Now with more wars breaking out in the M.E and statements like these... really makes you wonder what we are in for.
In the video attached to the article, you can see the full quote, which was "Of particular concern is food prices. This is 'the biggest threat to
the world's poor
, where we risk losing a generation." emphasis mine. This is hardly new information. Rising food prices on basics like corn soy
palm oil etc, that the poorest of the poor live on are becoming too expensive to afford. He, IN NO WAY, is referring to a global collapse of order
where affluent middle class N Americans with computers will be starving.
You are seeing some food prices rise, especially on packaged non-essential items, but i suspect you can still easily afford bread milk grains and
beans, much less soya and palm oil.
