In an interview with Bloomberg from this morning, Rogers said:
“We’re going to have a currency crisis, probably this fall or the fall of 2010. It’s been building up for a long time. We’ve had a huge rally in the dollar, an artificial rally in the dollar, so it’s time for a currency crisis.”
Jim reiterated that the place to be invested is in commodities, particularly agriculture:
“You’re going to have serious food shortages in the next 3-5 years – prices are going to go through the roof.”
