Jim Rogers: The world needs all the raw material they can get

James West:           So for example I’m a shareholder in a phosphate company that’s going into production in Brazil very soon – DuSolo Fertilizers – is that the kind of thing where an investor could benefit by exposure to the fertilizer business in Brazil, where consumption is growing?
Jim Rogers:             Yes, yes. That’s exactly what I’m talking about. Now I have no idea whether your company is competent, if they know what they’re doing or anything else. But if they do, and if they do have a good deposit, and they are low-cost producers, yes! They’ll do extremely well, there’s no question about that.
There are people who will tell you that some of the basic supplies for fertilizer are in decline, and so the world needs all the raw material they can get.
James West:           Brazil is in particular number three, and number one, and number two in so many agricultural exports, and I know that they import, on average, about 65 percent of their fertilizers, so do you think there’s an advantage for investors who are investing in the countries where they are consuming the fertilizers?
Jim Rogers:             Well of course. If you can produce it where it’s consumed, you have many, many advantages. All other things being equal. I mean, if you’re incompetent and don’t know how to run a mine, well then it won’t matter. It might be cheaper to put it on a boat somewhere and send it a few thousand miles. It depends on who’s doing what and the quality of the reserves, etc. But everything else being equal – yes. If they can produce and if they can produce at a competitive price, it is certainly a lot better to have the production right there in the country. And Brazil is going to continue to be an agricultural country.
