The World of Metals examines the nature of metal supply, demand, markets, and trade, and then uses this information to explain the behavior of metal markets (such as the long-run trends in metal prices and their short-run volatility). Here too the changing location of metal production and consumption is explored along with the underlying forces behind the observed changes. The book then focuses a variety of public policy issues associated with the production and use of metals. Among the topics explored are depletion and the long-run availability of metals, mining and sustainable development, the resource curse and the Dutch Disease, and economic rents and mining taxation.
