2013 is definitely going to be a very bad year in the U.S. and in the world

Jim Rogers : You know 2013 if we last, if we make it to 2013, 2013 is going to be worse. There´s an election in America in 2012. The government is going to extend as much money as it can to win the election, and the people who get that money are going to be better off because there´s a government who throws billions of dollars out into the economy. Somebody´s got to get that money. But those people and their friends are going to be better off. But the overall situation continues to get worse because the debt goes higher and higher and higher, and the rest of us ultimately are going to be worse off. And certainly by 2013 when all of that extra spending for the election stops, 2013 is definitely going to be a very bad year in the U.S. and in the world.- in El Economista

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.
