Jim Rogers once worked for George Soros.
Since they departed ages ago, I have never seen them speak about one another, until today. This morning I posted a youtube video of George Soros being trapped in his own statements by a Chinese gentleman who appears to be using the arguments developed by Tom Woods in his book, Meltdown.
After the debate between the the Chinese gentleman and Soros, the video tape went into a Chinese voiceover, but the patient are indeed rewarded. I listened through the Chinese voiceover only to discover on the other end of the voiceover Soros discussing Rogers.
A second Chinese gentlemen who appears to be an anchor asked Soros about the investment style of Rogers and also Warren Buffett. It is unclear if the anchor was aware that Rogers once worked for Soros.
Soros answered the question by telling the audience that Rogers once worked for him, and then said that when Rogers worked for him he did the work of 8 people. He went on to say that he and Rogers parted ways because although Rogers was a great analyst that could do the work of 8, he did not want to work with 7 others. Soros then said that although Rogers is a great analyst, he does not think Rogers has been a great investor. How Soros could actually know such a thing, since Rogers is a private investor and does not have to disclose his positions or profit and loss statement, is unknown.
The video is in my earlier post, here. The relevant part of the clip starts at roughly the 7 minute mark.
