Food for Thought - Michael Wesley presentation

Mineral resources play a role in international affairs that far outweighs the attention paid to the sector by policy makers and strategic thinkers. Modern societies are becoming ever more dependent on mineral resources but increasingly less self-sufficient in their production, making access to stable and reasonably priced resources central to their functioning. And yet there is little awareness of the general dynamics, trends and forces governing the global production and trade in strategic resources. Developing such an awareness is particularly important for Australians, given our continent’s rich endowment in many of the resources that the global economy needs.
