Jim Rogers is a legendary investor from the US, who is frequently featured on both mainstream and alternative financial news media outlets.
He is most famous for having co-founded and run the wildly successful Quantum Fund with George Soros on Wall Street in the 1970’s.
Since then, Jim has travelled extensively around the world, on motorcycle and by car, earning a place in the Guinness Book of World Records for his efforts.
He’s written several books on investing (as well as parenting after coming to fatherhood later in life), which detail his primary investment philosophies held over the last few decades, which, simpy put are, a focus on China (and Asia generally), as well as commodities, for which he founded the Roger’s International Commodities Index.
In accordance with these views, Jim moved his family to Singapore in 2007, as he wanted his daughters to grow up speaking Mandarin and being familiar with China/Asia, in order to maximize their ability to create a happy and prosperous life for themselves in the future.
He is a vocal critic of the ‘bureaucrats in Washington’, especially when it comes to their addiction to debt, economic incompetence, and abuse of their power to issue currency.
As you’ll see in this discussion, he believes that similar behaviour by most major governments wil…
Subscribe to this channel: http://www.youtube.com/OpalesqueTV Steve Diggle is the co-founder of Artradis Fund Management, a hedge fund group significantly focused on arbitrage and volatility trading in Asia. The group ultimately enjoyed great success and grew its AUM to nearly $5bn in 2008. Artradis had seven years of profits which peaked in 2007 - 2008 where the firm made $2.7 billion profits for investors as markets see-sawed. As long volatility shop, Atradis later incurred losses while volatility declined and became more expensive.
The financial success of Artradis has allowed Steve Diggle to create Vulpes Investment Management, an unconstrained investment manager. In April 2011 Vulpes was seeded with over US$200m and currently has five funds open to third-party investors. The team consists of 19 professionals of which 10 transitioned from Artradis Fund Management. Diggle says he created Vulpes "to face and profit from the myriad challenges of the post- 2008 financial crisis" and focus on wealth protection "by concentrating on a small number of compelling investment opportunities."
In this Opalesque.TV BACKSTAGE video, Steve Diggle talks about: * Vulpes’ investment propositions: Volatility, Farmland, German Property, Russia, Life Sciences, long-term endowment-style fund blending listed and …
Business thinker and optimist Simon Sinek on the malaise at the heart of 21st century capitalism. When did it become the normal to put profits ahead of people? Many of the most ruthless practices in global capitalism came not from Adam Smith and the original capitalists but from theorists of the 1970s such as Milton Friedman.

I sat down with one of my greatest heroes, Paul Volcker, to talk about the state of the economy and U.S. government as well as learn about the principles that guided his incredible career. We also discuss the decline of civil service and how Paul hopes to revitalize the field with The Volcker Alliance by working with universities and the government to train people effectively and efficiently and minimize the bureaucratic hurdles that deter people from pursuing government jobs.

I had the opportunity to speak recently with General Stanley McChrystal, retired four-star general, former Commander of the International Security Assistance Force and Commander, US Forces, Afghanistan. Since 2010, he has taught courses in international relations at Yale University as a Senior Fellow of the University’s Jackson Institute for Global Affairs.
General McChrystal is also the the bestselling author of Leaders: Myth and Reality, described by the publisher as follows: “Leadership is not what you think it is… and it never was. Find out why in our new book Leaders: Myth and Reality which explains why leaders are important, but rarely for the reasons we think. Leaders, the follow up to New York Times bestseller Team of Teams and Wall Street Journal bestseller One Mission, profiles 13 historical leaders and reveals essential lessons on leading today.”
Wikipedia has the following biographical note, of some interest: “McChrystal was reportedly known for saying what other military leaders were thinking but were afraid to say; this was one of the reasons cited for his appointment to lead all forces in Afghanistan, and also the reason he was later relieved of that command.”
General McChrystal is also spearheading programs designed to integrated disaffected young people into responsible citiz…

But there’s arguably a minimalism practice that’s even more effective in achieving that greater efficacy: digital minimalism. My …
