Potash (NYSE:POT), Monsanto (NYSE:MON), Mosaic (NYSE:MOS) Confirm Economy Not Growing

The lackluster performance of agriculture stocks like Potash (NYSE:POT), Monsanto (NYSE:MON) and Mosaic (NYSE:MOS) confirm what most of us suspect, and that is the economy isn't growing, and the temporary and illusory effects of the government stimulus program aren't sustainable.

Agriculture stocks are one of the ways to watch to see if there is economic growth, and their performance will tell you a lot one way or the other.

What this says is there is no growth from within the companies, and that means demand for products is down, which brings us to the conclusion the economy, at best, is stagnant, and maybe even contracting some.
