Global Commodities Applied Research Digest

The J.P. Morgan Center for Commodities at the University of Colorado Denver Business School is the home of an innovative bi-annual e-publication, the Global Commodities Applied Research Digest (GCARD), generously sponsored by the CME Group Foundation. The purpose of the digest is to highlight for practitioners the key findings of applied research on topical commodity issues.

The GCARD covers topical issues in the agricultural, metals and mining, and energy markets as well as in commodity finance. The aim of the digest is to serve the J.P. Morgan Center’s applied research mission by informing commodity-industry practitioners on research that will either directly impact their businesses or will impact public policy in the near future. The selection of articles is based on how relevant articles are to the concerns of professionals engaged in the business of commodities.

Dr. Yosef Bonaparte, Academic Program Director of the JPMCC, was an academic discussant at a Research Council panel. Also pictured on the panel are the following Research Council members, from left-to-right: Dr. James Hamilton, Professor of Economics at the University of California, San Diego; Dr. Bluford Putnam, Chief Economist of the CME Group; and Dr. Margaret Slade, Professor Emeritus of Economics at the University of British Columbia

Until now, there has not been an accessible source of concise information about current research across commodity segments: the GCARD precisely fills this marketplace gap. An additional goal is to encourage dialog amongst stakeholders in the various commodity disciplines.

The J.P. Morgan Center for Commodities (JPMCC) is the first of its kind covering the broad range of commodities. The Center provides research insights, student educational programs, and professional education offerings in commodities markets, regulation, trading, risk management and policy.
