One thought on “Food Crisis?

  • Our beloved leader has solved the affordable housing problem by making the market crash.
    Now he’s solving the obesity problem too….

    As renting2 points out, more money spent on necessities means less money to funnel into the housing piggy bank. It also means less money left over to save in pensions or invest in the stockmarket. This will all contribute to the ongoing asset price deflation.
