Dairy prices are predicted to double next year as the industry prepares to choke off the milk supply by slaughtering more than 100 thousand cows. It’s hard to imagine any other industry that could so blatantly manipulate prices without attracting the attention of the Federal Trade Commission.
Now, obviously, the USDA has itself actively manipulated milk prices for generations. But I still can’t begin to understand how dairy farmers can conspire initiate an organized mass slaughter without prompting lawsuits from antitrust regulators. (Thanks, Meghan.) Link.
