Abstract [en]

The present is a period of strong interest in world commodity markets, and for many commodities prices have soared during the last five years. However, during the 1980s and 1990s the interest in these markets was much more limited given the depressed prices at the time. In spite of these cyclical movements, commodities - minerals, metals and agricultural products - have constantly remained important inputs to the global economy, and commodity markets and public policy measures influencing these markets therefore deserve scrutiny and critical analysis. Marian Radetzki's book contributes with such analyses, and it does not only cover the present commodity boom but provides also an in-depth analysis of the historical development of commodity markets at the global level. It is therefore essential reading for anyone who wants to learn more about the long-term forces that shape the production and use of commodities worldwide.Radetzki is a Swedish professor of economics, and he has written extensively on commodity and energy markets during the last 40 years. The book represents a successor to one of his previous books, A Guide to Primary Commodities in the World Economy, published by Blackwell in 1990, thus at a time when the interest in raw materials was much weaker than it is at the present.
