(p.10) 1 Resource Competition, Mineral Scarcity, and Economic Statecraft
China and the Geopolitics of Rare Earths

Resources have been essential inputs in the world economy and at the epicenter of technological developments. There are different theories of resource scarcity, but uninterrupted access to resources is vital to modern economies, especially since modern technological applications demand resource inputs from across the globe. Physical depletion and flow disruption, therefore, both pose a series of challenges for policymakers and industry. The examination of China’s use of economic statecraft in the case of the rare-earth crisis and the corresponding response of the European Union, the United States, and Japan provide a salient example of how resource dominance can spill over into global power politics.

Keywords:   resource competition, economic statecraft, scarcity, flow disruption, inputs, depletion
