The Ageing American Farmer is a serious

..........issue in the United State.

The bulk of the Illegal Hispanic immigration is actually NECESSARY to keep American Food Granary intact.
Some 10% of the population is required for the 3D work.
This equates to some 20 to 30 million ILLEGAL HISPANICS workforce in the American nation.

BUT if the owners of the American farms is to pass on..............

Who's going to hire the ILLEGALS?

Cheerios!

The American farmer above seems

..........to be able to "supervise" his huge hispanic illegal workforce.

American medical advances could keep him "on the job" till he is 90 or 100 years old.

cheerios!

Speculators and food price rises

Published on Saturday, June 18, 2011 by the Guardian/UK Food Price Explosion 'Will Devastate the World's Poor'
After a 40% rise in global prices over the past year, droughts and floods threaten to seriously damage this year's harvest
by Rupert Neate

Food prices will soar by as much as 30% over the next 10 years, the United Nations and Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development have predicted.

Angel Gurría, secretary-general of the OECD, said that any further increase in global food prices, which have risen by 40% over the past year, will have a "devastating" impact on the world's poor and is likely to lead to political unrest, famine and starvation. "People are going to be forced either to eat less or find other sources of income."

The joint UN Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO) and OECD report predicted that the cost of cereals is likely to increase by 20% and the price of meat, particularly chicken, may soar by up to 30%.

World food prices are already at a near-record high as droughts and floods threaten to seriously damage this year's harvest. The report said the global harvest is in a "critical" condition and warned that prices will continue to rise until depleted stocks are rebuilt.

Global food prices hit a record high in February, prompting demonstrations across the world. The last extreme food price rise in 2008 led to riots in 20 countries across three continents.

Gurría called on world leaders to ban speculators from pushing up food prices. The G20 will meet in Paris next week to thrash out a deal aimed at imposing strict rules on trading in food commodities and policies that distort global food market.

90% of the globe's GNP belongs to only a few

................sets of states combined to make up 50% of the globe's population.

This are China, USA, European Union, British Club, Asian Trade Route States and the BR(I)MS states.

The rest are mostly AGRICULTURE SOCIETIES with small urban population!
Subsistence farming to be more accurate.
FOOD prices rise will only affect the URBAN poor of such societies.

For the richer states, it will affect the highly urbanized states, with big urban slum poor especially in BR(I)MS states!
China with "food price controls" would not be terribly affected.

cheerios!
