Deloitte: Putting the Pedal to the Metal!

Borrowing a page from my husband’s blog Spend Matters (I swear I do wonder what his key terms are in his Google settings), I love it when people send us links and articles to interesting stories that they feel might be “blog worthy”. I feel it is my special duty in particular to bring your attention to this item that a MetalMiner reader forwarded to us, because this involves my former employer, Deloitte (I worked there after Andersen was shuddered). So it was with great delight that I read about some entertainment troup that was hired by Deloitte as the evening get-up for last week’s Steel Success Strategies conference in The Big Apple.

Now Deloitte is not a firm that I think of when I think about the cutting edge but I suppose the “heat” from the conference called for a new approach. Not to minimize the real fireworks from the conference itself, we have two posts on this subject, one that just appeared and one coming out later this week. And though  we won’t be promoting  metal bustierres and funky welding tanks, we promise a worthwhile read.

Last week I had a chance to pour over our blog statistics. And, we’re happy to report that traffic is steadily growing. But what I really like to track is what people are reading….what gets a lot of visitors and what doesn’t. So it will likely be no surprise that you all are reading everything and anything that has to do with ‘pricing’. Whether it is copper, metal prices in general, steel or aluminum, our top 30 pieces of content are mostly comprised of price trends. We’re also happy to know that some of our more outrageous and silly articles are equally well-read such as Amy’s biking mishap, my Iron Man prototype suggestion and Stuart’s “urban mining” piece.

And though it is a lot more fun to write the lighter pieces, I thought a light intro into a controversial topic might make for good reading as we prepare for the long holiday weekend.

So here is the topic: Why are steel prices so high? (more…)
