This draws on a paper that I presented to the Australian Agricultural and Resource Economics Society’s Annual Conference in Sydney in January 2006: ‘The China Resources Boom’. The ideas presented here are expanded in a forthcoming book with Ligang Song, ‘China’s Test of Limits to Growth’ (Oxford University Press, forthcoming 2012). I am grateful for the assistance of Sui Lay Tan in preparing the figures, to Veronica Webster in preparing the manuscript for publication and to two anonymous referees for helpful suggestions.
