This is a primer that makes clear that the only economics that count must square well with the observed facts. Those facts say that values placed on raw materials as they enter the economic cycle govern the earned income of any economy. Raw Materials Economics is a codification of NORM (National Organization for Raw Materials) thinking. Charts, tables and a special summary by the late Vince Rossiter make Raw Materials Economics a history of the past and a blue print for the future. If you’ve wanted to gain a better understanding of raw materials economics, this book is a great way to begin. Copyright 1991, softcover, 163 pages.
