Everybody loves free money

Jim Rogers on CNN 08/10/11 -

Jim Rogers : here in Asia it means mass destruction of currencies and inflation everywhere this is not good for the world this is terrible terrible few are making money out of it , but this is terrible terrible news , now you have more currency debasement and more inflation ....the Renmimbi is gone up because of this and the Aussie dollar is about to rally because of it , you see the US Dollar already going down because people realize , well they are just going to print more money they are going to keep interest rates artificially low , no this is not good for America this not good for the world . .... yes everything is going to go up , everybody loves free money , but eventually the reality of free money in artificially low interest rates has to cause more inflation and more turmoil in the end , that's why the markets have been going down for the past several weeks because they understand it was not good , but now we are having a relief rally and everybody is saying thanks goodness there is more free money coming but in the long run it is bad for all of us including emerging markets .....
