On today’s edition of Coffee and Markets, Brad Jackson is joined by Scott Lincicome to discuss McDonald’s nixing the Dollar Menu, how rising food costs contributed to that decision and why you pay nearly twice as much for staples like milk, butter and sugar than our friends overseas.

We’re brought to you by Stephen Clouse and Associates and The Heritage Foundation’s Morning Bell. If you’d like to email us, you can do so at bjackson[at]coffeeandmarkets.com. We hope you enjoy the show.
