The laws of supply & demand Looks like someone has figured out that if you limit supply you can get a better price. Isn't it interesting that we do not live in the Soviet Union of the 1970's yet we have food rationing beginning in our backyards. What is next? Today they say there "are no plans to limit food purchases." ...yet. Wait until another industry (like milk or flour) sees what happened to the price of rice. Comments?
