How the Economics of Rare Metals Really Add up Jun 4, 2015 £15.00
The Register’s favourite economist and rare metals miner Tim Worstall will highlight the absurd economics underlying the technology industry by taking us on a journey around the world’s rare metal’s hotspots.
We keep being told that we’re about to run out of all these lovely tech metals and others. This is in fact incorrect. There’s no metal or mineral we’re going to run out of in any human timescale. The predictions of imminent Ecodammerung just aren’t correct, and Tim will show you why.
The doors will be open from 5.30pm, and we’ll be kicking off the talk proper at 7.00. After 40 minutes we’ll have break for whatever refreshments take your fancy. We’ll then have formal Q&A for another 40 minutes. It’s your event and we’ll head in direction the audience wants us to go.
After that, you’re welcome to stick around and continue the conversation as long as you want – or at least till closing time.
I believe there might be pork pies as well.
