An update from Jim Rogers

Jim Rogers 19 March 2010.JPG

He's considered to be one of the world's savviest investors. Jim Rogers, chairman, Rogers Holdings, talks to BNN and gives his opinions on the investment world.

The discussion kicks off with the topic of trade wars which Jim says is no good for anyone and that some time in the future the Chinese currency could become the world reserve currency, sorry Canada, the Loonie is thought to be too small.

On the subject of bubbles Jim sees both the Chinese coastal property and US Bonds as being in a bubble. As for gold prices his prediction is for gold prices to hit $2000/oz by the end of the decade but that is easily achievable by only a 6-7% rise per year.

On the matter of the Euro - Jim was in favour of letting Greece go broke then confidence would return to the Euro, however, the European Union will not let that happen. As we see it Greece is only one the PIIGS (Portugal, Ireland, Italy, Greece and Spain) with the UK rapidly coming into the frame. So if there is a bail out or financial support for Greece then the other troubled nations are sure to come banging on the door, time will tell.

For anyone with a $100k to invest Jim favours the agriculture sector as it is so depressed at the moment. He also comments on coal, natural gas and uranium.
