The world is used to get the for production needed elements at demand driven prices. By the huge increasing global demand resources caused by the enormous population growth and the steady growing level of global prosperity (both caused by the emerging markets) there is a market polarity change. Markets become supply driven, this increases element prices enormously. Elements are finite resources. Like by oil: the easy to explore reserves began to decline and run out. More expensive exploration is what ahead of us, increasing the prices severely. But the major change will come as the elements market polarity change will totally completed: Than suppliers will only sold the volume they want to supply to the market (and by the finite characteristics of their element reserves that will certainly not be in the speed the market desires) and by this designed limited supply the prices of elements will increase severely.
