    Yeah, didn’t your mother tell you to clean your plate because Mao was starving all the Chinese kids?

    Amazing that Nicaragua imports food. Blows me away, cannot even grow own rice and beans.

    Recently China landed on the far side of the moon. First time for anyone.
    It carried "an onboard experiment to test how well plants — specifically potatoes and small flowering Arabidopsis plants — grow on the moon, ... It is the first mini-greenhouse to land on another world in the solar system." 190102 NYT Whaaaaaaaa? Only they think, "Food." Go figure.

    The special benefit of their feat, thanks to the shielding of the moon's mass to earth's e-noise, will be radio astronomy of deep space.

    Nonsense. The flooded rice fields from Sebaco to Leon and past Rivas are an impressive sight. Visit sometime.
    CIA factbook (2019): an ordered listing of major crops in Nicaragua: coffee, bananas, sugarcane, rice, corn, tobacco, cotton, sesame, soya, beans, beef, veal, pork, poultry, dairy products, shrimp, lobsters, peanuts
    "Nicaragua expects that about $2 million will be generated from the export of 40 thousand hundredweight of red beans to Mexico." July 2017 centralamericadata.com
    "The opening of three processing plants for beans, plantains, cassava and avocado, in León, Rivas and Nueva Guinea is expected for 2018, with an estimated investment of $8 million."

    Nic. makes food, they just get more $ for it from foreigners than from Nica buyers. Who wouldn’t sell to the highest bidder? Maybe they need export tarrifs.

    Dear Cookshoe - This is a common game capitalists play, dumping, to control market prices. It's especially easy in a small 'marketplace' like Nicaragua. One might consider 'em the USA's main export to the 3rd world: fat cats looking for easy 'profit', marks to sucker, rubes, as Will Rogers called 'em.

    What can we - of a totally different capitalist class - know? More - as the internet makes them naked. Meanwhile, we see 'people', Nicas here, and they're all right, IMO.

    (Apologies. Put FdC in my Sunday morning coffee, coming down, as it were.)

    Now we're getting to the nitty-gritty. Who are 'they'? Nicas? How likely? to ... get more than selling to their own people? The USA govmint subsidizes corporate farm production, maintaining artificially high prices. Not Nicaragua. Too dumb? Or is it that that sector is run by foreigners?

    I kinda keep up with Nica agro biz. Yes impressisive rice fields, much sent to States to process, as they cannot.

    Here is 1, Nica was 3rd top exporter or peanut oil in the World.

    Agro facts in Nica we can talk all day..

    I don’t have the answers. Uncle Sugar takes my money and gives it to farmers to keep them in business during droughts, leaving me to fend for myself when my work dries up, even though my profession is on the same level of Maslow’s heirarchy of needs as food is. But then so is prostitution, which isn’t subsidized either, as far as I know.

    If you’re a farmer in Nicaragua with a crop of coffee beans or tobacco, there’s international competition for your produce. Nica rice and beans are interchangeable with Honduran or Guatemalan or Salvadoran, so supply and demand are different. Nica beer isn’t special enough to compete with other beers (or just doesn’t have the right ad agency), but FDC is a world-class rum.

    Best export is surplus peeple. Send them to "work" abroad. the sucker states will give them food stamps and medical care and promise them a "path to citizenship". Meanwhile, they send all their surplus cash south so the family can produce more surplus people.

    Easier than producing things for the international markets.

    Do countries fail because of socialism or do failed countries choose socialism?

    But we have surplus people too. When the elite decide there is a surplus of humans they usually engineer a war to fix the problem.
