should be the government‘s job to protect farmers from a predatory financial sector
Washington is the predatory financial sector.

Unfortunately just like the vacations and painting loans aren't going to solve their problems.

I already showed that quote where a farmer wanted the price of his product to be 5 times the going rate. That's great for him but not great for the rest of us. Not to sound mean but his line of thinking isn't much different than what OPEC does...and we all know who are the winners/losers in that.

There's all sorts of farm subsidies but then that leads to other countries crying foul over tariffs.

If people want a society of cheap food and nobody going hungry the little farmer is going to get really hurt.
As @SalarHaqq, @Goenitz and two others have indicated macro maintenance of agriculture should be the job of the governance system. In other words nationalization of agricultural facilities.

No one needs to commit suicide because of lack of money. Money is an artificial artifact.
