This is a very useful prediction of investor Mr. Jim Rogers. I am concerned about the phrase: “this party will last for a while until the latter half of 2015 at least.” The current world economy could crash at any time, but it might last until around this time if various methods are used.
The latter half of the article, which begins with the reference to investment to North Korea, is particulaly informative. He predicts that Japan’s economy will collapse. He points out the possibility that those who have houses to live in and have access to an environment where they can produce food will be winners in the near future. According to him, “considering a shortage of farmers in the future, those who can produce food will have promising future.” It is my opinion that those who are worried about high rent in the big city and cannot see the future had better choose this way that brings hope to them; they are apprenticed to practitioners of natural farming and can secure a stable life.

English translation of the excerpt from a Japanese article: Business Journal – January 8, 2015 –
Madness of Prime Minister Abe leading to Japan’s economy collapse – Monetary Easing and Tokyo Olympic Games to Result in Serious Consequences and Losses in the Future
I’d like to roughly summarize his predictions and introduce several magazines that differently cover his predictions.
It appears that Jim Rogers favorably sees the decision by the Bank of Japan in October 2014 to carry out additional monetary easing.”
“Japan’s central bank did what is very much welcomed by investors. The bank has made clear announcement that “We are going to a great amount of money to market.” It is just like saying that we are going to weaken the yen and pump up the stock price for a while. This party will last for a while until the latter half of 2015 at least or maybe longer.” (Quote “Nikkei Business”).
According to him, however, booming economy will not last longer.
“I suppose that before the Tokyo Olympic Games, the situation will be worse and economy will collapse not only in Japan but almost all over the world. Global-scale collapse will occur at least once until 2020.”
“In the first place, monetary easing and the Olympics do nothing other than increasing Japan’s debt in the long term. Increased debt never fails to cause inflation in some day.”
“Increase risk of national debt is more terrifying.”
“Though seemingly happy, Japan has to pay a huge price in the future.” (Quote: “Nikkei Business”)
He harshly criticizes Abenomics. He says that the policy leading to a weaker yen, among others, is the problem.
“Prime Minister Abe will enter history books as a person who died from the last arrow he shot which hit him in the back and collapsed Japan. He tries to devalue his own country’s currency. It is sheer madness.” (Quote: “President”)
“Booming economy will last for a while to those engaged in investment and those who gain money (thanks to monetary easing). However, Prime Minister Abe made a mistake and we will see serious consequences some day in the future. (snip) As for Japan, everything Prime Minister Abe has done is wrong and he will continue to commit mistakes.” (Quote: “Tokyo Keizai”)
Jim Rogers shows another interest in investment to North Korea.
“The Korean Peninsula will be unified within five years. You should not listen to political propagandas of Japan and the U.S. Russia and China have already made a huge investment to North Korea.” (Quote: “Tokyo Keizai”)
He says that it is necessary to pay attention to real asset gold and foreign currency investment in the future.
“It is important to possess real assets. You should not sell them. I’m thinking about adding to holdings when (gold market price an ounce) falls below 1,000 dollars.”
“You should start foreign currency investment. Let out your money overseas. Be sure to have your children learn a foreign language.”
“You should buy Japanese stocks and foreign currency. If I were you, I’d buy US dollar, Hong Kong dollar and Chinese yuan. And open a bank account overseas. Individuals and corporations had better possess a certain amount of asses overseas for security purpose. The young should learn Chinese by all means. If you intend to die in Japan, buy farmland and train yourself to operate a tractor. Considering a shortage of farmers in the future, those who can produce food would have promising future.” (Quote: “Nikkei Business”)
“If I were a young Japanese, I would learn a foreign language and prepare to get out of Japan. Or I might rise, carrying a Kalashinikov rifle and try to launch a revolution.”
