Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
There is also the question of the massive "super-rents" the likes of Cargill, Bunge, ADM, Monsanto are taking out between producer and consumer.

Aided and abetted by the US government of course: what's good for Cargill is good for the US!

I heard the other day that Cargill gets privileged access to US military/NSa etc satellite data so they can stay ahead of the game - and they are not even a "Public" corporation but the world's biggest private one.
