Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Money doesn’t grow on trees and trees don’t grow on money
The Contrary Farmer - 5/23/2012.
By Gene Logsdon – I was so gratified to see Wendell Berry’s remarks in a recent interview where he makes a point about economics that is overlooked in these days when divisiveness rules the political roost. The general view is that the economic battle is between capitalism and socialism, but as Wendell observes, “both are industrial systems and they have made the same mistakes in some ways.”
Eco-warriors, arise
