Unconcerned that China and India are tightening monetary policy, Jim Rogers sees commodities as a win/win investment. “If the world economy gets better, commodities are going to make a fortune. If the world economy does not get better, commodities are the place to be because they are going to print more money."

    Sort of has a good point there. Seems to me that that there is going to be a lot of money printing regardless.

    We have 5T of government refinancing over the next few years. Who do you think is going to buy it? The Fed, of course. Dollar-denominated commodities have to rise.

    Or, commodity price increases leads to inflation leads to crushed demand leads to crushed commodity prices.

     

    Like 2007-2008's oil market. Maybe he's losing money since oil's gone to $85 and it looks like it's going lower, gold down to $1,320 with no sign of rebound with India's seasonal purchasing over, and no hope in other commodities since the pool investing in them is small.

     

    Certainly some allocation to the commodity sector is advisable, but "make a fortune"? Too much risk for me....
