"After the collapse of the housing market and the dot-com bubble, private equity funds and hedge funds looking for new soft commodities are securing agricultural land in Africa that is cheap and close to water, so they can profit while the people of Africa are losing their most fertile lands and starving." -- Anuradha Mittal, executive director of Oakland Institute

But the GOP also dramatically increased their control of state legislatures from 14 to 26 – while winning total control of 21 states’ governors' seats and legislatures. In contrast, Democrats now control both the legislature and the executive branch in 11 states, down from 16. Story continues
