After watching over 20 hours of interviews and reading A Bull in China and Hot Commodities, I realized that many public figures sometimes have to sublimate a part of themselves in order to be well-received. But there’s more to Jim Rogers, the king of the commodities world, than one might expect. As the co-founder of The Quantum Fund, the founder of The Rogers International Commodities Index, the chairman of Rogers Holdings and the author of five books, Jim Rogers is considered the Indiana Jones of Finance for a very good reason. He is driven by his love of adventure and his fascination with the interconnectivity of the entire world. Opportunities and investments seem to find him.
Tune in and spend 50 minutes on a Sunday morning in Singapore with Jim Rogers as he works out on his stationary bike. Don’t miss this journey into the mind of one of the world’s greatest investors.

Kim, it seems that Jim Rogers is part of the 99% of the public that is shut down to new knowledge. While I have no doubt that the mention of remote viewing has now planted a seed that in time will germinate – I am taken aback at Jim Rogers rationale for not giving Mr. Smith consideration -saying: “there is a fortune to be made finding oil – if he (Mr. Smith) doesn’t know that- then why would I want to waste my time.” I heard your interview with Mr. Smith and found it fascinating. My mind is open to the possibilities that are afoot with remote viewing and it stands to reason that Mr. Smith has his motivations for choosing what he uses his remote viewing abilities for and why. It seems that amassing a fortune may be a shared motive by Mr. Smith. In my view, Jim Rogers exhibited shortsightedness as it relates to remote viewing and i think that his reaction was disproportionately guarded in the face of prospective new knowledge – that poses no threat whatsoever.
