Jim Rogers: Shortages of Raw Materials lead to Strife & Wars
Daily Bell: Are there going to be additional wars?
Jim Rogers: Oh, yeah. Throughout history there has always been war. There is no period in history where we didn't have wars of some sort. Politicians like to blame somebody and it's easier to blame foreigners, so as tensions rise people will blame foreigners more and more.
Also, I'm told throughout history when you have shortages of raw materials, that leads to strife and wars and we have shortages of raw materials developing which will be bigger and bigger. So we will have wars. - in Daily Bell interview 14 Oct 2012
