215K. Little or a lot?

December 4, 2013 (Chinavestor) November non-far payroll numbers came out to better than expected 215,000. This is a good news. Taking a step back and looking the overall jobs market reveals a different picture though. The US economy lost 8.67 million jobs in the 2008-2010 recession and so far has added back 6.81 million since the summer of 2010. Considering that there is another 903 thousand jobs gained in the three months spanning from February to April, 2010, we are still short by 1.84 million. Assuming a healthy 200K news jobs a month, it will take another year of constant growth to get back to square one. Considering that total workforce has been increasing, unemployment will remain high for the next few years even if we produce jobs at a 200k clip.

Aluminum ore mining industry in China

September 18, 2012 (Chinavestor) Market overview: China is not rich in bauxite ore resource. China’s overall bauxite ore exploration only accounts for less than 10% of global total. In addition, most of domestic bauxite resources contain low-content ratio. With rapid growth of economic development, China has been importing large amounts of bauxite for the past 10 years.

Because large domestic bauxite demands, China is not expected to export bauxite in recent years. In contrast, bauxite imports have grown rapidly since 2002. As shown in the diagram below, the imports/demand ratio keep growing from 2002 to 2007, then reach a peak in 2008, with over half of domestic demand satisfied by import. However, because of global financial crisis, bauxite price dropped from $63.80 per ton in 2008 to $35.70 per ton in 2009. This caused a decline of import value from 2008 to 2009. After the 2009, imports/demand ratio becomes relative steady, and expected grow back to around 39.3% in 2012.
