137. You mean like banning Ag Exports because your citizens are Starving?
Like India did in 2008 because they couldn't get enough Lentils?

Or maybe restriction of the diversion of edible oils to the Biofuel industry because the one staple food item in asia skyrockets 300%?

Just wait until you get a load of the current razor thin margin on Corn stocks, and how it will affect the Feed industry for Livestock.

I think you will change your tune very quickly when you start walking around with an emptier stomach.
