Update: The tech fairy is playing games with this post.
It first made the comments I wrote below the picture, which I found on Facebook, disappear. Then it got rid of the all the links in the side bar.
Because of that I’ve dumped the picture and typed what it said:
If everyone went vegan, would it destroy our economy?
The milk industry uses 1,638,706 hectares of land. With this it employs 45,000 people and earns, $NZ10.4b in profit annually.
Per hectare of land that is:45000/1638706 = 0.027 employees and 10.4×106 = $6.346.47 in profit.The horticulture industry uses 121,000 hectares of land. With his, it employs 50,000 people and earns $NZ 4b in profit annually. Per hectare of land that is 50000/121000 = 0.4 employees and 4×106 /121000 = $33.057.85 in profit.
Changing land from dairy to horticulture would employ 15 times as many people and improved New Zealand’s profit 5-fold.
No it would probably improve it.
