IATP Statement on the Death of George Floyd

The death of George Floyd in the custody of a Minneapolis police officer on Monday night profoundly saddened all of us at IATP. Minneapolis is the Institute for Agriculture and Trade Policy’s home, and we are grounded in our community.  We continue to deeply feel and grapple with the immense injustice of Mr. Floyd’s death and the evolving events that have followed in our neighborhood.  

Letter to the Commodity Futures Trading Commission Markets Risk Advisory Committee's Climate Related Market Risk Subcommittee

The Institute for Agriculture and Trade Policy (IATP) appreciates the opportunity to respond to the issues identified in the Notice. IATP first wrote on June 19, 2019 to the Commission on these issues. We are responding to four of five topics outlined in the Notice, plus our “Urgency and ambition” topic. IATP hopes that these brief comments will help the Subcommittee prepare its report for MRAC. We look forward to reading the report and to commenting on the CFTC’s proposals for implementing the “actionable materials” recommended by MRAC following its review of the report.
