NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- I was talking with Jim Cramer today about the Citi note that claims an end to the commodity "supercycle" begun in early 2003. Ed Morse, the head commodity guru for Citi, now sees a fundamental pressure on the commodity sector and a multi-year bear market in the works.I sat down with Jim and tried to debunk this idea for several reasons. First and foremost, there is still a financial balloon that continues to float higher prices of commodities, even though there is a temporary slowdown of growth, both here in the U.S. and in emerging markets.
