A rice vendor reaches out for an Indonesian rupiah note at a market in Jakarta January 13, 2011. Global food prices hit a record last month, outstripping levels that prompted riots in 2008, and key grains could climb even further as weather patterns give cause for concern, the United Nations food agency said. The Indonesian government has already decided to import 1.3 million tonnes of rice from Thailand and Vietnam ahead of the local harvest in February, after not importing it in the past two years.

A shop assistant places a sign informing customers they have run out of cheap chicken at the wholesale food market Mercado Central, in La Matanza district outside Buenos Aires, November 24, 2010. Argentina's economy will grow at one of the world's fastest clips this year at around 9 percent, thanks partly to booming retail sales. The downside is annual inflation estimated privately at between 25 percent and 30 percent. Although wage hikes have helped offset the impact of rising costs, inflation is spawning changes to consumer spending. While some Argentines cut back, others seize on promotions to buy now rather than watch their savings lose value. To match Feature ARGENTINA-INFLATION/ Photo taken November 24, 2010.

China's inflation soared past forecasts to a 28-month high in November and showed signs of spreading beyond food prices, putting pressure on the government to tighten monetary policy. China is striding into an era where higher inflation will become a more permanent feature of its economic landscape, a shift that the government, long assumed to have zero tolerance for rising prices, is showing signs of accepting.
