INTERVIEW WITH THE INVESTMENT BIKER - by Steve Sjuggerud

Jim Rogers, if you didn't know, returned investors about 40 times their money
in a decade, and then retired. Even more amazing, it was the decade of the
1970s, when stocks did absolutely nothing.

I first met Jim at a private black-tie dinner in New Orleans in the mid-1990s.
We sat next to each other for the night, and traded investment stories, though
mine couldn't compete with his... As the author of the bestsellers Investment
Biker and Adventure Capitalist, Jim Rogers has no doubt logged more miles
searching for investment opportunities than anyone alive.

UNCLE SAM'S ASLEEP AT THE WHEEL - by Sean Brodrick

A CRISIS OF CONFIDENCE - by Dr. Marc Faber

Since late April the U.S. stock market has rallied strongly. (The S&P 500 is up by 5.5% but still down 1% year-to date.) In particular, the Nasdaq 100 had a powerful recovery move. From its April 29 intraday low of below 1400, it rose as of this writing [June 15, 2005] by 11.2%. In Europe, several stock markets broke out above their March highs (not the UK market), but strong gains in equities were largely offset by Euro weakness.

Therefore, while the German DAX is up by 5.2% year-to-date, in U.S. dollar terms it is down 3.2%. Similarly, the Swiss Market Index is up year-to-date by 8%, but in dollar terms it is down by 0.4 In Asia, the performance has so far been disappointing. There are several factors that may have contributed to this powerful recovery move.

THE SEESAW FED - by John Mauldin

I wrote the following the first week of January:

"The Fed is going to continue to raise rates until the economy shows signs of
trouble. While the Fed in the past has been willing to cause a recession, I do
not think this Fed will do so. They are on the See-Saw between worrying about
inflation and creating another speculative economy with interest rates too low
and the concern that raising rates too much will squeeze the growth out of an
economy that has grown addicted to, if not fat upon, - maybe even dependent
upon - low interest rates.
