Global growth is imperative to the success of industrial metals miners like Freeport-McMoRan Copper & Gold  (NYSE: FCX  ) and Southern Copper Corp (NYSE: SCCO  ) . Unfortunately, the past two years have seen a steep decline in industrial spending due to financial downturns across the globe. Adding to this decrease in demand, capital spending has been aimed at increasing supply. BHP Billiton (NYSE: BHP  ) and Rio Tinto (NYSE: RIO  ) are currently working on water desalination in Chile that should help boost production in the mining-heavy South American nation. Tune in below for more information from analyst Taylor Muckerman on projects like these and China's plans for growth moving forward.

    My parents are trying to find a company that does air conditioner installation, and this has some great insights. They haven't had a lot of success yet, and just barley went out of town so they won't find one for a good month or so. I'm trying to help them out, but I have no idea what I'm looking for. After seeing this site and though, I feel much more confident about it. Thanks so much for sharing this, it was very helpful.
