“I Am Jim Rogers And I Support Ron Paul”
by Tyler Durden
Ron Paul has another illustrious supporter – Jim Rogers. The Quantum fund co-founder, who has been spot on about pretty much everything for the past 3 years (see Roubini Versus Rogers Is Right Debate for 2010: Investor Jim Rogers thinks gold will double to at least $2,000 an ounce. Economist Nouriel Roubini says that’s “utter nonsense.” As these well-known market personalities duke it out, they’re doing us a favor by highlighting a critical debate: Which is the bigger threat — inflation or deflation?), not to mention gold (to the amusement of such Keynesian soundbites recorded for posterity as the following: “Maybe it will reach $1,100 or so but $1,500 or $2,000 is nonsense”), and especially inflation (perhaps the only thing that will prompt a chuckle out of Gadaffi and Mubarak these days is someone telling them that their multi-decade reigns are over due to hyperdeflation and plunging food prices), was caught on tape voicing his endorsement of the only sane person who can possibly do something for this country. “In this election if Ron Paul gets anywhere near the nomination I would certainly support him. He is the only one that I’ve seen in American politics that seems to have a clue about what’s going on.” Zero Hedge agrees on all counts.
