With all the obesity in the USA, a food crisis might be the best thing for people’s health here.

“Vast swathes of the planet are set to go hungry. Those who were previously hungry may starve”

...with our resources we don’t need to play any role in this. We will, but don’t need to.

Food prices, including fast food, seem really high.

I must be a cynic as I was waiting until the end to see a “buy gold now!” incantation.

Or if you believe in divine providence you could say that people were prepared for the inevitable obama famine.

Maybe your dollars are just really weak.

In the USA, Walmart has already announced a price hike of 5.8% on average for a 31-item basic basket for this Autumn.

Has Walmart ever preannounced price increases, especially a long time in advance? That sets off my BS detector for the who article.

Normally you just go into a store and see price were higher than the last time you went in. Sometimes they try to sneak in a big price increase like when a bag of chips goes from $3 to $4. They'll put up the new $4 sign, but say $1.11 off/now only $2.89.

Just dropped 350.00 at Sam’s Club.
Lots of coffee and peanut butter.

Between the rice I bought before, the stuff I bought today and the produce I’ve been processing we’ll make it through pretty well.

no one gives a chit about the masses who are destined to starve in any event.

chances are good that the politically connected with legislative control of present grain resources will profit tidily in this current round. our next generation of leaders.

most in the west will pay whatever the cost for their beers, and the darkskinned brethren they profess compassion for will eat dirt and die in grizzly fashion.
