The banks are not hoarding cash they are loaning it all to government. Buying bonds. Then borrowing more from the federal reserve at .25% and buying bonds at 3%.

There is a wild man in charge and this is the safest bet they could find.

US Farmers Plant Fewest Wheat Acres Since 1913

This article also indicates concern.

A government report shows the nation's farmers planted the fewest winter wheat acres this season since 1913.

The Agriculture Department reported Tuesday that the total acres of winter wheat for 2010 is 37.1 million acres, down 14 percent nationwide from last year.

The agency blames poor weather, low prices and the late row crop harvest for the decrease

Translation: Jimmy, a guy who began his career working for George Soros, starts an Ag ETF in 2007 that is down 24%. What’s he gonna say “Please by my Ag Fund?” or “Food Fight!”. I doubt he is planting a garden in Singapore. (He gets extra credit for naming his daughters Happy and Baby Bee).

Food shortages are common in all communist countries. You’d better get used to the idea.

Jim Rogers is a one dimensional commodities bull. He’s been pitching sugar and coffee as an investment for the past 2 years on Fox’s Bulls and Bears.

The USDA just estimated the 2009/2010 corn and soybean crops and are expecting a surprisingly big crop. Corn prices plunged 13% in 2 days because it looks like we’ll have lots of supply. With corn prices falling, some farmers will plant more soy and wheat, which will bring those prices down as well. By the way, we grow so much excess corn in U.S., we burn 1/3 of the total crop in our cars in the form of ethanol.

Unlike oil, agriculture is a renewable resource that as we apply technology and capital, we get more and more production.

Maybe we can all go to Haiti—and they can all come here. That’ll work!
