CINOs: Capitalists In Name Only

Nicole Bell at Crooks & Liars has a short post up highlighting a broadcast tonight on NOW examining the disastorous global consequences of our farm subsidy policies, particularly with regard to the cotton industry.

We preach free market economies and then we crush Africa's cotton industry (& other agricultural industries) through massive subsidies to their American competitors.


  • This isn't news. The Bush folks are only for the free market when it benefits them--witness no bid contracts for wars and disasters, subsidies and tax breaks, etc.
