Food industry

Food prices are climbing because most of the industry is no longer sustainable. Shortages shake the pricing.

A review of a new book, World on the Edge: How to Prevent Environmental and Economic Collapse, by Lester R. Brown details the dangers.

“The global economy’s most pressing challenge is not so much a diminishing supply of fossil fuel, but rather food shortages, climbing prices and the unrest that can follow,” notes one review.  “Food security emerges as a new priority for nations, complicated by long-distance transportation and an over-reliance on fossil fuels.”

The book’s title may recall a soap opera favorite. Yet with food shortages and speculators investing in the food industry, the review suggests another name for the book: “12 Investment Mega-Trends for the 21st Century.”
