Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
... or in a policy sense?

Establish market towns with local trial fields, regulated market, clinic, school and credit union, and then once the periodic subsidized grain dumping stops destroying local agrarian economies, they can be rebuilt.

Will it happen automatically? Eventually, but only with much more pain, as its harder to create than it is to thoughtlessly destroy as a side effect of income subsidies to rural areas of high income nations.

I've been accused of being a Marxist, yet while Harpo's my favourite, it's Groucho I'm always quoting. Odd, that.
