Project description:
In recent years there was a volatile development of agricultural commodity prices on the world markets. There are several reasons behind the recent rise in global agricultural commodity prices. Theoretical and empirical literature is inconclusive on the impact of financial markets on volatility of agricultural commodity markets. We plan to develop a theoretical model and conduct empirical analysis to investigate whether the recent rise of agricultural commodity prices and their volatility is due to the impact of financial markets or due to other reasons. We intent to compute short and long-run measures of volatility of agricultural prices for the period before the financial crisis and after the financial crisis. We plan also to compute elasticities of vertical and horizontal prices
