But it does revolve around the US. 40% of wheat.
Interesting article. Now where's my hoe ?

==================================
“The recent rise in global food commodity prices is more than just a short-term blip,” British think-tank Chatham House said in January. “Society will have to decide the value to be placed on food ...”
...
It is estimated that one in four bushels (140.8 litres) of corn from this year’s US corn crop will be diverted to make ethanol.

A good hoer? I didn't think so, I've had crack hoers who've given me a better BJ than she did.

Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.

-President Barack Obama, 1st Inaugural address

If you like rationing you'll loved socialized medicine.

The biggest problems we are facing right now have to do with George Bush trying to bring more and more power into the executive branch and not go through Congress at all and thats what I intend to reverse.

Well, oil was $10+ in 98.

US imports 10M barrels of oil a day and exports 3M bushels of wheat/day, 3M
bushels soybean/day. At $100/bushel, there goes the inbalance..
===================================
The USDA raised its forecast for soybean exports by 20 million bushels to 1.025 billion bushels, "reflecting strong sales, especially to China," for the current marketing year. It pegged wheat exports at 1.225 billion bushels, up 25 million bushels.

The wheat carry-out, estimated at 242 million bushels (6.6 million tonnes), would be the smallest in six decades, USDA said. Chicago traders had expected a soy figure of 153 million bushels and wheat at 263 million bushels.
...
Cotton exports were forecast for 14.5 million bales for 2007/08, down 1.2 million bales from last month's estimate, "due to a combination of lower import demand by China and Turkey and greater competition for market share from India," USDA said. A bale of cotton weighs 480 lbs (218 kg).

On the CBOT, wheat for delivery in May soared by 60 cents, the maximum allowed in a day, to $12.23 a bushel at mid-morning. Besides USDA's forecast of smaller U.S. supplies, Argentina limited its exports. May soybeans sold for $14.26 a bushel, up 19-1/2 cents, and May corn was up 10-3/4 cents, to $5.76-1/2 a bushel.
