The Plot Thickens for the Mining Giants

Sure why wouldn’t Australia approve of Chinalco’s stake in Rio Tinto. Australia’s wealth has grown like a weed thanks to it’s biggest customer, China, and China’s buying of Australia’s commodities. So why not play buddy buddy with you’re biggest customer? Sure, other “developing countries” are growing too…and while this might sound awkward referring to a commie country like China…China’s actually good for it’s money. You don’t just want a customer that pays, but pays steadily and that you know they’re good for it. Some of the politically unstable countries? I dunno. Countries (well country- U.S.A.) with debt growing like a tumor? Not too sure either. But China, a country that’s growing fast and steadily, and strategizing around the world, such as with African nations, to secure it’s future growth, and with national reserves growing up the wazoo- just on interest alone. Yeah, I’d play buddy buddy with China too. It’s like in the old days how a king would send over his sister or daughter to marry another country’s royalty. In this case, I guess the princess’ name is Rio Tinto. But then eventually (well after a year or so) the two kingdom’s would be at war again and the sacrificial princess be killed. Let’s see how this modern remake plays out!

State-owned Aluminum Corp of China (Chinalco), backed by U.S. peer Alcoa Inc (AA.N: Quote, Profile, Research, Stock Buzz), began amassing shares this year with the aim of taking up to 14.9 percent of Rio, the target of a $127 billion takeover bid from rival BHP Billiton (BHP.AX: Quote, Profile, Research, Stock Buzz)
