In Corrupt Global Food System, Farmland Is the New Gold


www.ipsnews.net

Famine-hollowed farmers watch trucks loaded with grain grown on their ancestral lands heading for the nearest port, destined to fill richer bellies in foreign lands...

...hungry people will do almost anything, even sell their own children, in order to eat. And with the global financial crisis, food and farmland became the "new gold" for some of the biggest investors, experts agree.

With wheat futures up 47 percent, U.S. corn up more than 50 percent, and soybeans up 34 percent, attention is turning balefully back to the dynamics of world hunger. Like the 2008 food shortages, those in 2011 are likely to be an inconvenience for those in the developed world, but a matter of life or death for millions in the poorer nations.

Investors have been gobbling up productive land in the third world, creating tension and social unrest. The article notes that there is enough food to feed everybody right now. The question is, will a relatively equitablew and stable global distribution system emerge?

Short answer? No. There is no such thing on the earth at this time. Agenda 21 is in full swing. TPTB plan to kill most of the people in the world and environmentalists are at the forefront of the population reduction movement. Right now, there are too many "useless eaters" in the world(their term, not mine), and they must cull the herd of non-producers first.

In this corrupt world, one mans loss is another mans gain.


Under the guise of investing in agriculture, huge amounts of money are being offered to debt-ridden countries in exchange for long-term leases to their foodlands. "Our research shows that the most fertile lands are being secured. There are huge issues around governance and corruption in this land grabbing," said Mittal.


There is enough food to go around, its just how it is handed out.

If we look deeper, we can find the IMF, and the World Bank involved.

Oh and lets not forget Monsanto, the bio tech evil of the world that is so engaged in selling GMO seeds.

Agents of the UN and globalism in support of agenda 21.
I agree that there is plenty of food and "overpopulation" is a myth. The entire population of the world could fit in Texas with living conditions roughly equal to that of New York City, or they could all live in Australia with 1/4 acre each and roughly 1/8th of the country left over.
Global "food shortage", "overpopulation" and "man caused "climate change" are all myths designed to scare us and allow TPTB to gain power.

Not unless every nation nullifies all their "Free Trade" agreements.

Which make such "equality" and "stability" illegal under international law.

Really. That's how it works now. Countries don't have Food Reserves any more - international law now mandates that the "market" (aka global corporations) should control supply and distribution.

I'm sorry I disagree with this part completely.

While it is true that the entire solar system is experiencing a warming, which may be caused by the sun or some other force that is affecting the sun, humans are responsible in part. There is no denying the damage we are doing to our planet. The mining for resources, drilling for oil, destruction of rainforests in order to create more farmland because the existing farmland is misused. How many habitats have humans destroyed in order to settle or grow crops? The ecosystem is a finely tuned, living thing, and by messing with it we create other problems further down the line.

Climate change / global warming is most definitely not a myth. There is so much evidence all around us, happening right now, if you have lived long enough - if you are on here then you will have - you will have noticed it yourself. When ice melts it cools the oceans down which is what has led to our winters getting harsher and colder each year. Eventually when the ice is done melting then the oceans, and the climate, will get warmer again.

These things are testable and observable by yourself. Dont use TPTB as a scapegoat, or a reason to exist in denial.
