    by the MSM...a country is facing the loss of 40 some percent of it's food supply, and they choose to concentrate on what that might do to their economy...have we all gotten so stupid?

    of shoes and ships and sealing wax, of cabbages and kings.

      is how so many simply think that, at the end of the day, it is all determined by some $ amount.  That "peak oil" is solved simply because higher prices will drive more production. Same with agricultural / such challenges.

      I am a believer in the power of the marketplace ... just not wearing blinders in that belief ... "well-regulated marketplace" and there are things that are not 'solved by' or 'for' the marketplace to determine.
