 22, 2012):

While the price of gold has languished in a trading range much of the year, leaving some investors scratching their heads, many have been buying – and in some cases, really loading up.

It’s a tad puzzling that gold hasn’t broken into new highs, despite enough catalysts to move a herd of stubborn mules. But that’s the hand we’re dealt right now. We can’t get up from the table until the game reaches its conclusion. Besides, I think the stall in prices is giving us one last window to buy before prices break permanently into higher levels for this cycle.

At least that’s how a number of prominent investors and institutions are viewing the price action right now. Here’s a sampling of this year’s “gold bugs” and what they’ve been doing about precious metals recently.

Jim Rogers, billionaire and cofounder of the Soros Quantum Fund, publicly stated last month that he plans to “sell federal debt and purchase more gold and silver.”

George Soros increased his investment in GLD by a whopping 49% last quarter, to 1.32 million shares. His stake is now worth over $221 million. Many investors don’t realize that he also placed call options on GDX worth $9 million. The most logical explanation is that he thinks gold equities are undervalued and that there’s big money to be made in them within a year.

Marc Faber mocks those claiming gold is in a bubble. “It’s nowhere close to that stage,” he says. And even though he’s already sitting on a huge gain, he won’t take any profits. Why? “I keep a picture of Mr. Bernanke in my toilet, and every time I think about selling my gold, I look at it and I know better!” Continue reading »

- Ron Paul On The “One-Party System” (ZeroHedge, Oct 12, 2012):

Ron ‘I’m playing the long-game’ Paul will not go quietly into the night – and rightly so, it would seem, given his truthiness. In a recent brief interview on CNBC’s Futures Now, he managed to diss Romney, smash the ‘belief’ in a ‘two-party’ system, and undermine any hope for economic change from the farce of an election. Summed up simply: “There is essentially no difference between one administration and another, no matter what the platform.”Starting by agreeing with Jim Rogers recent views that we discussed here, he refises to endorse Romney and then it gets interesting…

- Marc Faber & Jim Rogers On Our “Clueless, Ignorant, Dangerous” Leaders (ZeroHedge, Oct 4, 2012):

While the discussions between these two legends varied from Phat Phong nightlife to Dow 30,000, and from China bullishness to AAPL bearishness, it was the conversation about the actions of Bernanke, and more importantly our political leaders that summed up perfectly the dreadful reality in which we find ourselves. The punchline: “It is very dangerous to have ignorant people believing that they know something.”

Rogers is bullish China long-term but buying Chinese stocks only selectively

Faber sees under-the-surface weakness in US equities and while central banks could print us to Dow 30,000; gold and other commodities will be astronomical by then…

Faber is bearish AAPL, believes its a bubble – but too dangerous to short…

Both are uber-bearish central-bankers and politicians…

Marc Faber: “Both candidates are clueless and completely artificial…”

Jimmy Rogers: “It’s worse than clueless, because they think they know what they’re doing.. and so they are dangerous! If they were just clueless and looked out the window, we wouldn’t have a problem, but they think they have the solution – but their solutions are what’s making the situation worse…”

Marc Faber: “That is precisely the point. It is very dangerous to have ignorant people believing that they know something!”

Summed up perfectly, we believe.

- Rogers: “Volume Is Not Going To Come Back. We’ve Had A Great 30 Years. That’s Finished!”

Jim Rogers is hedging his gold (and silver) positions reflecting that this is normal, following such a tremendous run, and that this is good for the precious metal in the long-run. In his discussion with Maria Bartiromo this afternoon, he notes India’s anti-gold ‘protectionism’ (and its potential balance of payments issues) that are trying to force the hoarding into risky ‘productive’ assets (as others might say). The immutable commodity maven suggests JPMorgan (and its peers) could be behind the drops in the overall commodity complex as the uncertainty of their positions (and liquidation potential to raise cash as bank examiners begin their forensics) becomes more important. He holds the USD, which he hates; has a number of equity shorts; and is most fearful of banks – specifically admitting he is a serial seller of calls on JPMorgan. His advice, and perhaps Maria should look into it given their ratings recently, is to become a farmer; own farmland; and speculate on agriculture. On the dismal ‘ethical’ state of our leaders and management, the thoughtful Rogers opines, “You can read world history for decades. There are always people doing things wrong. We have not changed our human nature and we will continue to have scandals and problems” and in a follow-up to CNBC’s standard ‘money-on-the-sidelines’ argument he crushes the money-honey’s dreams: “Finance had a great 30 years. That’s finished. Now to advance, we have too many people, too many MBAs, too much leverage and too many governments that don’t like us”. A must-see rebuttal to the ‘normal’ CNBC hopium with more on China’s slowdown, a US recession, Europe and a Greek exit, QE3, and ‘tractors’.

- Jim Rogers’ Warning: Riots Coming To America (ETF Daily News, May 2, 2012):

Dominique de Kevelioc de Bailleul: Speaking with the Wall Street Journal on Friday, commodities trader Jim Rogers of Rogers Holdings said riots such as the ones witnessed in Greece and reported as widespread in China will hit the United States and again in Europe as the next leg down in the financial crisis takes shape (after the election, he speculates in previous interviews).

