    • On February 07, 2008, by geos - here is the 'money' quote from the Pollan article: "The flow of immigrants north from Mexico since Nafta is inextricably linked to the flow of American corn in the opposite direction, a flood of subsidized grain that the Mexican government estimates has thrown two million Mexican farmers and other agricultural workers off the land since the mid-90s." the "immigration" debate is just an extension of the "globalization" debate and agricultural products are first and foremost a globally traded commodity.
