Dayton v. Kennedy

Returning Senator Mark Dayton to the Ranks of the Idle Rich in 2006

1/25/2005

Economics 101

Presumably most beef farmers will have the good sense to realize that the way to expand exports is not to practice begger-thy-neighbor trade policy with you largest trading partner. Senator Dayton would have Japan open their borders to U.S. beef while, at the same time, denying it to Canadian beef.

You don't have to be interested in the minutia of beef trade policy to realize our trading partners can see the hypocricy. Beef producers will have fewer markets abroad and beef consumers will pay more at home.
