It is a good thing.

Apparently manufacturing in China didnt contract further but India is expanding. Indian economy is about a third of China's in real terms and has the same characteristics of the U.S economy where the consumer drives demand.

This is very good news! Maybe the best news that we have had in the development of Kami!

Most people on the board do not know who Danny Willlims is...google him.. He is extremely tough and gets things done. He is the most connected man in Eastern Canada.

It sure can't hurt to have these kind of political connections!

Meanwhile, ADV is back above $3.

On that Wikipedia page, it mentions the ABC campaign, which seemed to be a rift between the Newfie conservatives and the Stephen Harper-led national conservatives. Is it good to be hiring one of the persons who led that ABC effort?

I might be missing something (does the federal government need to give approvals for ADV to get access to the railroad and to power?), but from what I know, it seems to me like the government that they need most on their side is the local NF/L government, not the Federal government in Ottawa, so I think that should be fine.

Now are we still worried about a china crash?

We want altius to be taking advantage of the non sense that is in the market place....they may hit on all cylinders this year when the "china crash worry" subsides and commodities stabilize...especially if they have loaded up with some or all of the $300m in cash equivalents (including Alderon)...quiet is good for now.

Not sure about China (they have enough resources to keep going for the longest time - much longer than the U.S or Europe) but the Indian government came out and said they will reduce interest rates to increase growth. They are saying they are confident of 8-9% growth for the next ten years. You know my take on these forecasts but generally speaking India is coming off a very low base, much lower than China.

I still believe China resource consumption is not sustainable if they stop to be the factory for the world or if bunch of jobs come back to the U.S

This along with talk of a tax in australia will bring more attention to Labrador, Alderon and  Altius. The world will look for different alternatives...Labrador is proven and has a freindly investment climate.
