"Come the harvest season, there will be chaos," says Toshiso Kosako, recently resigned as senior nuclear adviser to Japan's PM. "There will certainly be some radiation contamination (in rice) ... setting off a scandal." Mr. Kosako blasts the government for continually understating the radiation danger in order to calm the populace and ease the cleanup cost.

    Increased food import demands could cause another short term rise in some commodity prices. There might also be an impact on the Yen, which would alter the Dollar Index slightly. The larger grain producing regions of the world, and related companies, might do slightly better in the near future, if and only if this prediction is correct.

    There is a very old television commercial which starts with a housewife phoning her husband at work:

     

    Wife: “Dear, the rosebush on the side of the garage died.”

     

    Husband: “That’s too bad. How did the rosebush die?”

     

    Wife: “Well, the rosebush died when the garage burned down.”

     

    Husband: “The garage burned down!?!?! How did the garage burn down?”

     

    Wife: “Well, the garage caught on fire from the house.”

     

    I worry sometimes that the people in charge of Fukushima are still telling us that the rosebush has died. And my location is *directly* in the path of the radiation. Another extreme earthquake at that location would turn my Seeking Alpha into Selling Everything.
