Introductory Remarks by PT:
At first we actually didn’t want to post this particular Diary entry, because we felt it was too “off topic” (although we do of course occasionally discuss off topic issues), but upon further reflection it struck us that it is actually quite interesting when considered in a broader context.
[…] Bill Bonner gives us a brief anecdotal look at the farming business in France. What makes this so fascinating is that the EU (that alleged paragon of “free markets”) has some of the most statist agricultural policies in the world.
