On June 3, an article entitled “China’s positive contributions to ensuring world food security” in the party newspaper exposed in detail how the “four major grain traders” in the United States and the world contributed to the global food crisis, how to harvest the food wealth of various countries, and how to loot while the fire was burning. The article said:

Multinational grain traders monopolize the global grain pricing power and seize economic “windfall profits”. The four “ABCD” grain traders, namely ADM, Bangui, Cargill and Louis Dreyfus, monopolize more than 80% of the world’s grain transactions, three of which are American enterprises. At a time of high international grain prices, the four major grain traders, relying on their global monopoly position and strong capital strength, are driving the wind and rain in the grain futures market, buying at a low price and selling at a high price, and wantonly reaping the grain wealth of various countries. In April this year, the shares of ADM and Bangui rose by more than 50% and 40% respectively compared with January. The wealth of Cargill family members soared by 20% this year. Louis Dreyfus expects profits to grow by 80% this year.

The article said that the western countries led by the United States used grain to secure hegemony and reaped political “practical benefits”. The United States took advantage of the panic of the international community, especially the food shortage developing countries, to weaponize the “food crisis”, incite developing countries to hate Russia and resent China, encourage Russia to be investigated for “war and famine crimes”, and engage in geo strategic and camp confrontation.

The article also disclosed that through sampling inspection, the Syrian agricultural department found that 40% of the 3000 tons of wheat seeds assisted by the US Agency for international development to Syria contained grain nematode disease, which was not only not suitable for planting, but also brought great harm to local agricultural production and undermined the food security of Syria. At the same time, the US military stationed in Syria sent 40 trucks to smuggle local wheat and

He played a modern version of the national annihilation policy of “borrowing raw grain and returning dead grain”.

The grain issue is essentially a political issue. An important aspect of American hegemony is food hegemony. In the process of the collapse of the Soviet Union, grain weapons and the four major grain merchants also played an inestimable role.

How do the four major grain traders control global grain? How is the US government, Wall Street and food capital deeply colluding? How do they harm the target countries?

What lessons should we learn from other countries? Today’s article will answer these questions.

1? Four big grain merchants everywhere

“As long as you live, you can’t escape the world’s four food giants.”

The so-called four major grain traders, namely archer danielsmidland (ADM), Bunge, Cargill and Louis Dreyfus (abbreviated as ABCD). With the support of the U.S. government and Wall Street, after several rounds of large-scale integration, the four giants finally dominated more than 70% of the global grain trade.

The following is a brief introduction to the four major grain merchants. Readers who know about them can skip and look directly at the following analysis.

A: ADM (USA)

ADM is one of the largest oilseed, corn and wheat processing enterprises in the world. About 2/3 of its income comes from the processing of soybean, peanut and other oilseeds. ADM is one of the largest agricultural processors and food ingredient suppliers in the world. It has a large number of factories and transportation networks in dozens of countries and regions around the world. The four main businesses are agricultural services, oilseed processing, corn processing and nutrition.

B: Bunge limited, Bangui (USA)

Established in 1818, Bangui is the world’s leading oilseed processor and the largest producer and supplier of fertilizer for farms in South America. Bangui is currently the largest grain exporter in Brazil, the second largest exporter of soybean products, the third largest grain exporter and the third largest soybean processor in the United States, and the fourth largest grain exporter and the largest oil crop processor in the world.

C: Cargill, Cargill (USA)

Headquartered in Minnesota, the United States, Cargill is considered one of the largest private companies in the West. Its business covers 68 countries, has more than 150000 employees worldwide, and transports 200 million tons of goods every year. It is a diversified multinational enterprise group integrating food, agricultural, financial and industrial products and services.

D: Louis Dreyfus, Louis Dreyfus (France)

Headquartered in France, Louis Dreyfus covers many fields, such as grains, oilseeds and rice. According to its official website, the company grows, processes and transports about 80million tons of agricultural products worldwide every year, providing food for about 500million people around the world.

