Tom welcomes a new guest Simon Hunt to discuss the global economy and the copper industry.
Simon expects a significant correction in copper prices this summer. Copper is now part of the speculative money game, and it’s not industry driving the price. There is a substantial need for copper and aluminum in energy and electrification. However, higher prices lead to innovation, and if copper prices are here to stay, you will see serious substitution. Copper used to act as an economic barometer, but since 2011, this has not been the case. The most significant factor driving copper prices is the future world economy.
Inflation will burn off a lot of the fiscal and monetary stimulus. Personal income has declined when factored for inflation. We are experiencing stagflation.
He believes that by 2024 we will be in a crisis since debt is growing faster than GDP. Western Central banks are deliberately blowing up the system so they can introduce a different structure. It probably will involve digital currencies and a world system based on equity, not debt. China and Russia are in the lead, preparing themselves by reducing dollars and a far further along in introducing digital currencies. China holds vast quantities of gold, which will become part of China’s future monetary system.
Simon believes that China has no interest in being a reserve currency; instead, they want a multi-polar system. China’s focus is no longer on growth but on preparing for difficult times. They are now pursuing orthodox monetary policies.
He expects a bounce in the dollar but an eventual halving of the dollar index. Fewer and fewer want to hold dollars due to the enormous fiscal and monetary stimulus programs.
We will move into a new commodity supercycle around 2027, and the financial community is not taking note of the short-term cycles. The real commodity supercycle won’t begin until after a major crash.
