Countries Are Starting to Hoard Food, Threatening Global Trade

Countries Are Starting to Hoard Food, Threatening Global Trade thumbnail

It’s not just grocery shoppers who are hoarding pantry staples. Some governments are moving to secure domestic food supplies during the conoravirus pandemic.

Kazakhstan, one of the world’s biggest shippers of wheat flour, banned exports of that product along with others, including carrots, sugar and potatoes. Serbia has stopped the flow of its sunflower oil and other goods. Russia is leaving the door open to shipment bans and said it’s assessing the situation weekly.

To be perfectly clear, there have been just a handful of moves and no sure signs that much more is on the horizon. Still, what’s been happening has raised a question: Is this the start of a wave of food nationalism that will further disrupt supply chains and trade flows?

U.K. Grocers Ration Buying and Bulk Up Online to Deal With Virus

“We’re starting to see this happening already — and all we can see is that the lockdown is going to get worse,” said Tim Benton, research director in emerging risks at think tank Chatham House in London.

Though food supplies are ample, logistical hurdles are making it harder to get products where they need to be as the coronavirus unleashes unprecedented measures, panic buying and the threat of labor crunches.

Consumers across the globe are still loading their pantries — and the economic fallout from the virus is just starting. The specter of more trade restrictions is stirring memories of how protectionism can often end up causing more harm than good. That adage rings especially true now as the moves would be driven by anxiety and not made in response to crop failures or other supply problems.

As it is, many governments have employed extreme measures, setting curfews and limits on crowds or even on people venturing out for anything but to acquire essentials. That could spill over to food policy, said Ann Berg, an independent consultant and veteran agricultural trader who started her career at Louis Dreyfus Co. in 1974.

“You could see wartime rationing, price controls and domestic stockpiling,” she said.

Some nations are adding to their strategic reserves. China, the biggest rice grower and consumer, pledged to buy more than ever before from its domestic harvest, even though the government already holds massive stockpiles of rice and wheat, enough for one year of consumption.

Key wheat importers including Algeria and Turkey have also issued new tenders, and Morocco said a suspension on wheat-import duties would last through mid-June.

As governments take nationalistic approaches, they risk disrupting an international system that has become increasingly interconnected in recent decades.

Kazakhstan had already stopped exports of other food staples, like buckwheat and onions, before the move this week to cut off wheat-flour shipments. That latest action was a much bigger step, with the potential to affect companies around the world that rely on the supplies to make bread.

For some commodities, a handful of countries, or even fewer, make up the bulk of exportable supplies. Disruptions to those shipments would have major global ramifications. Take, for example, Russia, which has emerged as the world’s top wheat exporter and a key supplier to North Africa.

“If governments are not working collectively and cooperatively to ensure there is a global supply, if they’re just putting their nations first, you can end up in a situation where things get worse,” said Benton of Chatham House.

He warned that frenzied shopping coupled with protectionist policies could eventually lead to higher food prices — a cycle that could end up perpetuating itself.

“If you’re panic buying on the market for next year’s harvest, then prices will go up, and as prices go up, policy makers will panic more,” he said.

And higher grocery bills can have major ramifications. Bread costs have a long history of kick-starting unrest and political instability. During the food price spikes of 2011 and 2008, there were food riots in more than 30 nations across Africa, Asia and the Middle East.

“Without the food supply, societies just totally break,” Benton said.

Ample supplies have kept prices relatively low since the 2011 spike

Unlike previous periods of rampant food inflation, global inventories of staple crops like corn, wheat, soybeans and rice are plentiful, said Dan Kowalski, vice president of research at CoBank, a $145 billion lender to the agriculture industry, adding he doesn’t expect “dramatic” gains for prices now.

While the spikes of the last decade were initially caused by climate problems for crops, policies exacerbated the consequences. In 2010, Russia experienced a record heat wave that damaged the wheat crop. The government responded by banning exports to make sure domestic consumers had enough.

The United Nations’ measure of global food prices reached a record high by February 2011.

“Given the problem that we are facing now, it’s not the moment to put these types of policies into place,” said Maximo Torero, chief economist at the UN’s Food and Agriculture Organization. “On the contrary, it’s the moment to cooperate and coordinate.”

