Greetings all. Eight years ago my unorthodox Practical International Political Economics journey started underground working in a mine site for a sub-contractor. I could not figure out how and why they were making money. Everything about their business (from an inside view) did not make sense. I enquired through my bosses to educate them on how I thought they should be making money. My boss responded with unreasonable angry. It was then that my undivided interest in the workings of the global mining industry structure was born. Since then I have understood a negative force has been at work in the mining industry for a very long time. So long infact that it is almost unrecognisable to the modern miner. Travelling all over Australia interview/discussing industry particulars I began to come across the same mentality/undertone. I let my mind and study drift where ever it wanted to. And in that process my understanding became clearer and clearer. It eventually got to the point where I just could not prove myself thoroughly wrong (mining was preventing supply from an angle never previously exposed). I pressed my understanding of mining industry players including large and small miners, contractors, government mining researchers, independent mining innovation organisations from all over the world. However there was a piece to the puzzle missing. Economics of supply. I found my answer when BHP Billiton announced it was no longer going to expand the Olympic Dam Mine in South Australia. A reporter made the comment that copper prices would now have to adjust. And in that sentence the pin dropped! The companies I had identified were engaging in prevention of supply in a way that is hidden from everyone view and utterly brilliant. But, and it is a big BUT. I have an issue I cannot answer. I have discovered a solution to the global economic recession situation I cannot implement. I have restructured the economic foundation that the rest of the global economy is derived from. Nearly every value added process will be made more rewarding due to my changes. But there does not seem to be a Government, NGO, Intellectual, Global Leader capable of taking the first and only step. Can this forum provide the solutions to this global solution choking point?
Removing vested interests that choke human and global progress.
IS "Practical International Political Economics" even a profession? I believe it is now if it was not before.
