Why Jim Rogers is shorting stocks and favoring commodities

 EmailPrint This Post Print This Post

Widely-followed investor Jim Rogers discusses his outlook for the economy, stocks and commodities. He said: “I’m not sure I’m optimistic about 2012 at all, and I’m certainly not optimistic about 2013, but if I were buying anything it would certainly be agriculture commodities going forward. We have huge shortages developing of everything, including shortages of farmers. So, agriculture is going to be a great place for the next 10, 20 years.”

Rogers was also recently interviewed by BBC Radio. The soundtrack is here and the full transcript here (hat tip: Global Investor Blog).

For those readers interested in the Rogers International Commodity Index® (“RICI®”) and its energy, metals and agriculture sub-indices, the details are here.