 

Of course, the few bans in place may not last, and signs of a return to normal could prevent countries from taking drastic measures. Once consumers start to see more products on shelves, they may stop hoarding, in turn allowing governments to back off. X5 Retail, Russia’s biggest grocer, said demand for staple foods is starting to stabilize. In the U.S., major stores like Walmart Inc. have cut store hours to allow workers to restock.

In the meantime, some food prices have already started going up because of the spike in buying.

Wheat futures in Chicago, the global benchmark, have climbed more than 6% in March as consumers buy up flour. U.S. wholesale beef has shot up to the highest since 2015, and egg prices are higher.

At the same time, the U.S. dollar is surging against a host of emerging-market currencies. That reduces purchasing power for countries that ship in commodities, which are usually priced in greenbacks.

In the end, whenever there’s a disruption for whatever reason, Berg said, “it’s the least-developed countries with weak currencies that get hurt the most.”

    DavyScum-

    The poster who contaminates this site by his 24/7 appearance via numerous socks and ID thefts known as The DavyScum ranks as the most bitter and hateful human being ever encountered. Just imagine for a moment the corrupted DNA and sick environmental conditioning required to produce such a thoroughly revolting human-parasite organism equal to The Flood in Halo science fiction. No wonder The Scum-Parasite was exiled to the deplorable capital, Ozarks, where the heat and humidity and parasites create an unbearable environment that is only bearable thanks to fossil fuels. Agriculture is non-existent due to the poor and rock filled soil conditions. No wonder the Scum-parasite claims to have some goats. But no worries for the REAL Green Scum hypocrite operates large central air conditioning units.

    Oh, did I mention the filthy lies and hypocrisy on a par with the Scum’s Dear Leader Fat Orange. Is it any wonder why a Scum is attracted to a pathologically lying narcissist- yep, you guessed it, two peas of the same pod.

    Filthy and disgusting. A parasite in human form that takes and gives nothing back. The sooner the Scum parasite is removed from the host the better for all.

    My country, Uruguay, produces and exports SEVERAL TIMES more food than it consumes. That is one of the reasons I chose to build my bug out farm down there, in spite of the fact that I don’t like its people. But, hell, I just don’t like 99% of humans, it’s not that Uruguayans are particularly bad or anything. Objectively speaking, they are better than average. I am not a typical Uruguayan, though, I am a mean son of a bitch and proud of it.

    Could the Netherlands be food-self-sufficient? Yes.

    Are the Netherlands food-self-sufficient? No.

    Dutch food experts from Wageningen agricultural university:

    https://www.nporadio1.nl/wetenschap-techniek/15691-kan-nederland-leven-van-zijn-eigen-landbouw-en-voedsel

    The Netherlands are a large food producer, yet they buy a lot from abroad: corn, coffee, bananas and other exotic fruits, sugar, olives, French wine, etc., etc. The Dutch love exotic food too much. If they would only eat their own apples, meat, cheese, milk, vegetables, potatoes, they would easily survive, but with a very different diet, a much healthier diet btw. Very little bread and pasta (no soil for corn), no coffee, tea, chocolate, wine, no exotic fruit.

