Thanks for the article Stephen, however I am weary as to the
outcome of this situation.
Zimbabwe is one of worst countries for economic freedom, just
above Laos and Cuba. (Check statistics on nationmaster.com)
This could possibly become an issue of slavery. There should be
fair wage programs for the farmers who grow and harvest biofuels,
however I have no idea how to do this. Nonetheless, wouldn't it
be good if they sold fair-trade biodiesel??
