I don’t want to be a Debbie Downer, but is anyone else completely freaked out about the economic state of the world? I have dozens of bookmarks of articles and news items but am never sure if I should share them or not. Anyway:
Soybean prices up 87% in the past year.
Wheat up 130%.
Philippines is having to borrow rice from other countries.
World Bank is warning 100 million people could be pushed into poverty.
Protests in Cameroon, Senegal, Mauritania, Haiti, Indonesia.
I’m not even going to touch oil prices right now.
