Last week, I had an exclusive talk with legendary investor Jim Rogers. Not only did Jim Rogers predict several recessions and stock market crashes correctly, he also recommended everyone to invest in gold in 1999, just before embarking upon one of his trips around the world that eventually got him into the Guinness Book of World Records. Later, he would repeat his advice in his book “Hot Commodities: How The Next Bull Market in Commodities Can”, which was published in 2004, when the gold price was still near $400/ounce. This time, Jim Rogers sat down with me to share yet again some of his brilliant insights to investors.
