Wars always affect All Markets

Wars always affect all markets. When there is turmoil or fear, people are less likely to take risk. War is not good for anything except commodities. In such a scenario, people prefer to put their money into commodities like lead, copper or wheat because they know those are necessary for war. Likewise for gold. Thus, war is not good for anything except commodities. It is less bad for the people who win the war but in the meantime when there is uncertainty, people are afraid of investing and taking risk.
