Learn how to sell short

Jim Rogers :.... I would also urge everyone to learn how to sell short. If you don't want to do that, at least learn about currencies. You don't want to keep all your money in cash in difficult times. A lot of people put all their money into Icelandic krona and thought they were fine. Of course, we know Iceland went bankrupt and the krona collapsed. So be sure you learn something about currencies, because keeping all your money in cash could be a disaster. For younger readers, I would suggest you work to learn foreign languages, preferably Chinese or at least an Asian language. I see finance as continuing to go into decline... It's going to be a very, very depressed area of the world economy for years to come. All those people thinking about getting an MBA – unless they're truly passionate about finance – should look at some of the other area, of the world economy where they're going to have much better outlooks. But even then – as I make clear in my book – they shouldn't go into something unless they really love it. - in Daily Crux
