Protectionism, national reserves should allow to protect the actual populations of such prices increases, as in electricity. The price of a baguette was regulated until 20 years ago, in France...

But corrupt, indebted, "reformed" governments have been unable to undertake such preventative measures and are now fighting for the last grain of rice available...
