In this Thursday, Aug. 7, 2014, photo, fourth-generation tobacco farmer Chris Haskins pauses as he works at his curing barns facility in Chatham, Va. Starting next month, America’s remaining tobacco growers will be totally exposed to the laws of supply and demand. The very last buyout checks go out in October to about 425,000 tobacco farmers and landowners. They’re the last holdovers from a price-support and quota system that had guaranteed minimum prices for most of the 20th century, sustaining a way of life that began 400 years ago in Virginia.

FILE -This is a Friday, May 16, 1987 file photo of  the then British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher and her husband Denis as they wave to the audience after her speech at the Scottish Conservative conference  in Perth, Scotland. Thatcher has launched her general election campaign by promising more popular capitalism. With the Thursday Sept 18, 2014 referendum looming, proponents of Scottish independence are using one of the main weapons in their armory _ Scotland’s widespread mistrust of the Conservative Party. The Conservatives’ drop in support in Scotland can be largely traced back to 1979, when Margaret Thatcher won the general election and began 18 years of Tory rule. Successive Conservative governments introduced policies to turn around Britain’s economic fortunes, to reduce the role of the state and allow private enterprise to flourish.
