Politics, money, and war.

Friday, June 6

at least it's public

USAID has posted a synopsis for a $40 million dollar contract to "expand agriculture productivity, rehabilitate key agroecosystems, and restore the capacity of rural agroenterprise to produce, process, and market agricultural goods and services." It will be interesting to see which US federally subsidized agri-business gets the contract and if genetically engineered agricultural crops will play a key role in the decision.

USAID also posted a $30 million dollar grant to "establish partnerships between U.S and Iraqi colleges and universities to invigorate and modernize Iraq’s institutions of higher education" The partners will be up to 6 American schools (and/or consortiums) and their Iraqi counterparts. Harvard, Yale, Texas?

Perhaps we are too cynical today.
