  Africa - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The chief commodities dealt in were slaves, gold, ivory and spices.
The European discovery of the Americas in 1492 was followed by a great development of the slave trade, which, before the Portuguese era, had been an overland trade almost exclusively, and never confined to any one continent.
With subsequent expeditions by Baker and Stanley, Africa was well explored by the end of the century and this was to lead the way for the colonisation which followed.

 MAP, Vitamin C and Vitamin A Assessments
Based on our findings in these studies, SUSTAIN recommended that commodity micronutrient specifications and compliance programs be strengthened, that U.S. producers of food aid commodities adopt improved fortification procedures, and that monitoring and enforcement protocols be developed.
As an adjunct to the MAP activity, SUSTAIN evaluated the feasibility of introducing a new method of delivering vitamin A in food aid--by incorporating it into P.L. 480 cooking oil.
In 2000, SUSTAIN undertook a follow-up Compliance Review of micronutrient content in food aid commodities, to assess whether the new micronutrient specifications were being met, and whether consistent and appropriate levels of micronutrients were being incorporated into food aid commodities.

 Enumerated Commodities
The agricultural commodities shown in bold above are commonly referred to as the enumerated commodities of the Commodity Exchange Act.
These enumerated commodities were added to the CEAct at different times so that futures trading in those commodities would fall under the jurisdiction of the CFTC's predecessor -- the Commodity Exchange Authority, an agency of the U.S. Department of Agriculture.
In 1974 when the CFTC was created, the CEAct was amended so that CFTC jurisdiction was broadened to cover futures and option trading based on any underlying commodity, not just the specific agricultural commodities enumerated in the law.

 Commodities (Fund Portfolios) | SmartMoney.com
But investing in commodity futures contracts, while potentially quite lucrative, is an incredibly risky endeavor in which your losses can go way beyond your original investment.
An alternative for investors with enough cash is a commodity pool, in which you combine your money with that of other investors into a single account.
For starters, it's not uncommon for commodity pools to take 5% off the top for startup and administrative fees — and if the pool does make a profit, the trader takes a cut, usually between 15 and 30%.
