Greenland the next Kuwait?

Except... with >20x (!) the oil per capita. I'm struck by the (probably wise) comment of the experienced Greenlander businessman who says flat out, "I hope it doesn't happen." Besides his obvious recognition of the resource curse, it reminds me of two things: the old villager from Blood Diamond who tells Leo and Djimon something like, "God forbid they find oil here," and my second-favorite John Steinbeck book.
