(So as to speak.)
two people at work asked me about rhodium... weird.
I don't know what the economics of it are, but they sell it at kitco and the 5Y graph looks like there's probably an interesting story behind it.
Harder, more rare than Pt. Can be used like Pt in autos. Used as plating for white gold jewelry. It soared to $10K/oz in a blip in questionable industrial panic circumstances. Hard to find as solid mint product. Powder "sponge" container easiest form to get and resell to real users. Chain of integrity / purity / assay issues with powder. Kitco will store for fee and assure integrity for resale. Seems to me that it's rare, but so many issues with storage and demand side make it a real crap shoot as a speculative investment.
Yes on all accounts...good info, well done.
Rhodium is a wonderful metal, very rare, but it's value is basically all industrial.....
"white" gold is rhodium plated gold. It's whiter than silver. Shiny shiny.
I CANNOT believe there is one other pucker who understands the De Beers. They paid Austrailias national debt. Look toward Arkansas next. Long bourse!
Victory Gardens Vegans!

l-Glucose, fat pigs!
Should be good for $100 oz Ag by 12/31/2011...
no, should be good for a lot of air pockets in valuation everywhere. That's nationalisation of Yen investments. Liquifaction of the Dow to commence in October.
I told you so... China is not a "market" place. It will get anything on it's territory if "it" has to protect internal stability
Quisling Bernank won't be outdone...QE-3 Trillion $$$ here we come!
¿Tienes puta plata?
it's a 300 000 000 to 1 300 000 000 chance it will be outdone. the paper Trillions are just a number. there is a big difference between "economy" and "markets"
Obama 012 shitheads!
Reality can wait.
Well sooner or later the dead and dieing would gather togather.
That Japan is still kicking is beyond real.
PS: No force can stop one million people from having a BBQ anywhere in Amarica.
Piss: I feel so special i was junked. I have a warm fussy feeling. Like my coment had meaning to someone as if i made their day. Like big warm breasts wrapped my special understanding.
Thank you; you are special too. :P
I didn't junk you. Maybe they just couldn't appreciate the poorly worded rambling post with a number of spelling errors?
Paul Krugman junks every post on a thread to keep track of the ones he's read already.
Krugman can suck Hayekian cock - damn Keynesian nut.
Kyocera vs. Xerox, round 1, FIGHT!!!
FRN's will massacre JPY's in this currency war.
Krugman is a typical inbred New Yawk pseudo-intellectual...
This type of scum has been trotted out to infect sheepster brains while the bankster and political criminal class loot the country!
Unbelievably, for a vast majority of 'MeriKa, they still don't see through the confidence game(s)...
Then again, some "awakened" sheeple are still being led over the cliff by cult-leaders like Prechter, Denninger, Schiff et al.
There's a whole galaxy of self-important dis-information out there...
they say, at the end, it is a shiny meddle.
Dubious on the use of "sheepster" here. Hate to be pedantic but ZH has, well should have, standards of discourse. And how are they different from "sheeple"?
get with it dude
"Tax livestock" seems the most appropriate term (covers sheeple, bulls, bears and piigs). Also avoids the inclusion of gold-bugs and silver-bugs.
Works well. Thanks.
Those words scare me - not on the sense that you use them, but in the sense that they are personal property (or business property, actually) and any gain from the sale of a brood cow can be taxed. Heavily. Better off to just eat them when they have served their useful life.
Kinda like a taxpayer, just good for soylent green production when the working age has passed.
And exactly what flavour of Disinfo do you prefer? Schiff sounded the initial alarm better than anyone!
I prefer -0- Disinfo, what I crave are SOLUTIONS!
In the history of mankind, the most effective solution, establishling The Rights of the Individual, denying The Devine Rights of Kings, and instituting an unbiased Rule of Law started with this:
WHEN in the Course of human Events, it becomes necessary for one People to dissolve the Political Bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the Powers of the Earth, the separate and equal Station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent Respect to the Opinions of Mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the Separation.
WE hold these Truths to be self-evident, that all Men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness -- That to secure these Rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just Powers from the Consent of the Governed, that whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these Ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its Foundation on such Principles, and organizing its Powers in such Form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.
P.S. Ol' Thomas Jefferson didn't create the most significant part of the Declaration of Independence on his own, out-of-thin-air, and without LEGAL precedent.
