Moreover, in the areas of business studies the importance of such trade is only beginning to be felt. This book is a modern treatise on the subject of trade and market of minerals, metals, oil and natural gas. The book has a total of 20 chapters. The contents of the chapters in addition to the preface and introduction are: industry structure, commodity market, barriers to trade, cartels, role of currency, coal trade; resources and supply of oil, investment and uncertainty, risk, forecasting; maritime trade; metal, gold and scrap trade; effects of disaster on trade and social development needs of trade .The last chapter is a comprehensive glossary on the subjects dealt.
