Food inflation and shrinking packages

Posted on Tue, Mar 1, 2011 at 11:55 AM

Is it me or are most people blind to the fact that the cost of food is almost slipping into the realm of hyper-inflation? Packages are shrinking and yet prices stay the same or rise. People seem to take this as a fact of life like death and taxes. What will it take before we have situations here in Canada like those in the Middle East and many other countries because people can't afford to feed themselves? I know that they spend a much greater portion of their wages than we do on buying food but if food keeps going up and wages aren't... and this shit that they did with the using corn to make fuel was a real frakking brilliant idea. All I have to say is pass the Soylent Green crackers and smile... —Soylent Green is People!
