    Copper is up from about $2.70 per pound at the beginning of the year to $3.16 today, about 17%.

    Lithium and Cobalt - used in the batteries of smart phones.

    My previous boss (married into a Muslim family) said that was his Peace Plan for the Middle East..... fly over and drop bacon everywhere. They will start eating it and say " Hey this is crap is excellent! we've been lied to all along" and they will stop fighting and eat pork....
    Just because it is legal, does not mean it is right.....
