U.S. Faces Retro '70s Inflation: Jim Rogers


The U.S. is vulnerable to hyperinflation down the road because of the weak dollar and the Federal Reserve's policy of printing money to counter the effects of the crisis, legendary investor Jim Rogers told CNBC Thursday.

Price rises in the US are already steeper than the inflation rate reported by the government, Rogers added.

"There's no question the US is vulnerable to hyperinflation down the road or certainly the inflation we saw in the 1970s, I would expect that to come back in the foreseeable future, certainly in the next few years," he said.