“I’m more worried about those kind of problems [rioting] in the U.S. and Europe; this is where social unrest is going to be worse,” Rogers told the Journal.  “I would suspect that, when economic conditions get worse here and get worse in Europe, we’re going to see . . . you’ve seen governments fail in Europe; you’ve seen countries fail in Europe. I suspect you’re going to see more of it [rioting], yes.

“We saw it in London; we’ve seen it in several countries in Europe in the last year or two.  Yes, I expect to see it here, too.  If you don’t, look out your window”

When asked about Bernanke’s credibility regarding his latest FOMC public statement, in which he said the Fed will be able to contain inflation, Rogers became noticeably irritated.

“Mr. Bernanke has zero credibility as far as I’m concerned.  The Federal Reserve has zero credibility,” Rogers said forcefully.   “Simon, go back at everything Mr. Bernanke has said in the last seven or eight years he’s been in Washington.  He’s never been right about anything.  The man has zero credibility for anyone who would take the time to look at his history.”

As far as further inflation down the road, Rogers stated inflation is already in the pipeline, and will manifest in higher commodities and consumer prices—of which, historically, have lagged money supply expansion by six months to one year.

did with Bull Market Thinking.

Silver Doctor has allowed me to reproduce the transcript of what they have on the page in regards to what Jim Willie said about MF Global.

If this is true then this is completely Explosive and the Comex and JP Morgan stole everyone’s money to avoid a default!  But don’t expect the government to hold them accountable, especially since the Judge assigned the trustee for MF Global that is a counsel for JP Morgan.

Portions of Jim Willie’s interview with Bull Market Thinking:

The YouTube videos of the interview are at the bottom.

We had a COMEX system failure in November.  COMEX was ready to default on gold and silver in November.  Rather than honor delivery demands in gold and silver- JP Morgan simply stole the money in the accounts that were going to stand for delivery.  They had their pockets picked while they were standing in line at the delivery window.  Notices of delivery were replaced at stolen accounts!

- ‘US Is Nearing Even Worse Financial Crisis: Jim Rogers (CNBC, June 8 2011):

The U.S. is approaching a financial crisis worse than 2008, Jim Rogers, chief executive, Rogers Holdings, warned CNBC Wednesday.

“The debts that are in this country are skyrocketing,” he said. “In the last three years the government has spent staggering amounts of money and the Federal Reserve is taking on staggering amounts of debt.

“When the problems arise next time…what are they going to do? They can’t quadruple the debt again. They cannot print that much more money. It’s gonna be worse the next time around.”

The well-known investor believes the government won’t shut down in August if agreement isn’t reached on raising the debt ceiling, but he did say “draconian cuts” are needed in taxes and spending, especially military spending.

“We’ve got troops in 150 countries around the world. They’re not doing us any good, they’re making enemies. They’re costing us a fortune,” he said.

Rogers said he is “not long anything in the U.S.” and short on American tech stocks. He owns Chinese stocks as well as commodities and would love the world price of silver and gold to come down so he could “pick up the phone and buy more.”

Rogers Interview on Commodities, Global Stocks, Feb. 28

“Saudi Arabia has been lying about the reserves for decades.

Saudi Arabia the last two times said they are going to increase production and they couldn’t increase production. Don’t fall for that.

The reason oil is going up is the world is running out of known reserves of oil.”

Feb. 28 (Bloomberg) — Jim Rogers, chairman of Rogers Holdings, talks about his investment strategy for global stocks and commodities. Gold advanced, approaching a record, as tensions in the Middle East boosted oil prices, increasing demand for precious metals as a protector of wealth and hedge against inflation. Rogers also discusses his strategy for the U.S. dollar. He speaks in Hong Kong with Rishaad Salamat on Bloomberg Television’s “On the Move Asia.”

The US government excludes food and energy from its worthless inflation data.

The US government’s inflation data is therefor pure deception and fraud.


Leading investor Jim Rogers has attacked the US government’s inflation data as a “sham” that is causing the central bank to massively understate price pressures.


Jim Rogers expects interest rates in the US to go much higher over the next few years Photo: Clare Kendall

Mr Rogers, who shot to fame after co-founding Quantum Fund with George Soros, argued the Federal Reserve uses information that relies too heavily on housing prices.

“I expect interest rates in the US to go much, much, much higher over the next few years,” he said, adding that he is betting against US Treasuries.

The core personal consumption expenditure index, which strips out food and energy costs, is the Fed’s preferred measure of inflation. This was flat in October for the second straight month.

“Everybody in this room knows prices are going up for everything,” Mr Rogers told the Reuters Summit.

The investor remains bullish on commodities given the debt crises facing many country across the world.

“If the world economy gets better, commodities are going to go up in price because there are shortages. If the world economy does not get better, you should own commodities, because [central banks] are going to print more money,” he said. “Real assets are the way to protect yourself.

Mr Rogers also predicted that the price of gold will rise eventually above $2,000 an ounce. The price of spot gold hit a record high of $1,430.95 an ounce before falling back to close on Tuesday at $1,409.35.
