Volution that powered these economies created a voracious demand for raw materials and created the need to go far beyond their native countriesSo too is China's resource rush today Although still in its early stages already the breadth of China's operation is awesome and seemingly unstoppable China's global charge for commodities is a story of China's uest to secure its claims on resource assets and to guarantee the flow of inputs needed to continue to drive economic development Moyo an expert in global commodities markets explains the implications of China's resource grab in a world of diminishing resource. I enjoyed Winner Take All as an economics primer where the commodities markets are concerned; there was much attention given to such things as speculation in the commodities markets when and how governments should intervene and what such intervention does to commodity pricesChina almost seemed to be a secondary focus after the basic explanations of commodity markets although such explanations to a layman such as myself were invaluable to understanding the overall thesis of the book Where I found the book lacking was in its forecasts for the future The author presents several scenarios for dealing with the coming commodity scarcities that focus only on currently available technologies GM foods for example This may be a practical approach but if we are discussing the coming decades it is important at least in my view to discuss emerging and developing technologies such as vertical urban farming Still in the conceptual phases it is feasible that by 2050 when the earth's population reaches nine billion this method of food production will be put to useAlso little mention is made of alternative energy sources such as wind and solar which China is heavily investing in and how in future decades these might curb China's insatiable appetite for oil and coal These issues may be slightly off topic but I found myself asking these uestions consistently throughout my reading As a result the book felt incomplete in its assessment of what is a global threat to humanityOverall this is a worthwhile read very well written and researched It is largely apolitical and offers an honest assessment of China it's strengths and weaknesses as well as geopolitics as a whole Recommended as a good starting point to understand the complexities of the coming commodity shortages Crybaby Falls raw materials and created the need to go far beyond their native countriesSo too is China's Criminal Intent resource The Sharpshooter's Secret Son rush today Although still in its early stages already the breadth of China's operation is awesome and seemingly unstoppable China's global charge for commodities is a story of China's uest to secure its claims on Criminal Intent resource assets and to guarantee the flow of inputs needed to continue to drive economic development Moyo an expert in global commodities markets explains the implications of China's The Daddy List resource grab in a world of diminishing The Cowboy Collection: Caitlyn's Prize / Madison's Children / A Cowboy's Plan / This Cowboy's Son / The Horseman's Secret / The Brother Returns resource.
