When hedge fund titans collide: Jim Rogers, while agreeing there are isolated cases of bubbly real estate, is happy to take the other side of Jim Chanos' trade against China.

    Jim Chanos backs-up his view with extensive research and numbers. Jim Rogers backs up his opinion with condescending comments about Chanos.


    What's funny about Jim Rogers is that he claims to follow Austrian Economic school, yet he seems in absolute love with the Communist goverment run economy of China.


    I am pretty sure Chanos is right. Timing may be very tough though. Chinese economy may artificially expand several years before the "laws of nature" take effect.

    If food prices continue to rise it could be right around the corner.

    I agree, somewhat difficult follow his logic in some cases.


    It's quite clear, how Soros was the ultimate Mastermind behind Quantum-fund, not so much Jim "buy agriculture" Rogers.

    Reminds me of the face-off of Warren Buffett vs. the Feshbach Brothers over Wells Fargo in 1990. The bull(s) won that one.

    Rogers hasn't often been wrong, but merely early. God knows he was right about commodities over the past few years. His call on the developing world, and especially East Asia, looks to be right on track.
