98 Mitten5 >U.S. farmers, food processors and grain traders have spent months trying to prevent trade relationships from falling apart if the North American Free Trade Agreement implodes. They are trying to protect more than $19 billion in sales to Mexican buyers of everything from corn and soybeans to dairy and poultry. >...U.S. Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue said Thursday that he does not see a threat from Brazil to U.S. corn sales to Mexico because the U.S. has the advantage of proximity and logistics. This seems like a complicated issue. It would not be good to lose so much revenue from crop export. It would be good if so much of our arable land were not devoted to corn production. It would not be good to lose a trade partnership with our closest neighbor and a huge producer and consumer. It takes way more resources to ship from Brazil than it does from the US, but their production price is lower than that in the US.
33 pm_me_your_jandals Is it actually as alarming as the headline suggests? At the end the article still states that in 2017, US corn exports to Mexico still rose anyway to 14.7 million tonnes. This compared with Brazilian corn exports to Mexico of 583,000 metric tonne. Yes there has been a growth in the Brazilian imports, but there has not been a fall in US corn exports to Mexico. The article does state that there was an increase in demand for corn exports last year to compensate for the impact of a drought on domestic corn production.
11 StormTheTrooper It's a shame we (Brazil) are in such a political turmoil right now. This is (or was) the perfect time to unify all of Latin America on a single economic group. Summon Argentina, Chile and Mexico on a desk, write up a plan, call all the other countries and at least try to establish the MercoLat, MercoLatino, or whatever the name they decide. The US wants to turn itself into nationalism and trade with "non-shithole" countries? I'm 100% OK with that. I'm just sad our own president is incompetent and so weak he can't even lead the Mercosur in the Venezuelan humanitarian tragedy. I can't say much about Macri, but I hope Trump's reelected and our next president actually do something about international affairs. America's giving to us our best chance, since WWII, to find economic strength, and we're wasting it
55 2coolfordigg Trump only the best deals. Hahahahahahaha!
3 gord_m Similar problem here in Canada...we are responsible stewards of our forestry...but tariffs on our lumber means other less responsible players in the industry will take our place.
14 definitelyjoking I guess we're just ignoring: >**U.S. corn exports to Mexico also rose,** despite the rapid increase in the flow from Brazil Trump's a shitty President. We don't need to make up reasons why.
