View from the markets

We have a couple of recent hits for you from FT.com's "View from the Markets" series.

These recent interview clips with Khiem Do, of Barings Asset Management, and Jim Rogers offer an insightful view of recent financial trends and investing themes worldwide.

In the first series of clips, FT's Andrew Wood asks Khiem Do for his view on subprime issues and the big picture outlook for the Asian economies.

We then hear some very interesting comments from Do on the US dollar and the strength of Asian currencies, and his outlook on the global economy in 2008.

Watch: Part one, part two, part three.

Jim Rogers joined FT "View" for a four-part interview in this second series of clips. As always, Rogers is happy to speak his mind on a number of subjects.

Here we see Rogers talk about US monetary policy and Ben Bernanke's reign at the Fed, the possibility of a short-term US dollar rally, American politics and Ron Paul (!), investing in China and Asia, the outlook for the Renminbi, Sovereign Wealth Funds, and his current views on commodities and emerging markets. Check it out.

Watch: Part one, part two, part three, part four.

Enjoy the interviews, and remember to come back and join us tomorrow for our "Features of the week". See you then.
