sean genovese biodeisel
 

                           Sean Genovese Discussing the Fine Points of Biodiesel Investing at Susan Czechowski's. In December I was thinking aobut investing in biodeisel. (I am capitalist scum, but the right sort of capitalist scum). I read in the Wall Street Journal  that American biodeisel is more expensive ($55.00 a barrel) than oil. But Brazilian biodeisel is cheaper than both at about $21.00 a barrel. Sugar cane makes cheaper diesel than corn. But the same subsidies that protect American sugar keep out Brazilian biodeisel. I'll stick to wind power.
