Abstract

The behavior of three markets with speculators is studied. Each market is for commodities that can be carried forward one period by two speculators. Demand in the first period is randomly determined. The questions posed by the research is the reliability of rational expectations models relative to autarky models in explaining market behavior. The result is that the rational expectations model is more accurate.
