>price of food keeps climbing
>Some banks avoid trading food, since they find it immoral to directly make money off of people's hunger.
Bullshit. Bankers have no morals. It's why we all went into finance because we have no qualms casting lots on the future and security of societies, and being the prime reason they rise and fall anymore.
Seriously, when was the last time an empire fell because of revolution? Soviet Union, the British Empire, the French in the 60s, Japan, and now China and USA. We are the force that destroys nations now, not famine or war.
>bankers have no morals
Lol knew that was coming from some poorfag
Source: BNP Paribas doesn't trade food commodities, and they are not the only one. Also keep in mind how bad it would look if a bank were responsible for directly fucking with people's food and hunger.
Well, someone must be buying it. One would naturally come to the conclusion that dropping oil prices would cause a general reduction of consumer goods pricing, because of materials and transportation, but that clearly hasn't happened. The current price floor must not be because of production cost, but (most likely international) trade.
people be hungry yo.
then google fears why people think it will come again. Also weather.
i.e. do your own research pleb.
it is just a calculated decision that it would hurt thier politcail connections more than it would help their bottom line.
besides this whole topic is a red herring from OP's point, because food commodities futures have been traded forever. http://futures.tradingcharts.com/marketquotes/ZC.html
