Commodities

Recommended Posts

i think discussions on precious metals and commodities in general are an integral part of the HPC debate.

other forums, often labelled as nutters, have long predicted the rise in the gold price and inflation. the fact is they have been right. the precious metal complex rally is an excellent predictor and symptom of inflation.

forget the statistics, inflation is potentilly a HUGE threat. Bernanke even departed from Greenspan's more opaque FOMC message by explicitly stating there are upside risks to inflation.

interest rates are rising everywhere in every land. just today alone, Iceland and Taiwan put theirs up.

the HPC is on course.

If inflation rails through the structure of business, then make no mistake interest rates will rise. I think you are right, but tommorow a report comes out by (IPPR's) Nick Pierce, recommending that half a million illegals, should just be turned into citizens.

It seems to me a special visa system could be extended to these workers, removing them from exploitation, and then funding themselves through taxes towards thier repatration to thier own countries. Back it up with a 6 month stay in a repratriation centre if they simply disappear again before deportation to deter others and people traffickers.

You can see the sheer scale of numbers, deflating incomes, and raising rents for landlords, and if interest rates rise, rents may also rise, plus taxes as real income collapses under inflation and even more resources are needed by the state to meet commitments.

This would mean people caught in a surf like existance, between taxes in an argueably increasingly undemocratic and corrupt state, enforced by the worlds most advanced police state, and rising rents.

Those folks in Iceland and Taiwan are not buying their DVD and MP3 players from China. That's their problem. Fix that and their inflation will be at a respectable 2% like ours.

Or the economy might just collapse.

deflating incomes, and raising rents for landlords,

How does deflating incomes increase rents for landlords?
