The other day I went to buy some horseradish.

I looked at the ingredients, and plenty different kinds of horseradish had corn of some kind.

Corn starch, high fructose corn syrup, and other types of corn.

Why is there so much corn in our food?

The answer is pretty simple.

And, believe it or not, it goes all the way back to the Great Depression.

The one that happened nearly a hundred years ago.

Why in the heck do events from a hundred years ago make it likely to find corn based ingredients in horseradish?

Well, imagine you were a farmer, way back in the day.

And you borrowed a bunch of money to keep your farm going.

So long as you could sell your stuff, you could pay back your loan.

But then the depression hit.

And prices DROPPED very quickly.

So quickly, that even if farmers sold ALL their stuff, they STILL wouldn't make enough to pay their loans.

So like plenty of people walked away from their houses during the last financial crisis, plenty of farmers were bailing on their farms.

Just packing everything up and leaving.

The super genius government came up with a super genius plan.

To make a law saying prices couldn't go below a certain amount.

Unfortunately, (or fortunately) government goofs don't have magic wands.

They can make laws, but they also have to ENFORCE them.

Just like posting a speed limit won't do squat unless there's a cop hiding behind a sign somewhere.

How do these super genius government goofs keep prices from going too low?

They BUY IT if it goes below a certain price.

To get the price back up.

One of the most messed up laws of economics is called the "law of unintended consequences."

This is when government geniuses come up with an idea.

But then something happens that they DIDN'T expect.

And that unexpected thing almost always makes things WORSE.

Once the super genius government told everybody they would buy CORN if it went below a certain price, so the poor farmers wouldn't go out of business, EVERYBODY started growing corn.

If you grew corn, after all, you would get a GUARANTEED price.

So here we are, nearly a hundred years later, and the CORN industry is HUGE.

They use corn to make ethanol.

They use corn to feed animals.

All the sugar in our food comes from CORN.

If they could build houses out of corn, they would.

The entire country has been CORN HOLED.

What does this have to do with anything?

The laws of economics and human nature are EVERYWHERE.

If you don't understand them, you'll feel like your living in random bizarre clown show land.

But if you DO understand them, EVERYTHING will make sense.

And you can HACK your way into anything you want.

Love, money and everything in between.
