Farm Commodity Prices falling

Recommended Posts

Go search for farmers financial health and crop prices.  Debt levels high for farmers.  Crops prices falling.

 

Imagine families who held farms for generation, including through the Great Depression to now have the current generation lose them because they supported a fool. 

 

 

Examples:  https://www.crescent-news.com/on_the_wire/editors_pick/as-trump-presses-trade-war-farmers-feel-the-squeeze/article_250c52f1-1ada-59d7-8a00-9efb59c688f1.html

 

Many Midwestern farmers decided last winter to plant soybeans in spring assuming that, by now, President Donald Trump’s trade war with China would be over and China would be back to buying about a third of soybeans grown in the United States.

 

“At that time, trade negotiations were moving along, and it wasn’t looking that bad,” said John Heisdorffer, an Iowa farmer and chairman of the American Soybean Association. Instead, China’s 25% tariff on U.S. soybeans remains in place and trade tensions are rising. The Trump administration is planning an additional 10% tariff on $300 billion worth of Chinese goods and Beijing announced this month that Chinese companies would stop buying all U.S. agricultural products.

 

The trade fight couldn’t come at a worse time for American farmers, who have endured over five years of low commodity prices. “Overall, out here in the country, things are getting pretty dire,” Heisdorffer said.

Did you even read the article? If you did (and understood it), you would know exactly what the prior years of down commodity returns from CHINA comes from (swine flu, not any policy related to the United States). 

 

What this should tell you is that farmers who primarily export their soy crop to China were already in a delicate position.  Then Trump dropped the hammer on them. THAT’S United States policy fucking over the American farmer. 

 

But truly, I’m all for any idiot who supported Trump to get what they deserve from the liar. 

But @Soxcatsaid Trump is here to help the American worker!

Don't waste your time trying to explain market economics to Jake.

 

You'd have more luck trying to teach calculus to a cow.

I know more about economics than the Dems do about politics. 

 

Can't even beat a big dumb, racist, sexist, pos like Trump. 

 

But that's who yall support. So what's that say about you?

My vocabulary is far from limited. You just aren't worth the effort. You say the dumbest things. Your prepubescent logic is on full display for all to see. It is why you are simple Jake.

 

Trump loves stupid people and stupid people love him back. It's why you defend him to the bitter end.

There are only so many ways to call someone stupid when they're being stupid.

 

It's like you think people are just being mean or insulting to hurt your feelings.

 

No... you're really just being an idiot in this thread.

Yes, that's right Bessie, a differential equation can describe how things change over time.

 

How are we going on the 'market economics to Jake' front?
