High unemployment, high commodity prices, weak dollar…oh, my!

In Agribusiness, Agricultural Entrepreneurship on June 15, 2009 at 9:09 pm

A weak dollar means it’s a good time for other nations to purchase US commodities, which are still near historic highs. Unfortunately, despite the need for bread and beef abroad, forecasts for wheat and beef exports were recently revised downward.

Meanwhile, US market share continues to fall as big crops in other countries have boosted global stocks.

Here at home, unemployment is soaring, leaving a lot of city folks wondering where to find a job.

High unemployment. No jobs.

More grain and livestock sellers than buyers.

Now is the time to bring the city and the country together by supporting the following types of research:

  • bio-adhesives
  • bio-pharmaceuticals
  • bio-composite building materials
  • on-farm bio-fuel production

And by support, I mean creating coalitions and cooperatives of producers, manufacturers and academic researchers with the intent of making MONEY and creating WEALTH.
