AN ANALYSIS OF THE PROFILES AND MOTIVATIONS OF HABITUAL COMMODITY SPECULATORS AgEcon
Canoles, W. Bruce; Thompson, Sarahelen R.; Irwin, Scott H.; France, Virginia G..
The focus of this study is the habitual speculator in commodity futures markets. The speculator's activity broadens a market, creates essential liquidity, and performs an irreplaceable pricing function. Working knowledge of the profiles and motivations of habitual speculators is essential to both market theorist and policy makers. Responses to a 73 question survey were collected directly from retail commodity brokers with offices in Alabama. Each questionnaire recorded information on an individual commodity client who had traded for an extended period of time. The typical trader studied is a married, white male, age 52. He is affluent and well educated. He is a self-employed business owner who can recover from financial setbacks. He is a politically right...

An Empirical Analysis of the Determinants of Success of Food and Agribusiness E-Commerce Firms AgEcon
Montealegre, Fernando; Thompson, Sarahelen R.; Eales, James S..
E-commerce's value creation in agricultural and food markets will only occur to the extent that e-commerce firms exist throughout the supply chain. The problem is that e-commerce firms throughout the agricultural and food supply chain have faced a serious challenge in staying in business. Many have been forced to exit the market, and only a few have survived to develop into functional web-based businesses. The objective of this research study is to identify characteristics that are associated with successful e-commerce firms throughout the agricultural and food supply chain. Relevant e-commerce and agricultural e-commerce literature suggests several characteristics that influence the success for agricultural and food e-commerce firms. A limited-dependent...

COMMUNITY SUPPORTED AGRICULTURE: FILLING A NICHE MARKET AgEcon
Farnsworth, Richard L.; Thompson, Sarahelen R.; Drury, Kathleen A.; Warner, Richard E..
In less than a decade, the number of Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) projects has grown to more than 400. Our research suggests that CSA shareholders' social objectives dominate their decision to join. Standard economic objectives and "club-related" objectives contribute to the decision, but are clearly secondary. Our research also suggests the CSA movement will continue to grow. Its emphasis on social objectives, its inability to supply food year around, and the ongoing development of size-neutral organic technologies, however, will probably keep it from becoming a major market channel in the next century.

COMPARISON OF LIQUIDITY COSTS BETWEEN THE KANSAS CITY AND CHICAGO WHEAT FUTURES CONTRACTS AgEcon
Thompson, Sarahelen R.; Eales, James S.; Seibold, David.
The objectives of this study were to: (a) quantify differences in liquidity costs between Kansas City and Chicago wheat futures contracts, and (b) identify the factors which influence liquidity in these two markets. Regression results suggest that there are significant differences in liquidity costs between Chicago and Kansas City which are in part due to the lower trading volume at Kansas City. However, there appears to be a significantly higher cost of doing business at Kansas City which is independent of trading volume. The implications of these findings to traders is that transacting is more expensive in Kansas City than in Chicago.

ILLINOIS PRODUCE GROWERS STUDY - VIABILITY OF SOUTH WATER MARKET IN CHICAGO AS AN OUTLET FOR MARKETING PRODUCE AND ANALYSIS OF NET RETURNS RECEIVED THROUGH ALTERNATE MARKETING CHANNELS AgEcon
Mandal, Sanjay; Thompson, Sarahelen R.; Good, Darrel L..
Most Illinois produce growers do not participate in the wholesale marketing system. Instead, most concentrate their efforts in direct marketing of their produce via pick-your-own operations, roadside stands, farmers' markets, and contracting with food processing firms. Currently only 2-3 percent of the produce arriving in Chicago is of Illinois origin. The wholesale market for produce in Chicago has traditionally been organized around the South Water Market. The small involvement of Illinois producers in the South Water Market is of concern because 1) it may be indicative of problems in the wholesale marketing system used to bring produce to regional retail and hospitality markets, and 2) because it may imply that income generating opportunities for...
