Two Shortages That Threaten To Absolutely Eviscerate The Global Economy In 2022

• http://theeconomiccollapseblog.com by Michael Snyd

As we move forward into February and beyond, there are two key global shortages that we are going to want to keep a very close eye on.  One of them is the rapidly growing fertilizer shortage.  A few days ago, the Wall Street Journal ominously warned that "high fertilizer prices are weighing on farmers across the developing world"…

From South America's avocado, corn and coffee farms to Southeast Asia's plantations of coconuts and oil palms, high fertilizer prices are weighing on farmers across the developing world, making it much costlier to cultivate and forcing many to cut back on production.

That means grocery bills could go up even more in 2022, following a year in which global food prices rose to decade highs. An uptick would exacerbate hunger—already acute in some parts of the world because of pandemic-linked job losses—and thwart efforts by politicians and central bankers to subdue inflation.
