USA : les dénis s’effritent

Better off bankrupt By Jeb Bush and Newt Gingrich January 27, 2011 States should have the option of bankruptcy protection to deal with their budget crises.

This article by Steve Green from the Food Freedom blog questions the motives of the act and is doubtful that it will come to any good for those who want to promote and enjoy homegrown foodstuffs. Are these concerns valid ? How can the government regulate food safety so that it protects both consumers and small farms ? S 510, the Food Safety Modernization Act of 2010, may be the most dangerous bill in the history of the US. It is to our food what the bailout was to our economy, only we can live without money. “If accepted [S 510] would preclude the public’s right to grow, own, trade, (...)    la suite »
