Commodities

A commodity is a basic good, and while the term "basic" has taken on some negative meaning in recent years, don't get commodities twisted; they have nothing to do with Pumpkin Spice Lattes, Uggs or Sex and the City marathons. Because little to no extra value is added to these goods (like gold, wheat, or natural gas) in their production, commodities of similar type and quality must meet specified minimum standards (basis grade) to be sold for a standard price.
