Economic and social consequences of resource exploitation: the case of tin mining and rural communities in the Kinta Valley, Malaysia



Economic and social consequences of resource exploitation: the case of tin mining and rural communities in the Kinta Valley, Malaysia



Kajian Malaysia 10(2): 82-84



This paper is a summary of a thesis presented at the University of Leicester (UK) in 1992. It is concerned with land resource allocation between agriculture and mining for tin ore in the Kinta Valley of Malaysia. Although conventional calculations show that mining is very profitable compared with farming over the short run, the financial profitability of mining agricultural land becomes questionable in the long run.
