Abstract

A dynamic model of grain storage supports and elaborates the McCloskey/Nash empirical findings about grain price movements and interest rates. In particular, their finding of a negative time derivative of the growth rate of grain prices is explained, and a means of econometrically distinguishing the interest rate from storage rents is stated.
