Jamie Oliveoil is having a boil up to campaign against Britain’s membership of the European Union.
I’ll leave that issue aside because this video is also a compelling argument against subsidies and for ensuring politicians and bureaucrats don’t interfere with the relationship between producers and consumers.
Agricultural Fudge, Subsidy Stew, Tariff Tortellini . . . however you cook them up they cause economic indigestion.
They cost taxpayers and consumers, they threaten food supplies, lead to gluts and shortages and they distort markets.
The people they hurt the most are the poor who can’t afford to pay more for their food and face unfair competition when they sell their produce.
