“Interactive chart of historical daily soybean prices back to 1971. The price shown is in U.S. Dollars per bushel. The current price of soybeans as of June 15, 2018 is $9.0550 per bushel.”
One can also download this nominal data. If one wants to take the time – one could recalculate soybean prices in inflation adjusted (real) terms which might be a nice feature for a 45 year time series.
Of course this might be seen by some as an open invitation to cherry pick and politicize. But lets hope the Usual Suspects avoid this.
Also note that the y-axis is log scaled.
Macro-trends must be communists as only communists use logs to express economic series!
Just imagining if Ed Hanson and PeakIgnorance got together to discuss politics. I can’t put the actual link up because they drop some F-bombs. But if you go to Youtube and search for the “Red State Update” channel, it would give you an approximate idea of how that conversation would go. Of course the videos dated more recently will be more topical.
