“Rising prices wont help the economy anymore than it did when FDR ordered millions of food animals and millions of acres of crops to be destroyed.”
All the rising food prices are accomplishing here (in the US) is destroying the sectors where people spent discretionary income; too many people are simply working now for food, gasoline, and rent/mortgage payments. In my area, where a liquor license was a great investment (and always in demand), several bars have closed and licenses are for sale with no takers.
Yep. I know it all too well.
Making people poorer/prices rise is NOT boosting the economy
