The Unknown Future of Food Prices – Global Macro Update

Today I spoke with economist and agriculture expert Dan Basse of AgResource. The discussion was more than I expected—the US and the world are facing serious food security issues. Dan goes into great detail during our discussion on:

● What “peak farmland” is and why it will be the defining issue for US agriculture and food production…

● How China’s global wheat reserves could create supply shortfalls in the rest of the world…

● Why food prices globally and domestically will continue to remain “sticky” over the next 5 to 10 years…

● Why the ongoing Russia-Ukraine conflict will cause massive food shortages in the Middle East and Africa and how Latin America could make up the shortfall…

● How climate change is affecting global crop yields and why we’re just one adverse event away from a food crisis…
