Investor Jim Rogers bullish on North Korea amid global economic woes

Financial guru warns world's debt is 'out of control,' and 'Japan has been ruined'

Legendary investor Jim Rogers, who co-founded the Quantum Fund with George Soros in 1973, thinks the next financial meltdown will be the worst in his lifetime.

TOKYO -- Famed financial guru Jim Rogers predicts North Korea will be the biggest investment opportunity over the next 20 years even though the world is facing the "worst" economic crisis in his lifetime.

The investor, who co-founded the well-known Quantum Fund with George Soros in the 1970s, said he was confident about the potential of North Korea despite the collapse of talks last week between U.S. President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un to denuclearize the Korean peninsula.
