Agricultural subsidies have the net effect of reducing the costs of food production and allowing food manufacturers, restaurant companies, and fast food chains to increase portion size while reducing food costs.
WHY is Entrepreneur touting bar meetings in 2010 and encouraging business executives to drink "power" drinks like scotch in order to discuss business? I don't get it ... and I could not be more disappointed. I think they were merely trying hard to be cutting-edge cool. And, I'm afraid an "influencer" like Entrepreneur might just encourage some young eager beavers who are not confident enough on their own to take the magazine's advice and end up with a business mess or possibly a life disaster on their hands. Their cover story seems like a giant leap BACKWARD for progress.
