  17. 17. Summing Up The mining sector is a tough business in which to operate and in which failure rates are high. Taxation policy needs to reflect this. Profits from commodity price cyclical highs are an essential part of the mining business. They are needed to compensate for cyclical lows. Taxation models from economists fail to consider social benefits and are best left to academics. These social benefits are essential for emerging countries such as those in Africa and they are far more significant than tax recepts alone. African countries that have lifted tax rates to 35%, whilst receiving royalties and requiring government ownership of equity, amongst other imposts, are turning away potential investors and doing the their people a disservice. Recent changes in taxes structures in African countries have been ill advised. 17
