$128 For a Bushel of Wheat

February 7, 2009

I heard this on Howard Stern.

Iraq sells us a barrel of oil for $128. We sell a bushel of wheat to Iraq for $7. Why doesn’t the US raise the price of a bushel of wheat to $128?

What? You can’t afford that much for a bushel of wheat? THEN DRINK YOUR OIL.

I bet a drop in the price of oil would soon follow.

Hey Yang, you think it’s time to talk to Mr. Obama?

    That would mean politicians have common sense. That’s unheard of!

    Right now the market price for a barrel of oil is about $40. So unless the Bushies were dumb enough to sign a long-term contract to buy Iraqi oil at $128, the exchange price favors the farmers.
