India’s neglected Agriculture

http://www.nytimes.com/2011/02/12/business/global/12food.html?_r=1

Urban-based, manufacturing, high-tech industries are paid so much attention at the expense of agriculture. The paper mentioned that the law also bars corporation from farming directly for food crop, the part which I don’t really understand the implication behind.

Since Green Revolution, now half of Indian still in malnourish, and hunger.

Farmers still lack of irrigation, and electricities needed.

Two separate worlds in one country is very common nowadays.

For more on food price, see here and here.

Vietnam: By Jan 2011, the CPI is more than 12% (2010 base), of which food stuff price index nearly 18%. “The worst form of taxation”, cited the paper on India.
