  1. Look here you folks, Europe will phase out all fossil fuel cars 2040 latest, in some countries 2030. These will be replaced by electric cars. Now an electric car is simply copper wires. Thus the price of copper will follow suit. It will rise exponentially to meet the demand. I expect a think tank to be sitting somewhere in Lusaka and modeling to optimize all possible procedures to maximize on the profits therefrom for national building. This is a one in a life time chance for Zambia to get back and become a high income economy. Read this properly, “HIGH” and not “MIDDLE”. Folks!!! Hello! Wake up. Its morning already!!!
