Time: Want to Become Rich? Become a Farmer
New York--The July 11 issue of Time magazine reports that if you want to become rich, become a farmer.
The article quotes investment guru Jim Rogers, who predicts that farm income will rise dramatically in the next few decades, faster than other industries. “The essence of his argument is this: We don't need more bankers. What we need are more farmers. The invisible hand will do its magic,” Time declares.
“The world has got a serious food problem,” said Rogers. “The only real way to solve it is to draw more people back to agriculture.”
