Farmers Take Heat, but Big Agriculture Reaps Farm Bill Benefits

Tallying up the farm bill, which Congress will likely vote on this fall, yields 
losers and winners. The losers: farmers, farm laborers, food processing workers,
rural communities, the environment, poor country peasants, many developing country
agricultural industries, and urban laborers in both developed and developing countries
facing wage competition from rural migrants and US taxpayers. The winner: corporate
agribusiness.
