Eye opening account of a race for what remains of the world's resources. A great topic of discussion, this book presents facts on large investment firms and governments razing the world over for rare earths, peak 'soil' in Africa, and arctic circle mining operations. Quick read, and chapters 2-5 were dry economics. If nothing, read the last half of the book.
Many of the investments cited began after the great financial crisis of 2008, leading me to believe the race for what's left is often investors taking advantage of bargain basement commodity prices. For this reason, and the eventual dated nature of the material, I am only giving three stars. The author presents a strong one sided case. I would have preferred to see a little more debate given his keen intellect.