The history of the four major grain traders can be traced back to onehundred or even twohundred years ago. With the advantages of their capital and experience, the four giants have formed monopoly control over international grain trade in many fields, such as collection and storage, logistics, shipping, finance, trade, etc. these transnational grain traders have long mastered the whole industrial chain of world agriculture, and they can wantonly create food crises and manipulate the world.

How much influence do the four major grain merchants have? It’s no exaggeration to say that as long as you live, you can’t escape the world’s four giants. The four major grain traders control the whole global grain industry chain and control the food problem of more than 7 billion people around the world.

Cargill, one of the four major grain traders, wrote in a pamphlet:

We are the flour in your bread, the wheat in your noodles, the salt in your French fries… The chocolate in your dessert, the sweetener in your soft drinks… We are the beef, pork or chicken you eat for dinner, the cotton on your clothes, and the fertilizer in your fields.

This seemingly warm and beautiful advertising words, but let people see a cold sweat.

KFC and McDonald’s, which have tens of thousands of restaurants around the world, mostly come from the four major grain merchants. Well known edible oil brands such as Golden Arowana and hujihua actually belong to Fengyi international, a foreign-funded company. The largest shareholder of Wilmar international is ADM, one of the four major grain traders.

In 2018, the United States launched a sweater war, and China instead imported soybeans from South America. Although it bypassed the United States, it could not bypass the four major grain traders, because South American soybeans were also in their hands.

On the surface, this global and highly penetrating industrial control power is the result of “free competition” in the market. In fact, it is a capital trap and food trap carefully laid out by Wall Street, food capital and the US government. On the one hand, it makes a lot of money, on the other hand, it plays the food card, launches a food war and controls the world.

When did the US government, Wall Street and food capital collude?

2? Deep collusion between the US government, Wall Street and food capital

In the 1970s, the United States was deeply mired in the Vietnam War, coupled with the fierce offensive of the Soviet Union, the rise of the economies of allies such as Europe and Japan, and the first oil crisis, the American economy encountered serious difficulties, and the hegemony of the US dollar was challenged unprecedentedly.

The United States urgently needs to find another tool besides gold and oil that can maintain dollar hegemony. Grain has thus entered the vision of the US government.

??

At that time, although the cold war between the United States and the Soviet Union was in the most intense period, and the Soviet Union had the upper hand, it was very weak on the food issue. Due to the unreasonable industrial structure and the accumulation of wrong grain policies over the years, the problem of grain supply has always made the Soviet Union very passive.

So, in 1972, the Soviet Union sent a large-scale grain purchasing mission to the United States to purchase. At that time, the United States asked the Soviet Union for more favorable prices on geopolitical issues. On the surface, the Soviet Union took advantage. However, the Soviet Union suffered from serious food import dependence.

Nixon was keenly aware that grain can become a diplomatic weapon and strategic weapon, and the use of grain weapons requires the cooperation of the four major grain traders, who, after all, control the whole industrial chain of global grain trading.

Without the cooperation of the four major grain traders and the “infrastructure” of grain trading, the United States’ grain diplomacy would not be successful. Among the so-called infrastructure of the four major grain traders, the most powerful one is the global logistics system.

??

Among the four large and medium-sized enterprises, ADM and Cargill in the United States originated on the banks of the Mississippi River, while Bangui in the Netherlands and Louis Dreyfus in France controlled most of the logistics channels of Amsterdam port and the Rhine River.

For more than 100 years, the four major grain merchants have been widely distributed like octopus on the global geographical channel, building granaries, ports and barges all over the world… Step by step, they have built a global logistics system.

Take Cargill for example. Up to now, Cargill has more than 1000 barges, leased 350 ocean going ships, docked at more than 6000 ports every year, and transported more than 200 million tons of dry bulk cargo.

