More to come... I'll be full of lots of rantings I'm sure..
but wanted to share my new favorite toy.
with all of the discussions of Commodity prices and inflation, I happened upon this super-duper rad Alibaba commodity price by supplier by contract page. you can see by different Asian countries, and for all different commodities including Diesel, which (rant #1, without any research yet)... seems to be heavily regulated by the Chinese government, check it out, NO/zero/zip fluctuation in price, hmmm?! There are also food prices, check out broccoli prices in the past week, Yikes... food inflation = demonstrations = revolutions?! (and having been in china, i know that the Chinese really do like broccoli. If these were US numbers, the rise in price wouldn't be a big issue, since we don't like veggies ;-) )
So here is the main page.... i gotta get back to 'real' work.... but more to come... i promise (read threaten)
