Communicator 1972 Oct; 3(5):5-6
Based on the trend of the 20-year period 1950-70, domestic primary mineral demand will exceed production by $64 billion (1970 dollars) in the year 2000. Several options are open to avoid future balance- of-payments crises or reduced living standards. The options briefly discussed are recycle more mineral scrap, increase exports, increase the rate of growth of mineral production, and decrease the rate of growth of consumption.
