First they took our jobs

Posted by anandrr on January 1, 2008

red delicious apples at safal

Now they take our apples. At the local food supermarket, red delicious apples, the sticker on it claims that it was grown in Washington State. And at Rs 120/kg not that much more expensive than the $1-$1.50/lb you pay in the US. Globalisation was supposed to be all about agricultural produce flowing from the less developed countries to the more developed ones. Presumably Washington State invests serious money to subsidise its apple farmers?
