Winner Take All - China's Race for Resources and What it Means for us - D. Moyo

  • This location is shown only to members

This book was selected at one of the very first sessions, before we started using the poll function.  As it was only available in hardback, we have had to wait until now to post it for discussion.

 

It was my suggestion and therefore I will be hosting this as an additional session.

 

Here is some more information, taken from that website that is taking over our shopping habits and changing the face of the high street...

Our planet's resources are running out. The media bombards us with constant warnings of impending shortages of fossil fuels, minerals, arable land, and water and the political Armageddon that will result as insatiable global demand far outstrips supply. But how true is this picture?

In Winner Take All, Dambisa Moyo cuts through the misconceptions and noise surrounding resource scarcity with a penetrating analysis of what really is at stake. China, Moyo reveals, has embarked on one of the greatest commodity rushes in history. Tracing its breathtaking quest for resources - from Africa to Latin America, North America to Europe - she examines the impact it is having on us all, and its profound implications for our future.
