Why it is so difficult to develop a robust economy of small farmers…

I’ve not been as much concerned about income inequality in America as I am the lack of opportunity….and the petty use of money that appears to be the result of income inequality combined with government and civil behaviors that enable great concentrations of wealth.

Those petty behaviors – and the resulting wealth concentration – make it extremely difficult to provide adequate capital to rebuild America’s small farms.

I just read a weblog entry from a farm commentator (whom I know to be intelligent) who was suggesting that the only way in the future for young folks to ‘get into farming’ is to become a worker in a ‘farm corporation’.

That is an environmentally and economically hopeless notion!

Is Income Inequality ‘Morally Wrong’?
