Re: Wrong Priorities
"Surely India should concentrate on"
One of the greatest tools for improving farming in poor rural areas has been satellite observation of ground features and one of the greatest tools for empowering rural farmers has been the mobile phone's ability to allow them to ensure the crop is sold for a decnt price befdore they hit town instead of relying on an unscrupulous middleman who would rip them off with low buy prices and then sell into local markets at a high rate. Farmers now KNOW the going rates before they set foot out the gate.
You were saying?
