If you believe food is the only commodity that matters try building a tractor or weather satellite from sand and corn.

/facepalm/ JTippets was talking about for survival. Try building a tractor or satellite without any food. Your workers would die.


I thought we were talking about real world economics and not some hypothetical zombie apocalypse.

How you got "hypothetical zombie apocalypse" out of what I said, I don't know. Agriculture is absolutely a part of "real world economics," and if the economy collapses, which is what we're talking about in this thread, agriculture is going to become waaay more important than it is now. And if the economy doesn't collapse, it's still true that hurting the agricultural industry actually hurts the entire population/economy because everything depends on it, everything is built on it. If you can't see that, then I'm talking to a brick wall.
