Capitalism vs Communism vs Socialism in General Discussion Posted April 24, 2014 Re: Farming - as a profession it has one of the highest rate of suicide going. Farmers can't exactly walk out of their jobs because it's not just a job, it's their *home* too. They're also not employed by someone else - it's *their* business. If it goes under, they lose everything. Supply and demand is also a little broken when it comes to farming, because by-and-large farmers don't get any say in the price of what they produce. It's the supermarkets - the big buyers - dictating the prices. And, in some cases, those prices are actually *below* the cost it's taken to produce something. How many other manufacturers do you know that are effectively forced to sell everything they make at a loss?
