Abstract:

"One morning while reading Barron's magazine, Kara Newman took note of a casual bit of advice offered by famed commodities trader Jim Rogers. 'Buy breakfast, ' he told investors, referring to the value of rising pork belly and frozen orange juice futures. The statement inspired Newman to take a closer look at agricultural commodities, from the iconic pork belly to the more obscure peppercorn and nutmeg. The results, recorded in this fascinating history, show not only how contracts listed on the Chicago Mercantile Exchange can read like a menu but also how market behavior can dictate global economic and culinary practice"--Provided by publisher.
