“India, the second-largest producer of wheat, has banned exports of the commodity, due to a risk to its food security.
A Friday notice in the government gazette signed by Santosh Kumar Sarangi, the Director General of Foreign Trade, said that a ‘sudden spike’ in the global prices of wheat was putting India, neighboring and other vulnerable countries at risk.”
Are we seeing a slow-moving collapse of the world’s food system?
Analysts say there’s no way around it: Food prices are going up.
Fortunately, there’s a way to lock in food at today’s prices – plus provide a safety net if things get worse.
And things could get worse. For the first time in a long time, nuclear war is a possibility. Then, there are the everyday things that can disrupt supply chains: Cyberattacks. Power grid failure. Calamitous weather.
It’s time to wonder:
Can we go a week without going to the grocery store?
What if it were a month?
Or 3 months? Or 6 months?
Looking at the crazy state of the world, you’ve probably put some money away (and hopefully, some gold and silver).
But have you put some long-lasting food away for when things get worse?
