  • More understanding, less mystery: milkers get it

    When I asked an attorney about constitutional issues regarding the illegal status of raw milk in Iowa, he said that the statutory barriers are economic, so naturally I thought folks here might be interested in the story. On Thursday I sent out a news article announcing "Milkers Get It", a concept...

  • Mexico buys corn futures to ensure tortilla prices remain flat

    http://www.csmonitor.com/World/Americas/2010/1224/Mexico-buys-corn-futures-to-ensure-tortilla-prices-remain-flat Will this work? Perhaps I am mistaken, but I thought that such speculation could at best only temporarily influence prices... That such speculation generally worked to make prices more quickly...

  • Re: Food Inc. Documentry

    This movie looks like typical progressive propaganda. The problem with the food industry is government subsidies. The food itself is fine, organic is simply propaganda from expensive and unsustainable. This is a much better documentary: Bullshit! - Organic Foods (Video) (10min)

  • People Food?

    I was thinking about this case a while ago from Europe, where this man posted an ad looking for someone to eat. A few people answered but most backed out, and he respected their decisions. He even went to a movie and ate a pizza with one of the guys who backed out at the very last minute. Finally someone...

  • Re: foreigners hope to reap a bounty in Africa

  • foreigners hope to reap a bounty in Africa

    Check this article of the LA Times . They claim that Africa will be plundered by foreign investors who want to buy land, invest in irrigation and transfer technology. I consider at least risky, or even plain stupid, to invest in a country where exports can be blocked at anytime and the cries for nationalization...

  • The Bread Crisis in Cairo

    My apologies if this has been posted onsite elsewhere, I looked, and didn't see anything. I found this article to be very interesting. Bread riots? In a supposedly modern Arab country? Amazing. http://www.csmonitor.com/2008/0606/p04s05-wome.html Wow, and government interference hasn't solved...
