I prefer areas with lower geopolitical risk

Jim Rogers : Well, the countries that have raw materials are obviously going to be a better place than ones that don’t. That is all other things being equal. But remember those words, “all other things being equal”. The Congo has huge amounts of raw materials. But I am not investing in the Congo. I don’t think it’s going to be a good place for my money. I prefer areas with lower geopolitical risk.Canada has, perhaps, the soundest currency in the world right now, and a strong economy. If you want to invest in North America, the best place to invest is Canada, whether it’s directly in the economy, the stock market or the currency. That’s the sort of place you want to be focusing on in times like these. - Jim Rogers interviewed by Peter Schiff
