Current Research Interests

Professor LeClair's research has focused on the causes of commodity price instability, and some of the methods by which that instability can be reduced.  His 2000 book on  cartels examined how collusion in commodity markets influenced markets.  Subsequent published work has focused on the related topics of Fair Trade, the use of commodity money to stabilize prices, and use of the tax system to eliminate price swings.  Currently, he has returned to the topic of cartels, and is researching the lastest round of cartels impacting markets in Europe and the U.S.
