The West died at a very bad time.
The rise of the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) and the rise of Russia’s annexation of Crimea were catalysts for this.
It is a fact that many westerners are still suffering from the economic crisis that began a few years ago.
In 2016, global inflation reached 4.6%, the highest rate since 2008.
The unemployment rate was 8.6%.
Even as the global financial crisis intensified, the West’s prosperity was not sustained.
Its economy contracted by $1.4 trillion between the end of 2015 and the end in February.
This was the largest single contraction since the Great Depression of the 1930s.
Westerners are also now living through a post-crisis economic depression that is threatening their health and livelihoods.
The number of people in the United States, the United Kingdom, France and Germany in serious poverty has more than doubled in the last decade, according to the World Bank.
These figures are alarming because it is believed that more than one-third of the world’s population will be living in extreme poverty by 2030.
The global economic crisis has had a significant impact on global food production.
The West has long been the main producer of grains and oil, but its role has dramatically declined in recent years.
As a result, the global food price index for grain fell from 1,096 to 1,009 per cent in the same period.
In the United Nations food budget projections for 2030, wheat is projected to fall by more than 90 per cent, from $14.2 trillion to $10.4 billion.
This is the worst year in the past four decades for global grain production.
There is no doubt that the United Nation’s Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) has forecast a sharp rise in wheat prices over the next decade.
But it is still unclear why.
Some researchers believe that the world is not yet ready to handle a rapid increase in the world supply of wheat.
Wheat production has fallen from nearly 9.7 million tonnes in 2015 to 8.3 million tonnes this year, according the FAO.
The main reason is the increasing demand from China, which imports more than half of the wheat grown worldwide.
As prices rise, farmers in China will be forced to produce more wheat, which will cause prices to drop further.
Other countries have seen an increase in demand, but farmers have not been able to handle it.
The FAO expects wheat production to fall to 1.4 million tonnes by 2030 from 1.3 in the year before.
The United States is already producing more than 5 million tonnes of wheat, but it will fall further due to a fall in demand from Russia and other parts of Asia.
As wheat prices increase, so will the cost of producing it, and the number of farmers who will be able to afford to pay farmers is likely to increase.
The growing food crisis will also impact the livelihoods of many countries.
Farmers in the U.S. are already facing the challenge of not being able to pay for their food when it is not sold.
As the number and quality of products has declined, many farmers are finding it difficult to produce enough to feed their families.
They will need to buy more wheat to survive.
Meanwhile, food banks across the world are already overwhelmed.
As they have no way of finding the cash to pay their bills, many are turning to other methods of providing for their families such as selling food or selling it for cash.
In some countries, the food banks are struggling to find enough cash to cover the cost for the next month’s deliveries.
As many as 5.6 million people in Europe rely on food banks, according a report by the European Union.
And in the Philippines, more than 11 million people depend on food bank services in 2017.
In Australia, there are already about 30,000 people on the waiting list for a food bank.
And there is no sign that this is going to improve any time soon.
As global food prices continue to rise, more and more countries will have to look for other solutions to meet the growing demand for food.
It would be a shame if this crisis was to spread to other parts or regions of the globe.
