Example text

After the initial upward impact of the new resource development, the negative impacts associated with falling mineral prices, price volatility, Dutch disease, corruption and poor policy decisions come into play. By the time that the economy has adjusted, it is behind where it would have been without the resources windfall. It then begins to grow at the same rate as it would have without the mineral windfall. This is the key assumption – that it is behind where it would have been. Economic activity Negative impacts of External market forces, Internal economic stresses, Distorted policy making With resource windfall THE RESOURCE CURSE HYPOTHESIS It became apparent in the late 1970s that the economic performance of several developing nations with large mineral and energy endowments, measured particularly in terms of real GDP growth, did not coincide with traditional expectations.

Shareholders count on mining company executives producing healthy profits, while the broader community expects them to be good corporate citizens, whether at local, regional or national level. Part of this latter expectation relates to environmental management, part to contributing to local communities and regions, and part to paying taxes and royalties. Mining company workforces anticipate competitive working conditions in the often remote and difficult conditions in which mines and oil wells are located.

The relative size of the resources windfall and the level of poverty and inequality are inversely related. How a nation develops its mineral energy resources will depend on the interaction of these positive and negative forces. In the case of Chile, it seems clear that the nation has been able to perform well in each of the factor areas that affect the development process12. Some other notable recent contributions to the discussion about public policy have been from the World Bank mining group and Richard Auty (the former seem to ascribe more to a resource blessing view of minerals, while the latter sees them more as a curse).
