Silver is going to go much, much higher over the next decade

"Silver's going to go much, much higher over the next decade," Jim Rogers said. :" the world is having shortages developed in nearly every metal" Jim Rogers explained . " ...I own the metals themselves , I happen to own some Rio Tinto which I have owned for decades , 12 years , basically I rather own the metals themselves rather than the miners ""If you picked the right miners or the right oil company or the right anything you can make a lot more money than you are making in the metal there is no question about that , but the study show that you better off owning the commodities themselves than rather than the miners or the oil companies , for instance natural gas tripled in the last few years , well Enron was a natural gas company , Enron went to zero , natural gas can go down but it cannot go to zero the same with all commodities , if you picked the right one you are going to make a lot lot more money but otherwise you should stay I think with the commodity itself" - in CNBC
