Goldman Sachs: Food prices are about to surge all over again
We have been very active in our discussions of the impact of the pending rise in food prices around the world (from central bank largesse to weather-related chaos). As Goldman notes, food inflation has been one of the most significant sources of headline inflation variation in emerging markets (EM) over the past few years. Since June, international prices for agricultural commodities have risen almost 30%, increasing the risk of fresh, food-related increases to EM headline inflation.

We, like Goldman, expect EM headline inflation to start to reflect the relevant pressures more broadly in the October prints, at the latest. While the effects, for now, are expected to be less extreme than the 2010-2011 episode, the timing, as the U.S. enters its fiscal-cliff-prone malaise, could mean a further round of easing will reignite this…

This is going to hurt folks getting hit by rising fuel prices already - and just in time for the cold weather.

Re: Goldman Sachs: Food prices are about to surge all over again
Well then, maybe "Goldman Sachs" should stop betting on pork bellies, oil, corn, soybeans, etc., and stop being part of the problem!

Just amazing that not only, do we let these assholes just print money and loan it out at interest, but we actually LISTEN to their advice at the same time!!

All of this has been well predicted for years now. If you're effected by this then you're just a dang fool. Shoulda started gardening years ago. Of course food prices are going up. And this is just the beginning.

Re: Goldman Sachs: Food prices are about to surge all over again
RESULT of the drought AND the percentage of options sold BEFORE crops were even planted in the spring to FOREIGN NATIONS, of the approximately 50-60 % that was actually harvested !

WHY the delay ?

My guess would be, enough local farm produce to satisfy local needs all summer , BUT, when canning plants are cut WAY BACK on foods coming in, prices will RISE, while goods DIMINISH on shelves !

Sounds like a very vague and clinical way to describe the fallout from a Goldman created crisis. They, of all people, would know what's coming down the pipe.. because they've already put themselves in a position to profit from it.

Can't make money from food-stamps & poor people, unless you create more food stamps and poor people.. done deal.

Poverty has become the fastest growing industry in America & business is booming.!!

I agree. Even if you don't want to get into preserving foods to be shelf stable, you at least eat cheap and healthy food for a good 4-6 months. I know some people don't have time or are intimidated by gardening but its worth it!

"the timing, as the U.S. enters its fiscal-cliff-prone malaise,"

goldman saying the u.s. economy is on a fiscal cliff..prone?

I know. My personal thought is that people don't know just how easy it is. Certain plants can be tricky but so much can be grown in containers. Certain mulches like wood chips, pine needles etc contain weeds. After that its just watering and really.. that's not hard. It snowballs too. I started out with a salsa garden (tomatoes, peppers, onions, cilantro) and a few years later started what was essentially a kitchen garden. Now I have that on a larger scale and preserve for winter. Its empowering really.

Look up making your own rain barrels if you garden. It isn't hard and just one barrel alone was enough to water my garden through the summer. It doesn't help large scale farms, but helps individuals that just want to grow food for themselves. Plus you get to avoid using city water on your plants.

Wondering how long the dollar stores, and 99.9c will be able to keep as much in their stores. Prices going up on most everything, and the gas prices aren't helping at all. Costs more to transport them, and for picking.

Re: Goldman Sachs: Food prices are about to surge all over again
I did quite a bit of canning this year, and it was well worth the effort. I also tried to build a large stock of household items such as soap, shampoo,laundry supplies, etc...In a time of huge food price increases I want to spend my entire shopping budget on food items and not worry about other things.
