Democracy or Wealth?

H'm...if it really is a dilemma, perhaps Mongolia is right at least to think twice about which way to jump.  On the other hand - call me an old cynic - but I find it difficult to imagine that the mining companies will ultimately walk away from this untapped potential even if that awkward creature democracy does hinder their progress for a while.

Sorry, Peter - the Guardian seems to have removed this story, which is odd as they normally leave things archived for a long time. But then it was a rather tendentious piece for a normally fairly scrupulous and liberal-leaning newspaper. Reuters cover the same story at http:/www.reuters.com/article/innovationNews/idUSL0873445120071108
