BHP and Potash, Inflation, Stealing Calories From the Future / Commodities / Food Crisis

By: Dan_Denning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleHmm. Let's see. Last time BHP Billiton made a tilt at a high-profile, big money acquisition, the whole world went pear-shaped. As the statisticians say, correlation is not causation. But M&A activity seems to pick up when company directors have run out of other ways to increase earnings. It does not always work out well for shareholders. Case in point, BHP's shares are down today by 3.5%.

Russian Wildfires Highlight the Global Population Growth-Food Supply Crisis / Commodities / Food Crisis

By: Investment_U

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMatthew Weinschenk writes: … And a great fire shall consume the land. The crops shall fail. Many acres will lay fallow – and hunger will spread.

That’s not a 2012 end-of-days prophecy. It’s the situation in Russia right now, as the country faces a crisis of biblical proportions.

Global Food Prices Hysteria, Hunger and Riots Forecast / Commodities / Food Crisis

By: Pravda

The situation with food prices in the world has been hysterical recently. In Russia, prices on food have already increased considerably as a result of the drought. The Russian government banned the export of crops, which boosted the prices on wheat and resulted in panic comments from Western experts who started predicting global hunger riots.

By: Submissions

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhile Goldman Sachs agreed to pay $550 million to resolve a civil fraud lawsuit filed by the SEC, Goldman has not been held accountable for many of its other questionable investment practices. A new article in Harper’s Magazine examines the role Goldman played in the food crisis of 2008 when the ranks of the world’s hungry increased by 250 million. We speak to Harper’s contributing editor Frederick Kaufman.

Food Crisis while Futures Funds Fall the Most since 1987 / Commodities / Food Crisis

By: Andrew_Abraham

Who do you believe?… Jim Rogers came out today and predicts food shortages. Jim Rogers thinks there will be food shortages because of the financial crisis. He believes the agricultural sector is low on funds and inventories are at the lowest levels in decades. An example is a recent trade that most trend followers are in is Sugar. Sugar is still 70% below it’s highs. Can you imagine the potential profits only if sugar rebounds 50%? The same can be said about gold or even coffee.

On The Road To Copenhagen and A Global Food Crisis / Politics / Food Crisis

By: Robert_Palmer


Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDoes the following analysis sound familiar?

“A weakening U.S. dollar is putting upward pressure on oil prices. The shock produced chaos in the West. In the United States, the retail price of a gallon of gasoline rose 50%, consumption dropped by 6.1% from September to February. Underscoring the interdependence of the world societies and economies, oil-importing nations in the noncommunist industrial world saw sudden inflation and economic recession. The energy crisis led to greater interest in renewable energy and spurred research in solar power and wind power as well as increased interest in mass transit.”

Global Food Crisis 2010 Means Financial Armageddon / Commodities / Food Crisis

By: Eric_deCarbonnel

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIf you read any economic, financial, or political analysis for 2010 that doesn’t mention the food shortage looming next year, throw it in the trash, as it is worthless. There is overwhelming, undeniable evidence that the world will run out of food next year. When this happens, the resulting triple digit food inflation will lead panicking central banks around the world to dump their foreign reserves to appreciate their currencies and lower the cost of food imports, causing the collapse of the dollar, the treasury market, derivative markets, and the global financial system. The US will experience economic disintegration.

The Real Crisis is Beginning to Unfold… and It’s Not Financial Part2 / Commodities / Food Crisis

By: Graham_Summers

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn my earlier article, I outlined the economic backdrop that will push agriculture and food prices higher in the not so distant future. If you missed that essay, you can review it here.

To rehash, we’ve added roughly three billion people to the earth’s population since the ‘60s. We accommodated this growth by using fertilizers, irrigation, and other systems that have deleterious effects on land overtime. As a consequence, worldwide arable land per person has essentially halved from 0.42 hectares per person in 1961 to 0.23 hectares per person in 2002.

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe real crisis is coming… and it’s coming fast.

Indeed, it started last year, almost entirely off the radar of the American public. While all eyes were glued to the carnage in the stock market and brokerage account balances, a far more serious crisis began to unfold rocking 30 countries around the globe.

Global Food Crisis as Technological Advances / Politics / Food Crisis

By: Oxbury_Research

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleBy 2050, according to the World Bank (WB), global population is expected to increase by 3 billion people. The global population is always growing (I'm almost done being Captain Obvious), and a direct result of that growth comes the WB's expectation that food demand will double by 2030 from current levels. While more people are eating more food, farmland remains finite.

Catastrophic Fall in 2009 Global Food Production / Commodities / Food Crisis

By: Eric_deCarbonnel

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAfter reading about the droughts in two major agricultural countries, China and Argentina, I decided to research the extent other food producing nations were also experiencing droughts. This project ended up taking a lot longer than I thought. 2009 looks to be a humanitarian disaster around much of the world

To understand the depth of the food Catastrophe that faces the world this year, consider the graphic below depicting countries by USD value of their agricultural output, as of 2006.

The McDonalds Falling US Dollar Menu / Companies / Food Crisis

By: Michael_Pento

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMcDonalds Corp (MCD) held its annual meeting last Thursday, May 22 nd , and stated it has no plans to tamper with its highly successful dollar menu, which accounts for 14% of the company's sales. However, The Golden Arches must wish that its dollar menu was on the McGold standard instead of being based on a currency that has fallen 40% in the last 6 years. That dollar decline is putting the squeeze on the Oak Brook, Illinois-based firm, as agricultural input prices are surging while consumer food prices are only up about 4% since last year.

Global Food Shock / Commodities / Food Crisis

By: Jennifer_Barry

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAs an American, I've taken for granted that I can get just about any food I want at the supermarket. In fact, the number of choices are dizzying. I never really thought about the tenuous chain between myself and my food. Less than 1% of the U.S. population is employed in agriculture, and 40% of these farmers are 55 or older. 1 The chain of transportation that brings goods to the stores is tenuous and depends on a few key railways and truck drivers. Supermarkets could experience spot shortages if the proposed trucker strike gains momentum or more drivers quit the business.

Global Food Riots Protend Trouble for the US Dollar / Commodities / Food Crisis

By: Chris_Galakoutis

On a trip to Canada recently I couldn't help but notice the extensive media coverage paid to the worldwide food price inflation, as well as the riots breaking out in many countries over food shortages.

And of course the list of reasons given by the so-called ‘economists' interviewed are completely devoid of the one all important reason fueling what may arguably become an epic food price inflation: the declining value of the US dollar.

Rice Prices Fall Sharply After Food Crisis Rally on Government Export Controls / Commodities / Food Crisis

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe price of rice finally started to moderate this week, with rice futures sinking for a fifth straight day. Rice has retreated 11.6% on the Chicago Board of Trade since hitting an all-time high last Thursday.

But this decline is likely just the start for rice prices, which have been artificially inflated by government controls and may continue to plummet by as much as 20%.

Rationing- Food for Thought / Politics / Food Crisis

By: John_Browne

‘Food, glorious food' conjures up the image of Oliver Twist and his brother orphans wailing over a shortage of porridge in Dickensian England.

Last week, a food shortage became an American reality. Costco Warehouse, Wal-Mart and other food stores limited the purchase of certain food staples in bulk form. Purchases of rice in California and of oil and flour in Queens were restricted. Customers were angry, voicing strong concern and questioning whether the situation would worsen.
