Rising Food Prices Part 4: Can Regenerative Agriculture Solve the Food Crisis?

This is the 4th in a series of interviews I am conducting to try to better understand why food prices have been rising, where they are going as we move toward a potential food crisis, how this will impact the evolving landscape of food availability, and what we should do about it.

Allen Williams joins me to talk about conventional, organic, and regenerative agriculture, and how fuel and fertilizer inputs differ between them, and why regenerative agriculture offers the best resilience in the face of what looks like an emerging food crisis.

Allen Williams is a 6th generation family farmer and founding partner of Grass Fed Insights, LLC, Understanding Ag, LLC and the Soil Health Academy. He has consulted with more than 4000 farmers and ranchers in the U.S., Canada, Mexico, South America, and other countries, on operations ranging from a few acres to over 1 million acres.

Allen pioneered many of the early regenerative grazing protocols and forage finishing techniques and now teaches those practices and principles to farmers globally. He is a “recovering academic”, having served 15 years on the faculty at Louisiana Tech University and Mississippi State University. He holds a B.S. and M.S. in Animal Science from Clemson University and a Ph.D. in Livestock Genetics from LSU. He has authored more than 400 scientific and popular press articles, and is an invited speaker at regional, national, and international conferences and symposia.

Allen and his colleagues specialize in whole farm & ranch planning based on the concept of regenerative agriculture. Their approach creates significant “value add” and prepares the landowner for multiple enterprise/revenue stream opportunities that stack enterprises and acres. This approach allows for enhanced profitability and/or investment value. They routinely conduct workshops and seminars across the U.S., Canada, and Mexico.

Over the next month, as part of this series, I will conduct interviews and panel discussions on my podcast in an effort to better understand the issue and what to do about it. Relying primarily on interviews will allow me to better understand the issue while staying focused on finishing my vaccine research so I can ultimately return to finishing my book.

I will eventually be concluding my work on the vaccines with a COVID Vaccine Guide, which I will distribute for free to paid Substack subscribers, those who have pre-ordered my Vitamins and Minerals 101 book, and members of the CMJ Masterpass. Articles in this series that lay out actionable foundations of my future protocol for vaccine side effects will be for paid Substack subscribers and Masterpass members. However, most of them will available for free for the first 48 hours, and all of them will be readable with a free trial. Paid Substack subscribers get immediate access to my COVID Guide, and are entitled to 50% off a membership to the Masterpass as well. You can subscribe or upgrade your subscription here: https://chrismasterjohnphd.substack.com/subscribe

You can pre-order the book here: https://chrismasterjohnphd.com/book

And you can join the Masterpass here: https://themasterpass.chrismasterjohnphd.com/sales-page

Masterpass members get to watch these interviews live, and also have monthly access to a live Q&A with me. The next Q&A session is Wednesday, May 18, 12:00 PM Eastern.

Tony Greer joins me to talk about how lockdowns, politics, and the commodity trade contribute to rising food prices.

Tony Greer is partly responsible for my awareness of the emerging food crisis as I had initially learned of Doomberg from him last year. He has been a macro trader for over thirty years, is a regular on the Real Vision Daily Briefing, and is editor of the Morning Navigator.

Tony brings us unique insights as a trader who saw the rise in commodity prices early. Will the rotation out of tech stocks into commodities continue? What role does this trade have in amplifying food prices itself? Can we use technical signals from the market to gauge the likelihood this problem will get much worse, and to be able to spot light at the end of the tunnel when it finally emerges?

Tony surprised me by suggesting the most important signal to look for as "light at the end of the tunnel" ushering in a reprieve from rising food prices is not so much a technical indicator from the charts or from economic data but rather a sustainable 180-degree reversal in the political hostility to the energy markets. He suggests food prices would take another 7 or more years to calm down once this reversal is sustained.

None of this is financial advice and you must make your own decisions at your own risk. However, we conclude with some thoughts Tony has on how to keep savings safe in an environment like this.

With Dr. Michael Howell, PhD.

This is the second in a series of interviews I am conducting to try to better understand why food prices have been rising, where they are going as we move toward a potential food crisis, how this will impact the evolving landscape of food availability, and what we should do about it.

Michael Howell, PhD joins me to discuss whether "money printing" and the liquidity cycle might be playing a role in rising food prices.

Howell has a PhD in Economics and specializes in analyzing global central bank activities, liquidity trends, and capital flow data across 80 economies. He is CEO of CrossBorder Capital, which he founded in 1996. He developed the quantitative liquidity research methodology while he was Research Director at Salomon Bros. from 1986. He was subsequently appointed Head of Research at Baring Securities in 1992, and was top-ranked “Emerging Market Strategist” by institutional investors for the three years prior to setting up CrossBorder Capital. Michael has worked in financial markets since 1981 and is a regular international conference speaker. He is a qualified US Supervisory Analyst.

You can buy his book, Capital Wars: The Rise of Global Liquidity, here.
