The Burrito Index: Consumer Prices Have Soared 160% Since 2001

The Burrito Index: Consumer Prices Have Soared 160% Since 2001:

Calculating the real inflation rate

In our household, we measure inflation with the “Burrito Index”: How much has the cost of a regular burrito at our favorite taco truck gone up?

Since we keep detailed records of expenses (a necessity if you’re a self-employed free-lance writer), I can track the real-world inflation of the Burrito Index with great accuracy: the cost of a regular burrito from our local taco truck has gone up from $2.50 in 2001 to $5 in 2010 to $6.50 in 2016.

That’s a $160% increase since 2001; 15 years in which the official inflation rate reports that what $1 bought in 2001 can supposedly be bought with $1.35 today.

FEMA Contractor: Unrest After 395% Food Price Spike Coming Soon

FEMA Contractor: Unrest After 395% Food Price Spike Coming Soon:

Preparations by various cogs of the national security complex, including FEMA, indicate a coming worldwide food shortage — and a resulting crisis marked by extreme civil unrest around the globe.

As Motherboard noted of two reports published previously by CNA Corporation, but which largely escaped attention, the world’s food supply could be insufficient to maintain even current populations much further into the future. And the crisis — which several factors indicate may already be underway — may begin to worsen considerably as early as 2020.

Employing a desktop game simulation of the conditions of a global food shortage, titled “Food Chain Reaction,” CNA’s Institute for Public Research brought together “65 officials from the US, Europe, Africa, India, Brazil, and key multilateral and intergovernmental institutions,” Motherboard explained. And the Institute, which oversaw the simulation, “primarily provides scientific research services for the Department of Homeland Security and the Federal Emergency Management Agency [FEMA].”

Grocery Store Forced to Review Trading Rules After Shelves Go Empty:

United Kingdom — London’s new EasyFoodstore has been forced to review its trading rules after it had to close temporarily when bargain-hungry shoppers emptied the shelves. The mega-discount food store is the latest venture of EasyJet entrepreneur, Stelios Haji-Ioannou.

The millionaire businessman was inspired by the idea after seeing the widespread use of food banks in Britain. “This is another way the Easy brand can serve the less well-off,” the budget airline owner said.

Collapsing Venezuela Is Out of Food: “Prepping Became Illegal”, Long Lines Mandatory

Just imagine what will happen, when the entire financial system will collapse.

Collapsing Venezuela Is Out of Food: “Prepping Became Illegal”, Long Lines Mandatory:

This article was written by Daisy Luther and originally published at TheOrganicPrepper.ca.

Editor’s Comment: The current crisis is very unfortunate for the population of Venezuela, which includes large numbers of very poor people. It is a prime example of a socialist nightmare state, where obsession with central control and distribution has forced people to turn to the black market and alternative solutions to survive.

Apparently, it is only going to get much worse. And like the political climate of a country that has outlawed guns and implemented tyranny, the autocratic government outlawed prepping, and only encouraged its people to pray for an economic miracle of socialism that would never come, while they wait dependent, hungry.

Venezuela Is Out of Food: Here’s What an Economic Collapse Really Looks Like

by Daisy Luther

Venezuela is out of food.

After several years of long lines, rationing, and shortages, the socialist country does not have enough food to feed its population, and the opposition government has declared a “nutritional emergency.” This is just the most recent nail in the beleaguered country’s slow, painful economic collapse.

Massive food inflation strikes Canada… consumers paying $8 for a head of cauliflower, $3 for a single cucumber.

Massive food inflation strikes Canada… consumers paying $8 for a head of cauliflower, $3 for a single cucumber:

Due to a “perfect storm” of inflationary factors – not the least of which being the continuing drop in oil prices – Canadians are seeing the effects of a weakening currency reflected in food prices at the supermarket.

$3 cucumbers, $8 for a head of cauliflower, grapes at $10 per bag – the spiraling cost of foods, particularly those imported from Canada’s neighbor to the south, has consumers there reeling from sticker shock.

Fruit, Vegetable Prices Soar In Canada: “If You Insist On Eating Tomatoes, You’re Going To Pay For It”

Fruit, Vegetable Prices Soar In Canada: “If You Insist On Eating Tomatoes, You’re Going To Pay For It”:

Earlier this month, we documented the surging price of fresh produce in Canada, where the plunging loonie is creating a nightmare for shoppers in grocery aisles across the country.

Because Canada imports more than three quarters of its fresh fruits and vegetables, the inexorable decline of the Canadian dollar has driven up prices on everything from cucumbers to cauliflower to tomatoes, and as we showed via a series of tweets from incredulous supermarket shoppers, Canadians are not pleased.

“Three bucks. For a cucumber,” one shopper wrote.

“Had a similar reaction when I saw the price of cauliflower,” another said. “Welcome to the future..”

Canadians Panic As Food Prices Soar On Collapsing Currency:

It was just yesterday when we documented the continuing slide in the loonie, which is suffering mightily in the face of oil’s inexorable decline.

As regular readers are no doubt acutely aware, Canada is struggling through a dramatic economic adjustment, especially in Alberta, the heart of the country’s oil patch. Amid the ongoing crude carnage the province has seen soaring property crime, rising food bank usage and, sadly, elevated suicide rates, as Albertans struggle to comprehend how things up north could have gone south (so to speak) so quickly.

The plunging loonie “can only serve to worsen the death of the ‘Canadian Dream'” we said on Tuesday.

Food Costs Soar Most In 3 Years

El Nino hits dinner table; food costs soar most in 3 years:

The effects of El Nino are starting to reach the dinner table, with global food prices rising the most in three years on supply concerns for everything from New Zealand milk to sugar in Brazil and Southeast Asian palm oil.

An index of 73 food prices increased 3.9 percent, the biggest jump since July 2012, to 162 in October, the United Nations Food & Agriculture Organization wrote in a report Thursday.

The return of the El Nino weather phenomenon is changing weather conditions around the world, damaging crops with too much rain in some areas and not enough in others.
