Bye, bye, bananas
In the mid 1900s, the most popular banana in the world—a sweet, creamy variety called Gros Michel grown in Latin America—all but disappeared from the planet. At the time, it was the only banana in the world that could be exported. But a fungus, known as Panama Disease, which first appeared in Australia in the late 1800s, changed that after jumping continents. The disease debilitated the plants that bore the fruit. The damage was so great and swift that in a matter of only a few decades the Gros Michel nearly went extinct.

Abolish the Department of Agriculture
I have been writing for months about the Export-Import Bank being one of the worst crony programs in Washington. However, I think the programs under the Department of Agriculture may take the cake. I have written many times about the outrageous sugar program — a racket that protects a politically powerful cartel of domestic sugar-processing companies at the expenses of consumers and taxpayers. Then, there is awful ethanol program. We also have programs like the Dairy Margin Protection Program (DMPP) and the Dairy Market Stabilization program (DMS). DMPP effectively guarantees profits for dairy farmers and DMS is a complicated program meant to drive up milk prices to benefit small-scale dairy farmers.

Subordinating the Constitution to progressive internationalism: From Libya to climate change
In his speech at the global climate change conference in Paris, President Obama made it clear that he would like to reach an international agreement that would mitigate the harmful effects of climate change, with each nation binding itself to targets to reduce carbon emissions. What was missing from his speech (and elsewhere) was an acknowledgement that to be binding on the United States any such agreement would need to be in the form of either an executive agreement that would require the approval of both houses of Congress, or a treaty, which would require a positive vote from two-thirds of the Senate. It’s very unlikely that either of these things would be forthcoming from the Republican-controlled Congress.
