Jim Rogers: Euro doomed but 'I bought some recently'

James Rogers is the maverick financial guru who made a fortune setting up what is now thought of as the first hedge fund with George Soros. When he speaks, markets listen.

His advice for years has been to invest in China and to buy commodities. But recently he has turned his attention to the euro.

Sarah Montague asks the renowned free-marketer whether he really thinks the euro is doomed, and if so, why is he buying it now?

You can watch HARDtalk on Thursday 17th June on the BBC News Channel at 0430 and 2330 BST and on BBC World News at 0330, 0830, 1530 and 2030 GMT.
