Hi all!

Jim Rogers recently stated:

"I have covered most of my short positions in U.S. stocks, and I'm now selling long-term U.S. government bonds short. That's the last bubble I can find in the U.S. I cannot imagine why anybody would give money to the U.S. government for 30 years for less than a 4% yield. I certainly wouldn't. There are going to be gigantic amounts "

What vehicles/how would one go about executing such a strategy ( rightness or wrongness of said strategy aside )?

Thanks!
Murph
