Trade Monopolies

The USA pays a farming subsidy (from tax payers) of $15,000 million a year to large food producing companies. This results in overproduction of food which is used for economic and political purposes.

Food is given to South Korea under a Food For Peace program that has undermined its own agricultural base. South Korea (an extremely fertile country) now imports 90% of its food from the USA.

American companies (like the Cargill Corporation) control 70% of the world's trade in grain. In spite of this overproduction of food, 40,000 children under the age of five die of malnutrition every day in the world.
