Farmers have long complained about the instability of the prices paid for their cashew nut crops - as it fluctuates from season to season, he says.

Imagine that, commodity prices fluctuating.

Still, sounds like they got fucked out of the price that had been agreed to.

Definitely Bush's fault.

At least they were not rioting over what Brazil Nuts are sometimes called.

I have been there.  It is a very poor country, I mean poor.  

Corruption in the government is rampant.  This story does not suprise me at all.

What about all that Tanzanite that Stauer told me in their NRA magazine ad was worth a fortune yet for only $99 plus shipping I could have?
