no, i don’t have any investing tips
jesus christ people, for the last time i did not ask jim rogers for any tips and i don’t know what he is investing in. seriously, when i ask him to teach me, i wanted to do it the hard way because in life there is no point with someone giving you a fish a day when you should learn to fish for yourself.
if i had asked him for tips, it would be an insult to him. i don’t have any tips for you but i can tell you this, he is 68 years old, he got off the plane with a stack of newspapers in his hand. when i showed him how he can now read financial times, bloomberg, awj on the iphone, he offered to trade his blackberry for my iphone( sorry rim, your technology is so passe) the man reads and observes – loads. and think about it, he was picking cans to sell at the age of 5. what were you doing? i was climbing trees, playing badminton with my neighbors and cycling. so does it surprise you he is more successful than you and me? the answer is no, he worked hard, he never took no for an answer and he lives his life seeking to learn new things.
and seriously, you do not need to ask mr. rogers how commodities will fare. as i was at the gym this evening, two ladies( they are cleaners) were chatting and they said that the prices of meat went up 50%. stop hanging out with people who earns only 200k a month, they won’t know. ask people who earns less than 10k a month. they can tell you how real inflation is and stop having your nose buried in your game consoles, the world is trying to teach you something. just open your heart to it.
by the way, mr. steve jobs please send mr. rogers an iphone and have one of your glorious mac genies teach him how to use . do it before eric schmidt does it – because you know what after seeing the android ( man the screen is so beautiful) i am now lusting for it.
