Product Description: Since 1939, professional traders, commercial hedgers, portfolio managers, and speculators around the world have come to rely on The CRB Commodity Yearbook to help them navigate the uncertainties of the commodity markets.

The single most comprehensive source of commodity and futures market information available, the Yearbook is the book of record of the Commodity Research Bureau, which is, in turn, the organization of record for the commodity industry itself. Its sources--reports from governments, private industries, and trade and industrial associations--are authoritative, and its historical scope is second to none.

Breadth and depth of information make the Yearbook indispensable for identifying changing trends in supply and demand and for projecting important price movements. The 1999 edition provides crucial information on more than 100 domestic and international commodities--from alcohol to gold to zinc--and includes seasonal patterns and historical data from the past ten years as well as current (within the last three months) pricing and trading patterns on a monthly and annual basis.

The information is formatted to make researching a particular commodity as convenient as possible. Each commodity is introduced by a brief article that describes its salient features, pricing trends in recent years, and factors--be they droughts, wars, diseases, or politics--that have influenced prices in the past, and may do so in the future. The data itself is presented in over 900 tables, graphs, and price charts that are clear and easy to read.

Also featured are major articles on key markets and important issues by prominent professionals in the commodity industry that have been commissioned exclusively for the Yearbook.

For the wealth of its information and the authority of its sources, The CRB Commodity Yearbook 1999 stands alone as a guide to intelligent trading in commodities and futures.

The single most comprehensive source of commodity and futures market information available.

Since 1939, professional traders, commercial hedgers, portfolio managers, and speculators have come to regard The CRB Commodity Yearbook as the "bible" of the industry. Here is a wealth of authoritative data, gathered from government reports, private industry, and trade and industry associations, all compiled by the Commodity Research Bureau, the organization of record for all the commodity industry itself.

Absolutely essential for identifying changing trends in supply and demand and for projecting important price movements, the Yearbook gives the investor:

  • Worldwide supply/demand and production/consumption data for all the basic commodities and futures markets--from A(luminum) to Z(inc), including all the major markets in interest rates, currencies, energy, and stock index futures.
  • Over 900 tables, graphs, and price charts of historical data, most of them since 1989.
  • Concise introductory articles that describe the salient features of each commodity and help put the quantitative information in perspective.
  • Articles by prominent professionals on key markets and important issues concerning the commodity industry. The 1999 Yearbook features "The Threat of Deflation," by Roger Bootle; "Understanding Electronic Trading," by Joseph H. Zoller; and "The Bridge/CRB Total Return Index," by Raymond T. Murphy.

    For anyone dealing in commodities, The CRB Commodity Yearbook 1999 offers an abundance of valuable information and indispensable guidance for decision making.

FAQ'S

1. How do textbook rentals work?
It’s simple. Begin by searching for your textbook by ISBN (10 or 13-digit number that can be found on the back cover of each book), title, author or keyword. Next select how long you would like to rent the book then add it to your cart. Repeat for each book you’re looking for. After completing the order we’ll ship them to you and you’ll also receive a prepaid mailer. Return your books in the mailer by your rental due date.
2. Is renting a textbook better than purchasing it?
We offer both! You can buy or rent the book through Campus Book Rentals. It’s up to you to decide which option best meets your educational needs.
3. How do I track my order?
Login to your account here, you’ll see your current rentals listed textbook rentals listed with a yellow box that says “track”. Click the box to view the tracking number. *Not all books will have a tracking number since they may be sent from one of our partners. Tracking numbers will be updated as they become available.
4. How do I return my books?
When you rent textbooks from Campus Book Rentals you’ll receive a prepaid mailer. When it’s nearing your due date you’ll place your books inside the mailer and take it to the nearest USPS drop box or Post Office. If you don’t receive a mailer you can print a return label from your account. Return shipping is prepaid so please use either of the two methods to ensure they arrive at the correct facility.
5. Can I write or highlight in my book?
Of course! Just remember that future students will rent the same book after you, so please be respectful.
6. How much money can renting my books save?
It depends on the book. Generally renting textbooks can save you up to 80% compared to a new textbook.
7. Are Campus Book Rentals’ books the same as my bookstore’s?
Yes! We only ship US edition textbooks, which are the same as your campus bookstore.
8. Do access codes or other supplements come with a textbook rental?
One time use access codes and other supplemental materials are NOT included with rental books and must be purchased separately.
9. What if I don’t return my rental?
If your book rental is not returned by the due date, your credit card will be charged a non-return fee, equal to the replacement value for the book.
10. Can I purchase my book after I rent it?
Certainty! You’re only charged the difference between what you already paid and the value of the book at the time you initially rented. Login to your account and choose to purchase your book and it’ll walk you through the checkout process.
