A conversation with Jeff Curry, Goldman Sachs on demand for commodities

Global demand for commodities has been obliterated. From copper as a barometer of the global economy to oil as a potential inflation hedge, no commodity has escaped the impact of coronavirus.

Jeff Currie, head of commodities research at Goldman Sachs and someone who identified the commodities supercycle in the 2000s, did a Q&A with the London news team at S&P Global Platts in April, hosted by Paul Hickin and Andy Critchlow. He discussed what a potential supply and demand recovery could look like and what the OPEC+ deal could mean for crude markets. In a wide-ranging discussion he brought his insight to LNG, the broader metals complex, shale oil and energy transition too.
