US is in worse shape than Europe

Jim Rogers : I wish I was that smart (to know which country will go down first ) you should wach RT TV and you wil figure out which country will go down first , I am not smart enough I know that there are lots of them , I sold short stocks in the US and in Europe and in Emerging Markets so which ever one goes first I hope I will save myself ,
It is more likely to be in Europe just because they are right there with a lot of attention on them right now , but as I said before the US is in worse shape , Us as a whole is the largest debtor nation in history , and we have a lot of independent states Illinois California New York to name a few which are in a very dire straits just like Greece and Portugal and Ireland , so all of us in the west have serious problems ....- in RT America

Who is Jim Rogers ?

James "Jim" Rogers was born in Oct. 19, 1942 and grew up in Demopolis, Alabama .Jim Rogers started trading the stock market with $600 in 1968.In 1973 he formed the Quantum Fund with the legendry investor George Soros before retiring, a multi millionaire at the age of 37. Rogers and Soros helped steer the fund to a miraculous 4,200% return over the 10 year span of the fund while the S&P 500 returned just 47%. They ran what is considered to be one of the first truly global macro hedge funds. . In 1964 he got his first job on Wall Street at Dominick & Dominick in the summer between high school and Yale University, that's how he got his first experience with stocks and bonds. He immediately fell in love with the job. After Oxford, he returned to the U.S. and joined the army in 1970 he returned to Wall Street, working again with Dominick & Dominick. That same year he joined Arnold S. Bleichroeder, where he met George Soros, and together founded the Quantum Fund. This has opened a new era of global macrotrading and inspired numerous imitations and spin-offs. In the book "Money Masters of Our Time," Jim Rogers writes about that time "the most important thing in my life was work. I did not do anything until I had completed my work." To emphasize this professional ethic , it is good to remember that he did not made any holiday for ten years. In 1980, Jim Rogers has decided to "retire" at 37 years. Since then he has spent much of his time traveling and supporting the causes of philanthropic and taking on many high profile roles in the media. However, he continues to be an active investor and media commentator
