apparently not.

But, but, but then those poor investment banks would've had to default on all the bad loans, mortgages, and securities they bet on for the sake of profit. Have you no heart, sir?

or one with no demand, business dies.
MMessEnnBeeCee - June 12, 2015, 10:11 am
Wouldn't it be nice if our government decided one day that capitalism should be treated as capitalism. Let businesses live or die on their own without intervention from the government. Make a good product that has demand, you survive. Make a bad product

In the 20th century, the U.S. started a policy of "go big or go home" farming that focused attention on crops like corn, which is a multifarious resource, but this led to its exploitation by agribusiness companies and thus why it floods the market today.
MMessEnnBeeCee - June 11, 2015, 2:38 pm
I guess the big question is why is it subsidized?
Cannabal - June 11, 2015, 11:28 am
As I said, corn is a subsidized crop, which means that agribusiness has a greater incentive to grow it, and of course, HFCS became a cheap and inexpensive ingredient to produce, especially when it was not subject to tariffs.
MMessEnnBeeCee - June 10, 2015, 4:54 pm
OK, that makes sense.

I think he's talking about the higher demand_for sugar created a lower cost for HFCS as the alternative
MMessEnnBeeCee - June 10, 2015, 11:04 am
Wouldn't higher demand result in higher prices?
Cannabal - June 10, 2015, 8:48 am
Corn is a heavily subsidized crop, that's why it became so cheap to grow, manufacture, and process for a number of products, one of them being this disgusting substance. But higher demand for real sugar is the key to lowering its overall price.

It's too expensive nowadays do to regulations restricting trade. In the past people even imported tea are filtered out the sugar because it was cheaper that US sugar, but that was banned.

What is it these days, mate? Last I checked they were charging the govt $100 a tray for mac and cheese in their cafeterias.
Cannabal - May 19, 2014, 7:09 pm
Oh, yeah, sure, if you start a war in the Middle East and happen to have ties to Halliburton, you're rolling in the godd'amn dough.
EmmaRoydes - May 19, 2014, 5:57 pm
it's good money though, much more than just beer money

The presidency is overrated, that's why it's gotten so bad.
RonaldReagan - May 18, 2014, 3:57 pm
True. Miss the days when my Pepsi had real sugar. Wish our nation had a real President. Bad for our health.
