‘Run for the Hills’ Now, I’m Doing It: Jim Rogers


The EU/IMF raiding bank accounts in Cyprus to bail out the country’s financial system sets a dangerous precedent and investors should “run for the hills” said investor Jim Rogers, chairman of Rogers Holdings, on “Squawk on the Street”Thursday.

Rogers said that with Cyprus, politicians are saying that this is a special case and urging people not to worry, but that is exactly why investors should be concerned.

“What more do you need to know? Please, you better hurry, you better run for the hills. I’m doing it anyway,” Rogers said. “I want to make sure that I don’t get trapped. Think of all the poor souls that just thought they had a simple bank account. Now they find out that they are making a ‘contribution’ to the stability of Cyprus. The gall of these politicians.”

“If you’re going to listen to government, you’re going to go bankrupt very quickly,” he added.

“I, for one, am making sure I don’t have too much money in any one specific bank account anywhere in the world, because now there is a precedent,” he said. “The IMF has said ‘sure, loot the bank accounts’ the EU has said ‘loot the bank accounts’ so you can be sure that other countries when problems come, are going to say, ‘well, it’s condoned by the EU, it’s condoned by the IMF, so let’s do it too.'”

Jim Rogers, a voice closely followed by market participants, began shorting financials, home builders and Fannie Mae in 2006, and is famous for co-founding the Quantum Group of Funds with billionaire George Soros. Quantum is famously regarded for “breaking” the Bank of England and forcing a devaluation of the pound.

  1. I said before and I’ll say it again: Communal living with christians coming together and share…start within the christian community…work our way outward just as the disciples did. They took care of those in need and was w/o in Jerusalem and it was paid forward as they say nowadays. Anybody own a huge farm: I’m from the country and know how raise a garden…..need I say more…..God bless
    P.S.- no electronics allowed as Big Bro. would trace everyone…just a thought…


Rev. 22:20 'Surely I am coming quickly, Amen. Even so, come Lord Jesus!'
