Dr. Barry Flinchbaugh, agricultural economics professor at Kansas State University, is concerned about two things in agriculture; the American economy as it sits today and the ongoing trade wars. “The American Economy is growing very slowly and there is the possibility of a recession,” says Flinchbaugh. “The big problem facing agriculture is trade wars. China, Mexico and Canada are our top three customers, so it’s difficult to sell products with a trade agreement.” During Flinchbaugh’s presentation, a banker at the Ag Credit Conference asked the simple question: Who will win the trade war, the U.S. or China? “When you lose sales overseas, it’s like losing sleep. You never get it back. There is no way to win it.” Listen to the interview.
