Cheap no more
Dec 6th 2007
From The Economist  print edition
Rising incomes in Asia and ethanol subsidies in America have put an end to a long era of falling food prices.
ONE of the odder features of last weekend’s vote in Venezuela was that staple foods were in short supply. Something similar happened in Russia before its parliamentary election. Governments in both oil-rich countries had imposed controls on food prices, with the usual consequences. Such controls have been surprisingly widespread—a knee-jerk response to one of the most remarkable changes that food markets, indeed any markets, have seen for years: the end of cheap food.
