Rare Earths Shakedown

CBI

 News today that Baotou Steel Rare Earth Group will "suspend production" of rare earths for a month . . . to stabilize falling prices.  (see  Chuin-wei Yap's article in the Wall Street Journal at  http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424052970203897404578076030548046800.html) 

 

This doesn't sound like a price-driven decision . . . the price of rare earths has gone up 10 times since 2009 . . . this is more like a shakedown of the global IT industry.

Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) presidential candidate Tsai Ing-wen (蔡英文) is a remarkably talented person. However, don’t take my word for it. It is a view secretly shared by US diplomats in Taipei whose job it is to gather intelligence on Taiwanese politics.
