A Popular Mechanics article about a billion dollar agricultural crop that produces 4 times more paper pulp than trees!  Yes, it could be used to save the rain forest and possibly used to get us out of an economic crisis. Oh yeah, Popular Mechanics did this article  in 1938, right after the federal government outlawed it.
