The Missouri Rural Crisis Center
Tim Gibbons, the Communications Director for the Missouri Rural Crisis Center (MRCC), drops by to talk about the crisis in our heartland. We discuss the problems with foreign ownership of American farmland, the loss of family farms to corporate interests, the consolidation of hogs and cattle into four major meatpacking companies (two of which are foreign-owned), the labeling of foreign beef as American and the lax approach that our congress has toward antitrust laws. All these factors are driving family farms out of business, depressing rural economies and jeopardizing our natural water supply for future viability of food production. Listen as Tim Gibbons describes what the Missouri Rural Crisis Center is doing about it; not only for Missouri, but for the nation overall.
