Unpacking Indonesia's Palm Oil Export Ban

Indonesia is the world's largest palm oil producer, contributing to 60% of the market supply. They recently banned exports of their palm oil in a move to control their domestic cooking oil prices. We discuss the factors contributing to Indonesia's decision, its effect on the global markets, and how Malaysia may stand to benefit.
