I'll give the entire trip a fabulous report. From a stock point of view besides ADM buying GrainCorp, Ford today announced closing all its plants ending about 10,000 jobs. They said it was 4 times more costly than cars built in Europe, and 10 times more than Asia. Things really ARE more expensive here. I figure most cars are about 25-30% more with the AUS$ about at parity with the ours. Food and gasoline are all about the same percentage higher or more.