    “A Greater Depression?”
    https://tinyurl.com/uwbdkkx project syndicate

    “Not even during the Great Depression and World War II did the bulk of economic activity literally shut down, as it has in China, the United States, and Europe today. The best-case scenario would be a downturn that is more severe than the GFC (in terms of reduced cumulative global output) but shorter-lived, allowing for a return to positive growth by the fourth quarter of this year. In that case, markets would start to recover when the light at the end of the tunnel appears…Second, monetary policymakers – who have already done in less than a month what took them three years to do after the GFC – must continue to throw the kitchen sink of unconventional measures at the crisis. That means zero or negative interest rates; enhanced forward guidance; quantitative easing; and credit easing (the purchase of private assets) to backstop banks, non-banks, money market funds, and even large corporations (commercial paper and corporate bond facilities). The US Federal Reserve has expanded its cross-border swap lines to address the massive dollar liquidity shortage in global markets, but we now need more facilities to encourage banks to lend to illiquid but still-solvent small and medium-size enterprises. Third, governments need to deploy massive fiscal stimulus, including through “helicopter drops” of direct cash disbursements to households. Given the size of the economic shock, fiscal deficits in advanced economies will need to increase from 2-3% of GDP to around 10% or more. Only central governments have balance sheets large and strong enough to prevent the private sector’s collapse…But these deficit-financed interventions must be fully monetized. If they are financed through standard government debt, interest rates would rise sharply, and the recovery would be smothered in its cradle. Given the circumstances, interventions long proposed by leftists of the Modern Monetary Theory school, including helicopter drops, have become mainstream…Unless the pandemic is stopped, economies and markets around the world will continue their free fall. But even if the pandemic is more or less contained, overall growth still might not return by the end of 2020. After all, by then, another virus season is very likely to start with new mutations; therapeutic interventions that many are counting on may turn out to be less effective than hoped. So, economies will contract again and markets will crash again. Moreover, the fiscal response could hit a wall if the monetization of massive deficits starts to produce high inflation, especially if a series of virus-related negative supply shocks reduces potential growth. And many countries simply cannot undertake such borrowing in their own currency. Who will bail out governments, corporations, banks, and households in emerging markets?”

    How much (fertile) land do you need to feed a single person?

    The Belgian government works with a standard of 50 m2.

    Here a source that claims that 35-40 m2 is enough:

    https://www.hetkanwel.nl/2014/09/22/zo-veel-land-kost-het-om-zelfvoorzienend-te-leven/

    I have 100 m2 + green house + 30 m3 terrace, a terrace I could use to place garbage-bin bags with stacked potatoes, like this:

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gm4QcPQV0Xs

    There is nothing easier to grow than potatoes. Just put a small potato in the ground and dig 1 kg up a few months later. Don’t forget to earth up in between to max. yield.

    Where to get the compost from? From the streets. In late October, late at night.lol, I take a big bag of 1 m3, on a wheelbarrow and a broom and collect the endless amounts of leaves fallen from the trees in the middle of the city and cart them to my back-yard. 5 bags suffice, a 1-2 hour job.

    “Food rationing must be introduced immediately to prevent the UK running short of fresh fruit and vegetables, three experts have warned Boris Johnson. The professors say supplies come predominantly from Spain and Italy, the two European countries hit hardest by the coronavirus pandemic. Furthermore, the switch by supermarkets to “just-in-time” supply chains has increased the risk of severe shortages in the weeks and months to come. “Thirty years ago, the UK’s food retailers carried 10-12 days of stock – now they have just 24-36 hours of stock,” Professor Erik Millstone, of the University of Sussex, told The Independent. “We’ve got to do demand management, not just blame people when they start getting three days or a week’s food supply,” he said.”

Experts had expressed concern that Russia’s testing program may have been too narrow, focused only on those returning from outbreak centers abroad. The Russian test itself also appears to be significantly less sensitive than those used elsewhere — according to the president of the American Association for Clinical Chemistry, perhaps as much as 10-16 times less. Some critics had accused the government of deliberately concealing the real numbers. Those concerns have been fuelled by figures from Russia’s state statistics agency showing Moscow has experienced a 37% jump in pneumonia cases this January compared to last year. Anastasia Vasilyeva, who leads Alliance of Doctors, a group that campaigns on healthcare issues, and an ally of the opposition leader Alexey Navalny, has accused authorities of failing to provide medical staff with sufficient protective gear and hiding COVID-19 cases as pneumonia. Last week, she posted an audio recording she said was from a doctor at a Moscow hospital complaining 240 beds had already been set aside for patients with severe “pneumonia.”

