This from the same guy that says “China’s Advance is all but unstoppable” and “oil can only go higher.” Meanwhile the SSI is down 70% in the last year as is oil from it’s peak. I agree the US will be down in 2009—as will everyone else but not cause of JR.

Of course the US will decline in 2009: we have a gay, illegal alien, Muslim commie from Indonesia for president.

Jim Rogers is a pessimist, always has been. He is a co-investor with George Soros, and both are heavily invested in hedge funds that only make money when the economy tanks.

He is one of those people who talk the economy down because that is what makes him wealthy!

Ah,

“He is one of those people who talk the economy down because that is what makes him wealthy!”

Both men donated mucho bucks to Obama, Clinton, and McCain.

I believe it wouldn’t have mattered who won the election - all the candidates were bought and paid for ahead of time. (Soros is a big donor to McCain’s “Reform Institute”.)

Gentlemen, Ladies ... Please check prejudices at the door.

I don’t know anything about Jim Rogers, but what he says makes sense.

Jim Rogers

"..James Beeland Rogers, Jr. (born October 19, 1942) is an American investor and financial commentator. He is co-founder, along with George Soros, of the Quantum Fund, and is a college professor, author, world traveler, economic commentator, and creator of the Rogers International Commodities Index (RICI).....

In December 2007, Rogers sold his mansion in New York City for about 16 million USD and moved to Singapore. This is due mainly in his belief that this is a ground-breaking time for investment potential in Asian markets. Rogers' first daughter is now being tutored in Mandarin to prepare her for the future, he says. "Moving to Asia now is like moving to New York City in 1907," he said. Also, he is quoted to say: "If you were smart in 1807 you moved to London, if you were smart in 1907 you moved to New York City, and if you are smart in 2007 you move to Asia.".."

"WHO is Jim Rogers?"  A guy who's been bearish on the market since it set a record high of 1,200 in 1983.  He's been saying it'll tank ever since.

I’m not a close follower of Jim Rogers, but the fact that he is a partner with Soros doesn’t mean he doesn’t know what he’s doing. In fact, his closeness with the guy in charge lends more credence to his financial advice.

He’s not alone in selling out of dollars and going Asian and into commodities. Peter Schiff, chief economic advisor to Ron Paul is with him in these predictions. If you’ve followed our economy this year, you’d know that Ron Paul has been 98% correct. Politics aside, Rogers, Schiff, and Paul have been pretty close to right this year.

I don’t know if what he says makes sense or not.

ButI read two articles today saying that economy will turn around in the second quarter of 2009.

It’s already being set up by the media.

Hunky Dory Day is on the way!

This globalist swine has no allegiance to his own country; I’d rather spend a depression in the USA than in any stinking Asian hell hole.

The fact of the matter is that the currency is being rapidly debased. Bernanke/Paulson are creating trillions of dollars out of think air. And bailing out everyone in the process. We are rapidly becoming a socialist nation, where the means of production are owned entirely by the government. The only consolation if there is one, is that we screwing the entire world in the process. I would love to see the look on the Chicom’s faces when they bring their t-bills to the Fed and try to cash them in and then they are paid in worthless dollars. And then they bring their euros to Germany and try to cash them in and are given worthless dollars.

There will be a complete repudiation of all debt in this country, otherwise known as a super jubilee. The only thing worth being invested in is precious metals. But no doubt, Obama will try to pull an FDR and confiscate all. But now is different than 1934.

Don’t believe what I am saying at your own peril.

I would add that Jim Rogers seems to view himself as a citizen of the nation of personal wealth, not of America. He could care less whether America does well or ill just as long as his personal wealth continues to grow.

Then, it's perfectly acceptable for me to tell him to get outta town since I live on the same continent. ;-)

Do it immediately. I have no idea when it will happen, only that it will. I think it will actually be precipitated by the collapse of the euro. While I always thought US banks were the most creative and inventive when it came to losing money, ie subprime mortgages, cdo’s, cmo’s, credit default swaps, etc, the european banks have outdone us. They have loaned trillions of dollars to developing third world countries in Africa, South America and Asia. Rather than taking a few years to tank like here in the states, their debt could all become worthless in a matter of weeks. Then look for a bump up for the dollar and then the realization that fiat money is a its heart worthless. That will be the end. I don’t believe that any country will ever trust paper money again. But that’s my opinion.

Dude, I predicted this thirty years ago. The only thing that stopped it from happening then was Paul Volker and interest rates of 20% or more. This temporarily killed inflation and introduced a measure of price stability. I predicted the real estate collapse in February of 2006. Know why, I was in Las Vegas and there was a on the back of every taxi in town, “Own a 3 bedroom-2bath town house, only 693 per month. No money down! I have been a credit pro since the 1980’s. I have studied previous inflationary and deflationary depressions in exhaustive detail. When you can buy a house, car, vacation, etc., on credit, there’s a problem. When the industrial base of our country declines where we no longer produce, but only consume, there’s a problem. When the Chicoms are holding 2 trillion of our debt and shaking their heads at how they go there, there’s a problem. When there are more malls in the country than factories, there’s a problem. When twenty percent of our economy is a bunch of idiots on Wall Street who think they’ve discovered how to eliminate the business cycle, there’s a problem. When our population can’t tell the difference between debt and equity, there’s a problem.

Enough said, please explain to me why you believe that world will keep on accepting dollars as a measure of value. Cause I can’t figure it out.
