I'll go with E.

A: Many were led to thinking....strange use of tenses.
B: Unnecessary use of perfect past tense
C: thinking "of" overproduction is different from thinking "that". sentence is worded pretty roundabout.
D: the thought of overproduction, kind of changes the focus from the problem

'led' should come immediately after 'and' as the 'thinking' is part of the effects of the boom in agricultural expoerts.

D - 'as if it were' is awkward

E is best.
