Rick Rule Shares His Insight on Copper

CEO of Sprott US Holdings, Rick Rule, talks about the copper business

According to Rule, copper supply is becoming constrained. He explains how this is because of an extended period of lower prices and low investment in a productive capacity. 

However, he says prices are set at the intersection of supply and demand.

“Copper mining is a very good business and the metal is really a barometer for the advancement of mankind,” Rule says.
