One should be very careful before jumping into conclusion. The other night a watched a documentary on land grabbing from Dokument Utifrån, and yet again changed my view on the matter. When discussing the term land grab it goes without saying that it is biased against the action of foreign governments and companies the lease or buy land in Africa. But the consequences seems to be very difficult to assess at this stage. However there's a lot of hush-hush going on and that usually makes the alarm bells go off!
Supporters of the land grab say that it is bringing prosperity and much needed technological and infrastructural development, while the opponents say that it is neo-colonialism and depriving people of land. Judge for yourself http://svtplay.se/v/2320523/dokument_utifran/land_till_salu
