Gram wise, pound foolish


Ben,

The organization is the AMERICAN Hosta Society, not the INTERNATIONAL
Hosta Soc nor any other pretensions.  Even though it is the AMERICAN HS,
membership is open to all, not just citizens of the USA.  It appears that
the membership fee difference would be in postage costs - but then maybe
I am confused as I did not follow all your % discount discussions.

Inasmuch as "the Dutch" export a high dollar value crop of Hosta each
year to USA (even some of it mislabeled, according to many growers), it
would seem that if the Dutch want to continue and perhaps improve their
market share, The Government would want to support its growers who make
$millions off the Americans.  It has nothing to do with the AHS dues. 
Their supported research benefits their growers - and hopefully
consumers, no matter what country they live in.

Charles
