Commodity Prices In Empirical Research

Jean-François Carpantier ()

No 2020021, LIDAM Discussion Papers IRES from Université catholique de Louvain, Institut de Recherches Economiques et Sociales (IRES)

Abstract: Commodity prices are key ingredients in many economic theories. We pick three of them (Prebisch-Singer Hypothesis, commodity currencies, financialization of commodity markets) and give a critical view on the empirical challenges faced by practitioners, including measurement inconsistencies, endogeneity concerns, time series properties and empirical design.
