The new age of grains

How the haves will feed the have nots in the global world.....

Can we sue China for it's impact on the rice futures losses and that "spill over" effect on the other grains......... But then again will the Nigerians and who knows how many others, just sue the US if the plastic was made from corn???

 

Welcome to the new global marketplace! 

 

The expensive US producers might be worth the additional price compared to what the international corporate foundation donors will give us, and we are .....bent on finding out..

Re: The new age of grains

The thing i thought was important about this story is what CBT gave up when it went degital global to capture bigger commissions...

There just is not an FDA or SEC comparable in world trade to grant some "dependability" to the product on a global basis.  And there a lot more absence of integrity in the world as in the US.

Re: Back to the future???

Ray did you see the article this week about the US Gov. withholding unpaid student loan funds from social security?

 

I wonder if the Kansas Board of Rengents will accept this big pile of two year old wheat,  I'm sure a little of it came from KU endowment land?

Re: Back to the future???

I don't see the point of your observation about KU endowment lands.  It seems a long way to stretch for a conspiracy theory.

Re: Back to the future???

It is the closest I can come to how close an american university wants to get to a commodity for tuition trade.....considering.... KU competes in grain production without the burdon on taxation on its profits and won't offer anything to the child of its farm renter.................  Probably is not going to consider giving a break to any students by taking grain over cash.  .........

 

 

I don't understand what you mean by a "conspiracy theory",  sometimes it seems like the thing to say for lack of anything else.  Do you think it is a good idea or not?
