The Global Interdependence Center, in conjunction with the Memphis Economics Club and the University of Memphis Fogelman College of Business, is bringing together the world's experts on agriculture and inflation to discuss these issues. What is the view of the Federal Reserve concerning food inflation, its effects on US monetary policy and the transmission of the policy throughout the world? What is the current state of the supply and demand in the grain and meat markets, and the outlook for 2012? Will technology respond and how will the industry adapt? Is ethanol a boon or a burden to the Agricultural industry and what does the future hold for this alternative energy?
Agriculture is changing as the demands of the Emerging Markets challenge the ability of current technology to meet its needs. Higher prices are the signal, what will be the response? Join us in Memphis February 8th to listen and join the debate. If you eat, you are already involved!
