This episode of W.I.T. from John has me thinking about the price of wheat as a result of the war on Ukraine.
The war on Ukraine has had a tremendous impact on wheat prices this year. That's what I'm thinking this week.
Three Things Worth Sharing

Researchers revive animal organs hours after ‘death’ - I’m not sure I can say much that adds to this direct quote from the beginning of this article from the international journal ‘Nature’:  

“Researchers have restored1 circulation and cellular activity in the vital organs of pigs, such as the heart and brain, one hour after the animals died. The research challenges the idea that cardiac death — which occurs when blood circulation and oxygenation stops — is irreversible, and raises ethical questions about the definition of death. The work follows 2019 experiments2 by the same scientists in which they revived the disembodied brains of pigs four hours after the animals died, calling into question the idea that brain death is final.” 

Raising a middle-class child will cost almost $300,000  - The USDA publishes regular reports about the cost of raising a child; a review of recent data includes the same thing I’ve been saying for years to clients who are worrying about the costs of college but have paid for daycare:  “…day care in many places across the country could be significantly more expensive than in-state public (college) tuition…”Shape

About the 'What I'm Thinking' Series
I do a lot of reading and thinking about personal finance so that our clients don’t have to and I periodically share my thoughts through this series of short recordings & emails - which I’ve creatively titled ‘What I’m Thinking’!
Over time there will be some topics that appeal to everyone, some that will be mildly interesting and some that only folks who are really into personal finance will find useful - which is just perfect.  Take whatever is useful to you from these and ignore the rest - in fact I give you permission to just hit the delete button if it sounds Iike more work than fun to listen!

Mark Twain once said ‘I was going to write you a short letter but I didn’t have time, so I’m writing you a long one.’  That concept really resonates with me, so I work really hard to keep these episodes short and digestible.  I hope you find them interesting - please share it with others that might enjoy it as well!
