The New Resource Game in the Indo-Pacific

Posted in Events by Kate Archdeacon on August 22nd, 2012

23 August , 2012
7:30 pmto8:30 pm

From the history the 17th Century Nutmeg Wars between the British and the Dutch in Indonesia, through the 19th century Opium Wars between the British, French and Chinese, and past the 20th century Oil Wars between the US and the Arabs, the tactics of the New Game players have not changed much because the market imperative forbids it.

In the markets of resources and raw materials, Australia depends for its survival in competition with the interests of Russia, China, India, and several African states. If these market dynamics do not make the level playing field which Australian governments claim they expect and demand from the global trading system; if force, fraud, corruption and subversion are pervasive in deciding who wins, what then are the scenarios for Australia’s future as a resource exporter?

What do Australian policymakers need to know and do to say in the game?

What lessons, what demands do Indian policymakers insist Canberra should learn, or else?

About the speaker:
