Jim Rogers: Next Crisis Will Be Worse Than 2008
Jim Rogers, ceo of Rogers Holding, says that when the next crisis comes around, the United States will be in far worse shape than in 2008, according to an interview on CNBC with Maria Bartiromo. Rogers says that we need to cut the budget drastically.
Rogers calls Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke a "disaster," who has gotten nothing right since he came to Washington. "He doesn't understand finance. He doesn't understand currency. He doesn't understand the economy," Rogers says of Bernanke.
Bernanke only knows about printing money as a way to address problems, so he will revert to QE3, further weakening America's debt position, according to Rogers. He predicts the dollar is going to crash while the Chinese yuan will become a safe currency.
If gold and silver correct, Rogers recommends buying more. Rogers is shorting technology stocks.
