Causes et conséquences de l’activité financière sur la dynamique des prix agricoles

Abstract : The numerous food riots that took place during the 2007-2008 period in Africa, the Caribbean and Asia began following an extreme rise in prices of several agricultural commodities. Since the beginning of the 2000s, prices of agricultural products have followed an upward and volatile trend. In this context, this phenomenon has significant consequences for people living in developing countries who are highly dependent on agricultural price dynamics. We propose to study the influence of financial activity upon agricultural prices formation. To do that, we analyze both theoretically and empirically the effects of the financialization. This first research work is organized around four chapters. The first two chapters focus on the relationship between the financial and agricultural markets. They highlight a reinforcement of the existing links between financial and agricultural markets. The third chapter analyses the impact of investor behaviour on agricultural price dynamics, that is a rise of both volatility and extreme price movements. The last chapter deals with the economic consequences for developing countries of international agricultural prices fluctuations. The global commodity market might reinforce the integration of international and national cereal markets. By doing that, it can ease the transmission of shocks.
