About "Ag Universities"
This brief contains arguments – not only against subsidizing African agriculture universities – but also against any case that deals with agricultural improvements in Africa. The NEG strategy will mainly look at big picture reasons why the AFF plan makes the problem worse; it disincentivizes investment from African governments. It also contains analysis of other initiatives that help Africa better than the U.S. government can. The solvency arguments present the multiple reasons why the AFF plan only changes a minute part of the issue. The real reason Africa is not spending on agriculture investment is because their governments are corrupt and inefficient. The plan only masks the real issue and makes it worse in the end. I would suggest running the first inherency argument as well as many solvency arguments as you can in the 1NC. Your framework really hits home when you impact your DAs in the 2NC. Good luck!
