I went to the meat aisle last week cause I'm running ourt of meat in my freezer (usually buy a whole side of beef at a time from a local farmer) and ONE ribeye steak was $18! I about fell over...
You know, because of the California drought prices are going up. Because of all the EXCESSIVE rain through Texas, Colorado, Oklahoma, food crops are ruined. Prices will be going up.
We're in big trouble this next year or two (or more)!
Sure, you can blame the emergence of the middle class the world over, and you can blame the droughts and climate change. But the truth of the matter is that the biggest increase comes from BIG FOOD buying up corporations through acquisitions. No surprise there, huh? Those trans-national corporations continue to roll over our way of life in huge ways every day of our lives.
