Hopefully the tax collectors don't find it.
My question is why is the world bank making that statement and not Dept of Agriculture?
They know a food shortage is coming. Just bought a 20 lb bag of rice, bunch of pasta, flour bag, corn meal bag, beans, cans of evaporated milk, instant oats, bottle of vitamins. Stuff that lasts a long time. Doesn't take up too much room. I figure I have enough for about 6 months.
Last time I saw a tweet about this was a few months back. I already had my dry and canned supplies from the time I saw it before that. Be generally prepared and stop being terrified by people tweeting. If we go off tweets from a year ago then we should all be eating dirt by this point.
I'm out, last round I really only just bought a few extra cans. The Lord will provide.
Side note, what will the panic buy item be this time? People won't fall for toilet paper again (okay they probably will but it'll look suspicious. What other aisle is easy to clear out with large inexpensive items?
Ammo. Why do you think there's a gun scare every time a Democrat comes to office, it's damn good money. The past couple years have just been a feast for them.
EDIT: Also I know ammo isn't 'inexpensive' but compared to many commodities it's a high priority so expense is negotiable.
if the shit hits the fan (and i think it will), ammo will be worth more than gold
i don't have a time frame for you, but definitely in our lifetime
Same with unvaccinated semen. White gold!
Toilet Paper was never a 'panic buy'; real market forces caused it be sold out.
Before the lockdowns, about half of all TP usage was commercial TP (in those big rolls) and half was home. Once the lockdowns hit, that went to 90/10 or worse. This means commercial TP isn't getting used and home TP is getting used a lot more. If you just needed 'TP' you could always buy the big commercial rolls, but the residential rolls were what disappeared from store shelves.
TP is a low margin industry that's completely replaceable, which means any company in the space is working off of extremely tight margins made possible by very efficient manufacturing plants. This means they can't just ramp up production because trying to do so efficiently means more plants, which takes a long time (and would be unprofitable as soon as the the lockdowns stop).
This is why residential TP took so long to stabilize, and why we still see shortages and purchase limits.
He works for Big TP.
The toilet paper never really recovered fully, it's not fully restocked (there's still limites on amounts you can purchase at costco for instance) and prices have gone up and I hear repeated stories about a global paper shortage so I'd suggest you stock up on tp just in case, besides it's one thing that you will always use eventually and will never go bad. I have personally stocked my supplies of paper and shipping/packign supplies for my business as well as toilet paper very heavily to be on the safe side. Sooner or later i'll use it up and it's better to be on the safe side.
Yes, always do the opposite of what they tell you.
This is the sign to start hoarding fuel and food.
Putin suspended fertilizer exports from Russia due to the sanctions (13% of world's production is in Russia, of which I'm not sure how much they use).
Fits in well with the supply chain disruption theme of 2022.
The world bank can't be so stupid as to think that such a message would do anything other than backfire anyway. So I say it's a fake out, they WANT you to hoard food and fuel, probably to cause more food and fuel shortages, but since those shortages will likely come, then you should still do it, just make sure you do it FIRST before most others. ;-P
