Jim Rogers : Canada a Safe Place to store Your Assets




Geoff: So again, back to the other question then, would Canada be a place that you would think would be a safe place to store your assets? Particularly precious metals in this sense?

Jim Rogers : Yes, I would put Canada on a list. Again, Canada has shown great resistance to the U.S. many times in history. I know Europeans who won’t keep their money or their assets in the U.S., they’ll only keep it in Canada, their North American assets, and that’s because during the Second World War, the U.S. confiscated everybody’s assets, including our allies. The Canadians did not confiscate anybody’s assets, including the enemies. So Canada has a long history of being much more neutral, if you will, about peoples’ money and assets. It’s certainly better than the U.S., that’s for sure. - via Sprott Money Ask The Expert  – (March 2015)
