US Too Dependent On Foreign Olive Oil

Matt Yglesias half-jokingly suggests that the US should produce more olive oil to offset its large share of global consumption. As a heavy-handed olive oil user and native Italian, I couldn't agree more. Olive oil is "liquid gold," as Homer (the Greek, not the Springfieldian) once praised it, and seriously makes up about a third of my diet.

So, as a way to offset my costs for the imported stuff, I implore you, bring on more local olive oils!

Press, baby, press!
