Ukraine sends Scotland an early Christmas present

My mate George Green who farms in sunny Scotland sent me this.

“I've been reading your blog on how markets work and have to agree. I feel I should send your (Ukrainian) government a bunch of flowers; your yields are down and they've kept your prices down so our average yields (winter barley all cut about 9t/ha) are being met with high prices, whoopieeeee! Maybe a box of chocolates?”

A case of single malt might be more appropriate perhaps from the Isle of Illegal Embargo, it’s just off the west coast I believe.
