Jim Rogers: Jim Chanos Couldn't Spell 'China' 10 Years Ago

The New York Times has an article on Jim Chanos’s big bearish China bet — a view he’s advanced through both POLITICO and CNBC in recent months.

It’s mostly a rehash of what’s already known: the famed shortseller sees a major credit bubble, a lot of hype, and an economy drive by stimulus.

But we were amused that Jim Rogers, obviously a gigantic China bull chimed in, basically calling Chanos a China neophyte. “I find it interesting that people who couldn’t spell China 10 years ago are now experts on China”

Rogers obviously likes to mix it up against the other big names. Last month he was “flabbergasted” by Roubini’s lack of knowledge on gold.

Seeing as Jim Rogers has literally gone all-in on East Asia — moving his family there — we can see why he’d be sensitive on this one.
