Inflation and economics growth

After a couple great discussions on the possibility of inflation creeping into the US we kick off today with Rick and his doubts on inflation. He points to increases in minimum wage and select companies in the US that are not actually helping the average citizen. We also discuss what would be needed to get the overall US economy back on track. On this point Rick is a little more optimistic.

    So, Rick considers inflation to me rising prices as opposed to an increase in the money supply, which undoubtedly already has inflation.
    Where I live, house prices, commercial property, rents of both and food is certainly inflating. So is medical and all kinds of insurance.
    I’m not sure about his thoughts on gov’t spending freeing up capital. A big % of gov’t spending is debt, which I don’t define as capital. JMO

      This is a long Corporate Review with the officers of Jubilee Platinum (JLP.L) (JUBPF) – who is processing Platinum & Chrome dumps on 2 near-term projects, has the largest block of Platinum not being developed at present as a flagship project, and they have 2 other deals in the works. It sounds like they have a number of milestones they expect to cross in 2017.

      I’ve steered clear of them for some time, but have to admit I’m impressed with their path forward and believe they will start to turn their ship around this year. It takes them a while to get into the meat and potatoes on this talk…. but overall, a very impressive overview:

        I just listened to part of it again, and there was some interesting macro commentary on the state of current day Platinum mining in both the Eastern and Western Limbs in S. Africa, on the use of Palladium and Platinum in batteries for EVs as supply demand beyond merely catalytic converters, and they touch on the Chrome market fundamental supply/demand backdrop (which is rarely discussed).
