Corn prices are up 46% in a year in the US. Gas is over $4 a gallon retail in some areas now.
In Guatemala, the price of corn is also soaring due to
it being exported for use as biofuel in the US. This means the poor there may no longer be able to afford this basic and important food. Corn prices are expected to go much higher too. All so Americans can continue to drive their cars without concern for comsumption.
But Americans are hurting too, all greatly due to the US “policy of belligerent imperial capitalism” which is now hurting its own citizenry.
