Jim Rogers: Bright People Should Study Agriculture Not Finance
Jim Rogers, the famous investor and author of several bestsellers, declared that now is the time to pursue careers in farming over finance. He argues that in the future, the center of the world will not be finance-driven but rather the production of real goods. In this context, Timothy Burcham, dean of Agriculture and Technology at Arkansas State University draws attention to the fact that one of the greatest challenges will be to feed nearly 9 billion people by 2050. Thus, people pursuing a degree in agriculture are more needed than ever in order to solve this fundamental problem in the United States and the world.
