The first 18 to 20 minutes or so are generalized stuff, which although good may be of less interest to mineheads. People who want to know about how mining in Ecuador is seen as developing by the guy that actually runs the shop should move to 18 minutes onwards….and then listen to the guy blow your lefty-anti-biz prejudices out of the water. Essential listening matter for anyone with the vaguest interest in Ecuador mining world.
For what it’s worth, I sent the link to the radio interview to subscibers before the bell this morning as one part of a Flash update. Here’s some feedback from subscriber DL:
Thanks for the Correa BBC interview. He’s no dummy. I have always liked the guy’s smart like a fox ways and what he is trying to do. Guys like him are an important step to establishing lasting change that should take root this time as it’s happening at a time when the U.S. is preoccupied to say the least. However If there’s one thing SA is good for it’s change. Two steps forward one step back. I really think this century will in many ways belong to SA and not just Asia.
