McCain says the US economy is “fundamentally sound.” Joe Biden says he could walk all the way to Lansing without meeting anyone who agrees. So I decided to find out how far I could walk without finding anyone who thinks the mining economy is not fundamentally sound.
Turns out not very far. Maybe the problem is that I am in Vancouver in an office populated by junior mining companies. Maybe the problem is that most of my friends and their families are associated with the mining industry.
