President Obama and many congressional Democrats argue that U.S.-based multinational firms are being unpatriotic by moving their corporate addresses overseas in order to reduce their taxes. Obama even implied they are “corporate deserters.” These are powerful, emotionally-charged allegations. But are they fair?

I just returned from the lush, rugged state of Cauca in southwest Colombia on a tour to uncover farm innovations that might do as much to secure lasting prosperity in the countryside as the ongoing peace negotiations between government and the FARC. A troubled and often disputed territory, Cauca is one of the four Pacific coast departments of Colombia and home to countless “campesino” coffee farmers who find themselves caught in the crossfire of the drug trade, guerillas, paramilitaries, the army, and large-scale oil drilling and gold mining operations. Shadowing Root Capital’s new – and first Colombia-based – loan officer, we headed to the remote mountains to meet with coffee growers who tend to their crops with a fervent devotion, following a process that has been handed down for generations. Their stories tell of a time of tumultuous change, emerging opportunity, and courageous leadership.
