- OK, maybe I was being a tad harsh... Via Andrew and Tim Worstall, President Bush offers to scrap US farm subsidies, as long as the EU scraps the CAP:
"Let’s join hands as wealthy industrialised nations and say to the world, we are going to get rid of all our agricultural subsidies together. And so the position of the US Government is, we are willing to do so, and we will do so with our fine friends in the European Union."Interesting... Bush knows it'll never happen, so I reckon my earlier snide point still largely stands, but interesting nonetheless.
