Price Spikes in Global Rice Markets Benefit U.S. Growers, at Least in the Short Term

Amber Waves:The Economics of Food, Farming, Natural Resources, and Rural America, 2010, 6

Abstract: Because only a small share of production enters the global market, the world rice market remains susceptible to substantial price volatility. Price volatility is exacerbated by trade policies of importers and exporters seeking to protect their consumers from high prices and ensure adequate supplies. For the U.S., this price and trade volatility can translate into short-term export opportunities.
