What goes behind the scenes of the highly secretive commodities trading market? Financial journalist Kate Kelly looks at the key players behind the industry and how their actions have global consequences.
Due to unavoidable speaker travel issues, we regretfully had to cancel this event but we are pleased that Kate was able to send us a recording of her talk for us to share with you.
Nestled deep in the towers of banking and finance are the commodities traders who spend their days gambling with oil, gold and grain contracts.
Their astonishing wealth has been created in near obscurity, but if the individuals in the commodities boom have gone largely unnoticed, their impact has not. Prices of raw materials have exploded.
Are the big traders hiking up the cost of petrol, food, and essentials bought by people around the world? How did such immense power end up in the hands of a few?
Award-winning financial journalist Kate Kelly takes us inside the inner circle of this highly secretive industry that wields such huge influence over so many of the things we all depend on.
