Recent developments in commodity modeling: a World Bankfocus

Walter C. Labys

No 119, Policy Research Working Paper Series from The World Bank

Abstract: This paper provides insights into international commodity modeling by providing a survey of recent developments in this modeling area and by explaining how these developments interacted with and were applied within the Bank. Following a brief introduction into basic commodity modeling purposes, a fuller description is given of the nature of the various methodologies, and of recent advances in their formulation. The Bank's employment of these methodologies in constructing and operating a variety of commodity models is then discussed. While a perspective is provided regarding historical modeling developments within the Bank, most of the review is concerned with the Bank's recent success in utilizing these models for forecasting and market analysis purposes.
