The mining boom hangover is about to begin

Australia will soon witness the full effects of China’s shift away from coal, and mining investors who have been dining on fat dividends may be among the first to feel the pain.

I do not believe Australians fully understand the seriousness of what is happening in the global mining business. Right now it is the Australian mining investment boom that is delivering the good economic figures that Treasurer Joe Hockey boasts about. Next year and in 2016 we will see a rapid decline in mining investment and, worse still, bad news on the mining front is still emerging from many quarters. Mining will still underpin Australia but the huge investment boost is over.
