This dumb post is two moths old, and the Dow and S&P are near or at all-time highs. Let your heart not be troubled. We may have another 2,000 points on the Dow before we are in t danger of getting a prolonged decline.
Jim Rogers is a conservative; he considers his econmic views to be "Austrian School". He is on Fox, and we would not expect him to have anythign good to say about our econmic future so long a a Democrat is in the White House.
