Jim Rogers on Crude Oil, Gold and the Biggest U.S. Bubble Treasury Bonds 27th March 2010 - 5 minutes

Debate on the scope and risks of the US health care plan still rages even as Pres. Obama unveiled a $14 billion plan to help homeowners. And the impact of a Greek bailout on the Eurozone economies is still a question.

Jim Rogers, chairman of Rogers Holdings, offered CNBC more insights into American and global markets.

"All governments around the world are debasing their currencies," he declared.

"There may come a time when we all have to have all of our money in real assets."

"I certainly own gold," he said. But he pointed out the precious metal's "extremely strong" moves since 2009: "Anything that goes up that far that fast should consolidate and rest."

"I like to buy what's cheapest. Silver is cheaper than gold, on a historical basis; natural gas is cheaper than oil."

"We see more and more speculation in oil and gold. And in these times, it's usually best to step back and let others speculate."

Rogers reiterated his take on the "two biggest bubbles in the world" right now — US Treasurys and Chinese real estate:

"There's no question that the United States government's long bond is a bubble."

"In particular, Hong Kong real estate is nuts," he added.

Global Dimming Impact on Climate Change18th Dec 2009 - 49 minutes

Horizon producer David Sington on why predictions about the Earth's climate will need to be re-examined. We are all seeing rather less of the Sun. Scientists looking at five decades of sunlight measurements have reached the disturbing conclusion that the amount of solar energy reaching the Earth's surface has been gradually falling. Paradoxically, the decline in sunlight may mean that global warming is a far greater threat to society than previously thought.

The effect was first spotted by Gerry Stanhill, an English scientist working in Israel. Comparing Israeli sunlight records from the 1950s with current ones, Stanhill was astonished to find a large fall in solar radiation. "There was a staggering 22% drop in the sunlight, and that really amazed me," he says.

Jim Rogers Says Gold Not a Bubble, Silver a Better Buy10th Dec 2009 - 11 minutes

Commodities are still a great place to invest, while some currencies also offer value and investors should stay away from US stocks and bonds, Jim Rogers, chairman of Jim Rogers Holding, told CNBC Thursday.

Rogers has long been bullish on commodities, especially since central banks started to print money to combat the financial crisis.

He is holding gold right now and despite the recent spike in the metal's price, said he things the market is not experiencing a bubble.

"I wouldn't think of selling," Rogers said. "If gold goes to $1,000 (per ounce) – or pick a number – I hope that I'm smart enough to buy more."

With central banks now buying gold and many people worried about paper money, gold will be a great investment over the next decade and relatively few people are invested in it, he said.

Financial Crisis Hidden History, The Warning Frontline Video 25th Oct 2009 - 55 minutes

In The Warning, veteran FRONTLINE producer Michael Kirk unearths the hidden history of the nation's worst financial crisis since the Great Depression. At the center of it all he finds Brooksley Born, who speaks for the first time on television about her failed campaign to regulate the secretive, multitrillion-dollar derivatives market whose crash helped trigger the financial collapse in the fall of 2008.

"I didn't know Brooksley Born," says former SEC Chairman Arthur Levitt, a member of President Clinton's powerful Working Group on Financial Markets. "I was told that she was irascible, difficult, stubborn, unreasonable." Levitt explains how the other principals of the Working Group -- former Fed Chairman Alan Greenspan and former Treasury Secretary Robert Rubin -- convinced him that Born's attempt to regulate the risky derivatives market could lead to financial turmoil, a conclusion he now believes was "clearly a mistake."

Born's battle behind closed doors was epic, Kirk finds. The members of the President's Working Group vehemently opposed regulation -- especially when proposed by a Washington outsider like Born.

"I walk into Brooksley's office one day; the blood has drained from her face," says Michael Greenberger, a former top official at the CFTC who worked closely with Born. "She's hanging up the telephone; she says to me: 'That was [former Assistant Treasury Secretary] Larry Summers. He says, "You're going to cause the worst financial crisis since the end of World War II."... [He says he has] 13 bankers in his office who informed him of this. Stop, right away. No more.'"

Greenspan, Rubin and Summers ultimately prevailed on Congress to stop Born and limit future regulation of derivatives. "Born faced a formidable struggle pushing for regulation at a time when the stock market was booming," Kirk says. "Alan Greenspan was the maestro, and both parties in Washington were united in a belief that the markets would take care of themselves."

Now, with many of the same men who shut down Born in key positions in the Obama administration, The Warning reveals the complicated politics that led to this crisis and what it may say about current attempts to prevent the next one.
