Mensagem:  Hi Pat, I think the USA should stop subsidising its farmers and and stop being hypocritical. A great advocate of free trade but only when it concerns their own exports. Brazil now produces certain crops with a higher yield per acre than the USA. This is obviously worrying to the USA and therefore their concern with the Amazon. The US having destroyed all their own forests, (as you write: all suitable land is in use), it is now for Brazil to preserve the Amazon so the Americans will have oxygen. Never mind that they are the world's greatest polluters and break international treaties in this respect. As with regards to labour being exploited, probably no worse than the way the Americans treat illegal Mexican workers. Besides: the tendency of sucessful farming in Brazil is not labour intensive. One of the best bets for Brazil to compete in the world is precisely agriculture.
