Investment Guru - Jim Rogers

Investment Guru - Jim Rogers, is an American Commodities Investor and Author and a free market capitalist.  

Jim Rogers has said that if he were to be labeled, the Austrian School of economics best supports his views.

In an Interview conducted with Jim Rogers, in 2009, he was asked "Where should people put their money?"

He replied...

     "Invest only in the things you know something about.  The mistake most people make is that they listen to hot tips, or act on something they read in a magazine."

     "Most people know a lot about something, so they should just stick to what they know and buy an investment in that area.  That is how you get rich.  You don't get rich investing in things you know nothing about."

He stated,

     "The power is shifting again from the financial centers to the producers of real goods.  The place to be is in commodities, raw materials and natural resources..."

".....Don’t go to Harvard Business School." He also said, "If you want to make fortunes and come back and donate large sums of money to Balliol you’re not going to do it if you get an MBA."
