Where do you plan to invest? (in which State?)The best hedge against crop price fluctuations is to become an artisanal brand -- the price one gets for ones crop will be high and almost uncorrelated with commodity prices.It might be called the "Trackstar Cheese & Chocolate Company" or maybe "Keptmann Farms".Glad to hear. Better than "Unkemptmann farms", what?Indeed! No unkempt men would be allowed on Trackstar's farm.Shipshape and Bristol fashion, what?Tribal Man, maybe?Quote"There are ten thunders in the Wake. Each is a cryptogram or codified explanation of the thundering and reverberating consequences of the major technological changes in all human history. When a tribal man hears thunder, he says, 'What did he say that time?', as automatically as we say 'Gesundheit.'" As least a tribal man knows what to do in bad weather. TM close to nature, what? He know how to deal with kakkerlakkens? Kaizen for Vico cyclists?
