The Daily, Tuesday, May 25, 2010. Farm income
Realized net farm income amounted to $3.6 billion in 2009, down $10 million (-0.3%) from 2008, as both receipts and operating costs declined.

The Conservation Reserve Program (CRP) aims to reduce soil erosion, improve air and water quality, enhance wildlife habitat, preserve the productive ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

The recovery is losing steam, fast
Another day, another lousy piece of economic data. The 27.2 percent fall in existing home sales in July was far below analysts' official expectations (though in line with some of the whisper numbers that close watchers of housing data were expecting). And financial markets have again taken notice; money continues gushing into safe U.S. Treasury bonds, sending the yield on those bonds to 2.52 percent as of 11 a.m. (it reached as low as 2.48 percent earlier this morning). There's a pattern here, and it's not a good one. Virtually every major economic indicator to come out in the past two months has been ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
Breisch: Is customer always right?
You have the money, and they have a product or service. You are the customer, they are the supplier, and, according to a common aphorism, you are always right. The customer always is, right? Not so fast! What if we meander back to the days of barter? Suppose I farm, you have plows and John, who lives over yonder hill, has parts to fix the plow I got from you. What if we decide to trade our goods and services … who needs money! But if we’re not using money, who is the supplier and who is the customer? Who is always right? It’s even more confusing when I am the one with the money and it seems as if the ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

All effects of globalization are positive only: there are no negative effects.The so-called negative effects are the consequences of loss of employment in inefficient, uncompetitive industries, loss of monopoly power of local industries/ businessmen and traders to exploit consumers by charging them prices that are higher than the imported goods and by supplying low quality products as compared to internationally available quality.The most positive effects of globalisation are elimination of local monopolies, elimination of inefficiency, access to opprtunities available all over the globe for every citizen of different countries ...
