About a minute into this video, the roundtable group of Aaron Task, John Authers, Jim Ellis and Liz Ann Sonders speak about ethanol and its impact on the farming industry and economics in general. Nobody sounds really excited about the ethanol market. As any reader of this site already knows, most of the U.S. ethanol comes from corn, which is not a very good source crop for the fuel. Now, even economists are taking their shots at the alternative fuel. Here's hoping that other alternatives to fossil fuels crops (HA!) up soon, or at least the U.S. can get off the corn based ethanol for other cellulosic sources.