Few people know that, as a grain enterprise, Cargill could also build ships. In the early days, it built ships along the Minnesota River to transport grain. During World War II, 18 ocean going ships and 4 tugs were even built for the US Army.

ADM also owns 52 ocean going vessels and more than 2500 barges. Moreover, they not only transport grain, but also coal, iron ore, oil and other strategic materials.

In this way, the U.S. government and the food capital both have the ambition of external expansion and have the value of mutual utilization, so they hit it off and started the road of food globalization. On the surface, it is food globalization, but in fact it is food weaponization and food politicization.

A landmark event of the deep collusion between the U.S. government and the food capital was that William Pierce was appointed by Nixon as a trade negotiator in 1972 and later joined the economic development commission to assist the president in formulating U.S. agricultural policies.

Before entering the US government, he was the vice president of Cargill. As soon as he took office, he “suggested” the US government: through food aid, pressure foreign governments to give up staple food such as rice and wheat and instead produce cash crops such as fruits, vegetables and sugar.

How to deceive these countries? They made up a saying that “under free trade, staple food can be bought at will!”

Is it familiar? Some people who advocated “buying is better than building” later suggested that the state give up the red line of 1.8 billion mu of cultivated land, using the same reason and logic.

Of course, it is difficult to achieve the goal by pressure and deception alone. So they made two big moves.

One is the chemical fertilizer and pesticide revolution, which fooled the world into using western “advanced” pesticides and fertilizers; The other is the seed revolution, which deceives other countries to use western genetically modified seeds.

These two revolutions have kidnapped the agricultural production of most countries. First of all, many countries do not have the ability to produce their own chemical fertilizers and pesticides and rely heavily on imports; Second, the seed revolution is more insidious and harmful. As we all know, the harm of genetically modified seeds will not be carried out here.

It is Dow Chemical, DuPont and other giants that produce chemical fertilizers and pesticides, and Monsanto is the giant of genetically modified seed industry. Therefore, the four major grain merchants, DuPont, Dow and Monsanto are closely united to form a huge interest complex with amazing influence and penetration, and plunder cities and land around the world.

Before these two “revolutions”, farmers in various countries kept their own seeds and composted their own. In other words, they did not depend on others. But the fertilizer revolution and the seed revolution have completely changed this pattern of grain production.

Most countries in the world, therefore, rely heavily on the West for food production.

In addition, the West has launched a financial war to closely cooperate with the food war and diplomatic war. On the one hand, it has gained huge profits, and on the other hand, it has manipulated the target countries.

3? Argentina’s painful lesson

Since the 1990s, Argentina has experienced a normalized debt crisis. At this time, Monsanto took advantage of the weakness.

??

In 1996, after being authorized by the Argentine government, Monsanto entered Argentina through the Argentine local seed enterprise nidera as a leading Party. Instead of directly selling seeds to farmers, Monsanto indirectly sold seeds to farmers through these local agents to earn licensing fees. Monsanto had planned to collect another patent fee, but it failed because of Argentine legal restrictions.

Because there is no need to pay patent fees, the production cost of Argentine soybeans is almost 1/3 of that of their American counterparts, and they are very competitive in the international market. Argentine farmers have switched to genetically modified soybeans and secretly sold genetically modified seeds on the black market.

Monsanto paid attention to the illegal acts of Argentine farmers, but did not pay attention to them, and even deliberately allowed the black market to trade. A single spark can start a prairie fire. Genetically modified soybeans soon accounted for 75% of the total Soybeans Planted in Argentina. Argentina itself quickly became one of the three major soybean planting countries in the world. Farmers made money, the government had foreign exchange to repay debts, Monsanto expanded its market share, consumers ate cheap agricultural products, and four people won a table of mahjong.

Three years later, seeing that the leeks were almost tall, Monsanto took out his sickle.

