When no one can live without food, why are farmers still poor?


What do you think they are doing wrong? shouldn't they be at the top.

    Example: Third world Pakistan is the in the top 5 exporters in the world of chickpea, cotton, milk, date palm, sugarcane, mango and rice. Add apricot, onions, oranges and wheat to the top 10 list. Yet they are still poor ... middleman problems?

    interesting view ... so there is more supply than demand right? do you think they need to cut down the supply? Sorry I slept through all my economics classes. :)

    yeah, I was thinking the same... the middle man takes the bulk... but do you think we need more "farmers markets"?
