Jim Rogers on The Ruble Collapse







Russia's PM says emotions have been one of the main factors driving the rouble out of its comfort zone. It is now sliding a little after regaining some ground following Tuesday's shocking falls. Financial commentator Jim Rogers believes panic is a crucial factor driving the rouble down, but overall he's optimistic about Russia's plan to tackle the problem without strict capital control.

Jim Rogers on The Russian Ruble Crisis



Robert Williams: Is it fair to call what’s happening with the ruble a crisis at this point?

Jim Rogers: Well, I don’t quite see it as a crisis. They still have huge foreign currency reserves. This is helping their balance of trade, obviously. They still get paid for oil in dollars. And it’s certainly not – it’s not causing imports to go up in Russia with the currency collapsing. So I don’t see it as a crisis. They have many debts coming due – U.S. dollar debts, which I would suspect they can finance. But, again, I haven’t sat down and put pencil to paper to really determine whether it can be done or not. - in wallstreetdaily.com
