Urgent Evoke

A crash course in changing the world.

Regarding the food security topic, I informed myself about agricultural issues in Germany. One in my opinion interesting topic are milk prices in germany. already, milk is not an expensive good, and it is to be questioned if the current prices for one liter of milk are fair (from 45 to 85 cents/liter). Furthermore, in 2015 Germany will leave the so-called "milk quota regulation" of the european union. until now, every european country was allowed to produce a certain amount of milk to avoid over-production and to regulate prices. already now, milk prices are not very stable. Although the milk quota is not the best solution for the all-time over- and underproduction of milk and the price changements coming with this, milk prices will become even more unstable. This is doc**ented by the following article: http://www.agrarheute.com/preisvolatilitaet. I am of the opinion that a minimum price for a liter of milk should be set by the government, p.ex 75 cents/liter. although this is contrarily to our economic system, farmers must be protected from changing milk prices coming from speculative buying and selling on the world market.

I also do not think that people, who love to drink milk or to eat products made of milk would stop buying them, because they are more expensive. I believe that most of the products here in Germany are sold to cheap. We must become more conscious again about the quality of the products and their production process, then we are willing to pay more for it.
