Anonymous 1. The article explains the rapid incline of growth for countries, “[i]n recent years, the world’s developing countries have been growing about 7 percent a year, an unusually rapid rate by historical standards(NY Times).” This is one explanation for the increase in food prices. With more people to feed, that leads to more demand of the products, thus making the price of the product increase. The increase of price is happening at such a rapid rate, because the growth of countries is increasing so rapidly. As well as the population increasing, the stockpiles are growing low as stated, “[t]he world’s grain stockpiles have fallen to the lowest levels in decades(NY Times).” This issue helps increase prices of food because all the products grown now are expected to sell by the farmers. The fact that the farmers know their products will sell gives them the ability to sell their products for more money, which is one reason why the price increases.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
