Metals Meltdown Podcast

China's slowing economy 'zombifies' its steel industry, as optimism creeps into US scrap



Chris Davis, Peter Brennan, & Sebastian Lewis

In the inaugural Metals Meltdown podcast, Platts Men of Steel Chris Davis, Peter Brennan, and Sebastian Lewis lift the proverbial iron lid on the economically challenging global landscape for metals, and tell us how raw materials are impacting pricing and the outlook for finished steel goods. Amid tough times for construction and falling power use, China expert Seb leans upon his George A. Romero knowledge to analyse the prospects for China's 'Living Dead' steel industry.

Chris puts his annoyance at the New England Patriots NFL team behind him to look at the key trends in US scrap, as Peter drapes himself in the EU flag and looks at the raft of anti-dumping measures and market 'protectionism' impacting European markets.
