9. With Chile, Bolivia and Argentina holding the largest known deposits in the world...

thus far (and those deposits are roughly along the shared borders of those 3 countries) it makes one wonder if the recent increase in political upheaval in those countries isn't being driven, at least in part, by the large potential cash cow they have. It will be extremely unfortunate if those countries divert the potential wealth from this resource to a totalitarian minority ruling class in control of the government and big mining corporations instead of a more non corrupt democratic form of government that could possibly funnel that money back into the already impoverished majority class. There's already signs that big multi nationals and foreign governments are playing politics in these countries for their own greed.
