Rogers also admits to being the world's worst market timer.  


Agriculture has collapsed, again, and Rogers has been bullish on that for, oh, forever.  There is a massive supply of grain hitting the market, the crops are as good as they could be, and not ONE field around here went unseeded due to "farmers not getting loans for fertilizer."  I like Rogers, but sometimes I think he tries to convince himself that he actually knows what is going on in farm country. He doesn't have the first clue, IMO.

Who cares what Rogers thinks? The guy had his 15 minutes of fame, but not that everyone is realizing he's wrong about almost everything, he's back to obscurity.
