September 24, 2009 at 9:15 by Andriy Moraru

In this video Jeff Fortenberry, a congressman from the U.S. state of Nebraska, discusses the role of the commodity market speculators in the global economic crisis. Although it’s quite a political issue, the video will be useful to watch in order to understand what possible regulatory actions and policies will be introduced to decrease the role of the speculators in the formation of the commodity prices. Jeff talks about the possible ways to decrease the proportion of the speculators to the hedgers that deal with the commodities directly or indirectly by the nature of their business.
