Jim Rogers: "Be Worried & Be Careful...The Emerging Market Crisis Is Not Over Yet" | Zero Hedge

Jim Rogers: "Be Worried & Be Careful...The Emerging Market Crisis Is Not Over Yet" | Zero Hedge | World Economies | Scoop.it
UBS' George Magnus believes the next global economic "crisis"' lightning rod will be the emerging markets and as Jim Rogers tells BoomBust's Erin Ade in this brief interview, "the emerging market crisis has only just begun." While Rogers is careful to add that there are lots of emerging markets - "some better than others;" he warns that "there are some serious problems out there and they are going to get worse." Who is to blame? The Fed, of course - "by driving rates so low and providing as much liquidity as anyone in the world could want, the EMs have borrowed to cover up their real problems... be worried."
