Does China Have Excess Land or Fewer Mouths to Feed?

As noted in Kovel’s article Chinese Pearl Farms Harvest Big Fresh Pearls

“…Chinese are growing freshwater pearls on “pearl farms” in old rice fields in central China…”

Now why would a populated country like China, reduce food production of a dietary staple?
Has China acquired additional land from another area of the planet?

hmm?
Maybe it is because these pearls are so rare and it’s highly profitable… NO!

It would seem to be a purposeful low balling of the pearl industry. I wonder who has seen fit to tout China and play world financial games once again. Whatever… Pearls have really never been a good investment. Maybe they should now be called “starvation pearls” to equate them to “blood diamonds“?
