Thread Name: BS: Global Rice Crisis
Subject: RE: BS: Global Rice Crisis
We talk about rice, but other grains are going up in value at alarming rates. Ethanol has driven up the cost of corn, and now wheat has spiked in price. This might be becasue people are substituting other things for rice.
At the risk of sounding like a broken record, has anyone in a position of authority mentioned growing world populations as part of the problem?
