The Best Time to Squirrel Away Some Nuts

Food Storage Prepperby MN Gordon

“Sell in May and go away,” goes the old Wall Street adage. The general rule is to sell stocks on May 1, hold cash through the summer and into the fall, and then re-enter the stock market on Halloween Day.

Provisions in the new farm bill making its way through Congress are designed to end this practice.

Contained within the more than 1,000 pages of the Agriculture Reform, Food, and Jobs Act of 2012 which passed the U.S. Senate on June 21, is a provision to eliminate direct payments and purchases. The bill replaces this policy with government subsidies for insurance that guarantees farmers against losses in the event of crop failure or other losses of income (e.g., a market-wide overproduction (Read More....)
