Jim Rogers Quotes of the Month: I’m Concerned About Japan

Famed commodities investor Jim Rogers has a lot of nuggets to offer investors. Here’s his quotes of the month:

“There will be lots of social unrest worldwide with governments and countries falling. Others will have crises before China (NYSE:FXI) – especially in the West Asia – perhaps even India (NYSE:IFN).” – mydigitalfc

“Index investing outperforms active management year after year.” – in Brainy Quote

“Somewhere along the line we’re going to have a tipping point for the dollar, then it’s all over. I thought it would happen in a few years; maybe it’s going to happen in a few weeks.” – in Wall St. Cheat Sheet

“Normally, when you have serious events like this, there’s panic selling. The best thing to do historically has been to wait a little while and then buy into the panic selling. In 1995 when they had the Kobe earthquake, the Japanese stock market (NYSE:EWJ) went down 25% but ended the year almost flat.” – in CNBC

“I’m concerned about Japan (NYSE:EWJ). What do I do now? Obviously the yen cannot continue to be a good long. Japan seems determined to debase the yen, which they may be about to do.” – in MarketWatch

There’s going to be a much bigger demand for oil (NYSE:USO) from power plants because nuclear power plants are being shut around the world. – on CNBC

Yes, this [disaster in Japan (NYSE:EWJ)] is going to increase demand for many commodities (NYSE:RJI). This is the new source of demand for copper and lead and things that nobody expected of new demand coming out of Japan, now there is a lot of new demand coming out of Japan. If the rest of the world goes into an economic slowdown because of this, then governments around the world are going to print even more money, that is the wrong thing to do but that is what they will do and whenever they print money, it is good for real asset, commodities (NYSE:RJI). – in Economic Times
