commodity prices

Commodity prices

http://www.mckinsey.com/Insights/Energy_Resources_Materials/Resource_revolution p. 25.

In the 20th century, average commodity prices declined almost 50%

ttp://www.mckinsey.com/Insights/Energy_Resources_Materials/Resource_revolution p. 22.

In the first decade of the 21st century, commodity prices increased sharply

http://www.mckinsey.com/Insights/Energy_Resources_Materials/Resource_revolution p. 30.

The oil price is partly determined by actual supply and demand, and partly by
expectation.
Demand for energy is closely related to economic activity. It also spikes in the

winter in the northern hemisphere, and during summers in countries


which use air conditioning. Supply can be affected by weather (which prevents
tankers loading) and by geopolitical upsets.
If producers think the price is staying high, they invest, which after a lag boosts
supply. Similarly, low prices lead to an investment drought. OPECs decisions shape
expectations: if it curbs supply sharply, it can send prices spiking. Saudi Arabia
produces nearly 10m barrels a day - a third of the OPEC total.
