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

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.
