  •  food prices will go up this year (7+ / 0-)

    as a result of last year's monster drought, and since neither Obama nor Romney said a word about it during the campaign, it will come as quite a shock to people when it happens.

    The Arab Spring was partly ascribed to a climate-change related spike in food prices. The same sort of thing could happen here.

    Factor in the Beltway obsession with balanced budgets and slashing the social safety net, and you have a recipe for deepening economic crisis and unrest.
