Commodity Trade and Price Trends, 1989-91 Edition

Price: $ 36

This handbook provides statistics on international trade in commodities for developing and industrial countries worldwide. It gives detailed time series for primary commodity prices that are a vital part of international trade.
Commodity price trends are reviewed for 1987-91. Researchers will learn which years--and commodities--experienced booms or slumps. The report summarizes the activities of individual commodity groups and supplies exhaustive statistical tables in key trade categories.
Some tables give external trade values for broad groups--by economic region--over the last two decades. They present data for trade volume, value, unit value, and terms of trade. Others contain time series on the direction of trade by economic regions. Data from earlier years is revised to reflect changes in country coverage.
Additional tables provide country profiles on the primary commodity exports of low- and middle-income countries (LMICs). These statistics reflect the three-year period 1985-87, and include each country's share in world exports.
The manual presents export and import data by commodity. These data cover LMICs and high-income countries and give the direction of trade by commodity for the high-income group for 1985-87.
General price indexes that can be used as a measure of inflation are also shown. They detail the purchasing power derived from primary commodities exported by the developing economies.
They give detailed data on commodities that range from foods to raw materials to petroleum products. The handbook also supplies market quotations for fifty-five commodities for 1950-91.
