How do you figure? If there are 10 million less people buying meat, you think the supermarkets are going to continue stocking 10 million more carcasses than people are buying?

Meat is heavily subsidized in the US, so yes.

They don't subsidise meat so it sits on the shelf and rots, the subsidies only cover meat that gets sold. Supermarkets aren't going to stock something that doesn't sell, regardless of the low price they pay for it compared to the prices internationally.
