Curse or cure? Revisiting state, capital and resources
Brueckner, Martin, Durey, Angela, Mayes, Robyn, & Pforr, Christof (2014) Curse or cure? Revisiting state, capital and resources. In Brueckner, Martin, Durey, Angela, Mayes, Robyn, & Pforr, Christof (Eds.) Resource Curse or Cure? On the Sustainability of Development in Western Australia. Springer, Heidelberg, Germany, pp. 273-290.
WA’s experience, as portrayed in this volume, not only highlights the changeable nature of the mining industry, the volatility of global commodity markets and the impact of global capital on people and place, it also draws into question the promise of lasting value derived from resource development as currently practiced. It is in this context that Chapter 18 revisits WA's resource boom and assesses the sustainability of resource-led development in the state, to arrive at an answer to the question of ‘curse or cure?’. Opening up the discourse beyond the dominant developmentalist narrative invites discussion on new perspectives of economic sustainability that include well-being, equity and the protection of people, culture and place.
Impact and interest:
Citation counts are sourced monthly from and citation databases.
These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
