FUTURE AG POLICY UNDER THE CURRENT ADMINISTRATION AND THE NEW CONGRESS
I remember President Harry S Truman coming through my hometown on the whistle stop train in 1948. I have followed every Presidential election since. To put it mildly, this one is unique. Both candidates have high unfavorable ratings.
This Congress is dysfunctional. It ranks with what Harry called the do nothing 80th Congress.
What does all this mean for ag policy? We face many issues in the coming months and years. Trade is number 1 specifically TPP. Add to that climate change, biotech, trust in science and government and a new farm bill under the new President.
Flinchbaugh will discuss these subjects in his usual blunt and straight forward way with an abundance of humor. You may not agree, but you will learn some things and you will laugh.
