This is one of the most horrible and sad news stories I have ever read. It’s about a new commodity being taken from Latin America. Just go read it.
And while you do, maybe wonder a little bit: Why didn’t poor Peruvians vote for the status quo in the presidential election? And why do business reporters spend 90% of their time writing meaningless market stories about crack spreads and treasury bills, when they could be writing stories like this one? And no matter how bad my life may feel at times, am I lucky, or what?
OK, enough. Go read. Really.
