Graphite Supplier

China - a graphite supplier which learns from its mistakes

A clever man learns from his mistakes, a wise man learns from the mistakes of others. As an international graphite supplier, China has learned from both. Towards the end of the 20th century, China gained a substantial boost to its foreign-currency reserves by selling off large quantities of rare earths and graphite. While this obviously provided a benefit in terms of immediate financial liquidity, it had the effect of causing prices to fall and also encouraged hoarding on the part of the buyers. Now, China is clearly aiming to manage its reserves of graphite as valuable assets and to make sure its own interests are served first.
