canoer BS: Food, Farmers, making a living (45) RE: BS: Food, Farmers, making a living 20 Sep 00


Dear Ebbie, what you see are the successes. The far more numerous failures -- not through their own fault, but because of the problems -- are not visible except in the statistics. And the statistics don't change. The small farmer, the small businessperson, the small musician (let's say), are themselves constantly shrinking niches. The organic farmer, the new breed of "entrepreneur," the small independent labels, which do survive, can be called the "delaying tactics" in a general rout of the small by the big. It is not reversible. This is capitalism. Them that get the capital, prosper, at the expense of the rest of us. -- Canoer
