Making Markets: Histories of Commodity Grading and Trading

On Friday, Caitlin Rosenthal and Espen Storli hosted an interesting workshop on “Making Markets: Histories of Commodity Grading and Trading” at Berkeley. (The description and program can be found here: http://cstms.berkeley.edu/current-events/making-markets/) It seems to me that interest in “grading” and “standards” creation is on the rise at the moment in historical studies of organizations and markets; I can think of a number of historians working on the topic from different angles, including JoAnne Yates and Stephen Mihm.
