The Curious Case of Brazilian Cotton Subsidies

A nice follow up to yesterday's farm subsidy post. Want to really get the kids fired up? Drop this little doozy of a story on their desks. That's right, we are subsidizing US cotton growers AND Brazilian cotton growers as well. I feel like this should entitle me to a free week vacation on Ipanema beach or something.

Ah, the tangled web we weave when we start doling out those farm subsidies.....Special Econ blog tip of the hat to Mark Jeffrey for sending this article along!
