...And "Helicopter Ben" Bernanke Worries About DEflation?

We mentioned that the price of soybeans, corn, oats, and wheat were up (limit) during last week.

They're not alone.

Cotton prices touched their highest level since Reconstruction on Friday...

...Along with cotton, prices of so-called soft commodities such as sugar, orange juice and coffee all have soared.

Meantime, the 30-year T-Bond yield increased to 3.9++% in yesterday's trading.

The (D) spend/borrow/spend/borrow/spend/borrow has its effects, you know.
