Inhaltsangabe: 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.
Klappentext: Praise for Commodity Modeling and Pricing
"It is a pleasure to see this important book in print. There is deep knowledge concerning particular industries behind the analysis in many of these contributions. From my perspective, the combination of strong econometrics and strong industry-based analysis is hard to beat."
?Frank Giarratani, Director and Professor of Economics, University of Pittsburgh
"Walter Labys arrived at the University of Nottingham soon after I had finished a book on the predictability of stock market prices with Oskar Morgenstern, and so I suggested that Walter apply the same approach to the set of speculative markets involving commodities. The result was a huge success; many of the prices seemed to be well approximated by random walks but plenty of other relationships were discovered. Commodity Modeling and Pricing extends the area of study to a wider class of questions as a great range of data and several new generations of econometric techniques have become available. The whole area of commodity modeling will clearly continue to expand in width and depth."
?Sir Clive W. J. Granger, University of California?San Diego, Nobel Prize Winner in Economics?2003
"This is an impressive collection of essays applying the latest methods for analyzing commodity market behavior. How far this field has come!"
?F. Gerard Adams, Emeritus Professor, University of Pennsylvania
How to effectively analyze, model, and forecast today's commodity markets
Commodity Modeling and Pricing offers a collection of studies?by some of the world's leading economists?that will serve as a complete guide to resource commodity behavior. Each study provides state-of-the-art analysis on the modeling of commodity markets and prices and on the application of these methods to agriculture, energy, minerals, and the environment.
This book first considers the way in which commodity prices exhibit nonlinear, cyclical, or chaotic fluctuations over time. It then moves on to emphasize how market disequilibrium reflected in inventory adjustments affects this price behavior. With a fine balance between theoretical and empirical research, these essays point to new ways in which the dynamic?if not unstable?nature of commodity markets can be dealt with, not only in terms of individual market activity but also in terms of their interactions with the economy and the environment.
Filled with in-depth insights and expert advice, Commodity Modeling and Pricing contains the information you need to excel in this demanding environment.
