Dec. 3: Prof. Sylvain Charlebois Discusses Food Prices and Competition
Food prices are making national headlines. In these articles from the National Post and Globe and Mail Professor Sylvain Charlebois, co-author of the 2014 Food Price Index, discusses the lack of change in food prices over the last twelve months. Last year, food prices were predicted to rise between 1.5% to 3.5%, but they rose only 1.2%. Charlebois attributes this lack of change to intense competition among food retailers.
