The Durban mayor announced over the weekend that the Durban port should be closed to prevent minerals from leaving the country.
This must apparently be done to become independent of Western imperialism. No word has been spoken of China and the Brick countries exporting minerals.
Mike Schüssler questions the logic, as mining houses without exports would not be able to pay workers and workers could not take money home.
Without mineral exports, the economy as a whole would go under and the existing weak economy would have been already in a deep depression.
