More problems with food prices

More and more worried about this situation. See these stories

1. World Bank warning about South Asian poor at severe risk of food shortages and inflation.

2. India pledging to crack down on hoarders. The Indian public distribution system is not fit for purpose and it is full of corruption... and this is deeply worrying for me.

3. Thailand is pledging supplies to importers. They need to be careful, apparently there are now reports of people stealing crops!

but who will pay for this rise in prices? inflation is the silent killer of the poor and Indians know about this. This is getting very very dangerous.
