Another factor is that there’s no equivalent in food production of corporations like Saudi Aramco, the National Iranian Oil Company, or Petróleos de Venezuela - big state-owned companies that manage production. The President and Congress don’t have any direct control over wheat growth or its sale.
Sounds like a ripoff to me. The last time the island was sold the entire thing went for a mere $24! 100 euros/ha is way too high.
How about just removing the US Navy from the shipping lanes? Let the Saudi’s and Venezuelans protect their own dam oil. Shit, we can give Kuwait back to the Iraqui’s while we are at it.
It’s their fucking oil. If you don’t want to pay for it, get your own or come up with some other energy source. You sound like a smack monkey blaming his dealer for his problems.
Oooh oooh oooh, evil OPEC, not giving us their oil for a price WE want to pay. It’s our lifeblood! Well, suck it up, buttercup. Nobody owes you cheap oil.