    “Chinese realty tycoon Ren Zhiqiang is known in the Chinese Communist Party for being an outspoken maverick. Ren, former chief of Beijing Huayuan Group, a state-owned developer, again managed to stoke fresh opposition to Chinese President Xi Jinping earlier this month with an opinion piece that went viral. In his tirade crucifying the top leader, Ren called Xi a “clown” and likened him to the emperor in the famous story by Danish writer Hans Christian Andersen…He said it was “a whistle in the wind” for Xi and his underlings to muzzle people’s simmering anger amid the rampant cover-ups and underreporting following the viral outbreak in Wuhan that began at the end of 2019, and that Xi himself deserved a fair share of the blame due to his inaction and measures implemented too late…There has also been another open letter circulating online since last week suggesting convening an extraordinary plenum of the Politburo to reflect on “Xi’s wrongs” since taking office and decide if he should step down as president, party chief and commander of the military. The appeal, issued in the wake of the health crisis in China, to take stock of Xi’s performance not only focuses on his role in China’s war on the virus but also on his major policy blunders since 2012, from a trade and economy falling-out with the US to the failure to enhance national recognition among Hongkongers and Taiwanese to foster reunification.”

    “LMFAO, you have no clue what it takes. A little fucking garden ain’t shit.”

    I was talking about the low status of small farming throughout history, not the mega-corporations of today. Farming traditionally was the bottom of society. Above came craftsmen, then military, then clergy, then aristocracy and finally the king.

    “BTW, what happens when your little garden doesn’t grow as happens all the time??”

    I have my freezer with 100 meals. But in the end of the day I gladly rely most of all on the professional food production capacity of my nation. In a densely-populated country like the Netherlands, American-style prepping doesn’t make much sense.

    Besides, an hour worked in the garden is an hour saved in the gym or jogging in the forest and reduce repetitiveness in all things exercise.

    I strictly adhere to the recommendation of the American Heart Association, namely to walk 10,000 steps a day (90 minutes). 3000 kcal burned in the garden is fine as well.

    “Fearing the potential breakdown of law and order as a result of the coronavirus, Hungarians are panic buying guns, with one store reporting a five fold increase in sales. “We are selling five times as much as in a normal March,” Gabor Vass, a gun store owner in Budapest, told Al Jazeera. “We could sell 15 times more if we had any more rubber bullet weapons, but we ran out,” he added. The store suddenly faced a rush of buyers last week despite the fact that Hungary has largely escaped the fate of other European countries, recording 167 coronavirus cases and 7 deaths. Vass said the firearm purchases were being driven by fears of civil unrest if supplies of essential products run out. “If people brawl over toilet paper now, what will they do later? Once shops run out of stock, people will take what they need. Police can hardly deal with every petty theft,” he said. 300,000 of Hungary’s 10 million population hold gun licenses, but licenses aren’t necessary for some light arms. “People have gone nuts,” said Vass. “They gobble up anything they don’t need a licence for. Gas pistols, rubber bullet guns, and even things like crossbows, which can harm you seriously.” According to the the Czech arms manufacturers association, there has also been a “double-digit rise in sales” of guns in Hungary’s neighboring country.”

    “Officials in the Czech Republic say that the country may need to keep its borders closed for 2 years in order to fight a potential second wave of coronavirus. Czech Crisis Staff head Roman Prymula told Czech Television that border controls may have to be kept in place for an extended period in order to restrict the entry of people from other European countries that have been harder hit by coronavirus. “The situation in other European countries will not be good, there it will take months and long months,” said Prymula. Czech Minister of Health Adam Vojtech amplified Prymula’s suggestion. “The point is to avoid having a second or third wave of the epidemic, so that people from other countries such as Italy, France, Spain, Germany, do not begin to flow [into the Czech Republic],” he told Czech Television. Quarantine measures that restrict the movement of people and have mandated the closure of restaurants and other businesses, as well as the wearing of face coverings in public, will be extended in the Czech. Republic until at least April 1st. The measures have been successful, with Prymula highlighting how authorities were able to “flatten the curve” of infections and keep the rate under control. The country has largely escaped the impact of coronavirus in comparison to other European countries, recording 1,236 cases but just a single death. Vit Rakusan, leader of the opposition STAN party, said the idea of closing the border for 2 years was draconian. “I understand and support the ban on traveling during current culmination of the epidemic. But scaring people with two years, this must not be a decision of an epidemiologist, however prominent,” he asserted.”

