"GEMA Summary April, 15 1998:
Amount spent to produce food consumed
in the US in 1996 (farm cost): $126 billion.
Amount spent on marketing it: $421 billion"
Yesterday Steve Suppan of IATP sent me a short piece by a Montana wheat
farmer, Jerry Sikorski entitled "Oversupply or Monopoly?". It includes
"Tiger Woods gets paid ten cents for having his picture on each box of
Wheaties, and the farmer gets five cents for raising the wheat."
Can this really be true? I hope someone will pursue this further.
