just 1/2 hour ago (6 AM eastern) there was the above news item on the radio.
It turns out that one unexpected consequence of flex-fuel supply=>
is that the lots of the sugarcane crops are being diverted for producing
ethanol/alcohol(for the vehicles)
sugar (for the humans)......
in the short term, the price of sugar has risen,
and that reverberates throughout the economy in Brazil ...
The poor & the laboring population need affordable & addictive, edible products, so they may continue producing services & being pawns of industry.
Those better off, desire affordable fuel to power their mobile bio-spheres
with appointments like GPS, Wi-Fi connectivity, AC, ergonomic consoles,
Dolby sound DVD screens to each passenger...all the bells-&-whistles.
----------so, at this present time, there is a dis-equilibrium
pitting ones 'needs' against anothers 'wants' within a social order.
and it goes downhill, from this point onward
