Jim Rogers : Dont sell your gold.

Jim Rogers : Well, Chris, I don’t pay attention to the mainline media. I don’t know what they’re doing. I don’t have a TV so I don’t watch TV. Anyway, I don’t truly pay too much attention to them. There are things going on in the world. It’s going to be very exciting.
I’m - I think we talked about it - I’m long commodities and currencies. I’m short emerging markets and American technology and European stocks. Other - there’s a big bowl forming in bonds. I’m not acting yet. There are some countries wildly - I’ll tell you the most exciting thing I know right now is Myanmar and North Korea.
They both are opening up now just like China did in 1978. I’ll tell you, if I could figure out a way Chris, to get to Myanmar or North Korea, I wouldn’t ever have to make an investment again as long as I live because they’re going to be so unbelievably exciting. The problem is American government in its wisdom has made it illegal for Americans to invest in positive changes.
So it’s complicated being an American citizen. We live in the land of the free. Unfortunately, if we weren’t so free then maybe we wouldn’t have all these controls and regulations and prohibitions on us. Other countries don’t have them like we do. Don’t sell your gold.  - in Goldseek Radio
