    Good article read with lots of other links....I found this one interesting. I'm also reading several of the links
    Bank of America is THE godfather of Hell with Wells Fargo running neck and neck. When the world ends the only things that will be left are cockroaches, Walmart, Wells Fargo and Bank of America. Not necessarily in that order. The order remains to be seen.

    I am glad to see pet food mentioned (although briefly) there- even if you feed a high quality, grain free food, the cost of that will rise too- the cost of the meat in your pet's diet will increase. I think just bout ALL cat/dog foods, from the generic grocery store junk to the top of the line super expensive brands will rise visibly. Time to consider putting away a few extar bags of food for your furry friends, so if things get really tight for a spell after these price increases kick in you're all set.

    I think I will consider stick piling a little heavier than usual beans, rice and canned veggies. Don't use canned too much, but will do in a pinch, and sounds like prices are going no where but up next year!
