    Shortages To Drive Commodity Prices MUCH Higher Over Next 5 Years

    Natural resource expert Rick Rule on the new supercycle
    by Adam Taggart

    Friday, May 21, 2021, 12:56 PM

Rick Rule has invested in hundreds of public and private mining, drilling & farming ventures over his long career as a natural resources investor.

And he sees a very bright future ahead for commodities and the companies that produce them.

IMPORTANT REMINDER

Wealthion is hosting is first-ever online conference on June 5th, featuring money & market experts such as Lacy Hunt, Grant Williams, Stephanie Pomboy, Lyn Alden, David Hunter, Matt Taibbi, Mike Maloney and many others.

The Early bird price of only $99 expires soon — so register today!

 

We look forward to seeing you there on June 5!

Yes, rising inflation and further money printing will add a tailwind to this trend, as will the expected increased demand from the many infrastructure projects the major nations of the world are embarking on.

But Rick sees limited supply as the most important factor that will drive prices higher from here. There simply will be too little tangible “stuff” to meet demand, and shortages will become increasingly common over the next five years.

Which is why now, more than ever, it’s important to partner with a financial advisor who understands the nature of the market risks in play as well as the opportunities, can craft an appropriate portfolio strategy for you given your needs, and apply sound risk management protection where appropriate:

Anyone interested in scheduling a free consultation and portfolio review with Mike Preston and John Llodra and their team at New Harbor Financial can do so by clicking here.

And if you’re one of the many readers brand new to Peak Prosperity over the past few months, we strongly urge you get your financial situation in order in parallel with your ongoing physical resilience preparations.

We recommend you do so in partnership with a professional financial advisor who understands the macro risks to the market that we discuss on this website. If you’ve already got one, great.

But if not, consider talking to the team at New Harbor. We’ve set up this ‘free consultation’ relationship with them to help folks exactly like you.

    In other words people are going to have a harder time finding the necessities to live and when they do it will cost more and more while they make less and less...and how a handful of people can profit off it making everything even more expensive and harder to get. Good on ya Mate!

    Shortages and higher prices

    Something unusual in North America where world resources usually converge to. In many other places of the world shortages are common place.

    I used to live in places where potatoes, flour, butter and black pepper were not readily available.

    Yes, there were profiteers and prices were high. You also had to develop good connections to get what you need when it arrives.

    One upside is that people learned to get only what was a necessity. May be we will learn to consume less, focus on the essential and leave aside the superfluous.

    One downside: the steep learning curve for some...

    Rick is one of The Best.

    Hope he said SOMETHING about Uranium.

     

    To me it looks like Silver is one of the most embattled commodities in human history.

    Everything BUT Silver is going up.

    Why doesn't the Strong Dollar Policy committee give people money to short Lumber, like 2x4's & Plywood ?

    I guess that could lead to a supply problem that would cripple industry.

    Wonder if something like that will happen to Silver ?

    I think the manipulation of prices may have damaged Silver Supply enough to force rational players, e.g. Apple, and 1/2 rational players, e.g. Tesla, to buy Silver, to protect their production lines.

     

    Is Eric Sprott the ONLY billionaire to put serious money into Silver ?

    take out of pasture a few hundred acres and plant in soybean’s, the profits are tempting.

    i can’t even sign this as a husband,father,and farmer.

    Silver at current prices drives mines to deliver, seller their stockpiles.  Holding prices down.  A case (I hear from experts) of equilibrium between price and ability of producers to sell at a nice profit.

    Uranium is dead money.  No new reactors, some still being decommissioned.  Too much supply stockpiled...  It will take a serious turn of events of new low cost and safe reactors... blabla, a decade or more.   ;(

    Inflation or Deflation

    This is a must watch video:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZjppyV0YqM4

    Steven Van Metre explains the primary mechanics of inflation and backs it with really good charts and data.  We may have deflation just around the corner.
