Your "corn monopoly" story with starving people (who apparently are unable to eat anythingy but corn) sounds like bunk. Please cite sources, please. Corn prices did rise, but it was due to government intervention in the market as it subsidized ethanol to the extent that corn was being diverted from food use to fuel. Also, communist China is hardly an example of an unfettered free market.
