Summer Playlist

Jeff Currie, Global Head of Commodities Research, Goldman Sachs

“Buckle your seat belt and hang on for the ride because, ultimately, higher prices are going to be needed to solve some of these issues.”
Jeff Currie

Summer travel is here this holiday weekend! Join us as Jeff Currie, Goldman Sachs’ Global Head of Commodities Research, and host David Greely go around the world in just under an hour.

Originally meeting at the University of Chicago in 1992, they worked together in the 2000s through the “revenge of the old economy” commodities bull market. Today, we’re bringing them back together to discuss what’s different this time and what remains the same.

In the first track of our SmarterMarkets™ Summer Playlist, Jeff and David turn up the heat with a freestyle conversation touching on everything from carbohydrates to hydrocarbons — and how we can encourage, rather than discourage, the investment required to provide the food, energy, and metals we need.
