'Chaffing' Under Easy Money

"QE2 is clearly not to blame for the burning of the Middle East, but it has a hand in driving up food and energy prices around the world. Unfortunately, rising food and energy prices act like a tax on the global consumer. You need to spend more of your paycheck to fill up your gas tank or to buy a loaf of bread."

Egypt, others are 'chaffing' under Fed easy money policy -
The increasing cost of bread in particular has caused many riots in impoverished countries; Tunisia and Egypt are just the most recent examples."
