    howz?

    UPDATE: Nevermind. I get your point. But it would not be accurate because it wouldnt factor-in supply and demand that may cause the price of bread to be lower or higher.

    sweet more info....

    I got side tracked into a conspiracy movie site.... listing all the google video versions of them.

    I still love the "ice" market and whoever started freezing water and selling it. It is amazing what people will pay for. Some of the highest profit generating business models are based off of basic items and products themselves. Still confuses me as to why so many people are NOT wealthy seeing how easy it is to make money. Freeze water then sell it, tada! brilliant.

    A bread market exists, how much does it cost to make a loaf yourself? Corner the bread market with local efforts.

    I had to modify the query ("If at first you don't succeed..." ). If you type something in google, before you hit enter, a drop down list will appear. I typed in prices of bread and the sixth suggestion on the list was "prices of bread over time."


    http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q=price+of+bread+over+time&btnG=Googl e+Search&aq=6&oq=%22price+of+bread+


    I clicked on the third link, which took me here: http://www.foodtimeline.org/foodfaq5.html

    Lots of good info on that page actually.

    Indeed! I started this site to track such "things". And have been reading a bunch of material on grey markets, black markets, underground economies.. After I'm done moving I'll be expanding on the site to include more data on wider array of subjects, news, information and such...
    If anyone is interested in posting material/articles to promote their site or what not. hit me up....
