Oil may stay down for a while, or even go further down and test the lows



Jim Rogers : Whenever you have a major crude collapse like the current one, there has to be a rebound. However, normally the prices test the bottom before rebounding. I am not sure if we have seen the bottom yet.

Normally, you have a big rally, and then somewhere along the line it peters out. Then you have another test of the bottom. I suspect we will do so this time too.

Owing to the collapse in oil prices, inflation everywhere is down. Oil may stay down for a while, or even go further down and test the lows.

Maybe prices will go up by a few more dollars. But by spring this year, we will probably see a new test of the bottom.

Jim Rogers: India has the worst bureaucracy in the world

Jim Rogers: India has the worst bureaucracy in the world. I really wish India had gotten rid of some of its bureaucratic tangle. I would really like the markets to determine what happens in India, or for that matter, in the world.

I expect sugar prices to be near their low at these prices. I expect prices will go higher. Things in India might be better if the government gets out of the sugar market.

Raghuram Rajan is one of the better central bank governors in the world. But I do not say the RBI is good. I am just saying that it is less bad than other central banks.

Will the RBI Governor cut more rates? I do not have a clue. I am sure it depends — at least partially — on political pressure. It is also going to depend on what happens with the Indian economy and with the coming budget.

I am optimistic that agricultural prices will continue to rise for some time to come.

If the Budget 2015 comes in with sound economics — with spending changes, tax reforms, subsidy cuts, maybe labour reforms — then the rupee may go higher and continue to be a strong currency.
