Summary

Commodity Modeling and Pricing provides extensions and applications of state-of-the-art methods for analyzing resource commodity behavior. Drawing from the seminal work of Professor Walter Labys on the development of econometric methods for forecasting commodity prices, this collection of essays features expert contributors ranging from practitioners in private industry, public sector, and nongovernmental organizations to scholars in higher education–all of whom were Labys's former students or collaborators. Filled with in-depth insights and expert advice,Commodity Modeling and Pricing contains the information you need to excel in this demanding environment.Preface.

Index.Peter Schaeffer is Professor of Economic Policy at West Virginia University and served as a director of the Division of Resource Management, which includes the Division of Agricultural and Resource Economics, from 1993 to 2006. He was a visiting professor of regional and environmental economics at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology, Zurich, and a visiting scholar at the International Labour Organization in Geneva.Resource commodity markets play a central role in economic development, international trade, and global economic and political stability. The onset of globalization and the spectacular growth and industrial development of China, India, and other Southeast Asian countries—along with an increased use of agricultural commodities for ethanol production—have significantly added to total resource commodity demands and caused unprecedented price increases. Today, the economic analysis and modeling of world commodity markets is more important than ever before.Commodity Modeling and Pricing provides extensions and applications of state-of-the-art methods for analyzing resource commodity behavior.
