'Poverty the Problem, Not Exports'


"[F]orcing farmers to supply the domestic market [for which some economic illiterates are calling] would be an act of economic sabotage.
    "That the poor can’t afford to buy the high nutrient foods we produce, isn’t because we export them, it’s because they’re poor.
    "Handicapping exports would not solve that and would make the whole country poorer in the process."

          ~ Ele Ludemann, from her post 'Poverty the Problem, Not Exports'
