Of Rogers holdings well we certainly think you're wrong -- I wanna challenger right off the bat -- you always think -- high -- anyway usually turn out to be right I know but.
But even if economic policy changes.
Changed dramatically in the US -- we have an election coming up we may have tax reform in a serious way when rates come down and so forth.
Even if that happens we will go -- -- -- -- personal we have tax increases a substantial tax increase I know they're meant for January 1 but they may not happen if there's a choice okay if you know.
If you know they're not gonna happen we can discuss that too but so far the law is taxes go up January 1.
But second and David we have recessions Fortis every four to six years since the beginning of the republic.
Next year is four to six year -- were overdue they've always happen.
They always happen for different -- is -- maybe you know.
It's different this time -- -- you know my literally August are you gonna go Fox Business the way they haven't they haven't recovery -- that's the -- I'm gonna give it to list but this this hasn't been a recovery what we've had since the big recession well.
And Washington and they say it's a recovery don't you watch Fox Business I don't I -- they tell you it's a recovery the market's been going up the market hit bottom.
They tell you that the recession started in 2007.
Six years from 2007 is 2013.
We've always had one next time it's going to be worse -- Jim what does an investor like you doing to.
They prepare for that -- deal with the weakness that we've seen or at least the volatility that we've seen in the past couple of weeks.
Well one thing that I notice about the market here in the US is that.
Everybody comes out with -- good news and stocks go down and I've been investing a long time and I have noticed they wind good news comes out and stocks go down.
Something's wrong so you better be very word.
I don't know what's wrong but I know -- we had a great first quarter of one of the best first quarter is in history.
And now good news is coming out and stocks are going to -- so I'm coupon.
But I'm short of a few stocks and short I don't know many stocks -- short of -- stocks that were around the world emerging markets for instance.
Its European stocks for instance.
Long commodities and I'm -- currencies which commodities.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- That's I notice you're talking about go just that only owned gold -- I wouldn't be surprised that they didn't continue to have a big reaction to things going on and in Asia which means that commodities -- Goldman -- can go down for a while.
But I'm not telling my go to story you buying gold when it comes down like it has been -- -- if it goes on a lot David I hope I'm Smart enough to buy at I hope -- sought to buy a lot.
I'm not hedged in my go position right now and I sort of worried about that that may gusher -- but.
Now my own -- ago you said that you're shorting some stocks and some emerging markets which emerging markets are you looking at -- saying that's a problem.
Nearly all of them but especially India communion gifts for some reason they're always -- and India even though India has a 90% debt to GDP ratio which.
I don't know why people don't seem to understand that but the studies show that that's difficult.
After that after that breaking point just to grow very rapidly but you know.
I get some calls about the Euro you have some euros right I do you know -- -- are you -- some people say that it's very overvalued at current levels say -- I'm extremely worried about my -- I wish you -- -- up.

Zero pockets and I'm thinking about felt like your growth for goodness thank yeah -- near a bottom well but.
I that -- celebrate patents in the US dollar to him I own the dollar if I sell my euros by the US dollars not because I mean the US.
Terribly flawed currency this but but if the rest of the world goes into more and more turmoil and chaos people rightly are probably will put their money and US dollars I think broadly US dollars terribly flawed.
But I can tell the market what to do right it's your business to figure out what the trade -- -- -- to then make money you talked about agricultural commodities are -- can drill down and give a specific ones.
Well I own them all off I don't know this doesn't want to down the most is what I would look at what is just a play on the fact that we have an emerging middle class in China and everybody's going to start eating three meals a day -- -- -- a lot of things as the let me tell -- we don't have.
