The energy powerhouse of the future? Bolivia?

Of all the countries of the world, should someone ask me who I thought would be an energy power in the future, I would try and sound smart by answering something outside-the-box like "some impoverished central African country with lots of untapped oil reserves?"

But the real answer lies in South America, Bolivia to be precise. It reportedly has half the world's known supply of Lithium, which is used in electric car batteries. Yea you heard that right, half the world's supply!

Bolivia may start to become a rather important country in world affairs sooner than one would expect.
