And you probably also haven't realized that your taxes are subsidizing the growing of ethanol corn rather than feed corn and other food grains, turning farms into biofuel factories, driving the price of your daily bread through the roof, and threatening swathes of the globe's population with malnutrition. F William Engdahl reveals the facts behind the nonsense, and who profits from the biofuel bonanza.

What they have said about Foreign Press Review
"FPR'ın iki "kötü" özelliği var: 1. Alışkanlık yaratıyor, onsuz yapamaz hale geliyorsunuz; 2. Değeri alındığı değil, arada bir de olsa, alınamadığı vakit anlaşılıyor. Bir de sürekli bir kaygıya yol açıyor; 'Ya bir gün kesilir ve onu hiç alamazsam' duygusuyla sürekli yaşamak kolay değil."

Cengiz Çandar
