“What if Denmark farmed pharmaceuticals?” asked NORD.
What if Denmark — no longer encumbered by the dichotomy between the natural and the manmade — began to cultivate fields of mine sweeping plants and vaccine-laden tomatoes just outside of Copenhagen?
What if Denmark — two-thirds of which is devoted to low value traditional farming — reprogramed its agricultural production landscape to include high value biotech agribusiness?
What if Denmark — with the ability to generate more revenue from less land — returned all the unnecessary farmlands back to the people?
And what if Denmark also transformed some of those former farmlands into “Wilderness,” a new landscape that covers 20% of the country and one that is more or less continuous?
And here's another intriguing question: what if Denmark — by lessening its dependence on massive EU agricultural subsidies — fostered a freer global market, allowing developing countries to enter the market and begin self-sustaining economies?
