Benjamin Cox: How Growth Affects Natural Resources Markets

Benjamin Cox |


Benjamin discusses how growth affects natural resources markets. He uses technology, such as cell phones and refrigerators, as examples of items people prefer to keep once these relative luxuries have been integrated into their lives. Benjamin speaks on and underlines how important it is to distinguish between fundamental demand and marginal demand. As an example, he covers the economic value of a fridge; because it saves Indian women four hours per day, it becomes a necessary part of their lives and is ultimately worth the price. Lastly, Benjamin stresses the importance of discerning the long-term drivers of demand and supply for any commodity.
