copper gone balistic again - these costs have surely got to hit CPI soon - more grist to the mill

http://newsvote.bbc.co.uk/1/shared/fds/hi/...welve_month.stm

semi interesting fact

a penny is made of copper and weighs 3.56grams so there are 280898 1ps per 1000kgs

copper is trading at ($7285) £4215 per 1000kgs

this means that the scrap value of a 1p isyou can this makes 1 penny worth 1.5p as scrap

pitty there made of copper plated steel, though only since 1990, get hunting - its a never ending cashpoint - a bit like HPs till nowww!!!!!!!!!!

I think it's illegal to melt down coins of the realm. You'll probably end up in the dungeon of your local shire reeve.

But, try this as an inflation proof investment: 1st class stamps! Buy thousands of them today and the value will be guaranteed to rise with inflation (stamp inflation at least).

an aerial rigger once told me it was cheaper to drill a hole in 2p coins and use them as washers rather than buy them!

copper has gone up over 7 fi_iucking % today and just about every other commodity in the periodic table. This bottom line cost has got has got to feed into CPI eventually.

Speulators are playing the game, they are calling the bluff of central bankers - speculators are looking at the rate that phoney money is being pritned and saying we don't believe a word of your anti-inflationary stance guff, and we don't believe your CPI figures.

This may well continue until the central banks are forced to act, and you can forget about .25% rises doing the trick.

Look at the oil market, 24 months of guff eventually becomes the new baseline and expectant price for various producers.

If an infinite amount of currency is printed even a loaf of bread will cost an infinite amount of money.

In Zimbabwe a single sheet of toilet paper costs about $700 dollars (local dollars not US). It truly is a place where people would be financially better off wiping their **** with the contents of their wallet.

The price of electrical cable seems to go up about every month. Unfortunately when the ONS were surveying us for inflation data, we agreed on a small repair job involving a double socket rather than any cable. B****r! B****r! B****r! I was so looking forward to feeding them higher prices every time they rang!

In the world of hedonics, geometric weighting, and substitution your electrical cable is simply displaced by alternative ways of wiring, such as using yogurt and dairy products.

While it may appear interesting, it is not true. 'Copper' coins are actually made of copper-plated steel.

The people that make them should know; http://www.royalmint.com/RoyalMint/web/sit...cifications.asp

From September 1992 1p and 2p coins have been made in copper-plated steel, with the exception of 1998, when the 2p was made in both copper-plated steel and bronze.

Newsflash!!!

DVD players are now longer to be included in the inflation figures

This whole situation is based on illusion - the Tories did a wonderful job of dumbing down the masses over their 18 year reign and it's created a media spoon fed bunch of sheep

I hate you all

Is there anything left which is included in the inflation figures or do they just make them up completely?

It's mostly milk based products these days due to the influence of the economic giants that are Hugh 'Milky Milky' Dennis and Richard 'Milk of All Animals' Herring.

Milk accounts for 78% of all public spending. It's so versatile! ;)

copper gone balistic again

The new highs Thursday morning seem to have been caused by comments from the Marketing Director of BHP Billiton, the large mining concern, that base metals prices are unlikely to fall, which in turn sent prices soaring. The lingering strike at Grupo Mexico's La Caridad mine continues for its sixth straight week also, fueling fears that supplies will remain tight. Prices have nearly tripled since May of 2005. Not even a sharp increase in margins at the LME effective Friday has kept speculators from adding to existing long positions, but volume levels have moderated some. This has contributed to a strong increase in volatility, with less volume needed to generate large price swings.

Copper is in a commercial demand driven bull market, as opposed to Gold, which is in a speculative demand driven Bull market. On the one hand, some Gold Bulls are speculating that the fiat system will disintegrate sometime in the future, thereby delivering them into a kind of 'profit heaven' as gold once again becomes fiscally commercial, which in my view is unlikely. On the other hand, the price of Copper is being driven higher because it is in demand right now. Global commercial interests have been loading up big time, in particular in Indian and China. So much so that Copper Futures have increased 400% since April 2003 :D Consumption is outperforming supply, it's as simple as that.

UK is never going to sign up for the Euro - ill be surprised if the Euro still exists in a couple of years.

You cant govern multiple economies with a single currency.

That was the whole reason multiple Fiat currencies exist today.

A single currency means we might as well go back to bartering goods for gold again!
