Commodity Classics

There is great benefit to reading (or re-reading) the writings of masters in the field such as Holbrook WorkingRoger GrayTom HieronymusLester TelserAnne PeckAllan Paul, and Bill Tomek.  I regard the writings by these authors as foundational to the study of commodity markets and true “commodity classics.” If you click on one of the previous names you will be taken to a complete bibliography of that person’s work on commodity markets.  The entries in each bibliography are themselves linked to downloadable copies of the publications.   A number of these papers were published in the now defunct Food Research Institute Studies, which until a few years ago was only available in a few university libraries.  I am delighted that AgEcon Search at the University of Minnesota now contains the complete FRI collection.
