  • Imperfect competition in the primary Agricultural Commodity Market in Serbia
    Ekonomski anali, 2010
    Co-Authors: Vesna Paraušić, Branko Mihailović, Vladana Hamovic
    Abstract:

    Development of the primary Agricultural production sector in the Republic of Serbia is predominantly restricted by a disorganized and inefficient Market of purchase of primary Agricultural products. The government should be held responsible for this, because its existing legislation and law-implementing instruments and institutions are failing to secure a healthy Market economy. In the future the country will have to demonstrate systematic activity towards regulating and developing the Agricultural Commodity Market, and provide an input for Agricultural production. This only represents the first step, yet nevertheless it is the essential prerequisite for developing a competitive Agricultural sector in Serbia.

  • Elements of competition and agrarian Market structures in Serbia
    Ekonomika Poljoprivrede (1979), 2009
    Co-Authors: Milan R. Milanović, Branko Mihajlović, Vesna Paraušić
    Abstract:

    One of the biggest problems of agriculture in Serbia is an institutionally undeveloped Agricultural Commodity Market and inefficient resource allocation. Although oligopsony is inevitable and sometimes even useful for the majority of Agricultural Commodity Markets, the crucial thing is that the government, due to its undeveloped institutions, is unable to penalise Market participants who abuse their Market position, and jeopardise competition by breaking contracts, operating in ‘gray economy’, etc. Some of the main directions Serbia should take towards promoting its agrarian Market, include a shift from the gray Market economy towards legal channels, more efficient Competition Policy and promotion of legal, judicial and executive branches of government. .

  • efficiency of indian commodities Market a study of Agricultural Commodity derivatives traded on ncdex
    Social Science Research Network, 2010
    Co-Authors: Gurbandini Kaur, D N Rao
    Abstract:

    Since Commodity “futures” trading was permitted in 2003, the Commodity derivative Market in India has witnessed phenomenal growth. Though the volume of Commodity futures trade increased exponentially since its launch in 2003, the functioning of the futures Market came under scrutiny during 2008-2009 due to price rise and the role of futures Market in stabilizing spot prices was widely discussed. The study aims at testing the weak form of Efficient Market Hypothesis in the context of an emerging Commodity Market – National Commodity Derivatives Exchange (NCDEX), which is considered as the prime Commodity derivatives Market in India. The study considered daily spot and futures prices of four Agricultural commodities traded on NCDEX over a 13 month period (the futures contracts originating and expiring during the period July 2008 to July 2009). The four commodities chosen are Pepper, Refined Soya Oil, Guar seed and Chana as they account for almost two-thirds of the value of Agricultural Commodity derivatives traded on NCDEX. 27 Future Contracts for the above four commodities were analyzed for the period of study. Autocorrelation and Run test have been used to test the efficiency of the Agricultural Commodity Market. It has been observed that the coefficients are high for lags in the beginning and the values continue to fall as the lags increase. However, the fall in values of autocorrelation coefficients is not much. This may suggest that information embedded in longer period of lags would be as influential in determining future price as that of information embedded in short lag periods. The results of Autocorrelation and Run test indicate that both spot and futures prices are weak form efficient.

  • Agricultural commodities and climate change
    Climate Policy, 2012
    Co-Authors: Kirsty Lewis, Claire Witham
    Abstract:

    The Agricultural Commodity Market is sensitive to variations in weather and climate, which can disrupt supply and cause price fluctuations. Some of the key positive and negative impacts of climate change on Agricultural commodities, using the examples of wheat and barley, are identified; of particular significance are temperature changes, water availability, and CO2 fertilization. Although they are not exempt from the negative impacts of climate change, higher latitude regions of production, including Canada and Russia, will benefit the most from climate change. The impacts on other important production regions, such as parts of Europe, the US, and Argentina, will be more mixed. Market stability in all regions will also be affected by changes in climate and weather extremes. To increase resilience to the effects of weather events and climate change on the Agricultural Commodity Market, countries should diversify their sources of supply, encourage more countries to grow and export the relevant commodities,…
