UPDATE: Reader Tom Grant notes that Spengler has been writing about this. “At this rate Egypt will be broke by September. . . . It will look like the Latin American banana republics, but without the bananas. That is not meant in jest: few people actually starved to death in the Latin inflations. Egypt, which imports half its wheat and a great deal of the rest of its food, will actually starve.”
