Transparency in extractive industry commodities trading
No wp-2020-172, WIDER Working Paper Series from World Institute for Development Economic Research (UNU-WIDER)
The paper reviews the debate about transparency in extractive industry commodities trade. It examines the obstacles to improved transparency. A critical review of the experience with estimating losses from a lack of transparency concludes that many of the published estimates of losses from transfer mispricing and misinvoicing suffer from methodological deficiencies and appear to be exaggerations.
