Variable Exchange Rates and Trading on Commodity Markets

image of Variable Exchange Rates and Trading on Commodity Markets




The volatility of the floating exchange rate system in operation for currencies during the last decade or so has had profound effects on the world economy. The precise nature of many of these effects remains controversial but it is clear that exchange rate fluctuations and misalignments have had a particularly marked impact on the livelihoods of hose who produce for or sell on international commodity markets. Though the amount of literature on the effects of exchange rates on international trade has increased greatly during recent years, comparatively little of it has been directed towards the concerns of developing countries or the marketing of the primary commodities on which many of them still depend for their economic survival.
