BBC HARDtalk - Jim Rogers
Stephen Sackur talks to one of the world's most influential investors. Aged five, Jim Rogers was selling peanuts for profit; he became a hedge fund pioneer, a commodities trader and, years ago, he shifted much of his money, and his family too, out of the US and into Asia. But can even this maverick investor see new opportunities in a world riddled with economic uncertainty?
We need some brave leadership and knowledgeable decision making in the UK and elsewhere to bring back our manufacturing from China, enact agricultural and energy reforms and the necessary fiscal and monetary control/planning. Maybe then Jim would bring back some of his money to invest here given the opportunity.
