Never societies have consumed so much raw material in the early twenty-first century. Wheat, rice, sugar, soybean oil … All these products are now objects of speculation. The emergence of major powers like China, India and Brazil has caused an explosion in demand. But this is not the only explanation for the surge in prices. Policies, NGOs and the media refer to traders as the main responsible for soaring prices. But who are these speculators accused of starving the planet? And most importantly, how these commodity markets deemed complex and opaque? For the first time, a documentary dismantles the mechanisms of this great world trade to economic issues, major political and food, and reveals the daily life of those who are the main players: traders themselves, the men and women who buy , transport, sell merchandise and speculate on changes in their prices. African cotton plantations of the Hong Kong import companies, Brazilian soybean fields in the hall of the Chicago Board of Trade markets, through commercial ports of Santos and Le Havre.

The Natural Resources Trap: Private Investment without Public Commitment (repost)

William Hogan, "The Natural Resources Trap: Private Investment without Public Commitment"
English | ISBN 10: 0262013797 | 2010 | PDF | 536 pages | 3.5 MB

Volatility in commodity prices has been accompanied by perpetual renegotiation of contracts between private investors in natural resource production and the governments of states with mineral and energy wealth. When prices skyrocket, governments want a larger share of revenues, sometimes to the point of nationalization or expropriation; when prices fall, larger state participation becomes a burden and the private sector is called back in. Recent and newsworthy changes in the price of oil (which fell from an all-time high of $147 in mid-2008 to $40 by year's end) are notable for their speed and the steepness of their rise and fall, but the up-and-down pattern itself is not unusual.
