Jim Rogers Short the Indian Market

ET Now: Nothing big has come out from the Jackson Hole meeting, but do you still expect FED to announce a QE3?

Jim Rogers: I do not know if they will announce it. I know they are going to print more money. They already are. If you look at their balance sheets, you will see that something is happening, assets are building on their balance sheets and they are not coming from the tooth fairy. So I do not know whether they will announce it or not. They are a little bit embarrassed because they announced QE1 and QE2, and it did not work. So they may try to discuss it. They may just continue to do it without getting egg on their face again, but they are going to print money, they are all going to print money. It is the wrong thing to do, but that is all they know to do.

ET Now: Are you expecting more shocks from the Eurozone or is the worst behind us?

Jim Rogers: Worst may be behind us for this week but no, there are going to be more problems coming out of Europe. You have got countries that are essentially bankrupt. Nobody is dealing with the problems in Europe. You look at everyone out there. They all have higher debts and all of their projections, maybe Bulgaria and one or two more countries do not have higher debts in their projections, but everybody has got increasing debt. The solution to too much debt is not more debt. So now you are going to have plenty more problems coming out of Europe.