    The system is being rigged now against globalization. Let’s not forget that reset implies that the old structures are torn down. What exactly are they? Its gonna be very hard in the future to convince people that flying is safe as they did after 9-11. One thing is clear that the bailouts are not simply tools to continue the old system. Instead they will be used to equip planes as drones to automate global trade and rid us of the blighted tourist (aka services) sector. The inevitable vaccine will no doubt restore confidence enough for us to return to crowded class rooms but no longer will we those pointless social studies courses that grew snowflake liberals like nobodies business. The world will speed up economically but slow down physically.
    Unlimited FED purchases literally means that the FED is buying up America and much of the world. The FED is the most powerful and influential entity that ever existed. Including the Vatican, the Roman empire, and Islam. I hope the FED realises that buying up a market to the tune of a 1000 points merely means that people are getting out while it can, and as the only game in town that FED will simply inflate away any of it’s own liabilities. If the FED fails then there wont be any gold standard or crypto currency which can exist without some kind of jump start for regular ‘consumers’. At least a few years of universal basic income with the incentive to save will begin the future system. Between now and then who can really say who or how many will die. The greatest gen died out 10 years ago, now the boomers are staring into the abyss of debt the created in the form of a virus propagated by a globalised system they built, as they cower from is bony death grip being left to die, alone in old folks homes regardless of whether or not they stood on the left or right , will they, in their delerium realise that by selling out gen x, millennials and the young to interest payments for their collateralized debt orgy to billions of cheaper wages from Asia and eastern europe that this system is choking them to death in gratitude.

    The Federal Reserve, which is for 0% federal, but for 100% private jews, is the greatest scam in world history, after the holohoax, 9/11 and JFK=Oswald-did-it tale.

    People like joe esquire and empire dave are on their knees for their kosher owners, represented on this site by the mobster and will justify any lie, any atrocity, any regime change in order to get the total world under control for their Zionist masters. joe esquire and empire dave represent that demographic that mobster’s tribe intends to phase out from history. joe esquire and empire dave will remain on their knees regardless. To rise up they would need spine, an organ they lack.

    We in continental Europe should not be too concerned about their demographic demise. Either in 2020 or in 2024, the demographic balance in the US will be tilted against them. Bye-bye Anglos. Third world countries don’t have any geopolitical cloud. They have rap artists.

    Unfortunately for mobster and his two minnows empire dave and joe esquire, two Anglo centuries are about to come to a screeching halt. There is no way they can keep their grip onto Eurasia. China is about to replace Anglosphere as the new global hegemon (a hegemon that can and should be balanced by PBM plus some majority white North-American balkanized territories).

    Absurd requirement. They know they will need their equipment in two weeks time. Everybody has a responsibility to their own citizens first. The EU has (not yet) a shared healthcare system. The Germans DID fly in French patients btw.

    “Your so called vision is a joke. Italy wont forget this. Just cause italy has a communist government right now doesnt mean it will always be so.”

    joe and his “communists” everywhere. The Italians have a weak state, so much for being communist. There is only one country with deficits as far as the eye can see and that is Britain. Italy is doing fine, will lose a couple of tens of thousands of 80-year old, just like everybody else.

    And now off to fields joe, to bring in the harvest, as you have no longer poor Eastern Europeans to do it for you. And after all, isn’t cherry-picking a favorite English past-time?

    No country is more suitable to practice your military against than Turkey. These brave Greeks are making a good start:

    https://www.geenstijl.nl/5152593/griekse-f16-s-doen-low-pass-langs-turkse-grens/#comments

    The Greeks are responding with their F16’s, to similar intimidation attempts by the Turks, our so-called NATO-ally (our real future ally Russia is meanwhile pounding Turkish holdouts in Syria, go for it Vlad, hit ’em hard!).

    Together we can reconquer the northern part of Constantinople and create a natural boundary of defense between Europe and Asia, the Bosporus. These libtards from northern Constantinople would love to be part of the EU anyway.

    #NATOBrainDead

    Time to say to the Greeks that thanks to their courageous behavior a part of their debt is “on the house”.

