In recent years, huge investments have flown into commodities and energy markets. This development has stimulated academic research and policy debates on the economic effects of the financialization of commodities and energy. Topics include the role of speculation in oil markets, design and modeling of efficient electricity markets, effects of financialization versus effects of rising demand for commodities, and others. This conference brings together different perspectives on the financialization of commodities and energy markets. It features presentations by leading experts and scholars in the field.
