No wonder you're misinformed, you've only studied economics at an intro-level. I personally, have an MBA, BBA in finance & BS in marketing. I suggest you read Craig S. Galbraith, MBA, PhD report “Negative Economic Impacts of Titan Cement and Mine” Dr. Galbraith is a senior Professor of Entrepreneurship and Technology, and GlaxoSmithKline Faculty Fellow in economic development at the Cameron School of Business at UNCW. The Ideal cement plant was far from ideal, farmers were unable to harvest crops because they were covered by cement dust and for workers the dust was so thick they sometimes couldn't see their hands in front of them. The Ideal cement plant was a dwarf compared to what Titan's plant will be. The Titan plant will be the fourth largest cement plant in the nations and occupy the skyline with 420 feet smoke stacks. The population of Castle Haynes was far less than what it is now and 8,000 school children didn't attend classes within a 5 mile radius of Ideal cement.
