Though the kinds of soil to produce wheat, rice, corn, tobacco, grapes and flower are not the same, but I think there is relation between some food prices and the consumption of beer, wine, tobacco and flower.|
The farmers or producers are profit-driven. Supply and demand theory-- More people drink beer, wine,smoke and use flower will not make the producers to switch to producing staple food or vegetable and food.When the profit from producing staple food is catching the prices of producing beer, tobacco, wine and flower, there'll be a chance.
Of course agriculture technology can help to increase staple food production. But there're other factors that affect the production such as weather change and human behaviour change. It's not realistic to rely on the weather. The things common people can do to help curbing food prices hike are:
1. cut down comsumption of beer etc.
2. call your government to ban so-and-so activities
(make fuel from staple food)
(throwing tomatoes, oranges in some festivals)
what more? ban smoking, ban drinking after 10pm?
