I don't have it with me, but I'll check that nex time I'm out to the farm. I doubt it's as significant as all that. I know it has been through more than one printing with some corrections and additions. In a large book with an enormous amount of material I expect a certain(small) number of errors, and I expect the author to address them when they are discovered.
There seems to be a lot of confusion about what "capitalism" is. I highly recommend David Graeber's 'Debt: The First 5000 Years' to get a reasonable background in the history of human economies and the origins of money.
Any updates? I'm putting together a move out there.

"Organic, shade-grown, fair trade, for $4-5/lb"

At least one of those claims is false. Probably the fair trade is less than fair. $4-5/lb isn't enough to pay the middlemen and pay a decent price to the farmer/laborer.

I'm working on a move to the Big Island and looking to make a scouting trip in the next few months, work and finances permitting. I live off grid(no electricity, wood heat, composting toilet, gardening, forestry, etc) in Indiana currently. I don't have experience in tropical horticulture specifically, but am reasonably skilled with hand tools used in farming, forestry, and orchardry.
What is the nearest CDP(town like place) to your farm? How long are wanting people to stay and what arrangements are/can be made for those who do so?
