Hope You Noticed

Mexico has cancelled sugar-export permits to the United States:
The cancellations are the latest dispute of a years-long trade row between Mexico - the United States' top foreign supplier of sugar - and its neighbor at a time when cane refiners are struggling with prices and tight supplies, U.S. industry sources said.
When suppliers of a commodity reduce shipments to demonstrate how much the commodity will be missed, they had better be sure that the customers will be inconvenienced greatly, else its importance may be re-assessed.

Sugar, having been declared the new tobacco, is in a precarious position, and the Mexican government and sugar exporters are engaging in a risky maneuver.

In other news, thousands (millions?) of women skipped work to demonstrate their value to the economy in a Day Without Women.
