The UN is warning of a food shortage crisis and drawing up
plans for food rations which will hit even middle-class
suburban populations as inflation and economic uncertainty
causes the prices of staple food commodities to skyrocket.

The United Nation's World Food Programme cautions today that
if it doesn't receive more funding, it will have to halt food aid to
developing countries like Mexico and China.

"The WFP crisis talks come as the body sees the emergence of a
“new area of hunger” in developing countries where even
middle-class, urban people are being “priced out of the food
market” because of rising food prices," reports the Financial Times.

The warning coincides with a speech by William Lapp, of US-based
consultancy Advanced Economic Solutions, who cautioned that
rising agricultural raw material prices would translate this year
into sharply higher food inflation.

It also parallels a prediction by Don Coxe, a Chicago-based global
portfolio strategist for BMO Financial Group who correctly forecast
the fall of the dollar and the rise in price of gold and oil years in
advance, who last week spoke of a "global food crisis" which will
cause the world to enter into, "A period of food shortages and
swiftly rising prices," leading to government embargoes.

With the U.S. on the verge of a recession and, as many analysts
have warned, a potential second great depression, those long
scoffed at for hoarding vast quantities of storable food may
unfortunately be able to say "I told you so" if the dollar continues
to deteriorate and people begin to be priced out of the food market.
