Unhappy For the American Farmer, It's the Great Depression Again

Farmers for Free Trade releases new report on the effects of China-US tarrif wars on American farmers

Farmers for Free Trade, a bipartisan campaign to rebuild support for trade at the grassroots level, today released a new report highlighting the significant impact Chinese retaliation from steel and aluminum tariffs will have on US wine, almond, walnut, pork, cherry, and many other commodity producers. The report also shows how economies of certain states will be hit hardest as a result. This new report is a part of the ongoing effort by Farmers for Free Trade to illustrate the negative impacts tariffs on American agriculture and amplify the voices of the many farmers who will be hurt by them.

“The tariffs described in this report are a tax on American farmers. They increase the cost of exporting, depress the prices of farm futures, and end up hurting the bottom lines of farmers in states across the country,” said Senators Richard Lugar and Max Baucus, co-chairs or Farmers for Free Trade. “They also incentivise trading partners like China to look to other markets for their imports. That means trading relationships that took decades to develop can evaporate overnight. And as many farmers and trade experts know, once you lose an export market it doesn’t come back immediately, in fact, it often takes many years for trading relationships to recover.”

After sorghum spat, U.S.-China trade fears halt soybean imports

SINGAPORE/BEIJING (Reuters) - China’s purchases of U.S. soybeans have come to a grinding halt, trade and industry sources say, as fears of further action by Beijing to curb imports of U.S. crops following last week’s anti-dumping move on sorghum rattles the agriculture industry.

Buyers from China, which takes 60 percent of soybeans traded worldwide, have not signed any new deals to take U.S. beans in the last two weeks, according to a Reuters review of data published by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA).

...

China’s imports of U.S. soybeans fell 27 percent in March compared with the same month a year earlier, customs data showed on Tuesday, while purchases from Brazil jumped by a third.

“We are now buying Brazilian, Canadian and some Argentina beans,” said a person familiar with soybean purchasing at a large crusher in China who was not allowed to be identified in media. “We are a state-owned company, we wouldn’t dare to buy U.S. beans.”

Trump: Farmers will understand if they get hurt in China trade spat

President Trump on Monday acknowledged that U.S. farmers could take a hit from trade disputes with China but said they will ultimately "understand" why the confrontation is necessary.

“But if we do a deal with China, if, during the course of a negotiation they want to hit the farmers because they think that hits me, I wouldn’t say that's nice. But I tell you, our farmers are great patriots,” Trump said.

“These are great patriots. They understand that they're doing this for the country," Trump said. "And we'll make it up to them. And in the end, they're going to be much stronger than they are right now.”

14 states hit record-low unemployment

Fourteen states have set new records for low unemployment rates in the last year, nearly a decade after the recession put millions of Americans out of work.

The states hitting new unemployment lows run the ideological gamut, from conservative Texas to liberal California, suggesting a recovery stronger than any particular political persuasion.

In March, eight states saw new record lows, including Hawaii (2.1 percent), Idaho (2.9 percent), Kentucky (4 percent ), Maine (2.7 percent), Mississippi (4.5 percent), Oregon (4.1 percent) and Wisconsin (2.9 percent).

Instead of agonizing over monthly variations, we should focus more on the number of Americans who are already working or who are looking for jobs, referred to as the labor participation rate. And it’s here where the problem lies. March’s participation rate came in at 62.9%, but that level is the worst since before the recession of 2009.

US grain ships diverted at sea hours after China imposes grain tariff

Five ships carrying tonnes of sorghum change course after Beijing imposes rule requiring 178% deposit


Ships laden with more than 1.2m tonnes of US sorghum bound for China may have no where to go amid the ongoing trade tensions between Beijing and Washington.

Twenty ships carrying more than $216m worth of sorghum were at sea on Friday, according to Reuters, but least five of them had changed course within hours of China’s announcement this week that it would place stiff tariffs on the grain.

...

China’s ministry of commerce said it would begin requiring deposits of 178.6% of the value of grain shipments. The five diverted sorghum ships, all loaded in Texas, would have had to pay that deposit, rendering their shipments unprofitable, Reuters reported.

https://www.theguardian.com/world/20...n-tariff-trade


word on the skreet is those ships have been diverted to saudi arabia.

gyna was like 'give us 178% or take that bullshit to the desert' and 'murica said 'saudi arabia it is, chief'



one massive L after another. public humiliation on the world stage.

but i still believe. mexico should be sending that check for the wall any day now. that'll solve everything.

From your link:

The three cargoes were sold to Saudi Arabia at a price of $190 a ton delivered, trade sources told Reuters.

A little research:

Where's the discount?

That’s a pretty nice discount. It would have otherwise been about $208 a tonne landed in the kingdom,” said a U.S. export trader who asked not to be named.