In 1999, Monsanto again proposed to charge farmers the patent fee for genetically modified soybean seeds, which was again rejected by the Argentine government. But this time with Monsanto was the Pinkerton detective company.

??

The logo of Pinkerton detective company says “we never sleep!”

The “gene detectives” of Pinkerton company disguised themselves as pile drivers, or sneaked into the fields, or broke into the masses, or placed eyeliner in the town to collect farmers’ activity information, or pretended to be statisticians to knock on Farmers’ homes to collect data, or sneaked into seed marketing companies and production cooperatives. Whenever farmers were found to have used Monsanto’s genetically modified soybean seeds, they immediately secretly took photos or video evidence.

After the evidence was collected, Monsanto did not sue Argentine farmers this time. Instead, Monsanto sued European buyers of Argentine soybeans in Britain, Denmark, the Netherlands and other countries, asking them to pay patent fees for Argentina. Subsequently, European buyers’ demand for Argentine soybeans decreased significantly, and a large number of Argentine soybean farmers suffered heavy losses.

Although the Argentine government is very angry, under the impact of Monsanto in the past few years, Argentina’s local seed and fertilizer enterprises have already closed down in batches. 90% of the country’s soybean fields use Monsanto’s seeds. If you don’t want to lose money, you have to dig all the seeds and replant them.

In the end, the Argentine government was forced to give in and not only paid Monsanto the “technology compensation fund”, but also allowed it to apply for a patent in Argentina. In less than a decade, Monsanto became the most important participant in the Argentine soybean industry by virtue of GM technology.

In just a few years, the fertile pampas grassland has become the world’s largest transgenic laboratory. A large number of forests have been cut down and hundreds of thousands of farmers have been forced to leave their homes. At the same time, Brazil serrado, another prairie in South America, has also become a super Laboratory for transgenic.

This is just a microcosm of the world controlled by the four major grain traders.

4? How the West controls the grain pricing power

After controlling the grain production, the next step for the four major grain traders is to control the grain pricing power.

A major obstacle to controlling pricing power is the grain reserve system that many countries are implementing. But this system has obviously prevented the giants from harvesting the world.

Therefore, they continue to advocate marketization and free trade to governments of various countries. In the end, many countries foolishly and shortsightedly abandoned the grain reserve system that they had followed for many years.

Without grain reserves, grain prices are determined by the so-called market, which is not only a physical market, but also a futures market. Few people know that the four major grain traders are also important participants in global commodity trading.

Cargill is known as “Goldman Sachs of commodity trading”, which owns a number of investment companies, including the famous “Heihe asset management company”

In the bulk commodity trading market, the four major grain traders have an advantage that others cannot match. As they are deep participants in the global grain market, they know the market better than others.

Cargill, for example, has a huge global intelligence collection network. Every day, weather, crop growth, prices and other data from all over the world flow to Cargill headquarters for relevant personnel to make decisions.

In order to collect the cocoa production in C ô te d’Ivoire, Cargill employees will squat at the gate of each cocoa warehouse all day and count the number of trucks of competitors. It is said that Cargill’s ability to obtain agricultural information exceeds that of the CIA!

It is precisely this ability that has enabled the four major grain traders to make a windfall in global grain trading, while controlling grain prices to a large extent. Other countries have to accept their pricing.

Under their control, global food prices are rising, soaring to the highest level in the past decade!

According to the UN food price index, global food prices rose for the 12th consecutive month in May this year, with a year-on-year increase of nearly 40%. The rise in food prices is, of course, influenced by the epidemic situation, but more by the four major grain traders who have secretly manipulated the situation.

In many developing countries, hundreds of millions of poor people suffer from hunger because of riots and riots caused by rising food prices. While some countries are in purgatory, Wall Street staged a feast of wealth harvest.

Food is a weapon.

The United States is very good at weaponizing food.

??

John bullock, Secretary of agriculture in the Reagan administration, once said bluntly: “it is to tie countries to us so that they will not make trouble with us.”