*THERE IS A SOLUTION*
If the USD crashes then that's probably doomsday for the Feral Govt as well. Good riddance. This is everybody's big chance to dust off the 10th Amendment, storm the prison gates, and restore American civilization.
Bernaysian Principle...Discredit and divert.
Discredit; attack individual, absent intellectual foundation, relegate to theater of absurd, irrelevant, label as extreme; e.g.,"a conspiracy theory"
Divert; shunt/relate to sundry associated debate, invoke immersion in Hegelian Dialect.
"There's a whole galaxy of self-important dis-information out there..."Poetic beauty, elegance, my dear fellow.
I love you.
Jewish central bankers, sheeple.
"Spend It Like You Stole It" ... hat tip to Bill Bonner at The Daily Reckoning...
04/29/11 Baltimore, Maryland – QE2 is ending in June. But globally, QE3 has already begun. As usual, Japan is the pacesetter. As temperatures rose at its Fukushima reactor so did Japan’s monetary base – at the rate of 100% per week! What happens to all this new, hot money? No one knows, exactly. But today, at The Daily Reckoning, we have advice for everyone – central planners, politicians, and householders, too: if you have money, pretend you robbed a bank.
From the point of view of a modern economist, nothing stimulates better than a bank robbery. The money leaves the cold embrace of a bank vault; soon every pimp and bartender has his pockets full. Hot money gets around."
"What happens to all this new, hot money?"
They pay damages to the displaced populace?
Try getting damages from a drunken sailor after he's been on shore leave with a wallet full of stolen credit cards.
"from a drunken sailor after he's been on shore leave"
Hey, hey hey! I was a drunken sailor on shore leave in the early 80's! I never had stolen credit cards! I did spend all I had though.....
Us Navy 1980-1986! Service bitches!
i don't think japan really has a choice do they? they've been QEsing for 20 some years now i think the only thing they can do especially with all the latest fun time stories coming form them is turn the dial up on the printing presses.
at least japan had an actually excuse for theirs other preserving the kleptocratic class like the US's excuse for turning theirs up...
Math question: * eight times -1 equals minus eight
I think the word you were searching for was Quisling:
I read it as Q-easing, as in what it is: quantitative easing.
I could be wrong.
I was being facetiously truthful...
When your debt-to-GDP levels are in the stratosphere it's just a matter of time. Pre-Fuckasheme Japan was hovering around 200%, now it may be closer to 275%.
This would have been the perfect time for them to exit stage door left and do a reset but I'm thinking they really believe in the Chairistan.
If you're watching the earthquake activity on the continental shelf north and east of Japan you may be thinking soon they will be a nation of swimmers as the shelf is close to collapse.
"as the shelf is close to collapse"
"as the shelf is close to collapse"
Collapse to where? Sink into the molten core? Get a grip!
Well, yes. Where do you think all that subducted crust goes over the eons. This is just a little quicker.
A lot of liquidity is required for a devastating tsunami.
What Percentage of that printed Yen will go to buy US Treasuries. ? and on the flip side, how much of the US Printed Dollars will go to buy Yen. ?
Is that an Oxy ?
No. That's called a smoothly oiled Central Banking network, working hard for the benefit of the little people...
No. It cannot be crushed and snorted to attain a momentary illusion of escape from reality. Do not try at home.
In fact, best not to try anywhere. Ultimately results in institutionalization, imprisonment or internment.
Too much Oxy or Debt.
Scooby-Doo says 'yikes.....ra rooow'
I too miss Scooby-dooby-doo!
Culled in the senseless digital massacres during ZH operation killing fields. Ambushed one Sunday morning by the regime, Scooby stood no chance as he was defenseless.
The brutality continues. Vailed and omnipresent.
Hate to be pendantic(*), but it was Shaggy who would say "yikes", and the proper spelling of Scooby's standard expression of alarm is "ruh row", not "ra rooow" as you have it.
As the Titanic sank, folks, the music continued playing, because those people had class, and so we shall maintain our dignity, our grammar, and the integrity of our shared culture even as we ourselves go down.
(*) OK, that's not entirely true. From time to time I LOVE to be pedantic.
And it is duly noted that the exemptions are so large you can drive a corrupt "Truck" through them.
This Party just got started.
Yeah, or it might have been disruptive, destabilizing and damaging to the system.
