    When North Korea Collapses, Jim Rogers Will Have A Stranglehold On The DPRK Commemorative Coin Market

    North Korea had enough gold to make 20 coins. And Jim Rogers bought most of them—because he’s pretty sure North Korea won’t be making any more gold coins.

    This Is A Story About Jim Rogers Allegedly Flipping Out On His Dentist After Allegedly Receiving “Cosmetic Enhancements” To His Teeth

    One thing many tend to forget when thinking about multi-billionaires is that multi-billionaires are people too. People who just want to be loved. People who just want to feel good about themselves. People who just want to be beautiful. And just because they are worth mucho dinero does not necessarily mean that when they look in the mirror, they like what they see back. So they try and improve their appearances, thinking a tighter ass or more sculpted calves or higher cheekbones will make them happy and when things don’t pan out like they’d hoped, they get a little upset. Take Jim Rogers, for instance. He supposedly wanted movie star teeth. So he went to his dentist in Singapore and had a new set put in and when they started falling out, well, can you really blame him for storming the office and making a scene?

    An American billionaire, a permanent resident here, is suing his dentist over a treatment that has left little for either party to smile about. Investment guru Jim Rogers, 69, wants a reimbursement of the $48,150 he spent on ceramic enhancements to his teeth recommended by Dr Ernest Rex Tan of Smile Inc Dental – and compensation on top of that. It is unclear how much compensation is being sought, but Chinese-language daily Lianhe Zaobao reported yesterday that the case is to be heard in the High Court, where only claims above $250,000 are dealt with. Dr Tan, 43, is fighting back, and counter-claiming for defamation. Zaobao reported court documents as saying that Mr Rogers is accusing Dr Tan and his practice of negligence for recommending partial-coverage ceramic restoration that turned out to be unsuitable for his teeth. The ceramic enhancements on his teeth later fell off.

    Dr Tan said Mr Rogers had not gone to him for treatment of temporomandibular joint disorder, but had wanted cosmetic enhancements to his teeth. The dentist said he had warned his patient about the potential problems, but Mr Rogers had decided to go ahead with it. He added that Mr Rogers had also ignored his advice to wear a dental splint. At a consultation to fix the fallen enhancements, the dentist said, Mr Rogers shouted at him in front of his staff and patients; he added that Mr Rogers also defamed him in a letter to six people.

    According to a spokesman for Rogers, a statement on the matter will be released “at an appropriate time.” It’s unclear when that is, or if it will be via a letter to investors, but we will of course keep you posted.

    If You Love China So Much Why Don’t You Marry It?

    …is a thing people, knowing his position on the country, have probably asked Jim Rogers before.  And don’t think he hasn’t thought of it! Unfortunately, the investor is spoken for. Having said that, Rogers is thrilled at the prospect of his daughters’, ages 4 and 9 years-old, marrying one of China’s native sons and is currently accepting applications from potential suitors.

    The US has become world’s biggest debtor nation in history, while China, Japan and South Korea are the major creditor nations. If the renminbi can be exchanged freely in the world, “I prepare to invest in China for 100 years,” Rodgers added. The smart investor keeps all Chinese shares for his young daughters: nine-year-old Happy Rogers and four-year-old Little Bee, and welcomes Chinese men as his potential sons-in-law. “He must be very intelligent, older than my daughter, and have had a wide variety of experiences in life, and a great career will be a plus,” he said at the forum. A Chinese student among the audience said he would try his best to meet the demands; the investor immediately gave his business card to the young man, which triggered laughter at the scene.
