Worst Crash In Our Lifetime Coming – Jim Rogers

  • Worst Crash In Our Lifetime Coming – Jim Rogers
    by Mark O’Byrne, http://www.goldcore.com/us/
    Legendary investor Jim Rogers sat down with Business Insider CEO Henry Blodget on this week’s episode of “The Bottom Line.” Rogers predicts a market crash “later this year or next …. write it down.” Rogers say the crash will rival anything he has seen in his lifetime.

    Here is a transcript of the Business Insider video:
    Blodget: One of the things I’ve always admired about you as an investor is that you don’t talk about what should be. You figure out what is going to be and then you do that. So what is going to be with respect to the stock market? What’s going to happen?


    Rogers: 
    I learned very early in my investing careers: I better not invest in what I want. I better invest in what’s happening in the world. Otherwise I’ll be broke — dead broke. 
    Well, what’s going to happen is it’s going to continue. Some stocks in America are turning into a bubble. The bubble’s gonna come. Then it’s going to collapse, and you should be very worried. But, Henry, this is good for you. Because someone has to report it. So you have job security. You’re a lucky soul.

    Blodget: 
    Well, yeah, TV ratings do seem to go up during crashes, but then they completely disappear when everyone is obliterated, so no one is hoping for that. 
    So when is this going to happen?

    Rogers: 
    Later this year or next.
    Blodget: Later this year or next?
    Rogers: Yeah, yeah, yeah. Write it down.
    Blodget: And what will trigger it?
    Rogers: Well, it’s interesting because these things always start where we’re not looking. In 2007, Iceland went broke. People said, ‘Iceland? Is that a country? They have a market?’ And then Ireland went broke. And then Bear Stearns went broke. And Lehman Brothers went broke. They spiral like that.  Always happens where we’re not looking.
