Jimmy Rogers is a global financial luminary. He's called the market right so many times that even the Main Stream Media half listens when he speaks. They don't want to understand what he's saying, but they do listen. And now he's saying that gold may take a breather in 2012, that you need to be following your passion and you should be thinking about farming, not trading. The world is changing, has always been changing and always will be. The key is to get out ahead of the change and use it to help you find your calling.
