Jim Rogers : ......The United States is now the largest debtor nation , not in the world , in the history of the world...no country has ever run up so much debt as we have in the US , this is not just a problem for our children and grand children judge , this is a problem for you for me and our parents , you know this is a problem that is hitting all of us in the face right now , those guys in Washington just worry about the next election , they worry to make sure they'll stick around , they do not care about you , they do not care about me , they care about getting their next pay check and not whether the country survives ....China too has a central bank , few countries nowadays do not have one , they have the largest foreign currency reserve in the world , they have an inflation too , one of the reasons is that so much money have come into the country in recent years ....
Silver will do a lot better than Gold because the IMF is trying to sell its gold ...silver and agriculture products will do better , but I am a gold buyer in any case " "...The largest creditors in the world are China, Korea, Japan, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Singapore – this is where the assets are and the debts are in the West. Those imbalances have to be resolved. They frequently lead to more currency turmoil. We’ll see more inflation, we’ll see more governments fall. We just saw Tunisia fall – more are coming because the world is going to continue to have these problems, and especially inflation that is going to cause more social unrest.”
"Inflation will continue to get worse , The government is printing a huge amount of money..."
"I am worried about the currency I am worried about the dollar I am worried about the world ...I put my money in commodities ..Gold zinc silver cotton ...etc..."
