I just had a great conversation with David Lin regarding the economic trends I see in motion right now that impact commodities prices. As seems obligatory these days, there are a lot of big macro questions. We can't ignore those, but I did my best to bring those down to the level of what I as a resource speculator am willing to bet on now, and what I'm not. We also covered what I'd need to see to concede that I got the macro wrong and need to revise my outlook and shopping list.
