Jim Rogers: Politicians' Green Light to ECB Sovereign Bond Purchases "Same Old Garbage"
Jim Rogers is interviewed on CNBC in London. Rogers dismisses recent developments in Europe where Germany's Chancellor Angela Merkel has agreed to some monetization of the debt via European Central Bank purchases of sovereign bonds from highly-indebted countries. This is not a game-changer and will make things worse because it will lead eventually to more debasement of the currency, high inflation and higher commodity costs. "These guys have been saying the same old garbage for a long time," he tells CNBC.
