Equitymaster Websummit: Investor Education Initiative

"Nothing Good In India"

Dear Privileged Member:

It was a privilege.

A pleasure.

...Yet was enlightening to a great extent.

Jim Rogers
Our exclusive interview with Jim Rogers, the man himself.

If you know Jim's story, you probably know that this man was born to be one of the greatest investors of all time.

Selling peanuts at the age of five to getting a job in Wall Street at the age of 22 to starting his first index fund with George Soros at the age of 31, Jim has had a meteoric rise in the investing world.

And what's even more interesting about him is that he likes to break rules as an investor. He is famous for his contrarian calls and controversial ideas.

In fact, he proved it again in our interview, when he went ahead with his latest commentary on the Indian economy, and said:

"I am short India."

"India is a wonderful place to visit as a tourist but as an investor, no, India is not a good place to invest in."


Well, at first, it seemed that he was defying what almost every other investor has said about India. Yet when he explained himself, we couldn't agree more.

In the interview, we have touched a lot of other questions such as:

» Where is Gold headed? When is the good time to buy it?
"Gold went up 12 years in a row. That's extremely unusual for any asset..."
» Which Country is he investing in right now?
"Everybody hates this country, is very cheap, nobody wants to invest in this country...I am looking for an opportunity there..."
» What might be the outcome of the current global economic condition?
"The next economic slowdown will be much, much worse than 2008-2009..."
» What should an average investor invest in?
"Everybody has to find their own way. I know some people who are short term traders, who can trade every 5 minutes..."
» How the Indian economy might become more favorable to the foreign investors?
"In 1980s, you were still a successful country. But politicians made more and more mistakes in India. I don't see that changing anytime soon..."
» And so on.
It is a big learning experience for all of us at Equitymaster, and probably, for YOU as well.

If you want to know where India is headed and what you do with your gold assets, you better not miss this exclusive interview.
