Demand is the quantity of a product that is desired by buyers. Supply is how much the market can offer. Price is a reflection of supply and demand. Got it?

After Carnival, during the period leading up to the Good Friday (April 14), fish will be in high demand.

The oceans will suddenly become ?rough? and fish will be scarce.

After Good Friday everything, price included, will revert to normal.

It does not stop there.

During the period leading up to Eid (June 26, to be confirmed) there will be an escalation of both meat and vegetable prices.

Moving right along to the period before and on Divali (October 18) vegetable prices will go through the roof.

Food that people refused to eat for the year will suddenly become fit for a king and cost a king?s ransom.

For Christmas (December 25) meat prices will rise like that.

In T&T there is no discrimination; vendors rob Christians, Hindus and Muslims alike. Trini know crime.

If the price of an item rises unjustly men and women will say they bought ten pounds just to show off.

Vendors are fully aware of that fact.

In the USA, Canada and right over in Venezuela it stays on the shelves.

The God of our hearts and realisation does not care what we eat.

We all age, get ill and perish, there is no discrimination.
