Sound to me like a clear case of comparative advantage. Let Africa grow cotton.

We should stop growing cotton altogether and do other things.

It's just a myth that developin countries are not able to export because of subsidies in industrialized countries. Brasil and Argentina are doing nicely and exporting a lot, so they see no problems in their trade. Palm oil demand is high and the same goes for sugar. There are plenty of products that the developing countries can export easily but as some of them can't even feed their own population, how could they export food.

According to a Washington Post op-ed by former President Jimmy Carter, cotton costs 73 cents per pound to grow here but only 21 cents in Burkina Faso.

Sound to me like a clear case of comparative advantage. Let Africa grow cotton.
