Bee-lieve It or Not

The blog post doesn't discuss the fact that the number of bee colonies is still way down from a 1989 high, nor the ecosystem effects (if any) of beekeepers' more rigorous application of the traditional methods for replacing lost colonies. It does discuss the increase in the price of honey which seems to have been caused by these efforts.

I still feel some more context is needed to understand the full story of what is happening with the honeybees and CCD. While I am a believer in the free market, WHICH IS MAGIC just as the blog post says, something is missing (or several somethings).
