Newspaper headlines and media commentators scream warnings of the impending doom nearly every day--shortages of arable land, clashes over water, and the political Armageddon as global demand for energy in the form of fossil fuels far outstrips any possible supply. The picture painted is bleak, and the possible impact of commodities markets on how we live is far-reaching, but our grasp of the details and the mega shifts in the commodity space remains blurred. There's so much noise surrounding resource scarcity and China's emerging dominance in commodities that we risk complacency.

Overturning our assumptions, bestselling author Dambisa Moyo charts the commodity dynamics that the world will face over the next several decades, and the implications of China's rush for resources across all regions of the world, from Africa to Latin America, from North America to Europe to Australia.

Partly about China, but without any insight from within China, and partly about the world's resource restraints a la Club of Rome. Lots of statistics which are not memorable. Does connect some dots.
