So It Begins

Given these recent trends (here, here, and here) in the world’s ability to produce and sell rice, Wal-Mart has responded thus. I told Persephone a few weeks ago after reading about food price riots in Egypt, “The good news is commodity inflation is a lot worse in the Third World (or, as they prefer, the Developing World), which means they’ll revolt long before we do.”

In a somewhat related note, I really love post-apocalyptic movies, but usually I can’t watch them because they’re rated R (after all, the Apocalypse isn’t going to be a pretty act to follow). But now I’ve got a reason that it’s okay for me to watch them: preparing for the future.
