FED IN A PANIC: Jim Rogers on Who’s REALLY in Charge of the Markets

by | Personal Finance

Talk about a complete change of tune: in October the Fed said we’re a “long way from normal” in terms of rates, suggesting that they were preparing to raise interest rates. But then, after the stock market dropped 20%, there was talk of zero rate hikes or even rate cuts this year. So who’s really in control here: the Fed, or the stock market?

Given his long-standing stature and reputation in the investing community, Wealth Research Group sought the wisdom of legendary financial commentator Jim Rogers on this topic. He is the legendary investor who co-founded The Quantum Fund, which rose over 4,000% in 10 years and allowed him to retire at the age of 37.

Mr. Jim Rogers is also the creator of the Rogers International Commodities Index (RICI) and the Chairman of Rogers Holdings. Regarded by the business world as a brilliant investor as well as an astute and incisive author and financial commentator, Jim Rogers displayed a knack for business early on; his first endeavor included selling peanuts and picking up empty bottles left behind by fans at baseball games.

After his schooling, Jim Rogers went to Yale University, where he graduated with a degree in history in 1964. He then went to Oxford University to pursue a second B.A. degree. He earned his degree in philosophy, politics and economics in 1966.

With the Quantum Fund in 1973, Mr. Rogers built a tremendously successful international hedge fund and was not only able to retire early, but was also able to fulfill his lifelong dream of traveling the world by motorcycle, covering over 100,000 miles across six continents. Nowadays, Jim Rogers can be seen and heard expressing his financial views on numerous media platforms..

    Because Mr. Jim Rogers is well versed in the workings of the Fed and the stock market, Wealth Research Group asked him who he thinks is really in control here. According to Jim Rogers, we need to first understand that the people at the Fed are essentially bureaucrats and academics: they don’t know much about the world, markets, or anything else of importance

    They do, however, know about preserving their own jobs, according to Jim Rogers, and when investors get scared and say that the Fed needs to save them, the Fed doesn’t know what to do – they panic and they do whatever it takes to appease the markets.

    It’s the wrong thing to do, and the fact is that we’ve had very few really good central bankers in America in the past 106 years, according to Jim Rogers. The way the Federal Reserve is controlled by market sentiment isn’t good for America or the world – it’s only good for keeping their jobs.

    Naturally, if the market does well because the Fed is keeping interest rates low, the government will take credit for it. And if the market doesn’t do well, the government can blame the Fed and other scapegoats for this.

    Meanwhile, the government continues to spend money faster than ever, according to Jim Rogers, and the debt is skyrocketing – but for now, things seem pretty good with low reported unemployment figures. In the succinct words of Jim Rogers, people enjoy a free lunch.

    But the debt will drag us down – at the national level, at the company level, and at the individual level. America is not, and will not be, what it was before because we have become the largest debtor nation in the world. And it’s not just an American problem: economies are slowing down around the world, according to Jim Rogers, and at some point this will all end very badly.
