“We should go back to a policy of maximum agriculturalself-sufficiency,” Clinton said. While there would always be a globalmarket for crops like rice, wheat and corn, he added, “it is crazy forus to think we can develop a lot of these countries where I workwithout increasing their capacity to feed themselves and treating foodlike it was a color television set.”
Right on Bill. Oh and we need to sort out international trade in food. Should it be protected by tariff walls? That would have the advantage of keeping food local, but I don’t think that it would do much for price swings… what do you think? It would have the merit of showing how much of the local food crop could be used to produce fuel, I suppose.
