History has taught Jim Rogers how to invest

I'v been around long enough to and I've read enough to know history is a fabulous teacher about most sectors of the world of anything. 

So I know that this has all happened before, I see how it works. I see how it has worked, and its going to work that way in the future. 

I assure you human beings are still the same, we still get panicked when things go bad, we still get hysterical when things are going right, its all happened before.

US tax laws harsh on expats

I know three or four Americans who are basically being forced to give up citizenship. If you make simple mistakes it could cost you—it could be a criminal offense, or at least a very financially onerous one.

My filing requirements and possible penalties are very much different [to Americans living in USA]. It is treating Americans who live abroad differently—you would think it is some kind of discrimination.

Wallstreet and London has changed dramatically since the 1960's

Historically we have had long periods when the Financial types were in type, followed by long periods where people who produced real goods were in charge. Then the financial types come back. 

When I went to Wall street and when I was in Oxford in the 1960's. It was a backwater, New York Stock Exchange who cares, big day in NYSE was 3 million shares. Now that's not even a trade, we do that 3 million shares before breakfast. It really was a backwater and nobody wanted to go to Wall Street or the city of London. 

When I was in Oxford my professors used to say whats wrong with you, nobody cares about the city of London, its not significant even in the UK economy, why are you so interested in London. Now of course every kid in Oxford wants to start a hedge-fund in their dorm room or whatever. 

So its all changed dramatically, 50's and 60's and 70's it was a waste land and along came the long bull market and everyone wanted to go into Wall Street. 

Now more and more of them are now trying to go into technology because many people are starting to understand the financial community has got problems and my view its a terrible place to go unless you really love it.

Russia and Asia trade increasing

The Russians are now pushing more towards Asia, partly out of necessity, and so you will certainly see [more economic trade between Russia and Asia]. 

I know that Moscow was putting huge amounts of money to the Far East, I know that you’ve built a railroad all the way into North Korea. I know Russia is putting a push towards Asia, and obviously, if there are opportunities for Asians, they’re going to take advantage of it.
