FORGET OIL, THE NEW GLOBAL CRISIS IS FOOD

Jan 09. A new crisis is emerging, a global food catastrophe that will reach further and be more crippling than anything the world has ever seen.

The credit crunch and the reverberations of soaring oil prices around the world will pale in comparison to what is about to transpire, Donald Coxe, global portfolio strategist at BMO Financial Group said at the Empire Club's 14th annual investment outlook in Toronto on Thursday. "It's not a matter of if, but when," he warned investors. "It's going to hit this year hard."

Mr. Coxe said the sharp rise in raw food prices in the past year will intensify in the next few years amid increased demand for meat and dairy products from the growing middle classes of countries such as China and India as well as heavy demand from the bio-fuels industry.

"The greatest challenge to the world is not US$100 oil; it's getting enough food so that the new middle class can eat the way our middle class does, and that means we've got to expand food output dramatically," he said.

 The impact of tighter food supply is already evident in raw food prices, which have risen 22% in the past year.