According to the US Central Intelligence Agency, the lack of food in the third world countries has given the United States an unprecedented strength. “Washington actually has the power to kill or kill the vast number of food hungry people.”.

Despite the relative decline of the United States today, the food weapons and food hegemony are still very strong. It is difficult for other countries to take advantage of the United States in the food field.

On the one hand, North America is a fertile land and a global granary; On the other hand, the food power of the United States, in the final analysis, comes from the industrial capital represented by the four major grain traders. It is their decades of marriage that forged this powerful sword of power.

A few years ago, a few domestic scholars argued that China should give up the red line of 1.8 billion mu of cultivated land, because when food is needed, it can be imported. These people probably forgot how the Soviet Union died.

In 1979, when the Soviet Union invaded Afghanistan, the United States announced a food embargo against the Soviet Union without blinking an eye;

In 1972, the Soviet Union seemed to have taken a big advantage in the large-scale purchase of grain in North America, but it became dependent on American grain;

Throughout the 1970s, due to the soaring oil price, the Soviet Union traded back a large amount of food through oil exports to the United States;

However, in the 1980s, when the oil price plummeted, the Soviet Union immediately fell into a dilemma and was heavily indebted.

Many people naively believe in free trade and that grain can be imported at will. Andreas, who founded the ADM grain Empire, made a ruthless mockery of this:

“No grain in the world is sold on the free market. Not a grain!”

5? Always be alert to the layout of the four major grain merchants

Over the years, China has been very sober. It has strictly prevented and adhered to the red line of 1.8 billion mu of cultivated land, thus preserving the jobs of the Chinese people. More importantly, our grain reserve system is the oldest and most advanced in the world, which can effectively hedge against international grain speculators. Even so, our food security situation cannot tolerate the slightest carelessness.

In 2004, China’s local soybean processing and oil pressing enterprises were almost wiped out under the crazy pressure of the four major grain merchants. What happened to this big game?

Before 1994, China’s soybeans were basically self-sufficient, and even exported to foreign countries at harvest time. However, with the rapid development of China’s economy and the continuous improvement of people’s living standards, the demand for meat has increased significantly. As one of the main raw materials of animal feed, the domestic output of soybeans has been insufficient to meet the demand. Therefore, China began to import soybeans from abroad in large quantities.

China’s huge soybean demand has attracted the attention of the four major grain traders. They have jointly manipulated the soybean price in the United States and nearly doubled it. Since 75% of Chinese soybeans are imported, the domestic soybean price has also risen. Seeing this, Chinese soybean farmers began to expand their planting in large numbers. They thought they could sell a good price. Unexpectedly, in April, 2004, the four major grain traders began to sell soybeans, leading to a sharp decline in global soybean prices and huge losses for Chinese soybean farmers.

Moreover, at that time, the high priced soybeans imported by many Chinese enterprises were still on the sea and were preparing to be transported back to China. However, the price of soybeans had fallen by more than half as soon as the cargo ships started, which led to the bankruptcy of many Chinese crushing enterprises because they could not bear huge losses. The four major grain traders took the opportunity to acquire many companies, so that China’s crushing industry was basically controlled by the four major grain traders.

According to the data, by 2008, 64 of the more than 90 major oil pressing enterprises in China had become wholly foreign-owned or joint ventures, which together controlled 85% of China’s actual processing volume. As a result, in 2007, while our staple food withstood the test of soaring international food prices, the price of edible oil soared.

It is rumored that at that time, COSCO urgently put 200000 tons of edible oil into the market to stabilize the oil price, but it was like a stone sinking into the sea, because 70% of it was bought by multinational grain traders.

In addition to the above public information, what are the unknown layouts of the four major grain merchants that have changed their appearance and sold dog meat with sheep’s head? This deserves our high attention and vigilance. In the grain sector, any move by foreign investment needs vigilance, especially at the moment.
