The UN is warning of wheat shortages, perhaps less than 10 weeks in world stockpiles. I'd venture that's calculated as an average across all countries. So, the US and Australia: probably fine. The rest of the world? Probably screwed. There have already been food riots in a few countries already. Will this lead to another "Arab spring?" Some countries have banned exports and returned to protectionist policies (India in particular is a big one). Plantings in the US currently lag, partly due to fertilizer and fuel prices costs being so high (and likely to increase).

 

So, do you have enough flour to make pizza and bread until fall of 2025? Well, do ya?
