However the reason I see it bumping and grinding for decades yet is because we still have the tendency to rescue starving humans. Althemore so if they are members of one of our biggest trading partners.
You think the USA is going to respond to little Jimi who wants milk on his cornies or to China or India starving to death? Remember both are nuclear powers before answering.
Quite right. That's why in my scenario it is not the Chinese or Indians that starve but the population of those African nations that are getting food aid now that will have it diverted to China or India. That population by the way is black, Muslim and has no oil. If you think that won't matter, talk to the people that spent time in the Super-Dome after Katrina.
