Supply Rebalanced

Families have a rough time getting their children the nutritional food they need. I often see them going to fast food restaurants to buy cheaper food. That 1$ happy meal at mcdonalds is cheaper than buying apples at a local grocery store (it is where I am). If the right type of farms are funded more than that of the unwanted foods, the more nutritional choices should come in lower prices.

I just know some general economics. I also know that if your going to start somewhere, start with food.

It is hard to get the sweet spot of prices of farmed foods. Once you increase the supply then you also decrease the price of the goods. When you decrease the price then you decrease the amount of farmers. Then that reduces the supply once again and it is a whole cycle.
