Exclusive Interview With Jim Rogers – Part I

Talk to the average Joe on the street and he’ll tell you the world is coming undone…

And he’s right.

There’s widespread social unrest… rampant institutional corruption… record numbers of unemployed… pandemic violence and terrorism… and historic levels of global debt that can never be repaid.

If stock markets were not at nominal all-time highs, everyone would believe that events are spiraling out of control.

Yet even with stocks at highs, people know there’s something terribly wrong… and they can’t seem to put their finger on why it’s happening and what it all means.

So I traveled to Singapore recently for an important conversation with someone who can: legendary investor and author Jim Rogers.

The Great Global Unraveling

Rogers is one of the world’s most successful investors…

After studying at Yale and Oxford, he cut his teeth on Wall Street before starting the Quantum Fund with George Soros in 1973.

Quantum became one of the best-performing hedge funds in history.

From 1970 to 1980, the fund gained 4,200%, while the S&P advanced about 47%.

That’s enough to turn a small retirement account of $30,000 into almost $1.3 million… in just one decade.

Needless to say, the fund also made Rogers rich… rich enough to retire in 1980.

Since then, he’s traveled the world and written a host of bestselling books, while also becoming one of the world’s most sought after experts on the global economy, markets and Asia.

Rogers has seen it all. And his perspective on history and global finance is unmatched.

That’s why I ventured to see him to get his take on the great global unraveling taking place right before our eyes…

Look, the system is broken. The masses are starting to revolt. And the Bubble Finance era pursued for decades by inept central bankers has maxed out.

In short, the end game is now plausible. And the current global chaos we’re seeing could just be the beginning.

How bad can things get?

Rogers believes it will be unlike anything we’ve seen in our lifetime…

He shared his thoughts during a 30-minute exclusive interview. We’ve broken down this conversation into a three-part series.

We’re publishing them this week in Covel Uncensored.
