A workshop on “Commodities, Energy and Finance”, was jointly organised by SUERF, the Oesterreichische Nationalbank and the Bankwissenschaftliche Gesellschaft at the OeNB’s premises in Vienna, on 3 March 2008. Over 100 participants from 16 countries followed a day of discussions on the nature and dynamics of commodity markets, on the relationships between financial, commodity and energy markets in Europe, on the challenges of oil wealth and on how monetary policy should take commodity and energy prices into account. The workshop brought together both professional and academic perspectives as well as financial, microeconomic and central banking views on the channels of mutual influence between commodities and energy markets as well as financial markets.
