    1. This combined with El Nino should (one hopes) lead to a recovery in soft commodity prices, inflation, upcountry spending, growth…but in the meantime maybe someone like JMT being able to buy bad loans at low prices.

            The other side of low-lying fruit in inefficient markets: no play here…but also no hedge, incredible. Try Chicago, it’s a toddlin town.
