The European states were very successful

...................in developing PLANTATIONS of wide range of commodities, and gourmet food produce in the NIGER BASIN, and in the Kenyan plains.

China should start to negotiate to develop plantations in CONGO BASIN, the NILE BASIN and Madagascar. This would mean to choose location with BEST DEVELOPED civil  governance. Logical choice would still be well administered Kenya, Tanzania. Congo Basin still have huge trouble with REBEL movements with lot of weapon supplied!

It's would still be the AMAZON BASIN, Pampas at the moment in lieu of civil situation in the huge African capacity!

cheerios!

Many American young generational folks - study in the big city - don't want to work like old dad and mom in the "country"
.
It's a big problem in the USA, partially solved by importation of millions of Hispanic seasonal workers!
Many of the crops that need "seasonal labour" has been stagnant.
Now USA is a big importer of apple, orange juice from Brazil, China.
It imports almost 80% of all aquatic food, mostly from China, Thailand.


cheerios!

The African agriculture land becomes a HOT COMMODITY.

The Congo basin, Nile Basin, Niger Basin and of course the massive island of Madagascar now is in the sight of the BIG PLANTATION companies.

Today on the Guardian online newspaper - It reports American college funds are buying up crop land in Africa. It reports that China, Europe is not too far behind the trend. Africa not only has a low population density, only 1 person in 3 hectares - but it has the manpower, 80% rural population, water - the river basin, and rain swept coastal, islands.

Cheerios!

Where will Americans find the "hill people" to

...........grow the massive "Ginger Crop" in plantations?

Will American food, post 2050, be mostly imported on the back of the massively minted US$.
Or will Americans be forced to eat HAMBURGERS, with french fries, cabbage salad on a daily basis?

cheerios!

In a CRISIS, American will be faced with

........a boring diet.

Yes! Burgers, French Fries, Coleslaw and a cup of milk.
If there is no importation of food from the rest of the world!
