Will trade rice for oil
With the increase of the price of rice of late there are actually only three countries that are in trouble in terms of rice production and consumption. They are Bangladesh, Indonesia and the Phillipines. In all other major producing countries production surpasses consumption. So that presents the obvious observation that the rise in prices are due to the increase in oil and the speculators that have been driving up the cost on commodities for the last few months.
If we could just get these greedy bastards out of the equation then I'm sure there would be more peace in the world.
