National – U.S. Policy
We work to ensure good implementation of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act and look for other strategic ways to reinstate common sense rules in U.S. commodity markets. As an example see: Letters we have written to Congress and the Administration.
International – Global Markets
We work with international partners to help bring about global agreements on commodity market regulation. We work especially with the G20 and EU Commission.
Divestment – Moving Funds out of Commodities
While legal reform is important, it has not stopped all excessive speculation. We are talking with pension funds and university endowments, showing them how most commodity investments have been losing money despite rising commodity prices and how their investments can influence world food prices and contribute to world hunger.
