Tortilla Price Increase

with 2 comments

It’s amazing how in such a short space of time issues that weren’t once an issue to you come to light and start to bother you.

12 months ago I’d never paid any attention to economics wider than the last £100 in my current account, but suddenly I find my interests embroiled in the workings of international economics.

I now pay attention when I hear stories of food price increases as I can now see how little changes can make a big difference that is felt across the globe.

My attention was drawn today to the Mexican Tortilla Price increase, an issue that will impact many millions of people in Mexico and other places no doubt. I wonder exactly how we can avoid this kind of crisis in the UK? Exactly just how much would prices need to increase by to cause major protests?

It’s scary stuff . . . and my eyes have been opened to an entirely new way of thinking.
