Why Jim Rogers is bullish on North Korea

North Korea ruler Kim Jung with Dennis Rodman

I would like to invest in North Korea but I'm an American so its illegal. 

North Korea is where China was in 1980, where Myanmar was in 2010. Very exciting and dramatic changes are taking place but I am a citizen of the land of the free and we are not allowed to invest in North Korea.

North Korea has a great gene pool if you look at it historically over the past thousand years. Theres something about the Koreans, they are not dumb, unsuccessful people. The Russians are pouring in, the Chinese are pouring in. Its changing very quickly.

Jim Rogers on Interest Rates and central banks


Most central banks follow the market, and the market dictates what has to happen. In the US, interest rates have already started going up a bit, and they will continue to go higher, in my view. The US central bank will be forced to cut back its bond purchases and probably they will, and that will lead to higher interest rates.


At some point, we are going to have interest rates that will affect markets though that may not happen for a while. But when it happens, central banks will panic, the US central bank will panic and then they all will again start buying bonds in order to calm down the markets. Then again, interest rates will come down for while, and there will be bubble in the markets.

Money Printing and economic recovery


Vast amount of money has been pumped into Japan, America, Europe, and the UK. Whether the recovery will last or not I don't know. But these are all artificial money which has been pumped in to rest of the world.

Why Jim Rogers does not own a TV

I don't have a TV. I don't pay attention to other people. I have found in my life, if I get investment advice from someone else I nearly always lose money. I'm not quite sure why so I have learnt not to try.

Jim Rogers on Narendra Modi and changes that could happen

Narendra Modi having friendly chat with Obama 

So far, Modi [India Prime Minister] does not seem to have produced results, which we all expected him to do. He said a lot of wonderful things, but so far nothing has happened, other than a lot of public relations.

People are waiting to see when Modi is going to change its economic policy, or start opening up of India to outside world. The expectations are very high because Modi at some point of time has to come up with some concrete proper actions.

Jim Rogers: Sanctions have not hurt Russia

I don’t see that it has hurt Russia [sanctions on Russia]. Maybe there’s something I don’t know, but I don’t see that this has hurt Russia in any way at this point.
