dc.identifier.citationBrueckner, M. and Durey, A. and Mayes, R. and Pforr, C. 2014. Curse or cure?: Revisiting state, capital and resources, in Brueckner, M. and Durey, A. and Mayes, R. and Pforr, C. (ed), Resource curse or cure?: On the sustainability of development in Western Australia, pp. 273-290. Heidelberg: Springer.

WA’s experience, as portrayed in this volume, not only highlights the changeable nature of the mining industry, the volatility of global commodity markets and the impact of global capital on people and place, it also draws into question the promise of lasting value derived from resource development as currently practiced. It is in this context that Chapter 18 revisits WA's resource boom and assesses the sustainability of resource-led development in the state, to arrive at an answer to the question of ‘curse or cure?’. Opening up the discourse beyond the dominant developmentalist narrative invites discussion on new perspectives of economic sustainability that include well-being, equity and the protection of people, culture and place.
