Are We Heading into a Food Shortage? | Armstrong Economics

COMMENT: Mr. Armstrong, I find it really distasteful that you laid out events well in advance and then everyone copies you without ever giving you credit. There are articles now appearing about the coming food shortage. The degree of plagiarism is unbelievable. It must be dishearting.

In the USA, four states are well behind on the planting schedule – Illinois, Minnesota, Indiana, and South Dakota. These four states combined to produce nearly 40% of the corn in the U.S.
