TMFDiogenes, he says commodities are in a secular bull market for another decade or so. He's not a "permabull." He regularly has interviews where he says he's "not buying gold here," or "buying dollars." His overall strategy is similar to many global hedge fund managers---shifting from one asset class to another as he sees spikes and dips.  If anyone knows differently, please correct me or add to the discussion:)

Heh. Not permabull Diogenes, only when he believes commodities to be in a supercycle (ie now). He shorted gold in 1981.

I love how chastised Bob Pisani looks when Rogers goes off on him for believing Bernanke about not doing QE3. Hilarious!

In my view, of all the talking heads Jim Rogers is the most insightful and biggest straight-shooter.

However, I would like to know what his motivation is.Why does he do all these interviews? Is it just to plug his books?
