This paper elalobrates on the question whether speculative capital invested on commodity futures markets has an effect on staple food, on corn in particular, between 2006 and 2008. Effects as such amount to increasing prices for this type of grain, which may be the cause for the worldwide hunger crisis.
Diese Studie geht der Frage nach, inwiefern Finanzspekulationen an den Warenterminbörsen für Grundnahrungsmittel, respektive Mais (corn), die weltweite Hungersnot zwischen 2006 und 2008 ausgelöst haben, bzw. eine Mitschuld daran tragen.
