In a recent article ‘Chinese investment along One Belt One Road Revealed’ Finbarr Bermingham discusses Chinese investment along the new Silk Road.
“The One Belt One Road (OBOR) initiative is the single most ambitious infrastructure plan in the world today, and data seen by GTR shows that over the third quarter of 2015, the vast proportion of China’s governmental loans were disbursed along the route.”
In ‘A Journey Along Copper’s New Silk Road’ Dave Forest gives an insight into China’s move on copper and gold, and perhaps a taste of things to come, along the OBOR…
“By the looks of things, investment along this “highway of the future” will be a major trend in mining and exploration over the next decade.”
The First Industrial Revolution started with technological innovation driving the slow industrialization of the United Kingdom in the 18th century which merged into the Second Industrial Revolution around 1850. The start of the second industrial revolution was marked by a transition of technological leadership from Britain to the United States and Germany.
What is happening today is not being driven by technological innovation or technological leadership, what’s driving China’s economy today is urbanization, population growth and consumerism.
Consider what’s taking place, and the result…
- A global shift in trade with China by far the biggest beneficiary.
- The exporting of Chinese current industrial/consumer overcapacity to trading partners along ‘old is new again’ trading routes.
- All road, rail and shipping lines leading back to China with much of the world’s resources on it to build more industrial and consumer oriented manufacturing.
China becomes the hub, no let’s change that from CHINA BECOMES, to CHINA IS, FOR MOST OF THE WORLD, it’s industrial/consumer manufacturing center.
This will be accomplished by using vast amounts of the world’s resources, that China controls through infrastructure lending and off-take agreements for resources.
The capture of the world’s resources by China, the country’s aspirations to become the world’s leading manufacturer and exporter of finished goods, should be on all our radar screens.
This fascinating process, being played out on the world’s stage, is on my radar screen.
Is it on yours?
If not, maybe it should be.
