what is your sense of "dramatically in 5 years...what % ?
of course we all know inflation has gone up....I think the fed number is overall about 12 % since 2009.
Interestingly, 2009, your year of comparison, had significant price drops in many categories. 2008 and 2009 had price drops in food for example.
gasoline is up around a buck per gallon since 2009....but has been relatively flat for 2010-2014. Electricity and natural gas (eneryg from homes) is down since 2009. Not sure about cars....I think my 2008 Accord would be about a grand more now . Food, definately in the last 1.5 years, not sure about the five year trend. Other consumer products actually vary...electronics same or down (I just replaced my 2009 smart phone for zero, and the TV I bought in 2010 sells for 40 % of that cost). Housing defiantely down overall (but depends where you live)...college..not sure.
not sure about clothes...I would have thought they have not gone up much. Interestingly when I look up the 2009 apparel index and compare it to 2014...it's up 6 % in five years...which meets my sense of not going up much.
I guess that is why the US gov't reported inflation of 12 % since 2009. :) Where did you hear they report none ?
nothing ? OK I though about it... since that is a wrong answer (nothing), you go into the special dummy filter yahoo just installed.
and you thought picking an unrelated topic for an analogy was a good idea ?
did you know that the National guard is not suppose to detain them ?
I think you should have looked up the origin of the ethanol initiatives...would have possilbly resulted in an informative post.
"Gasoline containing up to 10% ethanol began a decades-long growth in the United States in the late 1970s. The demand for ethanol produced from field corn was spurred by the discovery that methyl tertiary butyl ether (MTBE) was contaminating groundwater. MTBE's use as an oxygenate additive was widespread due to mandates in the Clean Air Act amendments of 1992 to reduce carbon monoxide emissions. MTBE in gasoline had been banned in almost 20 states by 2006. Suppliers were concerned about potential litigation and a 2005 court decision denying legal protection for MTBE. MTBE's fall from grace opened a new market for ethanol, its primary substitute. Corn prices at the time were around US$2 a bushel. Farmers saw a new market and increased production. This demand shift took place at a time when oil prices were rising.
The steep growth in twenty-first century ethanol consumption was driven by federal legislation aimed to reduce oil consumption and enhance energy security. The Energy Policy Act of 2005 required use of 7.5×109 US gal (28×106 m3) of renewable fuel by 2012, and the Energy Independence and Security Act of 2007 raised the standard, to 36×109 US gal (140×106 m3) of annual renewable fuel use by 2022. Of this requirement, 16×109 US gal (61×106 m3) had to be advanced biofuels, defined as renewable fuels that reduce greenhouse gas emissions by at least 50%"
you are welcome
he just wants to relive the days of shooting the coyote in the Austin Park. sorry, I can't let it go :)
nah, based on your credibility so far it's just oral flatuance
send them your ideas on how poverty and drug consumption and trafficing could be stopped. This reminds me a bit of what I heard yesterday about the 1.4 million comments the FTC got about "internet neutrality"...they said almost all are useless....most people just give some vague rant about the internet, might have some ideas that only serve their purpose, but are typically worthless. It takes a whole lot of effort to really think through issues from all sides, and make real progress.
probably as soon as you become responsible.
In my experience all organizations are a bit self serving...don't take it so personal...it's not like they bother you at all.
if I were you, I would be mad at those 3500 volunteers that said they would show up at the border...they let you down.
lucky....is there any words he could say that would satisfy you ?
I think you are the chairman of the dept of second guessing others.
then how did you post it ? If you tried posting links, you should know that gets deleted. You should also know you may have to wait a couple seconds for a post to "take" before you navigate away...those are the two most common reasons when people post how yahoo "deletes" things.
looks like it already "saw" 120. within a few trading hours of your prediciton.
why do you post...your predicitons are not that good, you can't influence a stock as widely traded as MON....
big problem is credibility of the posters. So far I have heard that 3500 volunteers were going to stop the illegasl, Texas National guard (who would have orders not to detain anyone), and now the border union is "ready" to testify.
folks calling the feds incompetent, and showing a higher level of incompetence themselves..that is what I see on this board.
