China's emergence in global commodity markets
AbstractThis paper analyses the history of China’s demand for commodities — across energy, metals and agriculture — and the potential path of future demand. It compares China’s experience in recent decades with that of other recent industrialising economies, and considers the scale and pace of China’s commodity demand and its own domestic production on global commodity markets.
