Commodity Investing in a Time of Rising Resource Nationalism / Commodities / Resources Investing

By: Roger_Conrad

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article“Ever-deeper, ever-further” has been the mantra of major natural resource producers over the past decade, as emerging Asia has replaced the US as the world’s single biggest consumer and driven demand to new heights.

This unprecedented expansion hasn’t always driven up costs. In fact, major producers of everything from copper to platinum are uncovering some of the richest reserves yet seen with their massive investment. That’s helped keep a lid on companies’ overall production costs, which in turn has aided further investment. It has, however, elevated resource nationalism risk to heights not seen since the 1970s, when countries such as Chile expropriated assets from investors domestic and foreign.

The Anti-Gold Fool / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Gary_North

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDavid Weidner wrote a piece for MarketWatch: "Fool's Gold Standard."

It was standard stuff, i.e., a combination of economic stupidity, attempted cleverness, and the rhetoric of contempt.

It deserves my special treatment, which I reserve for mainstream media journalists who hate the idea of a world not run by the Federal Reserve and who try to be clever. Weidner is not clever.

The Chinese Steel Production Paradox / Commodities / Steel Sector

By: Anthony_David

With demand for steel on the wane, producers across the world have reported losses or sharp drops in profitability. The slowdown in the steel market has been attributed to the slowdown in the Chinese economy, the ongoing euro zone crisis and a sluggish U.S. economy. Though China, the largest consumer of steel has taken measures to boost its economy, it is not expected to result in an increased demand for steel in the short term.

Gold Price Breakout - But Don't Look for the Gold Standard to Be Reinstated / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Chris_Vermeulen

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleFor the first time in over 30 years, talk of a return to the gold standard has become part of mainstream politics in the United States. Part of the official Republican policy adopted it at the recent Republican Convention and called for the commission to look at reestablishing the link between gold and the U.S. dollar.

The printing press is running hot, but where is inflation and how will it affect gold? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: GoldSilverWorlds

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe key to understanding inflation lies in the implications of an increasing money supply. Here at Global Gold, we rely on the “True Money Supply” which is provided by the Mises Institute. The “True Money Supply” was originated by Murray Rothbard and represents the amount of money in the US economy that is available for immediate use in exchange. On the chart below you see that the True Money Supply has accelerated at a faster rate in the past couple of years; it is currently in an exponential growth phase. Even if one takes the official data published by the US Fed, the evolution looks similar: since 2000, the Fed balance sheet has increased fivefold.

By: Critical_Metals_Repo

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleLisa Reisman describes herself as a "classic libertarian," but the managing editor of MetalMiner.com nonetheless believes government has a role to play in protecting and developing domestic supplies of critical metals. In this exclusive Critical Metals Report interview, Reisman argues for private/public partnerships and explains why today's low prices don't phase her—or surprise her.

The Critical Metals Report: Lisa, many of the companies in the rare earth elements (REE) space are trading near 52-week lows. Has the bubble burst or is this a consolidation?