    “Despite QEternity & “Record” Bailout-Bill, The US Dollar Shortage Is Intensifying…”
    https://tinyurl.com/weuyw2f zero hedge

    “The answer, as Daniel Lacalle details below, lies in the rising global dollar shortage, and should be a lesson for monetary alchemists around the world. The $2 trillion stimulus package agreed by Congress is around 10% of GDP and, if we include the Fed borrowing facilities for working capital, it means $6 trillion in liquidity for consumers and firms over the next nine months… If we take the US dollar reserves of the most indebted countries and deduct the outstanding liabilities with the estimated foreign exchange revenues in this crisis … The global dollar shortage may rise from 13 trillions of dollars in March 2020 to $ 20 trillion in December … And that is if we do not estimate a lasting global recession. China maintains $3 trillion of reserves and is one of the best-prepared countries, but still, those total reserves cover around 60% of existing commitments. If export revenues collapse, dollar scarcity increases. In 2019, Chinese issuers increased their dollar-denominated debt by $ 200 billion as exports slowed. Gold reserves are not enough. If we look at the main economies’ gold reserves, they account for less than 2% of money supply. Russia has the largest gold reserves vs money supply. China’s gold reserves: 0.007% of its money supply (M2), Russia’s gold reserves: c9% of its money supply. As such, there is no “gold-backed” currency in the world, and the best protected -in gold- the Ruble, suffers the same volatility in commodity slump and recession times as others due to the same issue of US dollar scarcity, although not even close to the volatility of those LatAm countries that face both falling US dollar reserves and a collapse in demand from their own citizens of their domestic currency (as Argentina)..”

    “How COVID-19 May Move Markets From Here”
    https://tinyurl.com/th4xpul real investment advice
    https://tinyurl.com/qqbwtu4 graph

    “As the pandemic drives markets to the 2018 lows, certain relationships in trends between the markets and the COVID-19 virus are evident. As social distancing increases, markets continue to fall. So, by looking at the expected breakout levels of the virus, we can assess possible market reactions. The chart below shows the inverse correlation between the expected peaks of the virus and potential lows in the markets…Epidemiologists currently forecast the COVID -19 pandemic will unfold in two waves, with the current breakout and remission during the summer followed by a possible second breakout in the fall and winter of this year. Researchers think the closest analog to the COVID -19 pandemic is the Spanish Flu in 1918, which came roaring back the following winter resulting in a second wave of even greater infections and death…Consumers who are already financially stretched are being furloughed or laid off, which will trigger loan defaults. Finally, corporations are now at the highest level of debt since 2008 and are experiencing a steep decline in sales, causing a cash squeeze leading to layoffs. The most important consideration is that the virus is exposing the heavy reliance on debt on major institutions and consumers in our economic system…The slide into a recession is evident in announced layoffs by significant corporations. Marriott and other hotels have announced thousands of layoffs. Other hospitality industry companies will follow. Harley-Davidson, GM, Ford, Fiat Chrysler, Nissan, and Tesla have all suspended manufacturing for several weeks in the U.S. Thousands of workers are on furlough until manufacturing resumes. There is a growing risk consumer demand may not return to pre coronavirus levels forcing permanent layoffs. While manufacturing is 30% of GDP, services contribute 70% of GDP. Many services can be offered online or via web conferencing. The present social distancing experiment will provide significant insights into how well the economy can perform when many knowledge workers are working from home. If working from home is successful, we expect to see more companies permanently move employees to their homes to reduce office space and cut expenses. This has grave implications for the commercial real estate industry and investors of those properties. The diverse U.S. economy is likely to recover quicker than the world economy. However, an earnings recovery may stall due to the fact most S&P 100 companies derive 55% of their sales from overseas and 60% of their profits from international markets. Looking at a possible second virus wave in the fall, it is likely that economic damage will grow worse due to increasing unemployment, declining corporate spending, falling consumer spending, and a resumption of social distancing.”

The FED has continued to support and bailout the financial asset owning class—and it will continue to have to in order to buy us time. Privatizing gains and socializing (onto the general populace and unto other species) the losses has been the ‘American way of life’ for decades, and this model has been on turbo-charge since 2008.”
