Who here is paying attention to the Economy?? Hopefully all of us!
We should be re-entering a bull market for commodities which means, assuming minimal government intervention, we should be see higher grain prices and higher fertilizer prices.
My forcast is we will have excessive government intervention to suppress their lies (for lack of a better word) regarding inflationary food prices. This will cause high volitility in the grain markets. Pretty big swings. I think Oil will soon exceed 100 per barrel - not because of demand but due to inflation (similar to what we saw in the late 70's). This will cause our fertilizer costs to go way up as well.
Eventually - our government will lose control of the market prices for food and we'll have some interesting years - hopefully making enough money for the years they over surpressed the market.
Whatever the case - I see the next 5-8 years as historical, hard, and sometimes profitable. Rely on your history, not what you see/hear on the news!!
