    Well, Lorax, you seem to have inspired Peter Martin to even greater heights of FX folly…

  2. I abuse him daily on his blog. I've responded here already.

    Poor Pete, he's a bit of a lost cause, he likes to quote Adam Carr and Craig James. Enough said.

  3. I like to abuse everyone on an equal basis, always arguing the other side. I mean, where's the fun in agreeing with everything a blogger says?

    Now then, tell me when exactly this commodities cycle will turn? Adam Carr and the permabulls have been right for 18 months now. I buy your arguments. I buy Pettis' story, but the reality is, China keeps buying our dirt in ever larger quantities and for ever higher prices.

    Are you still going to be posting about the inevitable commodities downturn 10 years from now?
