China's growing carbon "Footprint" & its impact

Recommended Posts

An interesting dis-connect in this discussion between Al Korelin & John Kaiser

podcast : http://www.kereport.com/DailyRadio/Daily071307.mp3

+ A falling dollar

+ Rising energy prices

+ Rising prices of imported goods


Today's easy times of Americans spending their enormous free time watching videos and playing around with YouTube, will give way to a world where everything they buy will be more expensive and they will have to do real work to survive

"I couldnt agree with you more."

Jing Ulrich, of JPMorgan in Hong Kong, believes higher farm prices in China have become “structural” rather than cyclical because of declining stocks of arable land and water problems.


On top of that, local manufacturers, who have long struggled to pass on the cost of higher wages and raw materials, are gaining pricing power. “China’s days of exporting deflation are coming to an end,” she says..../
