Abstract:

Tunisia's Arab Spring was triggered in part by a surge in grain prices that made purchasing bread nearly impossible. Like other publicly traded goods, the wheat market is subject to speculation - but when investors speculate on agricultural futures, food costs rise, directly impacting the quality of life in developing countries. In this program, director Kees Brouwer assumes the role of a food speculator as he investigates this practice, traveling to the Chicago Board of Trade and to Tunisia, where he meets with the man responsible for food prices there. Along the way, viewers get a crash course in commodities investment, supply and demand, and futures contracts.
