From Exchange Invest 2219: 30th, November 2021: Tuesday

For those who are fascinated by the idea of a cartel whose control of a genuinely liquid asset holds the world to ransom over their breakfast table…

Of course, OPEC is a mere amateur in this regard. Rather the laureate remains with The Quebec Maple Syrup Producers, a government-sponsored cartel representing 11,000 producers responsible for 73 per cent of global supply.

Thus, whereas Joe Brezhnev caused an oil price rise with his dumb idea that releasing a couple of days supply from the already depleted US emergency crude oil supply would make a difference, the QMSP is releasing over 22,000 tonnes of their glutinous pancake/waffle accompaniment in an effort to stymie a currently tight, inflationary market.

PLY: There was me thinking it was just a failure to comprehend the Greek alphabet. Anyway, presumably now we only have max 9 more variations to go until omega which is surely the point even the control freaks of Covid politics have to utter the “endemic” concept to their lexicon?

Brexit: Done

As mentioned previously in Exchange Invest Daily:

London Rivals Abandon Hope Of Post-Brexit City Exodus


Brussels’ Bid To Standardise Its Rules Is A Gift To The City

The Telegraph

PLY: Bigots, Blobsters & Bar room Blitherers proclaimed the death of London’s financial centre upon Brexit. If ever confirmation was required, 5 long years later, their utility is at a level beneath horse poop mouthwash. Exchange Invest noted there would not be anything like the exodus proclaimed by these panic promoters long before the great referendum of 2016.
