Why Another Food Commodity Price Spike?

Ronald Trostle ()

Amber Waves:The Economics of Food, Farming, Natural Resources, and Rural America, 2011, 7

Abstract: Large and rapid increases have occurred for many food commodity prices during 2010-11. Long-term production and consumption trends underlay rising food commodity prices, but worldwide production shortfalls and changes in trade policies and practices in a number of countries sparked the sharp surge in prices after June 2010. Many of the long-term trends and short-run shocks contributing to the current price surge also played a role in previous price spikes.
