Yep, as we grow in deeper dept to a hungry, exploding Chinese population, it will not be foreclosures we will be talking about.
We may not be able to afford the bounty of our own land.
Just as our raw materials pour out of the country only to comeback processed as junk to fill our hardware stores...so will our food supply...taken , processed and returned , at a price that will numb the imagination.
We could see a "byproduct" main food supply,...a creative , over processed leftover.
No,the Chinese may not be able to buy our farmland, but the looming silent monster of student loans,whose dept is being bought up by Beijing ,may be used in ways not imagined.
As a Chef and father of five,the vision of planting a vegetable garden is looking good right about now.
