Copper: The Essential Metal: Supply and Demand
Here’s an article I read on LewRockwell.com – http://lewrockwell.com/rep3/copper-essential-metal2.html
Somehow I’ve ended up talking about copper quite a bit and this graphic from the Visual Capitalist does a good job of succinctly explaining the supply and demand outlook for copper. I’ll have to check back with Visual Capitalist, I like the format of this.
Basically save your copper pennies because the long-term outlook for copper is good as emerging economies around the world uh, emerge. It says that China’s per-capita copper consumption will double by 2025 (their total consumption is pretty significant already).
