Raw Material Economics by Charles Walters Jr.
Physical facts, not abstractions, preside over the exchange equation ... This makes agriculture the flywheel and the balancewheel of the economy.
A NORM primer.
Softcover 163 pages.
This book is a primer that makes clear that the only economics that count must square well with the observed facts. Those facts say that values placed on raw materials as they enter the economic cycle govern the earned income of any economy.
Raw Materials Economics is a codification of NORM (National Organization for Raw Materials) thinking. Charts, tables and a special summary by the late Vince Rossiter make Raw Materials Economics a history of the past and a blue print for the future. If you’ve wanted to gain a better understanding of raw materials economics, this book is a great way to begin.
