“The Say's law of markets is an economic rule that says that production is the source of demand” - had to look it up

does this mean that Indians are eating more wheat per capita nowadays, having changed their traditional diet?

Wheat is the traditional cereal in India especially in the Northern part and now consumed more in South too. Not much data is available on per capita consumption

I think Borlaug would have been extremely concerned about rising population. His prescient words in 1970: "The frightening power of human reproduction must also be curbed; otherwise the success of the Green Revolution will be ephemeral only."

Unfortunately, Borlaug saw population growth among the rural poor as the problem, not inequality and injustice--and the grossly disproportionate (and growing) consumption of the wealthy.
