Demand for resources across the globe is surging, and prices for most have risen since the turn of the century. 

This first Quarterly issue of 2012 looks at how the world's natural-resource landscape will be influenced by the emergence of an additional three billion middle-class consumers over the next two decades. 

The issue features new McKinsey research, commentary from historian Niall Ferguson, and insights from executives at Boeing and Veolia Water.
