Looking More and More Like Jim Rodgers Agriculture Farmer Advice Is Great

Jim Rodgers has been telling everyone in the world to look to agriculture and hard assets to invest in and that farmers will be the ones driving Lamborghinis in the next 20 to 30 years.

Rodgers’ Investment views from;

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jim_Rogers

In 2002, Rogers said that Fed Chairman Alan Greenspan’s “reaction to the stock-market bubble has caused two more bubbles to grow: a real-estate bubble and a consumer-debt bubble.”[14] In 2006, Rogers said he was shorting US financials, home builders and Fannie Mae.[15][16]On November 4, 2010, speaking at Oxford University’s Balliol College, Rogers urged students to scrap career plans for Wall Street or the City, London’s financial district, and to study agriculture and mining instead. “The power is shifting again from the financial centers to the producers of real goods. The place to be is in commodities, raw materials, natural resources.”[17]In May 2012 he remarked during an interview with Forbes Magazine that “there’s going to be a huge shift in American society, American culture, in the places where one is going to get rich. The stock brokers are going to be driving taxis. The smart ones will learn to drive tractors so they can work for the smart farmers. The farmers are going to be driving Lamborghinis. I’m telling you. You should start Forbes Farming.”[18]

 

But seriously folks, not everyone can or wants to follow his advice and move to Singapore like he did;  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jim_Rogers

[…]In December 2007, Rogers sold his mansion in New York City for about 16 million USD and moved to Singapore. Rogers claimed that he moved because now is a ground-breaking time for investment potential in Asian markets. Rogers’s first daughter is now being tutored in Mandarin to prepare her for the future. He is quoted as saying: “If you were smart in 1807 you moved to London, if you were smart in 1907 you moved to New York City, and if you are smart in 2007 you move to Asia.” In a CNBC interview with Maria Bartiromo broadcast on May 5, 2008, Rogers said that people in China are extremely motivated and driven, and he wants to be in that type of environment, so his daughters are motivated and driven. He also stated that this is how America and Europe used to be. He chose not to move to Chinese cities like Hong Kong or Shanghai due to the high levels of pollution causing potential health problems for his family; hence, he chose Singapore. He has also advocated investing in certain smaller Asian frontier markets such as Sri Lanka and Cambodia, and currently serves as an Advisor to Leopard Capital’s Leopard Sri Lanka Fund.[8] However, he is not fully bullish on all Asian nations, as he remains skeptical of India’s future – “India as we know it will not survive another 30 or 40 years”.[9] In 2008 Rogers endorsed Ron Paul for President of the United States.[10][…]

 

But…………the signs are everywhere that this financial age is ending and the jobs and occupations of the future will not follow the post WW2 ‘upwardly mobile’, ‘rat race’ that has lead to our IT world that really does not need humans to function. So to survive our progeny our will have to look at different models of employment, investment, and survival. The future is hot on our tails………..

Traditional jobs just keep on being ‘farmed out’ to anyone who will accept the ‘opportunity’ to undercut the current holder of the job.  Just one example from Canada;

http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/british-columbia/story/2013/04/05/bc-rbc-foreign-workers.html

[…]Dozens of employees at Canada’s largest bank are losing their jobs to temporary foreign workers, who are in Canada to take over the work of their department.[…]

This despite Canada’s workers’ protection guidelines,

[…]Displacement against rulesHowever, it is against federal rules for any company to bring foreign workers into Canada temporarily if it will put citizens out of work.“The rules are very clear. You cannot displace Canadians to hire people from abroad,” said Immigration Minister Jason Kenney.[…]

(Of course these undercutter job replacers will be disposed of by computer and robotics ASAP in the already begun robot age).

 

A world without humans? Not happening, but those PTB are crazy to try their experiments in eugenics and robotics, so the illusion of the modern world is soon breaking down to the realities of the thread of life here on this beautiful sustaining earth.
