USA and Colombia

The USA sends free wheat to Colombia under an aid program called Food for Peace. This is paid for by USA taxpayers.

This policy has the effect of destroying Colombia's wheat growing industry which is a rival to that of the USA. The country has to concentrate on coffee which is more volatile in price. Many small holdings go out of business. This will eventually lead to cocaine cultivation.
