Good article highlighting the unintended consequences Russ.
However I would put in a counter that if you followed that trolley around (of the person who can’t ‘afford’ the dearer milk), you would most likely find quite a few less nutritional foods purchased for higher prices. Then when you add the alcohol, cigarets and junk food purchased the issue is definitely not an affordability problem. More of an education and empowerment issue
My biggest beef is with the supermarkets and their price on water. How can a product so easily processed (literally turning a tap on and bottled) be dearer than milk. Why don’t the supers squeeze the price of it equivalent to the real cost of processing milk?. Or are they inkahoots with the big end of of town water merchants (Pepsi, Coke etc etc)?
