Name: Bao Dang ID: 168674989 Crop Prices Soar on Global Harvest Woes Even though Americans live in prosperity, and we seem to have plenty of foods, not all of us know that we are living in a world of scarcity. The article “Prices Soar on Crop Woes” proves that food supplies are scarce just like many other goods, and changes in their prices will change the distribution of income and jobs among different groups of people in our society. First, food supplies are scarce because the demand of food consumption is higher than the limited amount of food being produced. Crops produced are limited due to the amount and quality of cultivated area, water, technology, labor, and weather. In this situation, the amount of global harvests of key crops decreases because of the harsh weather and natural disasters around the world such as the dry weather in South America, floods in Australia, and drought in Russia…. However, at the same time, a rising global population increases the pressure on food resources. As a result of decreasing in supply and increasing in demand, crop prices increase.

    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.
