Abstract

The purpose of this MQP is to analyze a system dynamics model of the commodities market built by Dennis Meadows Ph.D. and add a speculation sector to the existing model. By adding this previously ignored sector I hope to accomplish a better understanding of how real commodities markets work and identify the drivers behind behavioral patterns associated with commodities trading.
