Jim Rogers : China will become the largest Economy in the world in the foreseeable future

Geoff: Now Jim, we’ve kind of been seeing how things have been developing in China as far as the Shanghai Gold Exchange. So the question is, do you believe that China will ultimately control the price of gold? If so, when do you estimate this becoming a reality?


Jim Rogers : Well probably, but China will become the largest economy in the world in the foreseeable future. It will become the most important country in the world in the foreseeable future. When that happens, they’re going to control the price of a lot of stuff, directly or indirectly. I don’t see them controlling the price of gold anytime soon, as big as they are and as important as they are, there’s just too much gold around the world for them to control it yet. But my children speak Mandarin. I moved to Asia so that my children would know Asia, and speak perfect Mandarin. China’s the future, whether we like it or not.- in Sprott Money

The Fed Will Panic at some point

HB: We seemed to have a preview of that a few weeks ago where we had a pretty sickening plunge for a few days, and then James Bullard came out and said, 'Hey, we'll do what we need to do.' And suddenly stocks took off again. So you're expecting a bigger version of that?
Jim Rogers : That's exactly right. Wait until it gets worse and it will, somewhere along the line. At which point, the Fed will panic. It's all they know how to do, Henry, so they will pump huge amounts of money in. It's going to go into shares, and that will cause the top. I have no idea when that will be. That's when I would sell short. By the way, if it happens that way, one should be long, and long big time. I doubt if I will. Either I'm too smart or not smart enough. What we need is a 26-year-old. The 26-year-old will think this is wonderful. She will think she is very smart. She will make a lot of money for a while, and then it will collapse. - via business insider

Jim Rogers Warning : The US Taxes are going to get worse



Geoff: So the next question kind of correlates with that question, and it’s kind of a second part to that. Can you suggest a future in which a person can buy goods and services directly with gold eagles and silver eagles without paying tax?

Jim Rogers : Not in the U.S., no. If anything, the tax will go up. No Geoffrey, the U.S. politicians are going to tax everything in sight, and I’m afraid the taxes are going to get worse. Geoffrey, the United States is the largest debtor nation in the history of the world. No debtor nation has ever, no nation has ever gotten like this, and the debts are going higher and higher and higher. That is a reason to own gold and silver, but it’s also a reason that they’re going to tax us as much as they can. - via Sprott Money interview

In the book "Money Masters of Our Time," Jim Rogers writes about that time "the most important thing in my life was work. I did not do anything until I had completed my work." To emphasize this professional ethic , it is good to remember that he did not made any holiday for ten years. In 1980, Jim Rogers has decided to "retire" at 37 years.
