[quote:TheMacaroni:MV8yMDE3NTIzXzMzOTExMjg4XzJFNEU1RjM0] Well we know it is not the Unions because they make up less than 1 percent in the food industry.We know that it is not food stamps because those are paid by tax payers and that is just money recycled back into the system, distributed by JP MORGAN who get a nice piece of the action.We know that we can produce way more food on smaller plants and smaller plots through GEO engineering so that is not it.We know workers are making less and less with no benefits so that is not it.We know it is not supply and demand because with higher prices there is less demand and we have proven and blown that out of the water over and over. I doubt it is the free agricultural money farmers get not to farm.So where does all this money really go?Who regulates prices in a free market?Why do gas stations always have the same price and not compete for costumers in a free market?Why are imports made by cheaper labor (slaves)getting more expensive?:abduct::sheep::pilot::pilot::hunter: [/quote]
1st thing I noticed, my wife and I have hardly changed anything about our buying and eating habits.
The 2nd thing I noticed was the crazy incrases we have had in prices.
1 can Campbells Vegetable soup was listed as $0.89
We now pay $2.19 for the same can.
Fresh Haddock Fillets were $3.99lb. Now $7.99lb.
4 litres of Skim Milk was $4.59...now $7.59.
1 loaf of whole wheat bread was $.99...now $2.99.
Fresh Green Pepper was $1.99lb...now $3.99lb.
Canned tomato juice was $0.99 a can...now $2.29 a can.
Obviously there was waaaaay more on the recipt, but I just can't believe the inflation. I'm sure many people have had to stop buying items the are used to buying, and change their life styles a great deal. I have not gotten to that point yet, but I'm feeling the pinch. It sucks.
Changes are needed.
