That’s right, blame America for high food costs

May 14, 2008

OK, the US has offshored how many jobs to India, millions of them??, and so naturally we believe that Indians are now getting (relatively) rich so they are driving up food prices by demanding you know, Western style diets with meat and dairy and stuff. Something President Bush said to that effect.

One Indian official said in response to this sentiment that

if Americans slimmed down to the weight of middle-class Indians, “many hungry people in sub-Saharan Africa would find food on their plates.” 

and

  that the money spent in the United States on liposuction to get rid of fat from excess consumption could be funneled to feed famine victims.

So we should expect Tata Motors to start sponsoring the TV shows “Celebrity Fit Club” and the “Biggest Loser”? And wouldn’t lipo procedures be cheaper in India?

Well!, they’re mad at something Bush said about the Indian economy, nothing new there. People in the US are mad about Bush says about the US economy.
