Talking about the future – Is Mankind Heading for a Raw Material Crisis?

by A Arbatov, I Amirov, A Skakai
Progress Publishers, Moscow, 1989
Paperback – 184 pages

In the 1970s, the world community was once again confronted with the questions: is mankind threatened by a raw materials crisis?, will the world economy be able to cope with this problem in the future? There is no simple answer to these questions. The prospects for the development of the world resource situation are dependent on a vast range of objective factors and potential limitations. The efficient and mutually beneficial use of the planet's materials and resources base in the interests of the entire human race, the application of promising technologies and the exploitation of non-traditional sources of energy are the avenues that would allow mankind to view the road ahead with optimism.