Our daily regulatory WTF?
Time to go buy a replacement Sony DVD player. Might as well load up one tube socks and briefs as well. :(
Should I buy a VHS as well?
Beta is better and cheaper !
Beta is betta! (you can add "bitches" if you prefer).
I really did enjoy my corded-remote, top-loading BetaMax player - back in the day.
I'll be shopping for a black and white big screen LED.
Do those come in 4D?
Reel to reel, beyotches!
8mm B&W Kodak projector(with old Bettie Page shorts)
Well .. smear my ears with jam and tie me to an ant hill ... looks like I am not the only one drinking tonight.
How AT&T fucked you over for 30 years.
Every government monopoly fucks consumers.
AT&T at that time was a government sanctioned monopoly.
If you had a telephone in your house on Monday you paid ten dollars a month. If on Tuesday you changed your service from residential to a business you paid thirty dollars a month.
Same phone, same wires, same address, you paid a higher rate.
Total insanity. Government intervention and regulation suppressed innovation more often than not.
The 1996 telecommunications act, with all of its faults, removed many of the legacy regulations which hampered broadband deployment.
Government regulation of telecommunications kept us analog decades longer than the technology available.
The new FCC rules concerning digital- Internet- will hamstring us back to those good old days.
Well, I'm not as think as you drunk I am...
And never forget, The smoker you drink, the player I am...
Good evening, AmeriKKKans!
Has your country ever elected an African origin president? Or perhaps even one of your small ethnic minorities that you discriminate against?
Why KKK us?
Seriously tell us which country you are from and let's look at your history of discrimination too.
Looks like he is just a hater.
People who criticise the usa should be willing to identify their country so we can evaluate the level of hypocrisy.
Long form birth certificate required, eh?
No. I just want to know how hypocritical the guy is slinging around KKK.
If he will tell us his country we can judge his level of hypocrisy.
Well, looks like that isn't happening; I guess you'll just have to face up to the facts instead of deflecting attention away from the point (ouch). I'd get used to that if I were you.
America: They can't take it, but they sure like to dish it out. (Chuck Norris excepted of course)
Would any matters of US historical record be altered even if you did get the chance to 'judge his schmeeevel of schmeeepocrisy'?
America: a place for Americans
why would you CARE about any of this race baiting bullshit?
You know that this notion of "racism" was invented like a century ago?
Why does anyone white feel the need to defend themselves against what was ALWAYS a meritless and irrelevant ad hominem?
With embossed stamp, dammit.
Right on RR, I told those asses at the Passport office to stick it.. I told them where I was born. Still waiting for that passport... Must be haters in foggy bottom.
From Canada where we are all skittle shitting unicorns who rain peace and love upon all who behold us.
Nothin' bad ever happened here... skittle?
I too am curious.what country you are from?
Maybe we could judge.your level of hypocrisy
if you would tell us.
Hey, y'all ferriners quit the pissin' an' moanin' 'bout America.Nobuddy else any where on this here planet gone done an' went elected a furriner minority race person to its highest elected office that we don't even know where he come from, but not here bein' his home.
Now that's the land of opportunity, God Damnit.
It should be obvious he lives southwest of Moscow.
Obviously he is from the South side of Chi-town. Nothing like homegrown..
A biflationary rocket ship! As japan's economy contracts the price of sashimi will be go parabolic.
Party like its 2099!
"Party like it's August 6, 1945"
We know that atleast it would clear our debt thingy. But I say let that party begin in DC! If theres no response from them withinin 1 nanosecond, then I think the party should be cancelled for everyone else.
Hello ZH! Long time lurker, first time poster. This shit is exciting! QE3 begins when everyone dumps their FRN reserves and by the looks of the DXY, should be any moment now. Didn't Japan say that they were doing this just after the tsunami anyway?
euro, yen, usd, gbp all have issues. order them up and get trading.
btw. 420 always works as the gotcha answer
420 is the answer.to a lot of things.
Except the munchies.
You can't eat (acapulco) gold. </sarc>
Now there is an idea for bartering... Not. that. I. would. know. anything. about. that... yeeeaaahhh.
Clearly the cannibistically inclined among us are most acutely impacted by food inflation. Nothing like being sorely cheeched and unable to purchase the required sustenance to satiate the munchybeast.
