Shhh.. don't let them know the demand curve for bacon is perfectly inelastic.

(it's been a while, but that is what I meant to say, right? demand is the same at any price??) Wow it has been a while...

hog farmers dropped their heard numbers back a couple years ago because of recession and now there is a shortage. pork bellies are trading at an all time high. also, summer is usually peak pork eating season. it is currently the perfect pork storm.

All available pork was put into bills. Now there is too much demand with too little supply.

if you think bacon is high, you should check out the cost of frying pans.
