Cyclope is a study group specialised in the analysis of global raw materials and commodities markets. It takes its name from the Cyclope Yearbook published every year since 1986 by Editions Economica. Cyclope is headed by Philippe Chalmin, professor at the University of Paris-Dauphine and a consultant to international organisations (OECD, EEC, UNCTAD) The study group functions as an international network and brings together more than fifty market specialists from around the world. The Cyclope Report plunges the reader into the arcana of all of the commodities markets, from apples to zirconium, including textiles, soya, automobiles and even art. Edition after edition, it has become the essential reference work for this particularly volatile universe. It likewise offers precious background analyses of the weight and responsibility of China, for example, or of the WTO’s Doha Round negotiations, or the development of the recycling markets, etc. Cyclope also offers the reader an overview of the tensions and conflicts of globalisation and the international economy. The Cyclope Report is produced by an international team of economists, journalists and professionals under the direction of Philippe Chalmin and benefits from the support of more than thirty French companies. beginning of 2015 on the increasingly open battlefields from Ukraine to Syria, the markets for oil and iron ore, and in the hushed corridors of Geneva, Brussels and Washington... "For Whom the Bell Tolls", the title of the book by Ernest Hemingway published in 1940 whose theatre was one of the most cruel civil wars in history, the Spanish Civil War, lends itself well to the questions the authors of CyclOpe raise on geopolitics, economics and the analysis of the major world markets—the world of commodities in the broadest sense—from art to zirconium.
