The emperor’s new grain marketing clothes have now been exposed for the hot air they were “woven” from.
Farmer opportunity to contract or deliver wheat is unequal or non-existent, and wheat prices have fallen by 50 per cent, putting them well under both U.S. and world prices.
Don’t let the emperor and his courtiers tell you the answer is to give more money to the railways. The railways are already overpaid at least $175 million by farmers every year. Giving them more money is simply spinning more invisible clothes.
