    Talk about a World of Shortages
    posted on: January 17, 2008 | about stocks: DIA / QQQQ / SPY Print Email Looks like the mainstream press is finally starting to catch on...

    It really is different this time (the most dangerous words ever said) ... too many humans wanting to live a modern (read: urban) lifestyle. As I've written before 2006 was the first year more humans lived in urban settings than rural. If this urban residence rate ever gets to 60-65% I truly wonder how the world will cope. In economic theory, prices will shoot up (far more than they have now), but short of telling people to "go back to how they lived 20 years ago" in these emerging markets I am unclear how it will play out from there.......

    • thing the author overlooks is how much fallow land in this country can be brought back into cultivation....if the market demand is there, nobody can crank up production like the American farmer...Bunge will continue to be the winner in this and so will Deere...a golden age of farming is about to return in this country....much like what happened after the Civil War.
