Interesting article. Thanks for sharing! 1st; is our end-state still the requirement to meet food/fuel/fiber for our population? 2nd; no mention at all of whether we are on track to meet the needs of the worlds growing population? No mention of population projections at all. 3rd; The agricultural history in this article is a bit fuzzy (to say the least). It isn't the first time farmers in this country has faced crises. In fact, in the 1890's subsidization was created to maintain local commodity prices above international market prices, set predominantly at the market price in Liverpool, England at that time (logistics gateway to the international market). Photo from the book 'Agricultural Economics', The Iowa State College (now Iowa State University) in 1955. Lastly, no mention of promoting home gardens (true food security). Much more can be said on this, but will leave it at this for now.

Here is the rest of the list (since I don't know how to post two photos - Ha!). #Food For Thought: Most of the items on the list have been enacted. Can we trust policy-makers who can't even identify what has been tried in the past (risk re-inventing the wheel)?
