However, prices for natural resources are inherently volatile. The reason for this is that both demand and supply ‘elasticities’ in the short-term are low. For example, the amount of oil the world needs does not rapidly fluctuate but steadily increases, whilst equally, it takes time to adjust oil output. Therefore, when there is a shock to oil supply, the price rapidly increases to meet the same demand. Relying on a volatile natural resource price is perhaps what brings about the ‘resource curse’, rather than an abundance of resources (Cavalcanti, Mohaddes, Raissi, 2011) as it makes government revenue unreliable, and therefore state planning very difficult. However, “since the mid-1960s, studies have consistently found that export instability produces unusually high levels of private investment” meaning that “export instability paradoxically produced higher economic growth” (Ross, 1999, ). Arezki and Gylfason (2011) have also shown that price volatility may not hinder economic growth with evidence that democracies and autocracies respond differently, with the latter having less success in mitigating the effects of volatility (). It is also important to recognise the difference in the degree of volatility of natural resources, with oil and natural gas being by far the most volatile.
